“I’m not someone I would want to have a relationship with if I were a woman. I’m a pathetic little nothing really, that’s what it’s made me feel like,” teacher from the U.K

My Mag conducted and interview with a 51-year-old English teacher form the UK who has a micropenis, we'll refer to him as Mr x.

The length of Mr X's penis is 2 inches soft, and 3 inches hard; while the circumference soft is 3.3 inches and 4.0 inches hard.

In a recent study scientists found according to an analysis of more than 15,000 men around the world that the average size of a penis when erect is 13.12 centimetres (5.16 inches) in length and 11.66 cm in thickness. While in is dormant state the penis is 9.16 cm by 9.31 cm.

According to News Medical having a micropenis is a medical condition where the size of the penis in adult men refers to any penis smaller than 2.8 inches in length. This condition is caused when there is insufficient levels of the hormone testosterone during the first trimester of pregnancy resulting in the male baby’s penis failing to elongate.

Problems that could arise:

- Low sperm count and infertility

- Difficulty urinating and having sexual intercourse

- Low self-esteem and depression

Living with a micropenis:

Mr X first discovered his penis was different at the age of 9 and was teased at school by both teachers and students.

He was also bullied for being overweight which caused him to become anorexic.

Unfortunately although Mr X lost weight and become very thin, his penis stopped growing at the age of 14.

This affected his self-esteem and caused him to remain a virgin until the age of 23.

His first sexual experience was 'traumatic' because he didn't tell his female partner about his penis size and she was 'visibly disappointed'. After trying for some time Mr X was unable to penetrate her. It took him 2 years to build the courage to try having sex again.

Mr X describes losing his virginity:

"It was great, even though it was also embarrassing. It was much better than the first time because the girl I was with was very experienced and knew how to deal with me; she just knew how to get what little I had to offer."

His girlfriend soon got tired of him and ended the relationship after a year which led him to explore being gay.

"For a while I thought, It’s no good. I thought maybe I should just be gay, maybe I could just be a bitch to a gay man, I could take it up the ass. But I didn't’ enjoy it very much and I realized I wasn’t gay. You’re either gay or you’re not; you can’t make yourself be gay."

Mr X says that it is very difficult for him to penetrate a woman but he enjoys performing oral sex. His main form of finding sexual release is masturbation.

"I love masturbation. It’s great. I’m sure it must be nicer if you have six or seven or ten inches of stuff to play with, but it’s still very sensitive. For men like me, it’s much more a matter of finding something like a towel or lying on a bed and rubbing against it, rather than using my hands."

He is still single and in pursuit of his ideal woman who should be the dominant one in the relationship.
