    I an currently having my first encounter with a large penis. Prior to that all of my partners had been in the 5-7inch range except one that was less that 4 inches(but rather good at sex as it happens). Therefore I assume that average is 5-7inches.

    What would you consider to be average and why?
    Have you encountered a lot of large penises, or just the one?
    Have you experience of smaller than usual ?

    If it's not too late, you should make this a poll. :wink:

    There has been a lot of research done on this subject over the years. However, most of it was not proper scientific study because it relied upon volunteers self measuring. That came up with some of the biggest averages:biggrin1: Then there have been surveys where men were measured by reserchers. At least that meant the measuring was objective. However, the men were volunteers, and it is reasonable to suggest that men who feel confident that they have a good sized penis are more likely to volunteer. Those surveys did produce a smaller average though - somewhere around 5.5" or 5.7" I think. But I still think that a proper scientific survey would have to include a sample of the population which includes all the guys who would usually prefer to keep it hidden their pants. I think you might then see a real average as being around 5" or perhaps less, who knows? Will we ever know?

    As for girth: I think you only have to look at popular condoms to see what seems to fit most guys. I find standard Mates and Durex condoms a bit tight since I grew to my current mid shaft girth of 5.25", although they were snug but ok when I was just a shade under 5"girth.

    I'm suggesting that the average erect penis has a length of of somewhere between 5" and 5.5" (ruler pressed against pubic bone) and a mid shaft erect girth of 4.75"

    There are a lot of guys (and girls) on this site who talk about anything less than 8"X6" as not being very big, but we have to keep it in perspective. That is a huge penis. I know there are a few with bigger than that, but they are extemely extremely rare. In the real world (as opposed to the LPSG world) a 7"X5" can get you a reputation for being hung, and is the kind of size that might be 'average' among porn stars.

    Zaza, the numbers you gave are generally considered an average range. In my considerable experience (read: I'm a Ho), that's about right. I have seen quite a few bigger and quite a few smaller.

    Well the studys say 5 to 5.5 inches is the average (depending on the study). As these numbers are reflected in a lot of studies I think it must be close to the truth and from what I have seen it seems to be correct.

    As for myself at 6.75"x5.5" I sometimes feel too small, sometimes average, and other times feel quite big. It all depends on my mood I guess, and it just goes to show how much of all this talk (both LSPG.org and Measurection.com) is more about what's in our heads and not whats between our legs.

    Hope you are having fun with your first large encounter. :)

    An average is:

    total length of all penises/number of penises

    eg there are 4 guys, with 4, 5, 5.5, and 6.5 inch penises

    The average is 5.25 inches in length.

    That's an example, not that I'm a maths nut, but an average isn't 5-7 or 4-6.5 inches...its more exact.

    I myself think the average is definitely <6" and more like equal to or below 5.5" from all the surveys.

    The reason I gave a range is because there is more than one study on it and they all come out with different averages. Some came out with larger averages but they were studies done with men measuring themselves, and well all know that most men (and wierdly enough most women when talking about there significant others) will exaggerate. :)

    The average is 5.5, as everyone else has said.

    Honestly, I've been with all sizes. Most are HUGE and then SMALL. lol I've not been with many "average."

    or maybe I just consider the average to be small...lol

    It is generally accepted hat you need a sample group of > 1000 to get a picture of what is going on. There aren't that many women who can claim this - though professional girls are probably the best placed to respond on experience.

    You could have a fascinating weekend researching the surveys on the web - but to precis them for you, they range from 5.1 to 6.4. The lower being a small sample and the larger being self measured. You are safe to go somewhere in between.

    Girth is apparently in the 4.75 range and a lack of girth seems to be accepted as what can lead to disappointment.

    Thank you for replying.

    I know all about the surveys and what they conclude, but I was wanting to know about personal experience.

    I suppose if my present boyfriend was my first and only I would assume that all men were his size. I guess that can happen too.

    There have been a variety of studies done on Penis size, with "Average" lentgh generally ranging from 5.5" to a little over 6" Additionally, the normal range of penis size tends to be in the 5"-7" range, which seems to be consistent with your experience.

    Quick clarification:

    My erection stands at around a 30 to 45 degree angle, depending. By measuring my dick along the top, putting the end of the ruler where my dick meets my body, I'll get one measurement. But if I then push my erection towards the floor, the measurement lengthens.

    My question is this:

    Should we be measuring is a way that gives us the most length?

    I personally consider average to be about 5.5"x4.75". That, of course, is just an average, and not many people are going to have that exact measurement, so I'd have to say most guys are going to be in the 5"-6" range in length, and 4.5"-5" in girth. To my knowledge, girth seems to vary much less than length does. I think to get a good average, you'd probably need to sample 5,000-10,000 random people, with professionals doing all the measuring. None of the studies I've come across are near adequate in my opinion.

    I wonder this as well, because I consider the 'normal' measurement to be my size. but if I angle my penis downward I add a good inch or so, should I consider this to be my size? seems like cheating.
