Does size matter?

A 2006 American Psychological Association (APA) study asked men and women a simple question about their sex life: Does size matter? They found that (Lever, 2006):

  • 55% of men felt “satisfied” with the size of their penis
  • 85% of women were satisfied with their partner’s penis

Another study from the Archives of Sexual Behavior found that men who were satisfied with their penis were more likely to be sexually active (Gaither, 2016). The key to better sex is confidence and technique (as you’ll see below).

  • Regardless of how you measure up, it’s important to note that there are a lot of other factors that contribute to being “good at sex” than just penis size.

Average penis size

The average erect penis size is 5.17 inches long (Veale, 2015). But regardless of how you measure up, it’s important to note that there are a lot of other factors that contribute to being “good at sex” than just penis size.

5 best sex positions for guys with a small penis

If you want to get more penetration with a smaller penis, it’s all about using these five sexual positions for deeper penetration. Admittedly, the suggestions below are subjective and only refer to heterosexual sex. Ultimately, the best sex positions are whatever feels best for both you and your partner(s).

  1. Curved Back Doggy Style: The receiving partner can drop their head and chest down on the bed or floor while raising their butts in the air to maximize penetration. Avoid the rounded “cat-back” position for best results
  2. Side Saddle: This position increases contact with the vaginal wall and the ever-elusive “G spot.”
  3. Pile Driver: It’s an acrobatic position (your partner is on their back with legs up and splayed), but this position allows for deeper penetration and better hip movement
  4. Use Your Fingers: Clitoral stimulation is essential to female orgasm. Use your hands before and during penetration in positions like missionary or cowgirl.
  5. Reverse Cowgirl (with a pillow): Guys, prop your hips up with a pillow to find that perfect angle (you’ll know when you’ve found it)

Also, remember that anal sex is an option if you and your partner are interested.

How to have better sex with any size penis

Sex isn’t necessarily about the size of your penis, because penetration isn’t always the most reliable way for your partner to have an orgasm. During heterosexual sex, clitoral stimulation (which has nothing to do with penis size) is by far the most reliable way to bring a woman to orgasm.

Talk to your partner about what she wants and be responsive to how she reaches orgasm. And remember that the techniques and patterns that bring women (and men) to orgasm can change over time. Her likes and sexual desires can vary depending on her mood, the time of day, or even at different parts of her menstrual cycle. Hormones play a huge role in sexual function. Just because something you did gave your partner an orgasm in the past doesn’t mean it’s what they want every time.

So…does size matter?

Remember, it’s OK to want to make your partner happy by trying different positions that increase penetration, but don’t focus on lack of penetration as a problem. It’s not. Sex is about connection and clitoral stimulation (in women) more than how deep you can go. Use positions that enhance what you’ve got communicate about what you both want in the bedroom, and you’ll be better in bed in no time.
