  • You're born with it and you stay with it for the rest of your life.

  • You look at it every day and you never get bored of it.

  • It gives you intense pain, and it gives you immense pleasure.

  • Sometimes when you look in the mirror, you're reminded that it doesn't last forever.

  • You go on Instagram and you compare it with other ones, sometimes hoping you can change

  • it, obscure it, give it a bit of a makeover.

  • But whatever your body looks like, it's a marvel of engineering.

  • It's actually almost difficult to comprehend.

  • In the words of Shakespeare the human body is, “unlimited in thinking, admirable in

  • his shape and movement, angelic in action, godlike.”

  • Today you're going to see just how your body is infinitely amazing.

  • You might have heard that women are stronger than men when it comes to surviving diseases

  • and also in many other ways, but when it comes to brute force, men on average win hands down.

  • But do you know why that is?

  • It's said that on average men's upper bodies have much more muscle mass than the

  • average woman, as much as 75% more.

  • Men have stronger lower-body strength, too.

  • They grip harder, they throw harder, they punch harder, they run faster, and we'll

  • say this one last time, on average.

  • We've all just accepted this as a fact of life, but what we don't ask is why.

  • Why shouldn't women have evolved to be just as strong or stronger than men?

  • Well, scientists say men evolved to fight, men are designed for combat.

  • In some of the natural world, females are very often bigger than males, but that's

  • because they are designed to carry lots of eggs.

  • It's different for land-dwelling vertebrates, which includes humans.

  • Those males evolved to be bigger due to competition with other males regarding finding a female

  • to procreate with.

  • All this fighting over females in the past has led to men being more violent overall.

  • Men are responsible for something like 80 percent of violent crimes, while the prison

  • population at least in the US is made up of 93.2 percent of men as of April 2021.

  • Are men just naturally violent?

  • It's like this, according to one scientist, “Men are not more violent because they're

  • stronger, but stronger because they've needed to be more violent over evolutionary history,

  • which has shaped male psychology in all sorts of ways.”

  • So, never mind how puny you are, you've been designed to be a fighting machine.

  • But what about the brain, do men have a different kind of brain?

  • Ok, so we are walking on thin ice even bringing that up.

  • We don't want to offend anyone, so we'll remind you not to shoot the messenger.

  • If you are a scientist and you say that men's and women's brains are fundamentally different

  • you might be accused ofneuro­sexism”, but quite a few studies have shown that men's

  • brains work better at completing spatial and motor tasks.

  • They might look at a puzzle and have to think about how a shape can be manipulated to fit

  • in the right hole, and according to those studies, men will on average be better than

  • women at this.

  • Still, other scientists have called this a myth and indeed a kind of neuro-sexism, so

  • the jury is still out on this one.

  • One thing we do know for sure is men's brains are bigger, but that doesn't have any effect

  • on intelligence.

  • Men might have bigger parts of the brain for a reason, but again, this is still a controversial

  • issue.

  • Some studies have found that the parts of men's brains are bigger which are associated

  • with the survival instinct and reacting to stimuli.

  • Women might have bigger parts of the brain that are related to language and emotions.

  • Ok, so now we think we should get down to business and talk about that taboo subject

  • of the male phallus, the penis as your doctor will refer to it.

  • It's a pretty amazing thing to behold, even if it sometimes gets in the way of having

  • a quiet life.

  • First of all, it's a hard worker.

  • It even does the night shift.

  • Did you know that the average man will get three to five erections during the night,

  • often lasting as long as 30 minutes?

  • What's up with that?

  • It's not as if you need it in your sleep.

  • The medical term for this phenomenon isnocturnal penile tumescence”, something we imagine

  • you'd never say to your partner after she asks what is that pressure on her leg.

  • Don't worry darling, it's just nocturnal penile tumescence.”

  • Basically, you get wood when your parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated.

  • Sights, touch, memories, and even sounds can make this happen.

  • Arteries in your pecker dilate, blood flows in, and hey presto, you have lift off.

  • The penis is not a muscle by the way.

  • It's been described as more like a sponge that gets bigger when it fills with blood.

  • When you're sleeping, much of your body might slow down, but the parasympathetic nervous

  • system is still switched on.

  • You aren't getting a stiffy because of dreams or because of that leg of your lover, it's

  • just the fact your nervous system is functioning well.

  • Why it happens other than that is still a mystery to science.

  • One scientist said night time erections serve no purpose whatsoever and are merely a byproduct

  • of the nervous system, so don't worry about it if every time you wake up you feel like

  • you have a Toblerone stuffed into your underwear.

  • Ok, now to the question you all want answered- Is there such a thing as a grower and a shower?

  • Do some men walk around with great big dongs while others walk around with a lip balm in

  • their pants?

  • Well, just remember that a lip balm can almost double its size with a bit of rubbing.

  • There are such things as 'growers' and studies have proven it.

  • If you have a lip balm kind of John Thomas it is very likely you'll grow a lot more

  • than the guy with a flaccid Toblerone.

  • One study showed that out of 2770 men with small flaccid willies their growth was 86

  • percent when fully erect.

  • Meanwhile, the bigger boys only showed a growth of 47 percent.

  • Basically, things even out when men get down to business.

  • As the saying goes, don't judge a book by its cover.

  • Scientists say you cannot assess the size of the man's wiener until you see it in

  • all its glory.

  • Some studies have shown that about 80 percent of men are growers, and the rest are showers.

  • Staying with subjects that make people blush, you might not know that men have a G-Spot.

  • Yep, just tunnel about two inches into the rectum and you'll find it there.

  • It's at a place called the perineum between the scrotum and the anus and with a bit of

  • pressure, not too much, it can be activated.

