You've probably assumed that when it comes to penis size, bigger is better. Yet now's the time to be proved wrong. Sure, there are many perks to having a large penis (can't deny that one), but there are always several ways that less endowed men can use their small members to give you oh-so-much pleasure. Certain positions might actually be easier and more enjoyable when your guy's on the smaller end, giving him better clitoral access, and you might feel more naturally lubricated without the excess friction. Here are a few reasons a guy with a little penis can give you some huge rewards.
Anal Sex Is a Hell of a Lot Easier
"For obvious reasons, anal sex is less scary to try and more comfortable to enjoy with a man with a smaller penis," says Dr. Jennifer Landa, MD, OB-GYN, and chief medical officer at BodyLogicMD, to POPSUGAR. You still want to make sure to get adequate lubrication while engaging in anal sex, though, so lube is super helpful here. "Having anal sex with a man with a larger penis can be more intimidating and more uncomfortable," she says.
He Makes Up For It in Other Sexy Ways
"Many women say that men with smaller penises have become experts in other areas, such as using their hands and mouths, to please and satisfy," she says. Your partner will still be able to rock your world with his penis (it's still a penis, after all), but he can also take sex to the next level with some awesome additions.
"Not that it's all about the orgasm, however it's important to note that only 30 percent of women can orgasm from penetration alone, so that's why I always say foreplay is not just a suggestion — it's a requirement," adds Emily Morse, a sexologist and the host and founder of the Sex With Emily podcast, to POPSUGAR.
He Knows What CAT Is
No, not like the animal. "Many men with smaller penises have learned the coital alignment technique (CAT), in which he aligns his pubic bone with her mons pubis and specifically her clitoris," she says. "In this way it's possible to stimulate the clitoris while having intercourse," she explains. This is one of the most common ways for women to achieve orgasm during intercourse, so it's definitely a huge perk.
It Can Keep You Better Lubricated
A big penis can be intense, and it can often dry you up faster. This is especially true as you get older. "For women with hormonal changes in perimenopause and menopause, a smaller penis can be beneficial because these women tend to have less lubrication and the cells of the vagina actually shrink in menopause, which can make accommodating a larger penis more difficult," Landa adds.
Sex Might Not Be as Painful
Sometimes a large penis can make for a lot of pain. "I've had patients complain about their partners with larger penises — that it can be difficult to work up to enough foreplay to accommodate their partner with a larger penis. They talk about having to ease into it and mention that they sometimes even have pain," she says.
"I get so many more questions about what to do when their partner is on the larger side, especially because it can be painful and potentially prohibit sex from happening," adds Morse.
In fact, usually complaints about pain are rare for smaller guys. "I've never had a patient complain about a partner with a small penis. They don't present the same challenges, and a small penis will never cause pain," Landa explains. The most sensitive part of the vagina is the lower part, and a man with a smaller penis will have no problem reaching it. He can cause all of the pleasure without all the length.
Oral Sex Is Easier . . . For You
Hells yeah. "Many women have reported that it is way easier to perform oral sex on a man with a smaller penis because they don't have trouble fitting in their mouth if they have a small mouth, and they don't feel like they're going to gag, as sometimes women do with men with larger penises," she says. No way to argue with that.
