Men from the UK who are curious as to how they measure up when it comes to penis size might be interested in a recent study published by the British Journal of Urology. In one of the largest penile length measurement studies conducted in Europe (the largest ever for the UK), over 600 men ranging in age from 16 to 90 were analyzed in order to establish an average range for Caucasian male penis size. The findings from this study may allow researchers to compare normal penis length ranges with data collected from other countries and with men of different ethnicity.
UK Penis Study Methods and Results
The UK study
- flaccid pendulous length
- flaccid penopubic length
- stretched flaccid penopubic length
Flaccid Pendulous Length
This type of length measurement is calculated while the penis is in a non-erect state. According to the findings, the average flaccid pendulous length was established to be 8.7 cm (3.43 inches).
Flaccid Penopubic Length
The difference between this type of measurement and the previous one is the location of where the actual measuring begins. For penopubic length, the measurement starts at the pubic arch instead of where the penis protrudes from the body (some of the penis shaft is actually hidden within the body). The average penopubic length was calculated as 10.2 cm (4.02 inches).
Stretched Flaccid Penopubic Length
This is performed exactly like the preceding technique except the penis is physically stretched before the measurement is taken. Average stretched flaccid length was recorded as 14.3 cm (5.63 inches).
Penis Size in the UK and Worldwide
While this study lacks critical information regarding erect penis size – a measurement that men and woman are typically more interested in – it still represents a valuable collection of data not easily obtained given the sensitive nature of the research itself. The majority of men have probably at some point in time measured their own penis but it's usually not something readily shared with others.
In regards to the actual results of the study, men should keep in mind that the measurements are based on averages. Obviously some British men have a longer penis while others are shorter.
There is also no scientific evidence to support that men from Britain have either smaller or larger penises than men from other countries. In all likelihood, penis size is as unique to each individual as fingerprints. Only time and additional research will ever uncover if a trend in penis size exists within different localities or ethnicities.
In terms of mens desire to obtain a larger penis, that itself does seem to span across the globe and Britain is certainly no exception. In fact, one of the most popular and successful penis enlargement companies in the world is actually headquartered in the UK (SizeGenetics). They currently ship to over 150+ countries worldwide.
Regardless of where you're from, Britain, Canada, the U.S. or elsewhere, one thing is for certain – men from around the world will always be fascinated with the size of their penis. And one other thing… nobody wants to be considered "average."
