The Difference between a Micropenis and a Microphallus

A reader of the site just send me an email, asking me if there is a difference between a micropenis and a microphallus.

Although most people and websites (including this one) often use the two terms interchangeably, the truth is they don't mean the exact same thing.

The micropenis term should be used to describe a really short but normally formed penis, like the one featured in the photo down below.

On the other hand, microphallus should be used to describe a penis that is both very small and also has some kind of morphological anomaly, like  hypospadias or epispadias.

Other Uses Of The Term
Microphallus is also a genus of parasitic trematodes (flukes) in the family Microphallidae.

  1. Wow... my penis is under 3 inches in length/erection and 1 to 1 inches soft/flaccid! I'm 61 years old! I have one testicle. which is my right. I'm still a virgin. The only person to see naked, was my dad (when he was living) only been in one relationship and was scared that she would see my tiny manhood/never had sex, with her. I always made excuses when sex was involved. Don't get me wrong. Sex would be nice. I'll be fine, sex is just a bargaining chip in any relationship. I'll probably die a virgin, which is fine. I recently retired from a good job. Thought about going to a nude beach! Wish me luck, in the future. Maybe get lucky, who knows

  2. Hi, Larry. I know it's been a while since you posted this, but I feel like I need to tell you something. You are f*ckable! Ok, perhaps a little TMI, here, but it's relevant. Through no choice of my own, since the age of 5,I have seen many penises. Yes, yours is a little smaller than average. However, the average woman wouldn't laugh at you or be turned off at all. Most that I've seen are about 4 and a little. The biggest, 10". OUCH! The smallest, 1.5". 2nd smallest, 2". The guy with 1.5 was too small for intercourse. The shaft was 1/2". I found other options to make it fun for him. Luckily, I really enjoy making a man have the other kind of fun, so that was enough for me to have fun, too. In short (no pun intended), a woman with a modicum of depth of character will have a tremendous amount of fun with you. If she needs more, that's what toys are for. A 3" penis, nimble oral skills, and a "marital aid" will knock the socks off of you both. Now, get out there and get yourself laid! You need to experience that.
