Why men worry about their penis size

The human male is often worried about the penis size. Most of this worry comes from uncertainty as to what the normal or average penis size is. With the help of adult media, annoying spam and tabloids, many men place great importance upon the dimensions of their penis, as a sign of masculinity.

The hegemony of masculinity, requires a male to display physical attributes such as strength and bulkiness. There is also some importance placed upon the feats of sexual conquest and the sexual prowess, and although not all men resemble or seek such masculinity - there is a social pressure to adhere to it.

Penis size is regarded as a sign of masculinity. Having a large penis is desirable.

If you've ever had an email account, especially in the 00'ies, before decent spam filters evolved, you've come across a lot of spam that built on these misstatements. Even without reading the contents, men whom were happy with their penis measurements felt somewhat unnecessarily objectified and dehumanised.

It is not only the erect state of the penis that worries men but also the flaccid state, a large proportion of males do no wish to uncover their genitals in areas where it is practical and socially acceptable (think gym changing rooms and saunas). It is worth pointing out that the dimensions of flaccid penis do not reflect the dimensions of an erect one. Having a small flaccid penis is completely normal.


Penis sizes

One of the issues closely connected to the psychological well being of a male is the issue of penis size. The length, the width or circumference of the male organ grows during puberty, from about the age of 12 till about the age of 17. The size of the flaccid penis has little significance There is a very wide range of sizes of penis sizes, both length and width (circumference) and there is some correlation between various factors. 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.
