It is absolutely normal

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

The increase length of penis during erection depends on the level of stimulation and variation of 1-3 cm is normal for most of men. In other words it can be stated that it is possible that you get adequate stimulation during sex which makes difference for you.

You may argue that I get adequately stimulated during masturbation too, but I must make it clear that it is not under your conscious control and penis responds better when you have chance for intercourse in compare to masturbation.

I hope this answers you.
Feel free to write back to me if you have more questions.
Thanks again.

thats what i feared.. because i thought in masturbation that this is the longest i can go.. but in sex, it proved otherwise.. maybe because of sexual stimulations.. So having an erect size of 5.2 is normal right? and almost everyone faces the longated length during sex right?

Dear XXXX,
Thanks for follow up.

Yes it is normal to have 5.2 inch penis while erect and almost everyone have slight difference between the erect penis for masturbation and sexual intercourse.

I hope this helps you further in clarifying.

Brief Answer:
I think it is is already explained

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX,
Thanks for follow up.

I like to draw your attention to my first answer where the reason for differential lengthening is mentioned. Regarding the process it is believed that the presence of sex partner further dilates the blood vessels responsible for erection in more elaborate manner resulting in more lengthening.


I hope this answers you further.
