Average Penis Size By Race

The Truth About Penis Size By Race

Many men treat penis size by race as if it is a rule of thumb. While average penis size does vary slightly by race and ethnicity, it is a myth that one race always has a bigger penis than another race.

Why is this an issue? Because many men tie their penis size to their confidence. This leads many men to try penis enlargement pills and procedures that are unsafe. In reality, 85 percent of women are satisfied with their partner’s penis size, yet 45 percent of men feel like their penis is too small.

The only FDA-cleared procedure for penis enlargement is the Himplant (Penuma's next-gen male enhancement solution).

Penis enlargement surgery with Himplant can increase the girth of your penis approximately 1 to 2 inches on average. Penile length increases are typically reported as well. Erect length gains are unpredictable but can develop over time. When considering this procedure, it’s important to be realistic about your expectations. Many men feel inadequate, but in reality, they most likely fall in the average range of size.

What Is The Average Penis Size By Race?

Boston Medical Group compiled data from 20 studies on penis size from around the world and they found flaccid penis length to be 3.61 inches and flaccid penis girth to be 3.66 inches. When erect, the average penis length was found to be 5.16 inches in length and the average penis girth was 4.59 inches.

The range of average penis size by race is pretty big, with the smallest being 1.6 inches and the largest being 10.2 inches. With that being said, race and ethnicity matter very little.

Penis sizes vary by ethnicity, but only when it comes to average size for an ethnic group. In other words, a man of one ethnicity will not always have a larger penis size compared to someone of another ethnic group with a lower average size. In general, the average penis length is slightly longer in black or African American men compared to other ethnic or racial groups. The average length in this group is 14.75 cm, but by comparison, the average white or Caucasian penis size is only a quarter of a centimeter smaller, at 14.5 cm. The average penis size among men of East Asian ethnicity is slightly smaller, at 12.9 cm. The global average is 13.71 cm. This is ranking of the average penis length by ethnicity:

  1. African-American/ Black
  2. White/Caucasian and Hispanic/Latino
  3. Asian American
  4. Middle-Eastern
  5. South-East Asian
  6. South Asian
  7. East Asian

Penis girth or circumference also varies across ethnicities. The rankings are the same:

  1. African-American/ Black and Hispanic/Latin
  2. White/Caucasian
  3. Asian American
  4. Middle-Eastern
  5. South-East Asian
  6. South Asian
  7. East Asian

Ethnicity And Penis Size

Again, it’s important to note that an individual’s penis size cannot be predicted by race or ethnicity. Within each ethnic group, there is a large range of sizes. Among the African-American ethnic group, there appears to be a larger variety of sizes than in Whites and Hispanics, which means there are more extremely small or large penises. There is a lot of diversity within racial groups with respect to penis size, just as there are variations in height and weight among men in different ethnic or racial groups. Some of this variation is due to genetic factors and some of the variation is due to environmental factors like diet and health.

There have been a number of studies measuring penis size in different countries and age groups, but none of these studies can conclusively help predict an individual’s penis size. These differences between racial and ethnic groups are also diminishing as the world becomes more interconnected. Genetic differences between racial and ethnic groups are no longer as pronounced as they were when people lived in greater isolation.

Do Women Care About Penis Size?

Data from a 2002 study published in the European Journal of Urology shows that women don’t care about penis size as much as men think they do. Only 20 percent of women surveyed said penis size was important, while only 1 percent said it was very important. Conversely, 55 percent said it was unimportant and 22 percent said it was very unimportant.

What Is The Relationship Between Weight And Penis Size?

Penis size by weight actually provides more meaningful data than penis size by race. Studies show that for every 30-50 pounds over the average weight, men lose an inch of visible penis length.

The best thing obese men can do to increase penis length is to get suprapubic fat removal surgery.

Micropenis: Perception vs. Reality

Studies show that 12.5 percent of men think they have a micropenis, when in reality only .06 percent of the male population have a true micropenis.

A micropenis is defined as being 3 inches or smaller when flaccid and smaller than 5 inches when erect.

If you do have a micropenis, then you may be candidate for Himplant. Schedule a consultation to learn more about penis size by race, and how Himplant, the evolved successor to Penuma, can bring you into the range of average penis size.
