Since the only thing that men ever think about is how big their dicks are, we finally have some good news for you, men. Finally!! A new comprehensive study among 15,000 men discovered that the average length of an erect penis was a mostly meager 5.16 inches. Bust out some lube and measuring tape, why don't you? Tell us in the comments where you stand.
When the average peeter is flaccid, its length is typically 3.63 inches long and 3.66 inches around. The study, performed by British researchers and published in BJU International, collated data from over 20 studies where men had their penises measured, using information from 15,000 men out of the United States, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Researchers concluded from the data that roughly 2.28% of the male population has an abnormally small penis, so you're probably doing all right in the scheme of things.
Luckily, if you find that your dingdong is on the smaller side of the spectrum, researchers in the study compiled dick sizes into a chart that can be used to console men with small penises or body dysmorphia. Researchers said they did not find a necessary correlation between race and size, nor a man's foot and penis size, so at least within the confines of this study, all bets are off.
They acknowledged their results may have been somewhat skewed by the possibility that men who volunteer to be examined may be more confident in their penis size than the general population.
Remember, men: dick size may not be everything, but generosity in the bedroom is. ;)
