Lifestyle penis size survey, how correct is it?

The survey done by lifestyle is said to be one of the most “correct” surveys.
The measurement is taken by lifestyle’s personal.

Wikipedia shows a cumulative percent chart based or lifestyles data:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Penis_percentile.svg

I’ve redone the chart in excel and it shows that 7” is in the 95th %-ile.
The 8” is in the 98.9th %-ile
6.5” puts you in the 90th %-ile.

Doesn’t it seems that the size is bonded to a very high %-ile?
6.5” bpel puts you in the top 10%

I hope it is. Sure makes me feel good.


I was gonna say, RootCap's hot. - kitten

Experienced women are the experts. They have seen plenty of dicks in person and a 1/4” there or a 1/2” there has a minimal impact on the visual appearance of the unit. The general concensus is 5.5” - 6.5” won’t make their jaws drop in shock. 8* and above will get the gasps when pants drop. Between 6.5” and 8” is the size many women prefer and put us in the “big” category.

I sense som sarcasm.
Do you really compare a womans judge to lifestyles penis survey?

According to the lifestyle survey, only one of ten men have a dick bigger than 6.5”
That’s sounds…not correct.

I don’t quite remember where I read this, but I think that it was established that this survey was taken nbp or almost nbp. So if you are 6.5 in nbp I think you should be around 7-7.2 inches bp, which will considered big by many people I think.

I am not sure if this nbp measurement thing is real or not, but I will try to look it up and post the source if I find it.


Was (july 07): 5.25 nbp (5.9 bp)X 4.5

July 10 :6.15 nbp (6.65 bp)X 4.8

Goal: 6.75 nbp (7.1 bp) x 5.1 Final goal : 7.25 nbp x 5.3

Yea I too would like to know if this is NBPEL or BPEL

—101


Start 01/10: BPEL - 5.6875" EG - 4.250" | Current: BPEL - 6.5" EG - 4.375"

Short Term Goal: BPEL - 6.5" EG - 5.0" | Long Term Goal: BPEL - 7.5" EG - 5.5"

But a difference of 0.5-0.7” between nbpel and bpel is over average, isn’t it?
My difference is between 0.2-0.3”

But it makes some sense if it’s nbpel because condoms only covers your npbel.

That makes the most sense, and the survey numbers would also make more sense if this is the case.

10% of men have a BPEL greater than 7
8% of men have a BPEL between 7 and 7.5
2% of men have a BPEL greater than 7.5

Does this seem a little more accurate?


Starting (10 / 2006): 5.8~BPEL, 5~BG ----> Current: 7.6 BPEL, 5.6 BG ----> Goal: Pringles Can

Looks like between 5.5 and 6.5 (6 bp and 7 bp) contains a huge chunk of the population.


Size is little more than a controllable perception without an accurate means of measurement.

I think you would have to randomly stop, and force men to get a full erection, then measure them to get real results. Who knows how many men are out there with X sized penis. Its literally impossible to test as we are all so insecure about showing it in public.


I'm consistent in spurts, but gains are undeniable!

2007: BPEL 5.5" / MSEG 4.7" / BG 5.5"

2017: BPEL 6.8" / MSEG 5.3" / BG 6"

I think your right. Probably more than 60% of men have that size.


Starting (10 / 2006): 5.8~BPEL, 5~BG ----> Current: 7.6 BPEL, 5.6 BG ----> Goal: Pringles Can

So the if we ad 0.5” and look at the data:

4,25 - 0,20
4,5 - 0,50
4,75 - 0,70
5 - 1,40
5,25 - 2,19
5,5 - 4,19
5,75 - 13,16
6,00 - 23,93
6,25 - 48,16
6,50 - 71,98
6,75 - 81,26
7,00 - 87,94
7,25 - 92,32
7,50 - 95,21
7,75 - 96,21
8,00 - 97,21
8,25 - 98,11
8,50 - 98,90
8,75 - 99,20

I don’t trust that that graph is based on the actual LifeStyles data, since they don’t seem to be publicly available anywhere.

In any case, it’s well-established that the LifeStyles survey found, by a significant margin, the largest average penis length out of all good medical surveys that have been done, probably largely because of the self-selection factor.

The graph is correct, I’ve redone it in excel and it’s the same as the one in wikipedia.

Ritte, I think PG is saying that the authors never actually released all the data. That the wiki data is from something else. I recall looking for it and never found it. Although there was a site that purported to have it, it wasn’t available from Ansell (mfrs of the LifeStyles Condom brand) and didn’t appear on the page that Ansell maintains about the study.

Personally I think the study was BPEL since it’s somewhat of the gold standard for erect penis measurements.
There are studies, like the UCSF study (Wessells) that are NBPEL but are explicitly stated as such. That study, by the way, yielded a 5.1 inch average. So a study with an average nearly .8 inches more seems to me, more likely to be BPEL. There is also a “skew” in that some studies indicate that penis size is shrinking, so that younger men might have smaller penises than older ones, although those were artifacts of the study and not the primary investigation. My recollection is that most studies haven’t shown any significant difference.

The other possibility is that if you add the average fat pad from the UCSF study, assume the LifeStyles study to be NBPEL as well, and deduce that frat boy/party types on spring break in Cancun are more likely to be of the “trim and lean” variety of guy, in general, that the differences might not be significant at all. For example, maybe the average Cancun fat pad is only .5 inches. And perhaps the average UCSF fatpad is 1.1. Then you have a delta of less than .3 inches. And you can throw in “self selection” somewhere in there probably too. It surely had some effect.
