Preoccupied  by physical appearances, we can become distracted from what matters most in life, and turn instead to worrying about some highly specific body part— our genitals — we might shut down entirely.

Evidence from one study men, and no one older than 40, found those who felt most satisfied in terms of male genital self-image had lower levels of sexual anxiety and better sexual functioning. And what about the self-doubting ones, those who disliked the appearance of their member? The researchers found the opposite to be true. 

Dissatisfaction led to anxiety, which led to sexual difficulties — a vicious cycle.So what’s a guy to do? .Panic is the anti-answer, son end that now. Like any situation, this one demands some straight up facts. The first and most important fact is to forget what you’ve seen in photographs, in movies, or on the web. Based on a sample of 1,661 guys, the average self-reported erect penis length is 5.6 inches. Technically, according to the Mayo Clinic, a penis is not even considered small unless it measures less than 3 inches when erect.If these scientific facts do not change your feelings you may also be comparing yourself to some unreality and suffering needlessly as a result. 

In fact, one 2005 study appearing in the journal Urology found exactly this to be the case. Of 92 patients who complained of a short penis, almost all of them had “overestimated the normal penile size,” noted the authors. More importantly, not one of these men actually had short penis.

 Enhancement is not a common request, but a fair number of patients have asked him, "What can I do to make my penis larger?" Still, “There isn’t a man alive who wouldn’t like a larger penis.”

The fact is verification is sadly lacking for nearly all of the male enhancement products on the market, while in many cases, there are definite warnings against these products. 

Specifically, most of the “thousands of [products] on the market today rely on the placebo effect.” The well-known placebo effect simply means that “about 40 percent of people, will report a positive result when given a useless product and told it will work. 

“When it comes to things sexual, the power of suggestion is overwhelmingly more than what goes on between your legs.Yet, according to science the penis consists of paired corpora cavernosa and a single corpus spongiosum, the size of which are determined genetically. 

Even surgical enhancement fails.“There’s no legitimate way to do it, the penis is not a static organ, it needs to move, and “there’s not a grafting material that’s suitable for that.” While there is one procedure that involves cutting the suspensory ligament, this only gives “an illusion of length. It doesn't actually extend it.

More importantly, surgical treatments, according to one recent study conducted at the University of Turin, Italy, are "characterized by a high risk of complications and unwanted outcomes." And such unwanted outcomes should be feared 

.However, there is one tiny hope by the an Italian study. When tested, the “traction method” of penis enhancement, the authors say, did result in growth, the traction method involves the phallus being placed in an extender and then stretched daily. 

One team of researchers quoted in the study reported average growth of 0.7 inches (flaccid) in participants who used the method for four to six hours each day over four months, the safe application of traction encourages tissue cells to divide and multiply, a process called cytokinesis. Over time and with great effort this will lead to tissue growth. 

If the size of your organ gives you anxiety, take a moment to step back and read all the available science and then proceed with relief and caution. In the end, you might do well by remembering these words.“It’s not women who have penis envy, it’s men, it’s never the sexual partners who complain about penis size, instead they ask him if the existing penis could be “attached to a sweeter, nicer guy.
