The Doctors are joined by Nick, a man who holds a brand-new title that most men would find very embarrassing. He is the 2013 winner of Brooklyn’s Smallest Penis contest.
After hearing about the contest from a local bar, Nick decided it was a once in a lifetime opportunity and entered. The contest was split into three parts: formalwear, talent segment and evening wear. While most men would shy away from such a competition, Nick says he's very confident in his body.
"Penis size does not dictate who you are as a man and what you can do," Nick adds.
Dr. Dudley Danoff, urologic surgeon and author of Penis Power: The Ultimate Guide to Male Sexual Health, examines Nick and offers an answer to Nick's question about his size. He says that since Nick is a heavy guy, the inches of fat protruding in front of his pubic bone hide his actual size and make his penis appear smaller. While losing weight would not cause his penis to grow, it would lead to the appearance of greater length.
A 2013 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine showed that the size of a man's penis depends on his genes, just like the size of his hands, feet and eye color. The study further stated that the average American man's penis is 5.6 inches long. Dr. Danoff adds that the penis stops growing when puberty is done.
