When I am hard I am 5 1/2 inches (BTW what is the average girth?) but when I am soft I am about 1 x .5 inches like a stack of 10 quarters. It is so short that it sticks streight out instead of hanging. I know size doesn't matter but in a locker room or public shower I need to get my self almost hard to be able to not hide myself. I am fine where it counts but guy will never know that ( I hope) and it is so embarasing to have people my whole life commenting on how small I am. I have never seen a guy with a dick that doesn't hang. It's not a question but I am curious about what you guys have to say.
I think that everyone is different and the fact that it gets small when not aroused is normal. Just how small is different for everyone. I am sorry to say that there is nothing you can do to make it longer besides plastic surgery.
Also the average length of an erect penis is 5 1/2 inches to 6 inches.
dont' worry about it, like petery said, everyone is different. if u reach avg length when erect then it's fine. besides it's been shown by polls that majority of ladies don't put penis size high on their list of attributes they want in a guy. and if they do maybe u might want to not date them.
as for the guys in the locker room, why are they looking down there to begin with?
you sure none of them were pitching a tent?
well i wouldnt say dont worry about the girth, because its a plus, i was readin in a study that the upper 3/4 of a womans vagina they cannot feel, they can actually only feel 3 to5 inches of their vagina. im only 6 inches long and pretty pretty fat, and it seems like every chick i have had sex with love it. And they talk to there friends about. Ive hear chicks complin because people are to thin. But I owuldnt worry about it to much I guess, you are what you are..porn is no good so dont pay any attention
Yeah man, don't worry about it. A lot of guys have small penises when flaccid. Sure, it can weigh on your mind, but just try to forget about it. I've talked to my friends about it, and it seems pretty damn common.
Well mine is like 1 in when is soft and I am 7 in erect, I believe it has to do with the fat too, I still has a belly. I am trying to loose some weight and my let you know if it change. I hate gyms everybody is with their dicks hanging around and mine does not and I am not going to get a hard on in a locker room, that does not happen. Maybe all of them are gay and get aroused by other men and we are straight, think about it???
Hey everybody.. I'm a straight, 28 year old male. Just wanted to put this up because it made me aware that there are others who have the same problem and I feel a lot better and at ease since I ran into this thread... hope my 2 sense helps somebody in the world feel better too.
My earliest memories of dealing with the issue were around puberty in the group showers at camp. I admit I personally have the smallest flacid penis I have EVER seen. Its practically inverted into my body sometimes, most of the time its a little nub poking out with the balls snug close to my body. If I get a semi and I'm turned on that day and have not masterbated the night before, it can hang for some of the day and looks a little more normal.
Heres the kicker... I have a perfectly normal size penis, anywhere from 5.5- 6.5 depending on how turned on I get. I've gotten a lot of complements from women for my size and I know I'm not even in the realm of small. I actually love to show it off erect because eyes light up, I am very proud of it. I'm definitely no porn star but I like it, its great.
But every time I take a piss I have to to admit it, it really bothers me and I try to stretch it out daily.. which helps for a little bit but eventually it returns to its child like state.
This 'condition' if you want to call it that is not genetic.. I have seen my Dads and Brother's penis in the changing room at the same gym many times and when soft, they're huge in comparison, thicker shafts that hang and their balls are hanging lower off their bodies.. they look perfectly normal. I must look like I have the smallest penis to them which is as embarrassing as you can possibly get! So I rarely will change, shower or expose myself soft anywhere now days as you would imagine. I have never seen my families penis's erect (very strange if I did) but I assume theyre no bigger than me.
When I was a kid I was given so many comments I actually have accidently sexualized the humilation, which is the worst thing you can do for your ego and I'm trying to beat that at the moment.
But the reality is that I have a perfectly normal if not large adult erect penis.
The cause is unknown as far as I've researched. I'm thinking it must have something to do with early development and hormones is my best guess. I know I was a post baby (a week or two late) could be that and my Mother did have hormonal issues herself (3 miscarages).
If you're out there dealing with this too, we're probably in this for life, I'm certainly not going to take any strange pills or surgery... thats a big hell no!
Hey, we got it where it counts and we know what we got.
But it is a funny problem.. guess you have to deal with it in humor. Thank my lucky stars that I was given what I've been given but you wont catch me showing it off soft. It's funny, what an irony... you're given a beautiful thing for women... and men must feel very very sorry for you.
