- Experts have created graphs showing the size distributions of a penis The average flaccid penis is 3.6 inches (9.16 cm), the research shows This extends to 5.2 inches (13.24 cm) when stretched but still flaccid Researchers found a small correlation between height and penis length Graphs could help doctors treating Body Dysmorphic Disorder, say experts
It’s an age-old worry for the men the world over.
Now, however, scientists have revealed what’s considered ‘normal’ for penis size and length.
The average length of an erect penis is 5.2 inches (13.12 cm), they found.
Meanwhile, the average length of a flaccid penis is 3.6 inches (9.16 cm) and 5.2 inches (13.24 cm) when flaccid but stretched.
And when it comes to girth, the average erect circumference was 4.6 inches (11.66 cm)
and 3.7 inches (9.31 cm) when flaccid.
The British research also found there was a small correlation between the erect length of a penis and a man’s height.

The researchers say the graphs they have plotted, which show the size distributions of a penis, will help clinicians dealing with Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), a serious anxiety disorder relating to body image.
The study could help to counsel men worried about their size, or with investigations into how condom failure relates to penis size and girth.
Some men are concerned about their penis size, and those who are preoccupied and severely distressed may even be diagnosed with BDD. SOURCE
