    As long as the survey included it's confidence intervals, it's all fine.

    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, mainly because I have a tiny penis, 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?

    No.

    Your knowledge of statistical methods and analysis is seriously lacking. 50,000 men is a large enough sample to produce statistical differences and norms. Im sure scientists conducted a random study to ensure they took a representative sample of the population. :rolleyes:

    If it was calculated correctly, there would have been the remaining number of males accounted for statistically in the method they chose to find the average. /nerd

    It's never going to be a true average though. And don't men usually overstate their penis size anyway?

    They should have actually measured them all. :cool:

    There have been countless surveys done, and the average always falls between 5 and 6 inches. Considering this, I feel it is fair to assume that the vast majority of men fall within 5 to 6 inches. I've always thought many people who would agree to such tests would be people who felt comfortable with their size.

    I always though that size didn't matter much, it was how you used it

    Well duh! I wasn't talking about sex was I? You guys are so typical :rolleyes: I was just expressing my feelings on some so called surveys which just don't seem right.

    e.g, they don't put what sizes they found the most and what they found the least, they don't make a chart of all the penis sizes (rounding downwards to the nearest CM perhaps?) so we can take a look at how many people ranged from what to what.

    Mine is 7"x5" so I'm pretty happy. although I "personally" would have been happy with 8x6. (just 1 more inch would have done it all around. I hate myself )
