Good news for mankind and potentially bad news for anyone who ever had to deal with male egos: A new study says the average penis size has grown by about an inch in just the last year. This totally scientific undertaking, done by the condom brand SKYN, relied on self-reported measurements from 3,000 sexually active people. Would such people have any reason to lie? We’ll let you be the judge.
SKYN’s findings, as reported by the Sun, have been compared to more thorough research done by King’s College London in 2015. That study, which used findings from measurements taken by medical professionals of 15,000 men, said the average erect penis length is 5.16 inches. This new study, reliant on non-medical professionals, says the average penis length for 18 to 34 year olds is 6.1 inches while at full attention.
Could this discrepancy be related to a December study that said men almost always lie about their penis size or do millennials really have bigger tools at their disposal? Could such dubious research in any way benefit SKYN and its bottom line? And could men possibly talk about the size of their dicks any more?
These are questions for an honest man, if such a thing exists.
