i'm almost 17 years old, my penis is 4.7 inches long, is this average or small ?

Remember: Try to not get to caught up on size. You're more likely concerned about this rather than others! I know it's easier said than done. There are studies from the UK that suggest that average male penis is 5.5-6.3 inches when erect.

You're just fine: It's a little shorter than average but you will be able to satisfy pretty much any partner that any other guy can. A smaller guy gets harder and has an easier time stimulating her best nerve endings which are in the front. Satisfaction from being gratified orally may be greater. Don't compare yourself with what you see on the internet, and learn to use your whole body to be a great lover.

No: Absolutely not. It is completely normal for an infant to tug on, fondle or rub his penis once he's developmentally capable of finding it with his hand.

No: Do not get into stretching exercises to enlarge the penis. Outside of the approved vacuum device to allow an erection, don't manipulate the penis to enlarge it. It is dangerous. Enjoy what you have and when it is worn out, we will see about getting you a new one.

Specializes in Pediatric Urology
See pedi urologist: An experienced pediatric urologist, or a reconstructive urologic surgeon with plenty of experience with urethral reconstruction, are probably the best drs. To deal with this problem. We advise patients that the urinary meatus should reach the the coronal sulcus (groove at base of glans) for satisfactory fertilility. Alternative is to do nothing if functions (urination & sex) are satisfactory..
