[NSFW] How large is your "member"?

Asked by cutiepi92 (2219 points ) January 6th, 2013

No BS please. I’m honestly looking for average penis size from a poll of real people. I know it’s listed as 5–6 inches but I’ve seen other women refer to that as small for some reason and others consider at least 7 to be average. So I’m hoping people on here can give some real answers. I know it’s been asked before, but most of the time only 1–3 people gave real answers out of like 30 responses.

About an inch and-a-half.
In diameter.

Well…I am a female, but… in my vast experiences with penises over a lifetime I have seen far more above average in size than below. I would say my cross section includes a sampling of about 25–30 penises with 90% being above average. I have also encountered 2 penises that were extremely below average, one a true case of “micropenis” and several frighteningly huge members. lol
This is based on 38 years of penis samplings. lol

Which one?

Aster's avatar

Wow; what a life, @Coloma ! You go, girl ! you’ve sure gone more than I have.

Coloma's avatar

@Aster Well… the “meat” of my experiences were in the 70’s…sex, drugs and rock-n-roll you know. The remaining half a dozen penises have been in the last decade, but my memory is solid. haha

Aster's avatar

If we knew what “average” meant the question could be answered so much easier. Notice how the men when pinned down to a direct question are mostly keeping quiet. Put them in any locker room and it would be quite different.

Aster's avatar

@Coloma well, I missed all that. I was solidly married all those years and quite domesticated as I am now. I never thought of myself as sheltered until this question.

cutiepi92's avatar

@Aster yeah I kinda figured, but it was worth a try

DominicX's avatar

Well, I’ll answer honestly if one other person does; but I don’t want to be the only one… :P

Coloma's avatar

@Aster Well…it was a sign of the times, but I am pretty sexually conservative these days myself. Everybody was “doin’ it” but…I don’t believe that sexuality should be in the same “recreational” category as eating pizza. Casual sex really is the junk food of sexuality.

@DominicX

Are you implying my penis isn’t huge?

DominicX's avatar

I am a little skeptical, yes :)

cutiepi92's avatar

come on, someone take the jump first lol

ragingloli's avatar

It makes Blue Whales hang their head in shame.

Coloma's avatar

Hey, you’ve never really lived if you haven’t had the experience of cleaning a horses penis sheath. lolol

ragingloli's avatar

With your mouth ;D

ETpro's avatar

Ha! I’ll be 69 in a couple of months. And at that age, without Viagra, there ain’t much to see. It’s a good thing that making a woman happy can be licked without a big schlong. And doubly good that I love to use my head to lick that satisfaction problem.

zenvelo's avatar

Are you taking erect, or flaccid? or tumescent? For a man like me there is a big difference. About 5½ – 6 hard, but about 3½ limp, and after a bike ride or a swim in the ocean, about ¾ inch.

bookish1's avatar

Big enough, thanks to modern medicine!

DominicX's avatar

Alright, I’ll answer. Based on recent and accurate measurements, I am 5 and a half inches erect, although I have gotten just 5 before. It’s not much, but it gets the job done :)

The whole idea that 5–6 is “small” or 7 is “average” is pretty ridiculous if you ask me and is probably just a product of porn-watching…then again, any time someone says the “average” it’s always varied.

livelaughlove21's avatar

I’d put this in General if you want serious answers. People can’t seem to read today.

The average penis size is 5.5 inches, statistically. I’ve seen plenty, but I’ve only been close to three. One was about nine inches and really thick. I found that to be too big and didn’t enjoy giving him oral at all (we never had sex). The other two were about the same – 6.5 to 7ish inches with average girth. That, to me, is perfect.

I don’t know about everyone else, but the huge penis jokes don’t amuse or impress me. The guys that brag about the size of their penises tend to be the ones with the smallest ones in reality.

ETA: Oh, I see this is in General. How have most of these answers not been modded?

josie's avatar

According your stats, bigger than average. But I don’t think I have ever scared anybody with it either. Probably just about right.

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

I honestly don’t measure myself often, and it’s been a long time since I’ve done so. Years, in fact. I have no idea whether erect penis size changes with age. The last time I checked I was 6.5 inches erect. I’ve never measured it flaccid, but it’s very short.

rebbel's avatar

4 inches
from the floor

Coloma's avatar

^^^ Haha…so you really ARE hung like a horse?

rebbel's avatar

@Coloma Not really, I forgot to add that I have really short legs…

LuckyGuy's avatar

This sounds like Garrison Keillor’s Lake Wobegon where everyone is above average.

