Re: does the penis shrink as you get older?

in my experience, yes, but not a lot, when it is flaccid. no, when it is erect.

Re: does the penis shrink as you get older?

It doesn't really shrink. Your body just doesn't fill it with as much blood as it once did. At the age of 63, mine isn't as big or as hard as it used to be. However, if I take 50 mg of Viagra then it is back to what it was years ago. The Viagra lets it fill with blood again. The difference with and w/o the Viagra is about 1/2 inch.

The other thing is that most of us tend to gain weight and fat as we age and therefore the greater fat hides more of the penis. Remember, the actual length is from the pubic bone, so if there is more fat covering the pubic bone, it will look shorter.
