Take a look in any gym men’s locker room or shower, and the variation in penis size one encounters is significant. Of course, when talking penis size, most men are more concerned with the size of their equipment when erect than when flaccid, as it is more apt to be in a locker room. But even when comparing tumescent members, the differences can be startling. And while a larger penis size does not impact penis health and is less important in performance than individual skill, there can be “tricks” that may need to be considered if one has a penis of special dimensions. For example, when the penis is an extra wide model, its owner and potential users may need to make a few allowances.
How wide is wide?
Like beauty, size – including width – is often in the eye of the beholder. However, the average erect penis circumference is somewhere around 4 ½ inches, so a penis of 5″ or more in circumference can probably safely be considered wide. It’s also worthwhile pointing out that penis girth can vary from one end to another. Often a man may have a “mushroom head,” in which the glans is considerably wider than the shaft of the penis. And in some men, the shaft may be wider at the base or somewhere in the middle.
What to do
The main concern about an especially wide penis, of course, is whether it will fit into a waiting orifice – and whether penetrating that orifice will cause pain. In general, the vagina is a very stretchable and accommodating place in which to place a penis; it can stretch to accept a surprisingly wide penis. Depending upon the individual, there may be less flexibility when it comes to the mouth or to the anus. However, these tips are generally applicable.
Don’t skimp on lubrication. Even the opening with the most “give” will be more receptive if both it and the penis in question are appropriately lubricated. Nature provides some lubrication on its own, of course, but it’s advisable to help Nature along with a good helping of lube-from-a-tube. Don’t be afraid of going a little overboard – especially if anal penetration is involved – as it’s better to have too much than too little. And if the sexual encounter lasts for an extended period of time, re-lubricating may be necessary.
Don’t forget foreplay. Also key: no matter how excited the owner of an extra-wide may be, he needs to take his time and make sure his partner is properly prepared. Kissing, caressing, playing with nipples, orally engaging her vagina – whatever form of foreplay she likes, he needs to engage in it for an appropriate amount of time.
Get positioned. Let the partner choose what position or positions to try. If she is in charge, she will better be able to guide insertions and stop if she experiences any pain. For many couples, woman-on-top variations work the best; many also find that some positions work better for initial insertion, but others are better for the continued thrusting.
Listen. First and foremost and above all – a man needs to listen to his bedmate. If they are experiencing any discomfort, he needs to stop what he is currently doing and find out if she wants him to withdraw or to continue – or to try something else. This should be the plan even for men who do not have an extra wide or long penis size, of course.
A wide penis size may make some partners anxious at first, but with a little effort, most couples can learn to adjust. It helps if the penis is in good shape, so guys must use a first class penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Well hydrated penis skin helps with lubrication issues, so find a crème with moisturizers like shea butter and vitamin E. The chosen crème should also include vitamin D3, which has proven benefits in fighting disease and supporting healthy cellular function.
