Why Is The Penis Shaped Like A Mushroom According To Science?

The phallus’ purpose is more than just to fertilize and bring pleasure.

Men have been living with their penises their whole lives. Heterosexual women have been receiving pleasure from the male organ. But have you really ever wondered (while looking or thinking about it) why a penis is shaped the way it is?

Sure, sex organs are not flattering to look at but as human beings, that’s not most of us are concerned about. We’re more concerned about what these organs are capable of doing. But if you’re one to question about its peculiar shape then this article might just change the way you think about the phallus.

An evolutionary psychologist said that a penis is basically a "tool."

Renowned psychologist Gordon Gallup theorized that a man’s phallus is a “tool” from nature manufactured for many years. Gallup’s works are being cited by psychologist and associate professor, Jesse Bering in his book, titled “Why Is The Penis Shaped Like That and Other Reflections on Being Human.”

The specialized human tool is said to have developed through national selection.

If you think the penis is simply a sexual organ meant to fertilize or that size doesn’t matter, it only shows that you have more to learn from Gallup.

Gallup explains that the human penis is significantly different from that of other animal species.

For instance, the human phallus is large and has the “distinctive mushroom-capped glans” that forms a coronal ridge underneath. Gallup and his team did an extensive research including studying men and women having sex under magnetic imaging to come up with a conclusion, that size does matter.

“A longer penis would not only have been an advantage for leaving semen in a less accessible part of the vagina, but by filling and expanding the vagina it also would aid and abet the displacement of semen left by other males as a means of maximizing the likelihood of paternity.”

This can be referred to as the “semen displacement theory,” which basically means that the sperm can still compete with other sperm for the fertilization of an egg. A sperm can live for several days inside the woman’s cervical fluid. During that time, she can still have other sexual partners that can possibly fertilize her egg. That said, a man’s phallus has that distinct shape as a way to “displace” other semen inside the vagina. In other words, the ridge part acts as a “device” that would “scoop out” other sperm so that the current partner will have the winning juice.
