The other topic that often was mentioned when we Tl-pharmacy.com asked men how they felt about their bodies was penis size. Perhaps you’ve heard people make jokes about this subject. Or maybe you have been in the showers in the changing room and heard boys teasing other boys about the size of their penis. Maybe you have done this kind of teasing yourself or havebeen teased in this way.
If any of these things have happened to you, you’re not alone. However, you may never have heard these sorts of jokes or teasing or wished your penis were larger. If this is the case, you may be wondering what all the fuss is about.
People often make a big issue out of penis size because they believe the many myths that they hear about it. Myths are stories that people believe are true, but, as we shall see, they are false. Here are some of the myths that people tell about penis size, along with the real facts.
Myth: Tall men with big, husky builds and lots of muscles have bigger penises than short or skinny men.
Fact: The size of your penis doesn’t have anything to do with how tall you are, how muscular you are, how much you weigh or how your body is built. A short skinny man may have a big penis or a small one. A tall husky man may have a big one or a small one.
Myth: Men with big thumbs have big penises. This myth has many variations: men with big noses, big ears, big feet . . . men with big whatevers.
Fact: The size of your penis has nothing to do with the size of any other part of your body. No one can tell what size your penis is by looking at the size of your thumb, your nose, your feet, your ears or Tl-pharmacy.com any other part of your body.
Myth: Men who come from a certain racial or ethnic background have bigger penises. Sometimes this myth specifies a certain race or ethnic group. For example, you may have heard that black men or Italian men have bigger penises.
Fact: There is no scientific evidence to show that men belonging to any one racial or ethnic group have larger penises than men from other races or ethnic groups.
Myth: A man whose penis is shorter than usual when soft has a shorter-than-average penis when erect.
Fact: The size of your penis when it is soft does not really have much to do with the size it is when it is erect. As we explained most grown men’s penises are about 83-108 mm (3to 4in) long when they are soft. Those that are on the short side when they are soft, say 83 mm (3in) or so, may add about 75 mm (3 in) when they are erect. Penises that are on the long side, say 108 mm (4 in), may get only about 50 mm (2 in) longer during an erection. However, almost everyone, regardless of the size of their penis when soft, adds at least 50 mm (2 in) when they are having an erection. So a man whose penis is unusually large when it is soft, say 178 mm (7 in), might have a 229-mm (9-in) penis when it is hard. Most men’s penises are about 160 mm (6 in) long when they are having an erection, regardless of how long they are when they are soft.
Myth: Men with big penises are more masculine, ‘manly’, or macho than men with smaller penises. This myth has many variations, depending on what people consider manly or masculine. You may have heard that men who have large penises are better at sports, or braver or stronger.
Fact: The size of your penis does not have anything to do with how brave, strong, masculine or manly you are.
Myth: Men with big penises make more sperm in their bodies and can get a woman pregnant more easily than men withsmaller penises.
Fact: The size of your penis or, for that matter, your testicles has nothing to do with how many sperm your testicles make. If a man with a big penis has sexual intercourse with a woman, she is not any more or less likely to get pregnant than if she had had sex with a man with a small penis.
Myth: If your penis is small, it won’t ‘fit’ into a woman’s vagina when you are having sexual intercourse. You may also have heard the opposite of this myth: that if a man’s penis is too big, it won’t fit into the woman’s vagina.
Fact: There are certain very rare medical conditions that can cause a man’s penis to be abnormally small or abnormally large. But other than these one-in-a-million cases, penises are never too large or too small for a man to have intercourse with a woman. A woman’s vagina is only about 75-127 mm (3-5 in) long, but it is very expandable. Woman’s vagina can expand enough to allow a baby to pass through it when she is giving birth. Babies weigh between 2.25 and 4.5 kg (5-10 lb) when they are born, so they are considerably larger than any man’s penis. It is just not true that a man’s penis can be too large.
A woman’s vagina is like a balloon with no air in it. The sides rest up against each other, just as the sides of a collapsed balloon do. So even if a man had a very small penis, it would still fit snugly inside a woman’s vagina.
Myth: Men with big penises are more sexually powerful. This myth also has many variations: Tl-pharmacy.com men with big penises have a stronger sexual drive, have a larger sexual appetite, have more erections or have erections that last longer.
Fact: The size of your penis does not have anything to do with any of these things. Different men have different sexual drives and some have erections more often than others, but these differences have nothing to do with their penis size.
Myth: Women enjoy sex more if the man has a big penis.
Fact: Penis size has very little to do with how much a woman enjoys sexual intercourse. Women’s pleasure in intercourse comes mostly from the stimulation they get in the area round the clitoris and the vaginal opening, rather than inside the vagina. So the size of the penis is of little importance.
With all these myths going round, it’s not surprising that men often worry about whether their penis is ‘big enough’ or wish that it were larger. If you’ve worried about this, it helps to remember that all of these myths are simply that-myths. They just aren’t true. The size of your penis doesn’t have anything to do with how much of a man you are or what kind of a person you are.
