Ask a man how big his penis is and chances are he will embellish. Several studies have been done over the years and the actual average penis size may be shorter than you think.

Pornography tends to focus on men with overly large and unrealistic penis’s. Sure, some men are very well endowed, but for the most part, the average man has a much more modest erection.

The following studies help reveal the truth about penis size and will help you to honestly compare how you rank world of erections. If you find that are falling far behind those in these penis size studies, you may want to try acupuncture or enlargement pills to catch up!

Penis Size Study Number One

Source: The Guardian
URL:https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2015/mar/03/the-results-are-in-study-reveals-average-penis-size

Flaccid Size: 3.61 Inches (9.16 cm)
Erect Size: 5.16 Inches (13.12 cm)
Study Size: 15,521
Age Range: 17 to 91

This study found no direct correlation between penis size and race. In addition no correlations with other body features such as weight, foot size, testicular size or other aspects corresponded directly with penis size.

The study reports it is estimated that only 2.28% of the male population have an abnormally small penis.

Penis Size Study Number Two

Erect Size: 5.6 Inches (14.15 cm)
Study Size: 1661

The smallest size recorded in this study was 1.5 Inches (3 cm). The largest was 10.2 Inches (26 cm). One important detail worth noting is that this study was based on men self-reporting  their size, the researchers however; are confident the data is reliable.

An interesting fact discovered in the research showed that the method of arousal influenced that reported size. For instance, men who became aroused through oral sex by a partner reported a longer erect length on average than those who fantasized to obtain an erection.

Erect Size: (12.9 cm)
Study Size: 80

One conclusion made by this limited study was that only men with an erect penis size of less than 7.5cm in length should be considered for penile lengthening.
