1-Inch Dick: Is It the Shortest Penis?


How short is the world’s shortest penis? Is a 1-inch dick the smallest penis ever recorded? Or are there penises shorter than this? We give you answers to these questions and more below. But first, does anyone actually have a 1-inch dick?

Does Anyone Actually Have a 1-Inch Dick?

First off, does anyone have a 1-inch penis? The answer is yes—and it’s not just one person, either.

According to a comprehensive study on penis size that was published in the British Journal of Urology International in 2015, less than 1 percent of men have erect penises under 3 inches long. This means that an erect 1-inch penis is extremely rare.

If we’re talking about flaccid penis size, a one-inch dick is still quite rare. The study found that the average flaccid length is 3.61 inches, with less than 1 percent of men having flaccid penises of 2 cm (0.79 inches) in length.

So how many people have 1-inch dicks, then? Unfortunately, we can’t give you an exact number. But we can tell you that certainly more than one person in the world has a 1-inch penis

One informal survey on a Weddingbee.com forum asked women for the smallest penises they’d encountered. The results found that 5 percent (40 votes) of women had seen a one-inch dick. Of course, surveys like these aren’t super reliable since we don’t know how accurate or true they are. But at the very least, it tells us that 1-inch penises, albeit rare, do exist.


1-Inch Dick: Is It the World’s Shortest Penis?

So is a one-inch dick the shortest member on record? As far as we know, no, it’s not. Since many people have penises around 1 inch long, we can’t just assume that this is the shortest length.

The main problem is the lack of an official record. At present, Guinness World Records does not have a category for shortest penis (nor does it have one for longest penis). So even if someone were to claim the title of world’s shortest penis, it’s possible someone else could have a smaller one.

The absence of an official record hasn’t stopped rumors, though. One claim contends that a Chinese man named Wei Lin has the shortest member in the world at 1 cm long (presumably erect, though sources are unclear). However, none of the websites I found mentioning this rumor could verify that this man even exists, so definitely take any articles like this with a grain of salt.

All in all, although an erect 1-inch penis is quite rare and far shorter than the average penis size, it is most likely not the shortest penis in the world!
