Average Penis Size

Surveys and Statistics

All men want to know what the average penis size is, although it is rather irrelevant since women don't judge men by comparing their penis to the average size. To them it doesn't matter what the average is. Women care about what feels good and looks good, not about numbers. (see page 40, the The Ideal Penis Size)

Even though, most men still want to find out the average or medium penis size, because it allows them to place themselves in comparison with the rest of the population. To many men passing the average mark means having a normal penis., here it is:    

The Average Penis Size

There are four studies that are well respected in the penis size world. These are their results.

  1. The first one is the famous Kinsey Sex Institute study. In the 1960s they asked over 3500 college males to measure themselves.
    • average penis length: 6 inch (15.2 cm)
    • average penis girth: 5 inch (12.7 cm)
  2. Then there is the now famous Richard Edwards' Definitive Penis Size Survey Results with over 3000 participants.
    (not online anymore)
    • average penis length: 6.3 inch (16 cm)
    • average penis girth: 5.1 inch (13 cm)
  3. Another survey is the one done by Durex (just under 3000 participants).
    (not online anymore either)
    • average penis length: 6.4 inch (16.3 cm)
    • average penis girth: 5.2 inch (13.3 cm)
  4. A more recent study was performed by Lifestyles Condom Co. in Cancun Mexico in March 2001 (see They measured 300 college-aged students.
    • average penis length: 5.9 inch (15 cm) *
    • average penis girth: 5 inch (12.7 cm)

    * The exact figures of the Lifestyles study are 5.877 inch for length and 4.972 inch for girth. However, it is silly to put much attention on such decimals from a study that measures 300 men, with a world population of about 1.5 billion adult men.

So there you have it, the average erect penis size is a good 6 inches long and a good 5 inches in girth. Trying to be more specific than that is useless, unless you are willing to measure a statistically representative part of the whole male world population.
