Many men worry about penis size, particularly if their penis appears to become smaller over time. The reality is that flaccid penis size may have little or nothing to do with erect penis size and, of course, penis size has absolutely nothing to do with masculinity. But your penis may indeed shrink as you get older, usually for completely benign reasons.
Why Do Normal Penises Shrink With Age?
It is true – your penis may get smaller as you grow older. The penis has been known to shrink a little as time goes on as a result of decreased blood flow and testosterone. Some men also gain weight in the belly area as they grow older and, as a result, their penis can appear smaller without it being smaller. This is because excess belly fat can flop down and extend out over the base of the penis, making it appear shorter.
Research has also shown that long periods of impotence or celibacy can result in some loss of size to the genitals. This is something men are more likely to struggle with as they age, though many men grapple with erectile dysfunction even at younger ages.
How Can You Regain or Retain Penis Size?
Fortunately, most women do not care about size anyways and, in some cases, if the penis is especially large, it can cause discomfort in your sexual partner. So, while the loss in length can be distressing, especially if you were not expecting it, you should feel secure in the knowledge that there are so many ways to ensure a fulfilling sex life, and penis length does not even rank on that list. That said, however, there are some basic tips for regaining or retaining penis size:
- If you are overweight, lose weight. This will reduce the appearance of a shrinking penis.
- Exercise can help with penis size because it improves blood flow.
- Drinking plenty of water can make a difference to penis size.
- Avoid tight underwear and pants. When you constrict blood flow, you can reduce penis size.
