The other day, a patient in his early twenties came to see me because he believed his penis was too small. He told me he avoided sexual encounters with women for fear he would obviously be unsatisfying both visually and sexually, leaving him with further eroded self esteem. When I examined him, he had a perfectly average appearing penis. Despite my assurance that he was “normal”, I know he left the office believing he was too small.
Here are the facts:
1) The average penis is 3.5 inches flaccid and 5.1 inches erect.
2) 85% of women are satisfied with their partner’s penis.
3) 45% of men believe they have a small penis.
4) Without regular firm erections, penile size will shrink!
In brief, you are probably normal. If you’re concerned that you are substantially smaller than average, consult with a reconstructive urologist. Most importantly, if you are not capable of firm erections, there is virtually always a cure. Consult with us regarding innovative therapies such as the Priapus Shot or penile prosthesis surgery.
