While your partner may be telling you that size is not something that matters to them, it is still good to how well endowed you are. Size of the penis happens to be one of the top most reasons for insecurity among men, and it can’t be stressed enough that size definitely not define how much of a man you are.
How to measure your penis
You want to measure the length starting from the top of the penis up to the tip of the glans. The point where your penis connects with the pubic bone is called the top of the penis. The round part that is present at the end of your penis is called the tip of the glans. You would also want to compress any fat present around your pubic bone while taking measurements. Avoid including any additional length that can be obtained from including foreskin. The girth should be measured around the base, near the middle of the shaft.
The average figures
Much to the surprise of most men, the average size of the penis is not as big as they would have imagined. This revelation is sure to make a man feel better about their own selves. Several studies that involved the examination of the penis size of about 15,000 men concluded that the average size of the penis while flaccid was 3.6 inches, from the base to the tip and the circumference that was measured around the mid-shaft or the base turned out to be 3.7 inches.
An erect penis would on an average swell up to the size of 5.2 inches length vise and 4.6 inches, based on circumference.
Wondering where you stand? Here is something that might help you out. Guys who fell in the 95th percentile category, meaning that 5 out of every 100 guys surveyed, had a penis as big as 6.3 inches while erect. While guys who fell in the 5th percentile measured about 4 inches on an average. This means that the average erect length of 90 percent of the men out there can be anything between 4 to 6 inches.
Myths busted about factors affecting penis size
Some things that were thought to be indicators of penis size were also examined to see if they were actually connected. Height, that was thought to be one of the factors affecting size turned out to be slightly related, meaning that taller men tend to have a bigger package, but this was only applicable to a small extent. At the same time, other factors that are assumed to be related turned out to be myths. Things like weight of the guy, length of one’s index finger, and length of the foot size were found to be irrelevant. Even if the size of your penis is less than average, there is no reason for you to be worried as size does not matter to as many as 85 percent of women out there. Women might even prefer smaller size, as bigger is not always better.
What is too small? Well, according to researchers, only men having a flaccid length of less than 1.6 inches or an erect length less than 3 inches may be considered as candidates for the process of penile lengthening.
Women care less about size than you think
One of the most unnecessary insecurities that men tend to have is about whether their ability to satisfy their woman in bed depends on their size. It is for a fact that a man’s penis appears smaller to him than it does to anyone else as it is from their point of view. Having this perspective towards own penis, and seeing other men’s measurements can create false delusions. Wonder what the women think?
According to a survey, around 85 percent of women were found to be satisfied with the measurements of their partner’s penis. The men, on the other hand, seem to believe differently. Around 45 percent of men feel that they have a small penis while researchers reported that small penis size is a rare phenomenon. As it turns out, while men feel insecure about the length of their penis and worry about it, women happen to be more interested in the width. In fact, 45 out of 50 women that were surveyed revealed that the width of the penis was more important in sexual satisfaction than its length.
