Phalli Largest Penis Naturally we begin with the topic foremost on mens minds. The average penis size for white males is about 6.2 inches, so if you don't quite measure up, dont worry: penis size has relatively little to do with ones capacity to pleasure. Remember: it aint the meat, its the motion. The largest erect member in medical literature would be the 14-inch organ mentioned by Dr. David Reuben in his book Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex (1969). Reuben didnt divulge any source for this figure, and there was no independent verification, so you may question his accuracy. The largest medically verified penis on record is 13.5 inches long and 6.25 inches around, documented in the early twentieth century by Dr. Robert L. Dickinson. Other sources (Alfred Kinsey, Masters and Johnson, etc.) mention specimens ranging from 9.5 to 12 inches. Then there are the dubious claims of immense penis size by various personages operating within the sex industry (read: porn actors). These claims are almost invariably false, the result of exaggeration and hype by unscrupulous dealers hoping to hawk more products. Take the legendary Long Dong Silver, for instance. Made famous by the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill hearings, his one enduring trait was his supposedly 18-inch penis. Totally fraudulent, as it turns out; in fact, there are videos in which he appears only normal sized. Incidentally, if you wish to pursue this matter on your own (anticipating a slow weekend, perhaps?) you measure along the top. Largest Penis by Race "It is generally said that the penis of the Negro is very large," so wrote German anthropologist Johann Friedrich Blumenbach in 1795. "And this assertion is so far borne out by the remarkable genitory apparatus of an Ethiopian which I have in my anatomical collection." Louis Jacolliet, a 19th century French writer who spent three decades investigating penis size, had this to say: "In no branch of the human race are the male organs more developed than in the African Negro." Certainly, the belief in the well-endowment of the African race has an extensive history. But is it justified by the facts? Going strictly by the Kinsey data, which still remains one of the most exhaustive studies on penis size to date, the average white male has a penis measuring 6.2 inches long and 3.7 inches around, whereas the average black male has a penis 6.3 by 3.8 inches, for a difference of 0.1 inches--not what you'd call statistically significant. When it came to flaccid length, however, blacks fared a little better: 4.3 inches long, versus 4.0 inches for white males. So it may be, therefore, that while those of African heritage appear larger initially, under actual working conditions things tend to even out. You should consider this a tentative hypothesis rather than a scientific fact, as there were only 59 black respondents to the survey, versus 2,500 for whites. Smallest Penis There are several instances in medical literature of penises that do not exceed 1 cm when fully erect, which doctors call an (ahem) "micropenis." Those unfortunate enough to be equipped with these diminutive organs can undergo reconstructive surgery to extend it to about 3 inches, which I guess is an improvement. Smallest Penis by Race Inhabiting the low end of the penile spectrum are those of the Asian persuasion, specifically those of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, or Vietnamese descent. Hard data supporting this claim comes from The Definitive Penis Size Survey, a website maintained by Richard Edwards and dedicated to answering the imponderable mysteries surrounding man's most cherished appendage (the mysteries related to size, anyway). Among the interesting tidbits we gleam from his work, now in its sixth edition, is a graph correlating different erect sizes with race. The final tally: Caucasians on average measure 6.5 inches (16.5 cm), whereas the average Asian measures--5.5 inches (14 cm). Most Phalli Those who have more than one penis have a condition called diphallasparatus (yes, there are medical names for everything). An extremely rare disorder (fewer than 80 cases have been reported), it has nonetheless been exhaustively investigated by the medically bent. The results of such studies can be summed by the following snappy observations: <LI class=MsoNormal>Those in possession of a diphallus tend to be sterile, due to either congenital defects or difficulties in application. <LI class=MsoNormal>Urine may be passed by both penises, by only one, or, incredibly, through some other aperture in the perineum. <LI class=MsoNormal>All manner of duplications have been met, ranging from organs that fissure into two to the presence of two distinct penises positioned at some distance from each other. Most diphalluses lay side by side and are of equal size, but they can be seated atop one another, with one distinctly larger than the other. Finally, I should note that double the meat doesnt necessarily mean double the fun. Most sufferers are unable to perform sexually, which must be one of the all-time bummers. Still, for those able to function it certainly lends itself to some interesting diversity of technique. Greatest Extension Dr. Jørn Ege Siana, a Danish plastic surgeon who's been in the penis lengthening biz for quite some time (he's performed over 1,100 operations), claims to have set a world record by surgically extending a penis by a full 14.5 cm (5.7 inches). The patient was an unidentified 42-year-old originally outfitted with 1.8-inch tool. After the successful operation he issued a press release and backed up his claim with lurid "before" and "after" pictures, which you may peruse on his website.Jørn credits his achievement to new surgical techniques and later stretching the penis with the JES-Extender, a rack-like device of his own invention that looks more like something the KGB would use to extract a confession than an instrument of post-operative recovery. Siana said, "Admittedly this case is unique, as penis enlargement is typically in the range of five to seven centimeters (2 to 2.7 inches)." Largest Phalli Collection No, the holder of this record is not Lorena Bobbit. In ancient times a passel of penises taken from your vanquished enemies was considered the ultimate post-battle war trophy, displayed with such grisly prominence as you would today the head of an antelope. When Egyptian troops invaded Libya in thirteenth century BC they took home a total of 13,230 penises, and a stone relief in Thebes depicts a band of victors amassing a pile of 3000 phalli before the king. Egyptians weren't the only ones to emasculate their foes. Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, conquered Jerusalem in the sixth century BC and cut from thousands of Jewish prisoners what the rabbis had left behind. Testes Largest Testes The ideal testicle, which we are clearly not talking about here, should measure about 4 cm long and 2 cm broad. Victims of elephantiasis, a disease caused by the obstruction of lymph vessels due to parasitic filarial worms, may find their gonads swelling to the size of a watermelon and beyond. The largest on record is an African whose scrotum weighed 154 lbs. and measured almost 2 ft. in diameter. Fortunately, an available drug called diethylcarbamazine is effective in killing the worm larvae and reducing the swelling. Most Testes The presence of more than two testicles--called polyorchidism by urology buffs--is rare but not unheard of. About 75 cases have been reported to date, most of which possessed three testes. On occasion, however, a mutant is born with four or even five testicles.
