Do girls overestimate their partner's penis size?

I've been with my girlfriend for seven months, and we have sex on a pretty regular basis. She's had a fairly experienced sexual past prior to me (so she's had penises to compare to me), but last night after we had sex, we were just BSing, and she asked if I had ever measured my penis. I had and told her I was probably about 6 1/2 inches, but she was surprised and said she thought I was bigger. I asked her how big she thought I was, and she said 7 1/2 or 8 inches, which, if you look at a ruler, is pretty long. Mind you, the girth is pretty thick, and I have a fairly thin/toned frame, so maybe that makes it look bigger. Still, I've seen and heard many girls mention their boyfriends/husbands being anywhere from 8-10 inches, but based on statistics (with the U.S. average being 5-6 inches), that shouldn't be as common as it seems. Are they just lying or bragging (possibly because the sex, regardless of size, is really that good), or are a lot of girls just unable to really gauge accurate penis size?

  • Most girls add an inch and a half to every guys penis they come in contact with. So say the last guy claimed to be 8 inches, but what was really 6 and a half. Then you come around and your 6 and a half, your now 8 inches in that girls eyes.

    Girls exaggerate, because most guys lie about their size. So anytime a girl tells you she took a 9 incher, just assume it was more like 7 and a half at best.

  • Of course they do.

    Most girls don't even know how to use a measuring device.

    I am above average but girls have exaggerated that I was 9inches when I'm 7.5. Either way any time a girl looks at my penis she is like wow that's big. Not trying to toot my horn just saying they don't know.

    • Of course they dont* id say 90% of you.

  • Well maybe its a combination of the eyeball measurements of penises and when you like someone you tend to make more of them in other ways as well as literally. I think people mainly notice when it is super small or super big.

  • i am horrible at making eyeball measurements, I'm just bad at in general, bot just when it comes to penis size. I don't even try anymore cus I always wrong. I don't know if all girls are like that though

  • Yes they do all the time. Go read any penis thread and look at the insane numbers mentioned.

  • 100% I have seen women and men say that their partner is 9-12' ... and in reality that is BS. Majority of men are between 5-6.5''... yes they're more.. but not as much as people think.
