What Are the Advantages of a Thick Penis

Much is said about penis size, but the taboos of our society make it difficult to talk about. Some men desire a thick penis and look to the internet for help with enlargement. They may think their penis isn't thick or long enough to satisfy their partner. Others worry that their penis is too thick. While the stereotype is that bigger is always better, having a thick penis has its own considerations. The truth is that there are certain pros and cons to having a thick penis. Some of this has to do with sex, but there are also other personal issues which might be aroused by having a thick penis.

oneHOWTO looks into what are the advantages of having a thick penis. In doing so, we can help people know that having a thick penis doesn't mean you have a problem. In fact, there can be many benefits to enjoy.

What size is considered a thick penis?

Concern about penis size has become an aesthetic aspect that often determines how a man feels in bed, in spite of the fact that women constantly tell guys that when dealing with normal sized penises, there is little difference between 5 or 6 inches (12 or 15 centimeters).

Instead, what is important is the way in which it is used and its thickness. These are two factors that influence pleasure, because when it comes to size, girls only perceive sensations in the first 4 inches of the vagina (10 centimeters), so a normal penis length is enough, but there are advantages to having a thick penis.

To know the size of a thick penis, we need to know how thick is the average penis. By finding this out, we can easily work out what is above average in terms of penis thickness. It's important to remember that girth isn't everything. Some men may have a long thin penis, but it still works well for their partner. Others may have a penis that is long and thick, something many men think they desire.

The average girth is 5.3 in, so if your penis has a wider girth than this, then you are qualified as having a thick penis. If you don't know how to measure it you can read this article. It is important to remember that the girth or thickness of the penis is measured by circumference, not diameter. This means the 5.3" of an average sized human penis is not the distance across, but the distance around the circumference.

Disadvantages of having a thick penis

While this article focuses on the advantages of having a thick penis, it can be helpful to look at some the disadvantages as well. Some of these have to do with the perception of penis size, but some are also practical considerations.

  • Condoms: condom manufacturers will need to decide how many of each size they will make, so they will take into consideration average penis size. This means there simply aren't as many large condoms available. You may have to buy them from a specific place or eve order them online. If you are visiting another country, you may also need to be aware that average penis size does change by country. If you are from a country where the penis size is large than average, going somewhere it is smaller can be difficult.
  • Outline: if you regularly wear suit trousers or pants which can show the outline of a bulge, having a thicker penis can make it difficult. You might need a baggier pant than the average and you may not be able to wear all the styles you would have liked.
  • Erections: while this may occur more in adolescent males, older men can also find themselves in embarrassing situations with erections. If your penis is thicker than others, they might be more difficult to hide and this can provide embarrassment depending on the circumstance.
  • Sex: sex can be painful if you have a larger than average penis and you are with someone with a smaller than average passage. Whether with a woman or man, having a thicker penis can prove uncomfortable if your partner is unable to take it. It may be that you can only have certain types of sex and only go at certain speeds.

Advantages of having a thick penis

There is a reason why many men want to have a larger or thicker penis. There is a taboo around the subject for a reason. Porn has lots of titles and videos of men with very large penises. This adds to the misconception that many men feel about their penis. It makes them think they are below average when this may simply be due to making too many comparisons with larger than average penis sizes.

According to a 2015 study from the journal PLoS One, participant women found their preference was for “penises only slightly larger than average”[1]. There is definitely an advantage in being thicker than the average. Here are some of the specific pros:

  • Stimulation of vaginal nerves: the first advantage of a thick penis is that, when penetrating the girl, she will feel more pleasure. This is because the thickness helps to stimulate all the nerve endings found at the entrance of the vagina, making the act something really satisfying for both, but especially for her.
  • Clitoris stimulation: having a thick penis has another advantage. It generatesmore friction during penetration than a thin penis, causing more pleasure to the woman. This is because the friction rubs against the nerve endings in the clitoris during intercourse.
  • Confidence: if you have a thicker than average penis, it can give you confidence in the bedroom. While men with a smaller than average size penis shouldn't rely on their penis for confidence, you can still use your thickness to you advantage. Many women will give a “wow” or similar exclamation if they like what they see when removing your underwear. There is no shame in feeling good about this.
  • Positions: while some people might find their favorite position difficult with a thick penis, it can also let you perform some positions others cannot. This could be the case with someone who has long thick penis.

Remember lubrication

Although the benefits of a thick penis is that it is highly pleasurable during sex, it is equally important that the vagina is well lubricated so that the penetration is much smoother and more enjoyable and doesn't cause pain. In cases of very thick penises, it is a good idea to use lubricant so that both make the most of a very pleasurable sexual encounter. The same goes for anal sex, although everyone should be using lubrication for anal sex to reduce possibility of tearing.

While we might get hung up on the thickness of our own penis, we need to remember that we are having sex with someone else. If you have a thick penis, you need to be considerate of the other person. They will enjoy the feeling of being filled up, but they may not be able to handle fast motion well. This is because the thickness of a person's penis might also cause some pain with the pleasure.

It's important to remember that, whatever your penis size, it is still possible to have a full and diverse sex life. You just need to be considerate, listen to your partner and take time to get comfortable with your body.

Part of being considerate is thinking about the types of positions which might be good for a thick penis. But thickness isn't everything.

Even as a larger than life lesbian, I still prefer thick toys that can handle my jiggle when I bump the trunk in the dark foggy nights.
Mac Lipper
Thank you for the article. My issue has been willing partners and condoms. I have average length but above average girth. Both women and men find me uncomfortable. My BF has similar girth (both over 6) and similar rejection so he and I have to improvise and use different techniques.

