Am I bigger or smaller than average? This article explains how to measure the penis, why people are so focused on increasing their size whilst also answer the age old question: What is the Average Penis Size???

Step one for the man concerned about his penis length or girth – going on the internet to work out whether his penis is indeed below average. First the good news – men tend to underestimate the length and girth of their own penis whereas overestimate the size of others’, perhaps glimpsed in the locker room. This is because we view our own genitalia from above and others’ from the side.

Sexologists have indicated that approximately 1 in 3 men who come in to discuss an increase of penis size with them have an ‘average or above’ length of penis, but mistakenly believe they need to increase the size of their penis.

In some cases in history, a small penis was seen as desirable. In Ancient Greece, a large penis was considered to be somewhat comical and disgusting. This is of course no longer the case in most cultures, preoccupation with penis size is rife, and this stems from our male belief that a small penis makes a small man.

Even if we are able to overcome this belief ourselves, will our sexual partners?

We cannot change society in such a fell swoop. Penis length will always remain important to men, although arguably penis girth is actually more important for female sexual satisfaction.

To ascertain your true penis size, measuring the penis is advised to be done a number of times and the findings averaged. This is because the penis, when erect, can be quite different lengths at different times of day, under different room conditions and temperatures etc.

Measuring girth is quite straightforward when the penis is erect but measuring length is a bit more difficult. Remember to measure along the bottom of the penis as this will return the full length. The other pitfall is remembering to only measure to the base of the penis that actually protrudes from the body and not artificially increasing your penis size to satisfy your vanity.

The average penis length around the world depends on who you ask. Studies performed over the internet by survey always return a result of a higher average penis size compared to clinically performed studies. Were the online participants measuring their own penises incorrectly, or lying to an anonymous survey?

Perhaps under the cold light of clinical study the average penis gets a little stage-fright, resulting in a lower average. A vast many studies have been performed on penis size, some which show significant differences in penis size by race and age – but were these politically motivated or incorrectly performed? Did they combine different studies that were initially performed under different conditions?

Most studies have shown that the flaccid length of a penis is no indication of the size of the penis upon erection. Most studies have also shown there is little correlation between height and penis size. Around 1 in 167 men suffer from a micro-penis – a penis which is less than 7 centimetres in length.

Our best guess is the average penis length, when erect, is between 5.1-5.9 inches in length, and 4.85 inches in circumference. The vast majority of studies have shown there is not a correlation between race and penis size. If your penis falls under this size then don’t fret – 50% of all men are in the same boat as you.

You can combine the use of penis enhancement pills with a jelqing exercise program to increase the length or girth of your penis, perhaps enough to push it over this average. This will allow those creeping doubts about your penis size to melt away, giving you increased self confidence and prowess in the bedroom.

So I’m Chris Sabian, the creator and owner of the Penis Enlargement Resource website.

Now I’m going to be honest, I’m actually really happy with the size of my penis – i’ve never had any complaints, and it works exactly how it’s meant to.

That said however, I have worked for various companies and businesses within the men’s sexual health niche – it’s from these years of experience actually working on a number of different products that i have an absolute wealth of knowledge on what does and doesn’t work.

Yes natural penis enlargement IS possible but the amount of bullshit out there is phenomenal.

In some cases, even doctors don’t know what is truly possible, with many (especially in the US) simply prescribing treatment options that are the most profitable for their clinics!

The number of times I’ve seen adverts online for this miracle cure for erectile dysfunction, or a product claiming to give you 3 more inches in less than a month really does play in to the unrealistic and misguided view point of so many and that is why i created Penis Enlargement Resource – to stop the scare mongering and provide a completely unbiased view point on every product that passes my desk.

Yes! Every product i review i actually have possession of – i’m not simply writing reviews based on other generic online content, so if your reading a review and can’t see any unique photos or videos, chances are it’s just an affiliate marketer trying to make a quick buck off your insecurities.

So take a step back, read the articles I’ve written and see which products I’d REALLY recommend, so you can take that first step towards making your penis bigger, stronger or harder.

The journey to natural penis enlargement is not a fast process, it is not an easy process… but if you stick with it, i absolutely promise you, it IS possible.
