What is the ideal penis size?

Men across the world have revealed what they consider to be the ideal penis ‘length’.

A new worldwide survey of 10 countries from the UK to the US asked people what they thought the average size of a penis was and what their ideal length would be.

They were not asked about girth.

The study, carried out by Dr Ed, surveyed 2,121 respondents, 1,148 of which were male while the remaining 973 were female.

For men across the board, the average size penis was believed to be 5.5 inches and the ideal length was 6.5 inches.

‘When considering notions of an ideal length, it becomes clear that expectations don’t always match up with reality,’ the report read.

‘While it’s concerning that even an average penis size is seen as less than ideal, it’s unclear whether a difference of only 2cm would have a meaningful effect on sexual satisfaction for a man or his partner.’

‘One of the aspects of men’s size anxiety that looms the largest is concern over what partners might think and how important they consider size to be,’ it continued.

‘Perceptions of penis size have become so distorted in the popular imagination that the reality is often ignored and exceeded by exaggerated notions of an ideal size.

‘More than that, these beliefs vary substantially between nations and even states – what’s considered ‘ideal’ in one place may not be so in another.’
