    21 YEARS OLD

    I will soon be 21 years old..

    Couple of questions.

    When I was 14/15 my penis/testicles enlarged a little, but they quit growing and I don't believe the organ completely finished growing..

    Now that I am almost 21 years old, my penis is maybe 2.5 inches flaccid and 5.5 inches erect. My testicles are still rather small. I am wondering if they will continue to grow (wishing and hoping) and if I should be going to see a Urologist to see what is going one/ what can be done!?

    Thank you for any information or answers you can provide.

    You might have to accept that you have finished growing. Despite what you might think, you're actually right around average. If you're experiencing pain, or something doesn't feel right, then by all means check in with your doctor...otherwise the growth spurt in your teens was most likely part of puberty as your sex organs matured, and now that you've reached 21, the process is likely complete.

    Please DON'T stress about your size. Technique is always more important, and there's nothing wrong with your size or length. Considering the average vagina is 3-4 inches of highly elastic flesh, you'll still fill any prospective partner nicely. If you care about your partner's pleasure & know how to use your package, you'll have no problems :)

    I am 62 years old, about the same dimensions as yourself, and still waiting to grow ...


    Although it could be partially due to my choice of partners (manners, tact, etc.), I have not had one woman complain about my size.

    Not saying I'm a great lover, but I try.

    Also for your consideration, I've read that guys with heavy equipment are more likely to have erectile disfunction when they get to, ahem, my age.

    i'm a 41 YO female, happily married, and while my husband is above average, he hurts me lots of times: i think your penis is fine, and like everyone elses, you are 90% like other men,, i have never had a too small penis, BUT the large ones make me want to turn and run out the door,, best wishes to you!

    Your penis size is average. I wouldn't worry about it.
    Technique is what counts FAR more.

    I also have small testicles, but as long as they work (You get erections, can ejaculate) that is all that counts.
    Besides large testicles just get in the way.

    I'd rather have an average penis and small testicles than the other way round. I'm sure you (and most men on the board) will agree with me.

    If you really are worried about it, go and see your doctor. It won't do any harm and will put your mind at ease. I'm sure (he or she) will tell you what everyone is telling you on the forum.
