Full text penis length study, a bit more clinical than Lifestyles

On thing is for sure. None of these studies with BPEL push the damned ruler in as hard as we do!

Also, when I measure my peak erection is only lasts a few seconds while I position the ruler. I would bet the people in the studies don’t have that luxury, and are really getting about 95% erection measured.

It seems to me that studies with better methodologies find smaller mean sizes; studies with poor methodologies (like the mail in cards mentioned earlier) find larger averages. Given the obvious motivation to lie and the obvious bias in sizes of observed dicks (guys with bigger dicks are more likely to show ‘em off or work in porn), it seems pretty clear that the picture we get in our daily lives of “average” is pretty damn skewed to the big side of the spectrum. Honestly, I would be shocked if the average BPEL was even close to 6.5”; I think all the numbers point to an average of around 6” or less. Also, keep in mind that these numbers are means (arithmetic averages), not medians. Means are heavily influenced by outliers (unusual observations); medians are not. So, Bohm, we have no idea what size 50% of men fall below. If the distribution is perfectly normal, then the mean and median will be the same; but this distribution is probably right-skewed, so the median would actually be less than the mean: it could be that 50% of men are 5” or below. Also, keep in mind that, given the obesity problem in the much of the world today (especially the US), mean NBPEL is going to be pretty small. I really would not be at all surprised if I heard that the median NBPEL were 5” or less in the US.


Starting (May 2010): BPEL:6" EG: 4 7/8". Current (April 2011): BPEL: 6 3/4" EG: 5 1/4".

Short Term Goal: BPEL: 7" EG: 5.25" Long Term Goal: When my wife makes me stop or 8"x6" (whichever comes first)

I’d agree that when someone else is measuring its different than when we wait for our EQ 10 boner with a kegel and measure. So maybe in this study showing BPEL of 5.7, it would be 6 if they kegeled and pressed a little harder. Likewise if someone else measures us our stats might be a little lower than what we think they are. But girth doesn’t vary much at least for me whether I have a 100 percent erection or even 75. When it comes to NBPEL, the average could be really low due to the obesity problem. I think Lifestyles was the most generous in that you had a spring break crowd of presumably fit guys. They advertised you are measuring dicks and they still got under 6 inches. I don’t think there is any official study(meaning someone else measures it properly) that shows length to be over 6 inches. I personally feel pretty good on my length at over 7 BPEL but my girth is where I’m more concerned as I’m 5 mid.

Some of this studies measured a drug-induced erection. By what I’ve read around, those erections can give something more in size than the hardest of ‘natural’ erections.

Also drug induced erections pass by the emotional status of the individual . Even at home, when I try to take a pic with the ruler my erection subsides rapidly.


Starting stats: 6.4" / 5.6" Current Stats: 7.4" / 5.8" Short term goal: 7" / 6" Long term goal: 8" / 6.5"

4 out of 5 dentists have a dick less than 7 inches NBPEL.

Ditto. I have performance anxiety. I can’t even get it fully hard, if I know I’m going to be measuring it. But when I’m horny, I can shoot my load in ~10 seconds even without a girl. Weird.


Starting Size: April, 28, 2010: NBPEL-7" Girth-6" (base, MSG, glans)

Currently: BPEL-8" NBPEL-7.25" Girth-6.25" (base)/6.125" (MSG)/6.125" (glans)

You guys ever wake up in the morning with a pee hard-on? If so, might consider keeping a camera in the bathroom and take the pics. On the rare occasion that I measure its usually when I wake up with a pee hard-on.

Bohm,

Maybe I’m missing something but the study says 5.7” BPEL and your claiming a 5” NBPEL or less? Maybe their fat pads were not so large and their NBPEL is closer to their BPEL?

Anyways the study isn’t that hard for me to believe.

I’m relatively slim and I have ~ 0.5” fat pad. I can’t see how a 5.7” mean BPEL would not lead to a less than 5” NBPEL median measurement especially given the age distribution and the typical fat pad measured in most studies (~1”). You believe the average BPEL is 3.39” (as seems to be suggested in the study)?

Sorry, that should read:

“You believe the average BPFL is 3.39” (as seems to be suggested in the study)?

Yup, as I always say with these threads, you should probably add at least a half-inch to the figures if you want to convert to a “Thunder’s-style” measurement.

Using “normal” real-world measurement methods, very few penises are over 7”. Even fewer over 8”, and vanishingly few over 9”.