All good.... bigger things in my life to deal with than penis size
Every man worries about how big their package is. I'm a short skinny guy, but the guys who said size isn't important are right. I'm a short skinny guy, but hung like a horse (over 8.5 inches when I was 18, a bit under 8 now), and I can tell you honestly that I'm lousy in bed. I don't know if it's just because I'm so worried about doing the job right, or if it's just more difficult to keep a bigger thing inflated, or probably both. I'd give up a few inches to have my johnson behave better.
Funny thing is the woman i finally married has like the shallowest vagina in the world, and I can't fit the whole thing in, which also doesn't help in bed.
I think you're normal, but I understand it is embarrassing in the gym. My penis is normal sized when soft and hard, but I am tall so guys in the gym expect me to be longer when it's soft. That has been an issue in my life some tho i've learned to not worry about it much as i get older.
Is there a lifelike-looking extender that would fit your penis soft you can wear in the gym to fake the guys out? Unless they are gay and they stare, they will just get a glimpse and think you're fine. I saw some extenders on nawtythings.com but they looked like they mostly fit a hard penis.
You are a grower, not a shower. My last boyfriend had a VERY small flaccid penis. Often, it almost didn't show at all, it looked like a baby mushroom. We talked about it a number of times, and he felt the same way you do. I guess the woman side is having very small breasts and changing at a gym or such a place.
Even though his penis was very small flaccid, it was an average size when hard, about 5.5 inches. I actually liked how much it grew, and frankly the sex was fine.
My current boyfriend has the opposite problem. His flaccid penis is about 5 inches long, but when erect, he is still under 6 inches, so what's better?
When I first saw how long he was flaccid, I thought his penis wold be huge hard. I think this was more of a disapointment that it barley got bigger, than my ex who grew a lot.
The one thing that I find funny is, having a fairly large flaccid penis, he often put himself in a spot so that others notice it. I have seen him changing when he has friends over, and he doesn't close the door, etc. Why this is funny is all of his friends think (they talk about stuff when drunk) that he has a massive penis, when in fact, he is average. He lets them all believe this, but as I first said. He is simply a shower, you are a grower.
mine is small soft as well, I wouldn't shower in school because i would have been laughed at and called little penis boy. i measure 1 1/2" soft and skinny as a nickel. Mine is 4 1/2 hard and as thick as a quarter. I have the balls to strip and shower like a man.
dude like they all say dont worry I have been ciecumsized and at times when I'm soft the head suck into my shaft where its only about an inch long if that looks like a bump at the top of my ball that i think are twice the size they should be we are who we are
Agree with all. Im fresh off the boat 19 and im close to similar issue. Flaccid, sometimes only 2in in lengh but hard and fully turned on i've measured 7. I DONT even wear sweat pants or pajama pants around my roomates because I dont want them glancing down and seeing next to nothing. Like previous posts, we are all embarrased about something and we all have our secrets, but when it counts, Im good. and confident. Besides... my girlfriend and presumably most girls dont even care about the size flaccid let alone hard. If thats her main focus, she shouldnt be with you.
Actually, i share a very similar case.(1.5" flaccid, 5.7" erect) All my life i've been thinking that i have a serious problem and that am all alone. But you all have shown me in this tread that it is a fairly regular condition. And for that i thank you all as my life will only but improve now bcos i ve practically been hidding myself not just my penis all my life due to fear of embarrassment from guys and girls alike. All that will now be in the past. I also now believe that there are lots of other guys out there who share similar problems and i just wish and hope they would come here and see that they are not so different let alone abnormal as they are thinking and so get some relief and confidence.
I have a similar situation I thought no one else had this problem. I mean i dont know how big iam erect but soft it peaks a little. ive been loosing weight and it has helped me be bigger when erect but not soft. I have always been a little self conscious about my size. I was a virgin till a few months ago and my girlfriend who has had bigger told me its average. So it kinda helps me to know iam not alone in this situation, I thought i was a freak but i guess there are many others like me. Thanks guys youve helped me out alot.
I was sick of hearing women talk about it, even friends who are girls who don't know my size. I am telling you, girls care, I am not saying they should but they talk about it. I bought an extender, I hope it works I will be happy to get to around 7+ from (5-6)
