Beautiful, buoyant and continuously entertaining, the male pleasure parts are full of surprises and can be endlessly fun to play with. Knowing how it works and which are the most sensitive areas to stimulate, is a great way to please your partner, yourself and create intimacy in your relationship.

Male Reproductive Anatomy

Identify the Pleasure Zones - the Penis, Scrotum, Testicles, Perineum, Prostate Gland, and Anus

Penis

Volumes have been written about this blooming organ,

Glans

Also known as the head of the penis. The glans is the most sensitive part of the male genitalia. Full of delicious nerve-endings (approximately 4,000), the glans are covered in uncircumcised men, only becoming exposed as the penis gets erect. In circumcised men the glans are always exposed. The analogous organ in a woman is her clitoris. To learn more about Women's Sexual Anatomy, click here

Frenulum

The frenulum is the junction point on the underside of the penis between the glans (head) and shaft of the penis. This 1 inch area is considered to be the most sensitive part on the penis.

Coronal Ridge

The coronal ridge is the ridge of flesh that circles the penis and connects the head of the penis to the shaft.

Urethra

Located at in the tip of the head of the penis, the urethra is the entrance to the bladder, and the passage where urine and semen passes out of the body.

Foreskin

The skin that covers the head (glans) of the penis. The foreskin contains nerve endings and is the part that is removed during circumcision.

Corpa Cavernosa

The Corpa Cavernosa is the spongy tissue that runs along the sides of the shaft of the penis. When a man becomes aroused these fill with blood, resulting in an erection.

Scrotum

The scrotum is the sac that protects the testicles and controls the temperature of the testes, making ideal conditions for sperm production and storage. The scrotum appears larger and hangs down more in warmer temperatures. As the temperature drops, the scrotum will move closer to the body, at times completely disappearing into the body to keep warm.

The scrotum can be sensitive and stimulating to touch. It comes from analogous embryological tissue as is found in the vagina, and has a similar number of nerve endings that respond to stroking, licking and cupping.

Testicles

The testes are the reproductive organs in men, producing sperm and semen.

Perineum

The perineum is the pleasantly sensitive skin between the base of the scrotum and the anus. Many men enjoy this area being stroked, or having firm pressure applied.

Prostate Gland (P-Spot)Prostate gland male sexuality

The prostate has three main functions, with the official function being the creation of nutrient-rich fluid for sperm health and protection as the sperm moves through the penis and inside the vagina. The prostate gland also presses on the urethra in such a way that urine does not mix with sperm.

The third function is pleasure. Stimulating the prostate gland can be very enjoyable for many men, and stimulating it during arousal can increase the intensity of the male orgasm. To learn about relevant products recommended by Bloom, click here

Anus

The anus is one area that cannot be missed. This jewel of sensation has some of the highest concentration of pleasurable nerve endings in the body, only second to the genitalia. No wonder it feels so good!

The anus is made up of a cone of muscle that has two draw-string like circular muscles. The first (most outside) muscle is under voluntary control and the second ring of muscle is not under voluntary control.

Playing with the outer area around the anus, or putting something just inside the opening can add a pleasurable sensation to any sexual encounter through the pudendal nerve, while moving deeper inside you will be accessing pleasure through the pelvic nerve.

Penis size: Does it matter?

Well, yes and no. Yes, because a longer penis has been associated with more vaginal (in particular, cervical) orgasms. And a girthier penis is also associated with more sensation at the entrance of the vagina and G-Spot.

No, in that vaginal sensation is secondary to the stimulation of the clitoris. Most women get the majority of their sexual pleasure from the external stimulation of the clitoris, and the penis is not a necessary part of external clitoral stimulation.

This is a wonderfully written piece! I never thought about men's "pleasure parts" in such a poetic, joyful way: "Beautiful, buoyant and continuously entertaining". Thank you for this informative article.
