Penis Anxiety - August 25th 2011, 03:25 PM

Recently, the number of penis size related threads have been on the rise (no pun intended). It's time to set some things straight.
I wrote a similar thread to this two years ago and I think it may be time to re-iterate my points.

The average length of an erect penis on the average man is 5.5 inches. So penis sizes of 4-6.5 inches are completely normal. Also remember that when you look directly down at something, the view is distorted. This is called the foreshortening effect. Basically, your penis will look shorter and fatter than it really is. (A bit like my legs ) This also means that when you compare with other guys, yours will look smaller in comparison. So yours will look smaller to you and his will look smaller to him. It's nature's way of screwing with your self-esteem.

On average, the vaginal canal is 2-3 inches long and elongates to around 5-7 inches when aroused. This means that any penis size larger will hit the cervix which is quite a painful experience.

To the average teenaged girl, penises seem pretty scary if you've not had much experience. Big penises can be terrifying whether you're experienced or not.
So those of you who are sitting there thinking "I'm only 6 inches, my girlfriend will laugh at how tiny my penis is!" Stop! You're above average. This means that to the average girl, you're likely to be a bit intimidating. Any girl who laughs at you is being incredibly cruel as there is no need for it.
To be honest, a lot of girls will see you and go "How on earth is that thing going to fit in me???"
If you aspire to have a pornstar sized flagpole, don't. It will not make you popular with the ladies. I know that personally, if I had someone come at me with a 9 inch dick, I'd be running in the opposite direction as fast as I could. (Okay, I'm exaggerating a little.)

The other think people need to consider is girth. You don't need a coke-can sized dick to satisfy a woman. In fact, really wide penises can cause a lot of pain and damage. (Yeah, we stretch in childbirth but did we mention that it's excruciatingly painful?)

If you're worried about experience, don't. If you're considerate and try your best to please a girl, she will enjoy the experience. It's not just what you do with your penis. For women, a lot of the sexual experience comes from the mind. If a guy seduces you with words, he's cut out half the work. Then you have what a guy does with touch and I won't elaborate but, if you pay attention to your partner, it will pay off.

All in all, bigger =/= a better sexual experience. It's what you do with your instrument that counts.

For anyone who's interested, here's a link to my old post on the subject

We should have a Post your penis size thread.

I've seen one those threads before. If you read them, you'll see that it's extremely rare with men with horse dicks. And if you hear from one, there's usually a lot of drugs involved.

I understand the reasoning for why it might be interesting to have one -- it would decrease the insecurity of men with average sizes -- but it may very likely heighten the insecurity of those who have sizes smaller than what was already posted...I don't think it would be a very good idea.

Agreed, especially if you have mis-measurements that lead to people getting upset.

Isn't average flacid 3 or 4 inches? Seems like I've read that before.

The correlation between sizes changes a lot between flaccid and erect.
You could have someone who is 4 inches flaccid and 5 erect or someone who is 3 flaccid and 6 erect. It can really vary.

Love this post. Completely agree. I don't even know if my boyfriend has a big penis. All I know is that I was very intimidated the first time I saw it, I was like "...No way can that fit." Hahaha. So guys, don't worry. Girls really don't care.
And the post your size idea, I think it would be a bad idea. It would be the same if we had one for breasts, it can help us know what's normal, but it could also make us feel bad like "Well so in so has a bigger penis than me, he must be more of a man." Plus I'm not sure, but I believe it breaks a rule of TeenHelp about posting sizes, I know that includes clothes sizes which includes bras. So I'm guessing penis size would sort of fit in that.

I second everything stated here. Big scary penises =

The only thing that's cool about dating a guy with a large penis is telling your girlfriends about it because it sounds impressive. But, I think talking to other people about a mans' instrument is really wrong, so you don't really want to date that chick anyway. And, yes, in all reality, penis sizes don't differ all that much. Some are growers and some are show-ers.

To be honest the first time I saw my boyfriends junk I was very intimidated by it I still get little flashes of that now on the rare occasion so I don't think size is a big issue to be honest I think an absolutely massive penis would be far far worse than a below average one! Just thinking about it makes me want to say ouch! and to be honest guys, if a woman laughs at you because of your penis, she's a b*tch, plain and simple. Also it's not necessarily what you've got between your legs, it's more what you do and how into it you are :P they make a BIG difference :P

Oh no no no, that's not what I meant at all, sorry if I worried you! :S My boyfriend is that size, I meant I'd be worried by a freakishly large porn star size d*ck that's like...scarily and ridiculously huge
