I'm just asking this out of curiosity. I've read that the longest recorded penis size is like 14in. But is there a size where if someone gets an erection they could pass out from lack of blood, or something along those lines?
Part of the penis is formed of cavernous tissue grouped in two corpora cavernosa. During ejaculation the corpora cavernosa are filled with blood. However, the quantity of blood needed for them to be filled is never big enough for a person to experience hypotension in other parts of the body and thus become unconscious.
