In a perfect world, your boyfriend or husband or fiancé or that fine boy you just hooked up with on Facebook would come with a designer dick: not too big and not too small—juuuust right for you.
But this is not a perfect world, and the truth is that size can sometimes be an issue. His penis and your vagina might not always match up perfectly.
Good news, gynecologist and author Lauren Streicher says that in general, most vaginas are able to fit all shapes and sizes of penises.
“Given appropriate arousal and lubrication, most vaginas can expand to fit whatever size of penis,” says Streicher.
It’s also pretty rare for women in their twenties and thirties to have problems accommodating more well-endowed men.
This would mean that the older you get, the more accommodating you become!
“It all becomes easier as you get older,” Streicher says.
That said, there are exceptions.
“Sometimes, it can seem like a penis is too big for a woman’s vagina. And if that’s the case, the important thing is that you need to figure out why it’s happening—because it can be solved,” says Streicher.
There are two big reasons that his man-parts can seem too large.
First, you may not be turned on enough.
Really. “If a woman is not aroused, it’s very possible that a penis may not go in,” says Streicher.
Or if it does, it could hurt or bleed or cause tearing. To fix this problem, be sure you are lubricated enough before he enters you. Ask him to engage in some serious foreplay before the main act, or use lubricant to get things going.
Another possibility is that certain medications could be making your vagina a little dehydrated—and you may not even realize it.
“Many low-dose birth control pills cause vaginal dryness, as well as antihistamines and even cancer treatments, like radiation,” says Streicher.
So if you continue to be dry down there—even if your guy is all about foreplay—check in with your doctor or gyno to see if one of the medications you are taking may be messing with your sex life.
The important thing to focus on here is that this is a solvable situation. As long as you follow the above advice, you are not doomed to a sex-less existence if your boyfriend’s penis seems too large.
“I have not once seen a patient who hasn’t been able to successfully have intercourse after taking the proper steps to fix the problem,” says Streicher.
A lot more women are even sharing their stories and fantasies about bigger male features.
Jackie, 36, says:
“Honestly, as a woman who has been with more than 20 men, I can’t trade anything with my man’s solid stuff.
“My first love had a thick penis; he felt amazing! Everyone after that felt “blah” to me. When we broke up, I simply could not find any man that met up to him in size or stature. Nothing satisfied me.
“His thickness made me feel something so satisfying that no one ever matched up to—until I found a man bigger!
“And ever since then, thicker has always been better, for me at least. I am a little over 100lbs and very tiny so you would not think that this is something desirable for a female.
“But it is the most satisfying sexual experience you can ever have and if you haven’t had the pleasure I say you truly haven’t had any pleasure at all!”
