Brock opens the episode by taking us through the etymology of the term penis. Penis is derived from the Latin word for tail. There is also the Greek translation of phallus which means “swell.” The word later came to describe items of penile nature in Latin.

Since Lina D put Westley’s and Brock’s knowledge of the vulva to the test, they decide to flip the script and quiz her about the parts of the penis. Lina D breaks it down! They just weren’t ready.
The penis is technically broken into 3 major areas:
- The root or the base
- The body or the middle of the penis
- The glans or the head
The more detailed parts of the penis are:
- The head or Glans
- Corpus cavernosum: Two columns of tissue running along the sides of the penis. Blood fills this tissue to cause an erection.
- Corpus spongiosum: A column of sponge-like tissue running along the front of the penis and ending at the glans penis; it fills with blood during an erection, keeping the urethra — which runs through it — open.
- The urethra runs through the corpus spongiosum, conducting urine out of the body.

- The male g-spot or the prostate
Circumcised vs. uncircumcised
- In uncircumcised men, the glans is covered with pink, moist tissue called mucosa. Covering the glans is the foreskin (prepuce).
- In circumcised men, the foreskin is surgically removed and the mucosa on the glans transforms into dry skin.
Lina D talks about her preference between circumcised vs. uncircumcised penises
Westley and Brock are curious about what women really think about the penis. Lina D is prepared to answer the question based on her experience and also has some stats to give a taste of what other women think.
Size doesn’t matter as much as women say they do. Follow the link for more details and stats https://www.dred.com/uk/does-size-matter/
- 21.4% Not important
- 67.4% Somewhat important
- 11.2% Very important
What does matter:
- Manscaping: Cleanliness (or at least looking well- groomed) is next to godliness too, as the study also found appearing well-trimmed ranked higher than penis size for women
Lina D also talks about her experiences with growers and showers and the struggles of discovering that the guy she was going to hook-up with had a small penis.
All men’s penises are different too. Here is a fun read on how penises are different: (http://www.cosmopolitan.com/uk/love-sex/sex/a9576710/things-you-need-to-know-about-penises/)
To wrap up this episode, the NFD talk about the skeet skeet AKA semen, and if it is bad to swallow.
Semen is made up of only one percent sperm; the rest is composed of over 200 separate proteins, as well as vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, calcium, chlorine, citric acid, fructose, lactic acid, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, vitamin B12, and zinc.
Westley asks Lina D what her experience has been with tasting semen and then shares what other women have said about the taste of ejaculate. Read this fun article to see all the words that have been used to describe how semen tastes: https://thoughtcatalog.com/steve-mueller/2015/11/what-does-semen-taste-like/
At the point of ejaculation, semen travels at 28 miles per hour.
