We’re sure you’re well acquainted with your own todger, but most men worry that their manhood isn’t normal at some point.

This worry can be heightened when men start noticing chances in the apparence of their manhood.

But just like any other part of your body – the penis goes through some alarming changes as we age.

You may be healthy and active, but that doesn’t mean your penis won’t be experiencing these insane changes as you get older.

These are things that will – in all likelihood – happen to your manhood eventually.

 

1. It will drive you round the bend

If the penis is slightly curved or bent when erect, the chance is that there is nothing to worry about.

It is very common, so if it has always been like that, then the chances are it is completely normal.

However, if you’ve always prized yourself on your straight and sizeable manhood, you might be in for a shock.

Many men experience curvature in the autumn years. The penis can gradually start to bend due to repeated trauma from seemingly harmless activities.

There are certain sex positions that are more dangerous for your penis – girl on top is one of them.

Tiny injuries to the penis can cause a build up of scar tissue and this can pull the penis one way or the other.

Most of the time it is fine left untreated, but if it’s really bothering you there are injectable medicines to help reduce the scar tissue holding your penis on the wonk.

 

2. There will be permanent shrinkage

No man wants to hear this, especially if you’ve got a pretty small penis to begin with, but alas it’s true.

The average length of the erect penis is about 5.2 inches (13.2cm) in length and 4.6 inches (11.7cm) in circumference, and at normal temperatures a non-erect penis usually measures 3.6 inches (9.1cm) from tip to base and 3.7 (9.3cm) inches in circumference.

However, as men get older they experience a persistent and progressive loss of size.

This is because normal cells get replaced by non-elastic fibres called collagen, which just sort of reel in the whole apparatus.

Also as you age, your testosterone levels will decrease resulting in a slight but consistent loss in size.

And a lot of men tend to put on weight as they get older which can make your toddler look even smaller.

A simple trick to help make your penis look bigger is to exercise and eat healthily so you don’t put on fat around the pubic area.

“For every 30 pounds you shed, you add an effective half-inch in length,” Brian Steixner, MD, the director of the Institute of Men’s Health for the Jersey Urology Group, told Men’s Health.

 

3. Your bag may sag

As you age everything begins to sag – this is true of you manhood too.

Due to a loss of muscle mass, you will notice your scrotum will droop as you get older.

At its most extreme you might develop “splash down” syndrome – where your scrotum actually hots the water if you sit on the toilet.

However, you can have a procedure called scrotoplasty to tuck everything back up again.

 

4. You may experience Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is the inability to get and maintain an erection.

In the UK it is estimated that around half of men between the ages of 40 and 70 suffer from ED at some point in their lives.

The reason behind it boils down to blood loss.

“Having ED is like having a heart attack of the penis,” explains Steixner. “And preventing it involves pretty much the same advice you give to someone with a heart condition. Eat well, exercise—control those and you should be fine.”

Currently the most trusted ED product is Viagra, but it can take up to 30 minutes too work, which can really kill the mood.

 

5. The big C

Most men are familiar with the very real risks of prostate and testicular cancer, but you should also be wary of penis cancer.

Unfortunately as you get older the risk of all of these cancers increases, so make sure you know the signs and symptoms to look out for.

Catching cancer early could mean the difference between life and death.

  1. I’m in my 50s now. Even as a young teen I could never get fully erect and I’ve always been aware that my penis is much smaller than average. As I’ve gotten older both issues have increased. My wife and I have not even attempted sex in 15 years due to my issues. She says it just isn’t worth the trouble and prefers to get her sexual satisfaction outside our marriage. That leaves me with masturbation and male-on-male sex at the local adult book store.

    1. I know exactly how you feel Steve at 54 I have had no sexual interaction with my wife or anyone else for many years
      you are lucky in some ways that at least you can get satisfaction involving other people
      Unfortunately my tiny penis so rarely works that few people show any interest in it what so ever
      I suppose if I offered my open mouth someone may be inclined to fill it with their real mans cock
