The penis is the primary external male sexual organ that also serves as the urinal duct. The penis becomes erect when a man is sexually aroused. This happens when blood flows to the penis and is then retained within spongy bodies there. Both the brain (to send a signal) and the heart (to pump blood to the penis) must work properly to maintain an erection. The average erect size is anywhere between 5.1 to 5.9 inches (12.9 to 15 cm).
