    CardiffDillon: Some figures I picked up, although I don't recall where I got them, is that 96% of men are less than 8", with 3% being between 8" and 9", and 1% being more than 9".

    cheers

    Dillon,

    I would think that your math is correct.

    LittleMike: According to the Kinsey Data set, approximately 8% are 7.5" or larger, although for 8" plus the figure would be 2.5% and for 9" plus, the figure is under 1%.

    Krowax: Make that 8% for 7", and even less for 8", since the kinsey data isn't very reliable in that area.

    hairy8: The Kinset data for erect length is:
    7.00" - 9.5%
    7.25" - 1.8%
    7.50" - 2.9%
    7.75" - 1.0%
    8.00" - 1.0%
    8.25" - 0.3%
    8.50" - 0.3%
    8.75" - 0.1%
    9.00" - 0.1%

    There's no figure for >9.00" or for <3.75" However, if you add up all the percentages for each size you don't get quite 100% - adds up to around 98.5% I believe. So I think it's reasonable to assume that half of (100%-98.5%) covers those >9.00" Works out at approx 0.75%.

    I'd be more likely to believe the Kinsey data than the data generated by a lot of other size studies. First of all Kinsey used 3500 men which is a bigger sample size than most studies. Secondly many other studies are based on internet polls and people usually lie in internet polls :)

    However, the men who participated in the Kinsey study measured their own penes. There was no standard measuring procedure and no witnesses to verify the reading. Subsequent studies have indicate that the average penis size according to Kinsey is half an inch larger than than it actually should be.

    Which also suggests that the Kinsey numbers for the percentage of penises >= 8" is, if anything, overstated. So the Kinsey numbers can be regarded as the outside figures.

    Those 'measure your own' studies have that problem. Kinsey did have the advantage of having them mark on a sheet of paper where it was; most studies just ask. I'd favor the studies that give you a picture of the penis being measured so that you can verify. It might be a bit extreme, but that's the only way to check the data.

    LittleMike: Excellent points about the Kinsey data set - I was going off my memory. It is probably the most reliable and large scale study on the subject, but as has been pointed out, it does seem to allow some exaggerations and subsequent scientific studies have put the average size closer to 5.5" than 6" which means that the 2% accumulative figure for 8" plus is probably slightly higher than it really is.

    hairy8: I find the subject of penis size stats fascinating.

    Yes, most size studies involve self-measurement which is going to be unreliable with some people lying about their size and others making a genuine mistake when measuring. However, the alternative (measurement by a reliable third party such as a healthcare professional) is nowhere near perfect either. As well as organisational problems employing people to measure penises :D there could be problems with "performance anxiety". If someone knows their erection is going to be measured by a doctor, they may get nervous and not get as hard and big as they would normally => poor data.

    Selection of a truly random sample set is going to be almost impossible. You can't force people to take part in a penis size survey so you'd be relying on people volunteering. And the people most likely to volunteer will be the bigger ones who are comfortable with their size. The smaller guys who feel insecure about their size will be less likely to volunteer. So, straightaway, you're introducing sampling bias into the study.

    One other thing - I have read about some studies which measured stretched flaccid length rather than erect length. Apparently, stretched length is supposed to give a good indication of erect length. I tried this myself using the stretched length method my length would be 7.75 inches yet my erect length is 8.5+ inches so that's an error of around 10% in my case.

    I have read about those studies too and tried it with similar results--going by flaccid stretched length shortchanges me by about 1.5" compared to my actual erect length. Maybe I just didn't stretch it hard enough, but it was stretched to the point where it would really hurt to stretch it any more. Anyway, it gives me serious doubts about how accurate this method is. If all the newer studies are using this method, that might explain why they seem to report "averages" that come closer to 5" than 6".

    Ineligible: Many studies have used stretched length - I suppose it's "nicer" than asking subjects to bone up. I have seen an abstract of one paper (but I can't find the reference) that compared stretched length and erect length, and found the the former was as long as the latter only if quite strong force was used (which they measured, but most papers haven't quoted).

    dickboy: The world would never know

    I for one am under 6in but I know a few that are over 8in and I don't know many people in that way. so I think a lot more people are over 8in that we are told.

