Male Sexual dysfunction
As men, our relationship with our sexuality is a complicated affair related to our sense of power and self. It is almost inconceivable to women how someone’s sexuality could determine his sense of self, worth, esteem and power. It so much that almost every decade something stronger or a perceived more efficacious drug is produced to enhance phallus size, performance and lasting time etc.
In reality for most men, life is a dick-wagging contest, a competition played out in the boardroom, bedroom and on the playing field. The guy with the bigger organ proudly asserts his entitlement with authority while the guy with the smaller ones cower without saying a word just as it plays out in the animal kingdom bulling others and acting like the real life superman!
Then what is all this fuss about the male sexual organ popularly referred to as penis or phallus. The human penis is a soft tissue intromittent organ which additionally serves as urinal duct. When soft, it is usually averaged between 6 and 13 centimetres long. An erect one is usually somewhere between 10.7 – 19.1 centimetres long. The average is about 12 centimetres. Smaller penises grow more in size when they become erect compared to large penises. If you want to measure your penis, do it when it’s erect, on the top side – the side closest to your belly. If you have a bigger penis, it doesn’t make you a better lover, and it doesn’t mean you’ll have better sex. Girls or women find foreplay, affection and relationship satisfaction as important as their partner’s penis size. A Micropenis is a penis that measure less than 2.75 inches/ 7cm in length when erect. It happens if the level of the male hormone testosterone is too low when the baby is developing in the womb. Most men who are worried they have a micropenis and who see a doctor don’t actually have the condition.
Note: Neither age nor size of the flaccid penis accurately predicts erectile length or better sexual life.
Psychological problems associated with Penis
There isn’t a man who hasn’t compared the size of his penis to other men in the locker room or at the urinal, a sizing-up that leads to either a prideful smile or a sense of inadequacy. It’s the shame, that’s coined a catch phrase: “I’m a grower, not a shower.” How often have men worried if they are going to measure up, literally, when getting naked with a new partner, start wondering if going to measure up with partner’s previous lovers? Will a grin or smirk greet the bared private part? Isn’t there always that moment of anxiety when men wonder has my partner seen a bigger one? There are a few reasons for these problems guys have with their penises.
1) Into adolescence, popular films and shows like “Hung”, “Lekki wives” and “Sex in the City,” where attractive women vocalize their preferences for well-endowed men, doesn’t alleviate the anxiety.
2)Watching pornography – as do most men – can set off alarm bells. The average human penis is about six inches long, but porn stars set the gold standard higher, at a whopping eight-plus inches.
There are a few psychological problems associated with penis.
* Penis Envy– supposed envy of the male’s possession of a penis. Here it is the guy admiring and desiring the penis of a friend or fellow male.
* low self-esteem– he is not proud of himself, avoids sports or events where he would have to be on shorts.
* poor body imaging– he feels his penis is too small and therefore starts checking it, obsessing over it and thinking of ways to change the length or shape
* Male sexual dysfunction- There are problems either with the physiological, psychological or social distress attached to the male sexuality. This could be fear of satisfaction for the partner, anxiety on the size, lack of desire, loss of turgidity, premature ejaculation, feels he has a small size and would not last long and this can lead to him not having proper erection or premature ejaculation where he come before 30 seconds to 50 seconds.
The most common male sexual dysfunction: premature ejaculation
Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than he or his partner would like. Premature ejaculation is also uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration. Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint. Estimates vary, but as many as 1 out of 3 men say they experience this problem at some time. As long as it happens infrequently, it’s not cause for concern. The average time from the beginning of intercourse to ejaculation is about five minutes.
Premature ejaculation can be classified as lifelong (primary) or acquired (secondary).
1. Lifelong premature ejaculation occurs all or nearly all of the time beginning with your first sexual encounters.
2. Acquired premature ejaculation has the same symptoms but develops after you’ve had previous sexual experiences without ejaculatory problems.
Many men feel that they have symptoms of premature ejaculation, but the symptoms do not meet the diagnostic criteria for premature ejaculation. Instead these may have natural variable premature ejaculation, which is characterized by periods of rapid ejaculation as well as periods of normal ejaculation.
