Grower Not Shower

Share Your Story: How I Stopped Worrying About Penis Size

By DocIrysch

What I struggled with most

Like a lot of guys I am a grower and not a shower. That means my penis shrinks considerably when flaccid. Showers have penises that are close to the same size flaccid or erect. So, of course, in the locker room you compare yourself to the showers, even though often times you will have the larger erect penis. I am also 5'9" and 155 pounds so not a big guy anyways.

I struggled with feelings of inadequacy, mostly due to ignorance.

What made me work on it

I got married young and then divorced after 12 plus years. I timidly entered the dating world to discover that I was more than fine. Funny, people are always talking about 8, 9, or 12 inch penises as if that is what you need. I am 6 long and 6 around and most of the women (most of which experienced) I've been with think I'm huge. More than several women have said that they have been with bigger but it wasn't enjoyable.

So, I went on to working on being a better lover which is more important than penis size.

Lessons Learned

  • If your erect penis is more than 2 inches long, you can reach nearly any woman's g-spot on the top of the inside of her vagina. Most women don't care about length, girth is a more important factor. What is a woman going to do with a 10+ inch penis? Have her liver stimulated? You can't get all in. With my "average" 6 incher, I have hit bottom on several women.

If I could say one thing to others about penis size now

Two things to make your penis look and feel bigger: Lose belly fat and shave your pubic hair. Sex will be better and seeing yourself will give you confidence. Trust me, I did both and it made a difference.

Learn many ways to make a woman orgasm, even those that do not include using your penis.
