This is not a joke post.
I know that penises, like everything in nature, range in size. But I hadn’t known about a phenomenon known as micropenis until yesterday, when I found out about a post on Reddit’s “Am I the Asshole?” sub, on February 7, 2019, by a woman who calls herself throwaway_peen34.
Three days ago, the woman, 27, married her husband, 32, and discovered that he has a micropenis. Responding to a Reddit reader, she said her husband’s penis is “about an inch and a quarter”. Here’s her post:
So, we only dated for six months. We’ve been engaged for another six and just got married on Saturday. I literally just got back from my honeymoon a couple hours ago. My husband isn’t a religious guy, he just says he is “old fashioned like that.” We got close to fooling around a couple times but it never went far. I tried, but he always stopped after it went “too far”. Anyway, fast forward to now…
Am I the asshole for reading into this and being upset that I waited until my wedding night to find out that he probably isn’t as “old fashioned” as he says he is? I’m not going to shame him and honestly I don’t even know how I’ll broach the topic (and I’m not seeking advice). I honestly just acted like nothing was out of the ordinary and went to town with him, but…I dunno. I kind of feel lied to. Like a halftruth…or something was intentionally withheld from me. This was unexpected, to say the least. And if you read this far, thanks for your time.
The consensus of Reddit readers is that the woman is not an a**hole for feeling that her husband had deceived her.
Daily Mail has reported on the micropenis phenomenon:
- An article on September 23, 2016, about a 35-year-old man who is “deeply ashamed” of his one-inch micropenis.
- An article on May 19, 2017, about Ant Smith, 50, a poet, who speaks openly about his 1″ micropenis. He wrote the book, The Small Penis Bible, to help other men with the condition.
- An article on July 16, 2014, about an Australian man, 33, who mortgaged his home to pay for a $45,000 surgery to lengthen and widen his micropenis, which was 2-3 cm (0.79″ to 1.18″) when flaccid, and around 7 cm (2.76″) when erect. The surgery failed, but the man planned to spend $68,000 in another attempt.
According to Daily Mail, one percent of men have a micropenis, which is usually defined as less han 2.75 inches when erect, 2½ times smaller than the average penis length. A “systematic review” published in 2015 put the length of an average flaccid penis at around 3.5 inches, and 5 inches for the average erect penis.
