    "Drawing upon the results of 12 relevant studies, the review, detailed in the British Journal of Urology (BJU) International, finds that the average erect penis is about 5.5 to 6.2 inches long and about 4.7 to 5.1 inches in circumference.

    The findings also deflate a few other myths about male genitalia. The notion that penis size varies according to race, for example, is false."

    Based on the above, I guess I'm below average. Har har! icon_razz.gif

    Judging from all the "increase your size" ads in straight porn mags, I would say straight people invented the studies.

    "“The issue of attractiveness to women is complex, but most data suggest that penile size is much lower down the list of priorities for women than such issues as a man’s personality and external grooming,” the researchers write."

    Women are so dumb.

    Maybe the subject should be gay men penis size vs straight men penis size. (Sorry bisexual guys don't count in this one). Reason? Most of the guys I've ummm...come across (lol) are around the 6"-7" mark. Granted I never measured with a ruler. Anyone want to fund a study? ;)

    My penis got bigger when I realized I was gay. Maybe because women didn't make me hard? icon_lol.gif

    It's been tentatively conducted more than once. Here's some typical data: http://www.sizesurvey.com/result.html

    I think splaying is the surgical term for filletting. Doesn't help much, huh?

    There's a book by Jack Diamond called The Third Chimpanzee that includes studies suggesting that human penis size is actually disproportionate to our body size and is intended as a display for other males, like antlers.

    I agree that somehow the "gay gene" gives guys a bonus inch compared to the guys in these studies. Sure, I've come across the 5.5-6" guys, but 7" seems more common.

    I've also found that gay Jewish men are, in most cases, truly The Chosen People when it comes to the size of their brisket. icon_biggrin.gif

    Urk.

    I do believe a mistake has been made concerning micropenises. Micropenises - penises with a FLACCID length of less than 2.7 INCHES?! They meant erect, don't they?! LOL

    As an average size guy, I DO get that small on really COLD days. ROFL. And yes, I'm average, and I'm not ashamed of it. ;) And no, being Asian, I've yet to see a penis here that can actually be considered small. The smallest was a 4-incher from a friend who is ironically the largest guy in our class. Heh.

    BTW, JustJohn, the penis as a sexual display tool certainly makes sense. Considering that we human males have a curious lack of secondary sexual characteristics for attracting females of the species. The problem comes with the fact that as homosexual males, we aren't concerned with females here. LOL

    Well, for all of us who are underendowed (and those who just want a boost), there is this restaurant:

    BBC: Beijing's penis emporium

    Have your cock and eat it too!

    I wonder if they accounted for the dick size when it was fully erect, or semi-erect/soft? Oh yeah, this reminds me, when I was in Colorado in 2003, I remember reading a study done that gay men have bigger penises than straight men. I don't remember what journal/magazine I saw it in, but it was enough to make me feel better about myself waiting for my annual physical.

    Regarding the size differences between "straight" and "gay" dicks: do the measurements of "straight" dicks account for the possibility of closeted gay men who simply aren't peaking to their potential (and therefore skewing the average against "straight" dicks)?

    I've only fainted once in my whole life, but, Nick, that penis emporium link brought me damned close to a second episode. Holy crap that's disgusting.
