penis, phallus, membernoun
the male organ of copulation (`member' is a euphemism)
The erectile external sexual organ of males, used in copulation, and in mammals, also for urination.
The male sexual organ for copulation and urination; the tubular portion of the male genitalia (excluding the scrotum).
Etymology: From penis, from pes-.
A penis (plural penises or penes () is the primary sexual organ that male animals use to inseminate females (or hermaphrodites) during copulation. Such organs occur in many animals, both vertebrate and invertebrate, but males do not bear a penis in every animal species. Furthermore, penises are not necessarily homologous. The term penis applies to many intromittent organs, but not to all. As an example, the intromittent organ of most cephalopoda is the hectocotylus, a specialized arm, and male spiders use their pedipalps. Even within the Vertebrata there are morphological variants with specific terminology, such as hemipenes. In most species of animals in which there is an organ that might reasonably be described as a penis, it has no major function other than intromission, or at least conveying the sperm to the female, but in the placental mammals the penis bears the distal part of the urethra, which discharges both urine during urination and semen during copulation.
The penis is the male external reproductive organ, responsible for sexual intercourse, urination, and ejaculation. It typically consists of a shaft, glans (head), and urethral opening, and is composed of erectile tissue that allows for erection during sexual arousal.
the male member, or organ of generation
Penis is a general term for the organs with which male and hermaphrodite animals introduce sperm into receptive females during copulation. Such organs occur in many animals, both vertebrate and invertebrate, but males do not bear a penis in every animal species, and in those species in which the male does bear a so-called penis, the penes in the various species are not necessarily homologous. For example, the penis of a mammal is at most analogous to the penis of a male insect or barnacle. The term penis applies to many reproductive intromittent organs, but not to all; for example the intromittent organ of most cephalopoda is the hectocotylus, a specialised arm, and male spiders use their pedipalps. In most species of animals in which there is an organ that might reasonably be described as a penis, it has no major function other than intromission, or at least conveying the sperm to the female, but in the placental mammals the penis bears the distal part of the urethra, which discharges both urine during urination and semen during copulation as the occasion requires.

What began as consensual kissing quickly turned into a sexual assault, mr. Fairfax put his hand behind my neck and forcefully pushed my head towards his crotch.

These stories are true. At the time, I said to Comedian Louis C.K. that what I did was OK because I never showed a woman my( penis) without asking first, which is also true, but what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your( penis) isn't a question. It's a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.

The gun is good. The penis is evil. The penis shoots seeds, and makes new life to poison the earth with a plague of men, as once it was. But the gun shoots death, and purifies the earth of the filth of brutals. Go forth... and kill!
Doctors prey on them for surgeries when they don't need it, it's a bit like having a size 8 shoe and wanting a size 11. You can't make the foot bigger ; it's a very complex set of bones. If you try to make [ the penis ] bigger, you stop it working most of the time. Most of them start off with a psychological problem, with an average or slightly small penis. They have surgery, end up $ 50,000 poorer with a deformed penis and a lot more psychological trouble.
