    It seems to me that generally, a penis' flaccid size is about 2/3 of it's erect size, like a 9 inch cock is when 6 inches flaccid, a 13 inch cock is 9 inches flaccid, etc.

    Anyway, my flaccid size is very disproportionate to my erect size, I'm 7.25 inches erect but only 2.5 inches flaccid, seriously. I've also noticed that my balls are disproportionately small. I was wondering if anyone else has something like this, or perhaps the opposite where your flaccid size is almost the same as your erect size (Norm McDonald has claimed on the Howard Stern show that this is the case with him).

    Yes, I follow your 2/3 forula - 5.5 flacid and 7.75 - 8.0 erect (check out my gallery pics),

    But this is no "Hard and Fast," excuse the pun, Rule :biggrin1:

    That's right. It different for every guy. A small flaccid penis can grow larger than a large flaccid penis etc.

    I'm sure the ratio is different for everyone but I'm 1.5" soft and 4" hard...I'm a real grower.

    The ratios vary greatly. Excitement level. Periods of activity, and also temperature conditions.

    Far too many variables to establish any hard and fast rules.

    2/3 of an increase seems about right. I'm 5-6" soft and ~8" hard.

    But then there are apparently growers and showers so nothing is an absolute rule. But maybe for most people 2/3 is the usual increase from flaccid to hard.

    I'm an extreme grower. Some days I make 2 inches, somedays I'm a complete turtle. Ends up at 5".

    Same here jason,

    Me too. I'm 3.5 - 4 flaccid and 7 - 7.5 erect. This annoys me though because when I change after sport it seems like I have a small penis compared to others.

    That's a respectable length flaccid or erect. You have nothing to be ashamed of. Both measurements are above average even if it does not seem so to you.

    Intersting site. I vary between 5" and 6" soft and just over 8.5" erect.

    Turtling means pretty much what it says. The flaccid penis shrinks into the body so far that it becomes a nub with a thick collar of skin around it resembling a turtle with its head pulled in.
