The Importance of Penis Size in Sexual Psychology
Firstly, it’s important to note that penis size is not the only factor that contributes to sexual pleasure or satisfaction for either partner. However, there is no denying that it plays a role in sexual attraction and confidence, and can therefore have an impact on one’s sexual experiences and self-esteem.
Studies have shown that men who are concerned about the size of their penis may experience performance anxiety and have lower levels of sexual satisfaction. On the other hand, women may also be affected by their partner’s penis size, with some reporting greater sexual satisfaction with larger penises.
Additionally, societal norms and media depictions of male sexuality often emphasize the importance of penis size, which can contribute to the pressure some men feel to conform to certain standards. This can lead to a preoccupation with penis size and a desire to compare oneself to others.
Overall, while penis size is not the most important factor in sexual pleasure and satisfaction, it does play a role in sexual attraction and confidence, and can therefore be a topic of interest for many people.
World Penis Size Research Results
According to a study published in the British Journal of Urology International, the average erect penis length is 5.16 inches (13.12 cm), with a standard deviation of 0.65 inches (1.66 cm).
Another study conducted by the University of California, Los Angeles, found that the average erect penis length is 5.1 inches (12.95 cm), with a standard deviation of 0.9 inches (2.28 cm).
A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine also reported similar findings, with an average erect penis length of 5.16 inches (13.12 cm) and a standard deviation of 0.92 inches (2.33 cm).
A study published in 2015 measured the penis size of nearly 15,000 men from 15 countries. The average penis size was 13.12 cm (5.16 inches) when erect. The largest penis size was 16.10 cm (6.33 inches), while the smallest was 10.16 cm (4 inches).
An older study measured the penis size of nearly 15,000 men from 50 countries. In this study, the average penis size was 14.15 cm (5.57 inches) when erect. The largest penis size was 18.11 cm (7.13 inches), while the smallest was 9.65 cm (3.8 inches).
Regionally, African men have larger penis sizes on average. One study measured the penis size of nearly 1,500 men in 6 African countries. The average penis length in this study was recorded as 16.01 cm (6.3 inches) when erect.
European men have a smaller penis size on average. In a UK study, 1,200 men had their penis length measured and the average penis length was 14.2 cm (5.59 inches) when erect.
The above examples only show the results of some studies and results may vary due to different sample sizes, measurement methods and research methodologies. In general, however, penis length averages are approximately 12-16 cm (4.7-6.3 inches).
The Biggest Penis Cases Measured
Here is information about the measurements made around the world and the largest penis size cases on record:
Jonah Falcon: A New York actor and writer, Falcon’s penis was recorded at 34 cm. In 1999, Falcon was listed in the “Guinness World Records” book as the man with the longest penis.
Roberto Esquivel Cabrera: Mexican Cabrera’s penis length was measured at 48 cm. However, most of the length of Cabrera’s penis is considered prepuce (foreskin) and the actual penis size is smaller. Cabrera’s penis size caused health problems and he underwent surgery.
The Black Anaconda: A former porn actor, Anaconda’s penis size was recorded as 34 cm.
S. Domingos: Brazilian S. Domingos’ penis measured 33 cm in length.
These are among the largest recorded cases of penis size. However, it should be noted that many of these cases have caused health problems and required surgical intervention. Furthermore, penis size alone is not a determinant of sexual performance.
