A man’s sexual function is doomed to decline over age. Testosterone levels slowly fall, and it eventually takes more effort to stimulate him than it did previously. Even once, he is aroused, it takes longer for him to be able to achieve orgasm and an erection. The quality and quantity of the man’s sperm also will decline over time. Impotence or Erectile Dysfunction occurs at the ages of forty to seventy. Men also tend to experience their ability to urine gradually decline. Over time, a man’s urine stream will weaken due to his bladder muscles weakening over time. This weakening of the bladder muscles can also be accompanied by an increased enlargement of the prostate gland.
Recent research has confirmed men’s worst nightmare. A penis will change from his prime into his old age. Changes to his penis will include its appearance, penis size, curvature, and sensitivity.
Penis Appearance. Two main changes occur to a man’s penis over time. The penis’s head (or the glans) will gradually lose hits purplish color due to the reduced flow of blood coming from the heart to the penis. The second change is a gradual pubic hair loss. “A man’s penis will gradually revert back to its prepubertal state and he will slowly lose his hair until he goes bald” states Irwin Goldstein, The Journal of Sexual Medicine editor and director of sexual medicine at Alvarado Hospital.
Penis Size. As a man grows older, it is quite common for him to begin to gain weight over time. The fat that heaps up on the abdomen can cause the illusion of shrinkage of penis over time. Ira Sharlip, urology professor at the California University has dealt with many of these cases in which shrinkage appears to be in case when actuality large prepubic fat pads create the illusion of a decrease in penis size.
The penis also is likely to undergo a process when it actually does reduce in size. While the illusion can be reversible, this process is actually irreversible. The thickness and length of the penis is affected. Goldstein has experienced patients who were once six inches long at the time they were in their thirties and are now approximately five or five and a half inches. These men are usually in their sixties or seventies.
There are two mechanisms in place, which can cause shrinking of the penis. The first cause of penis shrinkage is a gradual deposition of some substances like fats (or plaques) that exist within the arteries within the penis. This process of atherosclerosis can impair blood flow to the penis. It will also eventually cause blockages to the coronary arteries and can cause the person to experience heart attacks.
Penis Curvature. Penile scar tissue can accumulate over time. If this tissue unevenly accumulates, a condition referred as Peyronie’s disease can occur. This is mostly common during a man’s middle age. This issue can make sexual intercourse difficult and can cause erections to become painful. This type of curvature can also cause curvature.
Penis Sensitivity. There have been hundreds of studies that have revealed that penis has become much less sensitive over time. This fact actually makes it hard for a man to be able to achieve and erection. Even if the man can get himself to become erect, having an orgasm also becomes a challenge. It is still unknown whether or not a lack of penis sensitivity can cause orgasms to become less pleasurable.
If you’re really worried about your penis size, being overweight could be the main issue. The famous Dr. Mehmet Oz has stated that for every fifteen pounds of fat lost, a man could cause his penis to be perceived as having gained at least an inch in penis length.
Are you actually smaller in size if you’re fatter? Here are the facts:
The average man’s penis is approximately three inches long when flaccid. If he is any fatter, the base of his abdomen can cover up the foundation of his shaft. This can cause the appearance of having a smaller penis. Decreasing your abdomen size can enable more of your penis to be viewed, therefore giving “length” to the penis.
This creates the concept of the penis to body weight ratio. Most skinny men are thought of as having longer or large penises. This may simply be due to their weight rather than the actual size of their penis. Skinner men are able to expose the full length of their shaft and they are also thinner, making their appendage seem larger than it really is. Penises come in all different shapes and sizes, similar to breasts on women. If you are uncomfortable you’re your size, give weight loss a try.
