Undoubtedly, one question that haunts every man at some point in his life is “Am I big enough for my woman?”. Preconceived notions about the direct relationship between penis size and performance, the 21st century portrayal of a man's penis in adult movies, ancient point of view where’s one manhood was denoted by the size of one's penis can be held responsible for a man to question the size of his penis.
However, multiple studies conducted in various parts of the world are proof of the fact that the penis size is one of the least influential factors that make a woman feel attracted towards a man. In fact, factors like warmth, sensitivity, a caring nature, sense of humor, etc are what women place at the forefront when it comes to choosing the perfect guy. This in no way generalizes the notion about penis size. Obviously, there are a certain set of women for who give importance to the penis size is but not all women. According to studies conducted on 26,347 women aged 18-65 by researchers at UCLA and Cal State LA, “84% women are happy and completely satisfied with their man’s penis size” which loosely translates to ‘Every 7 in 8 women think that their man is completely fine irrespective of their penis size.’
This verdict can also be contributed to the fact that a vast majority of women tend to give a massive preference to emotional stability as compared to physical stability. Women love a man who can adhere to their emotional needs and make them smile with their sense of humor.
As established by over a dozen studies and research projects, the average size of a man’s penis when erect is roughly between 5.5 and 6.2 inches long and 4.7 to 5.1 inches around.
Sex therapists and experts say that a bigger penis does not guarantee instant or more intense orgasms. On the contrary, a large penis can deter a woman’s orgasm by causing pain and discomfort. In fact, it is the set of skills that a man portrays in the bedroom that leaves a woman asking for more as there are multiple aspects of having sex like the duration of intercourse, foreplay, the choice of positions, etc.
Nicole Beland, former ‘Girl Next Door’ says that “Yes, we care about the size of a man’s penis but when it comes to sexual satisfaction, it’s pretty far down on our list of priorities.” She also emphasizes on the fact that women naturally tend to think of whether they are being pleasured or not instead of the size of the penis that is pleasuring them. She says, “Twenty minutes of erotic foreplay with a guy who has a penis the size of a Sharpie will be far hotter than 2 minutes of sloppy groping from a dude with a johnson the size of a flashlight.”
However, this doesn’t sway us away from the fact that if a ‘below average’ penis can be a hindrance when it comes to good sex. If the guy is very small, it sort of limits the things one can do in bed as many sex positions get stricken out because the penis keeps slipping out. In addition to that, it is really difficult for a woman to achieve an orgasm as the vagina does not get penetrated well.
It is difficult to conclude whether or not the size of the penis is important to a woman as it varies from woman to woman but let us conclude the article with the words of Mark Twain- “It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.”
