I almost exclusively watch amateur porn to shield myself from demoralising monster wangs. I think I have seen 2 sub 5” girth cocks in all the vids I have viewed…
Porn in all of its forms screws with our perceptions. Determining girth from a video is more difficult than determining length; and determining length is hard enough. I have seen a good deal of amateur porn as well, and my estimations put the majority of guys in the 4.75” - 5.25” girth range. It is all a guess anyway since there are few tape measures in porn.
Perhaps what GirthQuest sees as all being 5”+ in girth is correct. Could this easily be explained away by self-selection bias? If not then perhaps it gives some credence to Mr. T’s assertion that 5.25 is average, if not statistically, then perhaps perceptually.
I tend to trust the statistics though (including our own SizeDB) that claims average girth is slightly less than 5”.
Mr. T, in addition to porn and the PSD site, could another factor in your perception be your increased size. You are now firmly in the above average category (statistically) in length and girth (perhaps even “big”). This is what you see whenever you are erect, therefore this size is now the norm for you; your “average” if you will. This could be skewing the way you perceive size.
It has happened to me. I have a cardboard tube cut to 7.5”x5.5” from a paper towel roll. This was my original goal with PE (and still is…maybe). I used to think it was huge, but as I creep closer to attaining that length it is starting to appear much shorter than I used to think, although I logically know that it is not.
Length for show. Girth for "Whoa"!
