You need to watch out for your penis! Sigmund Freud famously remarked that “Penis envy is a common cause of psychosexual conflict”. So if you’re starting to feel envious of your penis, you’re probably wondering if it gets any smaller when you lose weight. Let’s discuss.
Yes, Your Penis Does Get Smaller When You Lose Weight
First of all, let’s establish the obvious: your penis gets smaller when you lose weight. This is because testosterone, the hormone that most notably governs male characteristics, is known to be responsible for the growth of your manhood. When you lose weight, your testosterone levels drop which leads to your penis shrinking. Now you may be thinking, “So if my penis shrinks, does that mean I’m less of a man?” Well, not exactly. Let’s discuss the psychological effects that a smaller penis can have.
Why Do You Feel That Way?
First of all, let’s remember that testosterone is a sex hormone. As you may know, the main function of testosterone is to create sexual desire. So, it’s not surprising that when your testosterone levels drop, your sex drive decreases as well. This can make you feel less of a man, because there’s no greater symbol of manhood than being able to provide for your family and enjoy intimacy with a partner. But that’s just one side of the story; your penis getting smaller also has a dark side. We’ll discuss more in a bit.
Does It Feel Any Different?
When your penis gets smaller, it doesn’t necessarily feel smaller. For many men, their penis feels the same size (or even a little bit larger) than it did before, because they’ve become so used to it. If you’ve had surgery to enlarge your penis (such as a penile implant) then the size may feel different, but it still feels similar in terms of its girth. Keep in mind that the size of your penis doesn’t necessarily determine how you’ll perform as a man. Many studies have shown that how you feel about yourself is more important than the size of your penis. If you feel like a failure because your penis is small, then that’s what will show up in your performance as a man.
Is It An Injustice?
Now, here’s where things get a little dark. If you’re starting to feel dissatisfied with your penis, it may be an indicator that you’re not comfortable with the way you are. In other words, you feel like you’re not living up to your full potential as a man, and that your penis is holding you back. You can resolve this by taking steps to increase your testosterone levels, which will result in your penis growing back to its normal size. So while it can be frustrating to lose weight only to find the size of your penis decreases, it can also be a sign that you need to reevaluate your life. To get back to where you started, you may need to go on a diet, exercise regimen or take supplements to boost your testosterone levels. There are many ways to increase your manliness. Don’t give up!
How Does It Affect Your Relationships?
As you’ve probably guessed, the amount of time you spend focused on your penis can have a negative impact on your relationships. When you’re preoccupied with how your penis measures up in comparison to other men’s, you may start to see your significant other as a rival. This could lead to serious problems. Even if you don’t show it, this kind of thinking can creep into your head, which could affect the way you act towards your spouse. So it’s important to pay attention to how you feel about your penis, because it can have a profound (and often hidden) impact on your relationships.
Is It Confining?
While it may not always be convenient to discuss your penis in polite society, it’s important to remember that there are some cultures that see the penis as a symbol of male power. In these cultures, a man’s penis is a mark of authority; it’s something to be feared and desired. So if you’re from a culture where your manhood is looked up to, it may feel like an injustice that your penis is becoming smaller. You may feel restricted, limited, or even oppressed by your small penis. Does that sound familiar? If so, you may need to work through these issues, because a big part of being a man is feeling comfortable in your own skin. Remember that your penis is a symbol of your strength and potency, but it should never be a source of shame.
Dark Side Of A Small Penis
Now, let’s explore the dark side of having a small penis. While it can be frustrating when your penis starts to shrink after losing weight, it’s also terrifying. If you’re starting to feel like your penis is a symbol of your manhood, and you start to feel insecure or inadequate, then it can be a major blow to your self-image. If you start to feel like your penis is a constant reminder of your failure as a man, then you’re going to be in for a lot of emotional pain. It can also lead to poor decision-making, as you’ll be driven by your feelings of inadequacy. This can get you into dangerous situations, such as getting into fights with other men, or even turning to crime. Keep in mind that there’s a reason why testosterone is known as “man’s hormone”; it’s because it promotes both violent and sexual activities in men. So if you start to feel like your masculinity is in question because of your penis, then you can be sure that your hormones are telling you that you’re indeed less of a man.
Do you feel like you’re not living up to your full potential as a man? Are you feeling insecure about the size of your penis? If so, you may be wondering if there’s something wrong with you, as a person, because you don’t feel like you can provide for your family or be the provider that your womenfolk depend on.
