Is this normal?

When my penis goes from flacid to erect it grows by x5.5 (5.5 times its flacid size, i've mesured) is this normal?, in porn the guys penis barely grows but mine erects up like a volcano which is really weird
It's completely normal. It's called being a 'grower not a shower'.

Please, don't use porn as a point of reference for how sex works/what bodies are supposed to look like. Remember, these people are paid because they are the absolute 'ideal', so don't compare yourself to them.

Sorry if I sound very defensive I don't mean to be

I feel like people say porn is unrealistic to stop teenagers being insecure about themselves, moreover even softcore homemade porn that isn't handpicked for best traits has guys penis's barely growing
I genuinely think my penis is different, I masterbait differently, my penis doesn't look the same as anything i've seen, I can only produce about a spoonful of semen and I can only do it once per 2 mins, its shape is also a bit weird as it looks more like a branch of a tree with viens and imperfections etc.

Everyone I know inc my friends and even in porn I only see x2 or x3 growth max, I don't really think you know how big x5 is, try getting a 500ml water bottle (thoes normal cosco bottles) 500ml x 5 = 2,500 ml which is 1 and a quarter of a 2L bottle, now compare the sizes, i've even googled official NHS diagrams of the erect cycle and the growth is no where near mine. But the thing is my erect penis isn't even that big its around 5.7 Inches which is below average for a UK male (I just copied my repsonse bc I made a duplicate post sorry)

I do wanna preface this and say I'm not a man, so I'm not speaking from specifically personal experiences. However, my boyfriend is also a grower.

So I can tell that you're quite concerned, which is also very normal, especially for people still getting accustomed to their bodies. Regarding porn, it isn't just something for teenagers; it's something for everyone to take with a pinch of salt. Porn is acting - even the homemade stuff is played up for the camera. And yes, maybe yours doesn't look like others, but that can be said for women too; they literally look wildly different.

The NHS diagram is an average of the population to try and be clear with what it's trying to show - it is in no way a perfect rendition of what it should look like. As I'm not a medical professional, I would say if you're genuinely concerned, go see a GP and enquire.
hi my penis does the same too
