The size of the penis is a matter that worries some, especially when it comes to penetration, since they consider that this aspect directly influences the pleasure that can be given to the partner or couples. It’s an idea that, in large part, has come from porn, where movies show that the bigger the penis, the more enjoyable it is, which has made many obsessed with measurements and felt insecure, although, in practice, size is not as important as you might think.

And, luckily, sexual pleasure is much more than the penis, there are foreplay or oral sex, which are basic practices to make sex more exciting. But if we are looking for penetration, we can try different sexual positions for small penises that achieve more depth regardless of size.

What is the average penis size?

First of all, you have to know that size is very relative. That is, a person can think that his penis is very small and feel insecure about it when in reality his size is perfectly normal. That is why it is convenient to know what is the size of the penis that is considered average.

To answer this question, psychiatrist David Veale, Professor at King’s College London and Consultant Psychiatrist at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, and his team compiled and synthesized the results of 17 medical studies on penile size conducted with the participation of more than 15,000 people around the world to establish what is the average size of the penis worldwide. The result, published in the British Journal of Urology, reveals that the average size of the flaccid penis is 9.16 cm and the erect one is 13.12 cm.

This information can help dispel all the myths surrounding penis size and encourage people to enjoy their sexuality and sexual encounters much more. In addition, even if the size of your penis or that of your partner is a little less than this average, it does not mean that you cannot enjoy or make yourself enjoy. There are plenty of positions for small penises that achieve deep penetration, regardless of size.

Best sexual positions for small penises

These are some of the most recommended sexual positions for small penises, because they achieve deeper penetration or greater clitoral stimulation in the case of heterosexual intercourse, which helps to guarantee enjoyment. Take note!  

The doggy

Also known as on all fours or on all fours, this is undoubtedly one of the best known and most popular sexual positions. It consists of one person in the couple getting on all fours with their legs apart so that the penetration is done from behind, which guarantees maximum depth. Whoever penetrates can use his hands to caress the different erogenous zones and get even more pleasure, while setting the pace of penetration for an intense encounter.

Legs up, a missionary variant

There are many ways to make the missionary more exciting, for example, resorting to one of its variants, like this one that we explain below. The person who is going to be penetrated must lie on his back, placing his legs on the shoulders of the person who is penetrating, so that the penis can reach further inside, guaranteeing greater depth.

However, this may not be a very comfortable position for whoever is below, so you can alternate it with any of the other sexual positions for small penises that we recommend.  


In this case, the person who stands on top does so with his back to the one who is lying down, who is the one who penetrates. As with the dog, not only can there be a deeper penetration, but the hands are free to caress the sensitive areas that you want.

Standing and behind

There is no doubt that positions from behind offer deep penetration that is ideal for small penises. For this reason, if you want to vary the doggy style, you can opt for a penetration from behind, but standing up, in which the more forward the person being penetrated leans, the deeper it will be.

A trick? Let the person in front lean on a table, bed or any other lower surface to have a better angle and enjoy more.

Stimulating missionary

Another variation of the ideal missionary to make sex very pleasurable is not so much to offer deep penetration as to help stimulate the clitoris, which will make the encounter very satisfying for her. In this case, everything is the same as missionary, but during penetration the person with a penis should close his legs as much as he can so that the penis touches the clitoris more when penetrating her… satisfaction guaranteed!

The condom as an ally to enjoy sex more

Regardless of the position you choose, do not forget that the most important thing is your safety to avoid the spread of any sexually transmitted disease (STD) or an unwanted pregnancy, if it is a heterosexual relationship. The condom is the only contraceptive method capable of preventing the transmission of sexual infections between 80-90% (2). In addition, among all the condoms that exist, you can choose the ones that help you intensify the pleasure. For example, try Durex’s range of slim and extra-slim condoms. They are condoms that maximize contact, without compromising your safety.

Another good option are stimulant and retardant condoms, such as Durex Mutual Climax, with a relief of dots and grooves that helps accelerate their climax, and PerformaTM lubricant with 5% benzocaine that helps delay their ejaculation, or Durex Intense condoms, with points, grooves and a stimulating gel that provides sensations of heat, coolness and tingling.
