i was just wondering is it possible for a penis to grow after puberty. i mean im 20 now ,and going to be 21 in a few months, i seen this mentioned somehwere before, but not sure is it possible for me to add at least a little but more length or girth maybe. or maybe you guys heard of cases when guys penises were still growing in their early 20'? maybe there is some thing i can take, or some kind of excersises that i can do to maybe help this process, not like penis enlargement pills cuz i know those really dont work. let me just say im about 5" hard right now, and let me tell you its killing me. sometimes when i think about this, i think maybe i should kill myself and end this now, im not really suicidal or mentally ill, im perfectly sane i just feel like i dont really have anything to live for, i mean no matter how successfull i might be in life or how much i will archieve, i will alsways have a small penis, and will never be able to really satisfy a girl, !**@! is just !**@! up and i dont know what to do. if there is really nothing i can about my penis maybe i will just shoot myself, and the !**@! with everything else i really dont know, right now im hoping to find something that will help me with my size. anyway i think i wrote too much, really lookign forward to see what you people think.

males tend to finish puberty in their early twenties, so it is certainly possible to see growth.

Have you ever had a girlfriend or slept with a woman?

Because, you're going to find that you've worried about this for no reason when you do. Build some confidence with help, sex therapist, psychiatrist, self-help book or whatever, or just jump in and feel the fear. 5" is average and it's not something you've chosen, so you really shouldn't worry about it so much.

As for exercises and all that jazz, do some research. There are plenty of devices, pills and exercises, but do your research and gear it towards the dangers. Pumps and weights can do damage. Tension devices may cause problems as they cut off blood, but with proper usage it might not be a problem. Same with exercises. Look for some forums and ask around about problems people have faced. I know there are forums out there about the exercises.

dude you really shouldnt worry about the size of your penis. It not how big it is is, with time and experience you will learn how to please your partner. make sure you are aware of her needs as well as your own. in short it all about how you work it. and you really shouldnt be writting how you are going to kill yourself over this. some people think you are being for real

Heres the truth. Read cosmopolitan, read askmen.com and you will know that

WOMEN can't orgasm from intercourse. And that 4 - 5 inches is all they need.

your wrong... im a woman and i orgasm during intercourse, its men like you, oio, who do not take the time or put in enough effort when it comes to sex that will never experience their partner orgasming. Frankly, i pity you. Oh and Gredder, 5 inches is a normal length. It is nothing to be bashful about or upset about. Us women do not give a damn about your penis size, all that matters to us is that you know your facts about a womans body and are willing to satisfy us as well as yourself. In plus if you are completely unsatisfied with your length look up penis lenthening exercises right on the internet, please dont fall for the dumb penis pill thing, you just dont know what is put into those things. I hope i helped!! Smile

100 NOT true! I orgasm during sex all the time, but with my ex I never did and I thought it was because I "couldn't". A woman has to be properly stimulated to achieve orgasm, but it IS possible for most. And to OP, there are stretching/strength exercises that work really well, (i've seen it personally) after all your penis is a muscle right? Studies say the average penis is around 6 inches, so try to gain 1 inch (very doable) and don't feel weird. There are plenty of guys that feel just like you about their member, you're not alone, so no reason to feel suicidal. Good Luck

Well, if this is causing you think to suicidal thoughts every morning then you should definitely seek help. While you're there you can also build confidence about your penis size.

I'm gonna say this for the tenth time, because it seems like I need to. 5" is average and it's not a big deal. Women are not going to dump you or leave in the middle of sex, because of your penis.

Find a woman to date, to actually build a caring relationship with. When it comes time to have sex you'll see she's not going to laugh, she's not going to judge and she's not going to tell all of their friends. There is more to life than sex and penis size. There is definitely more to a relationship than sex and penis size. It's about friendship, love, having someone to talk to, be there when they need someone, etc. And sex is really just an extension of that, it's a bonding moment that strengthens everything else. It's not just some physical act separate from everything else where two people are vulnerable and trying to get physical pleasure, while judging the other's body. It's the same when a relationship is first starting, it's just that the act is strengthening those feelings as opposed to bonding them(though it continues to strengthen).

Your penis is average and it's not going to affect your ability to give a woman pleasure. Unless she's in the small percent of women that only wants a man that is 8" or bigger, she's not going to have a problem with you. Also, those women who only want 8" or bigger have a small pool to choose from as only 2% of men are that big.

