How many inches do you need to please a woman? There are countless studies that explore the size of a penis and how it correlates to female pleasure.
If you’ve ever wondered if your penis was big enough or long enough to pleasure your partner - you’re not alone. If you’re counting inches to pleasure your female partner, you are certainly not alone. There are countless scientific studies that explore the average size of a penis and how it correlates to female pleasure. Men being concerned, or unhappy with their penis size is not uncommon. In fact, in one study of 200 men, 68% of men were concerned about the size of their penis. In this article, we are going to break down what scientific data we have available to answer the question: What is the ideal penis size?
Keep in mind, the size of your penis is not the only thing to concern yourself with when you consider pleasing your partner. Only 20% of women can achieve orgasm via penetrative sex alone - so penis size certainly is not everything.
In a 1996 lab-controlled study published by the Journal of Urology, researchers gathered penile size data from a sample of 80 men. This article revealed the average penis size erect and flaccid.
This study remains in line with the many penile-size studies (lab-controlled and self-reported) that followed. It is accepted that the average erect penis length is 5 inches and a bit. ( research shows 5.1 to 5.5 inches)Most men are within 1 inch of the average penis size, give or take.
All women vary when it comes to their sexual pleasure and sexual preferences in bed. However, in a recent 2012 study published by The Journal of Sexual Medicine, researcher Stuart Brody Ph.D. found those who prefer deep vaginal penetration are more likely to experience vaginal orgasms (orgasms not associated with other types of stimulation). In this case, a longer penis would be ideal for female pleasure. The exact size was not studied, but a focus on a longer than average penis was suggested.
In an interesting preference study, women were asked to pick a 3D penis model out of a line-up after being prompted with a few situational and sexual attraction questions. Most women chose the slightly above average size penis model as their ideal penis size (in this case it was 6.3 inches erect). Some women preferred a longer penis for a one-time sexual encounter versus a more average size in a long-term partner.
It’s important to consider the woman’s vaginal canal is very adaptable to whatever is inserted into the canal. The vaginal walls are expandable and collapsible, so no matter the girth, most women’s vaginas can accommodate you.
In an online survey of over 50,000 men and women, 85 percent of women reported being perfectly happy with the size of their partner’s penis, while half of the men were not happy with their penis size. This might suggest the worries men have concerning their penis size are unwarranted. Just because a woman might pick a 6.3-inch 3D penis from a lineup in a preference study, that doesn’t mean she wouldn’t also be happy with a more average 5.5-inch penis. It really comes down to how attentive you are to your partner’s sexual desires rather than penile length.
