Why 'Dad Bods' Are Not Ideal: How Having a 'Dad Bod' Can Affect Your Penis Size

Updated: May 30, 2023

how having a dad bod can affect your penis size

In 2015, a blogger called Mackenzie Pearson published an article talking about why girls love guys with ‘dad bods.’ Although she doesn’t claim to have invented the phrase, her article was shared over 300,000 times, and pretty soon, the idea that guys should have ‘dad bods’ had been picked up by conventional media outlets. This has led to the notion that guys could let themselves go had become a mainstream concept. Fast forward six years and the idea hasn’t gone away. Much like the collective waistlines of countless guys, the idea has just spread.

Body positivity has been a growing movement in recent years, and while it’s important to feel comfortable in your own skin, the concept that the ‘dad bod’ has become something to aspire to could have a detrimental effect on both your physical and mental health. Not only that but having a ‘dad bod’ will affect the size of your penis.

And yes, you heard that right. The more weight you put on, the smaller it will look in proportion to your body. Having a ‘dad bod’ will make you question “Why does my penis look smaller?”, or ‘how do I make my dick look bigger?’. You can shrug your shoulders all you want, but the obvious answer is to look at your general physical health first.

Now, let’s explore why the notion of having a ‘dad bod’ isn’t healthy, what you can do to improve your physical health to make your penis appear bigger, and how The Bathmate and The Phallosan Forte can give you additional confidence about your body image.

What Is a ‘Dad Bod’?

A ‘dad bod’ is defined as a ‘nice balance between a beer gut and working out.’ Essentially, it gives guys a blank check to eat an unhealthy diet, drink as much as they like, and neglect their physical health. Not only is the idea great for guys that don’t want to take good care of their bodies, but it also lets guys think that they’ll still be attractive to girls. Apparently, if a guy can rock a ‘dad bod’, he’s a keeper.

Lots of guys have been spurred on by the idea that girls might like them more if they’re carrying a bit of extra padding around the waist and chest. But there are some real downsides to subscribing to this idea.

We’re not suggesting that you need to spend all of your waking hours in the gym crafting the physique of an Adonis, but there’s certainly a strong argument against letting yourself slide into ‘dad bod’ territory.

While it might sound great to be able to eat as many slices of pizza as you like, piling on the pounds because you think that girls might find you more attractive will do you more harm than good.

Guys that carry weight on the front of their bodies are more likely to develop conditions such as diabetes (which may lead to Peyronie’s Disease) and Metabolic Syndrome. Poor physical health will also increase Triglycerides. All of this magnifies the risk of you developing high blood pressure, heart disease, or having a stroke.

It’s not just your physical health that will suffer as a result of having a ‘dad bod’. Your mental health may be impacted too. Wrestling with thoughts about your body image could lead to depression and anxiety.

But aside from the major health problems, you’ll also need to worry about erectile dysfunction. A build-up of cholesterol may lead to issues getting and sustaining a meaningful erection.

What Does Having a ‘Dad Bod’ Have to Do With Penis Size?

If you’ve got a flabby gut, chances are you’re carrying excess fat all the way down to the base of your penis. We mentioned earlier that you’ll most likely struggle with confidence issues about your body weight. But, you’ll also struggle with perceptual issues...aka ‘penis dysmorphia’ about the visible size lost from the extra weight in this region.

We all have a fat pad in our pubic region to a certain extent. The way that you can accurately measure the size of your penis is ‘bone pressed’ on the top side of your erect penis. If you’re a larger guy, you’ll most likely have a bigger fat pad.

So, if you have a larger fat pad, you’ll find that your dick will look smaller, particularly when you look at it in proportion to the rest of your body. If you have a penis with a 5.5-inch bone pressed length, this is going to look more like 4-inches when erect if you’ve got a ‘dad bod’.

By losing weight, your penis will appear bigger because you’ll have less of a fat pad in your pubic region. Not only that but your penis will appear larger in proportion to the rest of your body.

How Can You Avoid Developing a ‘Dad Bod’?

You don’t need to become a gym freak to not have a dad bod. However, there are plenty of basic things you can do to discipline yourself to become healthier and more trimmed down.

How Can You Avoid Developing a ‘Dad Bod’?

First up, address your diet. Avoid foods that are heavier in trans fats and sugars such as take-out meals, cakes, desserts, and sugary alcoholic beverages. These higher calorie food items will contribute to weight gain in all of the wrong places. You may also want to limit the carbs you take in and boost your protein intake.

As a general rule of thumb, try and eat as many vegetables as possible. If you’re eating meat, choose leaner meats such as chicken and grill it instead of frying it.

The next thing you’ll need to do is get more exercise. Even if you just try and walk more, it’ll help you lose some of your timber and help you get leaner. But you should certainly be trying to boost your cardiovascular activity if you want to lower your body fat. Consider taking up running, or a sport that is high intensity like combat sports, or cycling.

Once you’ve improved your overall physical health, if you’re still not satisfied with the length and girth of your dick, there are still some things you can do. We at BDEStyle recommend penis enlargement and male enhancement devices that actually work and give the results.

We are also advocates for P.E (penis enlargement) and have undergone this process to know that it works and continues to change the lives of millions of other guys.

We personally recommend checking out The Bathmate and The Phallosan Forte to really take your size to the next level. If you have a ‘dad bod’ and are working to trim down the extra weight, you’ll find that these two devices can help you build even more confidence. We call it big dick energy. Here’s what you should know about each device.

Bathmate And Phallosan Forte Combo To Increase Penis Size

The Bathmate is a great hydro pump that we love here at BDEStyle. It can be used while you shower or take a bath, which makes it the preferred pump among guys who are short on time. Regular and consistent pumping in the shower each day will help you see results over a period of time. Most guys see results after 2 months of use (but we recommend longer than this because results do vary).

The Phallosan Forte is a penile traction device that primarily focuses on length gains. This penis stretching device is the ‘lazy’ man’s enlargement tool. It’s also the most comfortable device to wear for longer periods of time giving you the most beneficial penis workout. Using this over the course of six months to a year will help you get additional permanent length. It can also be worn under clothes while you go about your normal day making your routine much easier for you to get the results you’re looking for.

Like anything in life, you will need to work at improving the size of your dick. If you want to see noticeable results, you’ll need to be prepared to put in the groundwork and use any of these devices regularly. But in the long run, it’s worth it and by using these devices to speed up your penis enlargement routine you won’t regret it.

And believe us when we tell you not to undermine the power of an additional inch or two in length and girth. We know what it’s like to be average and then go from average to big. You literally see both sides of the spectrum and you’ll see that adding these devices to your regime will add a whole new dimension to your bedroom experiences to come.

Want a Bigger Dick? Say NO to the ‘Dad Bod’ Fad

So, the bottom line is this gents, if you want your dick to look bigger, you’ve got to ditch the idea that a ‘dad bod’ is attractive.

This unhelpful myth will lead to you developing serious health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. While you may think that you’ll be more attractive to the ladies, the simple truth is that your dick will appear smaller as a result.

You owe it to yourself to take care of your body. Falling for fads because you think that girls may like you more could have a serious negative effect on your health and your life.

If you’re looking for ways to boost your penis size, really consider your diet and the amount of exercise you’re getting, and if it’s still an issue for you, we recommend that you grab the Bathmate and The Phallosan Forte or both to really make a difference in the bedroom.
