First of all, I wish to get a few things out of the way because it is one of those billion-times-asked questions that I want an answer on.

1. Its a penis size question.

2. Trolls, I guarantee I am or have people more powerful than you. Go away.

3. Scientific backing / studies evidence would be much appreciated.

3b. I suffer from paranoia as well, that is the reason for this..


ON TO THE QUESTION!

If you have made it this far without a tl;dr or a back and move on, yay, you can help me.

So, my girlfriend's brother leaked to me his penis size very triumphantly along an unrestricted channel and that got me thinking "huh I wonder what i am"

and so i measure.

Just over 4" and im 14 years old.

My girlfriends brother is about 2.5 times my size and the same age.

RED FLAG, LOCKDOWN PARANOIA.

Will it still grow?

Am I normal?

My girlfriend is 2 years older than me and her brother, trying to get back at me for whatever-the-hell decided to tell me about the time she was sexually active with someone who was almost 10".

I feel indaquate and highly nervous.

I need some answers with scientific backing.

Someone help me!!

-Lexington.

Welcoem to Scarleteen, Arthur!

I have good news for you: you are completely normal. You are in the middle of puberty still, and your penis likely will continue to grow. Even if it were to stop right there, though, you'd be completely average in size: the average penis is about 5-6 inches when erect.

That aside, penis size also has zero implications on your ability to be a good lover or boyfriend.

(And also: because lots of people make such a Huge Deal out of penis size, you'll also not always want to trust someone who tells you they have the biggest penis ever. It's entirely likely they feel inadequate, themselves, and are trying to cover up.)

Here's a couple of articles that may also help you:

Thanks for the answer along with the scientific backings, I'm pretty sure you guys get quite a bit of these penis size questions, I really just needed an impartial audience, and while I cant be sure what he said was true unless I recieve confirmation on it, but my 'size' has given me alot a grief in the past in conjunction with my paranoia, and being with a sexually active girlfriend when I myself am not brings alot more paranoia into play than before.

Also, this link covers a ton of these questions, in depth, with stats, all in one fell swoop: Shown Actual Size: A Penis Shape & Size Lowdown

Also, a tip? If and when someone has had a few sexual partners, they usually know MORE about the diversity of bodies rather than less. In other words, your girlfriend, if she has seen a few penises, probably has more of a sense of the range of them than you do, so that can be less reason to worry instead of more. [Smile]

Also, if she herself doesn't have a penis, she probably could care less about penis size, anyway. It's most often people with penises who care about that, not people without them.

Ha! Dat answer!.

Still thanks infinitely for the scientific backup for your answers, again its just to quell my paranoia, there have been very few fights between the two of us over that (More has ocurred over who has next on Halo) but again, its a trademark question for guys and I feel like a total Noob (Gamer term) for asking, but I needed the help when nobody else could.
