The average penis size around the world – How do we measure up?
It is not unusual for men to wonder how they compare to other men in length. Probably all men have asked themselves whether they are above or below the average of the worldwide penis sizes and whether they should aim for a penis enlargement. Boys no longer have to worry and wonder how they fare against their rivals in terms of penis size.
A list has been published comparing erect penis sizes around the world. In Africa there is tough competition for the title for the largest penises in the world. Men from Asia, on the other hand, have the smallest penises on average.
The global average is just under 5.51 inches. That’s pretty much the size of the display of an iPhone 6 Plus. The title of the world’s largest penises goes to the Democratic Republic of Congo, where the average is a proud 7.01 inches. North Korea is the exact opposite. Here, men with an average penis size of 3.8 inches are in last place in the international comparison. The “best-stocked” continent is South America with an average of 6.3 inches.
Worldwide, 3 percent of men over 7.8 inches penis length and about 6 percent need extra large condoms.
The US average varies from study to study. However, scientists and physicians now agree that the American average length is well below 6 inches. Widespread and recognized is a penis average length of 5.079 inches, which reaches to a place in the midfield worldwide. Deviations up or down are relatively normal. With over 7 inches you have a very large penis, with under 5.1 inches a rather smaller one. Whether women’s length of the male penis is important, we investigate in another blog post.
The attempt to create an average of the global penis size includes the examination of numerous earlier infographics and surveys. But if we take a closer look, most of them turn out to be useless. Most of the data used to create “global” size statistics comes from incorrect or unreliable reports. In many cases, the sources used to produce statistics on international penis size were based on self-declarations or estimates given by men about the size of their own penis. As all men know, more is often stated there than is actually available. Some studies have even found that men perceive their own penis as smaller than they actually are. All these studies can therefore only be used as a result with extreme caution.
