Previous studies on penis size

based on self-reports found that the median length for an upright penis ranged from 6.0 between 6.3 inches (Bogaert and Hershberger 1999; Gebhard & Johnson, 1979; Harding & Golombok, 2002; Jamison & Gebhard, 1988; Richters et al. 1995; Smith et al. 1998 Templer 2002). The mean of 6.4 inches as reported in the current research (sexually experienced and inexperienced males together) is in line with the results of these studies. Homosexual men self- report even larger erect penis lengths (Bogaert & Hershberger, 1999; Coxon, 1996; Grov, Wells, & Parsons, 2013).

In four studies, in which the measurements of penises that were fully erect were conducted by sex research researchers and sex researchers, the average length measured 5.36 inches (n1/4541 da Ros et al. 1994; Schneider et al. 2001; S engezer et al. 2002; Wessells et al. 1996). The average self-reported penis length by sexually mature men in the current research (6.62 inches) was 1.26 inches larger than the average.

A substantial proportion of males who have had sexual experiences could be considered excessive over-reporters (with 30.77 percent reporting penis lengths as high as 7th inches, and 10 percent reporting their erect length as eight inches or greater). In previous studies, it has been found that a majority of men would prefer they had a bigger penis (Johnston and co. 2014; Lever et al. 2006; Tiggemann et al. (2008)) and the current findings suggest that self-reported the size of their penis are affected by the social status of the person they report. The extent of the relationship with social desire would probably be even higher in the event that it was feasible to calculate the actual errors scores (self-reported penis length divided by the actual length of the penis) similar to what is used in studies on nutrition (see Archer et al. (2015)).

The gap between inexperienced and experienced men regarding self-reported penis size has never been previously reported but it suggests that self-reporting is more common in experienced men, thereby leading to a stronger relationship in this group. It is possible that the differences between these two groups is due to a higher sense of masculinity, sexual competence and proficiency of men who have been through the process (Tiggemann and others. (2008) Wylie & Eardley 2007).

Concerning limits, the research utilized the convenience of male college students and it’s not certain if similar results could be obtained in different categories. Men were separated from female students in the study, however there were many men who equated the size of their penis with masculinity as well as sexual competency and strength (Tiggemann and co. (2008) Wylie and Eardley, 2007) The mass-testing could have influenced certain men’s ability to manage their impressions and caused to them to embellish their answers in a way that was not normal.
