Modern Love

Does size really matter?

Men seem to think that their self-worth is directly related to how many inches they’re packing in the nether regions.

They also seem to think that the one and only way to satisfy a female is to have a long enough tool to push a certain button.

Well, boys, how do you explain lesbians? A girl can just as easily satisfy a girl without even having one of those “tools.” I know you’ve seen the videos.

Sure, to an extent it’s kind of a bonus if you have some nicely sized junk, but there’s a fine line between a pleasant surprise and the next
American Horror Story.

Truth is, us ladies are a lot more complex. It’s going to take more than just anything over 5 inches to satisfy us.

We are like ovens. It takes some time to heat us up. Whereas men are like microwaves, all you have to do is turn it on, push a button and he’s good to go! Okay, that was an awful metaphor, but you catch my drift.

According to a 2014 study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the average length of an American male’s erection is slightly over 5.5 inches and only 2% of guys are packing 8 inches or more.

In all reality, everyone is unique and everyone has different preferences. Different people enjoy different things and are satisfied in different ways. It’s important to learn your partner and how to get them going.

If your size is below average, find a lover that enjoys that over a huge dong. If you’re packing mad heat, I’m sure you can find someone who isn’t entirely too intimidated by it. If you’re worried that your God-given man-bits won’t do the trick, there are many different sex positions that I’m sure you’ve researched by now that can accommodate for that. (I.e. doggy style, cowgirl)

So whether you’re rocking an anaconda or a gardener snake, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re a lost cause in the sack.

If you don’t take it from me, take it from the sexpert, Dr. Hernando Chaves. He is an author for, a clinical sexologist and sex coach in Beverly Hills, CA.

“It’s a myth that a large penis equates to sexual satisfaction or relationship happiness,” Dr. Chaves said.
