What are the normal penis dimensions?
There was always a huge debate on what are the normal penis dimensions and when a guy can say that he has a normal penis or a smaller one. Everyone should know and understand that a penis in erectile state is in between 12 and 17 cm.
It doesn’t matter that sometimes you can see in a gym or swimming pool locker-room a guy who has a very small penis because when it gets into erectile state it can become huge. This is something normal because of the disposition and conformation of the cavernosum bodies. There are guys that when the penis is relaxed it has much bigger dimensions when comparing to other guy’s relaxed penis, but when it changes into erectile state, the difference between these is not so obvious. In the same time, a penis which is very short in a flaccid state can become enormous into an erectile state.
There are situations in which a penis is more long than it’s thick and viceversa.
As long as the length in erectile state starts from 12 cm and the girth starts from 8, we have to do with a normal penis.
There is the so-called “locker room syndrome” which means that a guy is ashamed of his penis when he needs to undress or take a shower in a locker room because the penis in a flaccid state is very small. Another situation is when he’s at the beach and there seems to be nothing in his bathing suit. In these situations, just a girth enhancement can solve the problem easily, with no surgery.
