Many scientific researchers have tried to answer the question. Men and women worldwide want clear information about: What size is the average penis?
When is a penis size too small?
Perhaps the best gauge of what is considered to be a small penis is given by the threshold used by doctors for when penile augmentation may be considered. researchers publishing in the Journal of Urology studied the penis sizes of 80 physically normal men, measuring penile dimensions before and after drug-induced erections. After finding average sizes they concluded:
“Only men with a flaccid length of fewer than 1.6 inches, or a stretched or erect length of fewer than 3 inches. Should be considered candidates for penile lengthening”.
What is an average sized penis?
In the Journal of Urology study, researchers found the following among the group of 80 men.
- An average penis size of 3.5 inches when flaccid.
- An average penis size of 5.1 inches when erect.
The study also found that the size of a man’s erect penis was not correlated with the size of his flaccid penis. this means that men whose penises are different lengths when flaccid may have similarly sized erect penises. There was also no relationship between the men’s ages and their penis sizes.
The finding on how much the penis length can grow – on whether you are a shower or a grower – was further supported by a study of 200 Turkish men, in which flaccid length had little importance in determining erect penile length. The research determined average penis size includes a study published in January 2014 that examined over 1,600 American men, although it did not take physical measurements. To measure your penis length, press a ruler into the groin and measure from the base of the penis to the tip. To measure girth, wrap a measuring tape around the widest part of the penis.
