Average Man's Penis Size Inches Length Thickness

In a recent study, published in January 2014, over 1,600 participated in measuring their penis size to arrive at an accurate measure of the mean length and width. Daily diary measurements were submitted by each male participant. The men were incentivized to provide accurate self-measurements as they were to receive a condom sized properly in width and length to fit their erect penis.

Average Penile Length Adult Men Aged 18 and Over: 

According to the data, the average or mean length of an erect penis is 5.57 inches (14.15 cm) of an adult male, age 18 or older. In the flaccid state the length is approximately 3.5 inches.

Average Penile Circumference Adult Men Aged 18 and Over:

The average circumference or width of an erect penis is 4.8 inches (12.23cm). And in a flaccid state, the average penis circumference is 3.6 inches (9.16cm) in length and has a girth of 3.7 inches (9.31cm).

The penis stops growing in both circumference and length when a man completes puberty, generally no later than age 18.

Alas, most women assume the average is six inches based upon pop culture lore – which leaves lots of men feeling unfairly inadequate at the onset.

Does Penis Size Matter to Men?

Penis size is a considerable concern for men of all ages. Primarily length is the most significant concern, yet circumference is also important to most men when it comes to sexual pleasure for both partners. Throughout history, the penis has defined masculinity. Discussion of the penis has been deemed taboo, socially unacceptable; and at other times, it is the topic of lighthearted conversation and jokes. The penis length, girth (width) and function, however, have been an issue for men throughout history.

Does Penis Size Matter to Women?

A new study finds that women who have frequent vaginal orgasms are more likely than other women to say they climax more easily with men with larger penises. Women who tend to prefer penile-vaginal intercourse over other types of sex also say the same, researchers reported online in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.

"Male anxiety about penis size may not reflect internalized, culturally arbitrary masculine stereotypes, but an accurate appreciation that size matters to many women — just as men feel legitimate anxiety when they enter the mating market about their intelligence, personality traits, sense of humor, social status, height, wealth, and other traits known to be favored by women across cultures," study researcher Stuart Brody, a psychologist at the University of the West of Scotland, told LiveScience.”

Penis Inches Circumference vs Length

The width (girth) of the penis refers to the circumference of the penis. Girth enhancement refers to a thickening of the width of the penis, or an increase in penile circumference. With Rejuvall? We don’t make you choose – you get both with our procedures!

Does Penile Width or Girth Most to Women in Sexual Satisfaction?

To study the effect of penis width vs. length on female sexual satisfaction, 50 sexually active female undergraduate students were asked which felt better, was penis width or length more important for their sexual satisfaction. None reported they did not know, or that width and length were equally satisfying. A large majority, 45 of 50, reported width was more critical for sexual satisfaction, as opposed to penis length.The reason women feel width is more important is unknown but it is possibly related to clitoral stimulation that occurs with a thick base when a having sexual intercourse.

Penis Size: Survey of female perceptions of sexual satisfaction

Test Procedure

To test the notion of the possible importance of length inches vs.width or circumference and female sexual satisfaction, two male undergraduate college students - both popular athletes on campus - surveyed 50 female undergraduate college students, considered by the two males to be sexually active, based on the males' prior social experience and knowledge of the females.

Study Results Penile Size - Inches Satisfaction

The female students ranged in age from 18 to 25 years old. In person or via telephone, the females were asked "In having sex, which feels better, length of penis or width of penis?" In half the cases, the word "width" was used before the word "length," but there were no order effects. There were also no effects for telephone vs. personal interview. All female participants answered the question, perhaps because they personally knew the student asking the question.
