Freebase

  1. Penis

    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.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

Examples of penis in a Sentence

  1. Laura Vitarelli:

    He got up with us and followed us to the door and said,' Are you sure you want to leave ?' And he pulled out his penis and it was fully erect, it was very uncomfortable for the both of us, and we knew we had to get out of there so we left as fast as we could.

  2. Gordon Muir:

    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.

  3. Elsbeth Reitzema:

  4. Louis C.K.:

    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.

  5. Vanessa Tyson:

    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. Only then did I realize that he had unbuckled his belt, unzipped his pants, and taken out his penis. He then forced his penis into my mouth.
