Fat or Thin? Penis aspect ratio distribution
Some dicks are thin and long, others short and fat, and if you’re lucky you’re both long and fat. But what is the average shape and what is the distribution of penis shapes?
The ratio of a things length to its width is called its aspect ratio.
I have been interested in the aspect ratio of penises since I discovered this board and realized that my own unit (before PE) was rather unusually short and fat. My initial size was 5.25 x 5.5, in other words my dick was bigger in girth than it was in length. In researching PE here at TP I came to realize that such short/fat dicks, with an aspect less than 1.0, were rather rare. But how rare? And what is a “normal” aspect ratio? And what about the other end of the spectrum, how common are long and skinny cocks?
To answer these questions I dipped into the TP measurement database and produced the following histogram showing the distribution of penis aspect ratios.
The average Len/Girth ratio is: 1.28 STD.Dev.= 0.14
Penises with aspect <1 = about 2%
To put that in perspective:
Size - Aspect Ratio
7 x 6 = 1.17 — somewhat fatter that average aspect
8 x 6 = 1.33 — somewhat longer/skinnier that average aspect
9 x 6 = 1.5 - - very much longer/skinnier that average aspect (93 percentile)
9 x 7 = 1.28 — Right on average
2008 Starting size: 5.25 BPEL, 5.5 girth, vol. 12.7
2009 Plateau reached 6.5 BPEL, 6.0 girth, vol. 18.6
