So you want to know how you measure up. First of all, it’s handy to know exactly what you’re measuring up against.
Thanks to the internet – where pictures of normal-sized penises are ridiculed and large dicks are seen as the norm – a lot of guys think a normal sized penis is about 7 inches erect. Trust me, the average sized penis around the world is much smaller than the average penises you see online. Why? Probably because guys with big dicks tend to take more dick pics or share them around. The actual standard size according to the results of 12 relevant studies and detailed in the British Journal of Urology (BJU) International, finds that the average erect penis is around 5.5 to 6.2 inches long and about 4.7 to 5.1 inches in circumference. Not so scary right?
The average American man’s penis is 5.6 inches (14.2 centimeters) long when erect.
Penises come in a huge range of shapes and sizes though. The smallest erect penis in one of the largest studies of over 1600 men was about 1.6 inches (4 cm) long, and the largest was 10.2 inches (26 cm) long.
The average penile girth was about 4.8 inches (12.2 cm)
So now you know what the average male is packing it’s time to see where you fit on the scale.
Measure your erect penis size.
A non-erect penis measurement is pointless since many factors cause the flaccid size to change constantly.
Measure your erect penis size at the 3 intervals during the day. In the morning, in the afternoon and at night. A number of factors including fatigue, hydration, etc may affect your measurement to a small degree. Note all 3 measurements down and add them together. Divide the final number by 3 and you have your average erect penis size.
What You Need To Measure Your Penis:
- Ruler/Soft Measuring Tape or String
- An Erect Penis!
Measure Penis Length
Position the ruler or measuring tape at the base of your penis (The point it attaches to your body) on the upper (stomach) side of your penis. Make sure to press into the pubic bone as far as you can because fat can actually hide the length of your penis. Also, a good reason to lose some belly fat!
Measure your penis length by marking how long it is from the base all the way to the end of the tip. Write it down. Take the same measurement at two other times during the day to add together. Divide by 3 to get your final measurement.
Measure Penis Girth
Now measure AROUND your penis.
For this step, you need to use a piece of string (or something similar) or a soft measuring tape.
Wrap the string/tape around the thickest part of the shaft of your erect penis.
Mark where the string/tape meets. If you are using a string, remove it and measure the length with a ruler. If you are using a measuring tape, just mark where it meets and note the measurement.
Write it down and add together with the other two times you take this measurement. Divide by 3 for your final measurement.
Whatever your final measurements are, remember the average vagina is only 3-4 inches from the opening to the cervix. So whopper dongs aren’t always needed to please a woman (or a man). In fact, the first inch of the vaginal canal is the most ‘pleasure-receptive’. Great news for pint-sized peckers!
That being said, most of us guys would love to add an inch or two of extra length to their penis. I personally have spent countless hours researching and experimenting on my own member over the years. I’ve put together an e-book which outlines my journey:
Well, that’s about all I got for you today gentlemen. Good luck out there.
