The largest erect human penis ever recorded is 13.5 inches long.

It belongs to New Yorker Jonah Cardeli Falcon, a bisexual American actor and talk-show host. His willy is 9.5 in (24.13 cm) flaccid, 13.5 in (34.29 cm) erect. But the huge penis is not a blessing - it rather condemns him to loneliness. He lives with his mom and his whale penis, without a girlfriend for 12 years.

\'When I meet people they find it hard to look me in the eye, they just see what\'s in my trousers. It\'s become a real problem. When I was younger I went out in tight pants and would sleep with a different person every night, but I became burned out and disillusioned. My last relationship ended in 1996. Now I just want to find a steady girlfriend who doesn\'t think I\'m a freak show\'.

Believe it or not, it exists. It's called Vulva Original, and they market it not as a perfume, but as a scent that people are supposed to apply one or two drops at a time. 

They market the product as both for men and women, to use for different types of purposes. It costs 24.50€ per vial. Though they assure that they follow strict terms of reference in the cosmetic insdustry, all they reveal is that it contains real organic parts.

It is well known that circumcision can be traced back to ancient Egypt. Culturally, it is still prevalent among Jewish and Islamic families, but is also fairly common throughout the US. The reason for this is partly because of American cornflake magnate John Harvey Kellogg. 

Kellogg declared a ‘war on masturbation’ at the end of the 19th century, which sparked an ‘anti-masturbation hysteria’ in society. This was in part because he was an influential politician. Many doctors thought that masturbation would lead to exhaustion, paralysis, and heart disease. 

In addition to recommending eating corn flakes as a means to prevent masturbation, Kellogg decided to use circumcision as a means also. At the time, it was hailed as a very practical idea. It was thought that not using any anesthetic would make boys associate masturbation with the pain felt during circumcision. 

The concept spread through English speaking countries, and because of its place in certain cultures and the likelihood that circumcised fathers will circumcise their sons, it is still very present today. You can read all about it at the source


Viagra was created to treat high blood pressure and heart disease.

When testing out the drug, they found that patients didn’t see relief for their symptoms, but they found that the drug did cause erections. Pfizer patented the drug in 1996, and in just two years, the FDA approved it for use in treating erectile dysfunction.

It's incredibly ironic, but prior to his presidency, FDR signed off on a secret Navy unit to seek out homosexuals. In 1919,  Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the assistant secretary of the Navy. While the Navy secretary was in Europe, FDR signed off on an undercover Navy unit to investigate homosexual acts within the military.

It later became known as the Newport Scandal. Newport, Rhode Island’s Naval Base had numerous complaints of sexual solicitation by males around the base. So, FDR’s Navy unit sought to entrap these men. Surprisingly, the unit was ordered to perform oral sex on suspected homosexuals on base, including a clergyman! Once the story broke, FDR claimed memory lapse and never admitted to signing off on the operation.

Surprisingly, this could have completely destroyed FDRs political career. Many people credit his later illness that left him paralyzed as the reason his career did not spiral down. FDR, of course, later went on to become the president of the US.


Girls go through puberty at a younger age, if their father isn’t present in their lives.

On average, a girl whose father leaves the family through a divorce or separation before she turns ten begins puberty 5 months earlier than a girl whose father stays. Furthermore, girls with positive relationships with fathers who are involved in their lives tend to begin puberty later in life than girls who do not. This has profound effects on the girls’ lives. Entering puberty before age 11 significantly increases the likelihood of having a teenage pregnancy.


The earliest porn films were made in 1896, just months after the premier of the Cinematograph.

Le Coucher de la Marie is widely regarded as one of the first, if not the first pornographic films ever made. It was a French film released by Eugène Pirou in 1896. Most of the film is lost, with only 2 minutes (out of 7) of foreplay still in existence. The film was very quick to capitalize on new technology; the cinematograph was patented in 1892. The first (non-porn) film to be played on the device in public was La Sortie des usines Lumière à Lyon in December 1895.

Women with a waist-to-hip ratio of 0.7 are generally rated as being more attractive.

This ratio makes for dimensions of somewhere around a 25-inch waist and 36-inch hips. Mathematicians at Cambridge University discovered that these proportions make for the ideally sexy walk, with "a more angular swaying and bounce to the hips."

