In order to provide a perfectly accurate answer, researchers conducted anatomically precise measurements of a massively large study group: 15,521 men from all over the globe. And as the team concluded, it actually takes less than you could have imagined making you statistically well-endowed.
For the average erect penis, researchers found that the average length was 5.16 inches (or 13.12 centimeters) while the circumference measured an average of 4.59 inches (or 11.66 cm). The team also measured their subjects in flaccid state and concluded that the average length for a flaccid penis was 3.61 inches (9.16 cm) with a circumference of 3.66 inches (9.31 cm).
The team of scientists also included specific graphs in their published paper, which could allow doctors to show their otherwise concerned patients, in which percentile they belong and that there is no need for them to dwell on their insecurities.
And although such a study might seem to be a wasted effort, the researchers assure that there are valid reasons behind its conduction. On the one side, the research team from King’s College London and South London said, they wanted to provide the necessary tools for doctors to be able to efficiently address the issues that their patients, suffering from “body dysmorphic disorder” or “small penis size anxiety”, face. Additionally, the massive set of data could also have practical applications as condom manufacturers the world over could review their designs in order to obtain even higher success rates.
“The nomograms may be helpful clinically and in research to determine the discrepancy between what a man perceives to be their position on the nomogram and their actual position.”
the paper wrote, underlining that when faced with such a normogram, 71% of men suffering from “small penis anxiety” actually revisit their insecurities and feel reassured about themselves.
The research team also conducted an exhaustive investigation of the literature available before conducting the study, so as to accurately define inclusion and exclusion criteria for their subjects. As such, men were at least 17 years old, had no physical abnormalities of their genitalia and suffered no erectile dysfunctions.
Such results could, of course, only work in the favor of men everywhere who doubt the size of their manhood. They can now rest assured, having received the confidence boost they needed from this massive study.
The research team finally mentions that such a study might actually prove to be a double-edged sword since some patients might actually feel somehow defective when learning that their size is lower than the average. They note that in the case of body dysmorphic disorder patients, further psychiatric assistance is required (as opposed to patients suffering from “small penis anxiety”).
