6-Inch Dick: Big, Small, or Average?


Have questions about 6-inch penises? Is a 6 inch penis big? How many men have a 6-inch dick? What positions should you try in bed to make the most of your size? Read on to find the answers to all these questions and more.


Is a 6-Inch Penis Big?

Most studies that report on penis size are referring to erect penises. If you have a 6-inch dick, does that mean you’re above average? Yes, according to one of the largest studies on penis size, published in the British Journal of Urology International, the average erect penis is 5.16 inches long (and the average flaccid penis is 3.61 inches long).

A smaller study published in Medical News Today found similar results: the average erect penis length is between 5.1 inches and 5.6 inches. Another study published in Psychology Today determined that 68% of erect penises are between 4.6 and 6.0 inches long.

These results mean that a 6-inches penis is definitely larger than average. What percentage of men have a 6 inch dick? To figure that out, we can look at the percentile chart of the British Journal of Urology International study. A 6-inch long penis puts you at about the 85th percentile. This means that your penis is longer than 85% of other men’s penises, and less than 15% of men have a penis longer than 6 inches.


Sex Tips for a 6-Inch Dick

If you have a 6in penis, that means you’re above average in size, and you may want to try some tips specifically for well-endowed guys to make sure both you and your partner find sex fun and pleasurable. Below are four of the best tips for you to follow.

  • Talk to your partner about what you both want to try. Have a conversation with your partner to find out what you’re both comfortable with and interested in trying. This will ensure you’re both on the same page about what to expect and what you want to do in bed.
  • Use lube and foreplay. It can take time and arousal for many vaginas to stretch enough to accommodate a 6 inch dick. Lube and foreplay can help speed this process along. Include them both during sex to make it more enjoyable for you and your partner.
  • Try positions specifically for large penises.  Positions for larger penises help give your partner more control over the depth and speed of your penetration so they can avoid discomfort or injury. You can find lots of suggestions for positions to try online. Two articles to start with are these from Cosmopolitan and Bustle that give multiple positions guys with large penises may want to try out.
  • Try a cock ring. A wide cock ring placed around the base of a 6 inch penis can help limit how deeply you thrust into your partner, which can help if too-deep penetration is causing problems in your sex life.
