    Ok, so I used to think I had a small penis (due to length being a bit below 6).

    However i've had a few comments over the years about being big.

    And my girth is above average and width especially.

    So does a 5.3-5.5 girth and a 1.9-2 inch wide penis count as what? Sorta big?

    (note: These are accurate measurements)

    ie what do I say when asked about penis size?

    I pass the toilet paper roll test (can't fit inside and would stick out the end if i could) and from what I understand 2 width is considered pretty big.

    ps:- I get that on this forum that's not big, but in the real world?

    Yeah, i figured taht... It's just that well. Currently in a small town. Rumours about me having a large penis are starting to circulate. On the one hand. :D. On the other... I'd rather not people think I have a large penis if I actually don't. ^^

    ps:- Cue obligatory, /shrug penis size stuff.

    length = average
    girth above average

    width above average


    I think average width is 1.5" or so

    Toilet paper roll test is pretty much all you need to show you're in the upper-end of girth. Even at skinnier toilet paper rolls and less-forgiving studies, you're at least 80th percentile if you cannot fit.
    I ran some numbers a while ago based only on reputable studies and their median length/girth with standard deviations. A standard deviation is the average amount something varies from the average by, e.g. if a study had only 2 dicks: a 5" and a 7" long one, their average would be 6" with a standard deviation of 1". If another study had a 4" and an 8", the average is the same but the SD is 2". In short, it gives you a clear idea of how much things vary by. Personally I don't see any value in comparing a human measurement to an average if you don't know the SD.
    In terms of our perception, we do tend to organize naturally by SD. Within 1 SD is usually considered a 'typical' range, and is where (usually) about 68% of people will fall. About 95% of people will be between 2 SDs, and 99.74% of people will be within 3 (eg only about 0.13% of people would be larger than 3 SDs from a mean.)
    So to relate to adjectives describing how you'd perceive something, -3SDs is tiny, -2SDs is small, -1SD is smaller, 0SD is medium, +1SD is bigger, +2SDs is big, and +3SD is huge.

    So the ranges I came up with based on reliable data are for length:
    Median: 5.5", SD: 0.7"
    -3 dev : 3.4"
    -2 dev : 4.1"
    -1 dev : 4.8"
    0 : 5.5"
    +1 dev : 6.2"
    +2 dev : 6.9"
    +3 dev : 7.5"

    For girth:
    Median: 4.65", SD: 0.5"
    -3 : 3.15"
    -2 : 3.65"
    -1 : 4.15"
    0: 4.65"
    +1: 5.15"
    +2: 5.65"
    +3: 6.15"

    One thing to note is that this model breaks down somewhat at the tail-ends of the range. There are many diseases + defects that prevent genital growth, so there are a lot more guys under the -3 SDs than this would suggest. Studies also consistently show that the distribution drops off very quickly on the small end (not including those afflicted by abnormal growth), but is distributed more evenly on the longer range.
    e.g. you'll see in the Lifestyles study how the graph is pretty level in the 7"-8" length range.

    You can also go to a sex toy website, lookup a dildo with your (insertable) measurements, then see how many people there are saying "wow that's big" and such.

    In my experience, a big penis is largely (heheh) relative.

    Ok cool thanks for info all. Yep i've done the sex toy website... general concensus is that 5+(girth) is big for a dildo. 6+(girth) is huge.

    And the toilet paper rolls i use are the 5.5 ones (though they're 5.5 on the outside) inside diameter is less. Though even with a 5.5 i may not fit as i'm kinda flat penis shaped. Ie if my penis was a circle with a width of 1.9 i'd be about 6 in cirumference.


    pps:- I'm 6.1 BP'd 5.6NBP in length. Girth seems to fluctuate between 5.2-5.5 mostly around 5.3-5.4 though. Though yeah it's all relative really.

    I was going to try for an incestuous pun, but I've been exhausted by another thread & my heart's just not in it...

    For those who experience very cold conditions, but who do not have proper knitted or fleecy willy-warmers, size can be defined by the socks you use instead:

    Low ankle socks = small
    Calf length socks = average
    Knee length socks = large
    Thigh length stockings = very large

    I think the OP is a bit average. I think i big one (according to a chick) depends on who shes fucked before you, accompanied with what she hears from her friends or sees in porn. So responses about your dick size may vary, but i personally think you're decent sized
