Do You Have An Average Sized Penis?

Penis size is really a big issue, this is because not all penises are the same size. But statistically there is a normal/average penis size.

What is the average penis size?

A lot of researchers and scientists have tried on more than one occasion to try to give an answer to this big question, what is the normal size of the penis?  Here we will present you different data from several studies, with the objective of clarifying this question.

Main data on average penis size

We will explain in detail the main data you should take into account to understand this topic.  Statistically 85% of women are satisfied with the size or proportion of their partner’s penis. Although men feel less confident.Even 45% of men think they have a relatively small penis.In the vast majority of studies, the length of the penis when flaccid is between 2.8 and 3.9 inches.The length when the penis is erect, varies between 12 and 16 centimeters (4.7 to 6.3 inches).

What is the size of a “normal” or average penis?

Measuring the length of the penis is really simple, with a basic rule you have to press on the groin and it is measured from the base of the penis to the tip.  A study conducted by Journal of Urology researchers concluded that a group of 80 men had the following –

The average penis size was 3.5 inches (8.89 cm) when flaccid.With an erect penis the result was 12.9 centimeters (5.08 inches).

In addition to determining an average length of the erect and flaccid penis, the study also concluded that the size of the erect penis does not correlate with the size of the flaccid penis.  This means that when men have a below-average flaccid penis, they may have a size very close to average when they have an erect penis.  In other research that was published in 2014, more than 1600 American men were examined. Thanks to this research, an agreement was reached that the exact dimensions of an erect penis can be altered by the form of arousal.

What size is a small penis?

The threshold could be a clear and even better indicator of a small penis. The threshold is used by doctors to achieve penis enlargement.  Based on the same (and more reliable) research that was published in the Journal of Urology, where they studied 80 men with relatively “normal” penis size.   After they found the averages, they also came to the following conclusion:

Men who have a flaccid penis with a length of less than approximately 4 centimeters (1.57 inches) or an erect penis less than 7.5 centimeters (2.95 inches) are candidates for penis enlargement, because they are considered small penises.

Penis size: a problem for some

Men really do care, or in other words, they are more insecure because they think they have a small penis, and that they will not be able to give enough pleasure to their partner.  It should be noted that, looking at the penis from above, it can be noticed much smaller than looking at it from the front or from the side.  Looking at your own penis from this same perspective, and then making a comparison with others from a different perspective, could really cause confusion and even safety issues. So if you plan to compare it, it is important that it is from the same perspective.  Thanks to a study published in the British Journal of Urology International, it was determined that 45% believe they have a small penis. However, the researchers reported that having a small penis is neither common nor usual.

Women and Penis Size

Men’s main concern is whether their penis size is capable of giving their partner great sexual satisfaction. However, the lack of emphasis by women on penis length was surprising and sexual satisfaction overwhelmingly pointed to penis width.  One study in which about 170 women participated, gave their answers to various questions. In this study it was found that they did not place as much importance on the size of the penis.  As we know, the main problem for men is focused on the length of the penis, but women are more interested in the width.

Another study involving 50 sexually active college girls found that 9 out of 10 women prefer a much wider penis to a longer one.

Average penis size by different countries

Thanks to 16 studies conducted in different countries, an average size of the penis globally was achieved.  The length of the penis in its flaccid state is between 7 and 10 cm and its circumference between 9 and 10 cm.The length in the erect state is between 12 and 16 cm. And its circumference was about 12 centimeters.

In 2018 the average sizes penis was listed as being –

An average penis size of 8.8 cm (3.5 inches) when flaccid. An average penis size of 12.9 cm (5.1 inches) when erect.