Coloma's avatar

@rebbel My little pony. lol

Patton's avatar

14.5 cm (about 5.7 inches).

Coloma's avatar

It is true that a small flaccid penis has much more room for expansion than one that hangs low and is closer to fully erect size in it’s flaccid state, minus the engorgement factor.
Personally I find witnessing the expansion to be far more intriguing than the mere fattening of the calf. lol

Coloma's avatar

@Patton Whoa…all I caught, at first glance was 14.5

0-o

cutiepi92's avatar

@Coloma see I’ve only been with one man my entire life (and we plan to get married) so it’s not like I’ve seen many lol. All I know is that he’s definitely a grower and not a shower and it’s enough to please me. But I guess I’ve always been curious since I have no comparison like some others do.

So far it seems like it goes from about 5–7 which I think is good. I’m not sure how many women would notice a ½ inch difference let alone a cm difference. @livelaughlove21 That 9 incher I think would frighten me lol

Coloma's avatar

@cutiepi92 Well. he sounds more than adequate to me, besides, you can’t miss what you’ve never had. lol
Congrats on finding a good “mount” for some pleasure riding on the great trails of life. :-D

wundayatta's avatar

I have a terribly tiny penis. And I am a horrible lover.

But you’ll never get a chance to find out, so you’ll just have to take my word for it. But you should know that I am an unreliable source.

Oh all right. If you insist. But it’ll cost you!

amujinx's avatar

Not a lot of people willing to seriously answer this it seems, but I’m game. I’m just under 6 inches long (we’re talking less than 1/16th of an inch here) and the same to a full 6 inches in girth. A grower not a shower, but I have no idea on flaccid size and am too lazy to check.

cutiepi92's avatar

@wundayatta all I have to offer is a thank you and a smile lol

Coloma's avatar

Yes, maybe move this to social…I’m not complaining, being the queen of verbosity I think to not allow for a little levity is unrealistic, but hey, I’m a rule breaker. lol

CuriousLoner's avatar

I’m about 7½ in. I measured it when I was entering adult hood and again was no longer a virgin, 19 for me. Haven’t bothered since. Also I don’t know if this sounds weird, but depends on how hard I am like for example if its been a while and this woman has me hot as hell, it seems bigger. On the other hand if its just like a erection that happened it seems quite less.

This is somewhat off topic, but some women are more interested in, how do I put this “thickness” or width than length.

And in other news. lol

cookieman's avatar

@DominicX: My answer was completely serious. No one specified “length”.

cutiepi92's avatar

@CuriousLoner Besides, I think too long would be painful anyway…....So I agree that girth is probably more important

CuriousLoner's avatar

@cutiepi92 Yes I agree. I had that happen to me one time. Haven’t that many sexual partners mind you, but when she told me it hurt, don’t put it in all the way. I was rather shocked. She was not a virgin either…..

Never crossed my mind that it could be painful or too big for her. I always thought bigger was a good thing haha.

What I’ve come to learn it is all about person and you. Everyone likes something different, I no longer go around assuming every woman I meet or whatever is going to be like this or that. Sex is no exception I believe.

Patton's avatar

@cookieman Try reading the details. It’s obvious from the context what is being asked. Yours is not a serious answer. Or at least it’s not a helpful one.

Flagged. Has anyone noticed this is in General?

cutiepi92's avatar

@Patton it is in general because I wanted serious answers. Specifically read that I said no BS. But unfortunately the answers did not turn out that way. I thought I made it clear in my description

El_Cadejo's avatar

Im definitely a grower and not a shower, flaccid is something like this lol. Erect I’m generally around 7.5 but if I’m really horny it’s closer to 8.

Coloma's avatar

Yes, too long, depending on the woman,and banging the cervix is not pleasant at all.
Owww!
For longer penises doggy style works best because the uterus tips forward and allows for more depth.

El_Cadejo's avatar

@Coloma nah me and my fiance are a perfect fit :) though i was with a girl before that we could do every position but doggy style because of the whole hitting the cervix thing

poisonedantidote's avatar

17cm to 18cm, it depends on how fat you are at the time. If you are thinner there will be more of it on show.

Coloma's avatar

@uberbatman Yes,finding that perfect fit is a wonderous thing.:-)

ucme's avatar

Mine’s like a baby’s arm holding an apple & as thick as a coke can!
Not really, I’m packing 7½ inches of prime british beef…nice girth too.

