Real Average Must Be Bigger

All under 5.5 and some going to about 4.5 inches.

The top rated dick on that site is by a guy who’s 21cm which is 8.2 inches. If these are so common why haven’t more been uploaded there. Simply, they’re not common at all! The likelihood is a lot us on this site were average and have gained something which puts us over average so people need to stop worrying about all the 8 inch dicks + out there who are bigger than themselves.

Noted, good point.


Start (Initially August 2008, Properly November/December 2008): 6.9x4.9

Currently (September 2010): 8.5x5.75 (6.25 inch head girth)

If I recall correctly, this is correct, but the distribution generally tends to show more men being below than above the average with most clumped between 4.5 and 5. The problem is that unlike length, girth doesn’t seem to follow a gaussian distribution.

I wonder where these measurements are taken. If I measure midshaft I am 5.25” and am 5.6-5.75” at base. either way I am above average but still makes me wonder where they measured.


My name is sarcastic.

That’s actually a very good point, in a few of the studies I read they take the average across the whole erect penis, but this can result in odd results. I’m 6.25” at the head and 5.6” mid-section, but the mid-section is longer. I think future research in penis size is going to focus more on circumference/girth, as the length studies have been done to death.

hmmmmm that would make me about 5.3”. I dont agree with this system. I would have preferred being given 3 individual measurements for each of these locations.

I don’t really know statistics, but I do know know there are a lot of really large dicks out there. I am talking about 8 inches and up. In fact, they don’t even seem that rare. With that in mind, think that if the average was 6 inches, then for every 8 inch, there would have to be two 5 inch members. Now 5 inches is not very common. If the average was 5 inches (NO WAY) then for every 8 incher, there would have to be three 4 inchers (Really No Way!). That is very highly doubtful. So considering how many huge 8+ guys there are, then it seems reasonable that the average must be higher than 6. This isn’t good news for me either, but it seems logical. I still feel small at 5.5 to 5.75 NBP, and compared to what I’ve seen, I am.

AMEN AMEN AMEN! This is EXACTLY the way I think and feel as well! Well said.

Except it has no basis in reality.

True, people can “feel” a lot of things, does not make the “feelings” true.

What’s that saying? “You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own set of facts.”

I feel 10”x7” is slightly below average.


Start • 5.94''x4.92''

Now • 6.50''x4.96''

Goal • 7.00''x5.75''

I do believe that the average is closer to 5 1/2” erect length. I will tell you why in a second.

This probably makes me a little of an exhibitionist, but I did something a couple of days ago, and then measured the comparison last night.

I went to the grocery and bought some Trojan Mangum XLs. I put them in my cart about midway through my shopping and then did the rest of my shopping (about 15 minutes) walking around with the XL condoms
in pretty clear sight of anyone who looked in my cart. Not on the front/top section, but not obstucted either. I had a bunch of regular groceries in there as well, so I didn’t look like some old creep. I think it probably came across as some middle-aged family man that had a nice large dick! I felt pretty good walking around like that hoping some people might see them and wonder. Innocent enough but very fun.

What is funny is that I don’t even wear condoms anymore, and I surely wouldn’t need the Mangum XLs. I wa sjust curious about the size of them after being on this site. I am going to see how one fits one morning when I wake up with my normal morning hard-on.

Anyway, to the subject. After getting home, I measured a normal condom I still had and it measured at approximately 6”. The Mangum XL was about an inch bigger at 7”. While these measurements might be a little off and included very little to no stretching, they are somewhat accurate. I believe that if there were so many
6+ and 7 inchers around, the normal would be bigger, and the mangum xls would be closer to 8” to accomodate all the 7+ inchers.

I also visited the site where people send in their photos and it was dominated by those between 5”-6” and included quite a number under 5.25.

Just my thoughts…I do not mind opposing views.


Current 01/14 BPEL 6.375 - Flaccid 3.50 (**now 4.5 as of 7/1/14)

Yes, although the data is confounded by considerable selection and reporting bias, and is subject to interpretation, I think the bulk of the evidence suggests pretty strongly that average NBPEL is 5.5” at most, and quite possibly less.

When a number of self-reported surveys of BPEL like the PE data here at Thunder’s, the sizable length poll at Cheeky Cherry PE forum, and the very large “Definitive Penis Size Survey” are resulting in median BPELs of 6.34”, 6.1”, and 6.4”, and knowing full well that many guys fudge the numbers, round upwards, or lie outright, the true median BPEL has to be a bit less, say somewhere around 6”.

It sure as hell ain’t 7” or more.

In reality = the real world I say it does. If the “reality” you speak of are the numerous, error filled “studies” and averages, then I guess not. I choose to believe what I see in life, and not the out of date and out of touch “statistics” I read on the Internet.


Current average: NBPEL 7(ish)" / MSEG: 5.25"

LT Goal: NBPEL: 7.25" / MSEG: 6"

wda628,

Based on your own experience and what you have heard from others, girls, etc. what size do you estimate the average penis length and girth to be?


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)
