It's unusual for teenage men to be fully out pf puberty: puberty, for most people, goes into the 20's.

Penis growth is part of those changes, so it may be that your penis continues to grow or change, but it also may be that it does not. It's one of those things where you'll just have to see what happens.

Just FYI, average penis length is usually found to be somewhere between 5 and 6 inches.

Penises in pornography are generally larger than everyone's, since most porn is made for MEN, and it's men who idealize penis size most, not women. So, men in porn are often cast based in part on penis size because that's what men want.

In the same vein, women in pornography don't generally look like women in real life, either. Hopefully you have no expectations of your female partners, for example, having breast implants, waxed vulvas, expensive lingerie, a tan, a fresh manicure (or, for that matter feeling satisfied by the kinds of things actresses pretend to be satisfied by in porn).

How about you give any given girl the benefit of the doubt of assuming she's intelligent enough to know media from reality? You might also want to bear in mind that, again, this is really an issue with men: most heterosexual women either have no interest in larger-than-average penises or have no prefences about penises.

If a sexual partner or potential partner doesn't seem to understand the difference between fantasy and reality, then you can be pretty sure they're not ready yet to be anyone's sexual partner and simply walk away, choosing only partners with that maturity.

Hey, i'd just like to say that i'm the same size as you, and i was also shy to show my girl. But when it came down to it I didn't care because I KNEW I was the average size, and i am very grateful that I am not under average. So I just pulled it out, and she loved it [Wink]

I'd just like to add that my boyfriend is on the smaller side and I think his penis is great, both the way it feels and the way it looks, size really doesn't matter.

Always knock before entering my room when I am in there alone, as I may be doing all sorts of wonderfully thrilling things that I'd rather you didn't see.

Im agreeing with everyone above, penis size REALLY doesn't matter, wether they're big or small, it'll feel the same. [Smile] So don't worry, be proud of what you have!

For me, it actually doesn't feel the same, but that doesn't mean one size is better than another - everyone has their own preferences (or no preferences at all), just like people have personal preferences regarding breast size, butt size, overall size, or anything else regarding appearance and feel.

And, at least in my experience, how much I like a guy's penis usually has a lot more to do with how much I like HIM - so if a girl likes you, she's unlikely to criticize the size of your penis and instead accept it - and hopefully embrace it - the way it is, just like you would hopefully accept and embrace physical aspects of a girl you really like.
