Is There a Penis Size That's Just Too Small? 

Dear Athena,

Is there a penis size that is just too small? I am worried that I am abnormal and it will affect any relationship I have. I have had two bad experiences with this so far in my life, and I do not want to keep setting myself up to be hurt every time I am rejected by someone I like.

Thanks,

Rob

Dear Rob,

I get a lot of penis questions. Believe me, the numbers are steep. So, to all you men out there, I want you to listen hard and listen well! I'm hoping we can settle this penis-size dilemma once and for all.

According to every resource I have ever encountered, the average penis size is within about half an inch of 5.24 inches.

Have you heard of micropenis? According to WebMD, that's the medical term for the 0.6 percent of men with the smallest penises. (My family doc confirmed this.) And by small, we're talking three-and-two-thirds inches when measured — flaccid — from the pubic bone to the tip of the penis. To measure accurately, bring the ruler to your pubic bone and stretch the penis as far as it will go. (FYI: If you had micopenis, the doctors would have discovered this at birth, as it is a genetic or hormonal condition.)

But forget about measuring your member! Resist the urge to sulk and stress in front of the mirror! Penis size is one of the most common concerns for men, but don't let it be the measure of your worth. When polled, most women don't care about size — they're more interested in how you use what you've got.

It sucks that you've had some bad luck with the ladies, but maybe there were other factors involved — or maybe those girls were shallow. What matters most isn't what you're born with; it's what you do and how you treat people. If you focus on that, I have no doubt you'll meet someone who wants you, just the way you are.

Yours,

Athena
