The average adult male is about 60% water. When water gets cold it freezes and when water freezes it expands, right. So why do guys' dicks shrink when cold?
I know the water in the body does not freez, but would the water still expand some when cold?

lol good question.
It's because our genitals are mostly skin and flesh and kind of "external" from our bodies. When they get cold, they shrivel up to get closer to the body so they stay warm and healthy.
We're all mammals, so our bodies are always generating heat. This prevents us from getting cold when it's cold outside our bodies, but it also means we have to eat a lot more than a cold-blooded animal like a lizard. When it's cold outside, a lizard slows down, and she'll only be more active when it's warm outside.
Guy's dicks shriveling up when it's cold is the body's response to being cold, just like shivering and goosebumps are... that's the body's natural response to staying warm.0
