According to a new study done by the World Journal of Men’s Health, researchers have seen a growth in the average length of erect penises which they say is a cause for concern, Complex reported. 

After extensive analysis, researchers found that

“the average erect penis length has increased over the past three decades across the world.”

The trend was uncovered after researchers looked through numerous studies originally published from 1942 – 2021, eventually bringing forth

“penis-related data”

from over 55,000 men. Researchers studied different categories of length, including measurements of the

“flaccid” and “stretched”

variety and erect penises showed the most increase. 

According to the data,

“erect penis length has increased by 24 percent over the past 29 years when adjusted for region, age, and population.”

Stanford urologist Michael Eisenberg, MD believes this to be


“The increase happened over a relatively short period of time,”

Eisenberg brought up.

“Any overall change in development is concerning because our reproductive system is one of the most important pieces of human biology. If we’re seeing this fast of a change, it means that something powerful is happening to our bodies. We should try to confirm these findings and if confirmed, we must determine the cause of these changes,”

he explained.
