Top 10 Penis Myths

Fact or Fiction: The Truth about the Penis

 

Myths About Penis Size, Race, & The Average Penis Size

 

There are many myths circulating about the male penis and male sexuality. This list compiles and debunks the top 10 myths about the penis.

1.) Penis Size Matters.

This mentality seems to start at an early age where younger males compare themselves with either other men – perhaps an older sibling or their father – or with erotic images they saw in their teens. The fact is, many women prefer a man wider than longer and recent studies suggest that men are more concerned with penis size then women.

Fun Facts

The word “phallus” derived from Latin & Greek, which was usually used to describe the penis.

Did you know?

Based on Alfred C. Kinsey Sex Research it has been shown that only 17% of men have an erect penis larger than 7 inches, while the majority falls below 7 inches erect.

2.) Penis size varies according to race.

According to a recent 60 year international study, this just isn’t true. The penis size of a man is determined by several things, but race isn’t one of them.

3.) Older men tend to have a smaller penis.

There is no scientific data that suggests your penis size actually shrinks as you get older!

4.) Masturbation causes your penis to stop growing/get bigger.

Masturbation does not affect penis size, shape, or appearance. Masturbation is simply meant to promote healthy sexual functions and discover where individual pleasure spots are.

5.) A Tall man has a big penis; short man has a small penis.

Again, there is no scientific proof to substantiate this myth. There have been several studies conducted where shorter men had longer penises then taller men by about an inch. Penis size varies according to genetics, not height.

6.) A big penis is better for sex.

Not so! First of all, a woman’s vagina has the most sensitive nerve ending within the first four inches of her inner wall. It only takes four inches to stimulate that area. Secondly, while the vagina can stretch to accommodate a penis in excess of four inches, if it is too long it could poke her cervix during penetration and cause her a good deal of pain. A small penis is also better for anal sex, as well. The rectum is much tighter then the opening of a vagina, so a large organ can cause serious pain and injury during anal sex.

7.) My penis size denotes my masculinity

Many men feel that the bigger their penis is, the manlier they are. This is not the case. What makes a man are the principles and characteristics he upholds: strength of character, personal depth, determination. These are the things that matter. Being a leader, creative force, mentor to youth, and striving to get what you want out of life are the tools that determine the man. Incidentally, if you had to choose between these characteristics and a big penis, which would you choose? Which do you think a woman would find more attractive?

8.) The average penis size is over 6 inches long.

This depends on how you are looking at the penis. If looking at a flaccid penis, the average length is only 3-4 inches long. Each penis comes in a variety of shapes and sizes and looks completely different from person to person, especially when looked at in the non-erect state. Now, an erect penis has an average length of 4-8 inches, depending. But mostly penis size, even erect will stay within the 5-6 inch range.

9.) If I don’t use it, I’ll lose it.

Guy, your penis is not going to fall off if you don’t have sex or masturbate for a little while. And, it’s not going to shrink either. Sometimes there are just other things on your mind, and that’s okay.

10.) A woman who has given birth will no longer receive pleasure from a normal penis size

A woman’s vagina is kind of like elastic: it stretches and then, more or less, goes back into place. Obviously it will not be as tight as it used to be – you try squeezing something the size of a watermelon out of something the size of a lemon! – but, that doesn’t mean it is going to be extremely loose, either. There are muscle exercises that she can do to help tighten the muscles in her vagina as well, but none of these means that she cannot be stimulated by your penis. Remember, the first four inches are the most sensitive in the vagina. If you can penetrate that, you can begin to stimulate her.

Now that the top ten penis size myths have been debunked, I hope that you’ll be able to focus more on the man behind the penis than on the penis in front of the man.
