Now, a new study could assuage such worries with what may be the most accurate penis-size measurements to date. So when Veale and his team set out to settle the score on penile proportions, they decided to compile data from clinicians who followed a standardized measuring procedure. Published today in the British Journal of Urology International , their new study synthesizes data from 17 previous academic papers that included measurements from a total of 15, men from around the world. The data enabled the researchers to calculate averages and model the estimated distribution of penile dimensions across humanity. The corresponding girth measurements are 9. A graph of the size distribution shows that outliers are rare.
