Penis size is determined by genetics and hormones
If a man has a small penis then there are two possibilities: Either
he was meant to be small, or he was not and something went wrong during
the time his penis was supposed to grow more. The thing that counts is that
young men could avoid the
circumstances that might impair the growth of their penis. During a young
man's puberty, his body changes from boy to adult. The amount his penis
grows is said to be determined by two factors: genetics (hereditary) and
the supply of the right amounts of growth hormones during this growth
The genetics part is a thing that can't be influenced (for now).
The production of growth inducing hormones however can sometimes be
weakened by external factors:
- excessive stress (emotional and/or
At extreme levels this could affect
body growth as well as the development of the genitals. If you are a
parent, it is your job to make sure that your son has the best environment
possible to let him develop at his optimal capacity.
much bicycling could lead to a small penis
In the last few years scientists have researched some new causes of
impotence in adult men. They discovered that extensive bicycling
could lead to genital numbness, penile failure and even shrinkage. I go
one step further and speculate that too much bicycling in one's youth
could attribute to penile underdevelopment.
The reason is that when a man sits on a
he has practically all his weight concentrated on the place between the sit
bones, more specifically the perineum. All the essential wiring that
feeds the penis (like nerves and blood vessels) is funneled through this
area, meaning he is putting his entire body weight on the artery that supplies
When this artery is pinched the
supply of nutrients and growth
hormones is virtually shut off. If this happens on a continuous basis then
there has to be an effect on the proper development of the penis. Worse, chronic saddle pressure
can even damage and
scar these arteries, followed by narrowing. This reduces the blood flow
even when that man is not riding his bicycle. Result, a continuously
insufficient supply of
growth hormones, even during that time of the day when a penis is supposed to
grow the most: at night.
Bicycles can have different saddles and the one causing the most damage
is the narrow hard type. If you are a parent and your child uses a
bicycle then the least you could do is make sure that it has a decent
saddle. There are ergonomic types with flexible noses and others that have
a hole in the middle to relieve pressure from the perineum. However, some
doctors are skeptical to any design that fits between the sitbones and it
is probably recommended to choose a wider, more heavily padded brand.
sure the saddle is level or pointing a few degrees downward. It is also
important that you teach your child to stand up every 10 minutes or so to
encourage blood flow. Check that his knees are not fully extended at the
bottom of the pedal stroke. They should be slightly bent to support more
bodyweight. Also, make sure that the top tube is heavily padded because if
not, your guy might suffer severe penile damage during a fall.
Besides these technical things, you could also make sure he doesn't ride
his bicycle too much and offer other means of transportation. Encourage
him to do other types of physical exercise as well. By doing all this, you
are at least avoiding any potentially negative effects on his genital
development. One day he might thank you for it.
