Brief Answer:
It is a natural .Nothing to to be worried about .

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .

Penis becoming more rigid and long during sex is mainly due to penile stimulation and psychological impulses resulting from audio ,visual sensation received from female partner resulting in to increased flow of blood to erectile tissue causing hard erection and increase in length of penis .Where as these stimuli are lacking while masturbating hence the penis though becomes hard does not increase in length .

This is natural phenomenon .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

See my flaccid length is 6.6cm when i masturbate.. the length goes to 11.2 cm and becomes hard but when i have sex it reaches up to 12.8cm approx.. so my main question is that why a sudden increase in length because whenever i masturbate i feel that this is the highest length i can reach up to.. so this is why i have been asking that how a sudden increase in length during sex because during masturbation it seems that this is the highest length u can reach upto.
