World’s Largest Penis: A Dynamic Report on Global Dick Size [2024 Data]

We spent a long, hard time digging up and compiling facts on: the largest penis, size of penis by country, by ethnicity, and what length women prefer. Read on:

For better or for worse, a man’s penis size is often intertwined with his self-confidence. Some men are proud of the heat they’re packing, while others can feel ashamed or embarrassed of their modest endowments. 

Despite the claims of boisterous guys at bars around the world, the biggest penis on record actually belongs to a small-time actor in New York City. We spent a long, hard time digging up the facts on small penises, big penises, penis size by country or ethnicity, what women prefer, and more. 

Here are some of the girthiest statistics we found on penis size:

  • 0.6% of all men have a micropenis, which is defined as a stretched length of less than 1.9 cm (0.75 inches).
  • The world’s largest penis is 34.29 cm (13.5 inches) long and 20.32 cm (8 inches) in girth. 
  • Asian-Americans have a larger average penis size than East Asians, South Asians, and Southeast Asians. 
  • The record for the world’s smallest penis is held by an anonymous man and measures 0.99 cm (0.39 inches).
  • Cambodia is the only country on record with an average penis size shorter than 4 inches (3.95 inches / 10.04 cm).
  • One study found that 90% of women said girth was more pleasurable and important than length. 
  • Women prefer slightly smaller penises for committed partners (long-term boyfriends or husbands) than they do for one-time sexual partners. 

What’s the Longest Penis on Record?

Spoiler alert – it’s big. It’s hard to imagine lugging around a package that’s over 15% of your body height, but this guy doesn’t seem to mind. 

The world’s longest penis belongs to New York actor Jonah Falcon; it’s 13.5 inches (34.29 cm) long and 8 inches (20.32 cm) in girth.

On flipside there is Roberto Esquivel Cabrera with this 19-inch penis, but there is a kind of dispute around it since Roberto worked to make his member bigger over years. But still – it is the biggest:

What’s the Smallest Penis on Record?

We covered the tall; now it’s time for the small. Medically tiny penises are uncommon, but about 1 in 200 men do have them. While they may not be built for pleasure, micropenises do typically function as well as a normal penis. 

0.6% of men worldwide have a micropenis. This means that their penis has a stretched penile length (SPL) of less than 1.9 cm or 0.75 inches.

The average male infant has an SPL of 2.8 to 4.2 cm (1.1 to 1.6 inches), so in comparison, micropenises are distinguishable and easy to diagnose.

The world’s smallest belongs to an anonymous man and measures 0.39 inches or 0.99 cm.

What’s the Average Penis Size?

At some point, the question has been on every man’s mind – am I smaller than normal? Probably not, but it can feel better to see the numbers. 

The U.S. technically beats the global average, but not by much. These data points show the average penis size worldwide:

Penis Size by Race/Ethnicity

We’re all thinking it, and yes, it’s true. The disparity between the average penis sizes of different ethnic groups isn’t huge, though. From the ethnic group with the largest average penis size to the ethnic group with the smallest, the difference is less than three-quarters of an inch. 

These statistics give a clear picture of penis size by race or ethnicity:

Black/African-American men have the largest average erect penis:

Black/African-American men

Do Women Prefer Larger Penises?

What do women want? Girth, girth, girth. So making his member bigger wont actually help even if it did work. And at least 6 inches, according to a few small studies. Interestingly enough, women may prefer smaller penises for husbands or boyfriends than they do for one-time sexual partners. 

These data points give some insight into how penis size affects attraction: 

One study found that flaccid penis size has a significant impact on male attractiveness; men with larger penises were rated more attractive by women. 

Women preferred slightly larger dimensions for a one-time sexual partner:

6.4 inches
5 inches
16.3 cm
12.7 cm

For husbands of long-term relationships, women preferred a penis:

6.3 inches
4.8 inches
16.0 cm
12.2 cm

Women said that penis girth felt better and was more important than length.
Women in one study reported that they ended a relationship due to their partner’s penis size being too small for them.

Like any other body part, penises come in different shapes and sizes. They can be as long as nearly 14 inches or so little that they don’t reach a single inch. The important thing, though, is that they all work – no matter the size. 

While penises vary by race and country, the ethnic difference in average size is less than an inch. So in that sense, we really aren’t so different after all. 

Some studies show that women prefer a slightly over six inches size, and some say that girth feels better than length during sex. If you’re worried about having an unimpressive package, keep in mind – none of the women in those studies complained about tongue size. 

There’s no limit to how two (or more) people can satisfy each other sexually. A man may not have any control over his penis size, but he can deliver ecstasy in a multitude of different ways. 

In the end, the penis doesn’t define the man – the pleasure does.
