    SRV524: I know the average size is about 5.5-6.5 inches EL, but what about the girth? I've never heard anything about girth and I was wondering about it.

    gigantikok: Yea, average thickness is about the size of a cardboard toilet paper roll.

    Bike2swim: Survey's that are self-measuring generally show about 5" in girth (or slightly more), while survey's that are taken by the surveyors give less: usually about 4.5 to 4.75". So actually 5" would be slightly above average. Another point to consider is that the measurement is usually taken at the widest point, be it head, central shaft or base.

    I don't know...I'v seen alot of men with alot smaller girth than that...Maybe they didn't want to be included on the survey because of it.

    gtgrad2002: I would have to agree with Geo. Most I've seen in lockerrooms looked smaller than that. Also, I know that the Kinsey report was flawed, but it listed the erect girth at a shade below four. Interesting how all these numbers get thrown out by scientists.

    TragicWhiteKnight: I've always heard 4.75"-5" as average; I'd say "what's expected?" is perhaps a better question than "what's average?" Especially for girth which is pretty impossible to estimate (heck, it's hard enough to measure).

    gigantikok: I think it's safe to say that most penis size surveys could be way off kilter. How are we to really know that 5.5-6 inches is an exact number? What if the average is really 5 inches in length? Surveying is not really the most exact science, especially in regards to penises. There are different ways to measure, and people can always lie and embellish. Hell, i can add a WHOLE INCH onto my size by just measuring a different way. And all this can be said in regards to girth. So really, there's absolutely no way to be sure of the actual average or expected girth a penis. Might as well just say 4.5-5 inches around and be happy with that...

    Gigantikok sums it up very well.

    Hmm, I remember Maxim UK saying that if you couldn't fit into a toilet roll tube then you were of porn star dimensions! Maybe your tubes are narrower over there?

    TragicWhiteKnight: Just had a look at the toilet roll in our house and, by jove, it's considerably bigger than me.

    Using the power of maths (probably incorrectly), with a radius of 1.1" - that means the overall circumference is bigger than 6.3", giving me plenty of room to fit inside (i.e. to be beat that is definitely very thick).

    sudas: I don't think "average" is the correct term. I mean 1 billion Chinese might throw off the average. ;) Also, really long or almost not there penis sizes may distort the average as well.

    Mean or median might be a better term. I prefer to think of it as the Caucasian Standard Model. If you look at the poll at chat&photo section, you'll see the breakdown of visitors. The top of the curve is around 7.1-7.5" which would be higher than the general populace because it is biased to those who want to visit a site like this.

    Let me give you another example of average not working. There have been surveys done on how many partners (of opposite sex) a person of certain age has had. Let's say for the sake of argument that they surveyed 100 men and 100 women. If the result was 6 for men and 3 for women, then something is wrong. The averages should be equal. You add up all the results and divide by 100. Perhaps they missed the 6 women who had 50 men each. Avg = (6*50+300)/100 = 6.

    I never thought I'd be pushed to measuring toilet roll tubes, but my Kleenex Double Velvet tube is only 1.6" diameter, giving a mere 5.02" circumference - I think I've seen some a lot bigger, but I couldn't fit when I first tried (it was close, though - prob. 5.8-9" circ.)

    Fascinating. As much as America is used to standards set by the Government (from doorknob height from the floor to the number of steps in a stairway) we have variations in the size of a toilet paper roll!

    I just measured an empty Charmin Double Roll tube's outer diameter and it came to 5 1/2". The Brits are more generous with their cardboard than the Americans are, I guess. Or maybe the Brits have discovered that a larger diameter roll makes for fewer sheets of toilet paper for the money?

    I'm reminded of one of the ways John D. Rockefeller made huge amounts of money by cutting corners. He discovered that one of his barrel factories was welding the lid on with a solid line of weld all around the edge of the lid. He had them tack weld in enough places to keep the lid on and pocketed the savings.

    TechnoTed: Ref: Item 12; Sept 10.
    Aw, tragic white knight, I have good news for you. If your partner's member has an radius of 1.1", which is 2.2" diameter or thickness, I think you said the girth or thickness would be only 6.3" so it would fit inside (your man-cunt?) with room to spare? Well, you will have to spread your lovely but tragic cheeks a little farther because a hard cock 2.2" thick will spread your white knight anus another .6" or 5/8". :eek: And your jaws will be aching for a while after sucking that big cock too. :-*
    If I read you right, you said "a toilet paper roll was considerably bigger than me." Well, your lover will have no problem accepting Your joystick as it is about 3/4" smaller in diameter than his sausage... ;) Do your squeezes and you'll get there too. Good Times.

    serj: You know as I'm sitting here reading this, I realize, what is the improtance of this discussion, why do we care what the average girth is? It realy doesn't matter, what matters is the pussy that's it's going into. If it's loose it's pretty impossible to get outstading satisfaction no matter what your girth is, if the pussy is tight, even if you have below normal girth it should still be good. So we are all worrying about the wrong thing here.

    serj, I've looked at your last 8 posts and in each one you seem to denigrate any and all forms of PE except pills. Each post contains a link to the site you have entered here.

    I'm going to assume that you don't have a financial interest in herbal products (i.e. Vig-Rx, Viacyn, Virility) and that your experience with these, or similar, products is genuine. Many men do have acceptable results from those regimens.

    The point of this support group, however, is that no one person, doctor or herbalist has all the answers. That's why we invite everyone to post his or her experience in response to a question about size, whether length or girth. Herbs may work for some, stretching for others, pumping for still more men.

    Or even a combination of all those and more.

    Thanks for your interest in helping - we want to hear all viewpoints. Just be aware that what may be of no concern to you may be a vexing worry to others.

    It's completely natural for the male to be concerned about his ability to perform or if he will be seen as 'big enough.' The purpose of the current discussion is to let SRV524 know that his worries are for naught.
