  • Shrinkage?

    OK, anyone ever thought about why shrinkage might have been beneficial to Grok?
    I went to the pool today, it was a little chili, and I started wondering...
    (1) I am 100% on-board with the primal exercise blue print. It reduces the problem of exercise down to its simplest form and provides a solution that can be used for a lifetime.

    (2) I'm not on-board with the primal diet blue print. In fact, I'm not on-board with any diet plan but a man can hope to find the right answer before it's too late.

    bwahahaha!

    sorry. all these boob and menstrual threads, i shouldn't laugh at male shrinkage. it's certainly nothing to shake a stick at.

    anyway, your entire genetic future is cupped in two thin sacks of skin (more or less). shrinkage is to pull the goods in close to the body for protection against assault or low temperatures.

      Sperm are highly temperature sensitive (which is also why the testicles are external--they need to be a little cooler than the internal body temp), so men's bits tend to droop or shrink up as the temperature changes in order to more effectively produce swimmers. Don't think many dudes want to try it, but icing your balls is supposed to lower sperm count so you're not as likely to produce unplanned Groklings.

        i thought shrinkage was just something for people to point and laugh at
        beautiful
        yeah you are

        Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
        lol

          No shrinking violets here...

          Some men also dangle the boys in hot water baths to decrease sperm production I believe...
          IMO... just go get a freaking vasectomy. It's really not that bad. Husband says it was the best decision he ever made.
          They now have the temporary 10yr reversible vasectomy that is less invasive...
          Vasectomies for everyone!
          Hell.. If I had nuts I'd do it.

              Why couldn't mother nature just provide an on/off switch?

                that would be awesome. i think we'd have far fewer people in the world today if both men and women had on/off switches. though i don't know what that has to do with protecting balls.

                  but if the testicles are brought closer to the heat, wouldnt that make other bits look....less shrinked?

                    not if the other item shrinks as well.

                      it all shrinks? I get the physiology of testicles shrinking, just not the rest.

                      requires experimentation!

                        the penis is delicate too. if the clitoris hung out like a penis and someone was aiming a kick to it i'd hope it would retract too
                        beautiful
                        yeah you are

                          I went to a nude beach and at the beginning I was hanging all long and loose and I was like aww yeah but then the ocean breeze got chilly and I shrank a bit and I was like awww no so I tried imagining sexy things but my semi was just weird-looking.

                            So does sitting in a hot tub, which is infinitely more comfortable and even down right relaxing!

                            But yes, you've got muscles in your scrotum to allow it to pull your testes closer when more warmth is called for, or to hang out in the breeze when they need to cool off.

                            I suspect the penis, since it is so vascular, shrinks due to decreased blood flow in cold temperatures (just think of how much your fingers can shrink in the cold, and they have fewer blood vessels - I know my rings always fal right off when it gets too chilly) . . . . different method than the scrotum uses, but same results . . . and for similar reasons, don't want you twig and berries to get frost bite, now do we?

                              Well what one of the other posters wrote was that it is all about keeping the sperm at the right temperature, to maximize reproductive success.

                              Just another example of our genes still living in our paleo past but our minds living in the twilight zone future.
