Does Penis Size Really Matter?

“It’s not the size of the boat, it’s the motion of the ocean.”

That’s just one of the most common responses to the question of whether or not penis size really does make a difference when it comes to sex. It seems, however, that many men just can’t believe that a bigger penis wouldn’t serve as a distinct advantage between the sheets.

does-size-matterAs it turns out, there have actually been a number of worldwide surveys over the past sixty years that have asked this question of both male and female participants and their responses to the question are very likely to surprise most men.

What The Studies Say

What the surveys that have looked into this subject matter have found on a consistent basis is that most men care about their penis size much more than women do. Researchers asked some 55,000 people to tell them how they felt about either their own penis size or that of their partner. In fact, 85% of the women asked about their partner’s penis size indicated that they were satisfied with what their men were working with, while only about 55% of the men surveyed said that they were happy with their size.

The True Average Size

A global study has determined that the average size of the human penis is actually a little smaller than researchers previously believed.

  • Length: Most men come in at somewhere between 5.5” and 6.1” when they are fully erect.
  • Girth: The majority of men’s dicks measured anywhere from 4.7” to 5.1” around the shaft during an erection.

When women are asked what aspect of their partner’s sexual skills really made a difference in their overall experience, overwhelmingly their answers had nothing to do with the length of a man’s penis.  The truth of the matter is that unless a penis is much smaller than average, which is less than 4” when erect, or very large, more than about 7.5”, most women wouldn’t be able to tell you if the penis in front of them is five inches or six. In addition to that, since the average vagina is only about 4” deep at the height of sexual excitement, anything more than that is actually kind of a waste.

There’s no question that a big, hard dick is more visually appealing than a smaller one, but it’s important to keep in mind that when you are looking at your own penis, you’re not seeing it in the same way that your partners do. You’re always at least a couple of feet away from it, while any woman that you’re with is likely seeing your dick from only a few inches away. That may not sound like much of a difference, but if you hold any 6” long object at arm’s length and then bring it closer, you’ll be able to see a noticeable difference in how big it appears.

Tips For Satisfying A Woman With You Have:

  • Anxiety and stress are two of the biggest boner-killers out there.
  • Score Some Confidence. Men with bigger dicks do score more often, but researchers say that appears to be more to do with self-assurance than their size.
  • Find Out What She Likes. It’s perfectly okay to ask your partner about what she likes during sex, since there are nearly as many individual preferences as there are women.

bigger-penisIf you want to make your penis look bigger without resorting to surgery or a penis stretcher, there are two ways to create the illusion that you’ve gained some length without actually doing so. The first is an easy porn-star trick that you can do in a matter of minutes. A little manscaping to reduce the length your pubes can make it look like your dick has grown, though the effect is usually not substantial. If you’re overweight however, dropping just a few pounds could have a big impact on big your dick appears. An added bonus is that this strategy will normally also help to improve a man’s overall sexual performance.

What the majority of women do seem to want from their partner is a dick that gets good and hard and that can stay that way for long enough to allow them to reach their own climax. It really won’t matter what your penis size is if you can’t get or hold an erection for more than a few minutes. That’s why it’s important to do what you can both mentally and physically to get an erection that is rigid enough for penetration and that lasts for as long as possible.
