Experiment 1: The Cardboard
An average sort of bloke would be 5' 10" tall. If he as just 10% taller, he would be 6' 5". Or 10% shorter is 5' 3". That's a very small range, in terms of %, but would be perceived as a great range in height.
Is the same true of penises? You do get freaky ones, but the vast majority fall within +-10%. So would a 6.5" long one, look very noticeably on the large size?
Most medical articles try to be reassuring by saying that the average penis is between 5 and 7 inches. Which is exactly the same as saying the average man is between 5 and 7 feet tall. Not very helpful.
There's a research project for somebody.
|Experiment 3: Statistics by
Leaving aside proper medical research I turned to the worlds No.1 source of knowledge.
So I searched for 'I have a <n> inch penis', for numbers between 3 and 13".
The results are tabulated below and give an average of about 8".
If you really want to see Mr (& Mrs) Average, then go to a nudist beach. There will be the occasional cocksure exhibitionist, but generally it will show you just how average a random selection of men really are.
In fact after a while you will probably stop feeling self concious about any part of your body.
