Well, a friend of mine said that he couldn't have sex because every time he got an erection he fainted from lack of blood to his brain.

Could it be more than half a pint?

This is to settle a debate in our studio.

half a pint?

two cups?

16 ounces?

Sheesh!!

A single popsicle is like 2 ozs.

Imagine one eight times bigger!!

Or are you guys especially endowed?

Half a pint is equal to a cup, or eight ounces.

You are talking about an ounce of blood, or less. Even John Holmes didn't use a cup! (pun intended)

Half a pint is one cup, actually. A single cup is about 14.4 cubic inches.

Now, if we model an erect penis as a right circular cylinder -- a shape which it appears to closely resemble -- we can determine the volume contained therein. An average (white male) erect penis is 6.2 inches long and 3.7 inches in circumference. Total volume is then 6.75 cubic inches, a factor of two less than the OP's "half a pint," and this without subtracting initial, flaccid volume (although, in my experience, there is a noticeable difference between initial and final volume).

It is still possible, of course, that males with behemoth members, substantially outweighing the "average" penis, might require as much as a half pint of blood to fully awaken their trouser snake. Said member, though, would need to have a much increased length and/or cross-sectional area. Should the OP locate such a specimin, I would recommend a tightly controlled series of measurements in both possible states in order to assure accurate calculations.

For this fun experiment you can do at home you will need:
1 graduated cylinder
An erect penis (human)


Well the average volume of the human body is supposedly .1 m^3. The average amount of blood in a human is 6 quarts. Thats 60 quarts of blood per cubic meter of human. Quick!!! junior scientists, to the lab. Get a graduated cylinder fill it to the top with water, then stick an erected penis in there. If this turns you on, that's a bonus. Pull him out and measure how much the water level dropped due to water being forced out by the volume of the penis, that's the volume of the penis. Convert this into cubic meters (if it's in ML, divide by a billion), then multiply this number by the average quarts of blood in a cubic meter (60) to get a rough estimate of the answer to this question.

If your self-confident (or used someone elses penis), post the results here and we can have fun trying to derive your length.

It of course depends a lot on size.

Volume can be calculated by multiplying cross sectional area (pi times diameter) by length (using a cylinder as an approximation). Volume of blood can be estimated by subtracting the flaccid volume from the erect.

For an "average" penis, let's say the change is from 1.25 inch diameter x 3 inch length to 1.5 inch x 6 inch. That gives a volume change of about 106 cc, or about 3.5 oz. or 1/5 of a pint.

For someone of Long Dong Silver's dimension's, let's assume a change from 2 inch diameter x 9 inches to 3 inches x 18 inches. This gives a volume change of about 729 cc, or 24 oz, or 1.5 pints.

I won't be dipping ANYTHING into ANYTHING ELSE while at work.

This isn't just a skin-deep question:
They don't start at the front and extend 6.2in out - the penisy flesh is embedded quite a bit further into the body - how far in is that bit and how much blood does it contain?

And get your F's.

.1 m is 3.937 inches. A bit small for a human body. Even cubed.

Especially cubed.

It's not (.1 m)^3, it's .1m^3, that is not a tenth of a meter cubed but a tenth of a cubed meter.

Maybe I'm missing something in your post, but if the question is specifcally how much blood is in the erect penis, would one not follow this procedure?

1. Insert flaccid penis into graduated beaker filled with water
2. Remove penis and measure how much water is left.
3. Subtract that measurement from the original volume of water and that's the volume of a flaccid penis.
4. Insert erect penis into graduated beaker filled with water
5. Remove penis and measure how much water is left.
6. Subtract that measurement from the original volume of water and that's the volume of an erect penis.
7. Subtract the volume obtained in step 3 from the volume obtained in step 6 and that's the volume of blood that was transferred to the penis to make it erect.

The reason I would suggest going to these lengths (no pun intended) is because your calculation of blood/m^3 would be an average and there could be significant differences in blood/m^3 between various body parts.

It is quite a bit smaller if she has been on anti-androgens for some time.

Think about it. A cubic meter is a thousand liters. If the volume of a human is 0.1 cubic meters, then that's a hundred liters. Assuming we're somewhere around the same density as water (give or take - we're within the same ballpark) that 0.1 cubic meters equals a hundred kilos. Since the average human probably doesn't (yet) weigh a hundred kilos, then the 0.1 number is not a bit small - it must have been rounded up.

It also means that if you store them efficiently, you could fit a lot more children onto a school bus.

Call me Frank, your right my method assumes that blood is spread evenly through the body, and thus is only a rough estimate. It does estimate the total amount of blood, though, which is what the OP asked for. If I'm understanding you correctly, your method only finds the difference in the amount of blood in between an erect penis and a flacid one.

excalibre, your right my estimate for the average human volume seems a bit much. It was just the first one I found on google. As to this:

I've been trying to sell my idea for a "child pulper" to the county school board for years. Unfortunately the de-pulpification process, which returns the children to their original, inefficent shapes is still somewhat flawed.

