    I'm just curious if anyone knows of any [free] size galleries on the web. Something that would show an assortment of penes and list their actual sizes. And maybe showing at least a little of the body for proper perspective.

    I view "average" as a range of sizes, rather than a specific number (as if half the men in the world have exactly the same penis!), but as a man who falls on the lower end of that average, it would be nice to know what the different sizes look like without having to ask everyone in the locker room tomorrow to pop a boner. ;)

    Maybe we could start a comparison page here... j/k. I hope people don't think I'm looking for j/o material here. I am truly curious.

    Average is actually not a range, but a number. If you add up all the lengths of penises in the world and divide by the number of penises, then you get the average. There can be only one average of any particular group.

    Average has nothing to do with "normal" either (despite what tv new weather readers). Barring a medical condition, almost everyone has a normal penis, whether they're 1/4 inch or 14 inches long. But there are relatively very few average penises.

    Off my statistical soap box and to actually answer the question - nope, don't know of any such sites myself.

    Chrisung you are so right. Stats used from studies indicating a range and their intermingling with 'normal' make no real sense.
    Many of the studies have biased samples and or measurement techniques.
    One of the posts on a LPSG size thread was from an escort who I think gave as realistic a call as there is based on his clientel.
    One internet sight featured over a thousand twenty year old models, very few of which were much over 5 inches erect.
    Throw a 10 incher in with a bunch of 5 inchers and you get a skewing but you get a precise (numerical) average.
    So the "average" is anywhere between x and y really means (mode) most fall or the most common lenghts measured fall between x and y
    Personally I think that this average (adding lengths dividing by # of participants) is close to 5 inches with most despite imaginary inflation, falling between 4.5 and 6 inches.

    I know, technically, what an average is. The word is always used differently when referring to penises, though. (When someone says, "Mine is average," they don't usually mean, "Mine is exactly 5.33467821 inches, the quotient of the sum of the lengths of all existing penes and the number of penes." They usually mean simply, "Mine falls within a common range.") Instead of trying to change the way a million people talk about it, I simply expanded my definition to reduce my own cognitive dissonance. I didn't realize I'd get reamed for doing that.

    ever seen this?
    http://www.erectionphotos.com/frames_index.htm

    Not what I'd call pretty dicks for the most part, but plenty in the 5.3" range. I think an average dick is like an average face. We all know them when we see them, but if you think about it, what is an average experience of a human face?

    I meant no reaming either!! (well, not the bad kind anyway - evil grin)

    Using "average" doesn't happen just with penises - people say they're of average height, average coloring, average weight, whatever. Just because people do it doesnt mean I have to like it (e.g. "straight sex" - ew, gross).

    And the pet peeve really was supposed to be about using "normal" and "average" as interchangable.

    Go to the following website to view statistics and photos of hard and soft states of each penis, as well as a variety of poses indoors and outdoors. It also has photos of the different kinds of curved penises and those slanted down and those slanted upward, etc.

    Thanks Nomad for starting this topic.

    Several years ago I posted on "Erection Photos."

    I am the 62 year old on page three of the Hard/Soft Gallery.

    As someone else has pointed out, this site clearly displays a wide variety of penis sizes/angles and bends.

    It is a very informative, and hopefully honest site.

    I enjoyed visiting it once again.
