    The gym I go to now has a single-room gang shower. Since most of the 20s/30s guys are too afraid to use it, I most often end up showering with guys in their 50s-70s. It's actually more comfortable since they are very at easy being naked in the gang shower and I can easily have conversations with them.
    One thing I've noticed, however, is that more than half of them have dicks so small that they barely poke through their pubic hair. 1" soft certainly can't be the average penis size among males, so I started to wonder, is it common for a dick to shrink as one enters the golden years? Just curious. If so, I guess I want to make the most of the time when mine is still of ok size!

    Yeah it is quite common, it's usually because they're older, their skin sags and just droops down generally, also I suppose with them probably not getting so many erections as they're older. The skin isn't used to being stretched?

    That's my theory anyway haha!

    My urologist told me that all males will shrink somewhat as they age. In my case, my 8" plus is now is now a 7" minus. I am one of LPSG's older members. Everything still works but there is not as much to work with.

    I have noticed that there is a little less meat underneath the skin, and the skin is just a little bit more wrinkly. I think most of the length loss is from fat gained on the abdomen, not penis shrinkage.
    In some of the pictures in here, it looks like a young man's penis, and an old man's hand.

    Well, I think you should make the most of your dick now, regardless. But I don't think you have to worry too much about losing it later. I was fully developed to 8" long when I reached 16 years, and now at 75 I still get it up to that size (with the use of Viagra to keep it hard until ejaculation). But seeing an older man's penis flaccid is different. First, I'm in good physical condition, with no fat and a trim body, so when my penis hangs soft, about 3 to 3-1/2" shows. It isn't shrunken but it is flabby. After so many years of swelling to hard and then reducing to soft, the skin flexibility changes so the stretched shaft skin doesn't contract tight again like it did in the younger years. So I have a little build-up of wrinkled shaft skin just behind my glans when flaccid, but that goes completely tight when I get aroused and my penis gets wonderfully full-sized again. So use it or lose it...aging won't diminish the size or the pleasure.

    Thanks for all the replies, especially from the senior guys. Now that it was mentioned, yeah, most of the really small ones I've seen have belonged to guys with very pudgy abdomens, so I guess it is also a question of the base getting lost in the extra fat.
    So, the lessons I'm seeing here so far are stay lean and don't get too many erections in the younger years since it will cause the skin to stop shrinking back. Ok, I promise to make full use of every erection I get to every extent possible! :tongue:

    most old people have high blood pressure that's why



    lower the blood pressure the more blood the penis can hold on to....


    it also depends on how strong your PC muscle is since it controls it




    right now if I wanted to I can get a full boner
    since I am not stressed out or anything

    my resting heart rate is 60-65 bpm

    but if i am stressed out my heart rate is might higher around (resting heart rate)96-120bpm or so

    making it only possible to get a semi hard boner

    Decreasing hormone level could shrink a dick. That's why a lot of old people carry Viagra or Cialis in their wallets.

    Well Guy's. I am 66 and mine has not shrunk at all. Still a mighty 8 inches. I do make sure that it gets used every day, and every morning I do 50 jelques in the shower.

    My penis hasn't shrunk with age; it is as big as it was in my youth. My erections remain hard just as long and my sexual appetite hasn't deminished in the slightest!

    I'm in my 64th year, and my erect penis is as long as ever, and I really think I've gained girth over the years. Before I enter the showers at the gym, I do a little "fluffing" - believe that's what it's called. If I had tried that when I was young, I would have had an instant erection. So I believe my penis looks pretty good in the showers around the younger men. I also try to keep my weight down. But I know what you mean, buzzrider7, and then there are the older men who don't keep their pubes trimmed - nothing worse looking, in my view, than an old man whose bush needs a little attention.

    I think you see what appears to be a decrease in size when you start putting on weight. Alot of men gain weight the older they get and that area above your cock gets a "pooch". Generally the leaner that area is the longer your cock appears. Key word being "appears". It is that same length either way. I was informed by an older friend of mine that after he had his heart surgery he had lost alot of his sex drive. He said he went a long long time without wanking or even really getting a hard-on. After he complained to his doctor about the issue he was put on Androgel due to a testosterone deficiency. He said it seemed as though his dick had shrunk as well. After getting back into the swing of things it eventually got back to normal. I would venture to say "it goes away when not kept in play". I am totally speculating on that last part though it seems logical.

    As you age you definitely develop a fat pad between your navel and dick. When you're a teen and 20 something you don't have this. So those guys in your gym might well have had 5 or 6" hanging there when they were 18 but now at 55 or 60 and the owner of a beer belly, that 6" is seen only as 3". The other 3" is still there, just behind the fat pad.

    At nudist campsites I have seen really fat guys whose penises have totally disappeared into the belly fat. All that is seen is a pair of balls with a hole above. That is good reason to keep trim.

    I am into my 60s and my flacid penis has not reduced at all. I don't use Viagra but have 110 blood pressure and low heart rate because i am fit. My erections are not quite as hard as they used to be, so my erect length has reduced from a bit over 9" to about 8.5". I expect that it would increase again if I took Viagra.

    I'm late 50's, and it hasn't shrunk. I haven't gained weight. my erections are not as full sometimes, sometimes they are. when in doubt, I pop a Cialis and the wife gives me, "you still got a big dick for an old bastard."
