muscle loss
Apr 11, 2002

A lot of the male body builders looks like they have a small penis. How can one keep they're penis from getting smaller?

Response from Ms. Fields-Gardner

An interesting observation... And while the title of your query is "muscle loss" I don't think of that particular problem when you mention penis size.

One of the issues may be that with bulging muscles, those parts of the body that don't expand at the same time (poor nearly muscle-free penis) are likely to "look" smaller by comparison. Another possibility is the use/abuse of anabolic steroids which can reduce the size of the testicles in some cases lowering the total volume of the "package."
