The longest penis sizes around the world, according to 2023 data

The longest penis sizes around the world, according to 2023 data

Do you measure up to your national average?

Yesterday we told you how long the average man lasts in bed, and the results may not have been what many blokes were hoping to hear.

The average man will make it about five-and-a-half minutes between the sheets, which is about half as long as they hoped to last, and studies found that a person's porn habits could give them the wrong impression.

When it comes to length in the bedroom, there's another discussion being had which really puts the 'long' in 'schlong'.

In addition to being concerned about the length of their intimacy, some men are also concerned about the length of their implement.

Fortunately for those who want to know if their ding-dong is sufficiently long, there's a whole load of data which claims to know the average penis size for almost every country around the world.

According to the World Population Review, the average man's erect penis was between 5.1 inches (12.9 cm) and 5.5 inches (13.92 cm), so whether you're a grower or a shower you'll probably be somewhere in that area.

The size of your wang also doesn't correlate with other factors such as fertility or the average number of sexual partners, so if you're a world-class studmuffin it's because of your other qualities and not because of what's between your legs.

Be honest mate, it's not that long. Luckily the average is nowhere near as big as you thought.

In a global sense, British bangers were slightly above average at 5.63 inches (14.3 cm) but in Europe the most well-endowed were the Dutch.

It turns out that the nether regions of the Netherlands are on average the biggest in Europe at 6.14 inches (15.6 cm).

Elsewhere in the world, the biggest ding-a-lings were supposedly found in the African country of Sudan, with their average being 7.07 inches (17.95 cm), closely followed by an average length of 7.06 inches (17.93 cm) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

As for the smallest average size, over on the other side of the world it's Thailand with a reported penis average of 3.71 inches (9.43 cm)

However, as they note this data is notoriously prone to being wrong because penis size surveys tend to rely on self-reported data, and trusting a bloke to be completely honest about the length of his member can be a bit of a fool's errand.

Data on penis size is notoriously inaccurate, as many men misreport the dimensions of their member.

On top of that, the survey pointed out that such surveys suffered from 'volunteer bias', where men with more sizeable sausages were more likely to volunteer the information and sign up to participate.

So fellas, if you've been lying about the length of your little chap then this whole study is ruined and we don't really know what the average penis size is after all.

Really though, the most important takeaway is that there's not a lot of variation in the actual average size from country to country, and that whatever you're packing in your pants is going to be enough to do whichever job is required of it.
