What can you find information about on this website?

Penis size

We have lots of information about penis size! Whether you want to find out what is small, average and large, or discover where you fit on the size scale, we can tell you. If you want to know how penis size varies between races, look no further!

We conducted our own penis size survey and we now have the definitive size information for you. It makes interesting reading - for one thing, average penis size is smaller than most people think.

Penis size in pictures!

penis size

If you're more interested in penis pictures, visit Images Of Size, a site devoted to penis pictures - it's a huge website with over 3000 photos of every size and shape of penis you could ever imagine. Until you've seen it, you'll never believe that the penis can possibly come in so many shapes and sizes!

Penile anatomy

This is a section of the site which describes the appearance and structure of the normal penis. There's a great deal of information here on penile anatomy and the foreskin, together with information on circumcision.

If you want to know more about the pros and cons of circumcision, this is the place to visit. In addition, we have all the information you could ever want about penile anatomy, shape and circumcision.

Male sexuality, arousal and orgasm

Here we tell you everything you'll ever need to know about how the essence of being a man!

From the first twitch of your penis between your legs, through your increasingly hard erection as you get more excited, to the powerful and thrilling moments of ejaculation and orgasm, all the stages of a man's sexual arousal is described in detail.

Read this, and you'll be able to explain to your girl once and for all why you get an erection just looking at her, and why you seem to be horny all the time. Well, that's what she says, anyway.

We know it just isn't true that men think about sex ten times an hour. That's simply nonsense. It's much more often than that.

If you have any problems enjoying sex due to obesity, check out The Venus Factor, which seems like a revolutionary approach to how to lose weight. The Venus Factor is based on the science of leptin, the body's own natural fat-burning hormone.

True intimacy

Is all about connection, romance, love and affection. I'd call it compassionate kindness, but you might have your own way of describing it. It's all about connecting with a woman and devoting your mind, body and heart to pleasuring her in bed (and out of bed, for that matter!) If you want more information on making a woman like the way you are pleasing her, we recommend you visit our sister site which was written by the same team as prepared this one.


If you haven't got a partner - or, come to think of it, even if you have - you probably enjoy masturbating.

That's how you first learned about your body and how much pleasure your penis can give you. And since it's one of the nicest ways of feeling good, masturbation comes highly recommended.

Lovemaking techniques and positions

If you do have a partner, you're likely to be looking for information about how to make your love life more enjoyable. And we have several pages of tips to make you a great lover. If you want to know more about the coital alignment technique, try his excellent website on coital techniques and variations of the missionary position.

There's also information on the delights of fellatio and cunnilingus, the possible pleasures of anal intercourse (and which positions are best for it), the missionary position, rear entry, side by side and other positions - and much more besides.

If you'd like to know how to keep a committed, monogamous long term love affair alive, check out this information.

Overcome Delayed Ejaculation!

Delayed ejaculation, also known as male orgasmic disorder or retarded ejaculation, is a condition where a man cannot ejaculate easily during intercourse, or can thrust for ages during intercourse without becoming fully sexually aroused and reaching the point of ejaculation easily.

The great news is that I have written a self-help treatment program to overcome problems with delayed ejaculation which is available online and which can enable you to ejaculate normally during sex - which means when you choose to do so - within a few weeks of starting the program of treatment. You can find out about this problem and how to solve it here.

Erection problems and sexual problems

They say the course of true love never runs smoothly, and sadly that's all too true with erection problems, premature ejaculation and retarded or delayed ejaculation. Young men may find they just can't contain themselves and ejaculate far too quickly, while other men may find they are unable to ejaculate at all!

And there can be few things more distressing than finding your previously stiff penis has suddenly wilted when you try and put the condom on - or, worse still, when you begin to make love. What's your penis trying to tell you with all these mischievous acts of sabotage?

Is there a solution to help you through the jungle of romance (or should that be the bush?) Yes, there are answers, and we have them.

