Men tend to equate the size of their penis to how masculine they are and how easily they can please sexual partners. More than half of the world’s population has access to the internet and therefore free internet pornography. It’s easy to see why the world is becoming increasingly vain when it comes to genitals, especially penis size. If you’re worried about your own manhood, you probably think it’s smaller than average.
