It is quite true that most straight men base off their size by looking at porn. The locker room comparison is a hit and miss as showers love to show more than growers do. And flaccid size is not the best indicator of a true erection size (although there is a slight correlation). So a typical straight male would think that 7” is not as big as it really is. When in fact, 7” is above-average, meaning a guy with 7” is bigger than at least 60% of all males (if not an even greater number).
Then we have gays and girls who have personally experienced with other males. What I find interesting is that their view is biased as to what they are seeking after. If you ask a size queen, he or she is going to tell you that there are BIG ONES out there. Their reality is somewhat distorted as that’s what they want to go after. And then there are the group where eagles fly with eagles. A typical hung gay male may tend to go after another hung male; even though there are definitely exceptions as to opposite attraction, it is quite common to see gay personal ads of hung guys going after another hung guy.
To me, the reality of true average is very hard to determine. A range of average would be a better description. But even then, I find an average is best described with reference to ethnicity/race. For example, if I were to randomly pick 100 Caucasian males from Britain (just picking any places really), chances are the average would be around 5.5-6.5”. However, there may be more variances within this group—ie. out of 100 Caucasian males, 10 of them are 8”+ and 10 of them are under 4.5”. The range can differ 3-4” apart.
By the same token, if I were to pick 100 Chinese (be very specific here) males, their average penis is likely to range around 4.5-6” or less. Again, there are some Chinese males that are 7”+ and there are also some that are under 4”. The range can easily be 3”+.
However, if I were to compare Caucasians with Chinese Asians, the difference in the averages would be probably 1/2 - 1” (my best guess based on my personal experiences).
Then there is perceptual differences. A typical Chinese Asian male may be around 5’6 - 5’8, so a 5.5” penis may appear to be like 6”+ on him. Whereas a typical Caucasian may be around 5’8-5’10 in height, so the same 5.5” all of sudden appears to be small.
Anyway, I hope I have made my point.
You throw around 8+ like it’s 10% of the population, and 7+ is only 60%. Are you going by BP?
Then (2007) 7"bpel x 5".5
Now (9/2009) 7".5 bpel x 5".75 (currently 5.6) I guess I lost a wee bit
Now 9/2011 7.75 bpel x 5 5/8
