It’s safe to say if you have a penis size in the 5.1 to 5.5 inch range you are considered to have an average penis size.

Does Penis Size Vary with Race?

This a common question that is plagued with stereotypes. It is thought that black people have oversized penis while those of Asian decent have smaller penises. I have looked far and wide, but have not been able to find who or what started these stereotypes. So, are they true?

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of pills, pumps, creams and more that promise to increase penis size. Sadly, I consider them all ‘snake oil’ and you should not waste time, money and hope trying to find a solution. These companies use fear and perceived perception to sell what the scientific community considers ineffective.

Personally, I have tried a few different pills that were ineffective over a 6-month dose plan. I also bought a penis pump and while it does increase blood flow and girth of the penis for a short time it returns to normal just a few minutes after the device has been removed.
