Does Size Really Matter?

does size matter


I think it’s fair to say that the topic of penis size is one that every man has pondered on some level at least a few times in their lives.

Men have attached a lot of self-esteem and self-worth to the size of their penis. Unfortunately, for some men, whether real or imagined, their penis size is the most painful and gut-wrenching issue in their lives.

It can be so painful and so embarrassing that some men won’t even enter into a relationship with a potential partner because they are mortified at the thought of what the bedroom reaction and experience is going to be like.

The other commonality seen among men who feel they have a small penis is that their poor self-esteem and self worth with this issue seems to bleed over and stain most of the other parts of their lives as well. They seem to have less confidence with other parts of life like business, etc.

Needless to say, a lot of men are suffering with this issue, but how much of this “issue” is really about perception?

What Is The Average Penis Size?

If you have seen any porn, you’d think the average penis size is about 8-10 inches. Well, it’s not!

Porn has done men no favors when it comes to setting expectations and perceptions on average penis size. They purposely find actors with much higher than average sized penises to sensationalize the whole porn experience.

That’s pretty much par for the course with porn. Everything about it is usually a sensationalized or hyperbolized presentation and misrepresentation of reality.

Guys, the reality is that the average penis size is about 5 inches or 13 centimeters. That’s the average. I’m not sure if most of the men suffering from self-image issues due to their penis size know what the average penis size really is.

My guess is that if more of these men knew this average, this could help knock out a big chunk of men who are needlessly worrying and suffering thinking they have an abnormally small penis when they really don’t in reality.

How Important Is Size To Women?

Many men think that penis size is the end all and be all to women.

It’s not hard to imagine why they would think this however. If you watch any movie or tv show, there are always jokes and innuendo made by women about how much more satisfied they are when the man’s penis big or huge.

Porn also has played a huge role in this perception. Women in porn are constantly praising the man for his huge penis and she can’t stop telling him how good it feels and how satisfied she feels.

Here’s the reality guys. In most of the latest survey and research data, over 85% of women are perfectly happy and satisfied with the size of their man’s penis, whereas over 50% of men are unhappy and feel self-conscious about their penis size.

This issue is more of a man’s psyche issue rather than a women’s satisfaction issue.

In most cases, bigger does not equal better. Many women report that a penis that is too big can actually be a detriment because it causes pain and discomfort, and they won’t open themselves up to other sexual experiences like anal sex because it’s just too painful.

Are there some women where a bigger penis just is preferred and feels better to them. Yes, that percentage of women is extremely low.

What To Do If You Feel Like You’re Coming Up Short?

First, get familiar with the facts. Know what the average penis size. Understand the fact that most women are perfectly fine with the size of man’s penis, and that it’s usually the man that has this perception issue.

Second, if you don’t like how small your penis looks, also know there are a few things you can do to make it look bigger. If you’re overweight, losing weight will absolutely add length to the appearance of your penis. They say for every 15 pounds you lose, you could see up to an inch in new appearance length. That extra fat that is hanging over is covering potential penis length.

Another thing you can do is trim and clean up your pubic hair around your penis. It’s shocking how much longer your penis looks when you’ve have trimmed the bushes around the tree so to speak!

Finally, if you’re just dead set on the fact that you have a smaller than average penis and nothing will make you happy until you can somehow add real tissue length to the size of your penis, you might want to check out a penis extender. A quality penis extender is a Class A Type 1 medical device that uses the concept of traction to add new penis tissue length (and girth) over time. It’s definitely not an overnight thing by any means. You have to commit to using a penis traction device for at least 3-6 months to get a couple of inches of new penis growth, so it takes commitment and dedication, but if this issue is really consuming you and preventing you from having meaningful relationships, then it’s definitely worth consideration.

Just know that there are no pills, creams, or sprays that are going to magically add new tissue to your penis and increase its length.  There are pills that can help with blood flow so you can get a full strong erection that will be the max of what your penis can do, but they won’t grow it beyond it’s physical max. Only a penis traction device or penis extension surgery can do that.
