The size of a guy's penis when flaccid is not a good indicator of the erect size. Even a penis that looks small when flaccid, can grow to be of very respectable size when erect. Conversely, men who have a penis that looks large when flaccid, generally don't see very much change in actual size when erect.

A "Shower" is a man who has a large flaccid penis, which stays around the same size when erect. A "Grower" is a men whose flaccid penis is small, but becomes much larger when erect. You can see an example of a grower at

That depends on whether you are measuring your penis while it is flaccid or erect. A flaccid penis would be about 3 inches normally. An erect penis is usually 4-6 inches.

Yes, the size of a flaccid penis does not correlate to the size of an erect penis. Also, overweight men tend to develop a "spare tire", or fat directly above the penis. This can cause a penis to look smaller than it is, especially a flaccid organ.

Yes. Men are very unique in the variance between flaccid penis size and erect size. Some men are called show-ers and others are called growers, in other words, some men have large flaccid penises which don't get much bigger when erect and others have very small penises that erect to much larger sizes.

Everyone is different in size. The average for an adult is 3-4" flaccid and 6" erect.

Too small, erect, could be around 3 if you are a full grown adult. This is not the flaccid size

Depending of your age.If you're 15-16-17-18Around 3'' to 4'' flaccid (non erect)4"-6" erect.

Usually penis size is measure when erect, and try penis lengthener exercises.

Either you are an extremely late bloomer, or your stuck with a small flaccid penis. In most cases flaccid penises erect longer then a big flaccid penis.

5 to 6 inches when erect. Could be as small as 1 inch when flaccid.

Of course not ! A small penis does not make you a freak. As a teenager he is still growing anyway. Boys and men have all different sizes and shapes of penises, some large and some small. The average adult size penis flaccid is just 3.5 inches, and erect it is 6 inches. Being the average you will get men with larger and men with smaller sizes.

You shouldn't be concerned with the size of your penis at 12 years old. Once you hit puberty you will have a growth spurt. The average size of the penis is 3.5" when flaccid and 5.5" when erect.

The average size of an adult erect penis is 6 to 7 inches so an erect length of 6 inches at 14 is probably longer than average for your age. There is little point in measuring your penis when it is flaccid (soft, limp, unerect) as the length can vary depending on changes in temperature and in your emotional state.

Not at all. The average adult penis size is 4'' flaccid and 6'' erect. It is not worth worrying about penis sizes at all. Not only that, a penis does not stop growing until you reach around 20-years-old, and after Puberty has ended.

Everyone has a different size penis so don't worry. If it works correctly then that is all that matters. The average size penis for an adult is 3-4 inches flaccid and 6 inches erect. Hope that makes you feel better !

There's no "exact" or "proper" penis size at 17. Usually our penises are fully grown at this later stage of puberty; however, late on-set puberty could mean your penis could still be developing. The average fully erect penis for adults is around 5.5 - 6.0 inches in length. Flaccid penis size varies greatlyfrom very small (which tend to be "growers") or could be very large in the flaccid state (called a "Show-er"). If your erect penis is anywhere in the range of 5-6.5 inches, your penis size will be among 90% of other guys having penis sizes in the same range as you. Only around 5% of other guys will have penises larger than your erect penis. Rest assured that you will likely never have a girl think your penis is in any way 'small' if you have a penis size in the median range; likely she will even think your penis is large & be quite excited and very horny to take it!

Yes, a penis that is three and a half inches when erect is pretty small...sorry.

under 3 inches when erect, don't worry about it when it's flaccid. Hey if you think its small, don't worry about it, it does not mean bad performance in bed. And dont hold off from sex because of it.

Whether its flaccid(not long and hard) or erect(long and hard) that's actually pretty big for a 10 year old so congrats and no it's not to small.

Under 3 inches when erect is considered small.

Penis size: What's normal, what's not?The fear that your penis looks too small or is too small to satisfy your partner during sex is a common fear. But a number of studies have shown that most men who think their penis is too small actually have normal-sized penises. It's highly unlikely your penis is outside of the normal range - and even if it is, it's still possible to have a satisfying sex life and father children.The average penis measures between 3 and 4 inches (7.6 to 10.2 centimeters) when it's not erect (flaccid) and between 5 and 7 (12.7 to 17.8) centimeters inches when erect.A penis is considered abnormally small only if it measures less than 3 inches (7.6cm) when erect, a condition called micropenis.

No not at all it's just below average the normal size flaccid is 3-4 inches.

Well you have a small penis. How big is it erect? Post on my page. I am 15 and mine erect is 7 inches.
