how does your dick measure up?

how does your dick measure up?

Well I needed some hits, so what else was I supposed to do? Write some news, or a thought-provoking article on cabbage, or comment on this or that aspect of modern life? Or just start talking about my dick?

Well that’s a no-brainer: dick = hits and don’t you forget it!


. For women and their breasts it’s a bit more clear-cut: although breasts can be fluffed up with the right undergarments, it is not that difficult to see how yours compare to everybody else’s. But getting a look at another man’s erect member is a difficult job indeed.

The average woman has seen vastly more erect penises that the average man. We get to see only one in detail, and usually from a non-flattering angle. So we gaze at other men and wonder – how does mine measure up? And although everyone says “It’s not how big it is, it’s what you do with it”, we all know this is just some garbage made up by men with little peanuts. Let us apply the same logic to, say, the world’s tallest building, and see how far that gets us.

penis.jpgSo we are reduced to peeking at articles in our girlfriend’s Cosmo, or searching for “penis” on the Internet with one hand poised ready to clear the browsing history before the missus gets home. And now and again we stumble across those articles and surveys disclosing the size of the nation’s collective knob.

Now, I suspect these may not be so reliable simply because, in most of these surveys, they just ASK the men how big their dicks are. I mean, come on! You think that is going to give you any honest answers? And anyway, it’s impossible to know how to measure it properly. A good deal of the dick is under the surface of the skin, and if you pull it out a bit before applying the tape-measure, you can normally squeeze out another inch or two.

Penis measuring is a science in itself, as you can see by searching on Google for “How to measure your penis”. (Warning: do NOT go to Google and search for “How to measure your penis” unless you want to stumble into a deeply unsettling, neon-light-blinking part of the Internet.)

here are the results…

In order to expedite the writing process of this communication, I have followed the same format of previous editions. A number of topics, however, are covered in slightly greater depth than before and I have introduced three new graphics.


In a number of the analyses that follow, penis size has been classified according to the subject’s perceived endowment status (ref. question 43 of the questionnaire). The dimensions of this “self-ranked endowment status” are summarized in the table below.

Erect Length 141.5mm (5.6″) MODEST 161.8mm (6.4″)AVERAGE 181.1mm (7.1″)ENDOWED
Erect Circumference 117.6mm (4.6″) 127.4mm (5.0″) 137.8mm (5.4″)

With the exception of “Penis Size and Age” and “On Circumcision, the analyses discussed below pertain to adult subjects, 18 years of age and older.

The inclusion of minimal, and particularly maximal penile dimensions have caused many of you to question the validity of my data. Blatantly fraudulent responses (from 17 year old lawyers or those claiming “American Zulu warrior” ancestry, for example) are excluded from entry into the database as are penis lengths in excess of 360mm (14.2″). As an additional safeguard, the bottom 1% (for those 18 years and older) and top 2% (for all age groups) of each of the five penile measurements studied have also been excluded from the analysis. I realize that this is a rather conservative approach, but the fact that my results are very close to that reported by Kinsey et al. and the almost symmetric distribution of erect penis lengths, leads me to suspect that any residual and unavoidable contamination has been kept to a minimum.

How to Measure Your Penis?
Measure penisBefore you start any penis enlargement program, it is very important to measure and record the size of your penis. Many men would like to know how long or how fat their cock is, but few know how to take proper measurements. Using the methods described below you can finally get a medically-accurate measurement of your penis size.

Finding your penis length

Measure Penis LegthPenis length is defined as the linear distance along the dorsal side of the erect penis extending from the mons veneris to the tip of the glans. In terms you and I would understand, this means the penis length is measured in a straight line on the top side of the erect penis, from the skin of your belly to the tip of your penis. Penis circumference is defined as the linear distance around the widest, thickest, part of the erect penis (see below).

1. Stimulate yourself using your method of choice until your cock is hard as a rock.
2. Place your ruler on the skin of your belly, at the base of your erect penis. Do not press in against your belly, why cheat yourself?
3. Press the ruler against your penis and read the nearest quarter-inch measurement at the tip of your penis.
4. Record this number, and keep this paper in a safe place.

Finding your penis circumference

Measure Penis GirthPenis length is not the only factor in determining penis size. The width, girth, or fatness, of a penis is also an important aspect when considering how you compare. Most people have a penis that is either longer and thinner, or shorter and fatter. Use the instructions below to determine your penile circumference (distance around the widest part of your penis).

1. Stimulate yourself using your method of choice until your cock is hard as a rock.
2. Place a fabric ruler or a string end at the widest part of your penis and wrap it carefully around one time. Mark the spot where the string first touches itself.
3. If using string, take the marked string and lay it against the ruler. Read to the nearest quarter-inch measurement.
4. Record this number on your paper.

