Is it normal that my 15 year old teen son's penis is too big?

My 15 year old son recently came up to me looking all serious, and he said that he was concerned about his penis. I thought he injured it or something so I started to get really worried, but it turns out he thinks his penis is too big.

I thought he was messing with me, so I made light about it and told him it's nothing to be sad about.

Then he showed it to me erect, and it really was huge - too big for his age (he's only 15). He measured it and it reached 10 inches long and 5 1/2 inches around. His height is 5'9. He said that the size of his penis causes him a great deal of inconvenience (like in wearing underwear, having to shower in his school with other guys, and it hurts when he wears jeans and he gets an erection). He really wants to try-out for the swimming team in his school, and he tried wearing those tight swim trunks that the entire team wears, and he says his penis is way to big to fit. And I know he'd definitely get a lot of stares from other people who'd see him in those small tight trunks.
I actually agree with my son's concerns, and from what I've seen his penis is just way too big. I have two older son's who are 17 and 18 years old, and they've told me their sizes are only about 7.5 inches long.

I'm his dad, and I dunno how to deal with this. Thinking of sending him to a doc to see if his hormones and stuff like that are ok.

I think it would be wise to have his chemicals checked; certainly seek the opinion of a person who has seen many penises.

His penis could continue developing until his mid 20's although that is unusual.

While an overly long penis features in both male and female fantasy I wouldn't envy any man who has one; as you say they are at best an inconvenience. Fortunately it isn't as yet more than an average girth.

I have heard that female hormones can cause some shrinkage of the male genitalia so the doctor won't be completely out of ideas but I am not sure what the side effects are likely to be.

Mother nature does sometimes randomly equip a man with an extra-large penis. I had a friend at school who had one. A work colleague was described to me as being "like a baby's arm with an orange in it's hand". Most of the ex-services guys I have known have a story about a guy who was excused wearing shorts. Those 1940's army shorts were virtually knee-length.
Some time ago on UK television there was an interview with a New Yorker who on a good day claimed he could raise thirteen inches. It might have been the presence of cameras but on that day it never achieved full erection and measured just over ten inches.
The professor of Masters and Johnson fame was reputed to be similarly endowed.
I never heard the dimensions were a particular disadvantage to them though this site contains a few negative comments from women about overly endowed boyfriends and I once had a woman friend whose boyfriend was extremely well-hung. She complained although sex was possible it was the nearest thing she could imagine to being impaled and was no fun at all.

I am wondering if your wife might have some useful or constructive comments to make. Certainly some reassurance, if she is able to give any, would be extremely valuable to your son at this stage. All those other fellows learned to get along with their over-sized wedding tackle and probably so must your son. The situation is potentially quite serious and the last thing he needs is for some unwise comments to cause him to develop a complex about it.

The situation needs to be carefully handled, if you will pardon the pun.

You say your other sons are only 7.5 inches; that is still a good way above average.

When you have seen the doctor and harvested the various comments I would be grateful to have some feedback if you can find the time and the inclination.

Good luck!

yes testosterone could well play part in the size of this boys large penis, I notice that although his two older brother's penises are not so large, but even at over 7" they are still above the average so they too have high testosterone, it runs in the family. At 15 he does have cause to be worried as probably his penis is not fully grown, it could still become larger and be 12" long and 6" in circumference by the time he is 17 or 18, not sure if a doctor could help, a reduction operation on a man's penis costs are prohibitive, perhaps he will have to live with what he has.

Can a penis be too big?
My son had a similar penis. When we was 15 it was 23 cm (9 inch). He had no problem at all about that. However, it was visible, when he had shorts or swimming pants. Many of his friends commented it, and he was very proud. Now he is married and a father. That proves that it worked well. His wife sometimes comments his tool, even when other people listen. He has three brothers and they have about 15-18 cm (6-7 1/2 inches).
You can tell your son that penises are different and probably many of his friends would like to have a bigger one. Tell him to be proud of his body.

I am facing something similar like this too. I just turned 14 and my penis is 9 1/2 inches measured. 6 inches soft. I'd also like to try out for my school's swimming team, but the tight swim trunks would definitely get people staring, but also when we shower in school my dick is much bigger than everyone else's which I enjoy. My father is 37 and his dick is 11 inches measured. We have a well-endowed family.

It is true that males in the same family IF the father has a large penis the son's will also be large, you say 'Yoloswag1234' at 14 your penis is 9 1/2 inches long erect and 6 inches soft, you also mention that your fathers penis is 11 inches long as well, in your case your penis at 15 erect will be 10 inches and probably by 16 the 11 inches your father has, by guess is that your penis will get larger than that by the time you are 17 or 18 and settle at about 13 or 14 inches erect and 9 inches soft by that age, yes beating your fathers by at least two inches, as you say you are in a well endowed family, good luck

Wow that is cute, you will need to buy swimming trunks that fit a far larger man, but its just the dick part that is large, you must be very proud on how large your penis is and the envy of all the other boys in your class in school. WIth a "banana" like that drooping and hanging down in the shower,yes you are so proud of what you have, my tip to you is to wear jogging pants, sweatpants at all time, that way the bulge will be very noticeable. Wear tight but comfortable swimming trunks when you are with the school's swimming team, not only will you have the largest bulge showing but I suspect you have the largest penis in the school, let alone your class or swimming team.

