How big does "it" have to be? Many men worry about the length and girth of their best piece. Scientists have now determined the international, age-independent penis average. The whole thing has a serious background.

So long, so thick

The average mass of a "normal" penis:

  • Erected 13.12 cm long, with a 11.66 cm circumference
  • Flabby 9.16 cm (when elongated 13.24 cm) long, with 9.31 cm in circumference

In order to determine the “standard penis” representative of all age groups and many ethnicities, British researchers have compiled 17 studies in which the data from 15,521 measured genitals are included.

Even if the numbers are not completely new, the researchers say that such a systematic overview has been missing so far. They want to provide doctors with arguments that have to convince concerned patients that their “best piece” is normal. In this regard, many young men measure themselves against pornography and images on the Internet - the resulting self-doubt can lead to mood swings and even depression.

The scientists also dispel the myths that the size of the penis can be "read off" without looking in the trousers: correlations with the length of the index finger, age or shoe size are weak or inconsistent.

    So I don't really believe this study, once it's 14.5 cm, then a little over 15 now again 13 cm. I think 15 cm is actually the more correct global penis size. Perhaps you have lowered the average a bit, as more and more dangerous measures wanted to take to enlarge your member. You hope this will bring a certain peace of mind. I think this study is more psychological because 13 cm is a bit small.
    Agree agree to the comment

    A lady once said to me - yours is moderate, but he has seen the work - you can come back - hahaha!
    Agree agree to the comment

    I do think that these studies contribute to a better world - especially a better climate. Now the male porn consumers know that they are comparing themselves to the wrong people and can confidently do without buying flashy cars.
