Does Penis Size Matter?


As the saying goes ‘It’s not the size
that counts, it’s how you use it’ – but does this long standing phrase ring true in
the hugely debated topic of penis size? Does your member actually make a difference in
attractiveness or ability to pleasure your partner? Interestingly, humans have the largest penis
of any primate, both in absolute size and relative to body proportion…so you can be
proud of that! Through our evolutionary history, females likely developed an interest and preference
for penis shape and size – much like how female peacocks have a preference for a male with
stunning feathers. As a result, they chose mates with larger penises, ultimately passing
on those genes. This is know as sexual selection. It also may have been an advantage for males,
as a longer penis is more efficient at removing the sperm of rival males during intercourse.
The longer your depth of thrust, the better semen displacement, ensuring your genes get
passed on. One particular study found that some women
experience more frequent vaginal orgasms with longer penises, suggesting that it may be
able to stimulate the entire length of the vagina and the cervix. However, it’s important
to note that women experience different types of orgasms; in fact, vaginal and clitoral
orgasms may be completely separate phenomena – they use different nerves, and even stimulate
different areas of the brain. Even the coveted “G-Spot”, another sexually sensitive area
in women, is located only ⅓ of the way into the vagina. Apart from this, many surveys
of women have found that they’re not nearly as concerned with size, as men might think,
and preferences vary. However, studies on homosexual men have shown that they regard
a larger penis as ideal. Another study in 2013 actually found that
flaccid penis size may also be a major factor in male attractiveness – even before sexual
contact. Which may seem odd considering we wear clothes nowadays; but for our ancestors,
the genitals would have been visible. In the study, women were asked to rank the attractiveness
of males based on computer generated images reflecting different body types and penis
sizes. From this, it was clear that not only were taller and more fit men much more desirable,
but flaccid penis size played a role in their perceived attractiveness too. The larger the
penis, the higher they were rated. But there was a limit – a flaccid penis larger than
about 7.6 cm and attractiveness began to diminish. It would seem a penis in proportion may be
most desirable. After all, over exaggerated traits – even those related to attractiveness
– can often be a sign of problems. And it turns out that the person attached
to the penis makes a difference too – with most all studies showing confidence, enjoyable
personality, and attraction being the best predictor of sexual satisfaction. Ultimately,
while size does seem to matter in some ways, bigger isn’t always better! Just be glad you don’t have a Bean Weevels

  1. 4, 5, 6 and 7 inches are just fine, anything above 8 hurts, too big can be uncomfortable and painful, and at time it can not even fit to a females anatomy

  2. The whole idea of vaginal vs clitoral orgasm has been rejected many many times. All orgasms are clitoral.

  3. They said your pp will grow when you go through puberty LIES the fluoride in the water must have gotten to the "experts" brains