I come from a family with well endowed men. I used to wear a jockstrap under my underwear or bathing suit to keep things hidden and supported better. Your son can wear a strap under his speedo if it helps. He will learn to appreciate his size once his body grows uo. Problem is, biys clothes are cut shorter in the crotch then men's and he has a bigger dick than most men so that's why the jeans are too tight. Maybe try different brands to see if one is cut fuller.

I used to coach swimmers and I taught Phy Ed for 5th to 9th graders for many years. Lots of those young guys have full sized or huge genitals at those ages and some put most grown men to shame with huge sets of male equipment and in those sets looking extra big on such young guys.

Your son should be extra proud of his luck and never be ashamed, as most males really do envy him. He can wear a swim/jogger type of jock strap (Bike makes some)which has a narrower waist band than a normal jock strap and which hides well under a speedo swim brief. He can tuck his whopper penis down between his legs in his jock strap pouch or fold it off to the sides under his speedo. Most swim team young guys wear multiple speedos for modesty anyway and to help hide the details of their male anatomy when they climb out of the water and the speedos hug in extra tight until pulled looser as you'll see most swimmers do right after leaving the water. Wearing multiple layers of speedos also helps to hide and control all of the normal teenage erections that always come up unexpected during swim practice or swim meets.

There sure isn't anything wrong with your son at all. He is really blessed with what most men only wish they could have. There are more huge penises and testicles in locker rooms and on teen guys than you'd think. He'll be fine if he takes pride in his generously endowed male equipment and learns to enjoy his luck. There is no shame in being huge, showing more than others under his clothes, or filling out his jocks and speedos more than most guys ever can hope to do. This guy is lucky and he should be extra proud of his body.

My son is a swimmer, and has some issues with size/confidence.

He has high testosterone and developed really fast. One issue is frequent and long erections. A larger drag suit conceals most of it.

Before he hit puberty he used to lack a lot of confidence as we was less developed. Definitely can make some insecure. Now though he's caught up to his peers and is more confident. I'm not sure if there is a correlation with size and testosterone but he said he's the biggest on his team now and has no issues showering or changing

Interesting - - no response from dad in a year and a half. Let's hope they saw the doc, the doc reassured them both, and life has gotten happier now that they're no longer worried.

The downside to penis thickness is pain for the girl, but once in a committed relationship things gradually get easier as she accommodates to his size. If she is really having difficulties, her doc can provide her with a graduated set of expanders which will eventually let her accept his larger penis. So, "too thick" is only a temporary setback. And yes, you know how I know that. I honestly thought the answer would have to be surgical, and we were both relieved to discover this much more humane solution.

The downside to penis length is the danger to the girl of damage to the back wall of her vagina from excessively enthusiastic thrusting. Son will find that he hits bottom with almost all girls in certain positions and will learn when and how he needs to pull his punches, and which positions are most mutually gratifying for them both.

I am old enough to be the boy's great grandfather. At practice we all swam au naturel, and only wore our Speedos for the meets. Reluctantly. Times have changed. Once you're on a team, after the first couple of weeks the whole issue disappears as the guys get used to each other. Sure, there's ribbing, but only at first, and only for bonding, not shaming. The issues in my day were more about circumcision because the occasional uncut guy was so rare. So I do hope that the lack of response from the start of this thread means the situation has resolved happily.

See doc
Checking with a doctor is a good idea, but it's possible the boy may need to get a little counseling to help him adjust to his feelings about having a big penis and know how to handle them. Whatever the size, a guy needs to keep it healthy as well; regular use of a top drawer penis health crme can deliver amino acids and vitamins to help maintain its health.

Why I know the question is fake: No 15yo on the planet would just show his mom his erect penis. Period. Cheers!

