“Young men generally become preoccupied with the size of their genitals when they compare with others,” she says. “Historically, this was limited to changing rooms or the odd top-shelf magazine. But now there is this almost routine exposure to porn via smartphones. And that is creating a generation of men whose expectations of what they should look like are entirely unattainable.”
Penile size differs between men of different ethnic backgrounds and large studies of penis girth and length have been conducted by condom manufacturers. What many men perceive as a short penis actually falls into normal range size. Based on many published charts, scientific articles, and self reported web based surveys, 95 % of Caucasian men will fall into one of the following categories of size:
In an operation to increase penis length, the surgeon cuts the suspensory ligament, which attaches the penis to the pubic bone. The result is that the flaccid penis appears longer (but not much), because more of the upper part of the shaft is exposed outside the body. Skin from the abdomen is used to cover the new longer shaft of the penis. The risk involved in cutting the suspensory ligament is that its function, that of supporting an erection and angling it upwards, may be lost. The erect penis may be unstable or point downwards.
Panic is the anti-answer, so let’s end that now. Like any situation, this one demands some straight up facts, so let’s begin there. The first and most important fact is to forget what you’ve seen in photographs, in movies, or on the web. Based on a sample of 1,661 guys, the average self-reported erect penis length is 5.6 inches. Technically, according to the Mayo Clinic, a penis is not even considered small unless it measures less than three inches when erect.
“Hi Vacu-tech: I just wanted to take time to say THANK YOU. First for sending my order out to me so quickly. ( I couldn’t believe how fast you got my order to me.) And secondly to tell you how much I love these new Ellipitical Restriction rings of yours. They are very comfortable and damn fun to wear. I send you high praises at Vacu-tech and being a serious pumper wanted again to say thank you. By the way, Vacu-lube is now the only lube I use. “
As previously noted, gaining weight can result in the penis appearing shorter because the base becomes buried in fat. Liposuction may be used to reduce the pubic fat pad to make the penis appear larger . Studies show that suprapubic liposuction is very safe and successful with minor or no complications when it is performed meticulously, and long with improving associated esthetic concerns, it may help improve self-esteem as well .

If there is one unifying factor, it is a lack of confidence about what nature has provided. The average length of a British penis is, according to a 2016 King’s College London study, 5.16in erect and 3.67in flaccid. Only 0.14% of men have what one University of California study defined as a “micropenis” – that is, less than 2.5 inches when erect. Nonetheless, study after study shows dissatisfaction remains widespread among men.
Interestingly, studies suggest that men attribute more importance to penis size than their female partners. Generally, what is more, important to women is a partner who is tender and caring. Discovering how your partner likes to be touched and caressed tends to make for better sex. The idea that a woman’s priority during sex is to be penetrated by a giant penis isn’t that accurate. In fact, it’s not the inside of the vagina where most of the pleasurable sensations come from, it’s on the outside, at the clitoris, where the most sensitive parts of a woman’s body can be found. You don’t need a big penis (or any penis) to stimulate her there. During intercourse, a woman’s vagina adapts to her partner’s penis, deepening, widening and lubricating during sexual arousal, so in this sense, the size is not so important. Also, a smaller penis is often preferable for oral and anal sex.
