I understand the concept of keeping that “average” low so many guys don’t feel bad about themselves, but I really struggle to actually believe it.
This in one of the more bizarre statements I have read in a while. So you think there is an international conspiracy of researchers and scientists who are manipulating their data to make you feel better? Seriously?
I don’t know if I have quoted this article before, but it explains two concepts that will be useful to you. I am rearranging the sentence order slightlly:
Shower’s vs Grower’s
“Research shows soft (flaccid) penises vary in size much more than erect ones do - and it isn’t possible to predict from a soft cock what It’ll look like when It’s hard.
Some guys don’t change much between flaccid and erect, others do. Sometimes this is referred to as guys being ‘showers’ - they’re big when soft and don’t get much bigger; or ‘growers’ - they’re smaller when soft but then grow a fair bit as they get hard.
Self Selection for Size Surveys
Most researchers, therapists and doctors suspect the ‘average’ penis size figures obtained in research (and widely quoted) are at least an inch larger than they should be. This is because research on penis size is skewed in favour of men who are happy to be measured.
They’re based on measurements from laboratory studies where men knew they were participating in research to see how their knobs measured up.
This means guys who were worried about size were less likely to participate, whilst guys who thought they had big schlongs were more than happy to waggle them under researchers noses.”
What’s the average penis size?
by Dr. Petra Boynton
So to summarize
— you can’t judge the size of an erect penis based on a flaccid. EX: I am a grower — my pre-pe flacid increased 3 - 4 times when erect. I assumed this was true of all penises. That is not true for showers. They may not get much bigger at all.
— Many researches feel that the “average size” quoted by studies is TOO LARGE because “guys who thought they had big schlongs were more than happy to waggle them under researchers noses.”
