Men need to stop worrying about size, says new study of average penis length

When it comes to men and penis size, few things make them more self-conscious. Or more irrationally proud. It's a silly thing, but it's a guy thing, and we have all accepted it as gospel. Until now. Science has just answered the question of what "average" penis size really is. And the results will change everything.

It turns out all those men who worried about being too small needn't have worried quite so much. The British study revealed the average is 5.16 inches in length when erect, and 4.59 around. This is after they measured 15,000 "members" around the world. When flaccid, the average is 3.61 in. in length and has a girth of 3.68 inches.

Sounds like it's a lot smaller than we all expected, right?

This should offer men some peace of mind, but also: None of this really matters. The fact is, size just doesn't matter as much as we all think. Most women I know say they have been just as satisfied by men on the smaller side as they have from men on the bigger side. Sometimes too big hurts. It's a fact.

The sad thing is that men, just as much as women, worry about how their body appears and whether or not the opposite sex will approve of it. For women it's about breast size and size in general, but for men, it's about penis and muscles.

Maybe if we all just relaxed a bit, we'd enjoy everything (including sex) a lot more. So maybe that's where this study could have some pretty thrilling implications. Maybe men can finally calm down and stop feeling inadequate. If women are leaving your bed satisfied, then you are more than enough.
