High body mass index and weight gain linked to reduced penile length

  • Researchers assessed the erected and non-erected penis size in Italian men.
  • Number of individuals: 4685 Italian men
  • Time range: January 2019 to January 2000
  • Erect lengths and circumferences were measured in both erected and non-erected states.
  • They measured from the lower base to the distal penile tip.
  • Mean non-erected penis length: 9.47 cm
  • Mean non-erected penis circumference: 9.59 cm
  • Mean erected penis length: 16.78 cm
  • Mean erected penis circumference: 12.03 cm
  • Linear analysis revealed that height is associated with penis length and erected penis circumference.
  • High body mass index is associated with reduced erected penis length.
  • Weight gain is also associated with the reduction of non-erected penis length.
