Does Weight Loss Increase Penis Size? Can Losing Fat Make It Bigger

Can Losing Fat Make It Bigger? How Can Obesity Affect Erectile Dysfunction? Penile Length Gains Will Be Buried In The Belly Unless You Exercise.

Prof. Shariat has published over 1400 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. In 2014 he received the Matula Award from the European Society of Urology (EAU), and in 2017 the Gold Cystoscope Award from the American Society of Urology, probably the most important urologist award worldwide.

And it’s safe to say that there are not many positive things to say about being overweight let alone the effects that it has with regards to your penis.

Hopefully, you will consider this article with the utmost importance as you would treat the health label that shows up on the back of a cigarette packet, because the severity is, in fact, that dark.

It would also help if fast-food companies like McDonald’s could learn a few things from such labels; imagine the effect that it would have on people’s lives when they opened the box of fries or burger, and there was a picture of a fat guy with a below-average penile size on display. I’m sure that would put people off their food wouldn’t it, ;-)

The Mystery Of The Invisible Penis…

In a recent survey that was conducted by the Institute of psychiatry, psychology, and neuroscience, they discovered that the average flaccid size of a penis is 3.6 inches and erect size is 5.6 inches.

The statistics can easily be verified by the study which pretty much went viral and is available all over the Internet for you to feast your eyes upon.

However, that’s not what the issue is here – for fat men; their primary concern is not whether or not they have an averagely sized penis or not, instead, it is to establish whether or not their penis exists, because it’s challenging to be seen with their naked eye. The fact is that 1/3 of men are so fat that they can’t see it.

Here is a quick diagnosis that you can trust on the Internet. Answer this question to diagnose yourself as fat or not… Drumroll, please… Can you see your penis?


How Did You Measure Up?

The actual beginning and root/base of your penis are located deep within your body. If you get a ruler and press it into your body fat along the penis length at the pubic bone, you will notice that some of your penis is hidden beneath pubic fat.

This is one of the ways of actually and accurately measuring and it is referred to with acronyms that are quite famous on penis-related forums. BPEL stands for bone pressed erect length. NBP stands for non-bone pressed on the fat pad is what causes the discrepancy between the two measurements.

The bigger the fat pad, the more hidden part of your penis will be and therefore will appear smaller when you look at it, considering your belly fat is not blocking it in the first place.

Even if you’re skinny, you will still have some degree of a fat pad. Lean guys will have a much smaller fat pad than say somebody who weighs 40 kg over what he should – this guy’s fat pad may be over an inch.

Hopefully, this is the motivation that you need for you to start losing weight. I know it would be for a lot of other guys and me. Considering most guys want a bigger penis and not a small penis they will do whatever they can to make it bigger. So at least use what you have by showing the penis that you’ve got hidden.

The fatter you get, the more hidden your penis will become and will lead to a condition called the buried penis. No points for guessing what that is!

But that’s not the only problem, obesity and excessive weight lead to other complications which will impact your penis health, size, and general well-being. We will get into some of the complexities further down in this article, but first, there is another important thing that you must ensure…

Erection Quality Should Be At Maximum Capacity

Your maximum size is your maximum size, there are ways of increasing it using extenders, pumps, manual exercises, weights, etc. but for now, let’s just say that generally, you cannot exceed your maximum size.

Most men, however, don’t reach their full, real potential. Their erection is not at 100% because not enough blood is getting to the penis. There are many reasons for this and being overweight is just one of them. Other reasons could be smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other complications.

Increase your erection quality and hardness by improving your overall health and usually whatever is right for your heart and circulation is generally good for your penis.

There Are Pills You Can Take To Help You With This…

Male enhancement pills will not exactly add inches to your penis but what they do is that they improve blood flow and the overall health of your erect penis. They will help the blood flow so more blood will flow into the flaccid penis, and your erection quality will improve significantly so that you will achieve rock hard and throbbing erection that will be harder than you have ever thought imaginable.

Supplements such as VigRX Plus, Male Extra, ExtenZe, ProSolution Plus Pills, and Vimax are just a few of the recommended ones that you can begin to use and start to see results emanate from them immediately. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t make the lifestyle changes and just consume supplements, that’s not what we are saying, but they are supplements, and they are called that for a reason – TO SUPPLEMENT!

Here Are Some Other Problems Associated With Being an Obese Man And Possessing A Penis Simultaneously

Low Self Esteem

Being fat will cause you to become less confident on your own But having extra pounds of weight, especially around your groin doesn’t help. It’s going to engulf part of your penis and make it appear shorter than what it is. Looking like some penis shrinkage has taken place.

It will impair sexual function if you have a big fat belly protruding. You could, of course, bend her over and rest your body weight on her back as you try to penetrate her from behind. Well… It is an option, and we do genuinely want to help, but there’s only so much sexual performance you will be capable of until you decide to lose that excess weight.

Reduced Stamina

Most people who are overweight are unhealthy. All those extra calories, that’s how they got fat in the first place. And, most men can feel how unhealthy they have become after weight gain. Their sexual health declines and so does their stamina and testosterone levels. They get out of breath walking up the stairs, how on earth do you think he can manage 20 strokes of sexual activity?

Skin Problems…

All of the excess fat and folds of skin become hot, sweaty breeding grounds for bacteria to grow, which causes skin conditions such as thrush and even other fungal infections. Even if you wash regularly, the smeg will always be present until you can get deep into the cracks and crevices of your beautiful crotch rot.


The penis is very densely populated with nerve endings, that’s why it’s so sensitive, and it feels so good when it is pleasured. There are roughly over 4000 nerve endings in the glans of the penis alone. The excess fat from your belly that hangs low then squishes the nerve endings, and by this excessive weight continually being there, it will cause a loss of sensation over time, making it harder to experience pleasure and impact erectile function causing sexual dysfunction.

Circulation Problems

The same heart and function will be required to pump blood around your body whether you are ten stones or 30 stones in weight. So inevitably, by having more fat cells, your heart has to work much harder to pump blood, not only that but the volume of blood that will reach the penis will be drastically reduced and therefore impact erection quality.

What Should You Do?

I think I can safely say for those of you who are overweight; this may have been a wake-up call and most probably not a pleasant read – which is understandable. I didn’t have much fun writing it either, seeing how morbid the whole topic is.

But there are a few things that you can start doing today to aid you to achieve harder interactions.

1. Quit smoking – smoking will only hinder your erection quality, so if you are overweight (which is already slowing it down) then most definitely stop smoking immediately.

2. shave or trim your pubic hair – it’s a temporary fix, but it does help. It’s just an added layer that is visually adding to the size of your fat pad.

3. Losing weight!
