How big is the average dick?


If you've watched porn, you might have found yourself comparing your own penis size to those you're seeing on screen. It's super important to remember that there's a reason those people are the ones who end up in the videos - and it's usually because their penises are much larger than average.

In real life, penises come in a much bigger variety. And just like everything else in the world, there are different people who are into all the different things on the spectrum! Some people like to get fucked by a big dick, others prefer fat dicks or skinny dicks, or they might like a small one that perfectly hits their pleasure spot. And some people don't like being penetrated at all!

So, what's the average dick size?

Firstly, you should know that people are notoriously bad at reporting their own size. A study by the Kinsey Institute in 1989 found that all of the participants who initially claimed an erect cock length of ten inches or more turned out to have a considerably smaller cock length. One participant even claimed to have an 11 inch dick, but it turned out to actually be 6.5 inches when measured!

The same study found that 30% of American men had the wrong idea about how long the average penis is, with the majority believing it to be eight to twelve inches long (which is fucking huge and extremely uncommon!).

You might have seen data from 1948, where Professor Alfred Kinsey published results from 3,500 self-measured men and found 65.7% to be between 5.5 and 6.5 inches in length, with the average just over 6 inches. It turned out that allowing people to measure their own penises wasn't scientifically accurate (no surprises there!), and so when an additional 300 men who were measured by researchers, it was found that the average size was more likely to be around 5.5 inches (this is just one study though - keep reading).

Even porn stars don't always list their penis size correctly. So if you're watching someone with a 7 inch dick but they tell you it's actually 9 inches, you might start to think your own penis measurement is smaller than it actually is. The only way to really know is to measure!

Dick and Balls

There is no scientific consensus on other body parts being indicative of cock size, such as the size of a person’s feet, hands or nose.

How do I measure my dick?

There's a standard method for measuring a penis, which urologists use to fit patients for penile implants. This method is to place a ruler firmly against the pubic bone on the top side of the erect penis and measure to the tip of the head. Don't measure from underneath or on the side.

The size of a flaccid penis is not indicative of what size it will be when it gets hard. However, you can get a rough estimation of what a penis’ erect length will be if you stretch the flaccid penis out and measure it. But as we all know, some people are "growers" and some are "showers" - meaning even stretching it out might not always be a useful measurement.

According to researchers who combined the results of 10 different studies in 2021, the size of an average penis is 13.61cm, or 5.36 inches.

Other things you should know:

  • It is extremely uncommon to have a condition called micropenis (an erect length of 7cm or less), or just under three inches.
  • Likewise, it is extremely unlikely to have a penis that is over eight inches long.
  • There is no scientific consensus on other body parts being indicative of cock size, such as the size of a person’s feet, hands or nose.
  • Most studies measure Caucasian penises, so it is hard to work out a truly international average penis size.

Do Black guys have bigger dicks?

Research cited in Penis Size and Enlargement by Gary Griffin notes that Black and white people have penises that are comparable in average erect length. Erect Black penises are larger on average than white penises, however only by ¼ of an inch, or about half a centimetre. He explains that the difference lies predominantly in the flaccid state - Black penises, when soft, are larger on average than Caucasian penises that are soft.

Are gay dicks bigger than straight dicks?

In 1999, researchers in the US found that gay men are likely to have an average dick size of 6.32 inches when erect, compared to 5.99 inches in straight men. Likewise, gay men were found to have penises that average 0.15 inches larger in circumference. However - as with Professor Kinsey's 1948 report - this data was self-reported, so it's unclear how accurate this is. It may only indicate that gay men are more likely to exaggerate their penis size!

 


At the end of the day, it’s not the size of the wave but the motion of the ocean! Studies by Masters and Johnson found that men with erections of less than two inches were still able to satisfy their partners. And remember that sex isn't just about putting a penis in a hole. Fingers and mouths can be used for sexual stimulation, and sex toys aren't just for solo masturbation - you can also use them on a (consenting) partner.

So if you really want something to measure, measure pleasure!
