First of all, we have to define what small really means and what statistics apart from any personal impressions and taste actually say: The flaccid size is irrelevant, some men have a rather small penis growing to enormous size when erect, on the other hand there are men with a rather impressive flaccid penis that just erects itself when aroused and doesn’t grow much in girth or length. Flaccid and erect size don’t correlate.
Even in reputable studies, the statistical average varies, US median is about 5.5 inch according to the biggest study (1661 sexually active men) we could find by the well known Journal of Sexual Medicine. Most men have an erect size between 5 and 6 inch, so below 5 inch can be considered small.
Does penis size matter for women?
The question most men probably care for most. While many woman claim that penis size isn’t important for them and it’s all about the right technique and a loving partner treating them well, that’s only half the truth. In totally anonymous surveys, the number of women claiming that penis size is important for them, at least from a aesthetic viewpoint, is significantly higher than in face to face surveys. This fact doesn’t mean a smaller penis can’t satisfy a women, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a perfect sex life with a small penis, but the the harsh truth is: Size matters, at least for some women.
Good news: Too big isn’t good, if you are hung like a horse chances are high that intercourse isn’t possible in some positions since it hurts. While being very stretchable, the average vagina is only about 4.5 inch deep. So, average or a little below average can have it’s advantages as well.
Is penis size determined by genetics?
Definitely yes, if you have a big or small penis is mostly defined by your genes. Sons of men with a large penis often have a large penis. Sons of men with a small penis often have a smaller penis.
Can food or supplements help my penis grow?
Neither food nor any supplements influence penis growth or size. That’s the reason why all the so called penis pills offered on the internet simply don’t work at all, don’t believe all the fake promises. All those pills increase the blood flow only, which may cause a little harder erections, but the effect instantly stops once you stop taking those pills. So, a lot of wasted money for a minimal and non-permanent effect. It’s tempting, the sellers of those pills will show you doctors smiling from their websites, pseudo scientific studies from India they paid for, raving testimonials from famous pornstars but it’s just a huge scam scheme. It’s an extremely profitable business, selling cheap herbs for astronomical prices, combined with often shady long term recurring billing that’s hard to cancel.
Can surgery increase penis size?
Yes, it can, but surgery is always associated with risks, including anesthesia, wound healing deficits, pain from scars, worst case even a deformed penis or permanent erectile problems. It’s effective without a doubt, but the last resort in our opinion. For men with a real micropenis (smaller than 2.75 inch) it’s often the only solution, but only about 0.5% of all men worldwide suffer from this condition. If you are just a bit below average, the risk versus reward calculation is negative for surgical penis enlargement.
Apart from the risks, it’s the most expensive way for penile enhancement. According to About Health it ranges from $4000 up to $17000. If you are interested in surgical enhancement, we recommend reading the in-depth article on Medscape about possible surgical techniques and results.
This doesn’t mean penis surgery isn’t a viable solution for various medical indications like complete impotence (erectile dysfunction), but for enlagement only, there are less risky ways with good rewards as well.
Can training make my small penis bigger?
Penis exercises, often referred to as jelqing, were already used in ancient Egypt as a method for penis enlargement. While the multi billion dollar pills and expander industry that’s trying to sell you their overpriced herbs or pulling devices claims these methods don’t work well, they actually do. Reputable training programs like the “Penis Growth Guide” helped thousands of men to increase their penis size.
Do not expect miracles, but adding about 2 inches to your erect size after a few weeks of training isn’t an exception. Many men report this kind of result, some even up to 4 inches. Like all workouts, results won’t magically show after a few days, but with the right exercise plan, you’ll recognize a slow but steady growth.
The advantages: It’s safe, you won’t harm your health by trying. It’s inexpensive, most penis enlargement programs for a small penis cost about $50, one time investment, no hidden recurring charges. That’s less than half the money a one month supply of ineffective penis pills would cost you.
Are there any ways to make my penis look bigger?
Great news, even without a real increase in size, you can make your penis look bigger, in erect and flaccid state. The easiest one is to shave your public hair, if this extra inch hidden in the jungle is suddenly visible, it already makes you manhood look a bit more impressive. In case you have a few extra pounds, losing lower belly fat can optically enhance your penis, too.
Small penis size or girth and self confidence
Last but not least, the biggest problem of a small penis isn’t the penis itself, but guy attached to it. Every penis is different and unique, you can have a wonderful and sexually fulfilled life even if your size is below average. Always keep in mind that the majority of sexual stimulation a women feels during intercourse comes from her clit, not her vagina. Additionally, there is much more about being a man than the size of what you are carrying around between your legs.
