Some guys are big dicks and some guys have big dicks. Fortunately for nice dudes with small penises, having a larger than average member won't guarantee that women will be more attracted to you.
In fact, according to science, size doesn’t really matter to ladies nearly as much as men think it does.
So you all can stop comparing your jockstraps in the locker room.
The next time a girl unzips your pants and starts laughing at your (lack of) length, you can cockslap her with this fact: humans have the biggest penis of any primate both in terms of absolute size and relative proportion. Everybody wins!
So, where did this big rumor come from?
To be fair, penis size somewhat matters -- but back in the day, when it came to natural selection, it mattered a lot more. Bigger ones originally gave women a petter chance of getting pregnant, so paleolithic females likely developed a preference for longer length.
Larger penises tended to be better at clearing out sperm from other partners, which gave men an evolutionary advantage as well. Thus, it was kind of a big deal to procreate with a "big" guy.
In terms of attractiveness, having a larger penis does have some greater effect, but only to a certain extent. Especially because preferences vary, you shouldn’t go flashing your member to win her over after the first date (it might not hurt, though)!
Recently, researchers found that flaccid penis size played a role in perceived attractiveness. They asked females to rank the attractiveness of males based on penis size and found that a larger penis ranked higher. But, as any woman would know, sometimes big can be too big.
The scientists also found there was a limit, and any flaccid penis larger than 7.6 cm was considered unattractive.
The conclusion? It’s better to be proportionate to your body.
While we’re huge proponents of “it’s not what you got, it’s how you make it work,” penis size does have a small influence on a man’s ability to pleasure a partner.
Specifically for one kind of orgasm, some women experience better vaginal orgasms with larger penises because they stimulate the entire length of the vagina. We repeat, this is just one kind of orgasm, though.
So if you’re lacking in the length department, you should probably become BFFs with your girl’s clitoris.
Ultimately, almost all studies have shown that the person attached to the penis matters more in terms of sexual satisfaction (which is why you’ll never marry Jon Hamm, despite his notorious well-endowment). So, even if you’re a giant dick, having a giant dick won’t help you.
Like engagement rings and fast food, while size somewhat matters, bigger does not necessarily mean better.
