The big penis and mens' sexual health source, increasing penis size around the world.

Do any of us know what average size really is?

It’s hard to say for sure, particularly with regards to girth. A quick overview of the studies, suggests to me averages of length just under 6” (probably NBP, on males with little fat pad) and girth of 5” or just a bit less. All of the best studies are summarized at http://www.the-penis-website.com/size2.html, and fall within a pretty close range around 6x5.

“Using the figure of 5.9 inches from the LifeStyles Condoms Penis Size Survey it appears that men on average exaggerate their penis length by a quarter to a half an inch when they are permitted to measure and report their own size.” (this study reports an average girth of 5.0 inches, and while the largest and most objective study, has the flaw of having been limited to males at spring break in Cancun)

Survey Name Av. Length Av. Girth Research flaws.
Kinsey Institute for Sex Report 6.2 inches 4.8 inches Self-measurement process. Limited to Caucasian males.
Durex Internet Survey 6.4 inches 5.2 inches Self-measurement process. Anonymous via Internet.
California University (S.F) 5.1 inches 4.9 inches Only measured 60 men.
Brazilian Urologist 5.7 inches 4.7 inches Only measured 150 men.


Starting, summer '06: 6" EL, 6.5" BPEL, 5.5" EG / Currently: Approximately .4" length and .25" girth gains / Stretched ligs .5" - .6", increasing PBFL and flacid hang

Goal: 7.25" BPEL x 5.75" EG, currently over HALF WAY THERE! on length and ACHIEVED GIRTH!

Piercings: 4 Gauge PA (currently not wearing), Two 4 Gauge upper frenums, other non-genital

Wow.. I should be happy in over 6.5” length :D

Now when you say self measurement why does that sound like cheating and the durex Anonymous survey doesnt sound reliable

I would have to say that the measurements taken by these different institutes and surveys are NBP. The only people that care about BP measurements are ones that practice PE. Id would agree that 5.75-6” NBP is average length and 4.75-5” EG is pretty accurate.

So say for an average 6” NBP, their fat-pad is 1 inch let’s say. Therefore the average BPEL would be 7” ? I don’t think so biggerjohnson.

Obviously, in any scientific study, it’s not just the data that’s collected, but also the means by which it is collected. If one were going to conduct such a study involving 300 men, it matters how the measurements are performed, and we all know it. Do you have the subjects of study measure their penises themselves or do you have a medical practitioner measure them? Both means of data collection are tainted right off the bat. In the even of them measuring their penises themselves, one would have to have a considerable margin of error to account for the potential exageration of the test subjects. Then, if you have a medical practitioner do the measuring, men with relatively small penises may not volunteer for the study as a result of embarassment, thus tainting the experiment. Furthermore, men who are well endowed, because of the sense of self esteem they posses, would rush into line for the study(as someone else here had mentioned).

So, how does one solve the problem? Take the measurements without their knowledge? What are you going to do, administer cialis to 300 comatose men in hospitals and conduct the study that way? As a result of these problems, I seriously doubt any of us will ever know for sure what the true average is.

A Bone Pressed measurement is a PE related term. WE are the only ones that measure this way. Institutes, doctors, and various surveys would not measure this way at all. Its a measurement best used to monitor growth known only in the PE realm.

That truly sucks big time.

Read the link above. Some of the medical studies use BP. Others do not. Some use injections to induce full erection. Others do not. The thread is quite comprehensive about all these issues.

From the research I’ve done, the average seems to be 5.75-6” BP x 4.5-5” measured mid-shaft.

The problem with a lot of the research is that the sample sizes are often small, men exaggerate, or there is no consistency between studies.

Most results do not say how they measured. Was it BP? NBP? base girth? mid-shaft? Were the men fully erect?

The infamous Lifestyles survey is often quoted on the internet but it was flawed. After finding out what Lifestyles was surveying, many of the men decided not to go through with the measurement, which leads to skewed results. Even that result found EL to be 5.85 and girth to be 4.8.

Let’s be realistic though fellas. What does it matter what the actual average is? Are you going to argue that point in bed?

The only thing that matters is if you’re big to whomever is seeing your cock. I know that with my last girl she saw my cock and said “you’re huge!” and I’m 7.7 BPEL and under 5 inches of girth for most of my dick. If I can get to 8.5BPEL x 6 EG she’ll be crying for help!


March 2006: 6.875" x 4.500" x 5.00" (BPEL x MLG x BG)

April 2007-.: 7.81" x 4.81" x 5.1" - 'And it just keeps getting bigger!'

I will have..: 8.500" x 5.750" x 6.00" My Pics My Progress

This has been discussed a lot previously. Some studies take this into account, and most studies use young men where we surmise there is little fat pad and so not much difference between NBP and BP. Everything points to the same ballpark, of an average length right around 6”, given only a small variance for fat pad.

Quoted for truth. Average seems to be just under 6 bp.