Calculate your new penis sizeLess than 6 inches? Now that’s a problem. Fortunately there are solutions to this one. OK, there are numerous ways to enlarge penis. But which way to choose? There are different techniques, each have pros and cons. Check our convinient "how-to-enlarge" guide for more details. OR! If you know how to enlarge, or if you only need a result no matter what technique to use - check this Penis Enlargement Comparison Chart.

Even if you are larger than 6", you can think about penis enlargement. A larger than average penis (6.7" +) allows you to benefit from many factors.

Before you start any program, you should have a good sense of where you're at BEFORE you begin exercising. This means taking accurate measurements, not cheating or rounding any numbers up. The more accurate you are when you measure your penis initially the more you'll notice the differences when you begin to grow.

Please note that all measurements are expressed in metric units with corresponding imperial units in brackets. VITAL PENIS STATISTICS FOR MEN 18 YEARS AND OLDER

Figure 3 illustrates the bell-shaped distribution of erect penis lengths, thereby justifying the use of the parametric statistical tests that follow.


To determine more precisely how you compare with the 2,545 adult subjects who participated in this survey, I have divided the data into percentiles of 10 percentile increments. If, for example, your erect penis measures 155 mm, the table below indicates that this size falls between the 40th and 50th percentile. In other words, at least 40% of the men fell below this value and at least 50% were above. In the upcoming expanded version of this edition, the chart below has been replaced by three graphs which provide an even greater degree of precision.
0 25(1.0″) 68(2.7″) 60(2.4″)
10 50(2.0″) 125(4.9″) 95(3.7″)

70 100(3.9″) 176(6.9″) 140(5.5″)

Since the release of the fifth edition, the number of Black and Hispanic participants has not substantially increased. Because of the continued low sample sizes therefore, the results reported below concerning the aforementioned groups must be considered tentative, pending a larger number of responses.

Surprisingly, it would appear from Figure 5, that contrary to popular myth, Black males have shorter erect lengths than their Caucasian counterparts. However, due to the small sample size and large variation in lengths, this “difference” is not statistically significant. The average flaccid length among Blacks however was 93.8mm (3.7″) compared to 87.7mm (3.4″) for Caucasians, which may be responsible for the impression that Black men have greater erect dimensions. Again, I emphasize that these observations must remain tentative.

There was a significant difference in length between Caucasians and both Hispanic and East Asians (those of Chinese, Japanese, Korean or Vietnamese descent). Whereas with Hispanics, such a difference was limited to erect length only, with East Asians all five measurements were statistically lower in comparison to Caucasians. Although part of this difference may be due to the shorter stature of East Asians (see “On Correlations” below), height matched comparisons with Caucasian subjects nevertheless failed to alter this finding.

The figure to the left summarizes the results of question 44, in which men were asked to rate members of their own ethnic group with respect to size. Of particular interest was the response of East Asian subjects. Among East Asians residing in the East, 31% felt that they were generally of modest size, compared to 56% of those living in the West. This is probably due to the fact that Western countries tend to be more racially diverse, allowing for greater interaction and hence comparison with men of different ethnic backgrounds. It is also interesting to note that the vast majority of Black subjects stated that they tended to be well endowed; an opinion which was not borne out by the results of this study.

I was initially surprised by the number of responses from teenagers and, although my survey wasn’t specifically designed to detect changes in penis size during puberty, the data collected so far has revealed some rather interesting findings.

As of this edition, and as illustrated in Figure 7, average erect penis length increased until the age of 16, a finding that marks a departure from the five previous editions of this page, which reported that such a developmental milestone occurred at age 17. With respect to adolescent lengths, it is interesting to note that the results presented here are almost identical to that of another online survey, the results of which are located at The apparent variation in average size between the ages of 16 to 49 was due to random sampling error and was not statistically significant..

The situation with regard to erect penis length beyond the age of 50 remains somewhat nebulous. According to the graph below, there was essentially no difference in size with respect to younger age groups. However, I have detected a progressive, yet slight decline in length among older men in this group. Unfortunately, due to the modest sample size of such individuals, it was not possible to determine whether this was a statistical anomaly or an anatomical consequence of the aging process.


The data indicates that during an erection, the average increase in penis size was 197.9%. However, for men whose flaccid penis measured 80 mm (3.1″) or less, the increase was 263.2%, compared to 165.3% for those greater than this length (p<0.0001). This principle is demonstrated in Figure 8, which reveals a strong negative correlation between flaccid length and the percent increase during an erection.

