Forget what you saw on PornHub last night, what your mates were saying on their dinner break or what was drawn on the wall in that horrific public toilet you used.
Everyone is a liar when it comes to penis size. And now there is proof.
A scientific guide – put together to help clinicians deal with anxiety disorder ‘Body Dysmorphic Disorder’ (BDD) – was dropped on the world today regarding the average penis size, and it may put some men at ease. The guide comes from a group of British researchers who examined the manhood of over 15,000 men. From this, they were able to determine what constituted as a ‘normal sized’ penis.
They determined that the normal length for a man’s pride and glory when flaccid is 3.6inches (9.16cm) and 5.2inches (13.12cm) when erect.
Dr David Veale from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN) told The Daily Mail:
Men compare themselves in locker rooms and with pornography on the internet and believe they are inferior, but there are lots of men who might be worried – and we think reassuring men they are in the normal range will help.
We will also use the graphs to examine the discrepancy between what a man believes to be their position on the graph and their actual position, or what they think they should be.
The research also found there was a small correlation between the erect length of a penis and a man’s height.
It goes without saying that the ‘larger penis’ has been glorified for years in porn and the media in general, but in reality, only a small population of the men had an abnormally small penis.
Exactly 2.28 percent to be precise, and even if you’re within that population, you are by no means inferior to a man with a larger penis in the bedroom. There’s plenty more to sex than how far you can.. well, you know.
