Does Penis Size Matter to Women?

Sexuality researchers, Masters and Johnson, claim that female satisfaction is not dependent on penis size in any physical way. So why is penis size portrayed in movies and magazines as being of the utmost importance when it comes to sex? It’s true that our standards of perfection in the media are as impossible as they are inaccurate. It should be no surprise that penis size is portrayed with the same inaccuracies. Some ladies fall prey to this stereotype, however, and claim that penis size matters. So, does size matter? Studies have been done to show just exactly how much.

Russell Eismen performed a survey in which he asked 50 women ages 18 to 25 the following question: “In having sex, which feels better, length of penis or width of penis?”
The results revealed that most of the 50 women claimed that width was more important than length. Only 5 of the 50 women claimed that length was better than width. Most of the women surveyed, claimed they find an abnormally long penis to actually be uncomfortable during sex. None of the women surveyed said the width and length were of equal importance and none responded that they did not know.

It has been speculated that women could be more inclined to prefer a wider penis, as opposed to a longer one, because the base of the penis can stimulate the clitoris during intercourse. A wider penis can also have the effect of providing a feeling of fullness both physically and psychologically.

To know for sure, the obvious place to look would be the bible for women and sex: Cosmopolitan Magazine. According to a recent survey reported in the magazine, 56% of women claim that penis size does matter. It seemed that this decision was for purely aesthetic reasons. Some women just prefer the looks of a larger penis. It’s kind of similar to how some men prefer larger breasts on women. There doesn’t have to be any real reasoning behind it, it’s just personal preference.

Preference for penis size may be directly related to the size of the woman judging.  Naturally, a smaller woman may feel intimidated by a larger penis because this can prove to be uncomfortable during sex. You see this kind of correlation among races. We’ve all heard the stereotypes about Asian men having abnormally small penises while black men are said to have abnormally large penises. When you look at the average size of women of the same race, it makes sense. Asian women are generally built smaller and black women are generally built larger.

If you are unhappy with your penis size, however, you shouldn’t feel hopeless. If you were to ask every female you know whether they would prefer a man with a large penis who’s terrible in bed or a man with a below average sized penis who is terrific in bed, I guarantee they would choose the second man every time. Being able to please a woman sexually has little to do with your hardware and everything to do with your skill and knowledge of sex. So even though some women may not be thrilled at the first “unveiling,” a quick consulting of the Kama Sutra should convert her in no time.
