# 6 is definitely true; my bf took me to a truck and tractor pull a while ago, and it was awesome :-D

You`re right - blood vessel dilation/constriction is muscular. I was missing that entirely and thinking of skeletal muscles.

But there`s still the deal-breaking issue of not having any blood moving.

If you`re just going to pump some other fluid in there, it`s not really the same thing. Increase the pressure a bit and it`ll stretch a bit more. I suppose you could use some sort of pressure sensor and a standard pressure for comparison purposes.

Is it actually done, though?

angilion, there are muscles in the penis. those muscles that dilate/contract blood vessels letting blood in or out of penis. its these muscles that help fill the penis with blood that can be used to fill the penis with some other liquid with blood properties. but, i dont know, these are all just suggestions for what they may do.

@Trypno: Fossils can be carbon dated to determine approximately the time period in which the organism died. Though, the fact that I have to even say this leads me to believe that you`re some kind of fundamentalist who will go on to dispute carbon dating.

Does #7 mean all of the time or just like once in a blue moon?

Because I know for me I`ve never thought of someone else...

"The threat of a Tyrannosaurus charging while in the throes of passion, was enough to make him even quicker, which is why anxiety is still one of the leading causes of PE."

Myth #13 Its not always about how small a mans penis is, its fair to say that, in some cases, it happens to be the woman`s unusually large vagina.

cobrakiller:

Erections are not directly caused by muscles. There are no muscles in a human penis itself. Muscle changes the flow of blood, which causes more blood to flow into the penis, which causes an erection. But in a corpse there isn`t blood flowing so no amount of artificially induced contraction of any muscle will result in an erection.

You can`t definitively prove that my friend, sorry. All fossils can prove is that something died, not when they lived or when they died, but that they definitely died.

cobra, you`d have to have a working pump, or someone doing the pumping(CPR/bypass). I`ve seen people right after they`ve died with and without CPR and I`ve never seen it. Now, priapisms are a whole nother topic altogether.

angilion, have you ever had a biology lab in shich you flex and relax the muscles of an animal postmortem? It`s probably along those same lines; get to the body quickly enough after death, make sure there is a Na/K gradient and send electric current through it. Thats how we did it with muscles of the arms, legs, and thoracic sections. The penile section really shouldn`t be much different.

or they have a much simpler way of doing it that we just dont know about, like a penis enlarger pump kind of tool.

How common is it for corpses to get erections? At the point of death, maybe. Lividity, maybe. But a normal erection after death? No. No blood flow, no erection.

You know, the myth of differing penis size isn`t true. Its easy, scientific fact.

How do scientists know, you ask? You probably envision awkward studies involving rulers and boners and giggling medical assistants, and pervert volunteers who want to demonstrate their prowess (and a lack of "smaller" males who won`t show up to get their micro-penis measured).

Its easier than that.

THEY LOOK AT DEAD BODIES. Pathologists and morticians have daily opportunity to gather data on penis size if they wanted.

Everyone dies, of every race, and some are dying every day. Its easy to compare penis size on cadavers, they don`t act bashful, and you have an entirely random sample of the population.

Thus doctors know - old white hippies can be hung like horses, and black men can have micro penises.
