Average Penis Length – What Is The Average Penis Size?

Since the beginning of time men from all over the world have worried about the size of their penis, or rather perceived lack thereof.

Men can suffer quite server emotional and physical consequences of believing they have a small penis, some men can become so concerned they avoid sexual contact altogether and become as good as impotent.

What Women Think

The good news is most women don’t care, or at least that’s what they say, with an online survey in 2005 reporting that 55% of men were happy with the size of their penis and 85% of women saying they were happy with their partner’s size. In general women are more concerned with the width of the penis (girth) as this provided more sexual pleasure than length.

Measuring The Penis

Measuring the penis correctly is important, most men under estimate the size of their penis due to incorrect measuring technique.

Measurements should be taken at different times of the day even in different weather conditions as this can have a huge bearing on the size of the penis. Once this information has been collected an average is taken by totaling the lengths recorded and dividing by the number of days that measurements were recorded

Penis length is measured by standing and measuring the distance from the base of the penis to the top of the head, this must be done on the top side of the penis and whilst it is held out parallel to the floor, this is done when the penis is in an erect state.

So how do you measure up? Take a look at the charts below that show both average penis length and average penis girth (width)

Average Penis Length

As you can see from the above charts, the penis size of the majority of men is between 15 and 18cm when erect (6 – 7inches). Interestingly there seems to be no evidence that height or race has any significant correlation on a man’s penis size, in fact in the research preformed by Masters and Johnson, the largest non-erect (flaccid) penis was measured at 14cm (around 5 inches) from a Caucasian male standing 5’7 (approx 170cm).

So what can you do if you don’t measure up? Or would like to be in the top 10% percentile, so you can have bragging rights in the change room or provide some visual wow factor for your partner? well there are a number of treatments but only one is really effective.

  • Pills for increasing penis size: a complete waste of time, no evidence to suggest these work at all
  • Penis enlargement exercises: also known as Jelqing, little to no value, will increase the function of the penis and one exercise in particular (kegels) can help develop good pc muscles (the muscles you use when you stop peeing mid stream, or twitch the penis) and help maintain the health of the prostate.
  • Penile suction devices: little evidence these work at all other than for short periods immediately after using them, can also cause nerve damage
  • Penis Stretchers: adjustable harnesses you wear under clothing that keeps you penis in a stretched state for prolonged periods of time, some good results with these devices have been recorded and they are gaining more acceptance in medical circles with people reporting increases of over an inch with some cases even reporting up to 4inches in length! The cost for these devices runs from around $150 – $250. A review of such a device can be found here
