The odd reason your penis is shaped like a mushroom – and it’s to do with CHEATING 0 137

THE penis comes in all shapes and sizes – but there is a surprising reason why the end is mushroom-shaped.

Scientists claim it is an evolutionary design that comes back to infidelity.

When considering why the human penis looks the way it does, a team of scientists in New York ran a series of experiments.

They first theorised that the head of the penis – which is rather mushroom shaped – is in fact a “tool” to remove the semen of love rivals.

It’s enough to make you squirm, but makes evolutionary sense. 

Men wanted to ensure they are the one who carries on their lineage – survival of the fittest, and all.

To ensure theirs is the only semen inside a woman, the ridge that separates the head from the shaft, called the coronal ridge, may help.

During penetration, it can assist with removing semen from inside the vagina. 

The researchers, led by Professor Gordon Gallup from the State University of New York, put it bluntly.

Their paper said: “If a female copulated with more than one male within a short period of time, this would allow subsequent males to ‘scoop out’ semen left by others before ejaculating.”

The team put their theory to the test in 2003, using artificial genitals and fake semen made of mixed starch and water.

Indeed, the latex penis and its ridge was able to scoop out more than 90 per cent of the “semen” substitute, in just one thrust.

A member with no coronal ridge only managed to remove 35 per cent of the semen.

Depth of thrusting was also important for clearing the vagina.

Prof Gallup told the BBC: “We theorise 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.”

Cavemen versus the modern man

While men’s penises haven’t changed since the beginning of time, sex and relationships certainly have.

The scooping out mechanism would have been much more useful hundreds of thousands of years ago when humans were considerably more occupied with procreating.

However, our instinctive sexual desires and behaviours in many ways, have stayed the same.

The researchers said that in their research, they found evidence men still unconsciously use their penis as a “semen displacement device”.

Two surveys of around 500 college students – both men and women – were conducted.

Participants recalled that sex with partners involved “deeper and more vigorous penile thrusting” if they had been separarted, or if the female was suspected of cheating.

It puts seedy doubts over the phrase “absence makes the heart grow fonder”, but backs the researchers’ theory.

Prof Gallup said: “Under conditions that raise the threat of female infidelity, college students reported changes in sexual behavior that would serve to purge the vagina of foreign semen prior to ejaculation.”

Some experts said they thought the idea was flawed and did not serve as a strong enough explaination on why the penis is shaped the way it is.

There is no standard shape of penis and while most tips will mushroom-like, 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 42

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.
