    my penis is 7 inches long when fully erect. but as for the girth, i've never measured it, however, when i look at it from a side view, it looks really thin, but from a top view it looks normal. is this normal?

    also, what is the average girth? i am hearing a lot about the whole "small hands and fingers means a small penis" thing and i have smaller hands and skinny fingers. so i am starting to think even though my penis is long, my girth might not be up to standards.

    i never measured the width, but it looks thin from a side view, but normal from a top or bottom view.

    Girth is measured around the thickest part of the shaft with a tape measure. 5 inches around would be above average. Someone around here probably remembers the average from one of the dozens of penis size threads. Seven inches long could qualify to get you your porn star license.

    I think the average length is five inches, but keep in mind that girth is what really matters.

    From what I have heard average girth is around 4.5. But yeah like HR said 7in in length could get you into some porn. Be happy with what you got. Most of us would be lucky to have 7in.

    I had to educate myself on this subject awhile back because regular condoms were too small and large condoms were too big...

    So while doing a ton of research on the various condoms on the market, the avg. girth is between 4.3-4.7

    These were actual scientific studies done by the condom companies, with urologists measuring the actual girth of their male patients. Most "studies" are done by having guys anonymously fill out surveys. So if a guy has say a measurement of 4.8, he will many times just jot down that he has 5in of girth.... the old round up... or other guys will measure their head... all of these things inflate the numbers...

    You will see alot of penile enlargement companies tell you the avg size is 5 or even bigger, to make you feel badly about yourself, so you will buy their products. They know most guys fall below that number, since 5in is in fact above avg.... more guys who feel badly about their dick = more customers for them.

    Take it from someone who is in advertising, it is shady, but works like a charm for them.

    So unless you are below 4in in girth, there isn't much to worry about.
