Another weird EG statistic.
I found this on a survey about penis size
Readers were asked to measure their erect penis for length and circumference using uniform, precise methods. They were told: “If you have even the slightest temptation to lie or exaggerate your measurements on this survey, or if you aren’t interested in getting a precise measurement by using the methods outlined below, please do us all a favor and skip the next two questions.”
This was the measuring method given for length:
With a rigid ruler handy, get a full erection. Lay the ruler along the top of your penis, and press the end of the ruler firmly against your body (where the pubic hair is). Hold your penis against the ruler with your hand, straighten out as much as possible any curvature that may exist, and try to hold your penis so that it’s sticking straight out from your body. Then determine the ruler reading at the very end of your penis.
Question: The non-exaggerated length of your erect penis, as measured by the above method (please don’t fill in if you didn’t follow the directions):
Overall average: 6.07”
By age: • age 12 4.47”
• Age 13 5.28”
• Age 14 5.67”
• Age 15 5.95”
• Age 16 6.14”
• Age 17 6.20”
• Age 18 6.13”
• Ages 19 and older 6.30”
By ethnicity (age 15 and over only): • Blacks 6.89”
• Asians 5.53”
• Whites 6.22”
• Hispanics 6.15”
• Native Americans 5.66”
Among those who began masturbating to orgasm at age 11 or earlier: 6.08”.
Among those who began masturbating to orgasm at age 14 or later: 6.03”.
Readers age 16 and over whose penis is shorter than 6” masturbate an average of 6.8 times per week; those with a penis 7” or longer masturbate an average of 8.0 times per week.
In the average male, the penis reaches close to it’s adult length by about age 14 but continues to grow slowly until about age 16. Again, the sample size of some minority groups was too small for definitive statistical analysis, but according to these findings, people of African heritage report the longest penises on the whole, followed by whites, Hispanics, and Native Americans. As a group, Asians reported the smallest penis sizes among the ethnicities. Penis size and masturbation at an early age are probably unrelated. However, readers with larger penises currently masturbate slightly more frequently than those with smaller penises. Why? Who knows?
This was the measuring method given for circumference:
With a flexible tape measure or piece of string handy, get a full erection. Measure the distance around (NOT across) the fattest part of your penis. In other words, wrap the tape measure or string around the shaft and measure it that way.
Question: The non-exaggerated circumference (not diameter) of your erect penis, as measured by the above method (please don’t fill in if you didn’t follow the directions):
Overall average: 4.37”
By age: • age 12 2.98”
• Age 13 3.88”
• Age 14 3.99”
• Age 15 4.19”
• Age 16 4.33”
• Age 17 4.31”
• Age 18 4.60”
• Age 19 and over 4.63”
By ethnicity (age 15 and over only): • Blacks 4.55”
• Asians 4.20”
• Whites 4.48”
• Hispanics 4.42”
• Native Americans 3.74”
Among those who began masturbating to orgasm at age 11 or earlier: 4.43”
Among those who began masturbating to orgasm at age 14 or later: 4.35”
On the average, the penis seems to grow in circumference slightly longer than it grows in length, reaching a maximum in the late teens. Findings in relation to ethnicity and age of first masturbation were similar to the findings for length.
Now the average length seems ok, but what surprised me was the average girth(remember this is a self reported survey so people may have a tendency to exaggerate a little), I mean I understand that some of the measurements are from teens but surely the 16- and up males should be closer to the 5 inch circumference that we are lead to believe is average?
The average here is larger than the one in this thread Weird EG statistics but it’s still smaller than what most other statistics say. I’m really hoping it’s true (packing only 4.8 base girth and 4.4 mid) but it doesn’t seem right.
What are your opinions?
