Physiology of Peni*

When you get sexuall* aroused, the parasympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system gets stimulated. Such stimulation causes the release of Nitric Oxide:

Nitric Oxide is a potent vasodilator and it causes an increase of blood flow in the arteries of your peni*. At the same time, veins carrying blood out of peni* gets constricted. As a result, you get an erecti*n.

Testosterone also acts as a vasodilator and causes an increase of blood flow. The above said events are applicable here as well.

So you can two clear factors - 
  • Testosterone.
  • Blood flow.
See you just learned the physiology of an erecti*n. Proud of yourself?

Causes of shrinking of your peni*

  • Ageing - As you grow older, the testosterone level in your body decreases as well. As previously stated, decreasing testosterone levels cause a decrease blood flow to your peni* and thereby it doesn't get as big as it used to before.
  • Fibres - As you age, non-elastic collagen fibres gets accumulated in corpora cavernosa, commonly known as the erecti*n chamber of the peni*. Decreased stretchability means decreased size.
  • Blood Flow - When you get older, the walls of your arteries lose stretchability as well. As a result, plaque made up of cholesterol, fat begins to fill up the arteries. So, blood flow is decreased. The decrease of blood flow causes a decrease in erecti*n size as well.
There's also another factor that is often ignored. And that's your weight. As your belly fat increases, it begins to accumulate at the base of your peni* as well. So, it looks smaller compared to normal.
