The "Average" Penis Size - Is It All Just B.S? watch

    Yes, I asked that right. I think its all B.S from top to bottom. For example, the average penis size in the U.K is supposedly to be 5 inches. But how accurate is this? Here's why I ask:

    1) Only 50,000 men where interviewed.
    2) There are over 30,000,000 (million) men in the U.K alone. Making that around 15% of the male population.

    Is it not likely the people that took the test had small penises and wanted to see if there penis size was average, making the results look smaller. I mean, if you had a larger penis, you wouldn't even care right? So in my opinion, most of the people that took the test actually had small penises, which gave the so called national "average" as 5 inches.

    Anyone else agree with me?

    Erm, where was this study done, by who and description of how people were selected?

    50,000 is a very large number of people, so if it was done correctly would be pretty representative (but without more information impossible to say...)

    Err, it depends on how that data were acquired? If it's a self-selecting poll, you might have a point despite the rather large sample size of 50,000 people (though it's well known that men tend to exaggerate the size of their penis when asked). If it were independently surveyed, 50,000 is a huge sample size provided that the sampling was fair.

    It's just as likely people with bigger penises would take the test to see how bigger they are compared to the average (an ego boost). So you are wrong OP.

    And the average is 5.5 to 6 btw.

    Just checked wikipedia and such and seems the average according to various studies is 5 - 5.9 ish. So we can assume the average is 5.5 (length). Quite comforting.

    Ultimately though noone cares. Any girl that would care that you don't have a huge willy is not worth talking to lol.

    I think there have been numerous polls on tsr, annonymous so probabaly honest, which you could find with the search function.

    And also -

    1) (Remember a comedian saying this) - 'Mine may be small but it goes like a sewing machine'
    2) (another one said this) - 'it's not about haveing a big ****, it's about having 20 stone to ram it in with'.

    Not my jokes btw - disclaimer =D
