Penis Size

2007-06-07 13:51:33.700762+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

A press release about Penile size and the ‘small penis syndrome’ by Kevin Wylie and Ian Eardley, in the June issue of BJU International, claims to have found an average penis size (which seems to match what we already thought of as an average penis size):

By drawing together the results of 12 studies that measured the penises of 11,531 men, they discovered that average erect penises ranged from 14-16cms (5.5 to 6.2 inches) in length and 12-13cm (4.7 to 5.1 inches) in girth.

It also found that:

85 per cent of women were satisfied with their partner’s penile size, but only 55 per cent of men were satisfied.

Which brings to mind that Ron White "We’re all a little bit gay" bit.

And just for post-modern self-referential journalistic silliness, here's a Guardian article reporting on a Sun article that was derived from that press release.

In an exhaustive study, I have scoured the internet - thousands of porn sites, In the Name of SCIENCE only, - and I can reliably report that the average length is 12.5 inches. It must be true!
