I am a Bio informatician by profession, and for us structure and sequence of amino acid linkages are crucial in function.

and Similarly Penis is one such organ that might have come across many evolutionary changes to keep the progeny.

I would like to know why its not like a plain cylinder? and why it has Arrow or Anchor like head ?

Is there any locking mechanism in female sexual organism that will lock once the penis enters it ?

Thanks,

Well, perhaps obviously, since we can't speak to the designer, we don't have any good way of knowing the answer to this one. [Smile]

However, there are a couple reasons why it's certainly helpful that the penis is shaped as it is when we're talking about heterosexual intercourse.

For starters, an object which does not taper, but which is just as wide at the top as lower down, is not as easy or comfortable to insert into the vagina.

To boot, the ride of the penis certainly doesn't "lock" anything (nor need to), but it does rather ingeniously provide extra stimulus to both the vaginal opening as well as the G-spot.

But too, do bear in mind that the natural penis has a foreskin, and so the shape of the head of the penis is fairly important per that foreskin being able to attach at the top.

I Don't know why but my foreskin went behind the cut,if you know what I meant.

it happened way beyond... may be like 4 years before I knew what Masturbation was.

is it common ?

Do you mean that you're circumcised and you're asking whether it is a common practice? Or are you asking whether masturbation is a common practice?

In either case, yes, it's fairly common for men to be circumcised and for people of any gender to masturbate. Circumcision is required in a few religions or is done for cultural reaons, usually stemming from the belief that circumcising a boy makes cleaning the genitals easier. Nowadays, with technology and knowledge about the subject what it is, it doesn't make much difference and cleaning is relatively easy with or without the foreskin.

Well,
After so much of browsing, I understood neither masturbation or circumcising. are not uncommon.

My Question is my skin is not circumcised, but will fall behind the penis head,instead of covering it.

I am asking about this,and If its common or if I should be able to do any thing to bring my foreskin back and cover my penis head completely.

What I fear is head loosing its sensibility and sensivity on repetitive movements, if uncovered.
