You may think you have a shorter than average penis, but it really isn’t as small as you think.
Most men worry about how big they are. But guess what? Most men with concerns about penis size actually have completely normal-sized penises, says Debra Herbenick, Ph.D., M.P.H., a professor and director of the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University Bloomington.
Here, she tells Men’s Health what the average penis size is, how to do away with nagging insecurities, and have the best dates (and sex) of your life — no matter your size.
WHAT’S THE AVERAGE PENIS SIZE?
About 5.6 inches (14cm) of erect length. The range is around 4-something inches to 6.25 inches (10cm to 15.8cm). It’s pretty consistent. But a lot of these email marketing campaigns for pills that are supposed to make you bigger (they don’t) talk about the average penis size being seven inches (17.8cm) long. No study has ever found an average penis size of seven inches long. So, we get emails from men who are in the fives or even six inches and have been led to believe that they’re smaller than average.
