male endowment, what is average?


Ok, so this is out of order, I should be telling you what I am doing this weekend: yardwork, picking up some extra contract work, hopefully getting laid.

Now that that is out of the way...

I have been looking through profiles, mostly beacuse I am trying to find some new friends and have some great sex, but also because I like seeing and reading the diversity to the profiles.
I have notice several things. most standard members seem to be the same person with slightly different descriptions and a different picture, but the description has a few sentances that are exactly the same, most people are not really looking for someone more then 2-3 years younger then they are, women explicitly stating that want sex are usually not real or at least not real or serious about meeting, and to get to the subject of this post, most guys are average or long. I have not come across any guy that admits to being short. There are of course alot of other observations that could be made about the profiles but this post is about the male endowment field under physical description.

So what exactly is average? I have heard several different "averages". But that are all consistently around 5.75". So that is what I will assume to be average. This only applies to length, I have not heard much about an average thickness/circumfrence/girth. So it would seem to me that if you are +- .5" of this average, then you are average in length. So anything less then 5.25" is short, and anything over 6.5" is long, and anything over 7.5" is extremely long.
But it does not seem to follow this. Also how people measure can affect the outcome. If say you measure from underneath you can obvisouly "add" a little to the length because at that point the body is curving under. Then there is the hard push, by which I mean you can push the ruler hard then neccessary into the skin, which adds a varying degree of length depending on how hard you push and much fat/padding you have. And in my experience alot has to do with how horny/excited/turned on I am, I have noticed a variance of about .5" using the same measurement method depending on my sexual arousal.

So I ask what is average?

Personally I will admit that using the method of measuring ontop and not pressing at all and full aroused I am at 6.1". So I have set my length to average. However I have talked with several couples and met a few where the guy also claimed to be 6", yet in person I easily had an inch on him.

Often times I am asked by a female friend what the big deal is about an inch when it comes to length, the best example I can give is that an inch to a guy is like 5 lbs to a woman. Then I get the response that although length has its place, girth/width is where it is really at.

But for the life of me I have never heard of or read anything about any studies on average width. Do you give in diamter or circumfrence? Is it an average of the measurements over the length of the penis? Or is simply eying what appears to be the widest/thickest part and measuring that?
They come in all shapes, some the head is thickest, others just after the head, still some get thicker toward the base. But I have not once heard what an average thickness is.

All the women have I been with comented about the thickness, which is what lead me to mark my endowment as thick.

But I do not really have any basis for comparison. Should thickness be consider in conjuction with length? As in if someone is 7" in length but only 2" in diamter(about 6.2" around) consider thick? what if he was 8" in length? and what if he was 5.75"?
And in case you are wondering, I am just under 2" in diameter, which makes me about as thick in circumfrence as I am long.

Does size really matter? Yes it does, it may not matter that much physically in terms of sex, but it does have a mental impact. And I have heard a few complaints about guys being to big. Yes I know someone enjoy larger, and some enjoy it because of the pain. Personally I think it is because not every woman is the same. I know I have personally experienced no two the same, and I am not just talking about personalities.

What do you think is average?(length and thickness)

How should either be measured?

Tape measure rather than metal which is cold and can cut! I have read about 6 inches is normal and about 2 inches in diameter. Girth would be measured by circumference and should be pi times diameter if I recall my math. I think people spend too much time worrying about dick size that could be better employed having sex!

I don't know if external links are allowed here, or else I'd give you one, but if you do a search for "The Definitive Penis Size Survey" you should get all the answers you're looking for. Check out the results page for the averages.

BTW, six inches around is up into the very thick range, at least according to the survey, and your length is about average. I top out at 6.4"/163cm circumference myself, which is quite near the top of the curve, and is actually bigger than my length, which at 6.1"/160cm is pretty close to average.

At least I know how to use it.
