Is Your Penis Big Enough? Check Out FHM’s 2015 Sex Survey To Find Out

Am I big enough? What is big enough? It’s been the throbbing question on every man’s mind since our club-carrying ancestors first painted massive Johnsons on cave walls in the dark. Recently, the British Journal of Urology finally cast light on man’s oldest insecurity.

They laboriously measured 15,521 penises – both hard and soft – in a bid to “reassure the large majority of men that the size of their penis is in the normal range.” The answer? 5.16 inches erect, and 3.6 inches flaccid. There, now you know – we’ll leave the maths to you.

Here's what you thought your erect penises were roughly equivalent to:

1.93% Stick of lip balm

10.61% Nokia 3210

64.81% Standard sausage (before cooking)

20.70% Relay race baton

1.95% Sainsbury’s baguettine

So, what's it like to be really, really, really, really well hung?

We spoke to Jonah Falcon, 44, from New York, who just happens to own the world’s largest penis. Which, in case you were wondering, is 9.5 inches (24cm) flaccid and 13.5 inches (34cm) when erect...

“I first realised my penis was above average size when I measured myself at the age of 10. I was 8in hard and didn’t think anything of it to be quite honest. My schoolmates were, of course, amazed the first time they saw it in the changing rooms.

“Are there downsides to having a big penis? Well, sometimes it will dip into the toilet water, which can be problematic in certain cases.

“Sex in general isn’t really a problem, though oral sex can be challenging. I’m thicker than my wrist and some scrape teeth on it. I seldom get fully erect when someone is blowing me because of this. I’ll get bigger if they’re super enthusiastic.

“I have had to reassure men about the size of their penises at times. But I am of the ‘how you use it’ camp, and I know how to use the sheer size to do certain things other guys may not be able to.

“My own opinion has been that psychology plays more of a part with penis size during sex than anything else. The conceptualisation of something more than twice normal stretching them wide is more arousing than the actual penetration; it’s basically mental foreplay during intercourse, enhancing the actual physical stimulation. Women who prefer small penises probably use that same mental stimulation of a discreet member entering them.

“Women tend to get excited over penises that react favourably in their presence. People like to feel like they turn the other person on, and vice versa. They don’t need the ‘small penises are exciting, too!’ spiel. All penises are exciting, regardless of size.”

Did you lose your virginity too old? Are you the only person out there who physically can't stand their job? And can you really wank too much?
