Hello. Thanks for visiting our evolutionary philosophy of human sexuality pages. We are currently researching good quality sites relating to our biological and cultural sexual evolution - as a way of collecting and presenting the most important / latest knowledge and research.
Below you will find summaries of articles & websites on Male
Sexuality, i.e. latest research on evolution, men's sexual health
& behaviour, the penis, erections, semen & sperm competition, orgasm,
desire, hormones, fetish & fantasy, masturbation, sex education, pornography,
sexual orientation, love, family & relationships, infidelity, sexually
transmitted diseases, prostate cancer, infertility, premature ejaculation,
erectile dysfunction etc.
Compared with other search terms, 'male' gets relatively few searches a day (though 'man' is higher with 12,000 searches, as is 'naked men' 19,000 and 'man health' 7,000).
The top related searches for male are;
male (2,389), male masturbation (4,314), male model (3,093), nude male (2,288), male stripper (1,898), naked male celebrities (1,067), male orgasm (995), male masturbation techniques (993), gay male (971), male ejaculation (900), male escort (870)
We hope you find the following Male Sexuality articles & websites

A very interesting essay from the journal of Evolutionary Psychology on sperm competition and its role in shaping the human penis, (size, length, width, forceful ejaculation), evolutionary strategies for successful fertilization i.e. semen displacement and coagulation. On sexual intercourse and evolutionary benefits of deep penis thrusting, function of the foreskin and effects of circumcision, premature ejaculation, female reproductive strategies i.e. copulation with multiple partners, human sexual behaviour and wife rape (males having sex with their partner if suspecting them of infidelity).
Evidence that people have been promiscuous for a long time
Lotharios everywhere will be pleased to hear that monogamy does not appear to be a natural human state. That, at least, is the conclusion of a study conducted by Michael Hammer at the University of Arizona in Tucson, and just published in Nature Genetics. By examining the DNA of living people, Dr Hammer and his colleagues have found that far fewer men than women pass their genes on to subsequent generations.

By studying men watching pornographic videos, researchers in Canada have pinpointed areas of the brain that become active when the men tried to avoid being stimulated. In evolutionary terms, these regions of restraint (the prefrontal cortex) are newer than the more primitive areas where the sexual urges arise in the first place (the limbic system).
Violence is predominately a male phenomena. When it comes to sperm makers, success is likely to crown those who outcompete their rivals, and so, in species after species, it is the males who are larger, nastier, more likely to be armed with lethal weaponry and a violent disposition to match. Natural selection has outfitted males with the tools for success in male-male competition, much of it violent.
The myths regarding male sexuality have been particularly tenacious because
men have traditionally not talked about their sexual feelings and experiences
honestly and openly with each other.
Myths debunked include penis size, that men are always willing and want sex, very few men are virgins, sex requires an erection, sex is over when a man comes, all orgasms are earth shattering, men in relationships don't masturbate.

From the essay: 'During the very early stages of fetal life all humans are basically bisexual. Among other things, you have two sets of primitive plumbing - one male, one female. Only one set develops into a mature urogenital system, but you retain traces of the other for the rest of your life.
It's tempting, therefore, to say that male nipples are yet another vestige of your carefree bisexual youth. Male nipples though are not vestigial. They're full-sized and fully equipped with blood vessels, nerves, and all the usual appurtenances of functioning organs. .. Both male and female babies are born with the main milk ducts intact - the gland that produces milk is there in the male, but it remains undeveloped unless stimulated by the female hormone, estrogen.'

From the website: 'Androgens are sex hormones produced primarily by a male's
testes, but are also produced in small amounts by the female's ovaries and
the adrenal gland.
Androgens help trigger the development of the testes and penis in the male fetus. They jump start the process of puberty and influence the development of facial, body and pubic hair, deepening of the voice, and muscle development, the male secondary sex characteristics. After puberty, androgens, specifically testosterone, play a role in the regulation of the sex drive.'

Six semen samples were collected from each of 38 infertile men via masturbation
and sexual intercourse using a semen collection device (SCD).
The volume of seminal plasma, total sperm count, sperm motility, and percentage of normal spermatozoa were significantly higher in samples collected at intercourse than masturbation. In addition, the markers of the secretory function of the prostate and the outcome of sperm function tests were also significantly higher.
'The data indicates that at least 37% of the male population has some
homosexual experience between the beginning of adolescence and old age.
Among the males who remain unmarried until the age of 35, almost 50 % have
had a homosexual experience.
It is true that there are persons in the population whose histories are exclusively heterosexual and exclusively homosexual. But the record shows that there is a considerable portion of the population whose members have combined both homosexual and heterosexual experience.'
Three decades of research on men's sexual arousal show patterns that clearly
track sexual orientation - gay men overwhelmingly become sexually aroused
by images of men and heterosexual men by images of women.
In contrast to men, both homosexual and heterosexual women showed a bisexual pattern of psychological as well as genital arousal. That is, heterosexual women were just as sexually aroused by watching female stimuli as by watching male stimuli, even though they prefer having sex with men rather than women.
Few studies have assessed the role of pituitary and gonadal hormones on
age related changes in sexual behavior in healthy men. We conducted an evaluation
of sexual function and behavior in 77 healthy married men aged 45 - 74 years.
Significant age related decreases in sexual desire, sexual arousal and activity, and increases in erectile problems were noted.
A study reports that erectile dysfunction is significantly and independently
associated with age, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and lack of physical
As many as 18 million men may be affected with erectile dysfunction in the United States. The recent development of effective oral medications to treat erectile dysfunction has raised awareness, however lifestyle changes such as exercise and nutrition may prevent erectile function.
A study from Harvard Health Professionals shows that chronic illness and the medications used to treat them account for many of the sexual problems of older men. Sexual dysfunction is most prevalent in men with illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke and depression. 'The secret to preserving sexuality is to stay healthy and to build healthy relationships - and both require a series of wise choices throughout life.' (Harvey B. Simon, M.D.)

Preliminary findings from clinicians at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre in Montreal, show that men with erectile dysfunction are more likely to have cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease affects approximately 40,000 Canadian men annually.
An interesting essay written by two sexologists who experiment with Viagra.
They are concerned that the emotional or psychological aspects of erectile
dysfunction (stress, anxiety, disconnection from partner, lack of communication)
are not being addressed by doctors prescribing Viagra (which helps the physical
Note: It is very difficult to prove that sexual disorders are physical or psychological. They are an interconnected mix of both.
As Viagra moves into the bloodstream, it starts to block an enzyme called PDE-5. Blocking the enzyme eventually increases blood flow to areas where PDE-5 is most heavily concentrated - the penis, nose and skin. Diminished blood flow to the penis is the cause of most erectile dysfunction problems.
We get a lot of people writing to us asking questions about sex. So we have added an 'Ask a Question' feature to our sexuality pages - to help share questions and answers as a way of helping one another.
Please use Facebook Connect (below) to add your questions / comments - the best questions and answers will be added to the page.
