The 'Ideal' Penis Size For Women Is Bigger Than Average: Study

Stop what you're doing because there's another ideal penis size for men and women to obsess over.

According to a 2015 report from the University of California and the University of New Mexico, the ideal penis size for women is 6.3 inches or 6.4 inches for a one-time encounter.

Researchers showed women between the ages of 18 and 65 years old 33 different 3-D penis models made of blue plastic, Cosmo reports.

On average, women preferred 6.3-inch penises with 4.8 inches around, and for one-night hookups, they preferred something larger: 6.4 inches, which is shown in the graphic below.


"These first estimates of erect penis size preferences using 3D models suggest women prefer penises only slightly larger than average," the paper noted.

Now, before we all start getting judgmental on all the different penis sizes we've seen in our lives, let us remind you this study was small — only 75 women were involved.

In 2013, one study found the average penis length in the U.S. was 5.6 inches, the Toronto Sun reports.

Women and men have different tastes when it comes to penis length and there really is no "ideal size."

One survey from British online medical website Dr. Ed found that the ideal penis size changed depending on the country.

The survey found in the U.K., for example, the ideal penis size was 5.5 inches (the average was 4.8 inches) and in Austria, the ideal size was 6.9 inches (the average was 6.1 inches).

"Women may prefer different sizes for different reasons at different times, so chances are very good any guy is someone's ideal for the relationship type they are seeking," researcher Dr. Nicole Prause told the Daily Beast after the 2015 study was released.

“To maximize the chances of receiving the sexual benefits it makes sense that women might prefer a larger girth penis that brings the clitoral glans closer to the friction point."

Ideal and average penis sizes might make some men feel insecure, especially if they fall below the average. But as it turns out, most women just don't care about length or girth.

One survey conducted by Cosmopolitan in 2015 found 89 per cent of women weren’t concerned about their partner’s penis size.
