Looking at those porn studs, you may feel that your "pissing device" is just a little larger than an earthworm.
And you may be tempted to study more attentively those spam messages on penis enlargement.
Do not be a pigeon: if breast implants present their risks, the surgery of penis enlargement is extremely dangerous, as the possibilities that your penis may be left insensitive and impotent are very high.
If it were so easy, we all would be porn stars (at least we could try to be). In fact, for most men, there is no reason to even think about it, but here comes masculine vanity.
It's the locker-room syndrome: is mine smaller!?
But the size of the flaccid penis varies greatly, being of about 3 inches (7.5 cm) - the average, but shifting from 1 to 4 inches (2.5 to 10 cm) for most men, both between individuals and for the same individual (depending on temperature, physical effort and other factors).
These are scientific data gathered by researchers from US, Germany, Nigeria, Iran and South Korea, and not those offered by net volunteers, which are greatly ballooned (again, male vanity).
Thus, the length of the flaccid penis is not a good indicator, as it varies for the same individual, but the length of the erect penis is much more uniform: 5 and 6 inches (12.5 cm to 15 cm) when erect, regardless of the size from which it may start out.
The erect penis is measured along the top part, from base to tip. An erect penis longer than 4 inches (10 cm) is large enough to stimulate erogenous portions of most muffs, but one larger than 8 inches (20 cm) can be disagreeable because it can touch the cervix. In fact, only 1 % of the men have penises equal to or larger than 7 inch (17.5 cm).
But pornography distorts the image of the men about their penises and most men seeking penis enlargement were found to be within the normal size.
Studies showed that men have the idea that a normal flaccid penis must be at least 5 inches (12.5 cm) due to porn media and few understand that those males are selected from a large pool and camera technique can make them look larger. In fact, those penises are more likely thicker than extremely large.
Thus, it is more of a psychological problem and few urologists operate a man whose erect penis is larger than 3 inches (7.5 cm). "Penile surgery has come a long way and has done a world of good for men who truly need it", said Dr. Karen Boyle, director of Reproductive Medicine and Surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.
This means men born with a congenital abnormality, who have suffered an injury, or who have severe erectile dysfunction and whose non-functional penis for copulation would outweigh any surgery risk. "The surgeries to perform elective penile enhancement that are advertised to enlarge a normal, functional penis do not work and... shouldn't be performed," Boyle said.
The most used technique is a fat transfer, but the result is a deformed penis, with lumps. The release of suspensory ligament, another operation aiming penis enlargement, can provoke infection, sensitivity loss and impotence.
Those annoying email ads offer three kinds of enhancement techniques: pills, pumps and exercises. Spam advertises herbal pill products, in fact just junk stuff aiming to extort the dupes. (similar bogus stuff exist for breast growth).
An obscure technique called jelqing, of unknown origin, can inflict nerve damage: you wipe a semi-erect penis following certain rules for about 30 minutes daily for months to enlarge the penile cavities that fill with blood. This makes no sense; but it damages your blood vessels, because you do it too hard or for too long, and this translates into impotence.
In fact, you know what?
Take this to satisfy your ego: a huge penis goes slower into erection...
So, you can imagine who will still do some hanky-panky at sixties...
