Men worry about the size of their penis, fact.
The problem for many is they don’t know if they should be worried or not. They look in the mirror and they see what they see. But how can you tell if your penis is “normal”?
After all, what is normal? More to the point, is normal enough for you?
It’s not easy to compare your penis to the next one. In fact, its very difficult to see enough penises to get a proper understanding. You could ask your mates to see theirs, but an outright request might be met with ridicule and then maybe the cat is out of the bag, and you wouldn’t want that now would you?
Then there is the world of porn. So widely accessible online, and also for free. But the guys on the porn sites doing what they like best, may not be a realistic comparison. After all, have you ever seen a male porn star with a small penis? He may be out there somewhere, but the chances are that most are going to be very well endowed to do the job that they do.
Another option is to just google it or read up on it. There are lots of statistics around about penis size across the world. It doesn’t take much research to learn that not all men are born with the same, quite far from it.
It somewhat depends on your nationality and you can hardly blame yourself for that. There are quite significant variations between some countries. We won’t mention them here it might spoil the fun of the search.
However, it might make you feel (slightly) better to know that your penis is bigger than the gorilla. Yes the gorilla. That massive beast. That massive sign of masculinity.
The poor fellow’s penis is very small indeed. His appendage is only around 2 to 4 centimetres (soft that is, not erect).
Not only is his penis very small but his testicles are half the size of ours.
Now this might come as a bit of a shock to you and me. How can it be that such a powerful animal can have crown jewels smaller, much smaller, than your average human guy?
One theory is that the gorilla doesn’t have to try hard to seduce his mate. In fact, without putting too fine a point on it, he simply takes his partner by force.
Humans have to work much harder than that. We have to earn our sexual attractiveness to win over our mate. It is true that this is the principle reason why the human penis is the size that it is.
Before we started to wear clothes, thousands of years ago, the male penis was on show all of the time. Back then a large penis and a strong erection were seen as a major advantage in gaining a mate. They were considered by females to be attractive and advantageous. Hence, evolution has been kind to humans when it comes to penis size.
Now, this will come as cold comfort if you feel that your penis does not measure up. Unlike our animal friends of course, we do have options. Penis enlargement surgery and penis enlargement injections are available to give guys that much needed boost where it matters. Penis enlargement has actually been around for thousands of years, but that’s another story. For now, take comfort that you are not a gorilla.