Couldn't you just find an erect penis, cut it off, and squeeze it into a graduated cylinder until it is flaccid?

I don't see why that should delay the implementation of the working module. After all, the first can opener wasn't invented until ten years after the first canned food.

BULLSHIT!!!!!

I've read cites that say they're closer to 5.4 inches long. Damnit.

My bookmarks got wiped or I'd link the study. I found it here... someone will be a"long" eventually.

Couldn't you take the blood pressure of a man without an erection and then take it again when he's aroused - wouldn't the increased volume cause a measurable drop in bp? If the ammount of blood in him was known (or estimated) couldn't the volume of his penis be calculate?

You're being whooshed. As Malodorous noted I was jokingly putting the parentheses in a different place, making it (0.1m)3. That's 0.001 cubic meter, or one liter.

There's a joke in here about dense packing of penises, but I'm not going there.

I already calculated the volume above. Just multiply the cross-sectional area (pi times diameter in cm) by length in cm, which will give you cubic cm, which equals ml.

Experimental data

Chronos Kitchen Labs being sorely underfunded, our facility unfortunately does not contain graduated cylindars of a size appropriate to perform this experiment. Improvisations in equipment were therefore necessary. The apparatus for this experiment consisted of the following:

1 Cleveland Indians souvenir beverage cup, volume approx. 24 fluid ounces
1 plastic measuring cup, volume 1 American cup (8 fluid ounces
1 plastic measuring cup, volume 1/8 American cup (1 fluid ounce)
1 adult male human penis, 27.5 years old, Caucasian
1 adult male human scrotum, same specs as above
1 bathtub
Sufficient quantities of DHMO

Because of the lack of a measuring vessel of appropriate dimension in Chronos Kitchen Labs, the Cleveland Indians souvenir cup was used as the displacement chamber. The displacement chamber was filled to the brim with DHMO, and placed in the bathtub (which served as overflow containment system), where the human penis was lowered into the displacement chamber to the maximum extent allowed (the edges of the displacement chamber were flush with the surface of the skin surrounding the experimental specimen). Experimental difficulties were found in attempting to lower the penis alone into the chamber, and the scrotum was therefore lowered into the chamber as well. The staff of Chronos Kitchen Labs recognizes that this may introduce random error into the measured results; however, since the scrotum was included in both trials, no systematic effect should be observed in the difference. After removal of the specimen, the displacement chamber was refilled using the measuring cups, to determine the volume of DHMO displaced by the specimen (and therefore of the specimen itself).

The first trial was performed with the specimen in a flaccid state. On measuring, 1.0 cups (8.0 fluid ounces) of DHMO were displaced in this experiment. The experimental specimen was then exposed to a set of visual, auditory, and tactile stimuli until the specimen reached a turgid state, whereupon the experiment was repeated. On this second trial, the measurement procedure was repeated, and it was found that 1 cup 6.1 ounces (14.1 fluid ounces) of DHMO were displaced.

The sample size for this experiment was 100% of the specimens available to Chronos Kitchen Labs for study, and we may therefore reasonably conclude that specimens in this population increase in volume by an average of 6.1 fluid ounces. Probable sources for error in this experiment include spillage of DHMO from the displacement chamber while specimen was inserted and measurement error in reading volumes from the measuring cups. However, since these sources of error can be expected to have applied to the same degree in both trials, a determination cannot be made whether this measurement represents an underestimate or overestimate of the true value.

Chronos, you measured the displacement of your genitalia in both a flaccid and turgid state and then you posted the results of those measurements on an internet message board for all to see.


That took balls, man.

Substantially more than my theoretical calculation of 3.5 fluid ounces, but not too far out of the ballpark (or Cleveland Indians souvenir cup). Still, it's somewhat less than half a pint.

My measuring device was only accurate to increments of 1 ounce. 6 ounces was the difference here, too. I used a narrower glass than the 24 oz cup, so there was no scrotum measured.

What, it's not like I just put all the equipment back into the cupboards. I'm going to wash everything before using it for ingestables, of course. And I didn't use either of my tea mugs, either: A souvenir cup would be lousy for hot beverages. Seriously, it's not like I [url="http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=198659[/url], or anything.

Kudos to The_Llama, by the way. The cornerstone of science is repeatability of experiments. And it's generally considered valid to estimate measurements to within one decimal place past the smallest marked increment, which is how I got my .1 ounce.

Of course not. Presumably, some of it went back into your pants.


It's threads like this that come to mind when people ask me incredulously, "You paid to be on that board?" Why yes, yes I did.

Okay, we know how much blood is in the penis; so how much semen is in it?
