What Age Do Men Stop Growing Down There?

It’s kind of hard to discuss height and growing restrictions without talking about penis size. So what is normal? What age do men stop growing down there? And is there anything you can do to have a say in the matter? While our main focus was looking at height and controlling vertical growth we used to get a lot of questions about this so our team has put in the research time. We have the stats, we’ve done the research and we know what you can do to work your way around some of the limitations.

So first up…

What Age Do Men Stop Growing Down There on Average?

Well, it shouldn’t be a surprise to you that the male body grows during puberty. It’s the same with height – your penis size (mostly) increases during puberty as that is our basic human DNA setting. So between the ages of 10 to 14 is the average although keep in mind puberty is different for everyone. Some men might start earlier (the early side of things tends to be around 12/13) or later (18-20ish). There’s no way for anyone online to accurately tell you and these puberty calculators are based on these averages anyway.

As with height, your penis growth will start to slow down as you reach the end of puberty and most of us will stop by the end of puberty. If you do nothing else that’s it and you’ll have your full growth by then. As with height it usually happens in spurts instead of a sustained consistent growth and most of us will have full adult growth by the age of 16.

But keep two things in mind before you start comparing yourself to others here:

  • Everyone is different. This isn’t some “feel good” nonsense I’m just piling on here. We’ve done the legwork and the range is massive on this. You’ll likely have an idea by 16 but some (less than most) will continue to grow from there.
  • There are things you can do to further your growth. Don’t get too bogged down worrying about what age do men stop growing and focus on what you can do about it.


Normal Penis Size and Height

I’ve probably lost track of the number of times we get asked about this.

It usually goes “What age do men stop growing”.

I would answer. But regardless of whatever I would say…

“What is the average size?” or “Am I average?”

Well, the studies are in folks. It varies from country to country where some countries just tend to grow more than others but on the global average:

average growth age

So that’s it folks. The average is 5.1-5.6 inches long. You might be above or below but by definition you’re likely to fall somewhere in that area. You might have had to work to get it in that range or maybe you’ve worked your way above it. Or maybe you’re just lucky and you’re already above it (not that this should stop you from doing more)! But at the end of the day does it matter? While you worry so much about what age do men stop growing down there (keeping in mind stress is one of the inhibitors of growth) – does it actually matter?

Well according to polls carried out online (where let’s be honest, women are more likely to answer honestly and not in front of a group or camera) size does actually matter. This was carried out with a pretty fair mix of married, single and dating women so we get a pretty good idea of the stats here.

According to the stats, 75% of women say former lovers were larger downstairs than their current partners.

4% have turned down intimacy because it was too large. 35% have never considered size when making a choice but a whopping 61% have dumped someone because it was too small.

And 75% of respondent women say size and girth matters. That’s more than a small percentage guys.

And a whopping 81% would choose an average looking guy who was bigger down there over a lot man who was small. Size matters. The numbers (of women) have spoken.

So we feel pretty confident in saying it matters. And generally, those who want to know what age do men stop growing want to know because they’re hoping for a little more growth. Don’t worry – these are just the default numbers if you do nothing about it.

But while we’re talking stats and numbers we need to look at exaggeration stats. An average is an average for a reason which means everyone you hear boasting numbers is statistically likely to be lying.

So in order:

  • Canadians actually downplay the size by a small percentage. You guys are humble.
  • Irish guys play their penis size down even more. The element of surprise I guess?
  • Roughly 4% of men from the United Kingdom was caught exaggerating about their size.
  • That has nothing on the 8.3% of guys from the USA who were caught out with some massive size differences.
  • And in Australia, almost 18% of guys were caught out. They were also (anecdotally) said to have to smallest sizes.

What Age do Men Stop Growing Down There if They Do Something About it?

Aah, now we’re talking!

There are plenty of less than useful resources like this which are great for telling you that you can’t do anything to change your size. I mean they have some great info behind them on averages and stats. Plenty of feel-good messages about accepting yourself for who you are and all that jazz. But they’re all talk and no action. All bark no bite.

We take the same approach as we did weight height. When we first started looking at what age do men stop growing we didn’t like the answer. OK, more accurately the other guys were willing to accept it at first but I didn’t like the answer so we worked to get around it. Small changes at first but my height these days is a testament to what you can achieve.

Honestly, penis size is the same thing. There is plenty you can do to work on it. I’m not saying there’s a magic pill which will do everything for you overnight.

But with this you can start making changes yourself.

Don’t get me wrong there is plenty of nonsense out there. Some of the crazy claims I’ve seen have made me laugh over the years. But that doesn’t mean I should dismiss everything else. If you’re worried about what age do men stop growing down there then take the numbers and do something with them. Don’t settle for a size you don’t want.
