Between measurements, provided by men, and the results of measurements scientists were awarded a big difference. Statistics show that the average length of penis in erection, is not more than 13.5 centimeters. The average length from 11.7 to 15.2 centimeters have 68% of men in Russia, and in length from 9.7 to 11.4 cm – 13,5%. The same number of men the average length of a member from 15.5 to 17.3 inches, while the 2.5% showed a length of less than 9.4 and more than 17.5 centimeters.

According to the results of independent measurements, study participants have greatly exaggerated its size.

To measure the average penis length, the researchers used a practical method in which the body in a state of rest, manually drawn and measured. The result is almost the same indicators, as in the erect penis because the cock has the same maximum length as the stretched and relaxed the body. However, measurements can be carried out on the penis in erection – this is the real possible size, which is considerably less in this disease, as erectile dysfunction.

How to measure the length of your penis

At home to measure the length of the best penis in erection, tightly put a ruler or folding rule on the body from the pubis. The length is to the tip of the head – it also takes into account the thickness of the fat layer around the penis which allows to get more accurate results. This is due to the thickness length of the penis can be increased, then decrease the weight or the set.

For comparison, the average length with various forms of penis need the measurement to choose the shortest distance between the tip of his head and the pubis.

Also for self-measurement, it should be remembered that the beginning of the measuring scale of the ruler – the zero mark is not millimeters, so most of the measurements you want to add from 3 to 5 millimeters. For example, if the average length is 15 inches, and the beginning of the timeline starts after 5 millimetres, the result will amount to 15.5 inches. The measurement member is curved shape it is desirable not to use a standard flexible centimeter, as it is likely to distort the data.
