Penis Length: Showers and Growers

Penis Length: Showers and GrowersMen, are you a shower or a grower?

The terms refer to penis length and how it changes when a man has an erection.

A grower’s penis lengthens when it goes from flaccid to erect. But a shower’s penis length does not change much, if at all.

Most men are showers, according to a recent study in the International Journal of Impotence Research.

Scientists measured the penises of 274 men being treated for erectile dysfunction (ED). These measurements were taken during flaccid and erect states, and the team calculated the differences between the two. The median difference was about an inch and a half (4 centimeters), and the researchers used this benchmark to categorize men as growers and showers.