Manifesting a brighter future

We have all heard of manifestation, the technique which gained popularity due to the publication of The Secret by Rhonda Byrne -  and now I am proud to introduce you to one of the best places you can go to find out more. Learn about manifestation here. And there's some great information on the Law of Attraction here.

Developing A Better Body

Make now mistake, looking good is just as important to men as it is to women. And these days more and more men are experiencing doubts about how fit they are and health problems that come from a sedentary lifestyle. Yoga is also a great way of overcoming a lack of fitness.

If you want to develop a better body, be in reasonably good shape, feel good about yourself, and appeal to woman, then check out the Adonis Golden Ratio - about which you can find more here and here. There is also some great information on the Golden Ratio and what it means here.

Put An End To Premature Ejaculation

One of the most embarrassing sexual dysfunctions for men is premature ejaculation, often defined by the man ejaculating in less than two minutes after penetration.

However a man who ejaculates far too soon during sex can gain control over premature ejaculation with programs online. Search for delay sprays like STUD 1000.

By the way, it's always amazing to see how women respond to fully mature masculinity. But so few men have that - even though it is what women crave. The values of strength, emotional stability, integrity, accountability, and so on, are all achievable through male initiation rituals - which give a man a sense of his place in the world.

Many men who haven't learned premature ejaculation control may have a low sexual self-esteem and worry about being able to satisfy a woman in bed - possibly because a past or present female sexual partner has had a tendency to be irritable about short-lived and unfulfilling sexual intercourse.

Nonetheless, loss of ejaculatory control may be uncomfortable to both partners.

Men think that when they ejaculate before they wish they will be judged badly - women are embarrassed that the man feels so bad about it. And it is true that a quick male orgasm almost certainly means the woman will not be able to orgasm during or after lovemaking.

Men's and boys' penis problems page

Whether you think your penis is abnormal, your foreskin won't go back, your dick is covered with white spots, you've damaged your dick, or you have some other embarrassing or worrying problem, fear not! And even if you just have an interesting question to which you want an answer, well, we can help there as well.

Some problems are dealt with off site - for example, information on a great home remedy for yeast infection which will ensure you have no more problems with yeast can be found here.

For example: "How far should I ejaculate?"; "How many times a week do men masturbate or have sex?" These and other similarly important questions are answered on our problem page. We have all the answers.

At least, we have most of them, and we'll give you a personal reply if you'd like one. After all, you don't want to suffer with any kind of penis problem. So we made this page as comprehensive as possible.

We also have an archive of hundreds of questions sent in by anxious readers on every aspect of the penis and male sexuality. If you have Peyronie's disease, you may wish to see our blog on the subject. Equally, if you have pearly penile papules, you may wish to check out or blog.

Relationship Advice

We have a great site to recommend for you - with many dating tips for men from the gurus of the seduction and pick up community. It's The Tao Of Badass, and it  explains, from a male point of view, the fundamental principles of establishing and developing a relationship between men and women.

There is also some great advice on how to have a relationship for men available here. Should you be interested in using the principles of manifestation to find a relationship, this site explains all.

Male andropause and the mid-life crisis - Declining libido and depression

As we get older we begin to lose our libido and our capacity for instant erections. This is the andropause, caused by a decline in effective testosterone levels in the body.

What's more, if a man hasn't achieved everything he hoped for by mid-life he may have the proverbial mid-life crisis.

A combination of declining potency and an inability to keep up with the young studs can be a depressing mixture which leads to feelings of worthlessness and despair.

Even if it isn't that bad, this time of reflection can still be unhappy - especially if a man finds his erections and libido diminish significantly. It's also quite common to find the size of your penis and testicles diminishes as you get older.

Fortunately, it's all curable. We tell you exactly what you can do about the andropause and mid-life crisis. That doesn't necessarily mean buying a Harley Davidson and running off with a woman young enough to be your daughter.

