What is the actual average penis size?

What is the actual average penis size? All this stuff confuses me with size when he's soft and when he's hard are different right. I always hear women say 8'' penises blahs blah blah. My boyfriend is probably around 5'' and I'm completely satisfied with him. Its prefect to work with for bj and sex.

  • Its hard to know exactly. Size is almost always quotes as 'erect' because there's no 'fixed' non erect size for men. Depending on temperature etc it varies, whereas their erect size is more consistent.

    Now if you're going to do a study, you run into a few problems. First of all, who is going to do the measuring? Evidence suggests men measuring themselves are a little ... generous. So you'd rather someone else measure.

    Now how do you persuade men to participate? There is a general (probably well founded) concern that if you announce you need volunteers for a penis measurement study, small men may NOT be that excited about dropping their pants for someone to measure, and may avoid it.

    Next, how do you generate the erections? Are they at 100%, or are they nervous? Some (small) studies gave the men a drug that physically triggered erection.

    Generally studies that involved researchers doing the measurement have come in with an average of over 5", but under 6". Quite a few were closer to 5", though the biggest study I'm aware of came in just under 6". That one was done with volunteers in cancun, and there is some thinking that it may have 'missed out' on more smaller guys who avoided the study.

  • HA! yeah...I am not "well-endowed" only 5" and, while not a "pencil-d***" not very big around either..it would in no way shock me to find out that some females failed to hit on me because of that...but almost all of the females I did have sex with wanted (or were willing) to have sex a second time...when I was your age we used to have a saying "it's not the size but what you do with it that counts" That said..there ARE females who are naturally large..or maybe they had a lot sex with guys who had hefty beef? I honestly do not know the answer to that...but those girls probably really do need bigger...(:(:(:

  • It really doesn't matter.

    The best sex I ever had was with one of my exs and he actually had the "smallest" penis of everyone I had ever had sex with and I mean he was "small", I don't know the size but it doesn't really matter.

    I've slept with a guy who's penis was at least twice the size and he was much worse.

    As long as (and this is advice for you guys reading this) work on trying to please your girlfriend, than it really doesn't matter how big your penis is, pay attention to foreplay, ask your girlfriend what it is she likes/enjoys, research the erroneous zones etc.

    Foreplay is where most guys fail at sex, you guys don't understand that foreplay is like the absolute most important thing for most girls, without it it's very difficult to orgasm.

    However I've taken this slightly off-topic, but either way from my experience, I imagine that 5-6" is probably the average.

  • I would say about 6" is average, but I'm with you girl. My guy is about 5" and I have no complaints whatsoever. Above-average guys are overrated.

  • The average is about 5.4" in the US, with upwards of 80% of men being within an inch either way (4.4-6.4"). In real life, an 8" penis is rare, being around one in 100,000, and 9" and above is one in 1,000,000.

    Of course, going by what guys self-report here, every guy in the Top 2% of penis size uses this website, because everyone here is 7" minimum... LOL.

  • Yeah its about 5 & half inches. It's really not that long. But so many guys (and girls) like to inflate the size of their penis or boyfriends penis, respectively, for the sake of boosting their ego. Any time some guy says he has an 8 inch penis I'm immediately skeptical because only about 1% of men have a penis that large. 90% fall into the 5-6 range.

  • The stranded American penis size is 5" and some men are bigger.

    <-----8" no lie

    Some women like smaller ones Some like them bigger depends on your preference and what you are comfortable with

  • If big penises exist, so do big vaginas.

    Most penises will work perfectly fine with most vaginas. The average size is eh, 5.5-6 inches. That size looks like a baby penis compared to some of these male p*rn stars though.

  • something like 5 or 5.5 inches long.

    this might not be true but women might be saying 8 because that's what men tell them or the women are "bragging" that's what the average penis size men they've been with is.

  • link

    I think the data this map uses is pretty accurate, as you can see, the averages are pretty "low".

  • average is about 6 inches in real life and about 8 inches on the internet.

  • Okay the actual average penis size is around 5.5 inches in length and about 5 inches in girth.

  • I would say around 6 - 6.5 when erect.

  • 10 x 7 is average

  • good day, bad day, every day average I'm honestly 7" and even I still would like to gain an ~inch length & ~.5 around. its just the way guys are. guys just want something they have to be just a little bigger and better than what they have...cars, house, boat, tv, computer, phone, deer they killed, fish they caught, whatever. so it leads to one upping for everything and that's where d*** inches came from.

    real average I've heard girls say anything from 5-9 being their average. friend who works in a hospital & went through med school says 5-5.5 is the real medical average. everybody is bigger & better on the internet than in real life. fwiw 95% of girls have no idea and suck at estimating size or they actually believe what a guy tells them for size. so that's where all the 8"+ d***s come from

  • interesting thoughts on the map that often shows up here

    link

    this has an easy to follow break down and you can compare

    link

  • probably like 5 and a half inches

  • Between 5-6 inches is average. 8 inches and up are pretty rare yet every girl has had them and usually more than one. Strange, innit?

  • They say the average is 5.2" length and 4.9" girth. I'm not sure though.

    answer my question please? link
