What flaccid penis size is considered hung?  The way I see it, any penis larger than mine is huge!

And I’m going to stick by that definition until the day I die. 

But seriously, folks. 

What constitutes a large, medium, or small penis has many definitions.  That’s even more true when the penis in question is flaccid.

So, gents. Are you ready for a deep dive into how big is big enough, how big is too big, and how much you should care in the first place?

Good. Let’s get to it… 

What Flaccid Penis Size is Considered Hung: Just the Facts

A study published in the British Journal of Urology reviewed much of the existing literature on the topic (source).

In total they collated data from 17 studies measuring 15,521 men. 

According to their findings, the average flaccid hanging penis was 3.61 inches long. The average flaccid penis while stretched was 5.16 inches long. 

Okay, you say. That’s great. But you didn’t ask about average. You asked about “hung.”

That’s a subjective term. 

There’s no medical definition of “hung” but let’s say if you’re in the top 25 percent of men for penis size, you qualify. 

The study found the 75th percentile measured in at 3.94 inches hanging, 6 inches stretched. So you might consider yourself hung if you measure up to that or greater. 

For the second source, we’re taking it to the street. By which I mean an internet forum. Who better to ask about what’s hung and what’s not than men engaged in penis enlargement?

The guys over at Thundersplace Forum participated in a poll about what the flaccid length (in this case hanging length) requirement was for being “hung.” 

Here’s what they found:

  • 922 men responded.
  • 271 said 5 inches or longer was hung (29.49%)
  • 473 said 6 inches or longer was hung (51.30%)
  • 114 said 7 inches qualified as hung (12.36%)
  • 64 insisted you had to be over seven inches limp to be hung. 

I’m pretty sure those last 64 guys were trolls or some kind of mutant whose special power is having a large penis. Seven inches is of erect penis is nothing to be ashamed of. 

Anyway, the numbers give us a range of anywhere between 5 ¼ inches of flaccid penis to 6 inches of flaccid penis for a reasonable length to be considered “hung.” 

What Flaccid Penis Size is Considered Hung: Other Factors

Just the raw size of your flaccid junk isn’t the only thing you need to consider when wondering if you’re hung. 

Although the study was conducted for erect penises, a Canadian research team determined that there was a 3.3-inch difference in average penis size between the best-endowed men in the world (Congo) and the worst (North Korea). 

Considering the average flaccid penis is 3.6 inches long, that’s almost a whole penis worth of difference. So if the men in your family don’t come packaged with a giant package, maybe cut yourself some slack. 

Similarly, you have your grower vs. shower problem. 

Some men with a small flaccid penis grow to three or four times their size when fully aroused. Other men might not add much length at all, their members simply getting thicker and harder. 

Then you get into the size of your penis compared to the size of your body. Five inches on a jockey looks like a lot more meat than the same five inches on a linebacker. Is the jockey more hung?

As a final note here, keep in mind that study after study has shown that women don’t actually go for “hung” men as a general rule. They prefer men who are average, or just above average. 

Really huge penises hurt the women they go inside of, so those dudes who were suggesting you had to be 7 or more inches long limp to be a real man…well…

…let’s just say I don’t think they’ve spent a lot of time asking women about this subject. 

What Flaccid Penis Size is Considered Hung: Conclusion

I was joking when I said a large penis is any penis slightly smaller than my own. But I wasn’t joking entirely. 

The physical length of your penis is only one factor in whether you leave girls impressed in the bedroom. 

There are visual elements like lighting, how big your gut is, and how much pubic hair you have. 

There are tactile elements like how wet she is, how attentive you are during foreplay, and how good you’ve got “the motion in her ocean.”

There are emotional elements like how into you she is, your confidence level and your overall mood going into the sexual encounter. 

Bottom line: if you’re happy with the size of your member, enough of these other things will fall in line for her to walk away feeling like you’re packing plenty of pickle. 

If you’re not happy with your size, it can have the opposite effect even if objectively, you’re doing just fine. Doing exercises to grow your junk until you’re proud of it might be just the thing you need. 

So: when you’re asking if your size qualifies as “hung” you can use the numbers I gave you earlier to find one possible answer. But really, you should ask some better questions. Questions like:

  • How does my package compare to other men of my size and genetic makeup?
  • How important is the size of my penis to my sexual partner?
  • How happy am I with the size of my penis?

Once you’ve nailed down these questions…

As opposed to how you compare to an arbitrary definition of a flexible concept, you’ll be ready to decide whether or not you want to commit to the time and effort to a penis enlargement program.