Relationship Issues

Are you be having relationship troubles? Has your boyfriend, girlfriend or partner left you? This can be a source of great pain to everyone, man or woman, and often we find that we have made a terrible mistake.

We want them back - regardless of whether we were the dumper or the dumped. And you know what? It is possible to get them back. Like everything in life, you just have to decide what you want and then work out a way to get it.

Fortunately, when it comes to relationship reconciliation, there are some unexpectedly easy ways. Can you imagine texting your ex back, for example? No, it does indeed sound unlikely, doesn't it?

But the reality is that texting is a very controlled form of communication, in which you have the power to slow down or speed up contact, be sure that you are giving the message you want to give out, and eventually fire up the sparks of passion into a blaze which will get you back into bed together.

Find out how to get your ex back here, where I explain how Text Your Ex Back, by Mike Fiore, works.

Hypospadias and Peyronie's disease

One boy in every hundred or so is born with a penis different from the "normal". This can be extremely traumatizing for him throughout his life.

Hypospadias involves an incomplete development of the penis, so that the urethral opening is not at the tip of the glans. There are other issues associated with it as well: twisting, incomplete foreskin, bending over at the tip, small size and so on.

Epispadias is a more severe form of incomplete penile development. One of the therapists responsible for this website has worked extensively with men who have an abnormal penis.

There is excellent support available - we tell you where to find it. By the way, a lot of men with hypospadias are smaller in size than they would like. For a hypospadias support group, see www.hypospadiasuk.co.uk .

Peyronie's disease is caused by injury to the penile chambers resulting in a bend or constriction in the flaccid or erect organ. We explain how this happens and direct you to websites which discuss the pros and cons of treatment: for example, surgery can be effective but may reduce your size slightly.

For men who might be gay or bisexual

About one in twenty men identify themselves as gay or bisexual. And for everyone who calls himself gay or bisexual, there are another three or four who will, at some point in their lives, have sexual contact with another man.

The testicles and scrotum

Your testicles spend their lives tucked between your legs, perhaps not getting the same attention you lavish on your cock, but they're as fundamental to your masculinity as your penis. Making sperm and testosterone, they are the essence of male fertility and potency.

Happily they rarely go wrong, but this page has the information which will guide you through any testicular crises and tell you all you need to know about the testicles. This includes, among other things, issues of size, appearance, testicular health and ejaculation.

Condoms and contraception

How to find the right size condoms - and other aspects of contraception. Great advice if you're just embarking on a sexual relationship: use a condom.

Other recommended websites

For men and women who are looking for advice on issues around love and sex, there are two guides which we recommend. The first is a guide for couples on the basic facts and information about intimate relationships, and the second is more advice-oriented.

This law is also known as the Law Of Creation, and used properly it seems to be a way in which you can manifest almost anything in your life. At least, that's the claim of the proponents, and who are we to argue?

We think we have the best men's website on the internet

And we aim to keep it that way. We welcome your suggestions and comments and we invite you to write for us on any aspect of being a man or male sexuality. We have many stories of personal experiences of being gay, living with hypospadias, and foreskin restoration, for example.

So, if you have something to say, let us know! We're probably already the biggest site on the internet dealing with these vital male issues: but we aim to become even bigger and better as time goes by.

No matter what size your penis happens to be, it's a truly wonderful organ with the capacity to bestow immense pleasure on you and your partner.

Whether that pleasure comes from masturbation, making love or just through the sheer thrill of your masculinity and virility, we men so rarely have the chance to discuss our issues openly and without embarrassment. As a result we often have no idea what is "normal", common, natural, or even possible, for that most glorious of creations - the male body in general and the penis in particular. This website puts that right.

And remember - even though we are blamed for so much in the world, it is still a wonderful experience to know what it means to be male, to experience masculinity - in short, to be a man! Get exactly what you want in life, relationships and the rest (all about manifestation) !

