Here's What Millennial Women Really Think About Penis Size

Cosmopolitan.com polled 1,100 people to find out if penis size matters to them.

Penis inadequacy is a real fear. Guys might not see it plastered across billboards as much as women have body image ideals foisted on them, but the pop culture zeitgeist certainly makes it known: bigger is better.

So, curious about how millennial women really felt about their partners' penises, Cosmopolitan.com polled 1,100 readers (96 percent women, 4 percent men; between the ages of 18 and 34). And just so we don't leave you hanging: 89 percent said they were not worried about their boyfriend's penis size, and, when asked how they'd classify their partner's penis, most of them (56 percent) went with "average." Another thirty-three percent thought their partner's penis was on the large side.

Interestingly, participants were pretty close when it came to what they considered and average penis size. (The current actual average sizes are 3.5 inches flaccid, and 5.1 inches erect.) Even though 43 percent of respondents saying they watch porn at least once a month, which can skew peoples' perceptions of penis size, they seem to be pretty realistic when it comes to IRL sex.

In the end, despite 59 percent of women reporting that they were less than satisfied in the bedroom, the vast majority said they wouldn't change anything about their boyfriend's penis. (A handful of participants noted that they would actually make his penis slightly smaller.) Maybe guys are finally getting the message that penetration isn't womens' greatest desire in bed, given that our survey found 62 percent of respondents rarely or never orgasm from penetration alone.

Basically, it seems like millennial women are just fine with whatever penis. Although he might not be porn-star-sized, penis beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Or the hand of the holder. Like, hand jobs. OK, have a great day.
