How can I overcome a small penis during sex?

Friction is an important part of what makes intercourse enjoyable for couples, by simultaneously stimulating the genitals (or anus) of both partners. Sometimes, couples desire more friction during intercourse to increase sensation and improve orgasm ability. Other times, men experience drop-out issues during intercourse because of a change in erectile function or a mismatched fit with a partner. The good news is that it’s easy to improve snugness during intercourse and boost both partners’ sexual satisfaction.

Female partners can use their pelvic floor muscles to squeeze around the penis during intercourse, which will add friction for both partners and is likely to additionally boost her arousal, by increasing blood flow to the area. A woman should make the same movement she does during Kegel exercises, which can be either quick pulses or longer contractions.

Certain intercourse positions encourage a better penile-vaginal fit, too, especially those that encourage grinding over thrusting. Men who think they are lacking in girth also can focus on G-spot stimulation by trying positions that encourage it.
