I am 17 and my penis is 5" long. My girlfriends past boyfriend had a 7-8" penis. We have not had sex yet but we will soon. She loved her previous boyfriends size and I was wondering if she feel feel a major difference between ours. Will she get less pleasure from mine?

I was also wondering if my penis will still continue to grow? It seems like I have the smallest penis out of everyone I know.

5" is actually pretty average, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. (Too, unless you're going around with a tape measure and measuring all of your friends' penises, which I would ask their permission for first, then you really can't know how big their penises are. People lie about size all the time. Heck, I lied about my breast size in high school plenty of times.) We certainly can't know if you will continue to grow. That's determined by genetics.

Have you heard that saying, "It's not the size of the boat that matters, but the motion of the ocean"? The vagina can expand or contract depending on how aroused a woman is or to fit a baby through it. Also, there really aren't a whole lot of nerve endings past the entrance to the vagina, so size really isn't going to make too huge a difference. Know also that no two people will fit together the same way, so you both may find that different positions work for the two of you together than did for either of you with your past partners. The key is to experiment until you find positions that work for both of you. And keep in mind that intercourse is not the only kind of sex out there. There are several other types to try and experiment with.

5" is still normal and really close to the average. Can it still grow? Yeah it can, but I can't guarantee that for you.

I think what really matters here is not the penis, but the person attached to it. One of the great things about having a new partner is that you get to find out what works for you as a couple. What might have been great about one of your previous partners may totally be off the slate now that you're with someone else.Not that we totally abandon all of our old interests. But i'm saying that hey, if you've got a good relationship with openness, honesty and communication, I'm sure you both can find something delightful and satisfying.
