interesting penis article

i found this neat article on penis length that discusses men's concerns over penis length
here's an excerpt:

"Men should know that a normal-sized penis is 1.6 inches or more when flaccid or 2.76 inches when stretched out.

The findings are based on a study of 92 patients who went to the andrology department at Cairo University Hospital in Egypt over a 2-year period complaining of a small-sized penis.
Penile length and girth were assessed with a tape measure in both flaccid and fully stretched states
Study author Dr. Rany Shamloul, at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada, reports that all of the men met the thresholds for normal penis size and did not have erectile dysfunction.

However, on average, they estimated that the "normal" flaccid length should be to be 5.1 inches.

The education and measurement sessions solved the concerns of 79 men. The other 13 subjects still insisted that their member was too short, but with further psychosexual counseling, most were convinced otherwise."

this explains a lot about the repetitive magazine questions

Interesting eh? I participated in a television show that aired a couple weeks back on Discovery Health Chanel " Penis Demensia" I never considered mine to be anything out of the ordinary, infact I thought that my member was about average in size. Come to to find that in there studies actual average was a little over 5 inches... mine is more.

Fasinating that most men are embaressed to speak of their bodies.

Whew! Glad to know that. Of course flacid I do not come close to that figure. I have never worried about my size. It is what it is and unless my partner, or potential partner, has a size limit I have never had someone complain or laugh. I wonder if you ladies worry about "size" of the vagina? Or, the depth of the uterus? Not a question I would use to qualify or disqualify a partner. As BoldDaniel stated, men are embarrassed but I feel it may also be that competition thing in men. Size does carry a conotation of prowess.
