Disadvantages of having a thin penis and solutions

Reduced sexual satisfaction in women: In a small study done in 2000, Russell Eisenman of the University of Texas-Pan American found that 45 out of 50 women questioned stated that a thick penis was significant in sexual satisfaction. It was concluded that this is caused due to the increased surface area of the penis which fills out the vaginal walls much better in a woman. Thus, this study clearly shows that a thick penis does increase sexual satisfaction in both partners, especially in females.

Problems during sex: Logically, a thin penis can create several serious problems for men as well. The act of sex, itself, can be severely disturbed and the methods of contraception can be greatly affected. For example, a condom would not really fit on a thin penis and could easily slip off during sex. This could lead to pregnancy and the spread of potential sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Similarly, a thin penis would greatly reduce sexual pleasure and the level of satisfaction in men as well due to inability of vaginal walls to fully grip an already thin penis.

Psychosocial problems

Having a too small or thin penis naturally leads to low self-esteem, marriage anxiety or sex phobia, mental stress and eventually leading to a “small penis syndrome”. This can severally affect family life and social activities and giving rise to a typical “introvert personality”. The introverted personality is a personality type for the person who is often a loner and prefers to be alone. He thinks of his thin penis as the only part of his body that is abnormal and its size eventually brings him down.

What can you do about a thin penis?

For those who want to increase their girth within a short period of time frame (1-3 months), I highly recommend you to try the BathMate Hydro Max (low end model cost $100 which is sufficient for most men, but if you have the extra money, go for the X-series for faster result) or you can try the Penomet.

Hormonal stimulation to increase penis thickness: As mentioned above, several hormones such as thyroid hormones, growth hormone secreted from pituitary gland and testosterone released from testis may have an important role in causing the “thin penis”. It has been suggested that it is the deficiency of one of these hormones that could lead to an underdeveloped or thin penis. The use of hormonal therapy or injections to correct these deficiencies, however, is still highly questionable because of the following reasons:

  • It is not known if these hormones would really work once the condition has been already developed.
  • The use of hormones is not free of health hazards and side effects

Therefore, while the use of hormonal therapy to treat other diseases such as menopausal syndrome, osteoporosis, thyroid and pituitary disorders is widely recommended, there is no evidence that supports their successful use in the treatment of thin penis.

Surgery to increase thickness: If a surgery is performed to correct a thin penis, some fat from the lower abdominal wall is drawn out through liposuction and injected beneath the loose skin of the penile shaft to create an illusion of thickening. Alternatively, dermal or other free grafts are layered around the penile shaft, beneath the skin sleeve, to increase girth.

However, with the passage of time, the injected fat or free grafts, both of which are a vascular (without blood supply), only die, a phenomenon known as necrosis. This necrosis will sooner or later cause the penis to return to its original pre-operative dimensions. Also, surgery comes with many unwanted side effects such as bleeding, pain, infection and is very expensive as well.

Vacuum pumps: The use of penis pumps to correct erectile dysfunction or other sexual disorders is not new. They work on the basic principle of increasing the “blood flow” in the penis that eventually leads to longer, firmer and harder erections. Based on the same principle, while vacuum pumps can cause “temporary increase” in the length and thickness of an “erect” penis, this enhancement is not long-lasting or permanent.

Natural penis enlargement methods

Penis stretchers and extenders: With the advent of traction based penis enlargement devices such as penis extenders, a new hope has been born for those who have small or thin penises.  A thought should now be given to try these newer, scientifically proven methods that have shown to cause increase in both length and girth of the penis. Above all, their use is scientifically proven, safe and very cost-effective as well. However, it is strongly advised to use combined approach with exercises to additionally stimulate growth of penis girth. If you have seriously decided to enhance your penis size, then I can suggest you to use the Phallosan Forte. Another solution I recommend is the BathMate Hydropump. BathMate has won many awards and have proven to be the best of the best for bigger and longer penis.

Penis exercises: Doing penis exercises to increase penis length and thickness are considered the safest and affordable cheapest way to correct a thin penis. However, the biggest drawback with penis exercises alone is that they require a lot of time to yield significant results. Also, the growth of the penile tissue is very slow and is often negligible in individuals with thin penis.
