Like many men, I have spent a great deal of time worried about my penis size. Penis size is an obvious sign of masculinity and porn has really distorted our perception of penis size. This leaves many men wondering, “Is 6 inches big?”
A 6 inch penis is larger than the average penis. A six inch penis would not be considered big as it would be in the upper average range. Most studies indicate that 6 inches are enough to satisfy most sexual partners though many would prefer a larger penis.
So let’s take a look at all the data behind answering “Is 6 inches big?” We will look at the average size studies, the studies on women’s preferences, women’s satisfaction with a 6 inch penis, a six inch penis & pregnancy, and what you can do to make your penis appear larger.

Is 6 Inches Big? The Average Data Source
If you ask, “Is 6 inches big?” A lot of people will say that a 6 inch penis is average. However, this does not match up with the actual data on the average penis size. The actual data indicates that a six inch penis is a little above normal.
The most comprehensive study on erect penis length was titled Am I normal? A systematic review and construction of nomograms for flaccid and erect penis length and circumference in up to 15 521 men. We are using this study to answer “Is six inches big?”
This study was reported in the British Journal of Urology International and is considered by most to be the gold standard of erect penis length statistics. This paper combined the information from multiple studies that involved the measurement of over 15,000 men.
All measurements that were included in the study were taken by medical professionals. Why is that important? Well, some of the studies that report longer average penis lengths rely on men measuring their own penis. Guess what, sometimes guys lie about their penis size (shocker).
All measurements were taken as bone-pressed measurements (this is the right way to measure the penis). To take this measurement, place a ruler along the top side of your penis. Firmly push the ruler against the pubic bone at the base of the penis compressing the fat there.
Penis length will be the measurement at the tip of the glans. Do not measure underneath the penis, along the side, up from your ankle, or anything crazy like that.
The findings of this study were that the average erect penis was 5.16″ long. So a 6 inch penis would be 16.3% longer than the average penis.
Additionally, 95 percent of men fall in the 3.9″ to 6.5″ range so a 6 inch penis is in the upper end of the normal range. According to the study data, a six inch penis would be bigger than what 90% of men are packing.
Is Six Inches Big When Compared to What Women Want?
Another way to answer the question “Is six inches big?” is to compare the 6 inch penis size to the penis size that women want in a sexual partner. The answer in this section is not quite as rosy for the 6 inch penis.
The 6 inch erect penis is slightly shorter than the average 6.4-inch penis size that women said they preferred. The 6 inch penis would be 6.25% shorter than what women prefer for a penis length in a sexual partner.
The basis for these statistics is the Women’s Preferences for Penis Size: A New Research Method Using Selection among 3D Models study completed by researchers from the University of California and the University of New Mexico.
In this study, women were presented with 33 3d models of different sizes representing the penis size of potential partners. They were asked to select the model that best reflected their penis size preference in both a one-time sexual partner and a long-term sexual partner.
The average model selected for the one-time sexual partner was 6.4″ long and for long-term sexual partners, it was 6.3″ long. Another interesting fact was that 20% of the women in the study said that they had left a partner because his penis was too small.
Is 6 Inches Big Enough To Satisfy A Woman?
This question is a lot more nuanced than some of the other questions. The basic answer is that 6 inches are big enough to satisfy most women but not all.
First of all, women really do not place as much emphasis on penis size as men might think they do. If you are somewhere near the average, you are likely to find six inches enough to satisfy a woman.
If you asked women to choose between a Brad Pitt look-alike with a 6 inch penis and a Ron Jeremy look-alike with a huge penis, over 90% are going to pick the Brad Pitt look-alike. Throw in the attraction of personality, humor, career, and money and you will find penis size way down on the list.
You can satisfy women in a lot of ways other than shoving a huge penis in them. That being said if you go by the studies, women would prefer the Brad Pitt look-alike with the 6.4″ penis over the one with the 6 inch penis.
Also, do not forget the study showing that 20% of women left a partner because their penis was too small. So while penis size is not the whole story of satisfying a woman, it does play a part in at least some of them.
Most women will find six inches enough to satisfy them but many will be wanting more.
Is 6 Inches Enough To Get A Woman Pregnant?
Is 6 inches enough to get a woman pregnant? Yes, a 6 inch erect penis is more than long enough to get a woman pregnant.
According to the experts, the quality of the sperm has the most to do with your chances of getting someone pregnant and the size of the penis has nothing to do with it. According to a Health article, you can get a woman pregnant even if you have a micropenis (under 2.8 inches).
What To Do If 6 Inches Is Not Enough For You? Make It Bigger
So what do you do if a 6 inch penis is not enough for you? The good news is that there are some things that you can do about it.
- Work on your erection quality. The more firm and full your erections are the larger your penis will appear and feel. Additionally, ED may shorten your penis over time (source). I strongly recommend that you check out our article on the Phoenix device. This FDA-registered acoustic wave device treats the root cause of poor erection quality and does not just mask it like prescription pills or injections.
- Lose some weight. That fat pad at the base of your penis makes it look much smaller. It is said that your penis will appear 1 inch longer for every 20-30 pounds you lose.
- Trim it up. Trim your pubic hair to make your penis appear bigger. The tree looks bigger when the grass is shorter.
- Actually, make your penis longer. It is not easy but penis traction devices are the only scientifically proven way to actually make your penis longer. These devices are even necessary to make penis enlargement surgery work. I have used these devices and had phenomenal results.
