Is Summer Penis Really a Thing?

Regardless of whenever you are reading this – winter or summer, the information here is relevant for all seasons, trust us!

With summer comes the heat; with the heat comes more need for hydration. Sweating and drinking more water makes the body parts appear swollen in summer due to the body’s effort trying to regulate the temperature and the sexual organ is no exception.

Ever noticed the difference in your penis size during seasons?

Or how your shaft becomes a grower(longer) in summer and a shower(shorter) in winter?

Or maybe you haven’t noticed how long your boner gets in summer?

Well, men worldwide have reported cases of how fuller and longer their penises get in summer. We suggest you keep reading to find out how seasons and climate change affect your little man.


The phenomenon of the summer penis 

The term “summer penis” was coined by Journalist Tracy Moore, who extensively spoke about it in her Mel magazine article. According to Moore, the summer penis is a temporary fluctuation that “thanks to heat and warmth, gives you a months-long leg-up on shaft size,” Moore writes. “It’d be like if a woman’s boobs suddenly got huge from May to August.”(1)

Summer Penis refers to the phenomenon of male genitals appearing slightly larger, or fuller, in warmer weather (2).

There is nothing strange about your penis looking bigger because other parts of your body experience such changes during the heat.

Though it is temporary, the increase in size is noticeable when the penis is relaxed, not just when erect. According to Reddit users, during summer, penis erection is improved, making men enjoy the benefits of having a grower instead of a shower.

Though not a medical condition, there are medical pieces of evidence proving this common occurrence in men is a thing. Doctors around the globe confirm that there is such a thing as a summer penis, though it will not be written in any medical or science journal. 

So why then is it recognized by some doctors?


What do doctors say about the summer penis?

This claim is supported by many urologists, who associated this phenomenon with the fact that blood vessels tend to expand in summer to regulate the heat and contract in winter.

Brahmbhatta urologist in Florida argues that “Summer or winter, your penis size should remain the same. When it’s cold outside, your body does try to maintain its internal heat, and therefore things may appear to be more contracted.

When it’s cold outside, blood vessels near the skin contract to maintain the internal heat. However, this type of body heat regulation should not affect the overall size of your penis. It honestly makes so small of a difference you cannot measure it when it comes to length or girth.”(1)

However, Dudley Danoff, author of The Ultimate Guide To Male Sexual Health, believes ‘summer penis’ is all to do with Vasodilation, which is the widening of blood vessels (3). During summer, blood vessels dilate or expand in warm environments, which causes erectile tissue to enlarge to its maximum volume (1).

He supported this claim stating, “There’s a reason why people don’t take honeymoons to the North Pole. They go to Hawaii. There’s a reason why a hot tub is attractive for romance.”(3)

Dr. Jesse Mills, a director of the Men’s Clinic at UCLA, strongly suggests that hotter is better, stating clearly “that the warmer the environment, the more show a man is going to have” (4).

Most urologists see this influence of the climate as a temporal and an optical illusion. But that shouldn’t keep you from celebrating.


Take advantage of the summer

Though it is considered an optical illusion, that should not stop you from celebrating the heat-induced enlargement of your dick. So, we say enjoy the warm season. Take great advantage of the heat by :

  • Taking a summer vacation.
  • Visiting the spa; summer is a great time o give you some spa treatment. 
  • Basking yourself in all of that summer heat.
  • Grooming your pubic hair to give room for the display of your summer elongated penis.
  • Drinking a lot of water to stay hydrated and keep you bloated.
  • Avoid swimming in an ice-cold lake.

Despite the heat, summer provides you with the space to show off your manliness to your partner.


Is having a summer penis dangerous?

There are no dangers attached to it, so simply revel in the supposed allusion.

However, if you notice a swelling that is more than a seasonal fluctuation that is painful or discolored in your penis, you could be infected or have a kidney or heart disease. See a doctor ASAP.


Final words

Due to homeostasis (the ability to maintain internal stability to stimulus) of the body, we tend to consume more liquid to stay hydrated, which ends up making our body parts look bigger, including the penis.

Summer penis is not a medical condition; as such, it’s nothing to fret about. It’s simply your cock expanding due to climatic changes. This occurs in summer and drops when the temperature is low in winter.

Yes, the summer penis is real and something to celebrate. You get to have that pleasurable sex life and enjoy your alone time with your partner while basking in your nudity.

 So, if you have a summer penis, go ahead and flaunt your balls. Enjoy your nudity, feel sexy and pride yourself in it while it lasts because winter is always around the corner.

If you don’t, it’s okay. You’ve still got your penis. By the way, the summer penis makes no noticeable difference.
