Arousal: It just goes to show that you're more sexually aroused with intercourse than by yourself. Obviously you find your partner more attractive than you do yourself.

What disorders affect the penis?

Many: Many disorders affect the penis including cancer, skin lesions including herpes, and genital warts. Lack of blood supply to the penis can cause penile gangene (usually from a condition called atrial fibrillation or peripheral vascualr disease). Blockage and scarring of the urethra may make it difficult to urinate. Of course erectile dysfunction may occur requiring medical or surgical treatment.