    8.00" - 1.0%
    8.25" - 0.3%
    8.50" - 0.3%
    8.75" - 0.1%
    9.00" - 0.1%
    [/quote]

    Out of interest - taking a 6 billion population of which roughly half are male (3,000,000,000) the figures work out as:

    7.00" - 285 Million men
    7.25" - 54 Million
    7.50" - 87 Million
    7.75" - 30 Million
    8.00" - 30 Million
    8.25" - 9 Million
    8.50" - 9 Million
    8.75" - 3 Million
    9.00" - 3 Million
    9.25" and above on the 0.75% quoted = 22.5 Million

    Bear in mind these are all rounded up to the nearest decimal place hence 3 million is rather inaccurate for 8.75 to 9"

    However, if we project the data for above 9 on a similar decreasing trend we would get the following equation:

    y = (9.5 times by e to the power of -0.6833x) thanks to putting in what we have into excel, setting the y intercept to 9.5 (9.5% being the percentage who have 7") and plotting a trendline
    y = %, x = length, e = some scientific function on a calculator

    This gives (up to 15" - cos there are few higher than that):

    9.25" - 0.0171 = 513000 men
    9.50" - 0.0144 = 432000
    9.75" - 0.0121 = 363000
    10.00" - 0.0102 = 306000
    10.25" - 0.0086 = 258000
    10.50" - 0.00727 = 218100
    10.75" - 0.00613 = 183900
    11.00" - 0.00517 = 155100
    11.25" - 0.00436 = 130800
    11.50" - 0.00367 = 110100
    11.75" - 0.00310 = 93000
    12.00" - 0.00261 = 78300
    12.25" - 0.00220 = 66000
    12.50" - 0.00185 = 55500
    12.75" - 0.00156 = 46800
    13.00" - 0.00132 = 39600
    13.25" - 0.00111 = 33300
    13.50" - 0.000937 = 28110
    13.75" - 0.000789 = 23670
    14.00" - 0.000665 = 19950
    14.25" - 0.000561 = 16830
    14.50" - 0.000473 = 14190
    14.75" - 0.000399 = 11970
    15.00" - 0.000336 = 10080

    So according to this, there are 23669 other people on this planet with the same length as me

    Will do the calculations for girth another time...if someone posts the data for me...

    tinkerbe11boy: after looking at some statistics on jackinworld.com (an excelent website about masturbation, check it out) the largest penis reported for the kinsley report was 19 inches. considering that there are probably only like 5 people in the world that big, it is highly speculated that the results are a little slanted, since, as said before, they had men measure their own penises...

    I have a copy of The Kinsey Data, which is different from the famous Kinsey Report. Intended for scholars, it summarises the entire data question by question. Unfortunately I don't have it here to hand, but unless my memory is now completely up the tube, the longest report was 10 inches, not 19. I'll have to check that when I can get to it.

    According to The Big Cock Society:

    "The most authoritative data on cock size was recently published in the March 2003 issue of Playgirl. [btw - I have been unable to locate a copy of this issue - if anyone knows of a transcript of the article, please let me know - thanks, Nick]
    Only one in every 100 men has a penis that is nine inches or larger. More elusive is the thick one - six inches around or more make up approximately one out of every 1000 of the schlong-sporting guys."

    Well, far be it from me to contradict such an authoritative source as "The Big Cock Society," but that seems backwards to me. Granted, I am basing my thoughts mainly on unscientific means like the self-reported data on this website. But the stats reported here and elsewhere give me the impression that 6+ girth is significantly mroe common than 9+ length.

    From my own personal perspective on the stats at this site, it seems like there are many guys here who outstrip my girth (which I usually report at just over 6", though it flares to a maximum of 7" at the base) but only a handful that match or exceed my 11" length.

    Donk,

    To be fair the figure mentioned was 9".  You would surely find a good few men who could genuinely equal or exceed that length if you took a reasonably big sample ... but to equal or exceed your 11" is an entirely different proposition  :)

    On no evidence whatsoever, other than a general hunch, I would say that 9"+ length would include just about the same number of people as 6"+ girth.   It is a little self-serving I suppose, as it puts my length / girth stats in rough proportion.
