The foreskin protects the glans and the urinary meatus (opening) and performs many other integrated functions. The immunological functions of the foreskin help protect the body from pathogens. The sphincter action of the preputial orifice prevents entry of infectious contaminants. Glands secrete lysozyme, an enzyme that breaks down cell walls of pathogens. The sub-preputial moisture lubricates and protects the mucosal lining of the glans and inner foreskin. The high vascularization of the…

And to this I have to say, "If you are peeing out  of your vagina you have a fistula that needs looked at."  You pee out of your urethra. In fact: your urinary meatus.  Teach your kids to say that if you must be PC.

This patient presents with evidence of a lower urinary tract injury with a high suspicion for a urethral injury and requires a retrograde urethrogram for diagnosis. Due to the length of the urethra in men, urethral injury is far more common in men than in women. Gross hematuria indicates injury to the lower urinary tract but blood at the urethral meatus raises the suspicion for urethral injury.

Urinary system - (1) The Kidneys - The two kidneys filter waste and excess water from the blood and produce urine. Urine is being produced every minute of the day.  (2) The Ureters- Each kidney has a thin, hollow tube that connects to the bladder. Urine flows down the ureters from the kidneys and empties into the bladder. The ureters have one-way valves in them, so even if you were to stand on your head urine could not flow back to the kidneys from the bladder. (3) The Bladder - The bladder…

Infant circumcision versus adult circumcision. Even if an intact man grows up and wants to be circumcised,  it hurts him less. I'm so sick of "It's better to do it as a baby." No. No it is not.

I love the way my underwear chafes against my sensitive, internal organ now that you've removed its protective foreskin. Said no man ever.

"I don't disagree with circumcision if the penis is attached to the man making the decision. - Don't remove his right to choose!" (Gotta agree with this one despite it not necessarily being feminist.)
