On Controversial Penis Size Map, Americans Don’t Measure Up

March 23, 2011 by Brett Wilkins in Sex, World with 34 Comments

There’s a controversial new map of the world making the rounds online this week. It doesn’t predict the likelihood of earthquakes or show which countries the United States is currently waging war in. No, this map shows average penis size by country, as reported by various national medical, governmental, academic and sexology institutions.

Priapus was Greek, not Congolese!

The results? Men in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, Ghana, Colombia and Venezuela are standing tall and proud– literally, perhaps; they boast the largest average penis lengths. Men in the Congo, on average, measured in at a whopping 7.1 inches (17.93 cm), according to researchers at L’Universite Kongo.

At the other end of the spectrum, men in Burma, India, Thailand, Cambodia and South Korea measured down at the bottom of the chart, with South Korean penises averaging just 3.8 inches (9.66 cm).

And how about us Americans? Sad to say, we came in on the shorter end of the dick… I mean stick, averaging just 5.1 inches (12.9 cm) per penis. That’s 94th out of 115 countries surveyed. Pretty pathetic.

The map is controversial for a number of reasons. It only measures penis length, not the much-ballyhooed girth factor, it fails to take into account countries with high number of immigrants from other nations that could skew the average one way or another, and it seems to rely at least partially upon self-reporting in some countries. And we all know how honest men are about these things! You ladies out there may want to think twice before booking that Congolese jungle adventure…

Here’s the interactive map, which includes the full list; below is a partial list of  countries, with their average penis sizes, as reported by and the various national institutions that contributed to this study.

    Average penis size flaccid or erect? it doesn’t state, making it a pretty pointless exercise.

  4. DavidMarch 24, 2011 at 6:41 pmReply

    The map is based on average erect state. I have always thought americans are small, compared to europeans lol.

    My country is in 25th place.

    Here is the full map:

    This map ( proves that we colombians are the biggest bluffers in the world!

    people often incorrectly cite a Korean study that measured flaccid stretched penises, not erect ones.

    “2.2 Measurements

    The flaccid penile length was measured in a warm quiet room. The penile length was defined as the distance from the pubo-penile skin junction atthe dorsum to the tip of the glans. The suprapubic fat thickness was defined as the thickness of the fad-pad when the examiner firmly compressed up to the pubis symphysis at the pubo-penile junction. The stretched length was measured after maximum penile stretching at the first attempt. A rigid ruler was used, except for the penile circumference, to avoid measurement error due to penile curvature. The mid-shaft circumference was measured with a tape.”

    I’m not saying Koreans have monster dongs, but the 9.6 cm figure thrown around is not accurate due to the measurement method. In reality, I suspect they have the same size as the Japan/China numbers from the region.

    Anyone ever stop to read that this was done by the University of Congo? I guarantee if we (US) did this study, we’d be the largest. How did they even test people in these other countries anyways?

      The Congo’s figures were measured by the University of Congo, just as the figures for many of the other countries were reported by institutes in those countries.

    It’s not the size but how you use it. lol

    This serve is bull shit. America’s average is 6 inches and 5 inches around. This is a skewed test results some not even from today. America’s was from a lame study done in 1998 that wasn’t even conducted on enough people. Plus, our country has a lot of Asians and other people from small dick countries so our results are skewed because of that as well.

    This list is CRAP! I am a Bolivian women and my country fellow men DONT have a large penis size. They are below average or average at best! I almost died laughing and thinking how the persons in charge of this information in Bolivia may have “misled” the truth. Not surprise to me.

    I have some Bolivian couples and some foreign ones and I can promise you: Bolivian males DONT have that penis size.m
    Bolivian males average penis size= 6.5 inches? LOL, LOL and LOL!!!

  30. Peter KirylukMarch 13, 2015 at 1:33 amReply

    Poland has to be wrong, im Polish and im Exactly 8 Inches x 6.5 Inches around. REAL INCHES from Bone to tip. My wife can testify and i can prove it with a photo, i just dont believe that Poland is that small, especially because the guys there are all really tall, makes me wonder where the hell they got those numbers and how.
