How do we perceive average & ideal penis length
Studies in this area are numerous, and the average size of the erect penis was established at 13.12 cm by the British Journal of Urology International (BJUI). Another research conducted by the National Academy of Surgery, showed that on average, men were comprised somewhere between 12.8 and 14.5 cm.
What's the average penis size ?
Two elements play a major role in the concerns about the size of the penis: on the one hand the perception of what the average actual size is, and on the other hand, the idea that people have of the ideal penis size.
When it comes to the notion of ideal size, it becomes clear that expectations do not always match reality! For women, the ideal penis is between 1 cm & 2 cm larger than the estimated average size. The question is whether this 1 cm or 2 cm difference could have a significant impact on a man's or a woman's satisfaction during intercourse.
It is also interesting to observe that men seem to judge themselves even more harshly: while the estimated average size is close to the one estimated by women, men on the other hand think that the ideal size of the penis is between 1.5 cm & 2.5 cm larger. When ask about the ideal penis size, the average answer was 16.6 cm!
What women really think about it

Does it really matter ?
If you really need to speak "numbers", about two thirds, or 67.4%, attach a very relative importance to it without making it a subject of major interest. More than one in five women (21.4%) believe that penis size is unimportant compared to 11.2% who consider it essential.
Too big is not a synonym for pleasure
18 cm penis only affect 1% of men, and so much the better because the vagina, on the other hand, have an average depth of 10 cm.
According to this study, 30% of women said they had pain during their last intercourse.
Because having a big rod is not enough to give pleasure, on the contrary!
If you're too big, there's a great chance that it becomes painful. This is not the way to go for an activity that is supposed to provide pleasure, especially as women do not always express that they are in pain.
The stats you must know
The goal of deep penetration is not really the pleasure of the two partners, but is primarily designed for men, then possibly for women (moreover it generally ceases when the man has finished). It is the establishment of an unequal relationship as a model.
Less than one in five women reach an orgasm through penetration alone. Women who never have reach orgasm, or rarely, are twice as numerous among those who devote to pure penetration. Sometimes, pleasure lays in diversifying practices. For three quarters of the women, touching the clitoris is either an absolute condition for reaching pleasure, or the condition for better orgasm (not every orgasm feel the same). The almighty power of the penis is then taken down, sure, but it's not about throwing penetration out the window. The more erogenous zones stimulated, the better it works.
Size does not make it all for women
Researchers at the National Australian University developed a protocol to determine the importance of the male crotch in female attraction, based on other factors already known to appeal women: height and shoulder width compared to the hips. The results were published in 2013 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (Pnas). In all, 105 heterosexual women, averaging 26 years old, were recruited. They were asked to rate computer-modeled images of uncovered men on a scale of 1 to 7. These virtual males existed in 7 different sizes, with 7 different penis lengths but also 7 shoulder widths. Each woman viewed a total of 53 silhouettes of the 343 available.
Women who like men, like them tall and/or strong
Conclusion, it is better to be tall, strong and have a long penis to look more appealing to women. No revelations then ... In fact, there are many nuances in the end. The size of the penis is an influential parameter: attraction increases very sharply for each centimeter gained below 7.6 cm at rest. From this threshold, women always judge men with long penis better, but the impact then becomes much less important. Much like a threshold effect, although up to 13cm (maximum length in this study), the ratings kept going up. Note, however, that a previous study revealed that the average height was around 9 cm at rest.
However, a man of 1.85 m with a rod of 7 cm will be as well noted as a male of 1.70 m with a penis of 11 cm. But in reality, taller men gain more "points of attraction", at equivalent increase in root size, than smaller men. These two parameters are in any case supplanted by men with a V-shaped bust, a very important feature for women.

Not tall? Not strong? Not big enough? There's still hope
Men's satisfaction overall
Even if size is not everything, 45% of people asked about the size of their root are satisfied and 14% very satisfied. This is the conclusion of a study conducted by the medical teleconsultation site Zava. When asked what the average penis size would be in France, the men also answered 13.6 cm, which is 0.5 cm more than the average penis size in the world, as indicated by a study dating from 2015.
When it comes to perception, other Europeans are less shrewd. The prize goes to the Poles, who estimate that they have penis of 15.7 cm on average. Conversely, the British would rather be the type to minimize, estimating that their root have an average length of 12.4 cm.
Men's satisfaction by age
At the same time, the level of dissatisfaction seems to decline with age. 13.1% of men between 18 and 24 but only 7.7% of 45+ say they are dissatisfied with the size of their tool. And if 3% of 18-24 people consider themselves "very dissatisfied", this proportion falls to zero at 45 years old and over.
It is likely that young men are particularly exposed to misconceptions (cliches) and legends about the impact of penis size, while more experienced men will have been able to confront these ideas with reality and adjust their judgment.
