Cock size

For centuries, men across the planet have placed great importance on penis size with many cultures equating size with masculinity and symbolising qualities such as virility, fertility, strength, ability and courage. However, a few/ some/ all men [delete which don't apply] worry that their cock is smaller than it should be or that it won't satisfy.

As a result of an recent International study of more than 15,000 penises around the world, we now have a scientific answer to this enduring question. For the average man:

  • Hard/ Erect: 13.12 cm (5 3/16 inches) in length and 11.66 cm (4 5/8 inches) around
  • Soft/ flaccid: 9.16 cm (3 5/8 inches) in length and 9.31 cm (3 11/16 inches) around
  • For those of you who have no idea what inches are explore here. Fractions are displayed as ¼, ½ and ¾ of an inch; but also as eighths: 1/8th, 2/8th, 3/8 etc; and sixteenths: 1/16, 2/16, 3/16 etc. Inches are sometimes denoted as double quote marks after the number so six and a half inches would look like this: 6½" You can find a handy cm/mm to fractions of an inch calculator here. Although the introduction of the metric system makes calculations easier, cock size measured in inches remains prevalent, like the pint. While we love centimetres "Why don't you suck off my 7 inches" sounds that little more appetising.

Given only the first couple of inches (or first few centimetres) of the arsehole is touch-sensitive, a shorter or thicker cock can be just as good at stimulating those nerve endings as anything larger. While big long cocks can have your arse poked skywards in seconds, they can knock into the rectum wall and sphincter muscles causing discomfort and pain. So the moral of this tale is quite simple: don’t ignore smaller cocks and beware of bigger ones in the hands of dickheads who think they know what they’re doing.

Also, you can't judge the true size of a penis while it's soft or not erect. Some men with relatively small penises grow to a larger size when erect, while their larger counterparts don't show as much growth when hard. Thus the term: 'grower or shower.' Peaking sideways-on at his dick at the urinal gives the impression of greater length, unlike when you are looking downwards at your own.

For better and worse, gay men have turned size into an art form. It's a major currency among gay men and threaded though our culture, our scenes, our community and whatnot, and a core part of who we are as men who fuck other men. A pre-requisite box on many (if not all) gay hook-up apps and websites, porn websites don't miss a trick either with dedicated categories: big dick, massive monsters, donkey dicks, over-sized dicks, destroyer dicks. It's difficult to know whether to wince or cry.

There isn't a single person on this planet that hasn't heard general statements relating penis size to race and ethnicity. Though in some cases the generalizations are true, they are merely stereotypes. There are men in all ethnic groups that negate such generalizations. In other words, don't judge a book by its cover! You may be disappointed with the results... or pleasantly surprised.

Dick food for thought

"Guys with dicks are so demanding. You want to slap 'em."
"If it's more than a mouthful then it's a waste."
"I know mine is smaller but you adapt. I mean, so many men."
"Guy's don't want me, they just want my dick. Fun for a while, but then it's depressing."
"You think it's easy staying hard, satisfying all these arses. I need a spa and a splint."
"I just care who it's attached to."
"I care about if they know how to use it or not."
"I wish mine was smaller. I scare people off."
