Recent Research Revealed The Average Penis Size Of American Men

The Journal Of Sexual Medicine published data about the average penis size of American men based on a survey conducted recently.

The survey was conducted on 1661 men who have measured their penis along with their partners, or “friend”, and then submitted the data online.

In the course of the survey, researchers including sex researcher Debby Herbenick found many size differences on erect penises.

Penis comes in many shapes and sizes. There are small, medium, big, as well as penises with slight curvature, or extremely curved penises.

Data Gathered

  • Smallest Penis Measurement = 1.6 inches or 4 cm
  • Largest(perhaps longest) Penis Measurement = 10.2 inches or 26 cm
  • Average Penis Girth Measurement = 4.8 inches or 12.2 cm

A new published research findings by BJU International entitled “Am I Normal?” to systematically review and create penis nomograms in both flaccid and erect size measurements.

The findings of the researchers are based on this research may be useful in therapeutic settings and clinical counseling on men who think they have a small penis, and/or academic purposes.

Unlike with the previous research conducted by PNAS researchers, which is conducted in a flaccid state of penises, these measurements were taken while penises are in their erect state.

Additionally, researchers found that race or orientation is not an excellent predictor a man’s penis size.

Another interesting fact the researchers have found, different methods of achieving an erection can result in different measurements such as men who have achieved erections through oral sex tend to have achieved bigger sizes than men who attained erections through fantasizing.

  • Using a ruler, push the zero end of the ruler against the abdomen while pointing the other end towards the penis end, or glans.
  • Take note the measurement on the ruler from the base of the penis to the penis glans.



Measuring The Girth or Thickness

  • Using a tape measure such as one used in sewing, wrap the tape measure around at the middle of the erect penis shaft.
  • Record the measurement that registers at the tape measure.
  • If tape measure is not available, use a string, or shoelace, or ribbon around the penis shaft.
  • Then, measure how long the string wrapped around the penis shaft using a ruler.

Not Happy With Your Penis Size?

If you’re not happy with your penis size right, don’t get discouraged or simply accept there is nothing you can do about it. Get started with penis enlargement.

The concept of increasing penis size is very much possible, and it has been proven by many men who have achieved measurable inches of permanent gains.

There are various ways to achieve an increase in penis size such as through consistently perform manual exercises, using penis enlargement devices like penis pumps and penis extender, or a combination of exercises and devices.

Of course, there are certain safety requirements that one must learn prior to beginning any of the routines using the mentioned methods. It is vital to take safety first as you want to achieve positive results and permanent gains.

When implementing the routines wrongly can lead to penile injury and possibly discouragement leading to failure on achieving the desired results, and eventually concluding penis enlargement does not work, in fact, it was performed or implemented inappropriately.

There are various guides that are openly available online or get a well-organized online penis enlargement course like Penis Advantage. Additionally, although not known in many men, penis enlargement coaching exist online.

Therefore, if you have difficulty getting started, try getting a penis enlargement program co-created by a known PE coach if you are serious about achieving the size you truly want.

What To Expect With Penis Size Research and Studies

In my opinion and based on trends about penis size research, we can expect more on this in the future.

Expect to hear from researchers there is nothing wrong with a small penis and that men should live and be happy with that they have.

Honestly, I don’t have any issues with that conclusive statement by previous and perhaps future researchers about penis size.

However, if you’re like me and others who have achieved great and permanent penis enlargement size gains, those research and studies are simply to program men that there is nothing we can do about in increasing the size of the penis.

Hopefully, there would be a research and/or clinical trials to be conducted about penis enlargement gains, but until then, those who are keen in achieving penile growth naturally through non-invasive means…should rely on results being achieved by other men who have gone beyond what the previous researchers suggested.

Personally, I myself and those men who are hardcore in penis enlargement can prove that non-invasive means either using devices, or manual penis exercises or a better combination of both can result to a bigger penis with permanent size gains when done correctly and consistently.

Of course, as always mentioned in this website, quick gains and results are not possible. There are no shortcuts in penis enlargement. It’s a life-long commitment to achieving and maintaining bigger penis size for sexual performance and penile health maintenance purposes.

Definite Goals Are Important

Penis enlargement is not for everyone, and that’s an obvious fact, but for those who are interested and have a definite goal, your effort will pay off in the end.

And, for those who simply maintain penile health at its optimum level, penis exercises performed lightly are great and effective.

If you’re skeptical, try at least 30 days of doing penis exercises like stretching and jelqing and see what results you can get after 30 days, or if you can make to try up to 90 days, the better.

Or, if you’re like the majority who are lazy in implementing any or both the exercises mentioned, you can try easiest male sexual health exercise called Kegels.

Kegel exercises, when performed consistently can help one with a problem in premature ejaculation, as well as achieve better erections.

Performing Kegels does not require any hand motion or having the penis to be exposed but simply controlling and contracting the muscles involved, Kegels can be done anywhere, anytime.


  1. Is natural penis enlargement really possible? If so, what are the best options for natural penis enlargement methods or products available? I have been investigating topics about natural penis enlargement, and I came throughout great deals of natural penis enlargement products as well as and exercise routines. I was just wondering if any, or combination of these natural penis enlargement techniques do work. I do not want any abnormal tablets. I want the natural penis enlargement options because I desire everything to be natural and safe. Please help me because there are many natural penis enlargement items and tablets out there so help me select.

    • Hey Jerry, yes non-invasive or natural penis enlargement is possible and if you take some time to browse this website you’ll find a lot techniques on how to go about and succeed with it. You don’t have to buy anything when you get started with PE, first I would suggest visiting the resources page so that you will have a good insights on getting started on the right track.

      Then, try the manual exercises, stick with it and get yourself into the right mindset. Penis enlargement is a long-term commitment and it is very important to get into the right mindset prior to spending money on devices like pumps and extenders.

      On the other hand, supplements are not penis enlargement, but they do help in the process but don’t make them as a primary method of increasing penis size because it will not give you an increase or penile growth. Pills or supplements simply boost male virility and erection quality in some cases.

  2. please suggest me some best wesites for the most reliable penis enlargement tablets videos, products, techniques, methods and options for naturally penis enlargement.

  3. The world has changed really! Previously, there had been no research about penises, and even with penis enlargement was being performed secretly. These days, penis enlargement and male enhancement become a big business in the health world and self-improvement arena for men. I guess it’s human nature for men to always want to dominate….

  4. Hopefully, they can establish someone with the biggest and smallest penis, at least for Americans that can be link to this research 🙂 They can either name who has it, or not.

  5. Are self-measured data reliable? How did the researchers verified the data submitted were authentic, and how did they picked the subjects? Anyone can be a subject and anyone can submitted anything with regards to data. Unless these men are familiar with penis enlargement and who are particular with measurements, majority of these subjects might not be measuring their penises correctly.
