How Small is Too Small for a Woman (Does Size Matter)?

Social media and movies would have you believe that penis size means everything to a woman. Men constantly worry about their penis not being big enough or being made fun of for the size of it. This begs the question, how small is too small for a woman?

In reality, the size of your penis does not make a difference to women. It’s more important that you know how to use it and the sex positions that will give a woman the most pleasure.

In this article, we will cover everything that you need to know about size and what positions to use if you have an average or small-sized penis.

What is an Average Size For a Penis?

The average penis size is surprisingly small. The average male will have a penis in the range of 4.7 to 6.3 inches. This means that the average penis size is right around 5 inches.

To put this in perspective, the average depth of a woman’s vagina is 3.77 inches. That means that the average size penis is perfect for the average-sized vagina. Anything much bigger than the average size could actually be painful.

How Small is Too Small for a Woman?

If you are under the average length, you may be wondering how small is considered too small? The answer may surprise you. It can’t be too small!

Guys’ orgasms work much differently than womens’. Males feel pleasure when there is friction along the shaft of their penis. Most women orgasm because of clitoral stimulation.

The clitoris typically only extends about an inch or two into the vaginal canal. As long as you are hitting the clitoris, you are stimulating over 8,000 nerve endings.

In other words, as long as your penis is at least an inch long while it’s erect, then you are able to give a girl an orgasm during sex.

Do Woman Care About Size?

Most women don’t care about the size of their penis during sex. As long as you know how to sexually stimulate the woman it won’t make a difference.

However, there are two instances where size does matter. When sending nudes and when it’s too big.

Sending Nudes with an Average or Small Penis

The purpose of a nude is to attract someone through visual stimulation. Although the size of your penis doesn’t really matter during sex, an image of a small penis can be underwhelming.

Therefore, guys with smaller penises should try to avoid sending nudes. At least prior to hooking up with someone, before the girl has the opportunity to see what you can do in person.

When It’s Too Large

Guys with big penises often boast about the size of their manhood, but in reality, anything larger than the average size penis can be too big.

As we mentioned earlier in the article, the average depth of a vagina is typically about 3 inches. If a guy is trying to fit a 10 inch or foot-long penis in a 3-inch space, it’s going to be painful for the girl.

Contrary to popular belief an oversized penis is actually a disadvantage when it comes to the bedroom because you really have to be careful with how deep you are going.

How Rare are Small Penises?

A micro-penis is when a penis is less than 2¾ inches when erect. Only 1% of the male population has a penis that is this small. If you are one of the rare few who have this small of a penis, revel in your uniqueness, because you are truly rare!

Does Girth Matter?

Girth is actually more important than the overall length of the penis. Therefore, a girthy penis is a huge asset in the bedroom.

As we mentioned earlier, women get most of their sexual stimulation from their clitoris, which is only about 1 to 2 inches inside of their vaginal cavity.

A penis with more girth will stretch the vagina and hit more nerve endings. This feels much better for women than a long penis hitting the back of their vaginal cavity.

Does Circumcision Effect Size?

A circumcised penis is one where the foreskin of the penis has been cut off. This is typically for health or religious reasons.

Circumcision will not affect the overall length of your penis. However, a circumcised penis may look smaller than an uncircumcised penis.

When Will My Penis Stop Growing?

If you’re worried about your penis being too small you might still have time for growth. For the average male, the most rapid growth occurs between the ages of 12 and 16.

Most penises are done growing between the age of 18 and 21.

Can I Make My Penis Bigger?

There is no way to effectively increase the size of your penis. Some common methods for increasing penis size include:

  • Jelqing (Penis Stretching)
  • Penis Weights
  • Surgery
  • Vacuum penis pumps
  • Supplements creams

Most doctors agree that all of the above-listed methods will not make a noticeable difference. You are more likely to hurt or injure yourself than actually increase your penis size.

If you are truly worried about how your penis looks, try altering other aspects of your body. Being overweight or having a large amount of pubic hair can make your penis look smaller.

Best Sex Positions for Guys with Small Penises

sex positions 101

If you have an average or small-sized penis and are worried about pleasuring your woman there are a few sex positions that can help give you an edge.

As a general rule, you want to use a position that will allow you to use the entire length of your shaft. This will feel great to her and to you. Here are some positions that allow you to do this.

Doggie Style

Doggie style is when the woman gets on her forearms and knees with her butt lifted in the air. The guy then goes to her butt and can either stand or kneel behind her.

This position allows for great control of the speed and direction of your penis. It’s also really easy to fully insert your entire penis.


In order to get into this position, the guy sits on the edge of the bed. The girl, facing towards the guy, then sits in his lap. She should wrap her legs around your waist and hands around your head.

This position works really well for small penises because it’s more about wiggling than going in and out. Since it’s hard to lift a girl up and down in this position, you mostly just stay inserted. Every movement of your penis will be stimulating her clitoris and feel great to her.

The Little Dipper

For this position, the guy should lay fully extended with their feet on the floor. The girl should then either use the bed or a chair to put themselves over top of the male’s body forming a t-shape. Both partners should lean backward for maximum penetration.

This is a great position for guys with small penises because both partners are using their hands to get as deep as possible.

The Cowgirl

This is where the guy lays flat on the bed and the girl sits on top of him.

The cowgirl works well because the girl is using her entire body weight to get maximum penetration. As an added bonus, girls do most of the work in this position, so they can maneuver their bodies to whatever feels good to them.

Stand and Deliver (The Bicycle)

The stand and deliver, or bicycle, is when the girl lies flat on the bed with her butt up to the edge of the bed. The guy then stands at the edge of the bed and inserts while standing.

This is another great position for extremely deep penetration. Additionally, you can use your hands to help rub the other side of her vagina.

The G-Whiz

This position requires a little bit of flexibility but also allows for the deepest penetration. The girl lays flat on the bed with her legs up in the air. The guy then presses up against her with his knees up against her butt.

This position really allows guys on the smaller side to get deep. For extra leverage, you can pull her legs against your shoulders.

The Spork

This is a great alternative position if the girl isn’t flexible enough to do the G-Whiz. The woman extends one leg fully and then lifts one leg in the air. The guy goes in between the woman’s legs.

The benefit of this position is that it allows the guy to use the lifted leg for leverage, but doesn’t require the woman to lift both legs fully in the air.

The Flatiron

This is similar to doggy style, but the girl lies completely flat instead of being on her hands and forearms.

This allows for deep penetration, but it can also help if you don’t have a very girthy penis. The girls’ hips are in a closed position, which allows for more friction and more pleasure.

Can a Woman be Too Loose?

You often hear criticism about the size of a guy’s penises, but is it possible that some women have vaginas that are just too loose for a normal penis size?

Vaginas are made out of elastic tissue. They are able to stretch, but then eventually return back to their normal shape.

After having a baby or taking on an exceptionally large penis a vagina can take a few days to return to its normal shape. However, as a general rule, a woman’s vagina won’t ever be too loose.

That being said, some women can naturally have a deeper vaginal cavity. A woman with a deeper vagina cavity may prefer a man with a longer penis.

Final Thoughts

As a guy, you should never worry about the size of your penis. While some women may prefer a guy with a bigger Johnson, its size has little impact on the quality of sex.

What is more important is that you find sexual positions that help you use your penis to the best of your ability and that are pleasurable for both you and your partner.

Sex is supposed to be a fun and enjoyable activity. Therefore, it’s more important to worry about enjoying yourself and pleasuring your partner, than the actual size of your package.
