Urol­o­gist Aaron Spitz, au­thor of The Pe­nis Book, ex­plains how arousal plays out for most men

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - LOVE -

1 Sen­sory stim­uli,

such as the smell of your per­fume, the way you ca­ress his arm, the taste of your lips, or even just think­ing about see­ing you naked, send sig­nals to his brain that jump­start blood flow to his pri­vates. Con­grats, you’ve of­fi­cially turned him on.

2 A flood of hor­mones

(oxy­tocin, testos­terone and dopamine) gives him a boost of sex­ual de­sire. Psst: talk dirty to him now.

3 Dur­ing fore­play,

blood fills the erec­tile tis­sue in his pe­nis, ex­pand­ing it to its max. The pres­sure forces the veins shut, trap­ping blood in­side, caus­ing an erec­tion. Mus­cles at the base of his shaft flex, mak­ing him lit­er­ally throb.

4 Mean­while, the skin around his tes­ti­cles,

aka scro­tum, tight­ens, caus­ing his dan­glers to rise up to­wards his body. The sur­round­ing veins fill with blood, which may make his balls feel larger when you fon­dle them dur­ing the deed.

5 Heads-up: most guys or­gasm

after five to 10 min­utes of in­ter­course. Right be­fore re­lease, his blad­der closes and a mix­ture of sperm and other flu­ids com­bine in the ure­thra chan­nel. Then his pelvic-floor mus­cles start pro­pel­ling it all out via squeeze and-re­lease con­trac­tions. These pumps are largely what make his cli­max feel so in­sanely plea­sur­able.