Penis size erect and flaccid

In a 1996 study, researchers looked at the penises of normal men (that is to say - a random sample from the general population) to establish what exactly constitutes "normal" penis size. The purpose of this research was to establish guidelines for surgeons to advise men who were seeking penile augmentation through surgery.

The researchers induced erection in these men by the use of drugs (pharmacologically induced erection). The results were as follows: average flaccid length was 8.8 cm (3.5 inches) and average erect length 12.9 cm (5.1 inches).

Note that, in keeping with popular belief, that neither a man's age nor the size of his flaccid penis was an accurate indicator of erect length. In fact, the stretched length of the flaccid penis most closely correlated with erect length.

(Although this is of limited interest to this website, the researchers concluded that only men with a flaccid length of less than 4 cm or a stretched or erect length of less than 7.5 cm should be considered as possible candidates for surgical penile lengthening.)

Of course, what constitutes normal penile size is of much interest to many people, not just those seeking surgery to make their organ bigger.

Of course there are few studies which show either the safety or efficacy of penile lengthening and girth augmentation procedures, and we would never recommend men to undergo this surgery. Rather, it is our hope that these statistics on penis size can reassure men who have doubts about their size.

All 80 men in the study had a normal penis - in other words, none of them showed congenital or acquired problems of the penis such as hypospadias or Peyronie's disease, prostatectomy or any other penile surgery.

The researchers measured both the flaccid and erect penis of each man to the nearest 0.5 cm. They also measured penile circumference, depth of the prepubic fat pad and stretched penile length. These measurements were taken in warm conditions to minimize the effect of temperature shrinkage!

The length of the penis was taken from the skin junction between the penis and the pubic area (with the tape pushed into the pubic bone) right along to the urethral meatus. The penile circumference was measured midway along the shaft; the fat pad depth by pushing the tape into the pubic bone.

All the men in this investigation had an intracavernous injection of Prostaglandin designed for evaluation of their erectile dysfunction; the measurement of their penises was taken during these investigations.

Penile length and circumference were measured when each man's erection was at its maximum. If full erection was not achieved, a mixture of phentolamine, papaverine and Prostaglandin was then added as an injection and the measurements were repeated.

As we already stated, average flaccid length was around 8.9 cm and mean erect length was 12.9 cm (rounded to 0.1 cm). The average erectile increase was therefore 4.0 cm.

Of course, how much penile length you have available to engage in lovemaking depends on how much fat you have over your pubic bone. The shaft of the penis hidden within this fat is effectively not available for intercourse! In this study, total penile length was the sum of erect length and fat pad depth.

The increase in length of the penis on erection had no obvious or clear relationship to flaccid penile length. Moreover, age had no bearing on either flaccid or erect penile length. Only fat pad depth differed significantly with age - being greater in the older subjects.

All in all, the results of this study serve to define average length and circumference of the soft and erect penis.

This is important because a man's perception of small size in either state may be very destructive to his self-confidence and self-esteem. In my experience anxiety about phallic size has little relationship to the true size and length of a man's penis.

An older group of men shows greater variation in penile length and extensibility than a younger group, a fact which reflects the loss of penile extensibility with age due to loss of elasticity of the tunica albuginea. Corporeal fibrosis may also lead to a loss of penile extensibility although this is not certain.

The depth of the pubic fat obviously makes a big difference to the apparent penile length: the more fat, the shorter the penis will appear to be.

Many men have the uncomfortable problem of a retractile penis (dealt with elsewhere on this website), and obesity is a major part of this problem.

For many men, knowing the effect of fat on the appearance of the penis may alleviate anxiety about penis size (and for those interested in penile augmentation, weight loss or suprapubic liposuction may be a simpler and safer alternative to surgery, which involves release of the suspensory ligament and many possible complications).

All in all, average flaccid length was 8.8 cm, stretched length 12.4 cm, and erect length 12.8 cm. The link between flaccid and erect length is not consistent - as we all know from our own experience. Or, if you don't, check out our page on penis size!
