Penis Size Q & A’s from Published Books
Does she (or he) think I’m big enough? Is it too small? Does it point north or east? What’s normal?
If you have wondered how you stack up to other guys, or what your partner thinks of your penis, you are not alone. When it comes to penis size, girth, angle and look, there is no such thing as “normal” and what a man or woman prefers may have nothing to do with size … or it could.
The sourced articles below answer many of the questions regarding various aspects of the penis including “average” and “normal” sizes, and what women (and men) might prefer in their partner’s penis.

- Small Penis Syndrome: Everything You Need To Know
“People with small penis syndrome or PDD [penile dysmorphic disorder] do not have an unusually small penis. Instead, they are severely anxious about their penis size. Having a small penis is not a medical diagnosis. Very rarely, a person’s penis is small enough to interfere with sexual functioning, and doctors will refer to it as a micropenis. People with a micropenis have a penis that is at least 2.5 standard deviations smaller than the average penis.”

- How Big Is The Average Penis?
“The data enabled the researchers to calculate averages and model the estimated distribution of penile dimensions across humanity. … Gentlemen, if you’re eager to see how you measure up, you’ll need to follow the same measurement procedure used in the study. All length measurements were made from the pubic bone to the tip of the glans on the top side of the penis. Any fat covering the pubic bone was compressed before measurement, and any additional length provided by foreskin was not counted. Circumference was measured at the base of the penis or around the middle of the shaft, as the two sites were deemed equivalent.”
