“Small Penis Syndrome” All Inside Your Head
With the pervasiveness of internet porn, a lot of men today have the mistaken impression that a seven inch penis is the norm. In fact, it is a behemoth. Male porn actors are carefully selected for their size. In fact, the entire process of making a pornographic film is unnatural, from start to finish. This is not a very good source for learning about human sexuality, or the male anatomy.
Small penis syndrome for the vast majority of men is psychological, not physical. One British study found that of 63% of men interviewed about their penis size claimed to be inadequate. But when physically examined, researchers determined that each was within the average range. Average is considered between 5.5 and 6.2 inches in length and 4.7 to 5.1 inches in girth. Meanwhile, a survey of women on the subject found the vast majority, 85%, were satisfied with their partner’s size.
What about women, do they prefer a larger size? Men’s Health sexpert Debby Herbenick, Ph.D. said that when it comes to the physical act of love, a larger penis may be prohibitive to a woman’s orgasm, rather than helping it to occur. A man who is too large may even need to accept shallower penetration. Otherwise, he may hit her cervix which can cause pain and bring the entire episode to a screeching halt. Women generally orgasm due to clitoral stimulation—usually through oral or digital contact, or through the use of a sex toy such as a vibrator.
The aforementioned British study found that instead of length, women prefer wider penises. This is because it better stimulates the area of the lower vagina during intercourse. Those with a thin penis can overcome it using certain positions to increase stimulation. One way is by using a circular motion when thrusting, or by taking part in certain positions during intercourse. When she is on top, place a pillow under your bottom. Try taking her from behind. When in missionary, hold up one of her legs for deeper penetration. For those men who still believe they do not measure up, steer clear of supplements or devices found online. These have been found to be dangerous. Instead, be sure to seek out a medical professional, such as a doctor or urologist, for a reliable evaluation.
