Many scientific researchers have tried to answer the question globally and want clear information regarding what size is the average penis?
Findings which are published are often introduced with background information on widespread anxieties of men about whether or not the penises are big enough, and if satisfaction will be received by sexual partners
Through the use of extenders and enlargers and given the ubiquity of free, easily accessible internet pornography, and the rise in aggressive marketing by companies promising a bigger penis, it is easy to see why the truth about male genital length and girth might have become concealed.
Researcher have consistently found and it may not be a surprise also that men have heightened anxieties about their manhoods.

Penis size too small
The sizes have been printed across a range from 4 inches to 8.5 inches in length, and from 2.5 inches to 7.0 inches in circumference, based on earlier studies which give an average penis size when erect of 6 inches (15.2 cm) long with a girth of 5 inches (12.7 cm).
The 3D-printed shafts were in blue plastic so as not to recommend any specific race that might prejudice the women’s ideas of average size.
The 75 women specifying size preferences from the 33 blue models chose a little differently depending on the type of relationship they were thinking about and in any situation it showed that they desired a size that turned out to be only little bit above the average found across researches:
- For sexual partners for long term, they went for a penis of little shorter circumference and length in comparison with their choices for one-night stands, choosing an average length of 6.3 inches and a girth of 4.8 inches.
- The preference was compared for one-time sex partners being for a length of 6.4 inches and a circumference of 5.0 inches.
More penis measurements
A number of different researches seek to determine an average penis size. A study published in 2001 took measurements of around 3,000 young Italian men aged between 17 and 19 years.
It is founded that the median average length of flaccid penises was around 9 centimetres (3.5 inches), and the flaccid circumference at the middle of the shaft was about 10 centimetres (3.9 inches).
Another research evaluated a different population, of around 300 physically normal Indian men, and compared its results with size findings in other countries.