LuckyGuy's avatar

With or without the batteries?

Brian1946's avatar

I think mine inflates to about 7½” by about 2”, but I’m not totally sure about that. ;-D

If you had posted some bitchin’ porn in your details, I could give you a more immediate measurement. ;-)

Mama_Cakes's avatar

I’ve been with a few Polish guys and they were most definitely larger than average.

Incoherency_'s avatar

Brian1946 stole my answer! ;-(

burntbonez's avatar

Mine’s four and a half inches. Do you think that’s why I’m not involved with anyone now? Just kidding. I know. It’s really my personality.

cookieman's avatar

Yea, I see that the penis question is in General @Patton.

Coloma's avatar

@burntbonez Big personalities are a lot harder to come by.
Pun NOT intended. lol

cutiepi92's avatar

@cookieman Well I just changed to Social now

majorrich's avatar

back in the days when Mr. Happy worked, we stuffed him in a toilet paper roll and the head poked out. That was about the closest to a formal measurement I can remember. He’s a shadow of his former self now. :(

Coloma's avatar

@majorrich Sounds like a little penis casket. R.I.P. old friend. lol

The_Idler's avatar

1” (25mm) when I’m swimming in the sea
maybe 3½” (87.5mm) after onsen
small
This is of amusement to women, who generally first see it “in action” @ 8”+ (200mm+).
Japan is pretty racist, but there are some stereotypes I can live with and up to =9

Re: girth – 6” circumference (~150mm) i think? i dunno, something like touching my index fingertip to my thumbtip

And I never believe those stats, I’m sure they just report lower numbers to make men feel better. Or maybe a certain type of man volunteers for penis-related studies.

Coloma's avatar

@The_Idler A 6 inch circumference, sounds like a redwood in your pants.

The_Idler's avatar

its tiny most of the time though, which annoyed me in high-school, but ehh I got over it.

On a related note, i was talking to one of my Chinese friends about this (who is a virgin) and she said that one of her Chinese (male) friends told her (based on her external appearance??) that “she only needs 8cm (3¼”)”

She took this as axiomatic until I showed her how small 8cm really was (no offence), which is when the guy’s motivation for that statement suddenly dawned on her hahah

livelaughlove21's avatar

@The_Idler That guy was actually correct. The length of a woman’s vagina is about 3–4”. Anything extra is a bonus (or a waste, depending on how you look at it). And the distance to the g-spot is even shorter than that.

Blackberry's avatar

The last time I measured it was six inches and a few millimeters. Those extra few millimeters really get the job done haha.

Why did I answer this…...

janbb's avatar

Perhaps a silly question. When we talk about the length of a penis do we mean when it is erect or flaccid?

ucme's avatar

It’s the same with bank accounts, they look better on pay-day!

livelaughlove21's avatar

@janbb I’d assume erect. The flaccid size is really of no consequence, and is usually not indicative of the size when erect.

wundayatta's avatar

And from where to where to people measure?

El_Cadejo's avatar

Ruler on top, base to tip.

janbb's avatar

So that’s why they call you “uberbatman!”

wundayatta's avatar

Just to be absolutely clear: the “top” is the side closest to the belly? I wonder how many men actually measure that way.

I would just like to point out, that the side being measured is not the side women usually see. Or indeed, not the side anyone but the owner of the cock is likely to see. When you look at it from the outside perspective, the base of the erect cock is going to be indistinct. I would think a penis might look one to two inches longer than it measures when measured as @uberbatman suggests.

In any case, when estimating it’s size from the outside, I think that people will think a penis is larger than it measures using the prescribed technique. I don’t know what this means, but I do think it is interesting.

In addition, everyone is on the honor system here. You know. She offered her honor; he honored her offer, and all night long he was on her and off her. I think that might have an effect on the validity of the data and the accuracy of the measurements. I can’t say whether I think this would tend to bias the numbers up or down. But maybe someone else has an opinion. ;-)

ucme's avatar

Of course, to be sure of pinpoint accuracy, get the wife to do the measuring as I did…she flicked the bloody ruler off my tip too, just for good measure ;¬}

El_Cadejo's avatar

@wundayatta Actually the real way to measure is like this

cutiepi92's avatar

Thanks everyone!!! :)

sparrowfeed's avatar

7 is not average. Average is 4.5 – 6. And try doing doggy style with a big one.. bad experience.
