The most accurate measurement of the size of a human penis can be derived from several readings at different times since there is natural minor variability in size depending upon arousal level, time of day, room temperature, frequency of sexual activity, and reliability of measurement. When compared to other primates, including large examples such as the gorilla, the human penis is thickest, both in absolute terms and relative to the rest of the body. Measurements vary, with studies that rely on self-measurement reporting a significantly higher average than those with a health professional measuring.
How much do we really know about the penis? As much as we all take pride in this sometimes little package, many women and men alike don't really know all that much about it. And while ignorance can be bliss, knowledge — especially about that oh-so-favored of body parts — is most definitely power.
While there have been numerous prior studies both scholarly and unscientific on penis size, the British Journal of Urology International BJUI published one of the girthiest analyses to date. Pulling data from 17 previous academic papers that included a total of 15, men worldwide, researchers in the UK came up with a meta-analysis of what they believe to be the average penis size and girth of a penis when erect and when flaccid.

It could also affect your ability to orgasm. You can use a ruler or measuring tape. This means you could end up buying a condom smaller than you need. Remember that your girth is the distance around your penis.
But usually men are concerned about whether their penis is large enough. Often, their sense of identity is closely tied to the size of their penis and their ideas about it. As more and more people are getting their sex ed and ideas about human anatomy from porn, I see an increasing number of men who think that their penis is too small.
For one-night stands, size does matter, but it's not penis length that women are concerned about — it's girth, a new study suggests. In the study, 41 women viewed and handled penises made on a 3D printer. The models were blue, and ranged in size from 4 inches long and 2. They were asked to pick which of the 33 models they would prefer for a one-time partner, and which they would prefer for a long-term partner.
