The Average Penis: 10 Easy Answers that’ll Make You a Know-It-All

You may be wondering if you have an average penis, or if your boyfriend’s penis is above average. Well, stop wondering and get your questions answered.

Average Penis

Ah yes, the penis. I, of course, am a major fan. However, just like any other body part, there are some unanswered questions I have about it. And I’m not the only one who ponders about the penis. So, if you wonder what the average penis looks like or what the average penis size is, I completely understand your curiosity. I mean, I also want to know what my genitals look like in comparison to everyone else’s.

In fact, I know many guys that need some questions answered. Though at first glance the penis looks underwhelmingly uncomplicated in comparison to the vagina, it’s not so simple.

Everything you need to know about the average penis

Who knows, maybe yours is above and beyond the average penis… probably not. It’s probably pretty average. There’s a reason there’s an average.

#1 What’s the average? Well, truth be told, there are a few ways to measure the average size of the penis.

– The average erect penis is 5.17 inches long.
– The average flaccid penis is 3.61 inches long.
– The average girth of an erect penis is 4.59 inches.
– The average girth of a flaccid penis is 3.67 inches.

So, take out your measuring tape and see where you fall on the scale. [Read: The big penis: Advice for the haves and have nots]

#2 Race doesn’t matter when it comes to the penis. I know what you’re thinking, African guys have the biggest dicks. I’m not going to lie, I thought that as well and even did some of my own personal research to see if it was true *it was true*. But, on the large scale, it’s not true. Maybe I was just lucky, but race doesn’t have anything to do with the size of your penis.

#3 Height can be related to the penis size. If you’re going to compare anything, it should be height. Many studies actually found height is somewhat correlated to the size of the penis. Now, this isn’t something you should base who you choose to sleep with on. However, from my own personal experience, I’ve noticed that the taller the guy is, the larger the penis is. I’m just saying.

#4 Don’t look at the feet. Seriously, I know you probably think that this is the way to figure out how big a penis is, but it doesn’t work. After all the studies done on the average penis, there is no correlation with the size of your feet to the penis. Stop staring at people’s feet now, you now know the truth.

#5 Smoking stunts your penis growth. If you are perhaps below the average penis size and you smoke a pack a day, well, quit smoking as soon as possible. If you’re a smoker, you may have had a penis that was average in size. But smoking actually shortens your penis by a centimeter. Now, you may not think that’s a lot, but really, that’s actually a lot. [Read: Big blue ball facts every girl’s gotta know]

#6 Grower and a shower. There are two types of penises: showers and growers. And both are completely normal.

– Grower: A grower is a penis that expands when it’s erect. Think of it like a surprise.
– Shower: A shower is generally larger most of the time and doesn’t increase much in size when it’s erect. Not a surprise, but you know what you’re getting up front.

These are the two types of penises. Now, there may be a third category. However, this is the most common two types of penises out there. [Read: From nada to ta-da! Why you want a grower not a shower]

#7 How long do you really last in bed? Maybe you think you finish too fast, but honestly, the average man doesn’t last long anyway. Sure, you may have a big penis or an average penis, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter.

Actually, I should be more detailed because people need to know. Men last an average of two minutes and 50 seconds in intercourse. Yeah, so, don’t feel so bad, that’s the actual average. It’s short. [Read: Average time for sex – How long we want vs. how long we last]

#8 Size does actually matter. Okay, so this doesn’t mean that size matters when it comes to sexual pleasure. You can wipe away the sweat and anxiety from your forehead now.

But, yes, there’s a but—size does matter when it comes to impregnating a woman. If you have a longer penis, your semen have a better chance of making it to the holy egg.

#9 You can change your foreskin. I know this sounds weird, but you can actually do it. If your penis is not what you would like it to look like, you can actually reconstruct circumcised foreskin. Yes, you may have just grabbed your penis in fear of the pain, but if it’s something you really want done, you can do it. I mean, it’ll be painful, but you will then achieve above-average penis credits. [Read: The 13 types of penises that women love… or laugh at]

#10 Natural or circumcised. You may be wondering what is normal—circumcised or natural. Listen, both are normal. I know that currently in America it’s a trend to get circumcised, but in all honesty, circumcision is an old tradition that is pretty useless.

Sure, your dick looks bigger but you also lose sensation because of the cut nerve endings. Either way is completely normal. Trust me if a girl likes you, she’s not too concerned about the skin surrounding your penis.

Listen, your penis is probably fine. So, if you don’t fall into the “average” category, don’t fret. At the end of the day, it’s how you use it.
