18 Years Old Worried About the Length of My Penis its Only 2 1/2inches, when hard it’s 5 inches
Q. Hi, I’m 18 living healthy and ok, but lately I’ve been having this worries with my penis, at 18 the length of my penis when not hard is 2 1/2inches, when hard it’s 5 inches. it’s actually turning me into someone always looking to see other guys penis because I’d always want to compare with mine if I’m ok or not. I think about it every day. I don’t know if there’s something I can do about it to increase maybe some inches. I’ve never used any penis enlargement medicine or cream. the truth is the little size of my penis keeps me from sex and I’m seriously ashamed of it because I know it’s gonna make me feel sadder when I have sex and the girl later told me that I’m poor. Help me out, please. Thanks
A. Hi Peter, First of all, you should never feel ashamed about your body as much as it was created that way, oppositely you should always have a great confidence as a man, and this is a very important point because most of the male sexual problems we see in our clinics are actually due to confidence problems and misconception.
Scientifically, the average length of an erect penis of an adult is 5 inches, and 3.5 inches when flaccid.
Now there is an important thing to understand; the actual length of penis depends on 2 things, which are; 1- the length of the penile tissues, 2- the power of the elongation (erection).
You are below average when it comes to length of the penile tissues (2.5 inches, as you said), but you make it up for that with a strong erection to end up with 5 inches erected penis which is totally normal and healthy.
Your overthinking and overstressing yourself about how your partner may judge your performance is going to be the real problem.
Another public misconception is that women prefer or enjoy a larger penis, which is a totally misleading statement. Unlike men, the sexual process for women depends 20-30% only on the physical act, while the rest rely on the emotional aspect. The vagina lengths, unstimulated, range from 2.75 inches to about 3.25 inches. When a woman is aroused, it increased to 4.25 inches to 4.75 inches. So actually a penis larger than 5 inches could be uncomfortable if it’s not harmful to most women, because it may lead to vaginal trauma or even bleeding during the deep penetration.
I don’t recommend any marketing penis enlargement products in your case, all you need is to work on your confidence and learn more about sexual intimacy rather than misconceptions about size and performance.
I hope this helps.
