2 Erection Coordinated by autonomic nervous system –Arteries expand Capacity for erection is present at birth Psychogenic (mind) physiogenic erections (body)

3 Penis Size Penis size is seen as a symbol of virility Erect penises show less variation than flaccid Size NOT related to sexual satisfaction Penile augmentation –#1 cosmetic surgery for British men Genital retraction syndrome (GRS) –Koro, shrinking into body
