Many men here want to know the size of the average human penis. The aim of this post will be to provide an objective answer. A PubMed search and some Googling turned up several studies in which the penis was measured by medical personnel. In the following list, I will report averages for erect and flaccid stretched measurements. For newbies unfamiliar with the acronyms, please see the glossary. When I do not indicate BP or NBP, this is because the study abstract failed to specify such.


Group 1: Studies specifically aimed at determining average penis size

Study 1 - 80 American men:
NBPEL (100% erection induced by drug injection) = 5.08”. FSL = 4.88”.

Study 2 - 300 men, “college-aged”:
NBPEL = 5.88”. EG (midshaft) = 4.97”.

Study 3 - 3,300 Italian men, 17-19 years old:
FSL = 4.92”.

Study 4 - 271 Jordanian men:
FSL = 5.31”.

Study 5 - 1500 Iranian men, 20-40 years old:
FSL = 4.56”.

Study 6 - 52 Greek men, 19-38 years old:
FSL = 4.80”.

Study 7 - 301 Indian men:
FSL = 4.28”.
A subset of 93 of these men were measured erect, and the average was 5.12”.

Study 8 - 84 Brazilian men, 18 years old:
BPFSL = 5.71”.
The 90th percentile for BPFSL among these 18-year-old men was approximately 6.61”.


Group 2: Studies in which average penis size was not the primary goal of investigation (Some guys have expressed concern that doctors fake data in penis-size studies in order to relieve men’s insecurities. The following studies should not be prone to this criticism.)

Study 9 - 55 Israeli men, 21-78 years old:
BPEL (100% erection induced by drug injection) = 5.35”. EG (base) = 4.29”. BPFSL = 4.92”.

Study 10 - 111 “younger” (18-19 years old) and 32 “older” (40-68 years old, for whom 100% erection was induced by drug injection) German men:
BPEL (young men) = 5.70”. BPEL (older men) = 5.58”.

Study 11 - 104 British men, 17-84 years old:
FSL = 5.12”.

Study 12 - 123 Korean men, “early 20s” in age:
BPFSL = 4.21”. NBPFSL = 3.78”.

Study 13 - 200 Turkish men, 20-22 years old:
NBPEL = 5.01”.

Study 14 - 115 Nigerian men, 30-65 years old:
FSL = 5.30”. Range: 2.95”-7.68”.

Study 15 - 100 American men who had had a prostatectomy (47-74 years old) and 130 who had not (47-74 years old), with erections induced by drug injection if needed:
BPEL (prostatectomy) = 6.06”. BPEL (no surgery) = 5.98”. EG (prostatectomy) = 4.65”. EG (no surgery) = 4.57”.


Out of these high-quality studies, four included a measurement of erect length, the statistic that most interests men at Thunder’s Place. Three of these four included direct injections of a drug into the penis to induce a 100% erection — so their numbers can’t be dismissed as too low due to measurement anxiety. The four studies reported average erect lengths ranging from 5.35” BPEL to 5.88” NBPEL (the latter number comes from college students on spring break in Cancun, who probably had small fat pads). For the three studies that did not include erect measurements, we can estimate that the erect figure would have been about 0.25” longer than the reported stretched flaccid length, judging from the differences in studies that included both FSL and EL. For these three additional studies, the average erect length can be inferred to range from 4.46” BPEL to 5.37” (might be NBP or BP).

Studies in which size is verified by a third party, therefore, have consistently turned up averages below those of self-report studies. For example, the famous Kinsey self-report survey found an average NBPEL of 6.16”, while a Durex online survey showed an average of 6.4” NBPEL. In my opinion, to trust men’s anonymous self-reports over the data of seven objective medical studies demonstrates penis-size paranoia — something to which we are prone here. If we look at the objective data instead, the average erect penis length appears to be no greater than 5.5 - 6.5” BP — and may even be smaller.


Disclaimer: I am not trying to suggest that enormous penises do not exist. They do — and some men are born with them. But for those who were not born with a huge one, and who instead aim to build one through PE, I think it’s important to establish a reasonable standard of what “average” is, so that size-paranoia does not continue to haunt them even after they have reached a truly large size.

The problem with having a decently sized penis is I can't understand the issues everyone else seems to have...

Mine's only 6.5 inches when erect so is hardly massive, but these studies really confuse me because it puts me way above average. From what I've seen in adult videos mine is about average o.O I've certainly never considered myself to have a big one. Never been embarrassed by it either.

Compared to what's on TSR that is nothing. Without the number there is missing context.

Single people tend to have more time on their hands to worry about knob size.

I read up on another study a while ago that concluded that only 55% of women actually care about penis size, compared to 85% of men.
