Of all the sex-related topics out there, the one surrounded by the most myth is definitely penis enlargement. If you’re a guy who’s ever checked their spam folder, you’ll see reams and reams of emails promising more inches with pills, creams, surgery and more. Don’t trust them, obviously — however, there are so many who are trying to sell people on having a bigger penis that there must be more to it, right?
A small penis isn’t more sensitive than a larger one, but surprisingly there is some correlation, many men with a relatively small penis report that they ejaculate prematurely. From the purely medical point of view, this could be conincidence, but not from the psychological. No matter how important or unimportant penis size is for the female partner, men with a smaller penis often feel unsecure, at least subconsciously. Insecurity leads to stress and bodily tension, which encourages coming too fast. This subjective failure causes even more stress the next time, a cycle that’s hard to break. That’s the main reason why penis enlargement often assists in lasting longer in bed, too.
As I recently learned from Missouri State sociology professor Alicia M. Walker, men’s obsession with the diminutive size of their dicks can be debilitating. She’d spoken to numerous men who haven’t been to the doctor for a physical in a decade because they didn’t want to be naked in front of their doctor. Others had never approached someone for a romantic relationship because they didn’t believe anyone would be interested in them because of their penis size.
