HARD Facts about PENIS SIZE and How to Make it BIGGER
By Frank Ariveso
“Not to dishearten those with size-12 Jordans, but the most recent study on foot size and penis length did not find a link.”
Scientists have been hard at work measuring boners of more than 15,000 men’s penises in the lab, and now they have released the conclusions, because they know that you’re wondering:
Just how does your penis measure up?
And can you consider yourself normal?
The 20 different studies were conducted by several colleges in the United Kingdom and then compiled to review the measurements of penis size, both while flaccid and erect. The goal was to find average penis sizes across all races and ages. Health professionals did all the measurements, (because they said that people lie). Length was measured from root to the tip and penis girth (circumference) was measured at base or mid-shaft.
Am I normal? Men wondering just that, frequently ask the question: “Am I normal?” of urologists across the world. The study hoped to help doctors treat men who wonder if they are undersized and if their equipment is up to snuff. Many men have what is called “small penis anxiety” – meaning they are preoccupied and severely distressed over the size of their penis, despite their measurements falling within a normal range.
Here’s what the researchers found out about penis LENGTH:
• The average erect penis is 5.17 inches long.
• The average flaccid penis is 3.61 inches long.
• The average stretched, flaccid penis is 5.21 inches long.
And here’s what they learned about penis GIRTH:
• The average girth of an erect penis is 4.59 inches.
• The average girth of a flaccid penis is 3.67 inches.
• A person’s penis size ~might~ be related to their height.
The strongest and most consistent correlation was found between height and erect length or flaccid, stretched length. This means there could be an association between height and penis size, but it’s not a guarantee.
• Big feet did NOT equal big dong. And neither did anything else, really.
Many of the studies looked at characteristics like BMI (body mass index), foot size, index finger length, and testicle size, as they related to penis length. But, alas, nothing really held up. Looks like the only way to know someone’s size is, well, looking at it.
• There’s a scientific way to measure boners in a lab.
The study authors recommend using a disposable tape measure to record the length.
• Measuring a stretched, flaccid penis is also a thing that scientists do. Really.
To measure, grasp flaccid glans and stretch until one feels mild discomfort. Ouch!
• And stretched, flaccid penises are about the same size as erect penises.
According to the study, stretched length was a good predictor of erect length. BUT, they also note that using enough pressure when stretching is crucial, and one study found that urologists doing this measurement often don’t use enough force.
• Race is probably not a factor when it comes to the size of your penis.
The study authors could NOT find any evidence of racial differences in terms of penis size.
• According to this data, a micropenis is one that is smaller than 2.05 inches flaccid and 3.35 inches stretched.
In his book: “Penis Size and Enlargement: Facts, Fallacies, and Proven Methods”, author Garry Griffin provides the following estimates:
1. Only 15% of men have a penis longer than 7 inches when erect.
2. Only 3% of men are bigger than 8 inches when erect.
3. Only one man in 10,000 has a 10-inch erection.
Lots of things can affect penis length, which makes studying this way harder than it should be, and if you’re unhappy with your size, there may be ways to make it bigger — without going under the knife. A recent analysis of Google data claims the top penis-related search was “How To Make My Penis Bigger?” Let’s find out.
HERE’S HOW TO ACTUALLY MAKE YOUR PENIS
“Here’s the thing,” says Dr. Harry Fisch, a clinical professor of urology at New York Presbyterian Hospital. “You can increase the size of your penis — visually. The way you can do it is by losing weight.” When you have excess fat around your pubic area and stomach, it could make your penis seem smaller. “If you lose weight, you can actually gain an inch or two, because the [pubic] fat would be less,” says Fisch.
Another way to look bigger: Trim your pubic hair. Pubic hair grooming can cut back the bushes and expose the shaft, which can make it look longer.
To make sure your boner is at maximum length and girth is to be healthy. High cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease can hinder your size. Get enough blood flow to the penis by not being overweight and not smoking. “What’s good for the heart is good for the penis,” says Dr. Fisch.
Sexual satisfaction and compatibility is possible at any size, so don’t get so hung up on these stats. Your penis is fine. Really. Stop comparing yourself to a porn star. “If you’re worrying about your size pleasing your partner, remember that penetration is just one part of sex, and everyone’s preferences are different,” says Fisch. Many women don’t even orgasm from penile-vaginal sex. If you happen to be one of a small percentage of men to have a micropenis, (smaller than 2.05”), realize it’s all about finding the right sexual partner. Sex might include adding more oral stimulation, manual stimulation, sex toys, and so on. That’s what men with larger penises do, too! Have fun and it’s 100% possible to have an amazing sex life with any size penis.
