What is the average penis size?

Penis Length

This is defined as the linear distance along the dorsal (top) side of the erect penis, from the pubic mound to the tip of the glans. In non-medical jargon, your penis is measured in a straight, or for men with a curvy penis, a curved, line on the topside of the erect penis, from where your belly meets the shaft to the tip of your penis. Take multiple measurements over the course of a few days and then average the values. Since your erections can vary slightly depending on your level of arousal, mood, room temperature, and even the time since your last sexual encounter, averaging out a few measurements will let you get a more accurate figure.

Penis Circumference or Girth

Penis circumference is defined as the linear distance around the widest part of the erect penis. Whether you use a piece of string or a fabric ruler, you should wrap it around the widest part of your penis. If using string, make sure it is not stretchy, and mark the string at the correct spot and then measure it with a ruler. As with penis length, this should be done several times over a few days and the results averaged.

Now, want to know how you compare? We have to look at surveys to tell us what the average penis size is.

The Kinsey Report (Below) surveyed penis size among thousands of college men. It revealed the following data for the length of the erect penis (with foreskin retracted for uncircumcised men):


Note that 52% of men, more than half, had a penis 6 inches or less in size when erect.

The Lifestyles Condom Company also surveyed 300 college guys who were measured by a team of nurses and found that the average length of an erect penis is 5.9 inches.
