I thought it was cheese coming out of my penis because I drunk too much milk.

Ma parmigiano reggiano o grana padano?

:)

A Smegma is what they call a B-52 with a Full Payload in gay bars.

Isn’t that the name of that weird guy from Lord of the Rings?

Always searches for my precious I am, yes?

I disagree with that site. Smegma is not exuded by any gland. It is mainly sloughed-off skin debris. If you want to see a lot of it, just keep your skin over the glans and don’t scrub your penis for a few days.

All you really need to be hygienic is regular rinsing of the penis under a stream of clear water. The more you prod and rub the end of the penis during washing, the less smegma you’ll see.

I thought so as well

“Smegma (Greek smēgma, “soap”[1]) is a combination of exfoliated (shed) epithelial cells, transudated skin oils, and moisture. “

According to the English Wikipedia, Tyson glands are not found in subsequent studies, so perhaps they really don’t exist and smegma is formed by cell debris. It seems that Sovietic researchers discovered that in some studies and Joyce Wright published that in 1970 (!) in [i]Sexology[i]:

So the question is: why still in 2013 university researchers asserted that Tyson glands exist and they produce smegma?

ABSTRACT
ABSTRACT | REFERENCES
Tyson noted macroscopic lesions on the corona of the penis, interpreting them as the source of smegma. Later authors described the same lesions under such terms as papillomatosis corona penis. Though the connective tissue nature of the papillomatous protrusions was recognized, they did not equate the condition with that previously observed by Tyson.

Since Tyson had used the term “gland,” microscopists who found ectopic sebaceous glands on the glans and prepuce referred to them as Tyson’s glands, although they are not what Tyson described. Neither papillomatosis corona penis nor ectopic sebaceous glands appear to play a role in the formation of smegma; papillomatosis is not glandular and smegma is not a secretion. It is suggested that the term Tyson’s glands be replaced by the appropriate descriptive expressions: papillomatosis corona penis or ectopic sebaceous glands.

Thanks, Marinera!

Joking aside.

I do know what smegma is but had forgotten all about the Mike Tyson gland. Thanks for the reminder and fun science stuff.
