Consider the men you see everyday, walking down the street, at work, shopping, perhaps working in their yard down the street. If you were to see them without their clothes, half of them would have the same physical characteristics as the men on this page. They would have average (somewhere between 5 1/2 and 6 inches erect) or smaller (under 5 1/2 inches) penises.
Consider the advantages these men have … more accommodating oral sex and anal sex, no more sore jaws or uncomfortably stretched anuses. They bring a sensual flow and an obliging dimension to an intimate situation.
He knows some women have difficulty achieving an orgasm with a smaller penis, so he is usually thoughtful enough to give her a climax before he penetrates her.
Every man, so inclined, has a male soul-mate, a right match, or would like to have one. Half the male population is small to average, and since half the population prefers it this way, their relationships are mutually complimentary.
And there is the question of symmetry. Since beauty is in the eye of the beholder, opinions about a man’s penis is a subjective thing. Close to half of the male population that is attracted to other men either don’t care about the size of his lover’s penis, or prefer smaller ones. They see smaller penises as more practical and aesthetically appealing.
It’s a matter of proportion and symmetry. It’s a question of what’s practical and what isn’t. It involves applications that are more sublime than challenging. It has to do with aesthetics and perspectives. Whether you think it should or not, it can affect a man’s self-esteem. Though it stays hidden from the eyes of those around him, a man’s penis is a part of his body that defines his identity.
Take a look at the poll. It’s close to a draw. About half the male respondents say penis size doesn’t matter or they prefer a small size. A little higher ratio of the female respondents prefer a larger size, which stands to reason given their physical architecture. This tells me that any man with a smaller size can walk proudly on a nude beach or in a locker room.

Out in the sun without his clothes. He’s not hung like a stallion, nor is he concerned about the size of his penis. He’s simply enjoying being naked. Makes you wonder why days like this aren’t part of all of our lives.
What does he think about when he looks at himself in the mirror? What does he see? Does he think his penis is too small, wish he had a bigger one? Or does he like himself the way he is? Does he worry about what his new girlfriend or boyfriend will think when they first see him naked? Or is he confident they will marvel at his body as he most certainly will theirs?
So beauty, masculinity and sex appeal lie in the eye of the beholder. Since nearly half of the human population, according to the poll, finds men with smaller penises more sexually desirable, we can put aside the notion of “size matters”. Perhaps it does, but only for some. So if you look like the guys in this series, rest assured you can get naked with someone and enjoy your body.
Pictures of smaller men are by far the most popular images on Enlightened Male. The most popular Google keyword search to this site is small penises. Why? Obvious, isn’t it? These guys are appealing in part due to their penis size. After all, over half the men in the world are under six inches erect, which means they will generally be between one and three inches flaccid.
It’s also a popular topic because so many people prefer smaller penises, though the issue doesn’t usually matter to most when they are considering a potential companion. The pol below shows some interesting numbers on that.
Is it his character or his penis size that makes him attractive? Does he have to have a big penis to make him sexually appealing? There may be different schools of thought on the subject, but one thing is certain; Many men and women are more interested, more attracted to a man because of his thoughtfulness, his honesty, his sense of justice and his sens of humor than the size of his penis. In fact many of them simply don’t care about that, or actually prefer smaller penises. So take heart if yours is on the small side. Take your time to find the right person to appreciate it, along with who you are.
No one appreciates the beauty of the male body more than a sculptor. Sculptors understand the rhythm and harmony of muscle and bone, the ebb and flow of masculine curves and angles, the balance and symmetry of form and function. They understand the uniquely male nuances that compliment the sexual male creature. From the earliest days of Greece and Rome, sculptors have been giving their magnificent creations smaller penises than what is widely considered a more desirable penis size by today’s cultural standards, which has led to countless men agonizing over their smaller size. Far less emphasis is put on the magic of an emotional and physical sexual experience between a man and a woman, or two men; physical in the sense that the penis should play a smaller and relatively bittersweet role in human intimacy. (When the penis comes into play in it’s intended role, the encounter is just about over.) The “size matters” notion precludes the more dramatic part of a sexual encounter such as the visual aspects, the touching and exploring, and the unhurried uses of our fingers and tongues. The savoring of natural body smells, of taste and textures and visual pleasure. For those with the “size matters” mindset, they may be cheating themselves out of some very special relationships.
A different and more practical small penis perspective
An appreciation for male beauty is more than an appreciation for his physical appearance, his muscle tone, his broad shoulders or his penis size … it’s also his state-of-mind, his world view and perspectives. It has to do with his interest, his attitude in general, his self-esteem, his generosity, his optimism, his ambitions, his honesty and integrity, his sense of loyalty and his love of life. These are the components that make up the complete masculine package, and the components that form the foundation for his relationships. Far too often, men that have smaller than average size penises often believe their penis size defines their masculinity.
While large penises are fascinating and desirable in many ways, there can be a downside. There are circumstances where they can be impractical. Oral sex can be a jaw-tiring experience and considered less satisfy for both partners. Some women have smaller vaginas that will not accommodate a large penis. If the penis is too long it can ram her cervix and cause pain. Anal sex can be painful, even unthinkable.
Then again, many women prefer larger penises, especially those with larger diameters. It’s the way she was designed. In order to fully enjoy sexual intercourse, she wants to feel stretched and filled, which is not possible with a small penis. Or perhaps she has been indoctrinated to believe penis size defines a man’s masculinity, which is a sad and misguided state of affairs. Fact is, most women simply want to enjoy their men physically and emotionally. If sex to her man is nothing more than quickly getting her wet, then pushing his penis in, of course he’ll need a larger penis to give her sexual pleasure. But if her partner’s ambition to to make her feel desirable, to caress her and use his fingers, lips and tongue, to focus on her entire body instead of just her vagina, to give her an orgasm in any number of ways, then his penis size no longer matters.
A small penis perspective can be a little different for gay and bisexual men. Though many gay and bisexual men prefer large penises, many prefer a smaller size. A smaller penis makes for more comfortable anal sex and you can get all of your partner’s penis in your mouth, which can be more satisfying for both. Some men think small penises simply look better, that a large penis looks somewhat disproportionate to the overall man, a smaller guy with a huge penis for example. Given the diversity of penis sizes, various sizes not only make men more interesting to look at, but also provides their partners with their own preferences.
And preferences are what is important for guys that have a small penis to take into account. No, you’re not meant to be a porn star, nor are you meant to satisfy those that have a large size preference, but there are countless men and/or woman out there that will not only like what you have between your legs, but will be quite glad you have a small penis. The men on this page have small to average penises … can anyone deny how masculine, sexy or appealing they are?
So walk into the locker room shower with brimming self-confidence, or stroll a nude beach knowing more than a few will find you pleasant to look at and appealing. You are a magnificent fellow member in the brotherhood of man.
