Why should you love your penis?
Though larger percentages of women suffer from body confidence issues, there is a rising number of men who suffer with very similar problems. In particular, one of the key areas where men find a huge amount of pressure, is in their penis size.
According to a 2014 study of 50,000 men, 45% of men would like a larger penis. This stigma has many origins, from playground bragging, to sexualised images in the media, but the end result is that many men have a negative impression of their penis (read our blog on 5 reasons why people are insecure about their penis).
Despite the fact that 85% of women are happy with their partner’s penis, insecurities about penis size are prevalent and spreading. Today we are going to discuss some of the reasons why you should love your penis, and some methods to use if you want to address your body insecurities head on.
Knowing the average
Many men think that they have a smaller penis than average, but when it comes down to it, these assumptions are incorrect more often than not. In reality, most of Europe, including the UK, as well as Peru, Chile and America have average sized penis’ ranging from 5 inches to 5.7 inches when erect. Commonly, people have a tendency to view their penis from a certain angle or use pornography to create an image of what their penis size should be, and these can also cause those people to believe their penis is smaller than it really is.
Size isn't as important as people think
Despite all this fervour about penis size being an issue, a vast majority of women have said they are happy with their partner's penis size (there has been less research done on homosexual relationships).
If you are concerned about your penis size, there are a number of different steps that you can take, starting with getting more active. The NHS recommend that shaving pubic hair, getting active and losing weight are all steps that can increase body confidence (which is often the prevailing issue for penis insecurity).
You can take steps to help
