Medical facts about penis sizes

  • There is a great deal of research on the subject of penis size.
  • There is a very wide range of penis sizes, both length and width (circumference). There may be minor correlation with race/age.
  • There is very little penis growth until the onset of puberty. The length, the width or circumference of the penis grows during puberty, from about the age of 12 till about the age of 17.
  • No significant changes in size occur after puberty naturally.
  • The size of the flaccid penis has little to no correlation to the size of an erect penis, as some men are showers and others are growers.
  • There is no correlation of penis size to size or shape of any other part of the body including size of feet, arms, hands, fingers and digits. Features such as baldness, hairlessness also show no correlation to penis size.
  • Almost half of men believe that they have a small penis. Whilst in reality, most men's penis size is (surprisingly!) average.
  • It is also known that men care about the size of their member more than women care about the size of the same member.
  • When it comes to sexual satisfaction for women, girth or circumference is more important then length.
  • A condition called micropenis occurs in 0.6% of men, almost one in 166. It indicates a penis length which is 2,5 standard deviations below average.

Penis enlargement

Is penis enlargement possible?

Penis is not a muscle so it cannot be exercised as one, however it is made of soft tissue that engorges with blood when erect

Increasing penis size would be possible through increasing the blood flow and increasing the volume of blood that is contained within the penile soft tissue

There are a lot of unsubstantiated claims about penis enlargement,however, there is no guaranteed easy way of increasing penis size

The closest thing to real penis enlargement are penis pumps and penis enlargement surgery

However, only a third of men are satisfied with penis enlargement surgery results. Penis pumps bring very moderate temporary results through regular use.

There is no evidence for penis enlargement pills, lotions, extenders and other methods to work

Medical facts about penis enlargement:

  • There is not enough research on the subject of penis enlargement.
  • There is no evidence for lotions and pills to increase penis size.
  • Lotions may work through physical application over a long period of time, but any effect the may have due to natural stetching of the soft tissue and not due to use of lotions at all.
  • There is no evidence for penis enlargement pills to have any positive effect at all. Furthermore there is no scientific rationale for them to work.
  • Natural stretching of the penile soft issue over time through regular exercise is called jelqing, and there is some evidence to substanciate it's effect. There is also some scientific rationale in favour of jelqing

Condoms. How safe are they?

How effective are condoms in protecting against sexually transmitted diseases?

Consistent and correctly used condoms are very effective at preventing STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, and HIV (the virus that causes AIDS). When it comes to HIV, using a condom makes sex 10,000 times safer than not using a condom.

Consistent and correctly used condoms are effective at preventing STDs like genital ulcer diseases, such as genital herpes, syphilis, and chancroid, only when the infected area or site of potential exposure is protected.

Consistent and correctly used condoms may reduce the risk for genital human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and HPV-associated diseases (e.g., genital warts and cervical cancer).

How effective are condoms in protecting against unwanted pregnancy?

98% safe

This means that if 100 women use condoms regularly over the course of a year, only 2% become pregnant.

However, the 2 percent condom failure rate, is not necessarily attributed to the condom quality issues or ineffectiveness in stopping the sperm from reaching the eggs. Instead the failure rate could be a result of human error such as misuse of condoms.

Medical facts about condoms

  • There is a great deal of research on the effectiveness of condoms.
  • Research including laboratory studies and epidemiologic studies have shown that latex condoms (and subsequently other studies on on materials such as polyurethane and polyisoprene) provide an effective barrier against even the smallest STD pathogens.
  • 1% of people in the world are allergic to latex and may find discomfort in using latex condoms.
  • When it comes to HIV,using a condom makes sex 10,000 times safer than not using a condom.
  • There is no medical reason why someone can’t use a condom. People with latex allergies can use latex-free condoms made of polyurethane and polyisoprene.
  • To achieve maximum protection when using condoms, they must be used consistently (every time) and correctly (including storage, using correct size and correct way to put on).
  • The failure of condoms to protect against STD/HIV transmission usually results from inconsistent or incorrect use, rather than product failure.
  • Inconsistent or nonuse of condoms can lead to becoming infected with an STD because transmission can occur with a single sex act with an infected partner.
  • People who use condoms feel their experiences are just as pleasurable as people who don’t. Moreover, safe sex means there is less stress and worry about catching an infection or getting pregnant, so people are free to enjoy themselves.

Other facts about condoms

  • There is a very wide range of penis sizes, both length and width (circumference). There is also a very wide range of condom sizes to match.
  • Condoms can vary in size (length and width), thickness, material, shape (some are flare-shaped, larger around the head), color, smell and added chemicals (such as condoms that prolong the ejaculation), lubrication and flavour.
  • Different countries use different standards of condom certifications, so condoms sold in the US and EU (highest standard of certification) may be more of better quality than the ones sold elsewhere.
  • To achieve certification in US and EU every condom must go through rigorous tests.
  • One of the most effective tests for condom is passing a current through a liquid within a condom to test for tears and holes, the tiniest hole would pass the current through and trigger an alarm.
