In general, I am pretty fond of my penis. I mean… it guides way too many of my decisions, but I am grateful for the happy times it has brought into my life. I try to care for it properly. Still, as much as I appreciate it, my penis has primarily been used for 1) recreation and 2) utility. I had no idea that there was a third special purpose… the penis as a barometer for good health.
