Part Two:Achieving complete Sexual Fulfillment

The Male Sex Organs

In spite of the fact that the sexual relationship, if it is to be successful, depends more on attitude and emotional (psychology)than mere anatomy, there is no reason why the wife (and for that matter, the husband) should not be familiar with the way the sexual mechanism works. Good sexual relations can only be enhanced by knowledge.

Most men and women by the time they are ready to get married are familiar with the
external organs appearance of a knowledge of sex organs of the opposite sex. We are more concerned here with how these organs are related directly and indirectly to a fulfilling sexual relationship.

Form and Structure of the Sex Parts

Ordinarily, the penis is a soft, flaccid organ. It is filled with numerous blood vessels and these account for the changes in size of which this organ is capable. The penis and testicles are also sensitive to temperature and both tend to move closer to the body when cold. You may have heard the phrase around the swimming hole "half an inch cold." The penis tends to shorten, or retract and the testicles move, ascending to reach the warmth of the body.

> The blood vessels in the penis are activated by erotic though to fill with blood to various stages, causing the organ to swell and harden. At many times during the day, in every man, the penis changes its size slightly, adjusting to the degree of
sexual boredom thought, temperature, and even the need to urinate. Through the penis runs the urethra, a tube connecting to the bladder. The urethra serves the double purpose of serving for the passage of semen and urine.

The penis is richly endowed with nerves, especially so at its head or glans-penis. Most of these nerves are located on the ridge. They are extremely sensitive and are responsible for producing much of the sexual sensation a man enjoys. A woman wishing to stimulate a man would do well to pay particular attention in her caresses to this portion of the organ.

The glans is covered by a sheath of skin called the fore- skin or prepuce. This is best rolled back during sexual intercourse to expose the sensitive glans beneath. Many men, especially those of the Jewish and Mohammedan faiths, have this skin removed in an operation called circumcision. The glans is then permanently exposed. There has been some argument. largely overrated and unproven, that men who are circumcised can prolong the sexual act to a greater degree than the uncircumcised man. This is supposedly due to the fact that the exposed glans has toughened somewhat and is not as sensitive. The fact is that most "prolonging the sexual act" is done in the man's mind, not in his organ. We'll have more to say about this later. A recent cancer scare erupted among women concerning the incidence of cancer in women who are married to circumcised versus uncircumcised men. Again, we maintain that this kind of panic is based on evidence too scanty as yet to be in any way conclusive.

The testicles are contained in a two-lobed sac that hangs from behind the penis. Inside this sac the flat, oval-shaped bodies can be felt. (This sac itself is called the scrotum.) Generally one of the testicles hangs lower than the other, usually the left one, but occasionally the right. Either is normal. The testicles prepare the principal element of the sexual secretion, released at a man's climax. The secretion (semen) passes through a long, single tube called the vas deferens on its way from the testicles to the urethra.

In newborn babies the testicles are usually contained in the pelvis. They descend into the scrotum about the eighth month. If they descend earlier, it is usually within the first week or two after birth. Some men afflicted with a condition known as cryptorchidism have undescended testicles. In an adult this generally means sterility, as it tends to indicate malformed and imperfect testicles. If only one testicle is present in the scrotum, the condition is known as monorchidism and is not particularly serious, for a man with one testicle can be just as fertile as a man with both. Some men are very sensitive about the fact that both are not present A wife's love affair would take care to measure whatever remarks she might make if her husband should be constructed in this way.

As a man becomes sexually excited two pea-sized glands called Cowper's Glands go to work. They secrete drops of a clear, sticky secretion which is alkaline in its chemical nature. The purpose of these drops is to neutralize the acid content in the urethra created by the passage of urine through this tube. Spermatozoa, the life-bearing "wrigglers" carried in the semen, are extremely sensitive to acid. Many couples confuse the secretion of Cowper's glands with the semen itself; some wives believe that this initial minute discharge is a sign of over excitement or weakness in their husbands. Without it, however, their husbands could be quite sterile.

The Prostate Gland is about the size of a chestnut. It is like a doughnut, surrounding the urethra at the neck of the bladder, and its function is primarily sexual. It is endowed with nerves that increase sexual sensation. It also contains the nerves signaling the
hidden desire for urinary release. During the orgasm it releases a secretion which mingles with that of the Seminal Vesicles (pouch like storehouses of semen located behind the bladder) and the Ejaculatory Ducts. The secretions of all three combine to give body to the seminal fluid.

The prostate is heir to a common condition known as prostatitis. In this diseased state, the gland tends to become fibrous and to swell, giving rise to such uncomfortable symptoms of venereal diseases as urinary frequency and interference with the sexual process that may lead to complete impotency. If the condition is caught early enough, a surgical operation can, in effect, shave the fibrous tissue and remove the pressure from the urethral canal; sometimes, however, it is necessary to remove the prostate gland entirely. The prostate is also a possible cancer site, especially in middle-aged men, and for this reason should be checked each year. Furthermore, the gonococci germs love to infect the prostate where they can become entrenched and are difficult to eradicate. Needless to say, a gonorrheal infection of the prostate can be quite serious and is generally painful.

The seminal fluid which is forcibly discharged during orgasm is a milky white color with a characteristic odor. It is the vehicle for the fascinating spermatozoa--tiny "creatures" with polywog-shaped bodies that can be seen clearly under a microscope. They are about one five-hundredth of an inch long and have whip-like tails with which they propel themselves rapidly. In one ejaculation a man may release many millions of them. When the spermatozoa contact the "egg" of a woman and break through its "shell" by enzyme action, conception takes place.

There are those diehards who insist that the main purpose of the sexual act is the release into the female of the spermatozoa for the purpose of conception. Fortunately, these people are a diminishing minority. Today we know that the male; body, if it is reasonably healthy, can produce a virtually limitless supply of spermatozoa and that they are not "wasted" if conception does not take place. Today sex should be considered a healthy means of obtaining ultimate pleasure, and with birth control the highly developed and readily available science it is, there is no need for an errant pregnancy by surprise to result from the pleasures of the sexual act-except through sheer ignorance or carelessness of the participants.

The Sexual Chemistry the Male

Equally important to their function of producing the seminal fluid is the testicles' function of secreting into the blood stream the male hormone. This hormone, produced in the interstitial spaces between the seminal-producing tubes in the testicles, is responsible for the male, secondary sex characteristics, sex drive, male energy, mental alertness, etc. The eunuch (a castrated man) is weak, beardless, round- shouldered and often has a layer of soft body fat like that of women. The male sex hormone combines with the other endocrine glands such as the thyroid, adrenal, pituitary, etc. to produce much of the physical appearance and mental and emotional factors that are the sum and substance of any particular man.
