Human penises vary in size on a number of measures, including length and circumference when flaccid and erect. Besides the natural variability of human penises in general, there are factors that lead to minor variations in a particular male, such as the level of arousal , time of day, room temperature, and frequency of sexual activity. Compared to other primates, including large examples such as the gorilla, the human penis is thickest, both in absolute terms and relative to the rest of the body. Measurements vary, with studies that rely on self-measurement reporting a significantly higher average than those with a health professional measuring. As of [update] , a systematic review of 15, men, and the best research to date on the topic, as the subjects were measured by health professionals, rather than self-measured, has concluded that the average length of an erect human penis is

The average penis size has increased dramatically
For many men around the world, one very personal subject has often been a cause for worry: the size of their penis. We surveyed thousands of people, both men and women, to get a better picture of what the world thinks about this question. Read on to find out how much size really matters.
