Let’s Admit!!! There are always those few questions which we all at some point of time always seek answers but didn’t. Either too embarrassed or just never paid enough attention. So, here they are…Just a few of the questions you want answered, which you don’t want to ask.

#15. Why do we like to smell our own farts?

In a blind smell test, scientists confirmed that we actually do prefer the smell of our own toots because the bacteria which creates the smell is unique to each person. “When you smell someone else’s Silent But Deadly, your brain detects it as something that is trying to harm your body because of the bad smell, and actually, farts can spread disease,”

#14. Why do guys get morning wood?

Although the science on this is hardly firm, the theories are most interesting. First of all let’s call Morning wood by its scientific name– nocturnal penile tumescence . It’s a perfectly natural occurrence experienced by healthy men 3-5 times a night regardless of what kind of dream they have. It is theorized that the body triggers NPT to stretch out the cavernosum (the two sponge-like regions that fill with blood to cause erection), something that helps prevent bed-wetting and erectile dysfunction.

#13. Why do erect penises curve slightly to the left (or right)?

Despite what you might have heard, it has nothing to do with masturbation. Almost all healthy males notice that their penis favors one direction or the other. The curve is usually slight, and should not be cause for alarm. The direction in which it points is decided by the ligament that surrounds the corpus cavernosum (basically the blood filling tissues of the penis) which is called Tunica Albuginea. Differences in elasticity of this two-chambered organ causes slight curvature of the penis when erect.

#12. Is it OK to hold in farts?

Farts are a natural part of the digestive process. If you feel one, it means your body has excess gas it needs to expel, and you should probably let it out. But what if it’s socially impossible to let one fly? Hold it in, and the urge usually passes, but that’s not necessarily a good thing for your bowels. Not farting farts can cause gas, bloating, and other uncomfortable symptoms, and if you do it too often, repressing gas can cause hemorrhoids or a distended bowel. The good news is, even if you hold in every single fart all day long, they’ll all come out as soon as you fall asleep.

#11. Why do we throw up when we get dizzy?

On a basic level your brain thinks it is being poisoned, usually due to a mismatch in body motion/balance in relation to your vision. Therefore your brain wants to rid this intoxication from your body (aka vomiting).
