This is a popular question which has men’s ears burning; especially if you are concerned about the size of your manhood, compared to other men. If you take a random survey of 100 women asking them if size REALLY matters, you’d probably get a different result every time. Size definitely matters to some women, and for various reasons. But for others, they would agree with the phrase “It’s not the size of the ship, it’s the motion of the ocean.”
Penis size can certainly have an effect on how the sex “feels” vaginally, but it’s not a guarantee to having a meaningful, loving, passionate relationship. Some women I’ve talked to complained about their guys having TOO BIG of a stick, causing them to experience painful sex. If you’re packing a long schlong, it doesn’t mean you’re a better lover than a guy with a less than average size. Bragging about how big you are, doesn’t always give you an advantage in the bedroom. It may lure the ladies to your den, but keeping her there is another story altogether. Inattentive lovers sporting a big penis, have no long-term advantage over a modestly sized guy, who knows how to get her off or “use it”. On the same note, a guy with a less than average size penis who can’t work it, may as well head to the bedroom with his trusty tube sock, and call it a night.

New research by the Journal of Sexual Medicine has shown that contrary to popular or “wishful” thinking, size does matter for women who can ONLY achieve vaginal orgasm which requires a longer penis (nothing a great toy can’t solve either). This can be looked at as good news for guys, because not all women need a guy with a longer penis, to achieve orgasm. So for women who achieve vaginal orgasm, size for them matters if they orgasm vaginally.
“A comprehensive worldwide study of more than 40 independent penis size research projects, undertaken since 1942, has come up with a general penis size guideline. With over 11,000 participants, the survey puts the average erect size of the adult penis between 5.5 inches and 6.2 inches in length and 4.7 inches and 5.1 inches in girth. In addition, according to a recent survey, 90% of women prefer a wide penis to a long one because increases in length do little to enhance her physical pleasure. ” AskMen.com
