A 44-year-old member asked:

Is it normal for a penis to shrivel down to a really small size after an erection?

Sort of: After sex, the blood drains out and it should return to whatever size it was before the erection. It's up to you to determine what "really small" means.

YES: This is normal and as men age the abd. Fat lowers over the pubic bone sometimes hiding the shaft some.
