I was pre-puberty and I was embarrassed all the time. There were two or three boys who were obviously very well developed and they would swagger around showing off.

On one occasion, my friend’s mother got really angry and told me I must not do this anymore and I had to take off my wet pajamas in the kitchen in front of everyone and that’s something I remember vividly.

It was quite a horrible time and it happened once again when we went to stay in a hotel in the west of England.

At this point, I was about 12 and I was quite fat because I lived with my dad and he didn’t cook, so I was just eating loads of junk food.

While a precise number is open to scientific debate, it’s commonly accepted that the average size of an adult male penis is five and a quarter inches, erect.

Generally speaking, measure in under about three inches erect, and you have what’s called a micropenis — the least common of the conditions falling under the banner of an “inconspicuous penis,” which includes a webbed penis, where it is difficult to decipher exactly where the scrotum ends and the penis begins; or a buried penis, where the shaft of the penis is hidden by skin and fat.

Thought to be caused by inadequate testosterone in the later stages of fetal development, or maybe insensitivity to androgen, it’s a rare and often self-misdiagnosed condition.

Only 0.6 percent of the population has a true micropenis — but peruse online forums and you’ll find many men with average-size or larger penises lamenting concerns about their seemingly inadequate genitals.

The series of recent conversations I’ve had with heterosexual men who have true micropenises share common strands of despair: a scarring first sexual encounter; paralyzing fears of relationships and intimacy; confusing ideas of normality gained from the men they see in porn (even at the annual “Smallest Penis in Brooklyn" competition, the male bits are concealed using decorative toilet paper); resentment toward women; desperate attempts to enlarge using painful pumps, expensive pills, or alternative medicine (none of which work), and experiments with non-penetrative forms of sexual release such as receiving anal sex from men or masturbation assisted by sex toys.

One man I spoke with, a 51-year-old English teacher from the U.

K., gave an in-depth account of his life with a micropenis. It varies a lot, but I will give you my latest findings from the tape measure department: Max length is 2 inches soft, and 3 inches hard.

The circumference — 3.3 inches soft, 4.0 inches hard When did you realize you were smaller than average? When I was 9 years old, my parents split up and my dad would send me to stay with friends and relatives during the summer.
