6 Things That Are The Same Length As The Average Penis

You know we love scientific studies over here, especially the super official ones that claim things like “Oral sex is pointless.” It’s time for another study, and this one is a little more fun.

The Journal of Sexual Medicine surveyed 1,661 men to determine the average length of a male’s penis. Upon reading the headline, I had a lot of questions about said penis study. Is it measured when flaccid or erect? Is shrinkage a factor? What points exactly are we measuring from? Is 1,661 men enough to find a true average? Does size really matter?

The study revealed that the penises (penii?) were measured when erect, and the average was 5.6 inches. I thought it would be good to put this size into perspective. I measured some things around my apartment to see what matched, so here are things that are roughly the same size as the average penis:

    Well I have a 6.5 inch penis when achieving a full on boner. I’d be surprised if this study is true because I have a pretty small flaccid penis in relationship to most teammates while playing sports. But I love my size ;)

      Actually, this is an accurate number and not something that gurl.com just decided to post. In a study of 500,000 men; 5.6 inches is the average penis size in the USA.
