What is the Average Penis Size: Facts, Figures, and Factors

If you are like the majority of men, at some point in your life, chances are you’ve felt insecure about the size of your penis. In fact, up to 2/3 of men have felt this way and it is an ongoing concern for almost half of men(1). These statistics show that a significant percentage of men who are of average length, still feel inadequate. But what is average?

Penis Girth and Length

Average penis size is probably smaller than most people think.  For a flaccid penis, the average length is about 3.6 inches and girth is 3.7 inches.  With an erection however, about 5.2 inches long and 4.6 inches in girth is average (2).  Why are so many men who are average or even bigger than average, insecure about their penis size?  There are many reasons so many men are insecure, often starting in puberty.  Firstly, participation in team or school sports can involve communal showers.  Additionally, public bathrooms often have open urinals, changing in gym locker rooms:  These activities inevitably force comparisons and for many, significant anxiety.  Furthermore, with the advent of the internet, social media, and the widespread availability of adult material (which often features penises significantly longer than average) many men who would otherwise have no concerns about their size find themselves in self-doubt.

Penis Girth Enlargement – A Safe Way to Increase Your Girth

Despite concerns, studies demonstrate that 85% of women are satisfied with their partner’s size (3).  However, that same study shows that only 55% of men are satisfied with their penis size.  Accordingly, there is quite a disconnect with perception between the sexes.  That probably doesn’t surprise anyone!  One thing women do care about is penile girth (4).  Studies consistently demonstrate that the majority – some 90% of women – consider penile girth or width, the most important attribute regarding penis size.  Fortunately, with the Upsize Procedure, penis girth enlargement can quickly and effectively be addressed.  Overall, circumferential gains of one quarter to one half inch or more per treatment are possible.  Generally, penis girth enlargement treatments can be done two to four weeks apart until your desired size is achieved.  Contact us to schedule a free consultation at one of our offices nationwide.
