11 Myths About The Penis That Are Totally False

Penises: most of us have seen and had plenty of contact with them by now, but it’s safe to say you don’t have them completely figured out. In fact, you might believe some myths that are downright false. Here are a few that are total BS:

Shoe size has a correlation to penis size. I’ll just say it right now: all bigger feet means is bigger shoes. It’s purely a folklore that feet (or any other body parts for that matter) indicate penis size. A study was done in the UK that backs this up. They found that there was “no statistically significant correlation between shoe size and stretched penile length. The supposed association of penile length and shoe size has no scientific basis.” There you go!

Bigger means better. For starters, men seem to care far more about the size of their penis than women do. It’s not true, though, that bigger means better. I mean, sometimes too big can even be painful for a woman. Porn and media really do injustice to men and women alike by setting unreasonable expectations and claiming that size means better sex. The saying “it’s not the size of the boat, it’s the motion of the ocean” exists for a reason.

Men of color have larger penises. It’s unfortunate that we even need to talk about this, but it’s a myth that many people still deal with, educated or not. The reality is, though, that there’s a general range where most men are and it does not change based on race. This ridiculous myth probably stems from racism in one way or another. Next time you hear a girlfriend make a comment about a man of color having a bigger penis, give her an elbow and educate her.

The average penis is eight inches. Let’s get one thing straight: the average size of a penis is 5.17 inches. This is a wildly average number. It’s nothing like the jumbo penises you see in porn. So, if a guy is on the smaller side, it isn’t a big deal. It’s also not a big deal if a guy is on the larger side. More often than not, though, you’re going to find someone right in the middle.

Guys can’t feel much with a condom on. This one is complete and total BS. If a guy ever says this to you, run in the other direction because he’s a jerk. Sometimes guys can be wearing condoms that aren’t the right size for them or perhaps they need some lube. There’s also the option to wear thinner condoms than the regular kind. I have to say that most guys are happy to wear a condom as the many benefits obviously outweigh the downfalls.

Penises can’t break because there’s no bone. Ouch, this one is painful to think about (and I don’t even have a penis). Although there’s no bone, there are corpora cavernosa. Women’s Health reveals that these are “fibrous tissues that carry blood supply, protected by ligaments” and guess what—they can rupture. Ouch! This can happen from a woman being on top and being at the wrong angle.

Staying erect after sex means he’s ready for round two. Some erections just stick around after he’s ejaculated. Just because it’s up again doesn’t mean he wants to have sex again—or that he’s ready. Though some men are ready to perform again in as little as five minutes, it shouldn’t be assumed that’s the case.

Drunken limp penis means he’s not attracted to his girl. Let’s check the facts: alcohol is a depressant. If a depressant isn’t good for the proper functioning of the rest of the body, do you think it’s good for the penis? No, a limp penis not about how sexy you are. Rather, it’s a natural part of a male being intoxicated. It doesn’t happen to everyone, but it’s not unusual when it does happen.

Sex is only about penetration. Did you know that only 25 percent of women are able to regularly experience an orgasm through vaginal intercourse? This means that sex is about far more than penetration. Man, if only this was taught in sex ed in high schools. We’d have guys learning far faster.

Blue balls will kill a guy. This sounds like it’s about balls and not penises, but they’re all connected—literally. It’s a total myth that if a guy can’t ejaculate he’ll actually explode from such painful blue balls. Sure, it’s shown that blue balls are actually uncomfortable, but they aren’t life-threatening. Any guy that says he won’t be okay if he’s left with blue balls is totally full of crap.

There’s something men can do to enlarge their penises. There are a variety of advertisements about cream, pumps, and pills. All of this is garbage. There’s nothing a man can do to enhance his natural penis size. It is what it is. If your guy ever tried to do something about changing his penis size, please tell him to cut it out. Note that Viagra does increase blood flow, but nothing can permanently alter the size.