  • It might also be stimulated when you're taking a poo, giving you the feeling of poo-phoria.

  • There are cases of men having what's been calledDefecation-induced orgasms.”

  • Dropping the kids off at the pool can be ecstatic, but usually they'll have to be at least

  • one very big kid.

  • You also might not know that men can produce milk and so can breastfeed.

  • Yep, that's true, although the man might have to take some hormonal drugs.

  • In 2002, there was a guy in Sri Lanka who fed his two babies because his wife was dying.

  • He stepped in and saved the day.

  • It doesn't usually happen without any drugs, although certain things can happen in the

  • male body that makes it produce more of the hormone prolactin.

  • One of those things is starvation.

  • When women are pregnant, the levels of prolactin in their body increases, but sometimes it

  • does in men, too, although that's an anomaly, not an evolutionary requirement in nature.

  • Due to hormones, men tend to stink a lot more than women.

  • On the other hand, women are better at picking up the scents.

  • According to science, the smell of men gives women a better idea of who they might be mating

  • with.

  • It's said women find men with high-testosterone more attractive, and they can sense this with

  • their olfactory sense.

  • Research has shown that single men tend to have higher testosterone levels than men with

  • partners, which makes sense in evolutionary terms.

  • Ok, onto something new, something that might stop men and women arguing about turning up

  • or down the heating in the house.

  • Did you know that men generally feel a little bit warmer than women?

  • You probably do know that, because no doubt you've been in a situation where she's

  • cold and you're not.

  • There's a simple reason for this other than what you are wearing.

  • Men generally have more muscle mass, and because of that, they burn more calories to fuel those

  • muscles.

  • This creates heat, and when that heat evaporates, it warms the skin.

  • As one doctor put it, men have their own little heaters.

  • Studies have shown that women tend to feel the most comfortable in a room that is slightly

  • hotter than a room men feel the most comfortable in.

  • So, don't argue, just accept you are different in this respect.

  • And when it comes to skin, men's skin is anywhere from 20-30 percent thicker than the

  • skin of a woman.

  • Men also tend to have firmer skin, which becomes more apparent in older age.

  • This is why women usually get wrinkles before men and so men often look younger than women

  • as they age.

  • Sorry, women.

  • As one scientist put it, “Female skin-thinning occurs at a significant pace after menopause.

  • Hence, signs of skin aging in older women are generally more pronounced as compared

  • to men in the same age group.”

  • Still, there are many factors, such as work, stress, and how many days you've been under

  • the sun trying to get a tan or grow some rice.

  • Talking about later life, men can actually get something that is not unlike PMS.

  • It's called Irritable Male Syndrome and usually happens when a man ages and his testosterone

  • levels drop.

  • It might happen at any time in life since testosterone levels do change in men for various

  • reasons.

  • They might suddenly drop and then they might increase, even within one day.

  • When this happens, men might experience fatigue, depression, low self-esteem, anger, anxiety,

  • moodiness.

  • When it does happen in older age and the levels seem to drop for good, that is called male

  • menopause.

  • Still, with some men, they have a gift that keeps on giving.

  • They can have children at a very late age, even if they might not be the bull on the

  • springs they used to be.

  • In 2010, a guy in India named Mr. Ramajit Raghav had cause to celebrate.

  • He had a child.

  • The strange thing is, he was 94.

  • And get this, he had another child two years later.

  • It's actually not uncommon for men to have kids when they are in their winter years.

  • The age-defying, rubber-legs lead singer of the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, had his eighth

  • kid when he was 73.

  • A man might have less chance of having a kid at an older age, but he can still produce

  • testosterone and sperm cells even though he might be walking around with a Zimmer frame.

  • Still, as he approaches those winter years there will be some changes.

  • He might not produce as much sperm as he did before and those sperm might not be as good

  • at swimming as they used to be.

  • It's usually in the 40s that the quality of sperm takes a hit.

  • Older men might also produce sperm that can lead to abnormalities in the child.

  • No man likes losing his hair, but it's a fact of life that many do.

  • Word on the street is bald men tend to be more sexual, due to what some people have

  • said is the increase in testosterone.

  • But is this a myth or is it true?

  • Firstly, don't worry baldies, when it comes to attraction, studies have shown that there

  • are many more things women think about than the mass of hair on a man's head.

  • Some studies have even shown that bald men are seen as more masculine and attractive

  • to women, but that's debatable.

  • Jason Statham's bald head isn't exactly comparable to a man who has a very unsuccessful

  • comb-over.

  • Studies have shown that women tend to be attracted to guys' that have shaved all their hair

  • off, rather than guys that let hanging curtains decorate their head.

  • As for baldness being related to virility, it's a complex matter.

  • Castrated men who have hardly any testosterone can still have hair, while guys with hardly

  • any hair might have low testosterone levels.

  • Genes are what make hair fall outt, not testosterone.

  • In conclusion, if you are bald, it's your mom and pop's fault, not the fact you are

  • a super-sexual being.

  • What about the Adam's Apple, why do men tend to get bigger ones?

  • This part of the body is made of cartilage and gets bigger when you hit puberty.

  • Men usually have a larger larynx and Adam's Apple and that's why they usually have deeper

  • voices, but with both men and women, how large these things grow is down to hormones.

  • Hence, some voices are deeper than others in both men and women.

  • As for why men tend to grow bigger voice boxes and Adam's Apples, some scientists say they

  • developed this deeper voice to attract the opposite sex and give off a more threatening

  • sound to male rivals.

  • Now you need to watch, “Are You The Alpha Male of Your Group?”

  • Or, have a look at, “Scientifically Proven Best Ways To Kiss.”

You're born with it and you stay with it for the rest of your life.
