Thanks Jim and Paul!
I have another question tho, will masturbating change the direction the penis slants towards? e.g. Left or right? and will masturbating change the shape of the penis over time?
Yes, this is a common ("urban") mythology; that depending on which hand you use to masturbate, or which way you grip, you may subtly "bend" your penis one way or the other, or upward or downward.
Well, three things. Firstly, you will note that in respect to the stretching exercises we explain here, stretching is dependent on consistent
stress on skin (or whatever other body tissue might be involved) for serious lengths of time
. Masturbation (as we know it) is the very opposite
of this, you are moving the skin quite rapidly back and forth and the pressure on the erectile bodies is similarly oscillating. This if anything, encourages the tissues to resist
stretching, just as your knees resist being deformed from the pressure as you stride. And let's face it, the time
you spend doing this, is I trust, not all that great! (You get erections for much longer periods during the night anyway!)
Secondly, as I explain in regard to why "jelqing" is going to be of little or no effect in enlarging the penis, the corpora cavernosae - the erectile bodies of the penis - are much
tougher than the skin; their very purpose
is to maintain their shape against whatever you use your penis for, if it were otherwise, your penis would "wear out", bending out of shape over the years of sexual activity. Clearly it does not
unless you develop Peyronie's Disease, which is a quite separate matter.
Finally, what does
account for the left/ right "slant" of your penis, is your "handedness" but unrelated to masturbation. The result of being "right-handed" is generally that your right hand grows
slightly more than your left and correspondingly your right foot is usually just a little (sometimes even a shoe size) larger than the left. Well, you have two corpora cavernosae in your penis, and if the right one also
grows more than the left, then even a minor difference will exert leverage and slant your penis to the left, or if the left is a little larger, slant it to the right. It's as simple as that.
