Conceived and designed the experiments: NP GM. Women recalled model size accurately using this method, although they made more errors with respect to penis length than circumference. These first estimates of erect penis size preferences using 3D models suggest women accurately recall size and prefer penises only slightly larger than average.
The average girth is 3. Girth is the circumference of the penis at its widest section. The BJUI research used data from 17 studies, and the study participants totaled more than 15, men.
My last boyfriend had a long but super skinny one, which was weird. They all look pretty much the same and I think the difference is if a guy knows how to fuck. It felt like someone trying to fit their entire body inside me.

A new study has revealed that women prefer a slightly larger penis in a one-time sexual partner compared to a long-term partner. In total, 75 women, ages 18 to 65, took part in the study. When asked to select the model which represented their preferred penis size in a long-term partner, the average response was 6. For a one-time sexual experience, the average plastic penis the women chose was slightly larger — 6.
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 arousaltime 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.
