If there is other life in the universe, it could have evolved look like almost anything. And yet, as our movies and TV shows have proven, a disproportionate amount of them end up looking like cocks and balls. Here are a dozen extra-phallic terrestrials science fiction has dropped trou and revealed to us.
I mean look at it. Look at it. There's no way some deranged wizard doesn't have a few of these things secretly hiding around his magic tower, waiting to attack unwary adventurers (or at least seriously freak them out).
When it comes to scientific studies of genitalia, whether it be human or otherwise, there's an unquestionable bias towards penises. As a new study shows, it's problem that's actually getting worse — and it's getting in the way of science.
After the jump you'll find a video, the first 33 seconds of which contain the best statement ever: The early astronaut urination system used condoms, sized small, medium, and large. But sizes were renamed "large, gigantic, and humongous" when the men would all grab the larges, regardless of their true size. Magical.
For many men, getting an erection is as simple as breathing. But it's an incredibly complex process involving a precise sequence of psychological and physiological events that can easily go wrong. Here's how erections work — and how science is helping millions of men keep it up.
The online condom vendor Condomania has compiled its sales data to produce the latest in a long line of not-at-all-definitive penis-size rankings.
Sometimes a medical technique is so awesome that researchers are tempted to tell its story more than once. This seems to be the case with the dramatic rescue of a man's penis in India. The doctors involved just got in trouble for using it as a case study in multiple scientific journals.
David Neevel has always been on the cutting edge of incredibly necessary technology. Now, he's outdone himself, making a machine that can not only draw a penis with the mere push of a button, but also write the word "penis." It's amazing. Still, I feel bad for all the people whose penis-drawing jobs have now been…
Before we begin this week’s “Postal Apocalypse,” I’d like to stop for a moment to commemorate the fact that this week features my very first question about superhero penises! I am 100% confident it will be the first of many. Make sure to email your questions (penis or otherwise) to firstname.lastname@example.org!
A new study by Australian researchers shows that well-endowed guys are more attractive to women — but only to a point.
You're looking at one of the many maps included in Bulgarian designer Yanko Tsvetkov's ingenious Mapping Stereotypes project, a collection of national stereotype maps designed "from the point of view of regular bigots."
Of the many unlikeable and inaccurate stereotypes maintained about animals in popular consciousness, among the most frustrating is what I term "old man turtle". This is the idea that turtles (by which I mean, all members of Testudines) are like decrepit, weak, bony little old men housed inside a box. It's not fair,…
All across the globe, there are monuments and tourist attractions that transform our otherwise boring reality into a gleefully tumescent fantasia. Here are the world's most otherworldly phallic vacation destinations.
Why does Spore, the new evolution game from EA/Maxis, give us hope for the future of humanity? Because the first thing everybody did with the "creature creator" editor was create a bunch of, shall we say, genitally-oriented organisms. Call it Sporn. EA is unlikely to let you share these creatures with other Spore…
In just a thousand years, evolution will turn us all into supermodels, says British evolutionary psychologist and media whore Oliver Curry. That's because "sexual selection" naturally means that only people with the nicest faces and genitals get to produce babies — which anybody who's been to a baby shower will…
