Before you begin making assumptions about the size of your penis, you need to be sure that you’re actually measuring it correctly to begin with.
The majority of men underestimate the size of their penis when their penis is, in fact, quite normal in size. The average erect penis is around 13cms yet according to a study by the University of Pittsburgh, 26% of men felt that their penises were below average.
Remember that you mostly look at your penis from above, which is not how your partner sees it. Over and above looking at it from the correct angle, it’s important to measure it correctly too.
A study by the University of Saskatchewan, Canada showed that 86% of men were far less worried about penis size after they were more educated on the topic so it helps to know exactly what’s normal and what isn’t.
If after this exercise you are still unhappy with the size of your penis, there is a solution. Let’s start by saying that those miracle creams, pills and lotions will do nothing but waste your money and your time. The safest and most effective way to increase the size of your penis is through the use of dermal fillers.
The correct way to measure your penis
If you’re ready to get a little more educated on penis size, grab a tape measure and a ruler and keep reading.
Here are 4 ways to measure your penis that will help you determine where you stand on the penis- size scale
- Your flaccid length
Start by measuring your penis while it’s flaccid. Since the temperature of the room can make your penis shrink or grow, it’s best to perform this measurement as soon as you undress to get the most accurate results.
Position a rule at the base of your penis where your shaft meets your stomach. Now, bend your ruler along your shaft and jot down your length. The average length of a flaccid penis is around 9cms.
- Your erect length
Once you’re hard, use your ruler to measure your erect penis from the base to the tip. Measure the side that’s furthest from your testicles to get the most accurate measurement. As mentioned, the average erect penis is usually around 13cms.
- Your erect girth
Now you can check the thickness of your penis. While you’re still erect, take a tape measure and wrap it around the middle of your shaft. The girth of the average erect penis is also around 13cms.
- The angle of your erection
Start by standing with your back against a wall where you can get a good side view of your penis in a mirror. You will need to estimate the angle of your erection but basically, if it points out directly in front of you that would be a 90-degree angle. The average erect penis has an angle of 105.7 degrees, which is slightly more raised than completely horizontal.
