Anxiety is everywhere, floating freely through the air, passing from person to person like a virus on the wings of a sneeze. While some of us feel nervous about our jobs, our health, or our families, others feel a very personal dread about our own bodies. Preoccupied by physical appearances, we can become distracted from what matters most in life, and turn instead to worrying about some highly specific body part. If, by chance, we zero in on the piece of ourselves most closely associated with intimacy — our genitals — we might shut down entirely.
Prostate Cancer – Prostate cancer itself and the various treatments for it can result in changes in sexual function. We already mentioned how treatments that lower testosterone can result in shrinkage, but shrinkage can also be caused by tissue damage that occurs during surgery for prostate cancer . Some studies on men conducted after radical prostatectomy found that penis size significantly decreased after this surgery . However, studies have found that vacuum erectile devices may prove helpful for penile rehabilitation after surgery and may help preserve penile size .
If you’re shorter than average, you still have options to please your partner and enjoy sex yourself. Riding high bringing the base of the penis against the clitoris while grinding against the pubic bone instead of thrusting can work well for you. This focuses on the rocking motion, and it won’t matter how long or short you are when you’re not thrusting.
He married, had children and learned to live with his unease. Then, four years ago, after separating from his wife, he asked a new partner how he measured up to her ex-husband. “It was a stupid question,” Alistair admits. “It’s pathetic that I cared at my age – but I did. To start with she told me it was fine, but I kept pushing and, eventually, she just told me: his was bigger.”
But many (most?) men feel very differently. They've compared themselves to the huge penises they've seen in porn and have concluded: Mine's much smaller. They've received countless junk emails for enlargement products. They've seen casual sex personal ads looking for men with huge ones. Men are convinced that size is key to women's pleasure and orgasm because a big one stretches the vagina more and penetrates deeper. And if you add up all the authoritative information men receive about size, it amounts to a thimbleful of water in a vast ocean of porn whose message is that hot sex is all about having a huge penis.
I tried stamina-rx. I bought it from the gas station and was super anxious so I thought I’d give it a test run before the big show. Well about 30 minutes later I started sweating my ass off, my face was flushed, my heart starting beating out of my chest, and I got the worst stomach ache ever. I was only 18 and couldn’t tell my mom I was dying because of dick pills, so I laid on the floor and accepted that this was how I was going to die.
Penile shrinkage can occur for many reasons, many of which we’ve discussed, such as prostate cancer and surgery, erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease, or perhaps even aging. In some cases, the use of PDE5 inhibitors, which are erectile dysfunction medications like Viagra, may be used to treat shrinkage. For example, in men dealing with shrinkage due to testosterone deprivation therapy, erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis may be used to manage shortening of the penis by increasing the blood flow to the tissue .
One of the things I took away from dating him is how insecure men can be about their penis size. So whenever I date anyone, I always tell them the very specific details in how I love their penis. I never lie – that would be too tough to maintain long-term – but I always find something. Huge girth. Love the way it curves. The hardest I’ve ever been with. I can barely fit it in my mouth. Whatever. I don’t understand the penis-insecurity but I am going to do my best to rid this world of penis insecurities, one cock at a time.
