Just to set the record straight since this question is asked almost every day on these boards.

The British Journal of Urology International (BJUI) performed a study of more than 15,000 men to determine the average penis size. Entitled ďAm I normal? A systematic review and construction of nomograms for flaccid and erect penis length and circumference in up to 15 521 menĒ we help put to rest the question of what really is a normal penis size.

The researchers reviewed studies on penis size and compiled the results. All studies had to include measurement of penis size by a health professional using a standard procedure, patients had to be at least 17 years of age, and a minimum of 50 participants per sample, to be included in their review. More than 20 studies were included in the review. It was their hope that by bringing these average measurements to light, they could be used to help counsel men in clinical and therapeutic settings.

The review uncovered the following:

-Average erect penis length was found to be just over 13 centimeters (approximately 5 inches).
-Average flaccid penis length was found to be 9.16 centimeters (approximately 3.6 inches).
-Average erect girth was found to be 11.66 centimeters (4.59 inches).
-Average flaccid girth was found to be 9.31 centimeters (3.66 inches).
-There was only a weak association found between penis length and foot size.
-Studies found some correlation between height and flaccid and erect penis length.
-Results, however, were inconclusive when it came to a correlation between penis size and finger length or testicular volume (ball size).
-Interestingly, it was found only 5% of men have an erect penis length greater than 16 centimeters (6.3 inches).

Regretfully, the researchers were unable to answer the debate about whether or not penis size can be correlated to race. Lynn suggests that penis length and girth are greatest in Negroids (sub-Saharan Africans), intermediate in Caucasoids (Europeans, South Asians and North African), and smallest in Mongoloids (East Asians). However, the researchers werenít able to use this study in their review, because much of this data was self-reported, as opposed to gathered by medical professionals.

"All studies had to include measurement of penis size by a health professional..." And they studied more than fifteen thousand men!

Man, is this a dream job or what! Can you imagine reporting to work, punching the clock and spending your work day examining and measuring dicks?

Especially when the job involves watching men trying to get as erect as possible. I imagine some men will get hard instantly while being watched by a researcher, but others wouldn't be able to get it up at all.

dream job is right

"...others wouldn't be able to get it up..."

That's when it really becomes a dream job. If your job is to measure erect penises and you come across one that is not erect, then you must do what needs to be done to get it that way. Nothing is off the table, be it hands, fingers, lips and tongue. Purely for the sake of scientific research.

As soon as the researcher's lips enveloped my cock, I'd be ready for measurement.

Of the things we men have to do for scientific research, getting one's cock sucked probably tops the list.

If someone want to see my erect cock, they would just have to put their mouth on it, I would surely pop a boner, for them.

Good studies. Thanks for posting. Confirms what I know from life.
By WristThick at 18,Jul,19 18:22 other posts of WristThick 
Me too. That's why I posted this way back in 2016. Size Me Up is an accurate site to know how big (or small) you really are compared to all other men. About 1 out of 30 men are 4" or less in length. Same for girth. 1 out of 3 men are under 4.85" in length and under 4.4" in girth. I've long said this site is NOT representative of anywhere near average size!

On here there is a lot of photo trickery. Like holding your fish out to make it look bigger. Camera perspective makes a cock look bigger too. Some of the length measurements the guy rams the ruler back to his pelvis to get extra length. And except for bragging rights, it doesn't make a difference.
By WristThick at 19,Jul,19 02:35 other posts of WristThick 
100% man! That's why comparison and measured pics are the only way of knowing for sure.

By #594261 at 22,Jul,19 17:24
I agree some guys seem to hold a tape measure right in to their pubic area , and also good camera work can give an extra inch or so in some cases do a picture with camera looking up to erect cock that hides belly button makes it look way bigger than what it actually is, I have done it my cock looks way bigger than its 7 inches erect could guess it looks like about 9 inches
By WristThick at 23,Jul,19 02:24 other posts of WristThick 
People don't realize that a legitimate 7 inches is longer than over 97% of all men out there. I don't think many would guess you're less than 8" from your pics
By 1RonG at 23,Jul,19 03:24 other posts of 1RonG 
I've had some comments about me being huge and when I say I'm not,I'm only 7 inches they seem surprised. As you say camera angles can make a difference , but honestly, what's the point in lying about it, it won't make any difference!
By #594261 at 24,Jul,19 18:40
this sounds stupid i showed a female friend my cock, just out a bath so it was hanging down nice, warm etc, a few weeks later( she showed me her boobs,about a 34dd here in uk big brown nipples too, in return for seeing my cock), I asked her if she liked it she said yes it was huge ! I asked how big do you think it was and how big do you think my hard on would be, she said it looked about 10 inches and it must be about 13 inches long erect , I told her to shut up and also said do you know how much an inch is she showed me what she thought an inch was and it was more like a 2 centimetres, ffs, so I thought guys that she has been with have been telling porkies about their cock size

Anyone entered their stats in to this? Wonder how reliable it is. By volume it says Iím bigger than 98-99% of guys. I just find that hard to believe.

By Earlybird at 16,Apr,18 13:10 other posts of Earlybird 
Finally, an unbiased, scientific penis length study administered by doctors!

Oddly, I've found that a lot of guys don't want to believe it. Rather than believe good science - they'd rather trust Internet myth, polls that rely on self-reported measurements, and heavily-edited pics that suggest 7-8" is normal. WTF is up with that??
By WristThick at 16,Apr,18 20:40 other posts of WristThick 
Exactly. This is the whole reason why I posted it.

ive alway know there are more guy under 6 inches than over...but you wouldnt know it from the internet

By #535069 at 29,Mar,18 15:07
The last one I'd heard was that average was 6", but it was self-reported. So now, instead of being "perfectly average" at (a self-reported) 6 inches, I can now tell myself I'm a full inch above average!

By Darthshame at 12,Jan,18 23:37 other posts of Darthshame 
Great to see a study not based on self reporting. I have a few black female friends that say black men are like other men in varying sizes. Maybe smaller black dudes don't participate in these studies.

I totally agree with what those girls told you. I have had quite a few black girls in my time.

Sounds about right. Guys just exaggerate far to much

Yes, this is the most accurate study ever done on penis size. Oddly, a lot of guys don't want to believe it. They'd rather believe Internet myth, self-reported size polls, and what they see on porn sites.

Mine's statistically a bit on the short side when soft, but it's average in girth @ 2.5" x 3.5". When erect, it's a bit longer & slightly thicker than average @ ~5.75" x 4.75". Definitely a "grower".

"Results, however, were inconclusive when it came to a correlation between penis size ....testicular volume (ball size)."

One of my boyhood friends had very large balls (esp. for his age) but also a very small penis. How that changed as he became an adult, I do not know.

damn,I guess I am slightly above average at 6.75. I always thought I was tiny.
But when I was younger i used to hear women talk about how they needed big 9 incher's to satisfy them and I guess hearing that so much I kinda derived from it I was small.

Ha Ha. When a woman tells you she needs a 10 inch cock. What she really needs is a tighter pussy.

well how come I wasent asked to have my penis measured then

By CountryCouple54 at 29,Nov,16 12:36 other posts of CountryCouple54 
And 1% of that 5% has an erect penis larger than 9 inches. So for every 1,000 men, 10 of them have an erection over 9 inches long. And they are all members right here on SYD.

End to end how many miles of cock would that be?

The important thing is that it's a pretty even spread from 4.5" to 6.5" (11 to 16cm) which means there's roughly similar numbers of guys with 4.5, 5, 5.5, 6 and 6.5.

Sadly a full 35% are 5" or less! (12.7cm)

and only 5% are over 6 -1/4"
