Most men will obviously be interested in the answer to the question of average size of penis among men from most, if not all, countries.
The size, specifically the length and girth of the erect penis, matters to men because of the belief that size matters in sexual performance and satisfaction, if not prowess and popularity.
So, what exactly is the average penis size for men around the world? Let’s take a look at the scientific statistics so far.
Fast Facts On Penis Size
Let’s start with a few fast facts about penis size according to several scientific studies.
Keep in mind that these studies involved scientific measurements of thousands of penises, not your usual manner of judging your penis size by looking at it on the mirror or looking down at it while in its erect state or getting your fingers to do the measurements.
(Note: You will have a perception of a smaller penis when looking down at it from above or from the side than if you were looking down at it from below, as is the case with a woman – or man, for that matter – about to give a blowjob. It’s a matter of point of perspective.)
- Flaccid length ranges from 2.8 to 3.9 inches
- Flaccid circumference range from 3.5 to 3.0 inches
- Erect length range from 4.7 to 6.3 inches
- Erect circumference range from 4.7 to 5.1 inches
Even in studies where the men in the study measured their own flaccid and erect penises for length and girth, the results were still consistent with the above mentioned figures.
It must be emphasized, too, that penises come in two types – the growers and the showers.
Men with growers experience dramatic increases in their penile length and girth during an erection while men with showers usually have larger-than-average flaccid penises but the difference between their erect and flaccid penises are not as significant.
There are also variations in sizes among countries.
For example, men with Asian descent are more likely to have smaller penises than men with African and American descent but there are always exceptions to the rule, not to mention that even among the same country, men will have wildly varying lengths and girths of erect penises.
Male Measurement Of Satisfaction
Furthermore, men are harder on themselves, so to speak, than the women when it comes to penis size. In most studies on the matter, majority of women were satisfied with the erect size and proportion of their male partners’ tools but the men were less sure of themselves.
Almost half (45%) of men also believed that their penises are on the small side, appearances to the contrary notwithstanding. In a study published in the British Journal of Urology International, these men reported a small willy but it was actually a rare fact in the study!
Again, it’s often a matter of perception since most women will contradict their assertions.
The bottom line: Men care more about their penis size than women while women care more about sexual skills than penis size.
Plus, studies have also shown that women are more concerned about width than about length. This is not surprising as the first third part nearest to the entrance of the vagina contains all of the nerve endings responsible for pleasurable sensations.
Thus, a longer-than-average penis will go to waste, in a manner of speaking, even when it touches on the cervix.
Admittedly, there are cases when the penis is just too small. Researchers have determined that healthy adult men with a flaccid penis length of less than 1.6 inches or an erect length of less than 3 inches can be considered as having small penises.
Be sure to talk to your doctor about using penile enlargement procedures before adopting these methods so as to weigh the pros and cons. Plus, you should consider improving on your sexual skills since women appreciate these more than the size of your tools.
