Just found this article interpreting the Lifestyle penis size survey.
Most intereting quotes:
....The average is 5.88\", however the nature of distribution means the average is not the same as most common. This is because the few very long ones, bias things. So the median is 5.65\". That\'s the point where 50% will be larger and 50% smaller. It\'s the typical size. \"
....The average is 4.97\", however the nature of distribution means the average is not the same as most common. The median is 4.67\". That\'s the point where 50% will be larger and 50% smaller. It\'s the typical size.\"
keep in mind that even this study might have sample bias, because the insecure guys (more than a 100 couldn\'t have an erection when they were told that it would be a nurse who would measure them) didn\'t show up

The moderators have never denied that some women like or even prefer a bigger unit. But if you aren\'t getting laid at the present moment, I assure you it isn\'t strictly due to your size. You probably also lack a sense of humor. Possibly a lack of fashion sense too?
You are missing the point. If it\'s just a one night stand you are looking for, then I suppose Girth can play a more significant role in such affairs. However, if you are looking for a serious partner, then Girth/size is just one of many attributes for attraction, and is seldom a deal breaker. Can added size lead to added confidence ultimately leading to improved attraction? Sure, but there are plenty of men (like the ones who haven\'t even bothered googling penis enlargement) who enjoy very satisfying sexual relationships and exude plenty of confidence while possessing average sizes. So yes, a sense of humor, a great personality, a nice smile, a gym body, career-orientation, education, and other characteristics can provide the same zeal a penis enlargement surgery may (or may not) give you.
As our Veteran Sizemic pointed out, he was having plenty of enjoyable sex at 4.5\" EG (which mind you, is well within the average bracket), and I know many other men in my own personal life who aren\'t necessarily thick who have it good with the ladies.
Furthermore, most of the Moderators have or intend on getting Girth procedures...why would they do this if they didn\'t think Girth counted for something? Point is, don\'t focus so much on your size if you want to be desirable. Personality, health & hygiene, fashion sense, etc can be just as (if not more) important. It\'s a total package thing.
How about you read more before making sweeping generalizations of our comments. I\'d appreciate it, thanks.
I have had no impact on my \"psychy\" ... perhaps I am an outlier... but I was banging chicks just fine with my 4.5\" Girth and I have continued to bang chicks on an equal frequency with my huge Girth. If anything my confidence has dropped due to gaining 40 pounds. PMMA and penis enlargement has had very very little positive impact on my confidence or pyschy.
Just saying. Guys can\'t go into this thinking it will cure their malaise.
edit: My motivations for doing this were likely different than most so that could be why?

This is exactly what more urologists and other \"experts\" need to understand.
As you know I don\'t think you were a good candidate for the procedure at this juncture, due to your size and the fact it clearly wasn\'t impacting your life that much. Yet you can testify to what an impact it\'s had on your psyche, so one can only imagine what it would do to a guy who is living in total misery due to penis size issue\'s and can\'t lead a \"normal\" life because of it.

I definitely like the increased size. Life changer. Confident beyond words. I used to cut dates short and who knows how many sexual experiences I missed out on. Those days are gone. Should have had this when I was 20!!!!
The problem with medians and averages and all the other hoopla is the fact that it misses the of the matter. If a woman desires a large penis, because she has experienced one and it was good, than medians and averages are throwaways - not relevant. I\'ve been there and told myself I\'m average, or close to average - it wasn\'t relevant.... I finally got serious and to the point of obsession worked on my junk. I\'m still not done but I actually had one girl tell me that I was \"gargantuan\" and that my brothers was an amazing feeling - especially after years of looking at charts and telling myself I was average.... I still believe the emotional connection is more important - love conquers all - but in the long run, in a relationship, when it gets down to meat and potatoes, a little extra size certainly helps.. My 2 cents.
Yes, the most common is the mode and not the median. But most people think that 50% is below average and the other 50% is above average, which is not the case. This is the median, which is smaller than the average penis size.
I haven\'t had a math class in years but the median as stated here is simply the mid point where 50%are smaller and 50% are larger however that is not the most common. For that we need to know the mode not the median. That is something I\'m really curious about and not by 1 in differences.
