What is Average Penis Length and how do you measure up?

how to make your penis bigger

While most men may ask is my penis too small, in truth most men are in the normal range of penis length.  What is Average Penis Size is a question addressed by medical researchers and guys with a ruler dating back to the Ancient Greeks.  Studies have confirmed the average size of an erect penis is 5 inches to 6.25 inches long.  Penis length is only properly measured when the male penis is erect.  A flaccid penis (non-erect state) should not be used to measure penis size.

 

What is the Focus on Average Penis Length anyway?

Men have focused on penis length since the time of the ancient Greeks, so this has been important to men for over three thousand years.  The age of men who seem to be most concerned with the length of their penis is between the ages of 20 to 45, says Bruce R. Gilbert, MD, PhD, director of reproductive and sexual medicine at the Smith Institute for Urology in Lake Success, N.Y.  This dilemma seems to centered around the male ego and self image.  Men who believe they have a larger-than-average penis may exude more self confidence and a belief they are more desirable to women.  This is what separates male lions from the pack who lead the pride and therefore mate with the females, verses those lions forced out.

Men also seem too preoccupied with this notion that women are just concerned about size.  This preoccupation is causing millions of men unnecessary stress that can eventually lead to performance anxiety, which results in premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction.

How to Properly Measure Penis Length?

Due to so many variations in length of a flaccid (non-erect) penis, the way to properly measure the length of your penis is when it is fully erect. When your penis is fully erect, measure it with a ruler from the base of your penis, where it is attached to your body to the tip.   This will tell you how long your penis is.  For most men, they will find they are between 5 inches and 6 inches long.

How to Make Your Penis Bigger?

Now that you probably have discovered your penis is in the average length and girth range of most men, and you are not too small, how can you make your penis bigger?  Just like exercising and lifting weights can add mass and size to arm, leg and chest muscle groups, by doing male enhancement exercises you can increase the length, width and girth of your penis.

Let’s get one thing clear, the penis is not a muscle, but rather consists of three sponge-like chambers called the corpus cavernosum, that fill with blood when a man is sexually aroused, and this is what causes a penis to become erect.  By performing penis enlargement exercises, you can stretch the tissues of corpus cavernosum, which will allow more blood to be stored in the penis and will give you a longer, thicker and harder erection.  Just as lifting weights breaks down muscle fibers and the muscle becomes larger and stronger as it rebuilds, stretching the fibers of the penis will lead to permanent elongation of the corpus cavernosum.  When permanently elongated, this will allow a greater volume of blood to be stored when becoming erect, and this leads to a longer, harder and thicker erection.
