While the phrases like “It’s not the size of the boat that matters, it’s the motion of the ocean” persevere and continue to exist, everyone knows that penis size does indeed matter. If you’re skeptical on this matter, just have short thought experiment of choosing between having a small or a big penis. Or the same for your preferred partner, if you’re a woman.
Bigger may not, in fact, mean better, but it definitely means easier. One less thing to worry about. But since your penis doesn’t exist in a vacuum, the best thing guys can do is to truly measure themselves to others. Since suggesting this would make for an awkward game night, we have some information about the average penis size in the U.S. and other regions of the world.
Average Penis Size Studies
Despite being such an important topic, there hasn’t been a definitive study to end the debate for all time. But we have some information that will help you build a better picture on how do you actually stack up in the line at the urinals.
A British Journal of Urology conducted a global research based on the penis size of more than 15,000 men and conducted that the average erect penis size is 5.16 inches, with an average erect girth being 4.69 inches. Basically, what it means that out of 100 guys, only five have a penis larger than 6.3 inches, and only five would have a penis smaller than 3.94 inches. As a part of this study urologist also found out that there is no correlation between the flaccid and erect sizes. Meaning that you truly can be a grower or a shower.
The most famous and accepted massive undertaking regarding the size of penises globally is done in the sense that it is really wide and covers almost every country on the planet but it isn’t completely scientifically backed up. As for some countries, the data is “collected” by medical professionals, while for others, men have reported the numbers themselves.
What’s interesting, and, of course, expected, is that the penis size rises based on whether the measuring was done by the researchers or if the numbers were self-reported in correlation with the more precise, per nation studies. We always see our team as being cheated by the refs, and we always see our penis as being at least half an inch taller. Although, this too is not definitive.
Men of the United States have self-reported to have an average erect penis length of 5.6 inches. Measured Canadians are pretty close with a 5.5 inches erect penis length. With a girth of 4.85 inches, which is larger than a 4.81 circumference the Americans have reported.
Mexico has the same average length as the United States, while nearby Cuba has an average length of 6.2 inches. Ecuador, Colombia, and Venezuela have the highest averages in South America – 7, 6.6, and 6.7. All measured as part of studies, with the data gathered by the creator of the famous penis map, the same one which did the average breast cup size map.
Measured average penis size of men in the United Kingdom is 5.6, 5.7 in France, same in Germany, and 5.3 in Spain. Italians have an average of 4.9 based on measured data, although they rate much higher in another self-reported study. The Netherlands has the highest average out of all European countries with a medically proven method – 6.1. While Greeks have the smallest measured average at 4.8.
Australia has a 6.2 average that is self-reported, far more than their closest neighbors in Indonesia who have an average length of 4.6. Men in Thailand and Nepal have the smallest (measured) average in the world at 3.7.
Although the information for Africa is rather incomplete, there is found the highest average at 7.1 in DR Kong, although it is self-reported. Zimbabwe had an official study which concluded that man in this African country has an average penis size of 6.2.

Remember, shaving the grass makes the tree appear taller. Also, however you stack up doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to improve your endurance and penis health, which can be damaged by constantly watching pornography.
Please don’t tell us your penis size in the comments below, we won’t believe you either way.
