In Greek art, the male human nude was used as a canon of human perfection. The sensuous male form in motion was considered the crowning achievement of Greek sculpture. Its asymmetrical balance, this motion while at rest, and the resulting harmony of opposites is the essence of male beauty. The following will discuss the male sexual anatomy, physiology, and overall sexual health. In examining the male sexual body, the anatomy encompasses both the external and the internal sex organs. The external sex organs consist of the penis and the scrotum. The internal sex organs consist of the testes, genital ducts, and the fluid producing glands. The systems of internal and external organs that are the male genitals are also referred to as the urogenital system.<br><br>The penis is the male organ that is responsible for the transmission of urine and semen from the body. It is an expanding flexible rod which, splits into an Y and is attached to the underside of the pubic bone. It consists of fibrous tissue, nerves, blood vessels, and three cylinders of erectile tissue. This tissue soaks up blood and expands when the brain signals certain arteries to begin pumping blood through, which produces an erection. The purpose of an erection in the reproductive process is to allow the penis to become firm enough to enter a vagina.<br><br>The scrotum is a loose sac of skin, fascia, and smooth muscle that encloses and supports the testes outside the body at an optimum temperature for the production of sperm. The scrotum is divided into two parts with each containing a testis. The testes produce sperm and the sex hormone testosterone. "In most men the left testis hangs somewhat lower than the right one, although the opposite may sometimes occur." (Byer 153) The epididymis is a coiled tube about 20ft long, which runs along the posterior side of the testis. It stores sperm and can retain them for up to six weeks, during which time the sperm become mature. The viability of the sperm in the
On the female body there are many external sex organs. One of the organs is the vulva. Vulva comes from a Latin term that means “wrapper” or “covering”. There are six different parts to the vulva. The different parts are: the Mons Veneris; Labia Majora; Labia Minora; the Clitoris and the vaginal opening. The mons veneris consists of fatty tissue that covers the joint of the pubic bones in front of the body. It is below the abdomen and above the clitoris. The mons veneris cushions….
Men's Health Issues- Sexual Fitness and Nutrition -How diet and nutrition affect sexuality.
Men's sexual health depends on an optimal level of fitness and nutrition. Almost all men experience a decrease in sexual desire, at one point or another in their lives. This can be due to illness, disability, fatigue, obesity, low self esteem, medications, recreational drugs, past sexual experiences, and/or loss of interest in a partner. Men's sexual health is put at risk with commonplace contributors….
Puberty begins at age 8 to 10 for most girls in the United States. It is triggered by rising levels of GnRH, stimulates anterior lobe of pituitary to produce: FSH and LH. FSH stimulates developing ovarian follicles and they begin to secrete estrogen, progesterone, inhibin, and a small amount of androgen. Thelarche is the onset of breast development is the earliest noticeable sign of puberty. Pubarche is the appearance of pubic and axillary hair, sebaceous glands, and axillary glands. Menarche….
Sexual Dysfunction and Therapy
Sexual Dysfunctions such as premature ejaculation in men and Inability to have orgasms in women have been the cause of a great deal of mental anguish, not to mention marital friction. Most Americans either have a sexual dysfunction or are affected by one in their partner. However, thanks to the likes of Masters and Johnson who have written several publications to help us understand the causes of sexual dysfunction and the rapid treatment therapy for such disorders….

Male and Female Sexual Response
As we all know, the human body’s sexual responses have been explained and defined in many different ways. There are religious aspects and beliefs that in some cultures play a major role in a person’s sexual response. In the text Sexuality Today, we learn a lot about the male and female sexual response and how they are similar and different in some ways. I will be explaining the Masters and Johnson Four-Phase Model, and how they observed the sexual responses….
intercourse to prevent pregnancy and the spread of some sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and HIV. The male condom is a barrier contraceptive made of latex or polyurethane. It’s also made out of animal skin in which it does not protect against the spread of infections, Latex rubber. The condom must be fitted over the erect penis. The male condom is a thin cover that fits over a man 's erect penis. Condoms are available without a prescription and are inexpensive. You can….

A male (♂) organism is the physiological sex which produces sperm. Each spermatozoon can fuse with a larger female gamete, or ovum, in the process of fertilization. A male cannot reproduce sexually without access to at least one ovum from a female, but some organisms can reproduce both sexually and asexually. Most male mammals, including male humans, have a Y chromosome, which codes for the production of larger amounts of testosterone to develop male reproductive organs.
Not all species share a….