As for condoms. I did find some in Europe that provided girth and weren’t too long. They were comfortable enough and better fit than US XXLs.

Even as a HBIC lesbian, I found this informative. As a hefty gal, I like bigger and thicker toys, so this really makes sense. I need real length to slip the toy in when lying on my back when reaching over my belly as well as a wide notch to fill my lusty canal.

The best thing about learning is the possibilities of how we can use our knowledge. Glad to help!
Being too big is a big problem. Most women can't handle my package. It's interesting how many women claim they want a huge penis and will even show you with their hands how large they want the man to be. Most often they can't handle half the length and girth they showed you with their hands! I have had women tell me, and show me, what they want by stacking one or two soda cans together! There is no way in hell they are going to take a man the size of two or three soda cans! In fact, no such men exist. Usually the women who say they want a huge penis can't come close to taking what I have to give them. I have had women scream in pain and soak the sheets in blood when I inserted myself about one third of the way in, and I was using a lubricant each time.
When it comes right down to it, they can't handle a large penis. Many women will bleed all over the sheets and bed like they have been mortally stabbed. Perhaps they have!
Most women who know better prefer an average sized penis. Larger than average, and most women feel discomfort. Much larger than average, and most women feel severe pain. Trust me, I know this empirically. I have experienced this over and over again. I wish I had a much smaller penis.

My wife always says she prefers "thick ones" to "long ones". Being stretched really good during the act gives her the greatest sensations and makes her come heavily while long penises cause her pain while serving them vaginally, When it comes to length she enjoys the average penis (or a little above).
Do you email content? Great information.

I’m old and have a thick penis ( 6.2) it was great in 1960’s 70’s, 80’s but now the women older and they don’t like. These are woman of those years and they not virgins by any means. Back then they loved to give head, now they gag.
Dear Author
Thanks for your article. There are some points which I think must be considered.
1. The average girth is 4.5 in or 11.43 cm.
2. disadvantage of thick penis: a thick penis loses its war against gravity, even when it's erected. Also it needs more blood to erect
3. disadvantage of thick penis: hard oral sex
4. disadvantage of thick penis: many women may not be prefer thick penis for long-term relationship, because as you said it can hurt

I have a very thick penis, about 6.5 inches at mid shaft. I have made every woman orgasm within 2 minutes & have received countless marriage proposals. Sometimes during sex I just penetrate & relax for about 3 or 4 minutes. Without even moving my partner usually orgasms 3 times in that time period. One time I penetrated and Fell asleep inside my partner, I woke up completely soaked and had found my partner had orgasmed 17 times. Being thick is what they want.
In your dreams perhaps, aspiring writer. At minimum, it's clear you stretched the truth and your credibility past their respective limits spelling disbelief & exposing your immaturity. GROW UP.
I have a below average girth (4.2") and I have also made every woman orgasm within a few minutes. I am 6'4" tall and have a longer than average penis though (6.3") and a great body. A girl I am with at the moment had a guy with a really thick cock, beer can, and she said she could not feel it. Women are far more complex than just the nerves in their vaginas. It is much more an emotional thing.
I have a thick penis about 6 in. girth at the head and 5,7 in at the shaft. It really feels good having a thick dong ...makes one feel manly. It's all natural. I've done nothing special to possess the tool that I have except for regular masturbation (applying oil for smooth better play) since my early teens.
I'm really happy to learn that women love it thick. It's understandable though as it's such a nice feeling even to hold such a piece of meat.
Makes me feel proud that I could bring so much pleasure to a woman and be a great lover.
Badlands Babe
... Likewise, It feels so good it can take your breathe away to be the receiver, & accommodate the girth that of the gorgeous piece of meat that you own & speak of...
So, thank you ThickGuy, on behalf of the women you've brought so much pleasure, we appreciate men like you...
methods of enlarging penis size
I just want to get it far enough out of my pants to not dribble on my clothes or the floor. I figured out how to make my partner happy already. Now its my turn.
Jenny Bruso
“Last one there’s a penis pump!!!”
Disadvantage : not finding a condom that fits.
Tell me about it. As such, in my experience women lose concern over that baggage in lieu of the total emotional dynamics they prepare for upon discovering it. Then, believe me, women talk & if they don't wish to be pregnant, they take care of contraception for themselves. You should know by now that rubbers are not only archaic & a joke but suffer from unreliability anyhow.

Hello D A,

We respectfully disagree with your views on the use of condoms. Condoms are still one of the best forms of contraception against pregnancy when used effectively. In terms of sexually transmitted disease, they are perhaps the most effective (other than abstinence). Their use is recommended by medical and sexual health professionals alike. Their unreliability has more to do with their use than their design. Here are some tips for those who want to know more:

I had same issue I’m a genuine 8.5 x 6 inch. However, after much searching heard about ‘MY.SIZE’ available via there site or Amazon. You can get a trial pack - which has size 60,64,and 69 condoms for you to try. Ended up with ‘64’ and being using those since.
My wife and I were at Target after our 2nd was born looking for condoms (couldn't go on birth control for a few months). I don't know if she just didn't think, or if she was proud of her guy. Usually I bought Sheiks, but this time I had found a larger size Trojan (usually they were too small). In a whole line of women at the cash register as she was emptying the shopping cart, she picked up the box and loudly said, "Honey! I thought you didn't like this kind because they weren't big enough around!" A few women looked like they could kill her, a few more looked embarrassed, and the poor girl at the cash register who wasn't even 18 looked like she wanted to melt into the floor.
