The above study is focused on guys with ED. Perhaps they didn’t get a 10 on the Thunder’s 1-10 “hard-on” scale (although they had subjective tumescence rated when measured). I’ve read on this forum that when injecting a PGE mix the erection doesn’t seem to be 100%. Hence they could even be bigger.
These were mostly older men. Perhaps a generation ago penis size was bigger. That would correlate with Kinsey and Wessley.
Personally, I believe the avg. Is about 6”x5” NBPEL x MSEG”. 8x6 is my goal, because porn has marketed that size as what is “Manly”. And, unfortunately I am sheepish enough to accept that porn-size = MAN.
Not convinced that it’s saying the normal size is 6.6BPEL
The 6.6BPEL figure is from only 17 men in the 0-4 months post surgical group. They have the highest penis sizes in the study. The average is actually 5.9.
And the study goes on to say that this average is similar to another group of patients with a history of ED but without any surgical history. To me this seems to be quite a flaw in the study methodology, as there is no “normal” control group. Without one, who is to say if “men with ED” are even representative of the population as a whole? What if ED is more likely to strike larger penises? I mean, I know that there isn’t supposed to be a correlation, but how do the authors of this study know that? What if the “it takes more blood to fill a bigger penis” concept means that in practice, bigger men are going to be the “most sensitive” to changes in the blood-filling capacity of penile tissues?
Personally I think this could reveal two things: age as a factor, and the effect of drug induced erections on size.
