Woman seeking advice about boyfriend's penis size

Thank goodness my boyfriend doesn't read these boards!
Ok, well, for those guys who don't mind advising, thanks so much --
My better half is 49 years young and we've been together 2 years.
Thing is, I'm not sure whether to be concerned about his penis size, or not. He says when he was younger, it was 6 inches when aroused. But now it's only about 3.5 to 4 inches when aroused. He recognises he's small, but I'm wondering if there might be a real medical problem, or whether it's just shrinkage due to age?
Any ideas?

Re: Woman seeking advice about boyfriend's penis size

Has he put on weight? Body fat in the pubic area will hide some of the penis's length.

Hi Zagreus, thanks for replying. Yes, he has put on a little weight in his 40's and now has a little belly on him but he doesn't just appear smaller, he actually IS smaller. I don't know if this is normal, or something to be concerned about.

Re: Woman seeking advice about boyfriend's penis size

If his blood circulation has been imparied, it could reduce both the size and hardness of erection. As was also pointed out, if he is overweight, the pelvic fat pad can reduce the apparent length by several inches. Especially if he is not real firm and if his girth has been reduced, he should she a doctor for a full checkup, telling the doctor about his significantly reduced size. Some loss of size with advancing age is normal, but this seems excessive. Perhaps something like Viagra will help but, if he is geting some clogged arteries, he may need to be on special drugs and a low fat diet. I think the important thing to rule out by having a physical is potential heart disease.

Re: Woman seeking advice about boyfriend's penis size

I think I read somewhere that the average size is about 4 inches. Since you've only been with him for 2 years, you never experienced the 6 inches he speaks of. Maybe it's his story because he's feeling inadequate in the size department. If you are both satisfied, size shouldn't matter. "IF" there's evidence that it continues to be getting smaller, then you've got a medical problem. All guys are worried about their size, the same way women are concerned about the size of their anatomy.

Re: Woman seeking advice about boyfriend's penis size

Thanks for your replies, guys. I kind of felt like I was intruding on the mens board.
Well, he is a fit and active man and eats very sensibly and healthily, usually. He is currently trying to lose his little belly he's gained, so I guess we shall see if losing weight makes any difference. He is very aware he's got smaller "down there", so maybe it's turned into a bit of a psychological thing for him, as well, if he perhaps feels a bit inadequate. (Which he really isn't.) He always makes jokes about himself and his size. Maybe it plays on his mind more than he likes to let on..

Re: Woman seeking advice about boyfriend's penis size

I always thought it was the technique and not the size of the manhood that was the determination factor of pleasure vs unsatisfied. I doubt there has been a shrinking issue but just an altered perception. Men come in all shapes and sizes, it is best to just be satisified with what you have rather than dwell on how big or firm it could or should be just for your own sake.

Re: Woman seeking advice about boyfriend's penis size

Well a quick way to "look" bigger down there is to shave off the hair, but that is his choise

Re: Woman seeking advice about boyfriend's penis size

Well i don't know, he swears he was 6 inches when younger, so I don't know what could have happened to the missing 2.5 to 3 inches. I'm more inclined to think about the weight gain factor at present, as I know he isn't as trim as he once was.
But what I've found out so far on here, is losing that much in length isn't normal, which was what I wondered.

Keil.. funny you mention the shaving thing, as we have joked about doing that before, to make him appear bigger.

Daphnee.. He fully accepts the way he is and makes out like it's not a worry for him, although I know he would rather have a bit more down there.. like.. another 3 inches. It's ok saying size doesn't matter, but to most, it does, whether they admit to it or not.

Re: Woman seeking advice about boyfriend's penis size

Lostinreality.. thanks, i hadn't thought of that. Also, it takes him a long long time before he can ejaculate, during sex. I mean we're talking well over an hour. I'm wondering if this now could be connected to the size issue and, as you suggested, hormone levels.

Re: Woman seeking advice about boyfriend's penis size

I read in some men's health book that dropping thirty pounds can add 1.5 to 2 inches to the length -- and I know when I dropped about 60 lbs several years ago I was significantly longer. I think weight could well be the issue here -- ain't middle age grand?

Re: Woman seeking advice about boyfriend's penis size

well, something's clearly impeding on his health. when you two are making luv, is he truly erect? or would you say there's a lack of bloodflow and he seems semi-erect?

perhaps he has a vice that you're not aware of? liquor/tobacco/junk food/etc. some ppl are more sens'tive to such obstacles.

definitely talk to him about seeing a doctor. losing 2 inches of length isn't normal in any scenario outside of marrying a Bobbit.