It is also interesting to note that there was less variation in erect penis lengths relative to flaccid lengths. This convergence in penis size is illustrated by comparing the coefficient of variation (CV), a unitless measure of variability obtained by dividing the standard deviation by the mean and expressing the result as a percentage. The CV for flaccid lengths was 31.4 whereas in the erect state it decreased to 19.5.

When erect the position of greatest girth was as follows; head 36%, uniform 32%, base 25% and some other location 7%.

Forty eight per cent stated that their penis was straight when erect, 28% reported a deviation to the left or right and 24% claimed to have a bend (presumably in the shaft).

Unlike a previously published study in the medical literature, I did not detect a significant difference in erect length (or the other four measurements) between circumcised and uncircumcised individuals.

Overall, 70% of the subjects were circumcised, 27% were uncircumcised and 3% did not specify their circumcision status. Of the 633 men responding outside of the U.S.A. and Canada who specified their status, 64% were uncircumcised. Not unexpectedly, this compares to 40% of Canadians and only 15% of Americans.

The proportion of those claiming to be content, neutral or discontent concerning their circumcision status was almost equal between the two groups (approximately 66%, 21% and 13% respectively). Among those who were content however, there was a striking difference with regard to sexual orientation. Seventy-two per cent of circumcised straight males expressed contentment with their circumcision status while only 58% of circumcised gay or bisexuals felt the same way (p<0.001).

With the rather impressive number of responses I have amassed since the inception of this survey, I have detected that, on average, there exists a strong relationship between erect penis length and height, as illustrated in Figure 9. For the purposes of demonstrating possible correlations between length and various hand and foot measurements, it became necessary to control for this phenomena by performing a partial correlation between length and the various measurements in question. The results of such an analysis are presented below.

With the exception of shoe size, there exists a significant but weak correlation for each of the body parts studied. (Please note that questions regarding nose length and width are recent additions to the survey, and at the time of this writing I had insufficient data to perform a reliable statistical analysis.)

Figure 10 reveals the significant relationship between erect length and circumference.

If you want to find out how your penis stacks up against the average man's, the best way to do it is to find out what is average and then pull out the ruler to see how you compare. You know that the average penis is somewhere around six inches, give or take. Therefore, the only thing left for you to do is to take an honest self-measurement and compare it to average. Here is a short tutorial on how to measure your penis the right way, because there are many wrong ways.

The best way to measure your penis is standing up with a full erection. If your penis angles upward when erect, push it down with one hand until it is parallel with the floor. Next, take the ruler or tape measure with your other hand and lay it across the top of your penis with the zero end lightly touching the skin beneath your pubic hair. Do not jam the ruler into your pubic bone, which is what many men do to gain an extra half-inch or more.

The resulting measurement is the most accurate gauge of your true penis size.

It probably will not be as big as it was when you measured it in the past using incorrect techniques such as holding the ruler beside your penis against your hip bone, measuring along the underside of your penis, or using the infamous "anus to tip" method made popular by men on Internet hook-up sites.

However, keep in mind that the typical man who claims an impressively large penis size is probably utilizing one of these incorrect methods himself.

Now that you know how to measure your penis properly, you should be able to make an informed decision about whether penis enlargement techniques are something that could help you have a more satisfying sex life. I hope I have provided you with helpful information.

If you are tired of being average or below and want to add impressive size to your penis FAST without pills or surgery, here is a link to the step-by-step method that helped me gain three inches in a matter of months:

As in previous editions of this communication, body builders tended to be more endowed than “couch potatoes” (170.5mm or 6.7″ vs. 160.7mm or 6.3″ p<0.001).

In addition, the difference in flaccid length between those who are reluctant to potentially expose their penis to public scrutiny and those who are not remained strong (81.0mm or 3.2″ vs. 89.6mm or 3.5″ respectively p<0.001). A larger difference however, existed with respect to erect lengths (166.8mm or 6.6″ vs. 153.3mm or 6.1″ respectively p<0.001). A similar relationship was seen with regard to potential exposure to male family members.

As illustrated in figure 11, well endowed men had more sexual partners per year than their average or modestly endowed counterparts. The data reveals that these men were more self-confident which may, in part, explain this finding.

As illustrated in figure 12, a striking difference existed in the response pattern between gay/bisexual men and straight men when these individuals viewed a well endowed male (ref. survey question 47). Gay and bisexual men tended more to express arousal (36%) or awe (28%), while straight men were more likely to be indifferent (29%) or envious (21%). Among both groups, those who were indifferent had significantly larger erect penises than those who felt either intimidation or inadequacy (p<0.001).
