Turtle penis? Why showers why growers?

I dated a man once where his penis when flaccid it did not just hang down like normal guys it practically went inside his body, it was basically just a head. He was not overweight and know it's just shrinking due to loss of blood and not actually going inside but  often, it almost didn't show at all, it looked like a baby mushroom.

It did not affect any sexual performance on his part and it did grow. Although he was on the smaller side of things even erect about 5.5 inches. Frankly the sex was fine. 

My current boyfriend has the opposite problem. His flaccid penis is about 5 inches long, but when erect, he is still under 6 inches, so what's better? When I first saw how long he was flaccid, I thought his penis wold be huge hard. I think this was more of a disappointment that it barley got bigger, than my ex who grew a lot.

The classic "Turtle"

I talked to other women about this and there is a derogatory term for this called the Turtle Dick and then there is the "Grower not a shower" saying. The medical term is Chalmicro Penis. Which basically means small penis when soft. 

But I wanted to know why. Why are some men's penises so small soft?
Dr. Shteynshlyuger is among an elite number of fellowship-trained urologists in the United States. Mainly, I wanted to know: 
Was it true? And does the size of a flaccid penis have any relation to the size of a an erect penis?
Shteynshlyuger explains it’s all a matter of skin elasticity. In other words, some men simply have more stretchable penises than others. 

The latter are classified as “showers” because they tend to be more prominent than most in their flaccid state — it’s essentially the same as their erect state. Further, Shteynshlyuger says you can’t really make a good generalization about the relationship between flaccid and erect; it’s different for each man. 
If a shower is larger than average when soft, he likely will be when hard as well. Growers are more unpredictable, and what looks to be a less-than-average flaccid penis can grow to an above-average erect penis, Shteynshlyuger says.
Bottom line: There are small growers and showers, average growers and showers and large growers and showers. “A lot of people wrongly assume if someone is a shower, he has a huge penis,” Shteynshlyuger says. “But it just means the penis doesn’t stretch as much as the grower.” Nor does one typically get harder than the other, since the firmness of an erection is a result of good blood supply and determined by a totally different part of the penis. 
As for numbers, 79 percent of men are growers while 21 percent are showers, according to an international Men’s Health survey. In terms of demographics, younger men tend to have more stretchable penises because the collagen fibers inside the penis become less stretchable as a man ages.

The jury, however, is still out on the Darwinian angle. “A shower, especially if it’s a big shower, signals to a female about the reproductive capacity and the grandeur,” Shteynshlyuger explains. Women are not as visually stimulated as men but Shteynshlyuger explains that a large penis does and can attract and arose a women so a large flaccid one would be visually stimulating. 
On the other hand, he argues, a grower has the best of both worlds: It provides protection to the nether regions (shrinkage is the body’s way of protecting the penis from the elements), while also impressing when erect. 

The male penis contracts mainly for protection and it has been shown that men with smaller flaccid penises are more adapt at maneuvering, more physically fit overall, can typically run faster and are more flexible. Doctors think that it's possibly that over time men developed there penis size and state based on the needs of what there survival required.

Taking my man to a nude beach with me?

When someone says nude beach, all I'm imagining is old fat dudes and their penises dangling everywhere and saggy old women titties. Oh wait my tits have begun to sag... 

Anyways I have been to plenty of nude beaches now so sure I'd go again. But this is not about me going it's about if my girlfriend and her husband are going. The conversation came up with a bunch of gals over coffee one morning. Amy said her husband and her had planned a trip to Greece in March and that she had jested with her husband that they visit a nude beach. She thought who cares if she and him are naked half way around the world - she wanted to see what the fuss was all about. 

As she made the jest she surely thought her husband would jump at the chance to see naked women on the beach with her wife's approval, instead she got a very odd "oh we can see" as he walked away. 

Amy at first was perplexed and then thought maybe he was embarrassed of her, then she got angry assuming he did not wa…

The penis size debate from a former prostitute

We get questions all the time still about penis size, so we asked Sara The Sex Lady who has plenty of experience to just help us out again.

Before I start I will just upfront say I have probably slept with over 250-300 men, and yes I can tell you they come in all shapes and sizes, and no you can't figure out who's packin' and who's not reliably without dropping the pants. Seen them big on small men and small on big men, black and white it all is a guessing game.

Why so many men? Well for those of you that don't know, when I was younger I made a bad choice to go into the prostitution profession. At 42 I have been done with that for many, many years, but sexually I have always been open. I now council those same girls, and I assist couples in sex therapy sessions. Before we get into this whole penis size debate, again I need women reading this to understand that most men, no matter what age frankly don’t know how to fuck! But... older men are usually better, and out …

3Xtra Inches Penis sleeve review

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="392"] Everyone could use an extra 3 inches... right?[/caption]

We reviewed several new penis sleeves extensions from LoveHoney to review. I sent them out to our army of women to review and report back.Here is what they have to say about this product. I have yet to try it out but it does seem intriguing since it's basically a dildo but it would allow your man to be closer to you during the act. It provides a full 8 1/2 inches of length and is nice and thick. Made from the same Pleasure Skin material as other quality dildos when I tried it out just as a dildo it was just as good as others I have tried. On a man it would only be better.


I was a little dubious about this toy initially when Jane sent it. I had used plenty of vibrators or dildos but as my partner satisfies me already I was not sure about this but thought to spice things up we'd give it a go. He was receptive but I was not sure. He slipped it on…
