Black couple upset about bedroom problems

There are many rumors and misconceptions floating around about the male member, but this one is true. Smoking makes the penis smaller, according to Dr. Draion Burch, also known as Dr. Drai. He is a board-certified obstetrician, gynecologist and nationally-recognized author, speaker, consultant and media expert on reproductive health. He also wrote a book called “20 Things You May Not Know About The Penis.

Facts and misconceptions

In his book, he reveals other facts about the male sex organ. For instance, he says that the rumor about the size of black men's penises is just that, a myth. The largest one known is 9.5 inches and 13.5 inches fully extended, and it belongs to a white man. They come in all shapes and sizes, but the most important thing is penis health, not size.

What you should be concerned about

Just as women do regular breast exams to look for abnormalities, men should examine their members and note anything that is out of the ordinary. Sores, blisters, warts, lumps, ulcers or thickening of the skin are not normal and should be checked out by a doctor. It could be a sign of cancer. Yes, men can develop cancer of the penis.

Dr. Drai says that quitting smoking is always a good idea for better heart and lung health, but it is also a good idea for penis health. Smoking can actually make the penis smaller. Other health habits such as eating healthy, getting plenty of sleep, and maintaining a low cholesterol and low sugar diet are good for penis health as well as overall health.
