How big is the average penis?

Size matters ... for science, anyway.

While there have been numerous prior studies (both scholarly and unscientific) on penis size, the British Journal of Urology International published one of the girthiest analyses to date. Pulling data from 17 previous academic papers that included a total of 15,521 men worldwide, researchers in the UK came up with a meta-analysis of what they believe to be the average size and girth of a penis when erect and when flaccid.

Sorry, guys, but your eggplant emoji isn't exactly accurate. According to the new research, the average flaccid penis is 3.61 inches in length and 5.16 inches in length when erect. Girth is 3.66 inches when flaccid and 4.59 inches when erect.

Numbers aren't the only results to come out of the new study. It also questions some of the common penis size stereotypes, like whether your race or foot size are determining factors for penis size.

The researchers did not find enough evidence from the 17 previous studies to come up with a conclusion about the difference in size by race. Two studies incorporated foot size into account, and found penile length to be "significantly weakly correlated," while the other did not find a correlation at all between the two.

The stronger statistically significant correlations were between flaccid stretched or erect length and height, which was found in four studies, although the correlations were not extremely strong.

Of course, there are a few limitations that could affect penile dimensions, including temperature, level of arousal and sperm count.

But we're much more interested in what 3.61 and 5.16 inches actually looks like, so we've compared the two averages with everyday household objects.

Matters to who and for what reason? Maybe to 12 year old boys in gym class...or maybe those who like to compare porn star penis sizes to their own...probably the same group I'm thinking.

LOL, well said B.  

Someone told me once that she liked a slow burn . Maybe it mattered to her . But you are probably right . I think it would matter to men more . Really don't know .

I just read a headline today that said " Woman divorced husband because his penis was too big."  Honest!  Made me think of this post, for which I had no comment before.

yeah you don't see that everyday .. i got a bucket of chicken the other day and they gave me 2 extra pieces of chicken .. so i took it right back and complained too.. 

Well did they take the chicken back ?

somewhere in the middle is probably good...and of course it always depends on both parties....

TURNS out bigger isn’t always better.

A Nigerian woman filed for divorce from her husband because she couldn’t handle the size of his penis, according to Nigerian media reports.

Aisha Dannupawa, a housewife and mother of three, asked a Sharia court to dissolve her one-week marriage to Ali Maizinari in Nigeria’s Zamfara State due to his large member. She told the court she had married Maizinari after her first marriage failed.

As part of tradition before settling into her husband’s home, the bride was invited to move into his parents’ house. It was when they first had sex she claimed that the trauma began.

“When he came, we had sex but the experience was a nightmare. Instead of enjoying the sex, it turned out to be something else, because his penis was too big,” she told the court, according to Nigeria’s Tribune.

After their first unsuccessful romp, she took medication given to her by her mother.

“I told my mother the experience but she told me to endure and that with time, I will be able to cope. She then gave me some drugs,’’ she said to Nigerian media.

According to Dannupawa, the couple had sex again but it was “too much to bear” and concluded that no drug could help the sexual process - or their marriage.

The well-endowed husband did not deny the accusation. Though he told the court he was willing to dissolve the union if his dowry and money spent during the courtship was paid back.

Zamfara is more than 800km away from Lagos, Nigeria’s capital and was the first state to introduce Islamic law.

Divorce Reasons: Taiwanese Woman Divorces Husband Over Small Penis

Posted: 03/18/2013 3:45 pm EDT Updated: 03/18/2013 3:47 pm EDT


For some women, size really does matter.

According to Apple Daily (via The Daily Chilli), a 52-year-old Taiwanese woman was recently granted a divorce from her 55-year-old husband of four years because his penis -- which reportedly measured in at 5 centimeters -- was too small.

It wasn't until their wedding night that the woman learned of the issue.

"He's also impotent and unable to fulfill his responsibility as a husband," she said. "We quarreled the whole night and I asked him to seek treatment."

The newlyweds separated the next day. The former wife claims they were never able to successfully have sex at any point during their marriage, despite several attempts.


 (5  centimeters is less than 2 inches)

I can tell you one thing size does count if you are a fat person . Bonafied fact ?
