Dear Hope: Am I the Right Size?
I’m a 15 year old guy. I have not dated yet, but I have a concern. You know when you see guys comparing their stuff in movies well the guys at my school do that too. When we are in the locker room after gym they are all talking about size and sex. I try to stay off to the side and change quickly, but I still think about it. They go on and on and make a big deal about it. I want to know how can I tell if I’m the right size? Can you still have sex if it’s too small? I’m too embarrassed to ask anyone else.
The talk you hear is just talk. Guys like discussing these types of things and most of it is exaggerated. Yes, you can still have sex no matter the size of your penis. There are no size requirements.
Everyone is different, so you cannot compare yourself to someone else. Some of the guys might be more developed than others. Everyone develops on their own schedule.
Don’t be embarrassed to talk to a dad, uncle, or someone you are close too. All guys have gone through puberty and I’m sure most have wondered about their size.
If you have any more concerns or you think there is a problem talk to your doctor. They are completely fine with you asking questions. No question freaks them out.
Until then don’t worry about your size, you are still growing. Plus, it’s no one’s business what size you are. The important thing is that you accept your own body.
Thank you for being brave and sending in your question.
