Why is the penis mushroom shaped? 0 143

CHANCES are most blokes are very well acquainted with their manhood.

The shape and size will come as no surprise.

Most blokes know exactly what their manhood looks like, but do you know WHY it looks like it does?Getty – Contributor

But have you ever stopped to question WHY your todger is designed like that?

And no we’re not talking length here…or girth for that matter.

We’re talking the head of the penis if you will. The part that looks a little bit like a mushroom…sort of.

Why is the penis mushroom shaped?

Way back when, experts believe the penis evolved to become a “tool”, with a ridge to remove the semen of love rivals – basically to make sure you are the one that gets the girl pregnant. Survival of the fittest, and all.

Professor Gordon Gallup from the State University of New York led a team of scientists to investigate the anatomy of the human penis, and its use in 2003.

They found the thrust of the penis – and the ridge that separates the head from the shaft – could help clear a woman’s vagina and reproductive system of a previous lover’s sperm.

They tested their theory in the lab – with latex penises and model vaginas.

Mixing starch and water together, they found the ridge around the top of a man’s penis could scoop out more than 90 per cent of the “semen” substitute, in just one thrust.

Prof Gallup told the BBC at the time: “We theorize that as a consequence of competition for paternity, human males evolved uniquely configured penises that function to displace semen from the vagina left by other males.

“Thus, the human penis may enable males to substitute their semen for the semen of their competitors.”

He said they found evidence that couples tend to have more energetic sex if the woman has been suspected of cheating, or if a couple has been apart.

It could, he said, be down to a sub-conscious desire to rid his partner of any trace of another man’s semen.

Prof Gallup’s colleague, Rebecca Burch added: “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 maximising the likelihood of paternity,” in the study, published in the Journal of Evolutionary Psychology.

The theory dates from centuries ago when women would have sex with a number of partners, to increase their chances of getting pregnant.

So, while that might be why the human penis evolved as it did, chances are it will be less important to blokes these days.

What other penis shapes are there?

To be frank, there are so many different kinds of penis shapes.

There is no standard shape, and no penis should be considered normal or abnormal.

While most will be variations on the mushroom shape, they can have a variety of differences.

Size, girth, angle or circumcision are all among the factors that can lead men to have different looking penises.

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 41

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
