Penises are an important part of the human race, as they provide pleasure while performing the duty to create life. Therefore, it is not surprising that men and women seem to be fascinated with erection size.
Average Penis Size
According to the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the average erection size is between five and six inches, making a man with a nine inch or larger erection above average. The largest erection, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, is 13.5 inches, and belongs to Jonah Falcon, an actor and writer from New York.
According to the Kinsey Report, who conducted a survey more than 30 years ago related to penis size, only one in 1,000 men have erections larger than nine inches. However, because the survey allowed men to measure themselves and send in the results, there are many who believe the report is not accurate.
Common Household Objects
Common household objects that are between three and four inches include:
- A business sized envelope is 9 inches by 4 inches
- A 12-ounce beer bottle is 9 inches tall
- A cake mix box is approximately 9-1/2 inches tall
- An uncooked, dry spaghetti noodle is 9-1/2 inches
There is no question that a man with an erect penis that is more than nine inches has an above average penis size. Based on research, those with erections larger than nine inches are rare.
