Many men are fixated about the size of their penis, but have no idea whether it is bigger or smaller than average. Their partners are probably equally ignorant!
Now a team from King’s College London and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust has reviewed size measurements of over 15,000 men aged 17 and older to produce some definitive figures.
Using standard procedures, all men had the length and circumference, or girth, of their penis measured while it was flaccid and erect.
The results reveal that the average length of a flaccid penis is 9.16cm and 13.12cm when erect. The average girth is 9.31 cm when flaccid and 11.66 cm when erect. There is a small correlation between height and erect penis length.
Your local community pharmacy will, of course, offer condoms for all sizes and, these days, a variety of tastes. Emergency contraception and other sexual health services can also be accessed by asking your pharmacist.
