To be specific three posts come to mind:
According to my research this type of surgery is really popular in several places:
#2. United States (although I think this more about having more access to this type of surgery)
#3. China and India (super embarrassing for the men over there I guess)
#4. Germany (also known for its p*rn industry)
The average penis length (according to a 1996 study) is:
- unstretched, flaccid length 8.8cm (3.9 inches)
- stretched (pulled firmly out from the body), flaccid length 12.4cm (4.8 inches).
- erect penis, measured in the same way as above, is 12.9cm (5.2 inches).
Of course that doesn't stop Hollywood or the p*rn industry. They just shop around and find a surgeon who will do it anyway.
So if you're a man and you've been watching too much p*rn and feeling inadequate, then don't! That stuff you are watching is more fake than Pamela Anderson's breasts during the 1990s.
So lets pretend for a moment that you were a man who had an erect penis of only 3 inches. Honestly, you probably can't even get women to stick with you once they find out how small you are in bed. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad for the people who go through the whole dating process only to have their love interest dump them because "Your penis is too small!"
Okay, so following that assumption, how much does Penis Enlargement Surgery actually cost?
Answer - About $4,500 appears to be the average cost. It ranges between $4,000 and $5,000 for a lengthening surgery. (You can also have a girth enhancement for $2,000 and a skin graft done for another $5,000. Three surgeries totaling about $12,000 if you want to go all out.)
And while we are at, how much of an increase is actually possible?
Answer - 1/2 an inch to up to 2 inches, varies on the person.
Ogawd... Imagine the poor guy with a 2 inch penis who goes through the surgery, pays $5,000, and it only increases his length by 1/2 an inch?
I am sorry, but that is really funny (and sad). I am sorry I am not treating this with more sensitivity, but I honestly think that is really laughable.
Its not funny if Mr Shorty commits suicide afterwards, I admit, but I must admit as a somewhat macho guy I've been raised in a culture that makes fun of men with really short penises - and treats such things as inherently funny.
And I not alone. In South Korea they have parks filled with giant erect penis statues. I've included photos below.
I think the point I am trying to make here is that size does matter to men. Men want to be either average or above average. If they are less than average... or worse, pathetically small, then its just embarrassing for them.
And note also that men don't seem to care how beautiful their penis is. Size is pretty much all they care about. As if having a "big and beautiful penis" isn't something that women would desire. Goes nicely with "tall, dark and handsome".
