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.)
