In one of the most famous episodes of classic nineties sitcom Seinfeld, George Costanza is seen naked by Jerry's girlfriend, to whom he tries vainly to explain that because he’s just climbed out of cold water, he’s suffering penile "shrinkage.”

Penis Dysmorphia Is A Thing

Worrying about penis size can be a preoccupation for many men. In a worst-case scenario, it can lead to penis dysmorphia—which is much more than wishing your penis was bigger. Similar to generalized body dysmorphia, men with penis dysmorphia can become concerned with perceived (often small) flaws in their appearance―size, in this case―it can lead to avoiding sex altogether.

The fact is, size matters to men. It probably matters a lot more to men than women—and evidence backs this up.

How Do I Compare To The Average Penis Size?

A UCLA and Cal State Los Angeles report showed that 84% of women feel “very satisfied” with their man’s penis size. This means that seven out of every eight women feel their man is just fine, suggesting that size isn’t a big deal to a majority of women.

How To Measure Your Penis Size

No, you don’t cut it off and put it by a ruler.

Instead, when erect, measure length from the top of your penis where it connects to your pubic bone to the tip of your penis.

Is Penis Size Genetic?

So if your granddad is big, will you be? Well, it depends on whose side he’s on. Surprisingly—it turns out that you’re mostly likely to inherit your penis genetic material from the mother's side of the equation.

According to the current evidence, genes seem to play a role in the growth of your penis and other limbs, and come from the X chromosome.

Males (XY) have one X chromosome, while women (XX) have two.
