Average Penis Size, Revisited

I don’t believe the results from any study that doesn’t discuss their methodologies, or when they have flawed methodologies. For instance, I have trouble believing any study where guys report their own sizes on the internet.

Lifestyle condom manufacturers did a study (http://www.betterpenis.info/size.htm) where they actually had women measuring the guys themselves with a ruler. Now that’s a good testing methodology.

BUT, I started to even wonder about that study. I read from a different article that Lifestyle offered guys a free drink at this Cancun nightclub to participate in the study and they got over 300 participants. I though about it and wondered how many small guys would actually expose themselves to women holding a ruler for a beer? For a small guy that would probably be the most humiliating thing he could ever set himself up for.

So then you have to wonder if the volunteers were more likely to be the average sized to big sized guys at this nightclub? However, it’s still probably yielded the most accurate results to date.

If they knew they were small - not many, if they didn’t - many. You must also remember that there are lots of guys out there who aren’t obsessed with penis size and don’t even have a clue that they are below average.

Excellent points.

You think? I guess it’s possible, but I’d imagine most guys after puberty eventually wonder about whether they’re adequate or not. I would guess that if you’re at least average sized and have never experienced any negative female feedback you might never ever think about your size. But a guy with a very small penis who casually dates?

Granted I’m a Thunders member so my opinion is probably a bit distorted :D , but if you’re far below average, I think it would be very difficult to never become aware of this and never feel embarrassed about it.

Again, my opinion may be a little skewed from being a member here .. :D

Even if it meant that the guys with 9” lengths participated, but the micropenis guys didn’t - that alone would skew the average. The VERY small wouldn’t be offsetting the VERY big. See what I mean?

You’d almost have to kidnap 300 random guys against their will, haul them off and take their measurement to yield completely accurate results. :D

Nbp - the study was described as measuring on top from the pubic skin to the tip of the glans (head). 400 volunteered, but 100 couldn’t achieve a full enough erection. Porn magazines were provided for stimulus.

Man this is great news for most of us guys.

For many months I believed the bone-pressed studies to be non bone-pressed and Infact this puts me in the top 7.5%, incredible.

Hey beenthere - is that Jlo’s butt ? Just curious. I saw her in person and it looked just like that.

Yes! Good eye.

You know I hate to be a skeptic, but the devil is always in the details. I just wonder how they got this .2 percentile. If only 1 person was between 3.5”-3.75” out of 301 people measured then the percentile for this size would be: 1/301 = .332%

How did they get .2%? That alone makes me wonder if they couldn’t find any guys with micropenises to participate and therefore arbitrarily assigned a percentile to that group.

Just makes me wonder. :-k

Hmm, good observation. The survey dealt with discrete numbers. 0.1% is 1 person out of a 1000 and the sample was only 300 or so.

It could have been a miscalculation.

Kind of strange though that a large corporation would conduct a study, make a miscalculation, and then publish it for the world. I wonder if it’s possible that they didn’t get anyone with that length, but figured there MUST be someone out there with that length so arbitrarily assigned a number?

beenthere, which site did you find that breakdown? Did they by any chance give a breakdown of the actual sizes from those sampled?
