For most men, the size of the penis is a measure of masculinity and one’s ability to satisfy another person sexually. Due to this, penis size can have a significant impact on your self-esteem and self-confidence. Having a smaller than average size penis can lead to feelings of anxiety and fear of intimacy.
Hundreds of studies and researches have been made to determine the average penis size. However, the result has varied. This is primarily due to difference in sample size, and method of measurement. Here are some results:
The Alfred C. Kinsey Institute for Sex Research
Sample: 3500 white college males
Average penis length = 6.2 inches
Average penis girth = 4.9 inches
Comments: It is important to note that the information used in the survey was based on men who measured themselves. Only white males were included in the survey and they were all college students, so it did not represent a wide diversity of races or ages.
Study # 2
Sample: 2,936 men from different countries
Average penis length = 6.4 inches
Average penis girth = 5.2 inches
Comments: Men were asked to measure themselves and then report their results online. The bulk of respondents were from the United States and the majority of participants were white.
