Young man is standing and thinking

When I was younger my size was right at 8 3/4 inches. But now that I am 45, I’m around 6 1/2 on a good day. Where did it go? My penis is shrinking! I have not read anything so far that gives me any answers to this question. Do you know???

    I feel for you, I really do. Based on your brief question, I can’t say for sure why your penis appears to have shrunk, but here are the leading possibilities.

    Have you gained weight since the days when you were younger and better hung? If you have, chances are you’ve added some of it in your belly and lower abdomen. Lower abdominal fat encroaches on the base of the penis, making the organ look smaller. It isn’t really, but the extra fat makes it appear that way. If you lose abdominal fat and are able to tighten your belt a few notches, chances are your penis will appear larger again.

    Do you have any risk factors for heart disease? Do you smoke, have high cholesterol, and/or high blood pressure? Do you exercise less than an hour a day? Do you eat meat and/or cheese daily? Do you eat fewer than five daily servings of fruits and vegetables? Do you consume more than two alcoholic drinks a day? Flaccid or erect, penis size depends on the amount of blood that circulates through the organ. All the risk factors for heart disease narrow the arteries, including the ones that carry blood through the penis. As blood flow through the organ diminishes, the penis loses some length and girth. I’ve always thought that public health authorities would have more success encouraging men to adopt a healthy lifestyle if they publicized the fact that smoking, poor diet, and lack of daily exercise hurt not only the heart but also penis size and sexual function.

    Fortunately, it’s never too late to embrace a healthy lifestyle. I urge you to read two articles in the Info Library, Penis Size and Getting in Shape for Great Sex.

    The point about the weight is true. There was one stat, from Men’s Health I believe, that said losing 35 lbs = getting 1 inch back. I can attest to this, as I lost 65 lbs and it made a huge difference (well, huge is relative)
