The Big Questions In Life: What Is A Normal Sized Penis?
There's a lot of speculation over what the normal size for a penis is. Some believe that anywhere over seven inches erect is the way it should be, whereas others are content with saying 'it's not about how big it is, it's what you do with it that counts'.
A recent study found that 45 percent of men wanted a bigger throbber, which really didn't need any research, to be honest. Even if you're sexually inactive, everybody wants to be in that position where, on the odd chance someone clocks you at the urinals of a nightclub, you can walk away with a smirk on your face.
According to the NHS, those with 'average' sized penises are more obsessed about having a lager length, rather than those who have smaller penises. I can kind of understand that - it's like Stoke City. They're an average football team, but their fans, players and staff dream of being bigger and breaking into the top six of the premier league table. Smaller clubs, like Burnley, are aware they're small, but are also conscious of the fact that they're never going to be up there with the big boys unless a miracle happens. They accept this, but make up for it by occasionally showing skill, and bringing surprising results.
Dr Nenad Djackovic, a consultant surgeon uro-andrologist at International Andrology London, told The Express that a micropenis is a result of being born intersex. He says that: "If the results come back as majority female, then what you are dealing with is a large clitoris which can then be made into a vagina," which is probably something you should check out, you know, if you've got a micropenis.
According to Medical News Today, results from across different studies determine that the 'average' length for a flaccid yoghurt slinger is 2.8 to 3.9 inches, and for an erect penis it's 4.7 to 6.3 inches. This basically means that if you have worries about not being big enough, you're worrying about nothing.
"Only men with a flaccid length of less than 1.6 inches, or a stretched or erect length of less than three inches should be considered candidates for penile lengthening," researchers publishing in the Journal of Urology said.
Despite that advice from researchers, the NHS doesn't endorse penis enlargement operations, saying on its website: "Numerous physical treatments claim to increase penis size, but there is very little evidence that these work.
"As penis enlargement surgery is for cosmetic purposes, it's unlikely to be available on the NHS."
When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade, lads - you've got your tools, learn to use them.
