Do Women Care About Penis Size?

Written by Samantha on March 8, 2016

It is an age old question, and when asked, many women might tell you one thing or another.

This is for the simple fact that so many women might like a man, but they do not want to hurt his feelings by actually telling him that perhaps he is too small for her.

This is something that most men worry about, and they feel if they’re not packing more than 7 or 8 inches, they just don’t have enough to please her.

This is not true, but there is some truth on whether or not women care about the size of a man’s penis.

Some Survey Facts to Get You Started

There have been numerous surveys conducted regarding penis size and what women think about it.

According to these surveys, every woman is different, but it also helps to know where you might fall within the category, depending on your specific penis size.

Cosmopolitan surveyed a group of men and women on whether or not they think penis size matters, and the average penis size of the group of men was surveyed.

1,100 readers that took the survey ranged from men to women and were between the ages of 18 and 34. Only 4% of those that took the survey were men, while the other 96% were women.

89% of all of the ones that took the survey were not worried about their partner’s penis size.

However, this is for those that have been in relationships, and have had sexual interactions with the person in their relationship.

During the survey, the women also recorded the size of their partners penis, and whether they thought they were too small, too large or just right. 56% of them went with average, though not stating how large this is and 33% stated too large.

11% of them stated that it might be on the smaller side for them.

Putting our obsession with size into perspective

To put penis size into retrospect, the average flaccid penis is around 3 to 4 inches, while the average erect one is around 5 to 6 inches. This is just average numbers, while some fall below, and some above these averages.

Do men feel like they would be happier with a little more length and girth? Absolutely.

Do they feel that they do not pleasure their partner enough in the bedroom because of the size of their penis, whether it is due to length or girth? Also yes.

31% of women that took this survey stated that they do not have an orgasm because of the penetration that they feel during intercourse.

This could be because of size, or because of lack of ability to find the sweet spots when in the bedroom, though.

This also includes 59% of women that stated that they were less than satisfied in the bedroom, but they still did not clear up whether this was due to penis size or something else.

Want More Facts?

If you want some more survey fun facts, then consider another survey that was done.

The review is on all of the studies that have been done that examine penis length and thoughts on it.

One of the most notable findings was that men, on average, of about 15,000 of them, only topped out at 5.2 inches at fully erect.

Not a bad number. However, other studies put erect penises around 5.6 inches, and so on.

However, research conducted by UCLA showed that women like to have a penis that is around 6 inches or so, and anything too small or too big is not something on their list as being pleasurable in the bedroom.

There were other things that the women stated that the men could do to make their penis more attractive, rather than having more girth or length since girth ranked around forth on the list and length was a six.

Women are all over the place when it comes to what it is that they like when it comes to the men that they sleep with, and this all depends on the specific woman that they are sleeping with at the time.

However, when a man feels that his penis is too small, he might need to try other tactics that make him feel a bit more confident in the bedroom.

There are some facts and tips that you may want to know when it comes to your specific penis size. When it comes to surveys, many men still are not confident enough to know that what women are saying is actually true.

It is best for them to just suck it up and do something to really make it larger, and thus better able to get the job done to both partners satisfaction.

These men want to please their partners, so here are some fun facts and tips on how to enlarge your penis and get back on track to sexual pleasure.

  • Women feel that men that shave, or trim around their penis are much more attractive to sleep with, regardless of their penis size.
  • Men that stay clean, keep clean and are more confident about their penises are much more likely to please their partners in the bedroom.
  • Using natural products can help to boost a little bit more blood in the area, making the penis seem and feel a bit larger than it is, making for a great time in the bedroom.
  • Women actually pay a lot of attention to the size, shape and look of the scrotum over the other areas of the penis.
  • Worrying too much about the look, shape, size, length and so on about the penis and then speaking with your partner about how insecure you are with it can be a turn off for the woman that is looking at sleeping with the man.
  • Overly large penises are generally a turn off for women, so if you’re looking to add a bit of length onto it, make sure not to go overboard because this can become a physical problem when it is not physically fitting inside her.
  • Guys that are overconfident about their penises can be a turn off for the women that they sleep with, so if you’re bigger, or you think you’re bigger, lets just keep our mouths shut about it.
  • Make sure that if you’re using enlargement methods, that you’re always doing so according to instructions and safely for your health, this can be something dangerous to do if you’re not familiar with the specific product.
