Study Finds The Average Size Of Penis In The UK

A study has revealed the normal length of both a flaccid and erect penis in the UK.

Condom manufacturers SKYN partnered up with Kings College London to find out just how long and girthy the average penis is.

Whether you're a grower or a shower, you can now measure yourself up and see if you exceed or fall below the average size.

But remember guys, it's not the size that matters, it's what you do you with it that counts.

A group of 15,521 men took part in the research which required blokes to anonymously input the measurements of their penis - both when flaccid and then erect - online.

The results for a flaccid willy came in at 3.61 inches in length and 3.67 inches in circumference.

For erect penises, the average length was 5.17 inches long and 4.59 inches in circumference.

However, the study's results depend on whether or not the men were honest with their measurements. The average lengths and circumferences could easily have been skewed if any of the participants granted themselves a cheeky bit of leeway.

The reason behind your sub-par or mega-long dick? Dr Mike Bohl told the Daily Star how size doesn't just 'vary between family members'

"There's also a difference among group populations: the average penis size in one population may differ from the average penis size in another population.

"Penis size, in general, varies simply because it can.

"As long as a penis is large enough to get the job done—and that job is reproduction—the genetics that made that penis will get passed along."

You should probably make peace with your penis size no matter how large or small, as Dr Bohl has warned against seeking out any procedures which claim to make your dick bigger.

Cosmetic penis enlargement in the form of the traction method sees the penis pulled by a device which can result in a longer penis with prolonged use.

However, Dr Bohl explained the procedure doesn't result in much difference and requires the penis-owner to dedicate a significant portion of their time to it, as well as it being potentially dangerous to their health.

Instead, Dr Bohl recommends 'losing weight and/ or trimming pubic hair' to make your penis seem more pronounced.

"[They] are ways to make more of the penis visible, which may make it seem like it's longer," he said.

If you do wish to pursue an enlargement or surgery then Dr Bohl urges people with penis to discuss options fully with a doctor.

The study, titled 'Am I normal? A systematic review and construction of nomograms for flaccid and erect penis length and circumference in up to 15,521 men,' was first published in the British Journal of Urology on 8 December, 2014.
