I'm concerned my penis is too small. It's 3.5 inches when erect. Is that normal or am I too small. My girlfriend told me I'm half as big as all of her other partners.

Thanks for your question.

Penises like people come in all sizes; there is no normal when it comes to their size. According to the Kinsey Study, the average penis size is 14 cm or 5.5 inches. Because this is an average some men will be longer than this and some will be shorter; again there is no normal.

If you are concerned that penis size determines your ability to satisfy your partner don’t be as most women do not orgasm with intercourse alone no matter the size of the penis. Our whole bodies are involved when we have sex and learning to use multiple body parts (like fingers, tongues etc) during sex will go a long way to increase your partners pleasure.
