The penis plays an important role in sex, but its day job is liquid waste management – 800-2000 mL of urine leaves the body through the penis daily, while one ejaculate contains a scant 2-5 mL. More fascinating facts about semen: did you know the seminal vesicles – those rabbit ears atop the prostate – contribute the most liquid by volume to semen? Now ya know about stuff that comes out of your penis.
“Diuretic” is just fancy talk for “Gotta pee!” ☕️☕️☕️💦💦💦
Medically speaking, diuresis is a condition in which the kidneys filter excessive amounts of bodily fluids and increase the production of urine. A diuretic is a substance, like coffee or water pills, which stimulates this urine-producing function.
A medical condition called polyuria is the excessive and frequent passage of urine. It can be an indicator of diabetes mellitus, and occurs in other conditions such as: polycystic kidney disease, sickle cell disease, pyelonephritis (kidney infection), amyloidosis (deposits of a substance called amyloid in the kidneys), Sjogren Syndrome, and myeloma. Quite a bladderfull!
