“It’s not the size, mate, it’s how you use it.”
Despite Nigel Powers’ nonchalant approach to size in 2002’s Austin Powers in Goldmember, many men are concerned about the length and girth of their reproductive organ. While most conversations around penis size focus on length, girth is just as important and varies just as greatly from one man to the next.
The toilet paper girth test is something of an urban legend — a test designed to tell you whether or not your penis is of average girth. In this article, I’ll talk about what the toilet paper roll girth test actually is, how it compares to average penis girth (as measured by actual scientific studies), and what the toiler paper girth test means for.
What’s the Toiler Paper Roll Girth Test?
The toilet paper roll girth test is a test designed to gauge whether or not your penis is of average girth. According to the mythos of the test, the toilet paper roll circumference is the girth of an average penis. If your penis fits just right into the toilet paper roll, it’s of average girth. If your penis fits loosely into the toilet paper roll, it’s of below average girth. If it can’t fit into the toilet paper roll, your penis is of above average girth.
How Does Toilet Paper Roll Circumference Compare to Average Penis Girth?
The toilet paper roll girth test is just an urban legend, and scientific study proves that.
According to the British Journal of Urology International, the average girth of a flaccid penis is 3.66 inches and the average girth of an erect penis is 4.59 inches. While toilet paper rolls, just like penises, vary in girth, the average girth of a standard toilet paper roll in the United States is 5.5 inches.
So, the average penis, whether flaccid or erect, is smaller in circumference than the average toilet paper roll, meaning that most men wouldn’t have a problem sticking their penis through a toilet paper roll, if they so choose.
What Does the Toilet Paper Girth Test Mean for You?
As I discussed in the previous section, the average toilet paper roll girth is greater than the average penis girth, so if your penis fits comfortably into that toilet paper roll, don’t worry. You’re by no means below average.
Ultimately, every man’s (and woman’s) body is totally different. There’s no such thing as a penis that’s too small or too big, or too crooked or too straight, for that matter. Your body is uniquely designed to fit you.
Nigel Powers had a point when he cheekily told Austin not to worry about size. Every man’s penis size is different and, according to the British Journal of Urology International, most of them are less girthy than a toilet paper roll.
Ultimately, the toilet paper girth test is a fun urban legend to participate in, if you’d like, but don’t take it too seriously — it doesn’t actually say anything important about your penis or its size.
