An erection is one of the most important parts of sexual intercourse. If the man is unable to obtain an erection that is rigid enough for penetration, then he would not be able to have sex with a partner. This, however, isn’t the only problem that men have when it comes to their penis and erectile function. Internet forums, social media networks and pornographic videos have all painted a “picture” that men generally have very large penises. In turn, this has caused a lot of men to become self-conscious about the size of their own penis – and often causes them to search for ways in which they can increase the size of their penis. This, however, is not a simple process. To increase the size of a penis, surgery is often needed. Fortunately, alternative options are available, such as implementing certain lifestyle habits and changes that can help a man achieve stronger and harder erections, which means their penis will most likely also appear bigger when the erection is fuller.
The Truth About Penis Size
Even though society has placed an expectation upon men to have a very large penis, the truth is, the average size of a man’s penis isn’t really as big as people think it is. Many studies have been performed to determine the “real” average penis size, and most of these studies have been reporting similar data when it comes to measuring the length and girth of a man’s penis, both in flaccid and erect states. For example, a study that was published on Wiley Online Library in 2015 had the following conclusions to make about the real average size of a penis:
- The average length of a penis when flaccid is approximately 3.61 inches
- The average girth of a penis when flaccid is approximately 3.66 inches.
- The average length of a penis when erect is approximately 5.16 inches.
- The average girth of a penis when erect is approximately 4.96 inches.
As you can see, these sizes are not as significant as the sizes that people often claim on internet forums. They also do not accurately relate to the penis size of male pornstars. Instead, they represent the average size that of the average man.
What Do Women Expect?
The primary reason why men are concerned about their penis size is because many claims have been made that women only desire the biggest penises. This, however, is not very accurate when you take a look at real results from surveys. One particular example of such a survey can be seenin the PLOS One library of medical reports and surveys. A total of 75 women participated in a study where the average expectations of women concerning the size of a penis were determined. All of these women were sexually active at the time of participation. The research group found that, on average, women prefer a penis with a length of about 6.4 inches and girth of about 5 inches when it comes to a one-time sexual experience. When women were asked about their desired penis size when in a long-term relationship, it seems like their expectations dropped somewhat, with a 6.3 inches average penis length and 4.8 inches average penis girth expectation. While this is still larger than the “real” average penis size, it is very close to such a size, which means a man with an average sized penis should be able to thoroughly pleasure a woman without having to worry about not having a “pornstarpenis”.
How To Improve Erection Strength and Size?
Since the difference in the average penis size and the average expectation of women is very close, men do not have to worry about undergoing invasive and potentially dangerous surgical options to get their penis medically enlarged. They also do not have to worry about using penis pumps or any other penis enlargement techniques that may hurt their penile tissue and cause permanent damage. The alternative to enlarging a penis is to utilize a method that can help to maximize the fullness and firmness of an erection. Thisis often done with techniques those are able to push more blood into the penis when the man has an erection. When more blood enters the penis during an erection, it becomes harder, stronger, fuller and often slightly larger than it did before these techniques were utilized.
Men’s Healthexplains that one of the best ways to increase the size and strength of an erection is to completely cut out any aspects in your life that may be contributing to a smaller erect size. Smoking in particular is one common contributing factor that cannot only lead to the development of erectile dysfunction, gut can also damage the penile tissue; thus leading to less rigid erections.
Other techniques that can also be utilized to increase the strength, size and fullness of an erection includes:
- A balanced diet that does not contain too many “heavy” foods that are harder to digest. Instead, focus on healthy foods that positively impact the blood circulatory system.
- Stay calm before and during sexual intercourse, and try not to let your mind wander. As soon as you start thinking about something irrelevant, then your erection may completely go away.
- Ask Men reports that the heat that gets expelled from a laptop can actually harm your sperm quality and erectile function. Instead of holding your laptop on your lap, you should rather place it on a table where the heat cannot reach your penis’s area. Limiting the time you spend on your laptop can also be of assistance.
- Some medication can contribute towards the development of symptoms that have been related to erectile dysfunction, such as the inability to achieve an erection that is firm enough for penetration. If you use any medication and find that your erection is not at its full strength, then consult a doctor for an alternative option that might not lead to the same side effects.
- Frequently participating in physical exercises, especially those that work the abdominal muscles, are also beneficial for increasing blood flow to the penis and improving the strength and fullness of an erection.
Men are often conscious about how big their penis is compared to those of pornstars, but this is an unrealistic comparison to make. Instead of seeking ways to enlarge the penis, it is often recommended to rather adapt to a lifestyle that would allow erections to be fuller, which means the penis is filled with a maximum amount of blood during an erection. In such a case, the erection will automatically be harder, stronger and also appear to be bigger than without these beneficial lifestyle adaptions.
