A new study shows that men are better at recognizing parts that belong to cars more than ones that are a part of themselves, as they can recognize a dipstick better than their own… well… dipstick.

New research shows how most men are better learned about their car’s abilities and features than they do about their own sexual activity.

While most men can understand why a car has broken down, they fail to understand common causes of erectile dysfunction and symptoms of sexually transmitted infections, says research by the Lloydspharmacy Online Doctor.

While 90 percent of men said they could locate a car’s oil dipstick and 89 percent could point to the radiator, 6 percent could accurately identify the common causes of erectile dysfunction, with one-third wrongly blaming wearing skinny jeans, and 10 percent blaming too much masturbation.

Two out of five men could not correctly spot all the key symptoms of sexual infection, said the survey of 1,500 men.

When asked to locate key sex organs, such as the parts responsible for creating semen and the area connecting with the testicles (the vas deferens) – just 52 per cent answered correctly.

One in 12 thought they were found in your ear.

“We all know that two of the most important things for many men are their sex life and their car,” said Dr. Tom Brett, sexual health expert at Lloydspharmacy Online Doctor.

“If the car’s not performing properly, the British male is usually pretty confident he can get under the bonnet and solve the problem.

“But when it comes to the mechanics of their sex organs, men are clearly less likely to spot a potential problem.

“It’s often down to embarrassment and a ‘head in the sand’ attitude.”

Dr. Brett hopes to educate men on sexual health, as sexually transmitted infections were up two percent in 2011 from 2010, with 426,000 new infections.

“We want men to have a better understanding of sexual health problems so that they can reduce their risk and be able to identify an issue before it becomes more serious,” said Dr. Brett.

“Erectile Dysfunction affects thousands of men in the UK and this can be down to a number of different reasons; often the problem is psychological, perhaps arisen from a lack of confidence over one moment of failed performance, or it can be as a result of your health or lifestyle.

“And when it comes to STIs often people think that you need to have sex with lots of people to be at risk, however just one brief encounter with someone who has an STI may be enough.”
