The average penis size for male Filipinos is only 4.3 inches, which is not even close to the global average of 5.35 inches.
The question of whether penis size and girth play a factor in a man’s overall manhood is still debatable, but many argue that it does.
In a Brigada episode, host Bam Alegre discussed the issue with a man named Anton who said that his partner has been wanting something bigger from him.
Anton admitted that his penis is small and feels like he is less of a man relative to other males. The size also affects his performance in bed.
“Paminsan nagpaparinig siya na parang gusto niya malaki. Tapos may mga outing kayo, mas tinitingnan niya ‘yung sa kabila kasi mas malaki kaysa sa akin. Mga kasama mo like mga kaibigan ko sa gym, malalaki sa kanila. Parang awkward pala,” Anton told Bam.
“Nahihiya, yes, nahihiya ka talaga lalo tapos maliit lang, sasabihin niya ‘Parang ang liit-liit niyan.’ Parang gusto mo pero nahihiya ka kaya huwag na lang,” he added.
Another caller named Alvin said that his penis is normal in size but is lacking something which makes him insecure especially when doing it with someone new.
“Actually normal naman po ‘yung [ari] ko pero feel ko may kulang, parang hindi kumpleto eh,” Alvin said.
According to psychologist and sex and relationship therapist Dr. Rica Cruz, small penis syndrome is a real problem that can take a toll on a man’s confidence when it comes to sex.
Pornography also somehow sets the standard on what attributes men should possess to fully please a woman. And the number one quality is having a ridiculously huge sex organ. This may be true to certain extent but some women argue that skills are more important than size.
Men who suffer from the said syndrome do not have much options to change things. The best way to increase their penis size is to go under the knife. Altough a little expensive, penis enlargement surgery is common nowadays.
Another method is to implement penis enlargement exercises in an every day routine which advocates online say have changed their lives. A common exercise is jelqing — a penis workout where blood is purposely sent to the head of the organ with the use of both hands.
