Just read on for everything you never knew about the male physique.
The male body conceals within itself a multitude of surprises. At GayPopBuzz, we reveal surprising facts about men that have to do with their hormones, their brains and their hair.
Also known as the laryngeal prominence, the Adam’s apple sits right on top of the thyroid gland.
So what makes Adam’s apples stick out more in grown men?
Because grown men have larger voice boxes, theirs are a lot more prominent. This is also the reason why dudes speak in deeper tones. Personally I find Adam’s apples extremely attractive in men, right up there with jawline and abs.
Male breasts have milk ducts, and some mammary tissue. They also have oxytocin and prolactin, the hormones responsible for milk production. However, milk production in men represents an abnormality for the male body. Men don’t typically produce milk from their breasts, but under certain circumstances, they can!
This can occur when too much of the hormone prolactin is produced and this might be the result of certain kinds of medical treatment used to stimulate the heart, problems with the pituitary gland and hypothalamus, use of opioids, or due to extreme hunger.
Growers vs. Show-ers
Showers, like Jon Hamm, have large flaccid penises that don’t increase as much when erect, whereas growers are relatively small when soft but expand significantly when hard.
However, a stretched penis is a good predictor of its length when erect, according to a 2000 study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research. Another study reports that 79 percent of men have growers, while 21 percent have showers.

Male G spot
The male G-Spot is actually what is commonly referred to as the prostate gland and it’s about two inches in the rectum toward the belly.

Exploring the prostate can bring new heights of sexual excitement, pleasure or even intense orgasms for men. When you start to seek it out, proceed with caution and don’t go too hard, too fast. Be careful – the prostate is very sensitive. Do not poke and prod, but instead caress and stroke. Press gently. Use feather-light touches,” Michael Alvear says. “You’re looking for a walnut-sized fleshy ball hiding behind the anal wall. Finding it is a little like playing hide-and-seek, only you’re using your finger rather than your eyes.”
Hormones called androgens stimulate vellus hair to darken and coarsen. The armpit and pubic areas are particularly sensitive to testosterone and other androgens, which is why both men and women grow dark hair in those regions after puberty.
But men have higher levels of androgens, so their hair growth changes more than women’s. Body hair darkens and facial hair sprouts, usually starting at the upper lip and spreading to the cheeks and chin.
Despite of what age or race you have… manhood rules!
