Worried about your penis size? Read this!

Written by Editorial Team |Updated : March 13, 2015 5:13 PM IST

There isn't a day when we don't receive a query about penis size. Men are always, always worried it is smaller than it ought to be. In their opinion, that is the only thing that matters when it comes to sex. If they did ask their women, they would be surprised by the answers they get. Anyway, here are some quick facts every man should know about the penis:

Average erect penis 5.1 to 5.9 inches

Erect is the important word here. The size of the penis in the flaccid state is immaterial. The only people who really need to worry are those suffering from the micro-penis condition (a condition where the penis measures less than 3 inches when erect).

No correlation between ethnicity and penis

A man's height/fingers/race does not have any bearing on the penis size. Yes, we have been led to believe that certain ethnicities have bigger penises than others but the thing is there is absolutely no data to back that up. One reason why we are led to believe that Caucasians, African-Americans or Hispanics have bigger penises than Asians is because of porn. Most of our sex myths derive from porn and there is no organised porn industry in Asia so we end up watching Americans or Europeans and get the distinct impression that they are bigger.

Small penis size or Erectile dysfunction?

Most men who complain of a small penis size actually are suffering from erectile dysfunction. The inability to sustain an erection during sex is the problem not the size of the penis.

It's all about perception

It has been observed that people perceive their organs to be much smaller than they actually are when they see it from the top (due to 'foreshadowing').

Abdominal fat is another cause which makes the penis smaller than it actually is. Just work on getting a fab ab and see how it adds inches to your penis.

Size doesn't matter to women

For women, sex isn't only about the organ. In contrast, some women actually claim to be scared of a 'lengthy' penis. If we really are bothered about logistics, most women claim to be more impressed by girth than length as that's the part that makes contact. In fact, even when aroused, a woman's vagina measures only to about 10 cm (4 inches). So logically speaking, even a man with a 'small' penis can fill in a woman's vagina completely. And there's a lot more to great sex than just penetration; mutual masturbation, outercourse, oral sex etc. Here's what women want during sex.

There are no miracle cures

No pills, creams, exercises, suction devices or medicines can increase the size of your penis. Nothing but surgery can help and that too only in cases of the micro-penis condition (less than 3 inches when erect). Even surgeries that claim to increase penis size don't actually do so per se. By cutting through the ligament that supports the organ, they only make it dangle more so that it looks longer when not erect. On erection, it may not make any difference at all.
