Three British educational institutions were commissioned by the government
to discover why the human penis is the shaped the way it is. Oxford
University allocated a budget of 500,000 pounds for research. After 2 years
they concluded that the reason the head of the penis is wider than the shaft
is that it fits better, when in situ, so to speak. This would prevent
leakage of semen and increase the probability of successful fertilisation.
Cambridge University spent 750,000 pounds on a research programme that lasted
3 years. The results showed that the penis widened near the tip because it
maximised the number of nerve endings stimulated during sex. This would lead
to increased sensitivity and a better chance of impregnation.
Finally, the Open University spent 2.50 pounds on a copy of Playboy and 10
minutes in the staff toilet, only to discover that the penis widens at the
tip in order to prevent your hand from slipping off the end.
