The Truth About Penis Size

How you use your penis matters more than its length.

The Truth About Penis Size

By: August McLaughlin

Does size matter? It's an age old question plenty of guys have. The answer is – perhaps surprisingly – not really. The vast majority of men have no problem bringing pleasure to both partners and themselves, regardless of measurement. Instead of focusing exclusively on size, up your overall health, skill set and thoughtfulness in the bedroom.

Flaccid or Firm

Penis size varies a lot when soft, according to the Kinsey Institute, averaging about 1 to 4 inches. Once hard though, the vast majority of guys measure 5 to 7 inches. The average diameter is about 1.25 to 1.6 inches. This size is more than sufficient for rocking your partner's world, while inviting your own pleasure too.

Does Size Matter?

Many sexologists agree that size doesn't matter from a pleasure standpoint – but guys tend to feel differently. If you compare yourself to mainstream porn, you may think your penis is on the small side, but that's likely not the truth. Countless advertisements for "enhancement" reinforce the misconception that you're lacking in size. If you're concerned that you might be too small, fear not. Your thoughtfulness and skill – how you use your penis – matter most.

Girth's Worth

Most nerves stimulated during sex are located near the entrance of the vagina and rear. Because of this, penis circumference can play a larger role in sensual pleasure than length.

Upping the Ante

While not necessary, you can take steps to enhance your penis size. Eat a heart-healthy diet to keep blood flowing during sex. Emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, and limit low-nutrient fare like soda and French fries. Sleeping well, exercising regularly and managing stress also promote strong sexual function. For enhanced stamina in the bedroom, try a ring. By keeping blood in your penis, rings help you stay firmer longer.
