In this post, we want to focus on a particular negative attribute of obesity, tell you how losing weight can be beneficial in this aspect and we would also like to offer you some helpful tips on how you can lose weight in order to experience this particular benefit of a healthier bodyweight. The topic we would like to discuss particularly relates to men and their penises – yes, if you are overweight or obese, then you have surely noticed your penis is growing “smaller”. Let’s discuss the connection between smaller penises and obesity, and look at what you can do to avoid this disappointing feature of excess body fat.
How Obesity Affects Your Body?
Since we want to motivate our readers to set out on a journey to lose weight in this post, we want to focus on all of the negative traits that obesity has for you. Thus, before we consider how obesity affects the size of a man’s penis, we would also like to discuss the other consequences that obesity has for the general wellbeing of a man’s health. Remember that excess weight does not only cause extra fat deposits in the genital region, but also throughout the entire body – this can affect numerous parts of the body that is needed for the normal function of organs and several systems that keeps the body working like it should.
Stanford Health Care explains that the most significant health impacts that obesity imposes on an affected individual includes a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease. In addition to cardiovascular disease, many people also find that they tend to suffer from high blood pressure levels when they are overweight or obese. Individuals with too much excess body fat are also more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who are at a healthy weight. In turn, type 2 diabetes can have numerous adverse effects on the wellbeing of the affected person. Advanced Urological Care explains that one significant impact of type 2 diabetes in men include symptoms of erectile dysfunction, which is caused by damage to nerves inside the penis and by a condition that is called atherosclerosis, which are two consequences of type 2 diabetes.
Many other health implications have also been associated with obesity. Gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, gout, respiratory problems, including asthma and sleep apnea, and even particular types of cancer can be a consequence of having too much excess body fat.
Men, Obesity And Penis Size
Now that we’ve discussed some of the most significant adverse health effects that obesity has on a person’s wellbeing, let’s focus solely on men and obesity – with the size of their penis at the center of our attention. While obesity has numerous health impacts on a man’s physiological wellbeing, it is also a commonly known fact that their psychological health can also suffer when they are obese. The most obvious psychological impact is the fact that the affected man may not feel confident due to a large tummy and “man breasts”. This is especially true when the man is in the presence of other men with better sculpted bodies. Now, this isn’t the only way in which obesity can affect a man’s physical appearance and, of course, his psychological health. This is exactly where the connection between obesity and a man’s penis size comes into play.
Society have created a false believe that the average penis size is quite large, with a significant number of men bragging about how large they are “down there” in social situations. The truth, however, is that the average size of an erect penis measures in at around four and 6.3 inches. This average measurement accounts for up to 90% of the global male population. Thus, the average size is not as large as you might have thought originally.
Now, when a man is overweight or obese, excess fat deposits accumulate in his genital region. When this happens, the visibility of the penis can greatly reduce. In fact, Man Versus Fat reports that each 30 to 50 pounds of weight that are considered “excess” causes the visibility of a man’s penis to reduce by as much as an inch. The more excess weight a man accumulates, the more his penis gets buried into excess fat deposits in his genital region. When a man becomes extremely obese, he can also suffer from a condition that is known as “buried penis”. In some reports, you may also read about a “mangina” – this is another term that is often used to describe this condition. A buried penis is a condition in which a man’s penis gets completely buried in the fat deposits that have accumulate in the area that surrounds his penis.
The more the penis gets buried, the smaller it seems. This can lead to a significant reduction in self-esteem, which can lead to numerous psychological issues. This isn’t the only problem that is associated with a buried penis caused by obesity. In some men, the nerve endings that are connected to their penis can be damaged due to the excess weight – this can cause the man to experience a reduced level of sensation during sexual stimulation. Stamina is also significantly reduced when a man becomes extremely obese. The blood circulatory system is also suffering due to the excess weight – this means blood will not circulate normally throughout the body. In turn, the poor blood circulation causes the man to experience problems with his erectile function – he may find that he is unable to achieve a rigid erection or that he is unable to maintain his erection while participating in sexual activities.
As you can see, obesity does not only affect the visible size of a man’s penis, but has a chain reaction, which can be thought of as a ripple effect. Obesity causes problems with numerous systems in the body. As a consequence, these adverse health effects then causes additional symptoms to develop in the affected man.
If you find that you are gaining weight and your penis is appearing smaller than usual, then it might be time to implement some lifestyle changes to help you “beat obesity” and achieve a healthier bodyweight.
