Hey Bears, researchers are saying the average penis size may be increasing!

Are you a Size Bear? If you are, then you may be happy to know that, according to researchers at Stanford Medical School, the average penis size is INCREASING! How’s that for some good news on a Blue Monday? 

The report, which was published on Valentine’s Day (fitting), says that there has been a 24% increase in the average length of an erect penis length over the past 29 years. But, as we know, every piece of good news comes with a piece of not-so-great news. 

Medical doctor and professor of urology Michael Eisenberg says that, though this trend of increasing penis size may seem good for some, he’s also a bit concerned about the declining sperm quality and testosterone levels. In a blog post, Professor Eisenberg said the study shows something powerful could be happening to our hormones.

“What we found was quite different from trends in other areas of male fertility and health. Erect penile length is getting longer, from an average of 4.8 inches to six inches, over the past 29 years,” Eisenberg said.

“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.”

So what is causing these changes? Eisenberg says chemicals and pesticides may be to blame. 

According to Eisenberg, chemicals from these sources could interrupt hormone levels found in our bodies. He suggests that exposure to the chemicals could cause children to go through puberty at younger ages, which eventually affects genital development.

So, it may be good news to some, but Professor Eisenberg doesn’t think we should ride off too fast into the sunset with it. 

“Just as we measure height and weight every year across the US, this is something else we could measure in a systematic fashion because it may turn out to be an early indicator of changes in human development,” Eisenberg said.

So, how do you feel about this particular… Development?

  • Yay, yet another reason for size queens to snub guys with smaller members

    • While you may be right, Mark, keep in mind many men like myself are perfectly happy with “smaller”, or as I call them, “normal” penises. Of course, “smaller” is in the eye of the beholder. I’m of the old fashioned belief that “Anything bigger than a mouthful is just a waste of dick” So keep your head up buddy, and ignore those who don’t appreciate you as you are. I’m an ex-model too, so don’t think this reply is coming from someone who can’t find a date, lol. As long as your penis works, you are awesome in my book. =)

  • Great article, but I’d like to point out there is no reliable method or authority to know what the average erect penile length is. If you google this, you will find answers all across the board. And why shouldn’t you? Nobody has ever measured erect penises in a systematic and timely way all around the globe. Mainly because this is a huge invasion of privacy and most men won’t participate in it. We have only relied on very small studies. And worst than that, on men filling out voluntary questionnaires where they tell you how big THEY think they are. Oh yea, that’s going to be We are all different. Different colors. Different shaped body parts. So it’s only logical to assume the same goes for penises. And for me, that’s a beautiful thing. I truly care more about a man’s heart and brain than how big his erect penis length is. And the most realistic sounding study on this I have read stated the average erect penis length is between 4 to 5 inches, which sounds true to me based on what I have seen in gym showers and personal experience. And I’m perfectly happy with that. =)
