Does Penis Size Really Affect Sexual Satisfaction In Women?

Behind the common thought that “bigger is better” is an obvious implication. That the larger a man is, the more pleasure he is capable of giving a woman.

In practically every part of the globe, ever since humans figured out that rubbing two sticks together produced fire, the male phallus has been a symbol of fertility and masculinity.

It has been seen as a proof of strength, endurance, ability, courage, knowledge, and love. So maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that the size of the penis is given incredible importance by most men, even those living today.

Of course, humans once thought many things were true that have since been proven dubious. For instance, the sun was once thought to revolve around the Earth. The world was flat. Diseases were caused by miasma or “bad air.”

So it’s worth asking if there is ANY truth to the assertion that penis size affects sexual satisfaction in women.

The answer?

YES - but not in the way most people think.

First, let’s talk about the most common cases in which such a factor comes into play. The general thought is that the longer the penis is, the more sexual prowess a man has.

This assertion is completely false, in the vast majority of cases.

Surveys have found that only 20% of women believe that penis size is important. A tiny percentage, when you consider that 45% of all men are worried about their size and would consider male enhancement solutions.

A further 1% believe penis size is VERY important. Now if a man were courting one of these women he might have a legitimate concern…but are these woman really talking about phallus length?

There’s this idea that a longer penis would allow a man to penetrate a female more deeply, increasing his chances of giving her an orgasm.

This is a myth. In reality, the erogenous zones in the vagina are in the part closest to the outside, near the clitoris. This erogenous “hot spot” is about four inches long. Which means most men are perfectly capable of hitting those zones even with a below-average penis size.

Nature has, after all, designed the overwhelming majority of men to be capable of pleasuring most women.

Furthermore, we have to consider the fact that most women do not ascribe nearly as much importance to vaginal penetration as men do. Over 98% of all men orgasm during penile-vaginal intercourse. The percentage of women that do?

30%.

Now, are there times women would find a shorter penis inadequate for sexual satisfaction?

Yes...not all women have the same preferences. “Deep” penetration can therefore be a significant factor to some women. Another survey found that 33% of women prefer a longer than average sized penis.

There are also cases of true micro-penis, a medical condition that a tiny percentage of the male population suffers from.

In short, the idea that a longer penis results in more sexual satisfaction (as it is typically framed) is mostly fiction.

Mostly.

But that’s a subject for another post.
