What is the average penis size?

What we refer to as the average or normal penis size differs depending on genetics and the nature of the research. Here are several cases in point. According to experts at Weill Cornell Medical College, the average penis size among the vast majority (95%) of white men is as follows:

  • Flaccid penis: 3.4 to 3.7 inches (8.6 to 9.3 cm)
  • Erect penis: 5.1 to 5.7 inches (12.9 to 14.5 cm)
  • Girth of erect penis: 3.5 to 3.9 inches (8.8 to 10.0 cm)

Another authoritative source comes from a collaborative effort between a team from King’s College London and the NHS (National Health Service). The study, entitled “Am I Normal?” gathered information on penis length and girth from 15,521 men in 20 different projects from around the globe. The findings were as follows:

  • Flaccid penis: 3.67 inches
  • Erect penis: 5.16 inches
  • Girth when erect: 4.59 inches

However, according to the results of the 2017 SKYN Condoms Millennial Sex Survey, the average or normal penis size for men between the ages of 18 and 34 is 6.1 inches. Note that this was a self-reporting study, meaning that the 3,037 sexually active men who completed the online form provided the information themselves, so the chances they exaggerated are quite high
