On measurement

It is snowing here in Umbria.  I woke to flurries of snow that are still hours later flurrying but refusing to settle.  So strange when here at Bellaugello Gay Country House just two days ago it was hot and sunny like summer, so much so that I am convinced I have started my annual tan.

Outside is windy and wet and soggy looking, so a day to stay indoors and catch up on various tasks, some requiring serious concentration others less so.  The radio is streaming over the internet, I glance at the computer and google yesterdays news.  Buried half way down the pages, amongst the tragedy and woes is an article reporting a study by King’s College Hospital London into penile measurement.  It seems that they analysed the findings of surveys carried out on more than 1500 men and plotted their results.

Now despite what the female journalists would have us believe I am convinced every man will have surreptitiously clicked the link, read it and reached into his desk drawer for the ruler or measuring tape to see how he measures up.  For those of you who missed the article the research concludes:

Analysis of 17 studies involving more than 15,500 men revealed that the average length of an erect penis was 13.12 centimetres (5.16 inches).

The average length of a flaccid phallus was 9.16 cms (3.6 inches), while the average length of a flaccid stretched penis was 13.24 cms (5.21 inches), according to the research.
