Hopefully, every man reading this feels good about himself and about his body - and about his member. Being in good health and good male organ health can make a big difference in a man’s sensual outlook - but sometimes there can be factors that undermine a perfectly healthy man feeling good about himself sensually. For example, take male organ size. Our culture places an absurd importance on something that is essentially a matter of genetics and that which has little to do ultimately with how satisfactory a man is in bed. Often a man may be victimized by body dysmorphic disorder, and this dysmorphia may be centralized around his male organ size - to his detriment. |
Not measuring up
When a man has dysmorphia related to his male organ size, it means that he has an obsessive idea that his male organ size is inappropriate - most often, too small. (There are some cases in which a man experiences his member as being far too large, but this kind of dysmorphia is much rarer.) While it is very possible for someone with a genuinely small manhood to have dysmorphia, it seems to occur more often in men whose male organ size is perfectly normal, if not more than normal.
In either case, individuals are placing an excessive importance on male organ size. With the prevalence and easy availability of adult material, more and more men (and women) have the opportunity to be exposed to videos in which the male performers are chosen at least partially due to the above-average size of their manhood.
The fact is that the average tumescent male organ size is about 5.1 inches, and the range of "normal" tumescent male organ sizes generally runs from about 4 inches to about 6 inches. (However, many men with tumescent members smaller than 3 inches are able to sensually satisfy their partners.) Those with a manhood larger than 6 inches are the exception rather than the rule, no matter how it appears in adult material.
So what happens when a man has dysmorphia where his male organ size is concerned? There are any number of issues that can arise:
- Depression and/or anxiety. Body dysmorphic disorder is recognized as a mental health illness, and many people who suffer from it experience such corollary issues as depression or anxiety. This can impact not only their sensual life but their day-to-day life as well, causing them to feel fatigued, irritable, unmotivated, and unhappy.
- Performance issues. Dysmorphia may contribute to tumescence issues as well. For example, a man may experience tumescence dysfunction, due to worries that he just doesn’t measure up as a man due to his male organ size. Anxiety about performing adequately may cause him to become nervous during coupling and to release seed early.
- Relationship problems. A man with dysmorphia may avoid sensual contact, afraid that he will not be able to satisfy a partner. He may refrain from dating from fears or rejection due to his perceived inadequate male organ size, or he may need to constantly be reassured by a partner that his male organ size is acceptable.
Too often, men with dysmorphia about male organ size try to find ways to enlarge their member. This may lead them to try "sham" treatments that don’t work. Some treatments, in fact, may be dangerous. Rather than taking this path, a man is advised to seek help from a mental health professional who can work with him to come to have a more balanced and realistic perception of his male organ size.
Dysmorphia can also distract a man from taking proper care of his manhood, which is crucial regardless of male organ size. Regular application of a first-rate male organ health oil (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help. The most appropriate oils will include both L-arginine and L-carnitine. The former helps male organ blood vessels to become receptive to increased blood flow. The latter has neuroprotective properties that help the member retain its delicate sensitivity, which impacts sensual pleasure.
