When guys meet at a bar, they often start talking about the size of their erections. And after a few colds the lie begins. In these situations, it’s nice to have a few hard facts in your head to shoot down your friends’ lofty claims about your epic members.
So what is the average erect penis length and erect penis girth, and how many men are actually 9 inches long?
The most accurate statistics we have show that the average erect penis length is about 6 inches long, or slightly less. And the average erect girth is known to be 5 inches. The percentage of men with 9-inch erections is below 2% of the population. How low is a matter of much controversy. However, based on these findings, it is highly unlikely that you personally know someone that great, so it is a safe bet to assume that your friends are lying when they start throwing out large numbers.
Eight-inch erections are the next most common number that a man claims to be the size of his virility when he is aroused, and these erections account for about 3% or less of all men in the general population. The next most common erection size is 7 1/2 and 7 inches flat. Now these numbers are more credible and the data reflects it, as the number of men with 7-inch erections is around 10%. However, 7 1/2 inches drops to just under 4%. So we can see how big the decrease is when you increase the size by just a quarter inch or half an inch. After 6 inches, which is about 25% of men, the next most common size is 6 1/2 inches, which consists of 15 percent of the population.
