Can you handle the truth? A study published in BJU International gives new insights to penis size worldwide and now you can decide if you measure up or not. They studied more than 15,000 Penises around the world. The research was designed to determine the average of penis size by a health professional using a standard measurement procedure.
According to the results the average erect penis is around 5 inches (13 centimeters) and when flaccid the average penis is about 3.61 inches (9.16 centimeters). And lo and behold they determined that there is no correlation between foot size and penis length so you can stop judging and predicting based on a man’s shoe size. (Hands were not included in the study – sorry Trump!)
In fact, the researchers did look for correlations with other body parts, which include testicular size, weight or foot size, and did not determine any consistent associations.
The study was designed in part to was to determine if penis size may is relevant in the assessment of men complaining of a small penis and whether or not their assessment is accurate. Men often complain to their urologists or sexual medicine clinics about their penis size, even though their penises fall within a normal range.
In medicine this is referred to as ‘small penis anxiety’ which adversely afflicts men from all walks of life. A famous incident involved George Costanza’s in the 1994 Seinfeld episode who becomes distressed after Jerry’s girlfriend Rachel accidently she him changing and observes George’s lack luster member while changing. George protests of “shrinkage” of his penis after exiting a cold pool was hilarious as he proclaims “I was in the pool!” Worth a revisit!
This is the first study to determine penis size based on actual measurements. As Science, has reported most studies have relied on self-reporting, which isn’t very accurate.
They studied 15,521 men from various countries across the world.
If you’re eager to see how your penis measures up, you’ll need to follow the same measurement procedure used in the study. Flaccid or erect length was measured from the root (pubo-penile junction) of the penis to the tip of the glans (meatus) on the dorsal surface, where the pre-pubic fat pad was pushed to the bone. Circumference was measured at the base of the penis or around the middle of the shaft, as the two sites were deemed equivalent.
