Small Penis: Lost Manhood?

Understanding of the sexual apparatus helps men, as they are then not disturbed by the advertisements by charlatans that make it their business to try and convince men that they are suffering from “lost manhood,” or that they are heading towards a condition of “impotence.”

A well-researched fact is that a small penis does not lead to non-performance sexually, unless of course it is abnormally small or there is an associated health problem.

But sexual stimulation is not all physical; it is closely interwoven with the psychical.

Even a perfectly healthy man finds it difficult to perform if he happens to think that his organ is small and does not satisfy his partner.

It is important to get to the root of the matter and erase such feelings as early as possible, before psychic forces of shame and low self-esteem develop further and act as inhibitions on the sexual life, leading men to withdraw into a shell.

All About the Male Genital Organs

The penis of a young man who has just crossed the puberty phase consists of: two corpora cavernosa and corpus spongiosum.

The corpora cavernosa are erectile bodies and contain a number of sinuses that get filled with blood, resulting in erection. The corpus spongiosum lies in the center under the two corpora cavernosa, and mainly consists of the urethra.

A sheath of loose connective tissue surrounds these bodies and the next layer is the skin. One inch towards the very end of the penis is the glans, which is a sort of a head.

The doubled skin over the glans is called the foreskin or prepuce. The glans is covered and a mucous membrane lines the prepuce.   This mucous membrane over the glans is thin, moist, red and contains several nerve papillae.

In an adult male, the prepuce is free from the glans and loose enough to retract over the glans, which is what usually happens during an erection.

If the prepuce can be stretched back more than half an inch beyond the glans penis or if it has restricted movement at the opening and difficult to pull back, this is an indication of some problem where help may be needed.


Cheese-like secretions from the glands at the head of the penis collect below the prepuce. Semen, which contains the sperm, is pushed out from the tip of the penis when the man reaches climax.

When an erection takes place, semen is ejaculated from the urethra at orgasm and urine is blocked.

The penis varies in size from person to person, and the variation could be anywhere from 2 ½ inches to 6 inches or more in length when flaccid and between 5 inches and 8 inches or more when erect.

But it has been scientifically proved that the size of the organs is not a sign of virility in the male. 

Testicles (Testes)

The male generative glands, the testes, are usually about 1 ½ inches in length, 1 ¼ inches in width, and almost 1 inch in thickness.

They reside within a scrotal sac, which is wrinkled on the outside and contains four thin coats within. The role of the testes is to generate sperm and produce testosterone, which is the main male sex hormone. Sperm is produced by several coiled masses of tubes called tubules inside the testes.


The scrotum provides protection and controls the temperature of the testes. For the development of sperm, the testes must be slightly cooler than the body temperature.

There are specific muscles attached to the scrotum wall that allow it to contract and relax, and through this mechanism the testicles move closer to the body for warmth and away from the body to cool down.


At the back of each testicle lies a long, coiled tube called the epididymis. This is where the sperm cells produced in the testes are stored. The sperm that comes out of the testes are still immature and not capable of fertilization and the epididymis brings them to maturity.

Menopause for men?

Women go through menopause, and that’s a known fact. With men, small changes may occur around 50 years of age, and more dramatic changes after the age of 70.

These changes do not include reduction in hormone production, as male hormones decline at a slow rate and in some men, they can remain normal well into old age.

There may be a decline in case of a health problem such as diabetes or some other illness.

This tells us that men can enjoy sex well into their old age. It’s not just that, the size of the penis does not matter where virility and reproduction is concerned.

However, alleviation of all concerns is crucial to be able to enjoy your sex life. If the penis size is of concern, there are several completely safe penis enlargement options today that we discuss throughout our website.
