Got a 2-inch dick? Then you might be curious about how your member stacks up against the average penis size. Is a 2-inch penis small? Is it average? In this article, we explain how this size compares with other penises, and offer tips on how to use a 2-inch penis effectively in bed.
How Big Is a 2-Inch Dick Compared With the Average?
When hard, is a 2-inch penis small? To answer this question, we’ll look at one of the most comprehensive studies on penis size ever conducted.
According to this study, which was published in 2015 in the British Journal of Urology International, the average length of an erect penis is 5.16 inches, and the average length of a flaccid penis is 3.61 inches. Since 2 is smaller than both of these numbers, it’s clearly a below-average length for a penis (erect or flaccid).
But how small is a 2-inch dick exactly? The study’s percentile chart indicates that an erect 2-inch (5.1-cm) penis falls below the 1st percentile—meaning that more than 99 percent of men get erections bigger than 2 inches. Thus, we can conclude that a 2-inch penis is overall fairly small.
Is a 2-Inch Penis a Micropenis?
A 2-inch dick is indeed on the smaller end of the scale—but does it fall into micropenis territory? The answer is generally yes.
Science defines a micropenis as a normal-functioning penis that’s 2.5 standard deviations or more below the mean penis length.
If we apply this definition to the study above, we find that a 2-inch dick counts as a micropenis. In this study, 2.5 standard deviations below the average stretched flaccid length (which is similar to erect length) is 3.35 inches (8.5 cm)—that’s more than an inch longer than 2.
However, the definition of a micropenis is somewhat flexible. Some sources define it as any penis less than 3 inches in length, or any penis length equal to or less than 2.8 or 2 inches. As you can see, though, most of the time a 2-inch penis will match the description for a micropenis.
How to Have a Great Sex Life With a 2-Inch Dick
If you’ve got a 2-inch penis, don’t feel bad—there’s nothing wrong with you, and there certainly doesn’t have to be anything wrong with your sex life, either!
That said, it can be difficult to figure out how to use a small penis effectively in bed. Here are some tips to help you out:
- Talk openly with your partner about your sex life: Communication allows you and your partner to clearly express your wants to each other, and encourages a fun and mutually satisfying sex life.
- Use positions better suited for a small penis: You can’t expect all sex positions to work well for your size, so find and master those that consistently bring both you and your partner pleasure. For tips, check out this article by Bustle and this one by Refinery29.
- Don’t make penetrative sex the main event: Sex is fun, sure, but it’s not the only way to feel satisfied. Lengthen foreplay and read up on oral sex techniques to wow your partner in a way that doesn’t necessarily involve your penis.
- Consider trying anal sex: Got a female partner? Then see whether she’s open to trying anal sex. This position can be great for both parties, giving her a fuller sensation and you a tighter one.
Ultimately, if you’re ever feeling down, remind yourself that it’s not about the size of your penis—it’s about your confidence, adventurousness, and willingness to communicate!