Also, there are many women who do not achieve orgasm through sexual intercourse anyway. So a lot of your efforts at pleasing a woman will be done by your hand, mouth, and voice. For those women that can achieve orgasm through penetration, it is still mostly done through clitoral stimulation. Your penis is not what is touching the clitoris, it's your pubic area (or even a finger). For those women who can achieve orgasm through g-spot stimulation, you're still good to go. The g-spot can be reached by fingers, and I've never seen anyone with 5" fingers, so you'd be able to reach it. For the rest of the vagina, most of the sensitivity is in the first few inches and not much past 4". A vagina is usually only 3-4" deep and only expands when sexually aroused.

Finally, you're feeling really self-conscious about something that you have no control over and you probably feel like you're the only one. How do you think women feel? They're self-conscious about their breast size, their nipple color, their labia and color, if they smell, is their butt too big, "will he think I'm sexy," "will I turn him on," etc, etc. So you're not the only one that is self-conscious at that moment. People have a tendency to judge themselves, much more than they judge others, yet think others judge them as much. And usually, the more self-conscious you are, the less you judge others, because you don't feel confident enough to judge. What I'm trying to say is, that you'll find you won't be judged because she judges herself more, AND her self-consciousness will make her judge you even less. The same will go for you towards her. And what happens is you both make each other feel good and feel accepted and not judged and relaxed, and voila, you're both having a good time and like each other.

So what do you have here...

- An average penis
- A desire to be bigger
- A mind, mouth and hands capable of bringing a woman pleasure
- A penis fully capable of bringing a woman pleasure
- The ability to make a woman feel comfortable
- The ability to make a woman fall in love with you

Seems to me like you've got a pretty good list there, other than a desire to be bigger. However, that's not something you can control, and women know that. It's also a desire that does not need to be fulfilled to achieve the other stuff on the list.

You're probably seeing penis size in a few ways.

1. 5" is a small penis and it cannot pleasure a woman.

Well, that's just not true. 5" is not small, and it can pleasure a woman. The clitoris isn't stimulated by the penis directly, and 5" is more than enough to stimulate the g-spot and the rest of the sensitive area of the vagina.

2. A man is less of a man if he doesn't have a big penis.

Well, I'm not even sure what makes a man. A deep voice? Muscles? Athletic ability? A Y-chromosome? I don't know. Scientifically speaking, probably the Y-chromosome. In your mind, penis size probably means something, but why? Is it how other men view you? Well, first of all when do they even see your penis. And second of all, you're average, chances are they're average, so there's not much to judge.

Is it how women will see you? Well, we've already covered that you can satisfy a woman, so no reason to worry there. But what do you think women want? A 7" penis attached to a body that can get into various positions and make thrusting movements? Well, you'd be wrong. They want companionship, love, understanding, someone to laugh with, someone to cry on, etc. I don't see how your penis affects any of that. Yes, sex is part of that, but we've already covered you're good to go in that area.

3. Society is obsessed with large penises.

I'm not sure if that's true completely, but it doesn't really matter anyway. Are you living for you and the people you love and love you, or are you living for society? It probably partially stems from pornography where all men have big dicks. But porn isn't realistic. Men do not all have big dicks, and not all women are blonde, hot, have huge tits, and orgasm through sex. I also don't think that pizza delivery boys are the Casanovas of our time.

If society is enamored with large penis, it doesn't matter because it's not realistic and it's not something you can change. You can't change for societal ideals and you can't live for society. You have to live for you and what you want. I imagine you want a woman. Well, you can have that. We may make up society, but as individuals we do not express society. A woman doesn't want a big penis, just because society does.

It's all just a joke anyway. How can society be something that it's not? What's the penis size you always hear about when someone says what they have or what they want? 8 inches, right? Well, only 2% of men have that or bigger. So 2% of men is what determines the societal ideal? It's only joked about, because it's easy to make fun, because it's such self-conscious area for men. The same goes for women and breast size. If you want to make fun of someone you don't talk about something they love about themselves, it just doesn't make sense.

An interesting note about society and it's pressures is that in Roman times, a large penis was laughed at. So I suppose if you lived in Rome, had a large penis and there was the internet, you'd come on worried about your large penis, heh.


I really wrote more than I expected, but I hope you can take something from it. I think you should just dive in, feel the fear, and go for it. Find a woman to date, or even just a casual thing to get over your fear. A woman for a real relationship would be better though. If you can't do that, than maybe you should seek professional help. Someone who can allay your worries and give you confidence.

Good luck.

