Whether you’ve had the benefit of comprehensive sex education classes at school, or if you’ve had to figure stuff out through trial and error, here’s some gay sex facts that are worth a quick refresher on.
Today, we’re asking…
How big should my penis be?
A 2015 study by King’s College London and the UK’s National Health Service looked at the penis length and girth of more than 15,000 men worldwide.
The average, professionally measured, turned out to be 5.1 inches (13 cm) when erect.
Only five percent of men were longer than 6.3 inches, while just 0.14 percent had what is known as a micro penis — defined as less than three inches when erect.
As for girth, the average flaccid penis was 3.6 inches (9 cm) in circumference, and 4.6 inches when erect.
How can I make my penis bigger?
You can spend a lot of money, time, and energy worried about what people think about your penis and trying to make it bigger.
Penis pumps. Penis pumps are a popular option. These work by drawing blood into the penis, making it swell. Pumping will make your penis look bigger, but the effect is only temporary. Use of pumps can damage the elastic tissue of your penis, making your erections less firm.
Erectile dysfunction medication. Pills such as Viagra or Cialis will most likely give you a firmer erection, so this might boost your confidence and help give the perception that your penis is larger.
Penis fillers. Hyaluronic acid can be injected into the soft tissue of the penis shaft to increase the girth of the penis. The increased girth generally lasts for around 18 months, but it is an expensive procedure. Fillers don’t add any length to the erect penis.
Extenders. A number of sex-toy manufacturers offer an extender product. Generally made of silicone, the extender is worn on the erect penis. These products create additional length and girth and also deliver additional pleasure for the wearer.
Shaving. It sounds simple, but if you trim the pubic hair around your cock and balls, your cock will be more visible and will appear larger.
