This fixation is even more pronounced in this modern age of the super-sized everything. Bigger seems to automatically mean better. Men are naturally competitive, and penis size seems to be one more thing to lose sleep over.

So here you go. Hope it helps. The good news first. Statistically speaking, you have a normal penis.
Penis size matters mainly because we think it does. The famous sexuality researchers, Masters and Johnson, say that penis size has no physical effect on female sexual satisfaction. Russell Eisenman's research into women's perceptions of sexual satisfaction considered penis size and width.
The average girth is 3. Girth is the circumference of the penis at its widest section. The BJUI research used data from 17 studies, and the study participants totaled more than 15, men.
The most accurate measurement of the size of a human penis can be derived from several readings at different times since there is natural minor variability in size depending upon arousal level, time of day, room temperature, frequency of sexual activity, and reliability of measurement. When compared to other primates, including large examples such as the gorilla, the human penis is thickest, both in absolute terms and relative to the rest of the body. Measurements vary, with studies that rely on self-measurement reporting a significantly higher average than those with a health professional measuring.
Research suggests that many men desire a bigger penis regardless of whether they think that their penis size is average or not. This article will look at the science behind the average penis size, how to measure your penis, and the conditions that can cause a penis to be or seem smaller than usual. The average length of a penis is roughly 3. But how did this become the number?

Writing in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences a journal commonly known by its initials as PNASBrian MautzBob WongRichard Peters and Michael Jennions use a clever experimental manipulation of computer-generated imagery - CGI - to test the effects of variation in penis size relative to height and torso shape shoulder width relative to waist width on the attractiveness of male bodies to women. While they found that torso shape was by far the most important determinant of attractiveness, penis size has about as much influence on attractiveness as height.
