Guys, be honest: do you wish you were bigger? Almost certainly, the answer is yes.
It has also been discovered by urologists that a lot of those who feel small under feel so because of their weight. “A lot of men who think that they have a small penis are overweight,” says Jennifer Berman, a urologist in Beverly Hills, United States of America and co-author of Secrets of the Sexually Satisfied Woman.
Losing weight will reveal more of that hidden shaft that’s buried beneath belly fat. It doesn’t actually increase your size, but it will look that way.
“I think there isn’t a guy in the world who hasn’t wished his penis were an inch or two longer,” says Michael O’Leary, professor of urologic surgery at Harvard Medical School and a urologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, United States of America.
However, after more than a century of generally dubious and sometimes lunatic penis enlargement attempts, there’s still not much you can do. Sure, there are lots and lots of supposed options out there -- penis pills, creams, brutal stretching exercises, horrific-looking devices, and penis surgery. Almost none of it works. The few approaches that can work often have modest benefits and serious side effects. How serious? In some cases, erectile dysfunction-serious.
“Trust me, if I knew of a way to safely and effectively increase penis size, I’d be a billionaire. But I don’t. Nobody does,” O’Leary said.
What is the average penis size?
The average penis size for a male varies on whether the penis is limp or erect. Certainly, an erect penis will be larger than one at its natural, soft state. The average penis size in a flaccid state is around 3.75 inches, while an aroused and erect penis is between six and seven inches.
According to a report, the largest recorded penis today is 9.5 inches when flaccid and 13.5 inches when erect and belongs to an actor from New York named Jonah Falcon. That size is very daunting to many women and likely to not cause pleasure during intercourse.
On the other end of the Jonah Falcon phenomenon is a micropenis, an unusually small penis that can even be rectified with growth hormones if treated very early in life. It may be difficult to engage in intercourse with a micropenis, but not an issue if a penis is just slightly below average at four or five inches. Many men with an average penis size feel the need to pursue penis enlargement products.
Myths about penis size
Historically, it has been assumed that the larger the penis, the stronger and more virulent a man is. A penis is often referred to as a male’s manhood. This has led many men to believe that the smaller their penis is, the less manly they are. Some people even believed a large penis is more apt to get a female pregnant. To such minds, the deeper it would go into the vagina, the better the chance for the sperm to reach their destination. Of course, this is not the absolute truth. Women who experienced shallow penetration have found themselves pregnant over the years.
There is also the myth that penis size correlates with the size of the actual man both in weight and height. Some believe the size of the foot predicts the size of the penis, and traditionally men with larger feet are taller, and in many minds tall equals stronger and more endowed.
Studies across the globe have disproven this theory in modern times, as diet and lifestyle can contribute to the size of a man and when these things changed, his penis size has remained the same.”
This age long belief that a lager penis means a man is stronger or more masculine has carried into today’s sexual society and media. Pornographic films often feature penises that are above average in size and women who seem to be receiving immense pleasure from this. This then evolves into common jokes about penis size and the desire of many males to have what they considered large penis, though they are on the average.
With all the emphasis placed on penis size, it’s no wonder that many men are finding reasons to feel small under, thus bringing themselves under intense pressure to undergo non-surgical penis enlargement methods.
But on a general and conclusive note, many people who are worried about their small size under, might have been those who have fallen victims of the many myths - both written and unwritten. They may not be as small as it looks, or they are made to feel and believe. Only a few of such may really have genuine concerns.
