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:

  • 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” or “highly” satisfied with their penis size (and shape) were 10% more likely to be sexually active. The key to better sex is confidence and technique (as you’ll see below). It’s not about the size of your penis, because most guys are within an inch of each other. Seriously.

Average Penis Size

The average erect penis size is 5.16 inches long. And less than 2% of men have a penis larger that’s longer than 7 inches. But regardless of how those numbers make you feel, 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 5 sexual positions for deeper penetration:

  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 a smaller penis is ideal for anal sex (if your partner is into that). And that could be a big advantage for guys with a small penis. A 2009 National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior (NSSHB) study asked 1,931 adults about their most recent sexual encounters. The study found that women orgasmed:

  • 62% of the time from vaginal sex
  • 80% of the time from oral sex
  • 91% of the time from anal sex

How to Have Better Sex with Any Size Penis

Sex isn’t about the size of your penis, because penetration isn’t the most reliable way for your partner to have an orgasm. Clitoral stimulation (which has nothing to do with penis size) is by far the most reliable way to bring a woman to orgasm. And oral sex (cunnilingus) is the most reliable way to please a female partner.

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.

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 technique and positions like lack of penetration is a problem. It’s not. Sex is about connection and clitoral stimulation (in women) more so than how deep you can go. You are probably the only person on Earth that cares about the size of your penis. Use positions that enhance what you’ve got and communicate about what you both want in the bedroom, and you’ll be better in bed in no time.
