    A man's penis changes with age. In general, you can expect to notice certain shifts in the male reproductive organs, starting as early as age 30. The head of the penis may become paler and less purple in tone as a result of reduced blood flow to the area, or the overall color may not look as even as before. The penis may slightly decrease in size over time, losing an estimated half-inch in length and girth between a man's 30s and his 70s, according to some experts.
    Extra pounds around the abdomen may add the illusion of even greater shrinkage by hiding part of the penis under his belly, a problem that's easily remedied with weight loss. The diameter of a man's testicles also shrinks over the years.