Famous women that fit this figure include Jessica Alba and Venus de Milo! Marilyn Monroe unfortunately missed the cut by one hundredth of an inch. Check out this article in Gizmodo to see who else made the cut. Also, the ideal ratio for men is 0.9.

Say you're a strapping young gentleman in the cities of Gothenburg, Stockholm or Malmö. After a nice night out with your date, you find yourself in a situation where the possibility of having sex is very likely. There's only one problem, though. You don't have condoms. You're already heading home and there's no way for you to get the necessary protection to have safe sex. What are you supposed to do?

You call the "Cho-San Express," a truck that goes around the city, and for only 50 kronor (less than $10), you get 10 condoms delivered to the convenience of your home! The truck was introduced by a condom maker that was alarmed by the low rate of condom use by young people. According to them, only 25% of young people between 16-25 used condoms.

The truck was more about sending a humorous, but educational message, rather than a permanent campaign. As a PR stunt, however, it's pretty clever, don't you think?


Weeping releases a chemical that reduces sexual arousal in men. The chemical releases a signal that says they are not interested in romance at the moment, which men instinctively respond to by shutting down feelings of arousal. To be specific, this refers to deeply emotional tears, not those caused by getting something in the eye, or a moderately sad movie. 

Typically, those arousal-killing chemicals are only released during full emotional weeping. Neuroscientist Noam Sobel of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, put together an experiment to test this. Sobel collected jars of tears from women and dipped pads in them. 

They placed the pads under men's noses and showed them pictures of women. The men smelling tears rated the faces as less attractive when compared to men who did not smell tears. To support it scientifically, their testosterone levels were measured, and, not surprisingly, they dropped. 


While rare, sometimes people are born with certain anomalies that may or may not be noticeable. We've covered, for example, kids who are born with extra limbs or fingers and need to be operated on to get rid of them. It's estimated that somewhere between 0.4 and 6% of women are born with an extra breast or even pairs of breasts. Most of them do not develop fully.

The tissue is often misdiagnosed as being lymphatic or cystic. They're usually located in the lower armpit and are known as accessory breasts. Yet some others are born with an extra nipple or nipples, usually located under the breasts. While it's an oddity, neither the extra nipples nor the accessory breasts need to be removed in usual circumstances.


There’s a disease that can slow down or even prevent puberty.

Kallmann syndrome or Kallmann’s syndrome is a dysfunction of the endocrine system. The hypothalamus fails to produce Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), so your body doesn’t develop secondary sexual characteristics. These would include vocal changes, pubic hair and other body hair, enlargement of the genitals, development of breasts for women, and redistribution of muscle tissue for men.

Left untreated, people with Kallmann’s syndrome will be infertile. Treatment involves using hormone replacement therapy to induce puberty artificially. Even with treatment, Kallmann’s syndrome sufferers tend to lose their ability to smell.

According to studies, the average person will fall in love an average of seven times before they decide to tie the knot. Falling out of love that many times may make it difficult because it often leads to 'frustration attraction' which is when the person that is broken up with feels even more attracted to the person that dumped him.

What's worse, even after that average of 7 times, that marriage might not even last! The divorce rate for the United States is at around 50% and it's rising every year. Check out this article for advice in how to avoid the ways in which people bring down their relationships


A woman in China and her boyfriend were taking part in a passionate kissing session. Apparently, the boyfriend managed to rupture her eardrum with a kiss! The passionate kissing the guy did reduced the pressure of the woman's mouth, which pulled her eardrum out. This caused her eardrum to rupture and her to lose part of her hearing! She was taken to the hospital, completely deaf from her left ear.


It turns out that the name Magnum is mostly just a marketing scheme. The name and branding of Magnum makes guys feel like they need bigger condoms than normal. Trojan hopes that branding them as bigger will make men prefer the brand more than other brands. 

In reality, Magnums are a mere 0.32-inches longer than regular Trojans and BOTH are 2 inches wide at the base. The main difference between Magnums and regular condoms are in the width of the shaft, with the Magnums being 0.5-inches wider at the head than regular Trojans.

A funny side-note, a rival brand, LifeStyles, has a brand called "King XL." The stats for those are the same as REGULAR Trojans. Psychology can be the darndest thing!
