For centuries the sexual drive of the males of this species has been speculated over as a state of power and belonging. This makes it no surprise that men of today find themselves bombarded with images of what men should look like, how big the proper size of a penis is, and how important sexuality is in the world. The outcome of these mental attacks is a need to not only perform well in the bedroom but to have the equipment to do the job right as well. Fortunately, there are a number of methods to assist in the lengthening and thickening of your manhood if you should require it. Some of these methods involve natural supplements and herbs, while others require stretching techniques, and more evasive procedures such as surgery. Due to the highly publicized nature of these practices there are many myths that have surfaced; 4 of them are listed below.
If You’re Small You’ll Always Be Small
One of the most highly regarded myths referring to male enhancement is that if you’re born small you’ll always be small. Of course, your genetic disposition and physical size are determined by the time you reach your adult life, but this doesn’t mean that it’s one hundred percent impossible to change your length or girth through modern practices. Anthony Sciuto of ezinearticles.com explains:
The truth of the matter is that yes, your genetics will dictate your current size. However, it does not dictate that you have to stay that way forever. You can grow bigger.
Whether you use natural or medical methods to achieve this growth, it’s important to note that if you’re truly unhappy with your body and need to alter something, the modern world has made it possible to do so, at least to a certain extent. This doesn’t mean that all of the surgical practices related to this kind of procedure are safe and should be taken lightly, but the possibility is there, and it hasn’t been scientifically proven that some of the herbal methods of lengthening don’t work either.
Only A Pump Will Get Blood Flowing Correctly
Another myth related to male enhancement is in regards to the way that blood filling the penis enlarges it, and that the only way to properly do this is to use a pump. Of course, a pump will help to force blood into this region, but anything that makes the organ erect will do the same. In fact, pumps can be dangerous when not used correctly as they can cause nerve damage as they stretch skin and tissue. Other methods may include simple massage techniques or a practice known as “jelqing”, which forces the blood around in a flaccid or semi-erect penis. Erect jelqing is sometimes referred to as an advanced method of male enhancement, but the truth is that this kind of pressure applied to an erect penis could cause serious damage and adverse effects. It’s definitely a good idea to do proper research on whichever technique you decide to go with in the event that something goes wrong.
Average Penis Size Is Larger Than 7 Inches
Men around the world get self-conscious about the size of their manhood from time to time, and it’s really not hard to see why when rumors about average penis size make it seem as though it should range in longer lengths than are actually normal. Despite what is heard or seen in pornographic videos the average size of a penis generally doesn’t extend over 7 inches when erect. Of course, when it is not erect there is a possibility that the penis will be at a below average length, this doesn’t mean you’re abnormal. Ehealth101 suggests:
The average size of an erect penis is somewhere between 5 and 7 inches (13-18 centimeters). The size of flaccid penises varies on a greater extent.
When it comes to the size of your manhood there are two different categories to place yourself into; growers and showers. A grower is somebody who has a very different sized member when it is flaccid compared to when it is fully erect, where as a shower tends to remain at the same or a similar size whether their penis is engorged or not. This makes noting what is an average length or girth for a flaccid penis much more difficult, which is why you shouldn’t be disheartened if you have to wait for an erection to find any real length in your pants.
Women Want A Man With A Bigger Penis
Finally, the most bogus claim on the market in regards to male enhancement and the penis in general is that women prefer men with larger members. This couldn’t be more wrong, as most women focus entirely on different aspects of their partners bodies during sex. Unlike men who tend to focus on the most erotic zones of a woman’s body when making love, most women prefer to think about things like a strong upper body, lean torso, hands, eyes, and even lips. Live Science states:
Eighty-five percent of women reported being satisfied with their partner’s penis size, compared to only 55 percent for men.
These numbers show that it is much more important to a man that his member is large than to his female partner. In some cases this need for a larger member may be due to the thought that a woman would prefer greater length or girth, but an average sized penis and a bit of sexual knowledge will almost always overthrow a large penis without proper know how. Although size does matter for some things, women care more about you knowing what you’re doing and remembering to throw in the right amount of foreplay than they do how large your penis is. It’s also good to note that some women might be put off by an extraordinarily large member as it could prove painful or uncomfortable during intercourse. For this reason, average is by far the better choice, and as shown above, the average length during an erection is between 5 and 7 inches, so rest easy.
