Questions You've Always Wondered About

Courtesy of The Hammer, comes Average Penis size, by country.

Importantly, they distinguish between countries with self-reported data and measured data. All I can say is ... South Korea? Damn dude, that's rough.

I notice that this study doesn't provide any links to an original paper. According to the rules of the internet, this means that the data is probably unreliable and/or made-up.

On the other hand, at worst this would put it on par with ... every other discussion about penis size in the history of the world. So it's hard to be worse quality data than the average bar room talk.

These two graphs were especially hilarious, contrasting self-reported and measured length by each racial group.Unfortunately, the credibility of the graphs is called into question when they spell the word 'length' incorrectly in two different ways, and the numbers reported on the columns don't seem to correspond to the numbers on the axes.

Like Santa Claus, I'd like to believe that this data is real, but I just can't. I'm sure actual data exists somewhere, but I'm worried about what will come up in google when I try to search for it.


  1. Well it's a poor table that doesn't allow you to sort its contents by clicking on a column head. But I guess it's not intended as a vacation planner.

  2. Ah yes, if you want to know the largest or smallest average "Lenenght", sadly you'll have to slum it and read through the whole table.

    For some vacation planning tips, you could always try Disco Stu's "An Englishman in Ibiza". Relevant parts at 1:40 and 2:50.
