Nicole (Nikki) Prause, Ph.D is an impressive neuroscientist working mostly in the field of sex research. I see her name pop up all the time, as an author on interesting journal articles, and as an expert voice in newspaper articles most often on the topic of sex and porn addiction. I was lucky enough to get Nikki on the phone to ask her some of my questions about her research.
The mushroom-cap shaped glans at the tip of a human penis is very special and unique. Other great apes have a much simpler penis shape (feel free to use Google images for this one), and while we’re so caught up on the complexities of the human vagina I think we often overlook and undermine the intricacies of dick. If we pay closer attention to penile anatomy we can often stumble upon great meaning.
