It's the age old question for men around the world: How big is the average penis? Well now, thanks to several new studies, we can lay some of your fears to rest (unless you really do have a tiny one in which case we're sorry). We can also reveal how countries rank in terms of average penis. Sorry to North Korea, for whom the list makes awkward reading.
Firstly, let's discuss an average penis size study done by British Researchers and published in the BJU International Journal of Urology. They found that the average male penis size was 5.16 inches (13.12 cm) and the average girth was 4.6 inches (11.66 cm). The study was carried out with the hope of reassuring the majority of men about the size of their penis and, in doing so, reduce anxiety that can be a leading cause of depression. Here's the graph...
Interestingly, they also found no evidence that penis size was linked to race. In a study that took in 15,000 samples, they also found no correlation between foot size and penis size.
The team acknowledged that their mainly European and Middle Eastern sample of penises may not be representative of the entire world. They also admit that it may be the case that only men with larger penis sizes came forward to be measured.
