The penis obviously has different stages of arousal and therefore changes length. The average length of each stage and how you can measure your penis can be found below.

The Erectus Lengthus: The maximum length of the penis achieved through the state of arousal and excitement. The average size measured from the base of the shaft to the tip is 5.8 inches.

The Maximus Girthus: While still in an erect state, wrap a tape measure around the base of the penis. The average is 5 inches around or 1.6 inches in diameter.

The Erectus Angle: While still in an erect state, stand with your back leaning against a wall and estimate your angle. A 180-degree angle points directly up at your chin; a 90-degree angle would point directly in front of you; and a zero degree angle would point directly down out your feet. The average angle is 106.8 degrees.

The Flacidus Lengthus: Measure immediately after undressing, you don't want cold or warm air from the room to distort your measurement, as shrinkage or expansion may occur. The average length is 3.43 inches.

Many women report that too many men are hung up on the size of their penises. The vagina is only about five inches long, and even a small penis can touch every square centimeter within the vagina. The secret to pleasing and impressing a woman sexually has nothing to do with penis size. Instead, concentrate on the movements, and rhythms of your thrusts. Most women will agree that penis size is not enough to please them.

According to the Kinsey Institute, the biggest erect penis on record measures 13 inches. The smallest tops off at 1 and 3/4 inches.

I remember when I was in 7th grade and mine was 2.5 and everyone teased me because they saw me in the shower. I'm in 9th grade now and I'm 14, mine is 6 and still growing. So don't worry you will grow.

It's really hard to get an unbiased answer. Ideally men need to be measured when fully erect, but this is hard to achieve in a clinical environment. Also, we can presume that men who suspect themselves to be smaller than average are unlikely to volunteer to be measured. Meanwhile, men have too many reasons to exagerate if asked to give an answer on paper.

The size of the penis at birth (stretched) ranges from 2.4 to 5.5 cm. Even at the onset on puberty, the average willy is only about 6cm long. The penis continues to grow for a few years after a teenager has stopped getting taller. Flacid adult length is only about 3.5 inches. The relationship between flacid and erect length is unpredictable, as it depends partly on individual blood flow.

Erect adult circumference has been estimated (within a lab) to average about 5 inches. Erect adult length is thought to average somewhere between 4 and 8 inches, but nobody is really sure where the average adult penis length for humans is within that range.

Most men think that they are smaller than they are because of a fore-shortening effect (Mr Happy looks smaller because of the angle that you look down at him from).

Average size is 5.5 inches. Anybody who's saying they've got 8 or more should be willing to prove it, otherwise, it's a cucumber or similar that they've stuck in their pants.

See it this way, your friends don't really have those size penis, and if they do, in the next 10 years, it won't grow much since they have already reached their limit but your will grow by atleast 4 more inches if you eat healthy and exercise, in 10 years you can look at your so called friends penis and say, dude your dick hasn't grown since you were 13"..that will help a lot

We come in all shapes and sizes, I'd say there is no such thing as normal or not. I'm 7 inches when fully erect, my girlfriend always comments on how big she thinks I am, when we love, she says that I feel like I'm too big for her. So its relative to the woman, and how much she may be able to accomodate. Don't take it too serious, enjoy life, have fun and take it easy as much as possible.

When the boys talk about their size, they are talking about the size while erect, not soft. You can be only an inch not erect but be much larger during erection. If you are small even while erect, there isn't much you can do. Not every guy has a large penis and you are not done growing yet.

Anyone 12 or 13 that sez they got a 6.5 and above are most likely lying or their measuring from the bottom. When I measure I go from the top and sometimes from the sides to make me feel good. Also in inches- it goes by 8ths like 1/8ths I'm almost 13 and I got a 5-5.5 inch and I don't know what ppl think about it unless its a girl of course

There's a saying: Sometimes Its a "grower" not a "shower". Besides It really doesnt matter at this point as others have pointed out you are not done growing yet. And Its what you do with it that counts!
