Is a big penis more attractive than a mid-size model? What about a small penis? Penises might be more practical than pretty, but that doesn’t mean that women aren’t more attracted to some than others. Research shows that some packages are, regardless of penis size, considered better-looking than others.
But to men who aren’t attracted to other men, it can be confounding to figure out what kind of penis women prefer, and what makes it attractive.
Grooming? Upkeep? Shape? Slight bend? Smoothness? The long and the short of it is that when it comes to what makes a penis attractive, dimensions matter and, while there’s no clear “Golden Penis Ratio,” penis girth may be more important than people realize.
Penis size bone of contention for men
Penis size is a bone of contention for many men and it seems like everyone has an opinion on it. Thankfully, a team of researchers had finally come up with the definitive penis size that women prefer and it turns out, bigger isn’t always better.
The new study has found that not only do women overwhelmingly prefer ‘average’ sized penises but we have slightly different preferences if the penis we’re encountering is a long-term lover or a one night stander you may, or may not have met on Tinder.
There is not man out there who hasn’t wondered, at some point, how their penis size measures up. Who hasn’t measured their own, then questioned whether they’re measuring from the correct point, and tried to steal an extra inch by sliding the ruler further down (for those in doubt, you do it from the top, starting where penis meets torso). Well, ideal-penis-size-questioning-men, you need wonder no more.
Sound the klaxons, scream it from the mountaintops, gather the villagers from their huts and clink every glass in the cabinet, for we have found the FINAL and official word on the ideal penis size and it is dogma.
6.3 inches, or 6.4 inches
It is 6.3 inches, or 6.4 inches for a one-time encounter. Six Point Three. Six Point Four. That’s the end of it. Stop Googling questions about penis size. You’re done now.
A study from the University of California and the University of New Mexico took 75 women, aged between 18 and 65, and presented them with 33 different-sized 3D penis models made of rigid, odourless (very considerate), blue plastic to “minimise racial skin-colour cues.”
The results found that the average preference was for a penis that measured 6.3 inches in length and 4.8 inches around. Whereas for a one-time sexual encounter, the average plastic penis the women chose was larger, measuring 6.4 inches and 5.0 inches in circumference.
Maximise receiving sexual benefits
‘To maximise the chances of receiving the sexual benefits it makes sense that women might prefer a larger girth penis that brings the clitoral glans closer to the friction point and also will stimulate the crura [legs] of the clitoris internally more,’ Prause said.
Men should think ‘fit’ rather than ‘fat’
‘Since context matters, men should be thinking ‘fit’ rather than ‘fat’ with respect to their penis size. In other words, women may prefer different sizes for different reasons at different times, so chances are very good any guy is someone’s ideal for the relationship type they are seeking.’
