Penis size is a sensitive issue, and a subjective one. We all tend to have a vague understanding of ‘big’ and ‘small’, but when it comes to sex there isn’t much clarity of what any of it means. Is it length? Circumference? Is there some secret equation we should all learn? Maybe we should start measuring by weight. Or surface area. (If you’re interested, here’s the equation for working out the surface area of a cylinder: A = 2πrh + 2πr². Just make sure you keep a Casio scientific calculator in your bedside drawer.)
We’ve talked in the past about how to have sex with a well-endowed man, but time and time again, surveys all over the world – including our own global sex survey – return results saying that the vast majority of women don’t consider penis size an issue one way or the other, and that men worry about it far more than women do. The concept of ‘size’ isn’t the right way to look at it, it’s better to think about shape, and which positions can offer the most pleasure for both partners.
Here are our favorite sex positions by penis type.
Penis Type #1: The Scimitar
The standing T
This position suits both of you best because it allows your penis to naturally follow the shape of her body. It’s a very smooth, simple and pleasurable position that allows for fast sex, slow sex, and penis size is completely irrelevant. What’s more, the steeper the curve of your penis, the better it feels stroking her G-spot.
Penis Type #2: The Lighthouse
Doggy style is a great position for most penis shapes and sizes, but it’s particularly good for this penis type because a lot of women sometimes find entry painful in this position – at least at first and particularly if he has a substantial penis. (Add plenty of personal moisturizer!) A straight penis that narrows towards the end makes entry more comfortable, and remains satisfying.
Penis Type #3: The Ruler
This is the most versatile penis shape: it’s a go-anywhere, do-anything jack of all trades. So the world’s your oyster. But if it’s particularly long, then we recommend The Frisk. It allows her to change her position as much as she likes for different angles and sensations.
Penis Type #4: The Chiquita
This position, with her legs thrown over her shoulders and knees separated, offers more depth and more room to pull all the way out and all the way in again. It’s also a fantastic position for G-spot stimulation!
