Long or Short - Does Size Matter?

The size of the male reproductive has always been a huge topic of discussion.  This discussion cannot have a conclusion as two school of thoughts exist, which have their own take on this debate. One set of women/homosexual men believe what matters more than the size, which takes both the length and the girth into consideration, is the technique of a man. The other set of people believe that the size is crucial for an enjoyable and satisfying experience of intercourse and an even better orgasm.

  • Some women believe that a longer penis is necessary as it hits the G-spot more easily in between strokes made during the intercourse. However, there is no concrete proof available for this as a lot of women have claimed that if a man is able to last longer and provides more clitoral stimulation, it is sufficient to attain an orgasm.
  • A set of women have also condemned the large size of the penis, which said that if a penis is above the average size, it actually hurts during intercourse as the average vagina is approximately 6 inches in size. This set of women has also laid emphasis on the girth as they believe that a wider girth is what maximises pleasure and helps in attaining a more heightened orgasm.
  • Distorted perceptions of the ideal penis size along with unrealistic standards set by porn have lured women into believing that there is an ideal size which matters. However, the size of the penis depends on a variety of factors like the country of origin, height of the person, genes etc., which is why, what is considered ideal in India might not be ideal in Rwanda.
  • As mentioned earlier, there can never be a solid conclusion to this, but it can be agreed upon that girth matters more than the length and satisfaction during sexual intercourse doesn’t only depend only on the size of the penis. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.
