Whether you’re a ‘shower‘ or a ‘grower’, the truth is it really doesn’t matter.
For as long as the internet has been a thing, there has been plenty of conversation among young men about penises. And that debate has often focused on whether it’s better to be a ‘shower’ or a ‘grower’?
A ‘shower’ is defined as someone who has a large flaccid (soft) penis, while a ‘grower’ is someone who has a small flaccid penis that grows larger when blood rushes into it during an erection.
But here’s the spoiler alert: it doesn’t matter either way, as ultimately the size of your penis does not have an impact on how good you are at sex.
What is more, every penis is as unique as a fingerprint. Penises can curve left, they can curve right, they might have no curve at all, they may be circumcised, they might not be, they could be thin, they can be thick.
And you know what, there’s nothing unusual about any of these descriptors. Check out the good people over at Brook Sexual Health – they know a thing or two about penises for further reassurance.
Your sexual partner probably doesn’t care whether you consider yourself to a shower or a grower either, and if they do, well then hey, maybe you’re sleeping with the wrong person?
After all, the difference we’re talking about is a matter of nano-seconds; the time between a penis being flaccid to one being erect. In fact, it can take less time to get erect than it can to say “Hey, do you prefer a ‘shower’ of a…” In sum, it’s likely you’re thinking about it WAY MORE than anyone else.
So, through all the changing room and online debate about it all, just try and remember one thing: sex is about connection, not the size of your penis. Believe.
