Recently, historians revealed that while Adolf Hitler was trying to take over the world, he was dealing with a “tiny deformed penis,” as well as one testicle. This news brought to light several questions about the medical deformity known as the micropenis. Because it’s ingrained in men from birth that you have to be a Greek god to be seen as attractive, a lot of guys don’t talk about their smaller than average genitals, which leads to quite a bit of misinformation. We’ve decided to clear up a lot of the noise that’s out there about the microphallus, and hopefully answer some of your burning questions. Here’s everything you need to know about micropenises.

What is a micropenis?


A micropenis is an unusually small penis. It is a penis that is 2.5 deviations from the average penis size - three centimeters when stretched while flaccid; it has also been referred to as a buried penis or an inverted penis. Here is a NSFW picture of a micropenis (IF YOU CLICK THIS LINK YOU WILL ARRIVE AT A PICTURE OF A MICROPENIS). The condition is usually recognized after birth. And according to Wikipedia, most eight- to 14-year-old boys referred for micropenis do not actually have a micropenis.

What is it like for a man to have sex if he has a micropenis?


According to NY Mag's interview with a man who has a micropenis, how good or bad the sex is depends a lot on the people involved, and how educated they are about getting the most out of what they're working with. However, penetrative sex can be "really very difficult." Another man told Buzzfeed that his micropenis "ruined his marriage." Generally, it seems, men don't like having micropenises.

What is it like for a woman to have sex with a man who has a micropenis?


According to one anonymous gal, having penetrative sex with a micropenis "felt like someone was knocking on a door but not pushing through." Another told Buzzfeed that while the penetrative sex "was kind of awkward for us both," they mostly focused on oral, and it was satisfying. And yet another said that the size of the micropenis did make it awkward, but that he made up for it "in some serious cunnilingus skills."

Is it difficult for a man with a micropenis to impregnate women?


According to doctor Sari Locker, the size of a penis doesn't matter when it comes to conception. The force of the ejaculate is enough to fertilize an egg. She says that position is what matters when it comes to getting pregnant from a micropenis. So: "sperm should be deposited so that it moves toward the back of the vagina, to go into the cervix. Rather than having sex with the woman on top (which could cause semen to leak out after ejaculation) instead, the woman could be more likely to get pregnant if they have sex with the man on top."

What causes a micropenis?


A micropenis is something that occurs in the womb, and is thought to happen when the male baby’s penis fails to elongate after the first trimester of pregnancy due to a lack of testosterone. There have also been studies that found that a micropenis may be caused by environmental chemicals such as pesticides.

What's it like to live with a micropenis?


In a Salon interview from 2015, a man named Chris describes life with a micropenis as being kind of hard. In school he had to deal with an unusual amount of torment from his schoolmates, and as an adult his ex-wife made mention of his micropenis when she was leaving him. Aside from the sexual aspect of his genitalia, the hardest part about having a micropenis, to Chris, seems to be using a public restroom. A collection of anonymous men on Buzzfeed have described the harrowing experience of having a micropenis as such: "[I] fear I will be single for my entire life," "my girlfriends always break up with me... because they can't marry someone with a micropenis," and "I am afraid to change in front of my teammates because of my small micropenis."

How many men have micropenises?


According to a study published in the British Journal of Urology International, 45% of men believe that they have a small penis, though it's practically impossible that 45% of men have micropenises. In fact, Dr. Joseph Aluka, assistant professor of urology and director of male reproductive health at NYU's Langone Medical Center told Buzzfeed that micropenises are much more rare than that - about one in every 200 men have them.

What do women think about micropenises?


Because micropenises are not presented as the norm, and in America the phrase "bigger is better" is extolled to the extreme, it can be embarrassing for someone with a micropenis to show their partner for the first time. And yes, there are going to be some people who aren't into a MP, but more often than not, no one cares
