What Is The Average Penis Size?

How long is the average penis?

This is one of the most common questions I get from men.

There is a perpetuated myth that the bigger the penis the better. Or, that you need a large dick to satisfy a partner. This is definitely not true!

The average size of a flaccid (limp) male penis is between 3 and 3.5 inches. The average length of an erect penis is 6 inches.

In fact, 90% of men have an erect penis between 5 inches and 7 inches in length.

That means that 5% of men have an erect penis a little smaller than 5 inches and an equal number of adult men have an erect penis longer than 7 inches.

Most people don’t know that the vaginal canal varies in length as well. The average length of an unaroused vaginal canal is 3 to 3.5 inches.

When a woman is aroused the average length is between 5 and 7 inches (the same as the penis!).

So, if we are talking about penis-vagina sex, having a large penis (longer than 7 inches) really doesn’t matter.

Caitlyn Becker discusses a survey of 1,661 men that found the average American man's penis size at 5.6 inches (14.2 centimeters) long when erect. (via HuffPostLive.com)
