There have been many studies, surveys, ect regarding a man’s penis size. From the couples on here – wives have you ever measured your husband just out of curiosity? What was the result in length and girth?
My DH had made some joking comments about being undersized, and I felt his assessment was inaccurate. Like SR, I did some sneaky measuring against my palm and then checked my palm against a tape later and confirmed my view. I then made a point to bring measuring into foreplay and show him empirical evidence that his is on the long end of the average range (which I had looked up and made sure he saw for himself.) I felt like the fact he had made a joke could have indicated some insecurity in that department, and I wanted to build him up. If he had turned out to be on the short side, I would have found another way to build him up. I just want him to feel as good about himself as I feel about him. If knowing his penis “measures up” well stacks one more brick in his foundation of confidence, well, yay penis length!
Yes, we have measured. I had a lot of pain early on and actually had to do some female Physical Therapy to be stretched. My husband is 7 inches long, never measured the girth but maybe I will … still, we must be careful to choose certain positions and if for some reason we are unable to have PIV for a while (maybe a trip), we have to again be careful and use certain techniques in order for us to get things going again.
I don’t think we’ve ever measured it, we’re happy with what we’ve got.
But in any case, I wonder if length really matters that much. When I play with DW and insert my fingers, I can just about feel her cervix with the tip of my finger, so that’s about 4 inches deep. Anything longer than that and it wouldn’t go in any further anyway…
No, never measured, and never thought to do it either.
Wondering why a wife would want to measure? To tell him he’s SO big (and inflate his head)? To tell others how big he is? Who shares that information anyway?
I don’t get it. It seems pointless. Maybe someone can enlighten me. 🙂
One valid reason to measure size would be for making sure to get the appropriate fit for a penis sleeve/extension. Or for condoms for that matter. Another valid reason would be to keep him from being insecure about it (men tend to underestimate their size, whereas women often overestimate).
But lets face it–us guys think about size way more than the typical women. I think it’s just built into us–our oldest (who is still quite a ways from puberty) has even expressed concern about his size. For women–I think only something like 15% of women identify as “size queens”, where bigger is considered significantly superior. And those that are “size queens” are almost always capable of PIV-only orgasms.
We measured together several years ago. This was before we started reading marriage blogs, etc. At the time I was very concerned about my wife’s lack of physical stimulation from plain intercourse. Of course, being a normal penis centric man who had seen some porn, I was worried that maybe I was too small. That was not the case. DW thought it was funny and of course said it made absolutely no difference to her.
My wife, who is normally not very vocal at all, has a couple of times referred to size in a positive manner during sex. I found this an incredible turn on. So you ladies who are looking for something to add to erotic talk, this one is a can’t miss for your husband.
The latest quality research indicates worldwide average bone pressed length at only 5.2″ and girth at 4.6″. I worry that with all the porn saturation that both men, and women as well now that their porn numbers have skyrocketed, have a greatly distorted view of what the normal range is. Porn is obviously full of the top 1% of penis size. According to the research anything over 6.3″ is in the 95th percentile!
My wife has measured both my length and girth, but mainly in a playful way as part of sex play, to “brag” about me during erotic talk in bed. So yes, it’s a thing. Like many men, I had already measured myself many times and knew exactly how big I was and how I “measured up” in surveys, etc. I admit I can get a bit nerdy about it. Anyway, for us, it’s been a fun part of our marriage bed.
