Our society normally obsesses about two things. Women greatly prize the size and development of their breasts, and their male counterparts (heterosexual and homosexual) have great interest in the size of their penis, as it is sometimes seen as a symbol of power, stamina, masculinity, and social status.
There are two sizes of the penis that are important – these being the length of the penis and the girth (width or circumference) [how thick your penis is].
The penis develops from birth to age five – but this is very limited growth, and then it develops fully in the five years after the beginning of puberty. At puberty the average length is 6 cm / 2.4 inches.
Although clinical studies do not show or substantiate any difference in penis size in various ethnic groups, there is a general belief that men with African origins have larger penises while Asian men have smaller penises.
Measuring of the penis is a bit problematic, as the size of the penis will depend on various factors – such as state of sexual arousal, time of day, ambient temperature, frequency of sexual activity etc.
Compared to other primates, such as the gorilla, the human male penis is large when compared in relationship to the rest of the body. Flaccid penis size (when the penis is not aroused and erect) does not really have a correlation to the size of the erect penis
Most men have very little interest in the size of their flaccid penis – that is when it is totally relaxed and not sexually aroused, as “male verity” is normally linked to the size of an aroused penis with an erection.
The sexually aroused penis (erection) is measured by standing upright and pushing the penis down – so that it is parallel to the floor and it is then measured on the top of the penis - from the base of the penis to the tip.
In clinical trials the average aroused length is normally less, as men are inhibited and shy when medical staff take the measurement – as baseline self-measurements are higher than clinical measurements.
More important is the measurement of girth of the penis [the thickness of the penis] (see below) and this measurement is also taken on an erect penis, but is measured at three spots on the penis.
A measurement must be taken at the base of the penis, in the middle of the penis as well as just before the head of the penis (just before the glans – the shiny head part of the penis).
The “normal” male erect penis is between 12.9 to 15 cm – and for our empirical measuring clients that would translate to 5.1 to 5.9 inches.
If the erect male penis is less than 7 cm (2 inches) it is a called a “micropenis” and the occurrence is about 0.5% in male population and needs medical attention and intervention. Medical help can include injections of growth hormone and testosterone and/or surgical intervention.
A lot of men underestimate their own penis size, as they cannot view it at the right angle, and looking at other men’s penises at a urinal is not going to help, as they are all then (normally) flaccid.
The girth measurement – how thick your penis is – is measured in three places and the measurements then added together. The average girth of the penis is 12.63 cm (4.97 inches).
BUT remember – that girth measurement is made up by adding all three measuring spots together.
Although folklore dictates that men with large hands, feet or noses have large penises, there are conflicting results in studies, but since it is harmless folklore, we do not really see why the medical fraternity would spend large amounts of money to determine the correlation between these body parts and penis size.
Although there are cultural and religious aspects that will determine if a society circumcise men, it is interesting to note that circumcision does promote better genital health in men, as less attention is necessary for hygiene under the foreskin.
During ancient Greece and the Renaissance, an uncircumcised, small penis was desirable and a large circumcised penis was the thing comedy was made of, while the Romans and medieval Arabic people preferred larger penises.
Although most men are obsessed by the length of their penis, it is actually the girth (width) of the penis that woman look for during sex, as female sexual stimulation is linked more to the width of the penis and not the length of the penis.
Although the female vagina adapts to the size of her sexual partner, one study clearly showed that women find the width of the penis of more importance than penile length.
Gay men that engage in anal intercourse would normally prefer longer penises, as greater stimulation of the prostate occurs, but the girth of the penis will also play an important role.
Females have no problem discussing their bust cup size – but maybe that is because they use it every day to ensure comfortable bra fit, but I have never heard sober men discussing their erect penis length.
Yes – inebriated men like to brag about their sexual prowess, but it is never a discussion topic by sober men at the water cooler. The fact may be that men really have a fear that they will have smaller than average penises, and although there is no clinical basis in this, men might feel inferior if they have a small penis – but this could stem from puberty where boys are very proud to show off their sexual development – and especially their penis size.
It often happens that boys that only develop later – as it takes the penis 5 years after the onset of puberty to fully grow – to have a feeling of inadequacy.
One study did however clearly show that men always underestimate their penis size and men that had the impression that their penis was smaller than average, actually has average penis length.
One study shows the average flaccid penis length to be 8.9 cm / 3.5 inches but this length has no correlation to the size of the erect penis as a short flaccid penis can grow much larger (referred to as “growers”), while large flaccid penises do not grow much larger at all (referred to as “showers”).
The penis and scrotum can contract in temperatures or due to nervousness and stress.
Some cyclists using the incorrect cycle saddle and straining during training or contest have continuous shrinkage due to the prolonged pressure on the perineum and this can cause "gym balls" or "saddle balls" and continuous pressure could result in ED (erectile dysfunction).
Although a penile implant will increase the penis width, few men will opt for this operation unless they have a micropenis, as there are risks and unpleasant side effects.
Although we manufacture two male sexual stimulants, it must be seen in context. Both of these capsules are very effective but are formulated using two methodologies.
The Ageless Vuka Nkuzi
relies on a variety of six herbal extracts and zinc.
Our supplements have proven over a decade not only to be safe but very effective, and will ensure the best possible sexual arousal state and hardest erection.
This is achieved as the supplements will assist with proper and vital sexual arousal through various pathways, plus ensures that microcirculation and blood flow to the penis is optimal.
This will result in your optimal erection. NO supplement, gadget, penis exercise, pump, cream, lotion or ANY other device can add inches to your penis length – it is physiologically impossible – it’s like walking on water – impossible for mere mortals. Some of these gadgets and things offered via spam mail and clogging shelves at sex shops can actually have the opposite effect and could harm and hurt your penis.
If you take the “magical” blue pill Viagra – or one of its cousins – you must be aware that they do not have a 100% success rate for erectile dysfunction correction.
These drugs can also have various side effects including facial flushing, headache, stomach upset, bluish or blurred vision, loss of vision, loss of hearing etc.
