This blog, just as the web page www.mesuret.org does and in which it is inspired, tries to give a different approach to the penis size issue. As can be seen in the AVERAGES section it isn’t easy to find a good value for the mean size, it is rather better to talk about intervals. Just the same way we buy clothes using sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL) and every size fits different people who aren’t the very same size or in the same weight, the idea is that the same may apply to penises.
This sizes described here are just a tool used to illustrate how common this groups (that we could also consider XS, S, M, L, XL) are, and to give us flexibility when classifying them, because a penis can be considered big for being thick without being long or the other way round
Let’s then define the SIZES, taking always into account that these are guideline values:
|SIZE 1||SIZE 2||SIZE 3||SIZE 4||SIZE 5|
|FLACCID||… to 5,5||5.5 to 8||8 to 10,5||10,5 to 13||13 to …|
|ERECT||… to 10||10 to 13||13 to 16||16 to 19||19 to …|
The figures shown have been taken from the averages estimating a standard deviation and assuming that penis size (as many other biological parameters) is more or less normally distributed.
Below you can see an approximate representation done with a tool provided by The Visualiser, a web page to discuss about penis size.
This sizes show how very big and very small penises exist but are very rare, most men are within a normal range, the same way that there is very tall people out there but you barely see them. We don’t see penises that often in western societies, and almost never on erect state, the only ones come from porn or models selected to do so. That, often misrepresents real size the same way that someone who only knew people from watching NBA would think everyone is 2m (6’6”) tall.
Modesty of our society makes this even more important, people with small penises is more likely not to shower on public, not to urinate in public, etc the same way hung guys are more likely to do the opposite. Even when looking at amateur porno, who is more prone to upload his amateur video? The hung guy or the one with a small one?
