Penis size – is the characteristics, including its length and thickness in a calm state and in a state of erection. Penis size is important for conducting a normal sexual life, as well as for a man’s sense of his own worthiness. Size, as a rule, does not affect the function of urination and reproductive abilities. At the same time, many men tend to underestimate the size of their reproductive organ and often resort to operations to increase penis size without sufficient reason. Men who are concerned about penis size are advised by an andrologist, psychologist, sexologist.
In an erect state, penis size can normally be from 12 to 18 cm, with a thickness of 3-3.5 cm. In a calm state, the length of the penis is variable – from 7 to 10 cm . If in the erect state the penis length is less than 9.5 cm, then they talk about a small penis, with a penis length of less than 8 cm – about a micropenis. The average size of the penis varies among representatives of different races: the owners of the smallest penises are Asians; the largest are African Americans.
The first visible enlargement of the penis in boys is observed at the age of 12-13 years. The rapid growth of the penis continues mainly for 3 years, and by the end of puberty (17-18 years), the penis may increase, but not significantly. During andropause, there is a decrease in the penis, which is associated with a decrease in the number of collagen and elastin fibers, a change in the configuration of collagen molecules in tissues.
Variability of penis size
The average size of the penis allows you to lead a normal sex life. Thus, penis size is less than the norm, making the possibility of a full sexual life practically inaccessible, however, the sizes that are much higher than the norm make one doubt the possibility of a full sexual intercourse. According to encyclopedic data, the length of the largest penis is 30 cm, and its diameter reaches 15-18 cm.
At the same time, size at rest is also variable and depends on the degree of blood filling of the cavernous bodies, which are spongy tissue permeated by a dense network of blood vessels. The blood vessels of the cavernous bodies react to any physical influences in the same way as other vessels of the body. That is, when the ambient temperature decreases, they narrow, which means that penis size decreases due to a decrease in blood flow. Approximately the same result is observed with the release of adrenaline into the blood or with sudden stress. That is, the size of the erect penis and its size at rest are in no way interrelated.
Although there are medical data on the average size of the penis for men of different nationalities, each man forms for himself an idea of the “normal penis size”, often based on false facts, personal negative experience, which can cause depression.
How to measure the penis correctly
Measurements should be made at room temperature in conditions comfortable for men. To obtain reliable information about penis size in a state of erection, it should be measured along the back (along its dorsal surface) – from the pubis to the end of the head. This method allows you to estimate the functional length of the penis. If a man has excess body weight, or erectile dysfunction, then this can negatively affect the functional length of the penis, often significantly reducing it.
And, regardless of the measurement data, some men, even with the normal length of their penis, would like to increase it by a few centimeters. This is a subconscious desire for leadership. Since with a penis size above the average, a man’s self-esteem and self-confidence significantly increase, which directly affects public and personal life.
Normal penis size is an indicator of a man’s overall health, his reproductive and endocrine system. Since if there is a deficiency of testosterone and its derivatives during puberty, the growth of the external genitalia slows down or stops altogether. In adulthood, such men are often diagnosed with infertility due to the cessation of the production of germ cells and various psychological problems.
Most peoples had phallic cults. Thus, the images and sculptures of ancient Hindus were dominated by men with hypertrophied penises. On the island of Corsica there are phallic sculptures in the form of a penis of 20-25 cm, and most of the ancient Japanese fairy tales for adults are based on plots where excessively large penises predominate.
To visually increase penis size, in Europe during the Renaissance resorted to overhead codpieces. Penis size is a man’s pride and an opportunity to assert himself. But most psychological catastrophes, divorces and other negative consequences occur not because of a too small penis, but from ignorance and ignorance in the field of sexual relations.
Since interest in penis enlargement operations has increased recently, many scientists have tried to find a mathematically determined relationship between its size in an erect and calm state. However, too many reasons and circumstances that determine penis size in both states did not allow the use of mathematical calculations for prediction. The only observation was that the smaller penis size in a calm state, the more it increases in relation to the original size, but these data were not recognized as statistically reliable. It is possible to predict the maximum length of an erect penis only at the moment of maximum stretching.
That is, most men and some women attach importance to penis size not from the point of view of functionality, but from the point of view of masculinity and dominance.
Surgical penis enlargement
To date, surgical medicine is designed to solve both vital issues and issues to improve the quality of life of an individual. This happened after a change in the priorities of public morality towards humanization. Surgical andrology is designed to improve the quality of sexual life. To this end, numerous penile plastic surgery operations are successfully carried out.
Only 10% of penis enlargement operations are performed by andrologists according to indications, while the rest of the operations are performed in men who initially have a normal penis size. The reason is dissatisfaction with the quality of sexual life on your part or on the part of your partner. Although it has long been established that it is not the length of the penis that affects a woman’s orgasm during coitus, but the density of its compression by the vaginal muscles and the diameter of the penis. That is, in the absence of other indications and in the presence of a permanent partner, sufficient girth density can be achieved through a simpler operation to reduce the volume of the vagina.
Conversations with a psychologist help to realize that today a man’s masculinity consists not only of size, although phallic symbols have a long history and today continue to be propagandized by the media. The only proven fact of the effect of penis size on sexual arousal is visual erogenous stimulation. The same thing happens with women’s breast size, although in real life most men and women prefer partners with average penis or breast sizes. But, if surgical intervention is really able to improve many aspects of a person’s life, then in the absence of contraindications it is carried out.
