Penis Size: Is Your Penis SMALL Enough?

You read that right - a study discovered women actually prefer average sized penises than the 'ideal' seven inches.

BY THE EDITORS OF MEN'S HEALTH

Downsize your assumptions: Men think a 7-inch erection is ideal, but women actually prefer an inch less, according to research published in the journal Psychology of Men & Masculinity.

Not only did women not consider a larger-than-average penis desirable, but their ideal size matched that of the average package.

“The mythology of the oversize penis comes from men’s desires, not women’s. It’s a way men size each other up,” says Brandy Engler, Psy.D., an L.A. sex therapist.

In fact, a giant erection can be uncomfortable for some women, Engler says.

The study jibes with what we’ve reported all along: Ladies just don’t think size matters much.

It’s more about what you do with your equipment. Plus, they prefer to forge a strong psychological connection with you—which is something you actually can improve.

Check out the video below from Debby Herbenick, Ph.D., the Men’s Health Sex Professor, to learn more about the female perspective on your size.
