what the penis does in the woman's vagina, it dose the same in a folded palm
during masturbation. There is nothing like excessive masturbation resulting in
the weakening of the penis as the tongue dose not become weak in a talkative
person, neither dose it become strong if one remains silent! Physiologically
speaking, it is the disuseandnotuse, which leads to atrophy. Sigmund Freud
acknowledged that masturbation can relieve stress. it also helps avoid
sexually transmitted infections including HIV/AIDS. As mentioned by an
Ayurvedic expert, masturbation is an habit and not a disease.

Semen is vital only for the sole purpose of conception. Semen is
secreted continuously by the genital apparatus-seminal vesicles. prostrate and
testes. Sperms contribute less than one per cent in the totel volume of semen.
Semen cannot be stogray indefinitely even if one wants to. The calories you
burn per ejaculate equals to mere half a glass of lime juice!

The Size of the Penis varies from one individual to another. The
average sexual length of the vegina is 6 inches and only the outer 1/3rd part
is sensitive. the inner 2/3rd part is virtually insensitive. Hence, for female

inches plus. It is a man's technique and not his penis size that characterises
the lover in him. A bigger size dose not make a better lover..
