Penis Length: Showers and Growers

For the sake of the study, growers’ penises lengthened at least 4 centimeters when erect. Showers’ penises lengthened less than 4 centimeters.

With an average length change of 3.1 centimeters, the majority of the men – 74% - were classified as showers. About 26% were growers, with an average length change of 5.3 centimeters.

Growers were an average of 8 years younger than showers, too. However, a man’s penis changes as he gets older, so that might be the reason for the age difference, the study authors said.

For many men, penis size reflects their masculine identity, but they shouldn’t worry about which category they fall into. Penis size is subjective, and partners often aren’t concerned. (Read more about penis length and partner satisfaction here.)
