Are You Small Enough?



Downsize your assumptions: Men think a 7-inch erection is ideal, but women actually prefer an inch less, a new study in the journal Psychology of Men & Masculinity reveals. Not only did women not consider a larger-than-average penis desirable, but their ideal size matched that of the average package. “The mythology of the oversize penis comes from men’s desires, not women’s. It’s a way men size each other up,” says Dr Brandy Engler, an LA sex therapist. In fact, a giant erection can be uncomfortable for some women, Engler says.