It really is all about how you use it. If it's too small, ask your partner, if she (or he...) cares about you, they'll let you know how you can still please them. You're born with what you've got, I've heard horror stories of people doing things to make them bigger, do NOT use anything, learn to use what you have to the fullest extent. I had a similar problem. Unerect my penis is TINY, and at first my girlfriend had a weird look on her face. Erect I'm 7'', so all is forgiven.

Porn spoiled the fun!
I just wanted to add that the average penis sizes are always over estimated worldwide because of the porn industry and bragging between friends Smile

The average and sufficient penis size is 5.5 inches. and even less than that doesn't mean it's a problem at all.

The average length of a vagina is around 4 inches and the most sensitive part is the outer third. (you never wondered why a finger works like magic although they keep a big fuzz about having a big penis?)

Porn movies pick men with big members .. but that's not the regular average size Very Happy and porn stars can go on for an hour with dozen of women because they can stop recording and continue the next day without you even noticing.

if you get the basic tools you can do magic if you know how and with who ... but if you have all the advanced "big" set of tools and don't know how to use it .. then u won't impress anyone.

Think of it like a trained navy with a pistol Vs a baby with a shotgun... which one you would like to be?

be confident.. that's the sexiest thing ever Smile

Man i have the same problem.. when i was 14 and 15 my penis was almost 7 and a half inches.. but i dont know why but over the years it seems like it has shrunk.. the last time i measured it it was 5 1/2 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide.. that dont seem big to me but man i have never gotten any complains.. oh and im 18 now.. i am real good at four play also.. gettin them g spots and always use your tongue.. get a tongue ring also... after i got one it seems like thats all girls want me to do to them.. hope this helps you man.. but dont kill yourself.. killing yourself is a b*tch way out of this world.. just find you a woman and build a relationship with her.. after she says shes falling in love with you and yall have sex, if she truly loves you then she will be ok with the size.. i got lucky one time with an older woman.. she has had 2 kids and i met her and we were drinkin and i guess it was good because she called me 3 or 4 times after that night wanting some more.. its all a stage of shyness.. just experience around and you will find out that its not about the size, ITS THE MOTION IN THE OCEAN!!! hope this helps

well i juss want to say im 16 with 8/3 inches
im african american and indian and i have been over 7 inches since i was 13-14 years old i was wondering will my penis still grow from the size it is now thats how i got to your question and i was reading all the anwsers to your question and i will tell u the truth im from vegas and 5 inches isnt that bad because if a woman chooses to have sexual intercourse with you it doesnt matter size as long as you can pleasure her in any way.But here is the truthful part i have to admit 8/3 inches is actualy big for my age
i have had women over 25 sprung off my penis and i have good exp with sex even if i didnt a woman would still be pleased because of my size And the only thing wrong with your size is if i have sex with the same woman you have sex with Even if she is your girlfriend she is always gonna come back to the 16 year old for the big penis.haha only being real.(And for the record i think if my penis was your http://ehealthforum.com/health/terms_of_us e.htmlsize i would have suicidle thoughts to i dont remember the last time since i was 5 inches maybe like 11 years old lol.

Hey be careful waht you wish for
I have a 9 inch penis and about 2.5 inch wide and im 22 when i was 18 it was about 8 so it should grow but it depends on your body but i say be careful what u wish for because like that guy who said that there is only 2% of men are bigger then 8 and he is right there are only a few percent of woman who want that i have actually had girls not sleep with me because it was to big and they thought it might hurt if you become to big you actually can be trended as more of a freak not something they crave. not to mention also creats difficulty between your partner and you it can hurt them during intercourse u almost always need lube, condoms cost more, and for most girls u can say goodbye to anal like they said you are average size so most girls expect it. ohh and if your friends know your really big they will make fun of you all the time and tell everyone we meet and guess how many girls ive gotten from them doing that 0 its not all that it cuts out to be trust me sh*t there only bit is usually porn lol all right man good luck

just a quick message...
all your comments have been really helpful for me - and, buddy, dont kill yourself over this. i was in a similar situation and can speak from experience. i have 5.5" and i was real worried about my girl friend (who ive been with for a while now) not getting much out of sex; but foreplay is a genius way to get your girl aroused - like most these guys have said - im 17 and i do hope my penis grows a lot more as it is mentally degrading sometimes when your mates are talking about their 8" penis' and theres you with your 5" wonder, so i know what it feels like, but in the end you have to make use of what you got - and me and my girl are fine so you should be cool as well. cheers.
