Perceived and Actual Penis Size

Perceived Penis Sizes

Using survey data first published here, researchers found that the perceived ideal penis size and the perceived average penis length were often different, with perceived ideal length always greater than perceived average. That is, the survey respondents, both male and female, suggested that ideal penis length is greater than the average length.  These data are plotted below and also include the average penis length from Hudson et al.

Of particular interest is the finding that both the perceived ideal and average are much larger than the average actual penis length.  As shown below, both females and males desire an ideal penis that is larger than the average penis, by a few cm or just over an inch.  In the case of females their ideal penis is 3.36 cm, or 1.32 in, larger than the average penis.
