There is a famous episode of the sitcom, Seinfeld where the character George Costanza literally gets caught with his pants down. Actually, it was his swimsuit following exposure to cold water. In case you were wondering this unfortunate function is caused by the sympathetic nervous system.
But can your penis actually get smaller without help from freezing water or a cold breeze? The answer is just as frightening as a flaccid penis and that answer is, kinda. In fact, there is also a medical term for a fully-erect penis called, tumescence.
So, besides a cold shower what else could lead to penis shrinkage? Well, erections are fueled by blood flow which can wane a bit as you get older and also impact the production of testosterone. Guys with heart disease, diabetes, and thyroid conditions could be seeing changes in the length of time they can hold an erection, not the actual size.
If you are concerned there are some simple steps you can take to combat every guy’s worst nightmare. For starters, hit the gym. Exercise is good for your heart, blood flow, and testosterone.
