SEX TALK Ask Dr Angela: I'm worried my boyfriend's penis won't fit


Open-minded and practical, Dr Angela Brokmann has answered the nation's sex problems for 18 years. Here, she answers you dilemmas.

Dear Angela,

My boyfriend (22) and I (24) decided to have our first real sex soon. We've touched each other up many times but I'm afraid to go all the way because my boyfriend's penis is real big. It's almost 7 ½ inches when erect, I know because I measured it the other night.

My ex boyfriend was much smaller and we never had a problem in bed, but I'm afraid that my new boyfriend's penis won't fit due to its size.

Answer: At 7½ inches your boyfriend's penis is well above average, but when you become sexually aroused your vagina should expand sufficiently to fit it comfortably.

To make sure there won't be any hiccups, take a lot of time for foreplay and only proceed to intercourse when you feel ready for it. And keep lube at hand, just in case.

Dear Angela,

My best friend is dating a guy who has a 10-inch penis. At first I (21) didn't believe her, but then she showed me and the other girls some pictures. She says when they have sex, he can last much longer than other guys because he's so big. Is that true?

Angela says:

No, guys with a big penis can't last longer. How long a man can last does not depend on his penis size, but on completely unrelated factors like sexual experience.
