Admit it: You’ve always wanted to know where the big ones are.
And at long last, you can consider those dirty questions answered! A new study that reviewed the measurements of more than 15,000 men found the average size of an erect penis worldwide is 5.17 inches. Luckily for you though, we’ve also found the averages for individual countries, based on slightly-less-reliable self-reported data. But if boobs and women are more your thing, we’ve also mapped the national averages for bra size. Check it out:
It turns out North Korean males have the lowest average penis length (3.8 inches) in the world (and in general, Southeast Asia penises tend to be less than 5″). While cursed with an inferiority complex and an annoying need to compare themselves to Americans, Canadian males will be happy to know that with an average penis length of 5.5″, they are almost half an inch more generously endowed than their American counterparts (Woohoo!).
In terms of regional trends, we tend to see longer dongs in the Southern hemisphere, specifically African and South American countries. As for international bragging rights: the longest average penises in the world (7.1″) can be found in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
When switching over to breast size, you pretty much get an inversion of the penis length data. The largest average bra cup sizes (larger than D cup) can be found in Russia, Finland, Norway and Sweden—all chilly, Northern countries. Generally speaking, equatorial countries tend to have smaller breasts, with many nations in and around the equator having A and B as their most frequent cup size. Meanwhile, on the home front, Canadian woman have slightly less ample bosoms than our southern neighbours (our average cup size is a C, whereas America is a D).
Ok, we know it takes all kind of body types to make the world go round—so why not dive into this map and explore some of the finer details of this nuanced dataset?
And just remember: It’s not about the size, it’s how you use it.