If you read the last sentence it say "am his DAD" yes you are correct no 15 year old would show his MOM his erect penis but it was the boys father who saw it not his mother. The post might be a fake but this is not a porn site with a whole load of lies, just hope the post is true. There are some genuine boys who are worried that their penis is just too large for their age, others are very proud that they have a large penis. Although my penis when I was 14 was 7" long and 5" in circumference and the largest in the class I was quite proud of what I had, it never worried me but perhaps if it had been 9" long and 6" in circumference it might been a bit of a concern for me

I know how that kid feels, at 14 my penis was 8 1/2 inches long and 7 inches in diameter, but my real problem was my testicles. Each was the size of a small melon, and they really created a constant tugging sensation on my lower abdomen. I would wear sweatpants so my crotch wouldn't be squeezed to death like when I had jeans or tighter pants, but when I go an erection, a thick, tall, line would go straight down my leg to almost my knee, and it would tug at my pants and bend out several inches (sorry for such a vivid description of my part, but it is an image I may never get out of my head). It got even worse as I got older, my teammates in hockey would laugh and stare at my then 11 inch penis, and sometimes touch it. I went to my doctor, who was a female (she was also pretty hot) and she was stunned after looking at it and couldn't give me a very good solution to my problems. During my junior year of high school, I got my first girlfriend, and after a few months of dating we both did it for the first time, she cried and screamed throughout the experience because she couldn't handle the beast. My testicles drained themselves and shrunk from their emmense size of cantaloupes to pomegranates. She admired my penis and said that she loved it. So I became somewhat "cocky" (pardon the pun) and went to school in a pair of sweatpants with no underwear and walked around showing it off. People stared and stared, and I started freaking out about my rash decision. When the final bell rang, I sprinted down to the counselor's office and within a few weeks, was at another school. After my girlfriend and I graduated, I proposed and we got married and she got used to it and I learned how to hide it (wear a jock strap and multiple speedos if necessary). One of the things you must learn to do is accept it an be proud of your gift, but do not become a showboat and show it off to everyone, because you will never hear the end of it. I'm now 26, have a beautiful wife, 2 kids and I'm loving life with a 14 inch penis!

^Totally agree

Me and my two sons are really blessed to be so well endowed, just like yourself! I've taught my boys to embrace the pride of having such huge penises, they have no problem showing off, and they are much bigger than I was at their age. I was 7.5" long and 6.5" thick at 13, where my 13 yr son now is close to 8.75" long and 7+" thick.

My 14 yr old son is an unreal 10-10.5+" long by 8.25+" girth hard, his 7.5" flaccid penis always exposed in his shorts at school, with a rapidly growing reputation. I was close to 9" at 14 myself

Mind boggling that my boys will continue to grow much bigger than me at my current 12.5+" x 8.75+. They will be bigger than me at age 16-17 at tis rate. Not sure if they will be able to meet your monster at 14 inches lol!

Have to say though I'm loving life and am extremely proud that I have this gift and passed it down to my family as well Smile

I'm bisexual and every guy iv been with since I was 15 have been well endowed,I'm 7 inched and 4.5 girth I wish I was 9 or 10.inches. Even tho I'm average every dick I have held was much bigger and heavyer, so I started getting worried and verry into dick sizes to the point where I just grabbed some guys bulges in class over time I even ranked the biggest handful .

But it didn't stop there , people are growers or showers and I wanted to know who was what

it got abit silly with the fantasy 's

Iv been with guys who have big dick but don't realy grow much bigger

And other that are small and you think ffs but then bang grows like crazy and triples it size

Think I would wanna be a shower tho

Being a shower would be best for swimming
But I'm a grower and go even smaller when getting out the water I have to cover myself as my testicals make a bigger lump lol, and with an adult body it's not good

Once I got out the pool at same time as swimming club coz was curiuse if there pakege shrunk.
I must admit I clocked one of the lads comming out, and I couldn't take my eyes off for 10 sec, people most of noticed, but he was bigger than me hard. But there is gifted lads out ther(is it wronge to look, I noticed life gaurd steering too he must get it all the time lol lucky git,
I was in the shower area and all the swimm boys come in well my eyes where everywhere they was all bigger that memasivly but there smaller bodies would of helped with.
The boys couldn't of been older than 15 top

Y are younger lads so endowed now ther was only a thew in my class but now there everywhere , you can realy notice the hung lads as it bulges out and fills the shorts up

I have a similar issue as your son so I might have a bit of advice. I'm 17 years old, originally from Canada and my penis is about 8 inches flaccid and 12.5 inches erect. My height is also 5'9.

My large bulge makes wearing shorts and jogging pants extremely awkward but all in all I've gotten used to it and so will your son. When it comes to issues in public, everything should be fine.

When it comes to use and hygiene however, it gets a bit more annoying. Whipping out an floppy 8 inch penis to piss in the urinals isn't to convenient and will get a few stares. And sitting on toilets doesn't work either as my penis always touches the bottom of the toilet which is gross. Personally I even need to masturbate with 2 hands... It really is a bigger inconvenience than people might think so I understand your concern.

I actually had an experience at school this year which really opened my eyes to my situation. I had joined the soccer team for the first time this year and after our first game we all had to take a shower. As soon I got undressed my team mates had noticed my huge dangling penis and everyone was stunned and started asking questions. My flaccid penis was over 3x as long as some of my teammates so I kinda understood. From what they were telling me my flaccid penis was bigger than theirs erect,

Look all in all your son should be fine but best of luck. Things are pretty good for me so I imagine the same for him. Hoped I could help.
