Some Sexual Ergonomics

It occurs to me that part of the reason there seems to be so much confusion about penis size is people are talking about different ways to measure. The surveys which have come up with an average penis size of 5.3 – 5.5” measure by laying a ruler against the pubic bone on top of the penis, not on the side or bottom where the result would be longer.

For women trying to estimate their man's size it might help to know the average woman's hand is 2.9” across the palm so with both hands stacked on the penis average would be a finger width less than your stacked hands.

For girth the average woman's grip span is 5.6” from thumb to index finger tip (6.1“ thumb to middle finger tip). The girth of the average penis is 4.6” so you would be able to get your had around it easily, to about the first joint on your finger.

Just a few more curious facts. The average penis at 5.5” long and 4.6” around would 'displace' a volume of 9.3 cubic inches. A penis in the 99th percentile at 7.5” long and 6” around would 'displace' a volume of 21.5 cubic inches. An organ as described by many people on this site as being part of their experience say 9” long and 7” around would have a volume of 35 cubic inches or four times the average.

To convert these to liquid measures for better visualization the average size penis is five ounces, a bit more than half a cup. The 99th percentile one is twelve ounces, the volume of a can of soda. The one described by so many on this site is 20 ounces or about the volume of a pint of milk plus the volume of the average size penis (to you Brits it would just be an ordinary imperial pint)

I hope this puts things in perspective.

  • Yeah... but I don't think measuring penises is that important actually. I'd say it is better to focus on being good lovers rather than try to determine how long/wide their penises are.

  • Laying a carpet is... very much like making love to a beautiful woman. You check the dimensions, lay her out on the floor, pin her down, walk all over her. If you're adventurous - like me - you might like to try an underlay.
