British researchers put in the work and measured 15,000 beef batons, and the results are in. The average-sized shaft comes in at a modest 5.16 inches when fully torqued.
From The Guardian:
The enduring question now has a scientific answer: 13.12 centimetres (5.16 inches) in length when erect, and 11.66cm (4.6 inches) around, according to an analysis of more than 15,000 penises around the world.
In a flaccid state, it found, the penis of the average man is 9.16cm (3.6 inches) in length and has a girth of 9.31cm (3.7 inches).
The study participants were men aged 17 to 91 who had their penises measured in 20 previously published studies conducted in Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States.
The team found no evidence for penis size differences linked to race, though most of the study participants were of European and Middle Eastern descent and a full comparison could thus not be made.Nor did the researchers find any convincing correlation between a man’s foot size and the length of his manhood.
Really thorough stuff, you guys.
I always find research like this amusing. I swear the number gets smaller with each passing study. Also, imagine the poor bastard in charge of putting measuring tape on up to 15,000 dongs. Nothing would kill small talk faster than describing what he or she does for a living.
The majority of you reading this are surely resting easy, as, according to the study, only about 2 percent of men have abnormally small trouser snakes. Regardless of where you stack up against this study, you should never have doubt in your dick game. Whether you’re walking around with a $5 footlong or a tuna can in your pants, you need to own your equipment..
