Your Penis Size Comparison - How do You Compare to Other Men?

We first need to know the key measurements for penis size.

This is important because we need a standard measurement for everyone to compare to.

Otherwise, everyone's measurements would be meaningless.

This is no different from standing height or body weight that is taken at the doctor's office - all measurements are well defined and exacting.

So we need the same, high-quality, well-defined measurements for penis size comparison.

Here are the penis measurements that are completely standardized in the penis enlargement community:

  1. Bone-Pressed Flaccid Length (BPFL)

  2. Bone-Pressed Erect Length (BPEL)

  3. Flaccid Girth Measurement

  4. Erect Girth Measurement

These are measurements that over 1 million men use to measure their size and compare other measurements to.

You can learn how to do these four penis measurements here.

You absolutely need to know how to do these measurements so that you can see how you fit into the penis size copmarison.

Ok then, how do I measure my penis?

How to do the Bone-Pressed Flaccid Length (BPFL) Measurement

  1. First, get an ordinary ruler.

  2. Use your thumb and index finger to grip your penis glans (mushroom tip) - and pull your penis straight out, away from your body.

  3. Press the zero-end of the ruler against your pelvis, parallel to your penis and right up against it.

  4. Take the measurement where the tip lines up with the non-zero end of the ruler.

How to do the Bone-Pressed Erect Length (BPEL) Measurement

Do the same steps as the BPFL measurement, but you won't need to stretch our your penis with one hand because it will be fully stretched due to the erection you have.

Just make sure that your erection is as hard as possible to get the most accurate measurement.

How to do the Flaccid Girth Measurement

Girth is a measurment of how thick your penis is by measuring the circumference around the penis shaft.

For this you need either a straight ruler + string or just a tape measure.

Here are the steps do do this "thickness" measurment.

  1. Make sure your penis is complete flaccid - no semi-erections, whatsoever. Do not cheat yourself!

  2. Use the string and wrap it around the thickest point of your flaccid point.

  3. Make a mark on the string where it starts to overlap with itself.

  4. Measure the segment that you marked off with the string with the straight ruler - that's your measurement!

Or, you can do the above steps with the tape measure, no need to press a string against the straight ruler - instead, you just get your measurement instantly with the tape measure!

How to do the Erect Girth Measurement

This measurement is exactly the same as above, but you just need to maintain a maximum erection while doing the measurement.

This measurement should be easier since your penis is rigid due to the erection, unlike the when it's flaccid.

Hope you wrote these four measurments down.

Now let's compare each of these to other men and see how you stack up.

How do I compare to the rest of men on earth?

According to studies done by, the average penis size is as follows:

  • The erect penis is 5.75" (14.61cm) long.

  • The erect penis is 4.67" (11.87cm") in girth.

  • The flaccid penis 3.38" (8.58cm) long when not erect.

average penis size measurements

Compare your measurements using SizeMeUp's calculator here.

Are you above or below these numbers?

Let's say that you had these exact measurements - that means that 50% of men are larger than you (for that measurement) and the other 50% are smaller than you.

In other words, you would be right smack in the middle of all men on earth.

For some that's reassuring, for others, they want more.

For me personally, I used to be slightly below average for all these measurments - not anymore.

Now, I Jeff Ferrara am personally:

  • Longer than 81.7% of men (erect length)

  • Thicker than 83.5% of men (erect girth)

  • Longer than 82.8% of men (flaccid length)

measurements for erect length erect, erect girth, flaccid length, and flaccid girth

My measurements are offically: 6.5 erect length, 5.2 erect girth, and 4.1 flaccid length (all in inches).

Like I said, I wasn't always this way.

How I increased my penis length through traction-methods.

Traction methods are very real.

In fact, they're commonly used in plastic surgery procedures.

Traction methods, in its easily explained form is:

Keeping a body part extended for long periods of time to create permanent change.

That's why you see ear gauges that have stretched to lengths up to a few feet.

That's the traction principle at work.

So how did this apply to my penis?

I simply stretched my penis for long periods of time.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't just think of this on my own - there's a whole community of thousands of men who have done this before me and have literally proven it themselves.

Otherwise, I wouldn't have even tried to do it to being with.

The first thing I tried.

I first started with penis stretching exercies - after all it was completely free and it just required about 30 minutes of my time each day.

While I was starting to get results - a 0.1 inch gain in about two weeks - it was definitely a hassle to do this everyday, especially when I got home tired from work, or just didn't feel like it.

Enter the penis extender.

At that point, I knew I couldn't keep this routine up.

It simply took too much time in my day.

But I didn't want to quit because I knew I was getting results - the ruler was proving it.

That's when I switched over to using a penis extender.


Because it literally holds your penis in the "stretched" traction principle for me, and essentially allowed me to spend zero time on my penis exercises!

It was probably the best time-saving investment that I've ever made.

I was able to reclaim my masculinity - literally because this is my very own penis size we're talking about.

Again, looking at that number knowing that I'm larger than 81.7% of men in terms of erect length - it's something that literally puts a smile on my face when I'm feeling down.

In Conclusion

Most men go through their whole lives being average when it comes to sex.

Not to mention they live average sex lives (sex less than 3 times a year).

But penis size is something that you don't have to be average at.

We've found that the average penis size is:

  • The erect penis is 5.75" (14.61cm) long.

  • The erect penis is 4.67" (11.87cm") in girth.

  • The flaccid penis 3.38" (8.58cm) long when not erect.

We've also taught you how to take these measurements using the Bone-Pressed Flaccid/Erect Methods, as well as the Flaccid/Erect Girth Measurement methods.

These are the essential takeaways to fully understanding how to compare to other men when it comes to penis size.

We've also learned that gaining some size is possible through traction techniques used commonly used in plastic surgery.

It's true. There's no way to get a 12-inch gain, but it's those small half inch to .7 inch gains that will take you way above average and put you into the 80+ percentile, just like me.

It's all up to you whether you want to stay around average or revolutionize your sex life for the better.

If you're looking to add a reasonable .7 inches to your penis through natural stretching, hyperplasia, and traction principles already used in plastic surgery methods - you may be interested in our extender that thousands of men already use.
