In the never-ending search to find out what's really "normal" down there, a new review of penis studies has arrived. (For more on how your guy stacks up against the average man: Is Your Guy Normal When It Comes to Sex?) The research is published in BJU International-and is said to be the first attempt to create a formal systematic review of penile measurements. In their research, scientists collected data from 17 studies involving over 15,000 men who underwent penis size measurements by health professionals, determining the following averages for penis length and circumference (we went ahead and converted to inches for you):

Average length of a flaccid penis: 3.6 inches

Average length of a flaccid stretched penis (we're still pondering the method on this one): 5.2 inches

Average circumference of a flaccid penis: 3.7 inches

Average length of an erect penis: 5.2 inches

Average circumference of an erect penis: 4.6 inches

The point of the handy diagram (officially known as a nomogram)? "We believe these graphs will help doctors reassure the large majority of men that the size of their penis is in the normal range. We will also use the graphs to examine the discrepancy between what a man believes to be their position on the graph and their actual position or what they think they should be," said David Veale, M.D., who led the review.

We're not saying you should print out the chart and leave it on your nightstand for comparison, but hey, it's always good to be informed, right?

The length of the [filtered] cannot be predicted in the flaccid state. A [filtered], which is 13 centimeters or 5 inches long in the erect state is considered normal. A [filtered], which is less than 7.5 centimeters or 3 inches in size in the erect state is considered abnormally small. This condition is known as micropenis.

There is so much misinformation and so many bogus products surrounding [filtered] enlargement that when they discover the solution, no one will believe. So here goes; any male can permanently increase length and girth in the same way a bodybuilder adds mass and becomes larger. As you stress tissue, the body goes into a natural process of creating new cells making you larger. The question is not whether permanent enlargement is possible but instead, how do you safely stress penile tissue to promote cell growth? The answers can be found by looking up Magnum Rings on Facebook or online.
