Here Are 7 Myths About The Penis That You Shouldn’t Believe Anymore


We’re always talking about the female body and debunking the myths related to women’s bodies. However, very rarely do we pay attention to a man’s body and try to find out what is true and what’s not. Men do have insecurities as well and it’s important that we know the truth about their bodies and educate ourselves just like we expect them to. Some of the biggest insecurities of men are related to their penis. We’re here to bust some myths so that you know better! 

Myth #1: Your Penis Size Is Related To Your Shoe Size

Nobody knows where this myth originated from and why but multiple studies have, over time, proved that there is no scientifically backed correlation between the size of a man’s feet and the size of his penis. So, the next time you look down to judge a guy’s size by his foot size, know that you could be in for a surprise.

Myth #2: The Bigger, The Better

It is an age-old argument but the truth is that size does not matter at all! It is not the length but the girth and the technique with which you use your sex tool that matters. You’ll be surprised to hear that a survey actually revealed that the wives of men with larger than average penis were more likely to cheat than women whose husbands had average sized dicks. This is because women subconsciously associate bigger penises with more pain.

Myth #3: If He’s Still Erect After A Round, He Wants Another One

Sex marathons may seem like a fun thing but in reality, men have a limit on the number of times they can have sex. So, if he’s still erect after a round, it is more likely that it is because of the blood flow to his penis or the level of his arousal. It could also be because of a little blue pill that he decided to pop (viagra, I’m talking about viagra). It varies from men to men but all of them definitely need downtime between rounds! 

Myth #4: You Can Make It Larger…

… with pills or cream. No, you cannot! Ladies, if you ever wish that your man had a bigger penis, talk to him about improving his technique and don’t shame him into taking pills that do not work. There is no scientific backing that proves that any pills or creams can actually have the intended effect. In fact, they’re counter-effective most of the time because they contain undisclosed ingredients that may be harmful.

Myth #5: There’s Always A Lot Of Ejaculation

If you’ve been watching porn, you’ve been misled into thinking that men will be ejaculating bucket loads of semen when they come. In reality, men ejaculate a teaspoon of semen every time they orgasm and that’s absolutely normal.

Myth #6: Average Size Of Erection Is 8 Inches

Let me stop you right there! No, this is not true, not at all! The average size of the penis, when erect, is somewhere between 4.7 inches to 5.8 inches!

Myth #7: Daily Masturbation Is A Bad Idea

Masturbating, as a lot of studies have proven, is actually extremely healthy for you. While there are myths that daily ejaculation may change or damage your sperm’s DNA but the reality is that it only affects the number of sperms in your ejaculate. That’s it, that’s all it does. You should only be concerned about that if you’re trying to get pregnant!
