Urology/Penis size


Hello Steven, I was wondering as a medical professional what you consider to be the average penis size for a fuly developed male? I'm about 5.3 inches in length and 4.5 in girth, I'm curious as I where I land on the average scale and of this length is sufficient to provide a female with orgasm.



Length is almost never the issue about female orgasm.  Girth is more of an issue.  You are about in the middle of the normal range as far as size.  There are lots of studies and they don't all agree.  Typical length is from about 3.5 inches to 8 with average or median around 6.
