My penis measures 10 cm (about 4 inches) in erection. Is this normal? Will my size cause sexual problems with my wife? In addition, I have a small layer of fat on the pubis. I hope to have an operation to remove the fat. Are there any risks to my penis?
The typical erection measures 5 to 7 inches in length, so you’re a little smaller than average. BUT how are you measuring? The standard way is to stand and place the ruler on the top of the penis, measuring from the base at the pubic bone to the tip of the head. Now you say you are considering surgery to remove the fat pad in your lower abdomen. That fat encroaches on your penis. If you lose weight or remove the fat surgically, your penis should measure longer.
Does having a penis on the small side cause sex problems with women? That depends on the couple. Any size penis can give its owner great pleasure. As far as women are concerned, many enjoy feeling filled up during intercourse, but women’s main pleasure organ is not the vagina. It’s the clitoris, located outside the vagina and above it underneath the top junction of the vaginal lips. Only 25% of women are consistently orgasmic from intercourse. Most need direct clitoral stimulation (with a hand, tongue, or sex toy) to have orgasms. In other words, for most women, the penis has little to do with their orgasms, so it doesn’t really matter what size penis it is. On the other hand, some women care about men’s size. I suggest you discuss this with your wife.
Of course, men care a great deal about size. I suggest that you read my article on penis size. It explains how to make the most of what you’ve got safely. I also suggest you read two other articles: Orgasms During Intercourse – Improving Women’s Chances, and The Clitoris: New Insights.
