Great (or awful) news dudes! Science has finally determined the average male penis size and it is … 5.57 inches. Thanks Science!
How, you wonder, did Science arrive at this number? Well, they asked all these dudes to give their measurements for condom fitting purposes, resulting in what Science has determined is way more accurate results than sending in dick pics or getting your erect wang measured by a creepy lab researcher in a sad and lonely observation room or something.
Speaking for Science, Dr. Debby Herbenick said:
Unlike most previous studies of self-reported penis size, [subjects] had good reason to report accurate data to us because we were using their size data to match them to a condom that was sized to fit their erect penis. If they reported a bigger-than-reality size to us, they would get a baggier condom. If they reported a smaller-than-reality size to us, the condom would be too tight.
Custom condoms? This is some fancy ass shit.
Our penis is of course way, way above average, and if you want to see how folks stack up around the world, we got a helpful little dick guide for you right here.
Turns out that Irish curse is indeed quite accurate.
