The U.S. ranks 50th in erection length

According to the “World Penis Average Size Studies Database,” the average length of an erect American penis is 5.1 inches, which makes the United States rank fiftieth out of seventy-three countries for whom the average length of erect penises has been determined by measurements, as opposed to self reporting. Ecuador ranks first, with an average erect penis length of 6.9 inches.

    I’m all in favor of puncturing American exceptionalism, but if you are trying to reach people in the political middle, isn’t this chart somewhat counterproductive?

    Well, it’s certainly one way to get them all worried about something “closer to home”!

    Might want to state one obvious limitation – some countrie’s measurements are based on SELF-REPORT. I’m a girl, but would suspect guys being more likely to report a larger size, even when the reports are anonymous.. haha. It might be better to just compare countries with real measurement averages. And then another statistic for Self-reported differences in size.. these results could say more about ones own confidence or self-desirability than actualy size. Even more interesting would be to look at real measurements (objective) versus self-reported measurements per country if that exists..

    I thought about that, too, so for my ranking I decided to pull out (so to speak) only those countries where the measurements are based on actual measurements instead of on self-reported lengths.

    But aren’t WE really the biggest in penis institutions?

    Oh, wait…that’s PENAL….

    Surely America is near the top when measuring dick heads per capita.

    Hmm – looks to me like it has something to do with the anount of centifugal force present in countries nearer the equator – and at higher altitude(the Netherlands being an outlier).

    seems weird that Netherlands is in there with all of the Latin/Other countries. Perhaps i think of it as being more white than it actually is. I do realize there are plenty of African descent people there (blacks) from their colonization in the Carribean/etc, but enough to skew them up to the top tier? Suprised. Expected all of the European/white countries down at the bottom with the US.

    Is there a correlation between penis length and negative emotions? he ha ha or what about penis length and nocturnal safety?

    Great question. From the website itself I took only those countries where the lengths were actually measured (instead of self-reported). Given that there is a vibrant market both for condoms and for sex toys, I’m sure that there is a standard for determining the lengths of erect penises. I guess the real question is this: “What is considered the base of an erect penis?”

    This has to go down as one of the funnier facts available at this site. Love the comments about self reporting of size. It might be a better measure of who is the bigger liars than who has the biggest equipment. 🙂

    Netherlands has the tallest people among the Europeans according to some stats I’ve seen and this is confirmed by my anecdotal evidence. So that might explain it.

    yeah this is bullshit. with a sample size of several million people you’re going to end up with an average that’s almost exactly the same as the world average. it’s not going to vary by this level of magnitude unless there are only a handful of people in the study.

    I would think country’s with more wealth and advertisement industry would score higher, as they have acsess to penis enlargements. Then again I’m a girl so I probobly don’t know what I’m talking about ^_^

    Do you really think that someone in Senegal or Haiti is officially and scientifically measuring penises? And do you really think that for every guy in Ecuador who has a ‘ US – sized Johnson’, there’s another guy who is over 8 inches ? The Californian porn studios should really open shop in Quito, ASAP.

    that’s strange – since people of South America are mainly of Native Indian (Asian), European and African descent – so how come they are so big ? oh yes – the results were self-reported 😉

    I’m not a doctor or anything, but looking at it from an evolutionary stand-point. If a species has a problem with anything, e.g. reproduction, wouldn’t evolution help with that, by maybe making the penis come closer to the eggs by making the penis longer, making it easier for the semen to reach the eggs. Maybe America’s men have stronger muscles in the pelvic area thereby making the squirt stronger, and don’t need the long penis. maybe there’s a problem with Ecuadorian women that makes it hard for semen to reach the eggs. Life is nothing but energy, and energy follows the path of least resistance. maybe that’s making the penis longer. etc. etc. Life does not look at the act of sex as; the longer it is, the more pleasurable it is, Its all about making the baby at a successful rate. if a species has no problem reproducing, why would the penis need to be larger. It could be the fact that we don’t outlaw (make illegal) things that are put in out food that are terrible for us, and maybe messing with our reproductive system. It could be a number of things, but of course everyone looks at this in an egotistical manor. As much as I like the things a huge society have to offer, this is what happens when societies get out of control; they cant even look at things from a common sense perspective.

    Another BIG question… what do u mean by u.s.” Caucasians in the u.s., Ecuadorians in the u.s., African Americans in the u.s.? Isn’t it true that penis size is influenced by genes and culture and all and NOT geography alone since u.s. is a melting pot from all over the world. IDK unless you have a representative # from each culture the u.s., seems very skewed? Just asking?
