We’ve got some big news.
A recent medical study has found that the global average length of an erect penis has grown 24% over the last 29 years.
The study was led by Dr. Michael Eisenberg, a urologist and male fertility specialist at Stanford Medicine, and was published in The Worlds Journal of Men’s Health on Tuesday.
Eisenberg and his team took a look at penile-length-data from the last at least 80 years, which included 75 studies on nearly 56,000 men around the world.
The study concluded that, “erect penile length is getting longer, from an average of 4.8 inches to 6 inches, over the past 29 years.”
Eisenberg thought his findings were “very surprising,” as he actually thought the average size would’ve decreased, given the declining rates of sperm counts and testosterone levels.
He’s not exactly sure why members are growing in size, but he reckons it could be to do with earlier puberty in recent years, therefore giving blokes a longer time to develop. Or it could possibly be to do with more chemical exposure to hygiene products or other chemicals that exist in our modern environment and diet.
Dr. Larry Lipshultz from Baylor College of Medicine reckons internet porn could also have something to do with it.
According to LadBible, Dr. Lipshultz said:
“You might possibly blame online porn, but that’s just a theory. The more someone has erections, there might be greater potential for better erections.
“The tissue would stretch more, hence would get longer.”
In other recent schlong stories, a new study has found that blokes with small penises are more likely to buy flashy sports cars.
