They know what it is, what it’s for, and what to do with it. But what’s really going through a woman’s mind when she gets acquainted with your penis? By Danielle Anne Suleik
I could wax poetic about the parts of the penis, but the gist of it all is this: there’s a head, a shaft, and a couple of balls. The number of parts can be multiplied in terms of sex, but for the purpose of this article I will stick to the basics first.
There’s a new misconception that women tend to smile with glee whenever the word ‘penis’ is mentioned, but that is absolutely not true. Women can be terrified of it. It’s not just a symbol of virility or the mark of a man. It is an entity that has the ability to invade a woman’s most intimate area… and more.
As far as private parts go, the penis is probably the most obvious of them all. It is literally out there for the entire world to admire or abhor. It can be big, small, fat, thin, loopy, technicolored or even bedazzled. When it comes to variety, the penis does not disappoint.
How much are women interested in penises?
Women are designed to be passively interested in penises. When they first meet a man, they don’t immediately gaze at a man’s crotch the way some men do with women’s breasts. The thought of a man’s penis size and shape simply passes through a girl’s mind. It’s not something that they fixate on all through the night.
But that doesn’t mean that women are incapable of having sexual thoughts. Women are just more focused on the process of making love or having sex, rather than the anatomical factors involved. They are usually optimistic about the size of their partner’s member before they get into bed, which makes their disappointment more evident when they are not satisfied.
The truth is, women are more interested in your penis once they’ve seen it. Before that, they worry more about how your relationship is going to progress and whether you will be a good boyfriend. That is usually advantageous for guys because no matter how disappointing their penis is, they can compensate by being loving and affectionate. Sometimes, that is all that counts.
The exception to this rule is when they are dating someone from a specific race. Let’s not dodge the topic and admit that there are some discrepancies when it comes to genetics. Science and surveys have proven that. That doesn’t mean that a woman will prejudge you based on your ethnicity. It just means that they already have a preconceived notion about your penis before you sleep together.
What are the different types of penises according to women?
Size does matter, but there are other factors that need to be considered when women ponder upon penises. Yes, they are as different as the people who own them. However, there are specific categories that women are aware of. [Read: How much does size matter to a woman?]
#1 The really big penis. (Length: > 7inches Circumference: > 6inches) Any guy can have a huge penis, but some have extremely huge ones that are primarily evident in the folds of their chinos. Women are not really sure if they want a man with a huge penis. Some can’t take the size, while some are reluctant to stretch out their vaginas just to try it. It may be something a man can be proud of, but that doesn’t mean that everyone wants a piece of it.
#2 The micropenis. (L: < 3in C: < 4in) This is the really big penis’s slightly less endowed counterpart. More and more men are speaking up about the disadvantages of having a tiny penis. They almost never give G-spot orgasms and men who have them usually have distressing views on their overall credibility as a man. However, they can be well aware that they’re not well endowed, so they make up for it through other means like sex toys, using their hands or being a very cunning linguist.

#3 The average penis. (L: 5-6in C: 5-6in) Popular belief is that a man with this type of penis can give about 6-7 orgasms for every 10 times they have sex, but only if it’s paired with a great technique. Women who have partners with average penises usually don’t complain about the size, but they may not be satisfied with the technique their partner uses.
#4 The smaller penis. (Smaller than the ex’s) No matter how good you are in bed, your partner can never admit that your penis is better than her ex’s, simply because the ex was just that good. The only way to not become a person with this type of penis is to never ask about your girlfriend’s ex. [Read: 11 hot ways you can get better in bed]
#5 The unicorn. (Perfectly proportioned to her vagina) This one is a rare find. It is exactly the penis of a woman’s dreams, if she ever took the time to imagine one. It fits perfectly inside her, right down to the curve, and it can always give her a G-spot orgasm. It’s huge enough to generate waves of pleasure, but not so big that it can choke a girl when she’s going down on you. Any penis can be a unicorn if it finds its female counterpart.

#6 The work of art. (Requires algebra and calculus to measure) Surprisingly, a lot of men have strangely-shaped and colored penises. Some look like chocolate dipped hotdogs, while some have architectural differences alluded to angle and shaft-to-head proportion. Women are slightly apprehensive of penises like these. Unless it looks like a monster out of their nightmare, they will be willing to try it once or twice to see if they like it.
#7 The one with technical difficulties. (Varies but can rarely be measured erect) Size and shape won’t matter if the machinery doesn’t work. Women want men who can perform at a moment’s notice. The point of sex is to derive pleasure from each other and reach a climax. You need to medicate or check with a physician if your penis isn’t doing anything except take up space in your boxers.

What type of penis do women want?
Women have a specific set of standards when it comes to choosing the right type of penis to spend the rest of their lives with. When dating, women wonder about it, but aren’t exactly interested in inspecting the goods immediately. But if they did, what would they be checking for?
#1 Hygiene. It’s understandable that a woman will touch or taste your penis at some point in the relationship. If they smell something funky or see something disturbing down there, they will retreat. This is a good note for men who have uncircumcised penises or impenetrable bushes. Just remember to wash and trim. [Read: What’s it like to sleep with an uncircumcised man?]
#2 Size. Don’t worry about the length of your penis if you’ve got the girth. A penis circumference of 5 inches or more can get a girl off even with a penis that’s 3 or 4 inches long. It may not be aesthetically pleasing, but women rarely consider a penis’s appearance if it’s enough to get her off.
#3 Appearance. If your penis has a strange appearance, make sure that you warn your girl about it. Some women do not know how to handle surprises, and you might end up getting offended if she had no idea what she was getting into.
#4 Exposure. Women don’t want to see your penis for more than a couple of hours at a time. They have other things to do and you walking around with your dick out can be distracting. It also kills the anticipation of your next sexual encounter, because the sight of your penis won’t induce any awe anymore.
#5 The twins. The balls are the most blatant accessory any person can ever have. They are definitely out there and are always part of the package. Women prefer tight, average-sized testicles rather than pendulum-like uvulas attached to your shaft. Take care of your boys to prevent that from happening. Try not to tug on them while masturbating and always wear the prerequisite support they need, especially when participating in sports. Women prefer not to touch hairy balls as well, so don’t forget to trim down there, too.
Who knew women had other concerns about penises aside from size, right? The good thing is that knowing these things will help you prepare the woman you’re dating for whatever it is you’re carrying. Just having a neat and clean penis will go a long way, rather than just having a big appendage to impress the ladies.
Know how to use your penis and maximize its presentation. Don’t just whip it out and show it to your partner. Make sure that you do everything necessary to prepare her for the inevitable unveiling of your prized possession. No matter what size it is or how it looks, you can rest assured that women will be more interested in what you have to offer if you show them your sincerity and kindness.
