    The average flaccid penis was found to be 9.16 cm (3.61 inches) long, whereas the average erect penis is 13.12 cm (5.16 inches) in length. In terms of girth, the average circumference of a flaccid penis turned out to be 9.31 cm (3.66 inches), and 11.66 cm (4.59 inches) for an erect one. Furthermore, those at extreme ends of the spectrum were found to be much less common. For example, only 5 men out of every 100 have an erect penis longer than 16 cm (6.3 inches).

    Now just watch the big slong boys come out with their credentials.
    Oh yeah guys before you brag about your length please know that the correct measurements is taken from only the useable length ie the top to tip so forget those useless 3" below ok!

    penis size preference chart.jpg
    Average size is about 5.75" long and 4.75" girth, while the ideal 6.25" to 6.5" girth is about 1 in 1 million men.

    My penis dimensions never suited the average vagina terribly well. Penis length doesn't make a difference to penetration, but a bigger penis girth makes penetration more difficult. My size frightens most women away from sex, but the women who have had sex with me didn't have a problem with my length; it was my girth. I'm used to watching for signs of pain with penetration.

    Unless a woman has larger mouth they can't do oral sex on me when I'm fully hard, so it's about 1/3 can do oral sex on me and 2/3 can't. That will put into perspective what women who have sexual intercourse with me are dealing with.

    Women naturally prefer bigger penises to smaller. From my perspective girth preferences ove length seem about right, and there have been times when I've felt that I wouldn't want to be any thicker or else sex would become impossible with some women.

    Men with large girth often have problems with women sometimes not wanting sex with them, and while some women initially have not wanted to have sex with me, and some were even convinced I couldn't fit inside them, sex has always happened. I think the reason is that I come across as decent and trustworthy and also I tell women who are reluctant what I'm going to do and how sex will work out fine for them. Ultimately sex worked out fine, so I'm not telling them stories just to have sex. When I tell them obviously they believe me, and it's amazing to see someone who was convinced that sex wasn't even possible to be enjoying sex with me a few minutes later.

    The only porn actors who come close to matching my girth are African American, and when I watched one penetrate a woman I wondered how he was going to get something that thick into a small hole, while realising it's the same with me. I have seen four or five African Americans close to my girth and no whites have ever come close.

    My girth is such that women don't touch their clits with me because they find that distracting from the feelings they get from my penis inside them. So they just concentrate on feeling full. They don't want me to touch them either, of course.

    I'll echo the other comments that size does matter once you are a significant degree larger than the average. A woman's not going to marry a man because of large size although I have had women tell me they broke relationships off because of small size. Everything else being equal - bigger is better, especially thicker. Women like the visual and the tactile sensations of a larger penis, and they like the feeling of being filled and stretched. I have been told that exact phrase by at least 15 or 20 women; 'filled and stretched'. (Note: I have had sex with over 300 women.)

    The endless 'am I big enough' agonising that some men go through is about whether or not they believe the woman they are with. If they believe her when she says that size doesn’t matter - then size probably won't be an issue, but if they don't believe size remains an issue.

    But seriously, folks, setting aside my jokester behavior for a moment. Whether you're "below average" or "average" or "above average" - regardless of which chart, study, or whatever you're using as your basis....

    None of it matters as long as you (A) know how to use it, (B) your lover is satisfied, and (C) you realize there's a lot more to sex/sexuality/romance/intimacy than just your cock.

    PS - That post of mine above with the charts and such... I can't claim credit. Somebody else wrote 98% of that - I just paraphrased a few sentences.

    Being serious about this - does it really matter. We have what we were given and should be satisfied. If we want to measure ourselves lets look at honesty , reliability and selflessness as being more important and lets stop preening ourselves and showing off how big/small we are.:)

    This is not just another set of data. This is a synthesis level research study published in a top rated research journal (British Journal of Urology International (BJUI)). There is lots of data floating around out there and the problem with it was it wasn't standardized nor was it performed in a rigorous research environment. To elaborate on the findings Sweetly reported.

    In this study length/girth of the mens' flaccid and erect penises had to be taken in a standardized way to be included in the study and the men had to meet various other criteria (healthy, adult etc):

    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.

    Flaccid or erect circumference (or ‘girth’) was measured at the base or mid-shaft of the penis, (and not from the corona).

    The average erect penis is 13.12 cm (5.16 inches) long with a standard deviation of 1.66 cm (0.65 inches)

    The average erect girth was 11.66 cm (4.59 inches) with a standard deviation of 1.10 cm (0.43 inches)

    So, if you are 4.51 inches to 5.81 inches in length and 4.16 inches to 5.02 inches in girth you are well within the range of the average human male. You could also look at it this way. That size range represents millions of years of female choice on size.

    If you subtract and add another standard deviation from that range you are within the range of 95.4% of the rest of the male human population and you may be able to categorize yourself as below and above average in size at that point.

    What I found surprising is how rare bigger erect penises are. If you take 100 guys, only 5 of them will have a penis of 6.3 inches or longer (and that is pushing the ruler into the fat pad while measuring). Honestly I was expecting the standard deviation to be wider but this is a synthesis study and it is hard to deny science based on that level of data. It also shows you how skewed the images we see on the internet are (even sites like this one).

    Below are links from an online science article (more readable) and the original research paper

    Yeah this study was definitely an ego boost for me, but it still did little to dissuade the dismorphic attitude i have internalized over the years. I think the term average is the issue. The ladies can say size doesnt matter until they are blue in the face, doesnt make itthe truth. Besides theyve already done studies on how women prefer to gawk at the big ones, and in all honesty i think that is the more important measure because it is more equivalent to the traditional male view of sexuality. Women may settle for average based on comfort, and or personality(much like men do) but they seemingly yearn for above average. I just wish there was more honesty on the subject on behalf of the ladies, as opposed to an effort to maintain some sense of moral superiority.

    300 women, that's awesome.

    Unfortunately, I'm still below the new average. While I can still satisfy my wife, she still likes a fuller feeling. Yes, she has been with guys larger than me and does like large toys.
