According to the Kinsey Institute, the average erect, adult penis size is 5 to 6 1/2 inches. “Showers” are the same size flaccid or erect. “Growers” are typically 1 – 4 inches flaccid but — when they’re hard — they grow. I’m a straight woman, and I really like penetration. So, here’s where the calculations come in. Go Ask Alice, Columbia University’s sexual health site, says the average vaginal depth is 3 to 4 inches. But, we know the cervix and uterus rise during arousal — thus lengthening the lady canal an inch or two. Get it? Whip out your calculators and rulers. For the straight folks: shove a 5 – 6.5 inch erect penis inside a 5 – 6.5 (or so) inch aroused vagina. It’s a near perfect match. Waaaay too many heterosexual men worry about penis size. For the most part, most guys are juuuust right.

it is not a banana

So, here’s the question, given the end result for “showers” and “growers” is roughly the same size (and fits comfortably into most vaginas), which would you rather — a “shower” who lets you know exactly what to expect or a “grower” who whips out a compact tool that surprises you with a BAM once it’s hard? My preference? I like both. Two of the biggest men I’ve ever been with were showers. They were long, thick, hard and delicious. That said, I’m also a fan of growers because I enjoy gawking at the physicality of arousal. Growers turn me on as I tug, squeeze, lick and suck them until they swell into big, hard, muscular fucking machines. What’s your preference? Or, if you’re one of the earth’s bedicked creatures, tell us: Which are you? A shower or a grower? (Psst! It’s okay. We’re all friends here; you can tell us. It will be our little secret.)

  1. Hmmm…definitely a grower here. When cold and completely flaccid, 1-1/2″ or so, not including foreskin. When very hard and very excited, 5″ and change along top and an inch or so longer along bottom. Erect width and girth: about 1-1/2″ and 4 to 4-1/2″. I’m okay with my length, but wouldn’t mind having an inch or so more circumference. My cock curves upward and has a large well shaped head. I’ve sometimes gotten compliments on it when a surprised woman first sees it fully erect. Size has never been an issue with a frisky and talented female. And since most of the time it is not in use, small when flaccid is a lot easier to pack around. Balls, of course, are another story.

    • Speaking as a gay man I am a grower, I’m about 2 inches long but when it matters hit just over 7 and being uncut. I prefer growers for they seem to have less confidence which means they really want to please you, where showers have too much and end up just focusing on sticking it in, nothing before or after. If I could choose whether to be showers I’d say no, one thing I’d like are bigger balls,

  2. I’m about 3-3.5 soft then I’m about 7.2-7.6 when hard. About 4 or 5 around.
    I personally wish was more of a shower. I like being a grower in terms of athletics, but would prefer to give more of a preview vs a surprise.
