Penis size: straight versus gay

Data obtained by the Kinsey Report between 1938-1963 found that gay men reported their penis size as about a third of inch longer than that reported by straight men. This may suggest that gay men exagerate more, but also that hormones could be a contributing factor towards penis length and sexuality.

Biggest penis (animal)

The biggest penis of any animal, is that of the blue whale, with an average length of about 8 feet (2.4 m), and diameter of about 12-14inches (300-360 mm).

It's testicles weigh about 150-lbs (70Kg) each, leading to an estimate that its ejaculate is around 35 pints (20 litres).

Noisiest penis

The water boatman (Micronecta scholtzi) is not only the loudest animal on the planet for its size, but it makes its 99.2 decibels sound by rubbing its penis on its abdomen in a process known as "stridulation". Scientists discovered this ability in insects collected from a river in Paris. They write:

Smallest penis (human)

Sex researchers Masters and Johnson found that the smallest penis in their study was 6cm when flaccid, in a man 5-ft 11-in tall; the largest penis in their study was 14cm in a man 5-ft 7-in tall.

An unusually small penis is called a micropenis, and can be due to several medical conditions, and is typically less than 2.5cm. One of Alfred Kinsey's sex research team, Wardell Pomeroy, reports that the smallest penis they recorded was 1-inch long.

Biggest penis (bird)

Many birds do not have penises, and mate by touching genital openings -- called a "cloacal kiss". But some species of duck and ostriches do have a penis.

The longest bird penis discovered belongs to the Argentine lake duck (Oxyura vittata), measured at around 42.5cm, an astonishing dimension matches the length of an adult male, and compares to the length of an ostrich penis. If the Argentine lake duck were human, we could boast 5 - 6-foot penises!

Biggest penis collection

The biggest collection of animal penises is found at the Icelandic Phallological Museum in Reykjavik, Iceland. It features 280 specimens from 93 species of animals includes whales, seals, land mammals, and a human penis.

The Museum was founded in 1974 by Sigurdur Hjartarson (born 1941) after acquiring a pizzle (bull's penis).

Phallology is the name given to the scientific study of the penis.

Author and expert paper folder, Nick Robinson claims to have erected the world's biggest origami penis, standing at 10-feet 7-inches.

He made the monster member to promote his new book Adult Origami, which is perhaps inspired by erotic origami Master Sugoi, author of Pornogami: a guide to the ancient art of paper-folding for adults.

Biggest penis (fiction)

In his book, The New Male Sexuality, Bernie Zilbergeld wrote:

"Penises in fantasyland come in only three size: large, extra large, and so big you can't get them through the door. "Massive, "huge" and "enormous" are commonly mentioned in fiction". -- (Polonsky 1995)

Biggest penis (human)

Perhaps no other record is subject to as much wishful thinking, boasting and marketing hype, as men and their penises. American Jonah Falcon (born July 29, 1970) claims to have a 13½-inch (34cm) penis when erect, 8-inch (20cm) when flaccid (DM 2012).

Sex researchers Masters and Johnson found that the largest penis in their study was 14cm when flaccid in a man 5-ft 7-in tall, and the smallest penis was 6cm in a man 5-ft 11-in tall.

Biggest penis (apes and primates)

It is not the mighty gorilla as might be imagined, but mankind who has the largest average penis size of all the apes and primates. English zoologist and author Desmond Morris notes:
