If you’re a man whose erect penis measures 7 – 8 inches, congratulations are in order! You are significantly above the average erection size in length which, according to a 2013 study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, is 5.56 inches. Hooray!
While we all know that size isn’t everything, another study from the folks at the Journal of Sexual Medicine indicates that, due to its ability to more easily stimulate the cervix and vagina, longer penis size is a factor in increasing vaginal orgasm in women who achieve orgasm in that manner. So you 7 – 8 inchers are ahead of the game in many cases.
As a means of unbiased comparison, an Indiana University study measured the length of its participants, which ranged from 1.6 inches to 10.2 inches in length when erect. In fact, only 15% of men have been found to have an erect penis size of 7 inches or more! That puts those with 7 – 8 inches of length in a very comfortable position among their peers in the locker room.
If you’re in need of a visual for comparison’s sake, your penis is comparable in size to the average cucumber, a popsicle from your freezer measured from the tip to the end of the stick or, coincidentally, the size of the average male hand which is 7.44 inches.
