Tackling Koro, a False Small Male Organ Belief


Posted November 4, 2019 by man1health

Male organ health is more important than male organ size, but many men still worry about having a small male organ. In some cases, this is caused by koro, an irrational perception about manhood shrinkage.
 
What is a small male organ? Opinions vary, but it is now generally accepted that the average human male organ size when firm is between 4 and 6 inches. And typically, anything 3 inches or below (when firm) could be considered small. And the vast majority of men – probably about 95% – fall within the 4- to 6-inch range, meaning that the number of men with a truly small male organ is low. And again, having a small male organ does not mean a man does not perform well in bed, especially if he has good male organ health and is skillful with his equipment. But there are some men who suffer from a condition known as koro, a belief (almost always false) that their manhood is shrinking and/or that their average or large member is actually a small male organ.

GRS

Koro is also known by its medical name, genital retraction syndrome (GRS). Technically, either gender can suffer from GRS, except that in women, there is an irrational fear that their breasts are shrinking. If a man has koro, he typically not only believes that his manhood and sacks are shrinking but that they are doing so in such a manner that they will soon disappear altogether. Alternatively, he may believe that he is in danger of losing his manhood through some other method, such as having it chopped off or having a witch pluck it and abscond with it.

That last explanation may seem laughable, but in many cases, a man who has koro does believe that there is some occult action at work causing these supposed troubles for his member. Although koro has started being studied seriously only relatively recently, it has been around as an issue for centuries. And there have been instances – many more than originally known – in which koro inspires a “male organ panic,” in which masses of men come to believe that their member is in danger of being shrunken out of existence, cut off, or stolen.

Modern Day Issue?

Koro is thought to be less common in modern times, as fewer people nowadays believe in the occult and the supernatural than have in the past. However, it still exists and can still be a very strong and intense psychological illness for a person.

And it is a psychological or mental health issue. So, if a man does have a member that is actually shrinking – due to, say, his having gained a lot of weight and the manhood subsequently being partially buried in his fat pad – then he is not suffering from koro (unless he believes the shortened member is due to the supernatural). But if a man has a member that has not and is not shrinking but that he insists on believing really is, then he has koro and should seek out assistance from a mental health professional.

Treating Koro

So how is koro treated? It varies, depending upon the severity of the case and the specifics involved in the individual. Mental health counseling is usually involved; antidepressants or antipsychotics may be used as well, especially if the case is severe and is causing panic and/or anxiety attacks. Sometimes koro may be a symptom of a more expansive underlying mental health condition, and treating that condition may alleviate the koro issues.

Whether a man has a small male organ, believes he has one due to koro, or possesses a manhood of actual larger stature, he needs to take care of it by regular use of a top-drawer male organ health oil (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Look for an oil that contains vitamin B5 (also known as pantothenic acid), which is required for cell metabolism and the maintenance of healthy tissue. The oil should also contain vitamin D, the so-called “miracle vitamin,” which has proven benefits in fighting diseases and supporting healthy cellular function.
