The Perfect Penis (and Brain) Size for Sex, According To Women

Ladies want different sizes for different occasions. Really. 

A new study from the University of California and the University of New Mexico decided to explore penis size.

The study took 75 women, between 18 and 65 years old, and began peppering them with questions about what size they actually feel comfortable with. That was done by presenting them with 33 (33!) 3D penis models of varying sizes. They were made of made of rigid, odorless, blue plastic to, well, be fair to men everywhere.

The results found that what the ladies liked in a man was a penis that measured 6.3 inches in length and 4.8 inches around. That was for a long-term relationship. For a one-night stand, they preferred it a bit larger, one that measured 6.4 inches and 5.0 inches in circumference. “The context of the sexual relationship could influence penis size preferences. For example, the goal of the sexual interaction with a one-night partner tends to be pleasure,” reports the study.

Which is a bit problematic for men, because, it turns out, the average male penis is 5.2 inches long and 4.6 inches around. That was determined based on a study of 15,000 male participants.

The good news? Only 2.8 percent of men have an “abnormally small penis.”

So we’re looking at 6.3 and 6.4 next time you guys do feeling like getting the measuring tape out.

The study is groundbreaking because previously only 2D images had been used instead of 3D models. But don’t worry, it’s about the size of your brain too, guys.

“Women’s penis preferences may vary with their relationship expectations. Women prefer more masculine partners for shorter-term sexual relationships,” reports the study. “Women also value intelligence more, and attractiveness less, for long term, as compared to short term, partners.”
