BOFFINS have published the most important research to affect mankind in decades — a groundbreaking study about the definitive size of the average penis.

The study — carried out by top French medical organisation The National Academy of Surgery — revealed the hard facts to try and curb a worrying increase in penis enlargement surgery.

Docs claim the scientific breakthrough will clear up the age-old query — and make men the world over breathe a sigh of relief — or confirm their utmost fears.

The scientific report says the average male's manhood is 3.5-3.7ins when flaccid and between 5-5.7ins when erect.

The Paris based group also say the circumference should be between 3.3-3.5ins when 'at rest' and between 3.9-4.1ins when aroused.

The Academy said men needed to be aware of 'normal' penis size before they resorted to potentially dangerous operations.

A statement added: "The feeling of having an insufficiently-large penis can be a source of anxiety and psychological suffering for a man.

"There has been an increase in demand for penis-enlargement operations in recent years, due to what some people call 'locker-room syndrome'.

"But these lengthening procedures may have only limited results and could have a risk of certain complications, in particular regarding erections."

The National Academy of Surgery is one of France's oldest medical bodies, created in 1731 by King Louis XV.

It has more than 500 members specialising in different branches of surgery.

This study was done to stop men from having penis enlargement surgery... but these studies never stop me from wanting enlargement surgery and they don't stop me from feeling bad, because my flaccid penis is 2-2.5 inches and my erect penis is 4 or 4.25 inches. I am clearly below this "average" but nearly 20%. So what am I supposed to do? Get the surgery?

this is an average. AVERAGE. so some people are bigger. and some people are smaller. Thats how averages work TL. Dont get the surgery...

cus what if...

.. u get the surgury, have the corpse tissue that they stick on your dick get infected, causing septi semia, but through the miracle of medical technology they were able to save your life by amputating your infected appendage. When you come to, after surgery, your so grateful to still be alive that it takes a moment to register...all this torment...for nothing. They had to cut off your dick. AAAAHHHRRRGGHHGRR! Please GOD!! Let me keep my dick!!! AHH..I..I promise...i'll never complain about it againnn!!!

I don't believe there's an average size when it comes to a guy's Fireman. Having the unfortunate experiance of being in Jail awaiting sentencing I've seen guys hung like a Mouse and hung like a Horse. It's no joke either. Some guys had Firemans no larger than my pinky finger. Then there was one guy that was hung to his knees, yes the head of his Fireman was level with his knees.

Penis size has nothing to do with the size of your hands or feet. Penis size has nothing to do with race either. It's genetics plain and simple.

I wonder if the OP has read the PM I sent him yet:confused:

IMHO, this study is suspect due to the fact that it was carried out in an effort to curb penis enlargement surgery (which the French govt may be paying for), so the smaller the range, the more of an excuse for a bureaucrat to deny the procedure and save money. The erect girth is also about 1" less than other studies. Two standard deviations according to the other "reliable studies" which would indicate 97+% of the guys in those studies were larger than the range given the French study. There are also people on this board that are in that range given by the French study and none have ever commented that women considered them to be average, but instead have been considered to be quite small. Hell, from what I can recall from high school & college gym & sports, most guys were probably those erect dimensions while flaccid.

Also, the use of dermal material from corpses isn't approved for this type of surgery although apparently some doctors still use it. A better alternative would be this (http://www.surgeon4men.com/), which apparently is FDA approved and uses silicone. It probably costs a lot more too.

Half the population is less than average.
You're confusing average with median.

I don't know...I guess I won't ever understand the focus on numbers, measurements. Comparisons...We're all made differently and that's what makes us unique and individual. Sizes don't define us. TL, do you really think surgery will change who you are as a person?

guys are often into stats for a variety of things (sports, vehicles, firearms, etc) and it is a part of our competitive nature. For some on this topic, it could be a way of verifying our suspicions and explaining why women have been so disappointed with us sexually.

explaining why women have been so disappointed with us sexually.

I'm going to be quite honest here. Women are disappointed with a majority, alright almost all men for lack of intimacy. That's right, almost all men are selfish in this area. Men reach an orgasm quicker then women. Most men want is to ejaculate then roll over and fall asleep. Women expect to feel loved intercourse. Women are nice enough to meet men's needs, men need to do the same in return.

It's not all about orgasm, either, from my standpoint. It's about closeness and tenderness and care and respect and love. In honesty, I would forgo the act itself just to be held longer. The sexual aspect, physical sensations are a bonus. It's all about intimacy and connection. My personal feelings, anyhow.

I can understand this, but the stats don't reflect on your worth as a person or your masculinity in one way or the other. Since these thoughts give you pain, maybe it is time to challenge them some.

Same exact thing I typed. Just worded differently.

that's a different issue than what I'm referring to. At least they're probably enjoying it until Mr Average rolls over to go to sleep.
