Penis size is an issue that affects the vast majority of men at some point during their lives. It is not uncommon for men to feel anxious or embarrassed about their penis size, especially if they feel that their penis is much smaller than the average penis. However, many men who have a penis size that is above average, would still like to gain a bigger penis size. The anxiety about penis size can lead to self doubt and can seriously damage a man’s self confidence as well as their sexual performance. However, there are a number of methods that can be used to increase penis length and girth.
Average penis size: How does the average man measure up?
Many men intentionally or unintentionally compare their own penis length to what they perceive as the average penis. The issue of what’s considered to be the average penis size has been subjected to a number of research studies. Often, a man can believe that his own penis is smaller than average, when in fact they have a bigger penis size than the average man.
The average penis length is between 5-6 inches when erect and between 3-4 inches when flaccid, whilst the average penis girth (circumference) is thought to be between 4-5 inches. Here's a graph representing the results of a survey on average penis length conducted by Lifestyle Condoms.
It is possible for a man with the penis length of less than 3” (when flaccid) to get an erection double his size, as a flaccid penis can grow up to 100% when erect. When considering penis enlargement, the erect penis size should be considered and not the flaccid penis length. Read on to find out more on how to measure your penis correctly.
Measuring it right
Many men measure their penis size incorrectly leading to feelings of anxiety and depression only to find out later that they have a bigger penis size that they thought. To measure the size of your penis correctly, you must:
- Measure from the point at the base of your erect penis against your pubic bone to the tip of your penis head. This will help you to measure the length correctly.
- To measure the girth / circumference correctly, you must measure the mid shaft around the penis when erect. Uncircumcised men should measure after retracting their foreskin
Can the penis become smaller?
There is a debate that excessive masturbation can cause the penis to shrink but nothing is proven yet. Apart from that exposing yourself to extreme cold, having a cold water bath or shower, abrasions, atherosclerosis, stress and anxiety can also lead to a temporary shrinking in penis size. Many men look for ways to increase penis length and girth as they get older, as the penis can actually appear smaller as men age.
Methods for getting a bigger penis size – How to increase penis length and girth?
Penis enlargement methods can be used for any man who would like to achieve a bigger penis size. Penis extender, pumps and penile surgeries have been proven to increase penis size over time. However, these methods are not the most discreet and convenient ways for men to achieve a bigger penis size, and can sometimes lead to discomfort. Many men prefer to use natural penis enlargement pills that use safe and effective ingredients to increase penis size without the risk of side effects. The most important thing to remember is that whatever your penis size, there are solutions available that can increase penis growth.
