Shout out to all men — how big is your “head”? The size of your penis may not be a physical attribute alone. Recent studies by University of Turin urologists labeled these qualms of penile size as “short penis syndrome.”
Many men feel that they are inadequate, but most of the time their size actually falls within the normal size range. Although the famous Kinsey Diaries defined the average male penis size to be 6 inches, the Daily News reports that the average penis size measures “between 3 and 4 inches (7.6 to 10.2 centimeters) when flaccid and between 5 and 7 inches (12.7 to 17.8) centimeters when erect.”
Mayo Clinic researchers also warn against spending money on pills, pumps, or procedures that could be costly and unsuccessful. Some of these may even damage or disfigure your penis. Many sources agree that while there really isn’t any surefire way to increase your penis length there are certain things you can do to help:
1. Trim down there. Shorter pubic hair won’t just make your penis look longer by revealing more – the Mayo Clinic suggests it can also increase sensitivity. So double win.2. Do some crunches. An abdomen that doesn’t flab over your genitalia can also make your member look smaller than it really is. Exercise to get rid of the excess weight.3. Talk it out. If you still swear that you’re not adequate, talk to a counselor. There are plenty of professionals ready to reassure you that you are the perfect size.
