Penis, Dick, Cock, Trousersnake.. Call it what you want guys, we have one, only one, and it’s ours, we need to look after it. The most common concern with every man in the world is that his Penis may not be normal.

It may be too small, too big, cut or uncut, curved, too straight. These worries affect all of us at some point in our lives. We can almost guarantee that you will be worrying for no reason at all, we are all different and that is what makes us who we are. 

Measuring your penis

Most guys opinion on the size of their penis will be formed while they are still going through puberty. But your penis doesn’t stop growing until you are around 21 years old. There is still a lot of anxiety around penis size so it’s good to remember that you probably have the wrong perspective of your penis. Looking down toward your penis it will always look smaller than it actually is. Try standing in front of a full length mirror. This will give a more accurate perception of your penis.

At some stage most lads will get a ruler or a tape measure out to find out how long or how thick (Girth) their penis is. There is very little point doing this when the penis is flaccid as the length of an un erect penis can vary a lot depending on many factors including temperature. To get a more precise measurement its best to measure your penis when you have an erection and it is pretty standard to measure along the top of your penis from the base to the tip

Average Penis Size

According to a study carried out in 2015 of more than 15,000 adult men, the average dimensions of a man’s penis are

  • Length 13.12cm (5.16 inches) when erect
  • Girth (Circumference) 11.66cm (4.59 inches) when erect 

There are many differences in the angle of an erect penis, some guys point straight up and some straight down. Some have a slight bend to the left or the right. There is no “Right” shape. Each penis is unique.
