Is the girth of your penis important?

couple-riverPenis girth is the measure of thickness of / around your penis. Technically, penis girth is the measurement of the circumference of the completely erect penis. It is variously quoted as an average of three measurements: just below the glans penis, in the middle of the shaft, and at the base.

What is the average girth of penis?

As there are variations in size and shape of penises depending on regional, racial and familial inheritance, there is no universal average length or girth.  The Kinsey Institute and other human sexuality researchers estimate that the average penis length is 5.5 to 6.5 inches and the average penis width (circumference) is 4 to 5 inches. After unit conversions, simple calculations show that to be a diameter (distance across) of about 1.25 to 1.6 inches, a width about equivalent to an empty roll of scotch tape.

Is girth of the penis important?

According to many sexperts and sexologists, it is not so much the length of the penis, but the width that matters in the long run. In many ways, this is true. Girth gives strength and consistence to the penis body; during penetration the third part of a woman's vagina feels the most sensation. Vagina is a muscle that can be stretched to very large proportions: It is made to fit entire babies, so there is no problem to fit any male member as well. When a penis enters vagina, it stretches vaginal wall, stimulating the nerves inside, this is what makes women really enjoy. The reason is that the majority of the nerves that are stimulated during penetration (both the vaginal and anal varieties) are located close to the entrance of the vagina and anus. This makes length less important and width that much greater a factor since it's the stretching of the vaginal or anal walls that stimulates the nerves.

In a small study done in 2000, Russell Eisenman of the University of Texas-Pan American, found that 45 out of 50 women questioned stated that girth was significant in sexual satisfaction. It was concluded that this is caused due to the increased surface area of the penis which fills out the vaginal walls much better in a woman. However, this study did not offer measurements as to what an “unacceptable” girth might be.

How to measure the girth of the penis?

It is important for you to know the girth of your penis before you try to start increasing both the girth and length of your penis. You can know your girth penis by measuring at the mid-section when it is fully erect. Stimulate blood through your penis gently all long the body of the penis. Once it gets to the maximum thickness, wrap a tape around it touching on all sides. Take into account the closest quarter inch. You should not take the measurement from the area below the head or at the base as these areas have a larger circumference.

How to increase the girth of the penis?


In a typical girth-enhancement surgery, fat from the lower abdominal wall is drawn out through liposuction and injected beneath the loose skin of the penile shaft to create an illusion of thickening. Alternatively, dermal or other free grafts are layered around the penile shaft, beneath the skin sleeve, to increase girth. However, with the passage of time, the injected fat or free grafts, both of which are avascular i.e. without blood supply, only die, a phenomenon known as necrosis. This necrosis will sooner or later cause the penis to return to its original pre-operative dimensions. Also, in the process of necrosis, fibrous nodules and a cosmetically disfigured, uneven, lumpy penile contour can all occur.


One of the more common penis enlargement exercise techniques is known as the jelq. Now in terms of improving your length and girth, jelqing is quite helpful. The milking motions of the jelq increases blood flow to your penis and stimulates cell growth as it involves pulling your penis away from your body. When the exercise is done consistently over time it can add an inch or more to your penis. This technique also encourages bigger, harder erections and helps you to last longer in the bedroom.

Traction Device

Studies have shown that the overall cross section of the penis (its girth or width) is known to increase from consistent tensile stress. They work by applying traction to the corpora cavernosa in your penis, this causes cells to break away from the walls and duplicate. As these new cells accumulate in your penis, this enables your penis to hold more blood; achieve harder erections for longer; reduce premature ejaculation and penile curvatures and most importantly adds inches to your penis.. Therefore the penis will gain thickness as well as length through the use of traction devices. So for more credible gains, penis extenders can help. Good ones don’t have to be pricey and in the long term are worth their money.
