I would like to help you with your question.
Here is a bit of information for you to read
Q. What is the length of the average man's eect penis?A. 5 - 6.5 inches
Q. And width?A. Circumference of the average man's erect penis averaged 4 - 5 inches.
(Gebhard and Johnson, 1979, p. 120). Based on original Kinsey data, 1948.
How did the Kinsey researchers measure penis size?
Men were asked: "How long is your penis, measuring on the top side from your belly out to the tip?" They were each given a pre-stamped card to take home, and instructed to mark the length on the card when flaccid and when erect. Approximately 2500 men participated.Also, during interviews with over 4,000 men, the interviewer asked the subject to estimate his penis size. The interviewer would hold out a ruler (the numerals were not visible to the subject) and move his finger along it. There was a slight underestimation of penis size, compared with actual measurements.(Gebhard & Johnson 1979, p. 116.)
What is the relationship between the size of a flaccid (soft) penis and an erect (hard) penis?
There is a much wider range of size in men's penises when flaccid, with the average ranging from 1 to 4 inches. In general, smaller flaccid penises lengthen at erection by a greater percentage than do larger flaccid penises, with most men reaching an average size of 5 to 7 inches, so the flaccid size of a penis is not a good predictor of erect size. The vast majority of men measure within the average genital size range and have a penis size that is more than adequate for sexual functioning.
What is a micropenis?
This term is used by researchers to refer to penises less than 2.8 inches (7 centimetres) in length when stretched. This condition is thought to affect only 0.6% of men, or 6 in 1000 men, and to be caused by inadequate testosterone at a late stage of fetal development.
Thank you for your answer and your time. I appreciate the professiona
Lism...and the statistics. There is however one unanswered portion. As far as the inferior feeling attached with this complex making larger manhood on other males arousing....or even causing a desire to let a gf sleep with another man....is this normal?
Ok....i will try your advise. Thank you again. Youve been a great help. Happy holidays Dr.
