Well...: It's not that your penis won't grow as big, but often having surrounding fat will give it the appearence of being smaller. Secondly, having excess body fat causes your testosterone not to work as well, making erections more difficult. My friend John LaPuma has written an excellent book on this subject! http://www.amazon.com/dp/077043746X/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=ur2&tag=chefclinic
