They come in all shapes and sizes, but according to a recent study, the average penis size is around around 5 to 6 inches when erect. That might seem a bit smaller than is ideal, but maybe you should adjust your expectations. You might think you want a big penis, but maybe average is better — here’s why:

  1. You can do way more positions. If a guy is on the smaller or bigger side, certain positions can be tough. If he’s in the average range, the world is your sexual oyster and you can pretty much try anything without too much discomfort.
  2. He works harder. I’ve heard that a lot of ‘average’ sized guys think that they’re smaller, which makes them better lovers — they not only have a good sized package, but also work harder to satisfy you. That’s never a bad thing.
  3. It hits the spot perfectly every time. The average size is well-equipped to hit your g-spot without loads of extra maneuvering. This makes it easier for both of you to get where you’re going, every time.
  4. Huge ones can be painful. I once dated a guy so big I thought there was something wrong with me because the sex hurt. Turns out, having a huge one hitting your cervix wall is never fun and can be painful. It might seem good in theory or while watching online sex, but do you really want something like that inside you.
  5. Oral is easier. When a guy’s penis is too big or too small, oral can be a bit more complicated to navigate. With an average sized penis, it’s easier to please your partner without it getting lost in your mouth or causing you to gag all over him. Given that most men really love BJs, this is a big thing.
  6. It’s more visually appealing. Small ones can look less attractive and big ones can be just downright terrifying. It’s all about a happy medium. If you’re a woman who really appreciates a man’s body, an average size penis just fits, and it’s great to look at and fantasize about.
  7. It’s never a let down. The first time you have sex with a guy, it’s always a toss of the dice. When it shows up average you never have to feign excitement or try in vain to cover up your disappointment.
  8. Guys with big penises tend to be huge penises, anyway. The bigger his member, the cockier he may be because of the age-old tale that all women want a guy with a huge one. And cocky guys are usually only good for one thing.
