Here’s how to learn to love your small penis
Do good things really come in small packages? You’d be surprised.
Most men worry about the size of their penis at one point or another, because we’re constantly bombarded with varying ideas of what a ‘normal’ penis size is – and because larger penises are glamourised.
If you are packing something you perceive to be ‘small’, the honest truth is you’re probably way more ‘average’ than you think, and there’s a number of reasons why.
The first is quite simple: because we look at our manhood from above, it gives the impression that our penis is actually shorter than it really is.
What’s more, nobody can really tell us what a ‘normal’ sized penis is, because various scientific studies show different penis length averages and don’t tend to classify actual penis length as ‘small’ or ‘large’.
But despite the lack of guidance when it comes to penis size, men who sit on the lower end of the penis length spectrum can feel embarrassed and self-conscious about how they size up compared to others.
Not only does this impact on them when they get changed in a changing room, it can severely affect their sexual relationships, especially around anxiety when having sex with a new partner for the first time.
Read on for all the help and support you need if you face issues with anxiety or fear surrounding your own manhood, and some more of the facts, too.
Small penis syndrome
Small penis syndrome is a psychological condition whereby a man is convinced that he has a small penis.
He might not physically have a small penis, but that doesn’t mean this psychological condition can’t have an impact for him physically.
Men who think they have a small penis might be less likely to visit sexual health clinics for check-ups, for example.
