Are younger guys starting to have bigger penises these days?

In the past, practically everyone was "average" and there was a full range of sizes.  Even porn stars (with the exception of the occasional huge "freak" that got cast because of his penis, not his face or body....especially in straight porn) were in the average range (including the lower end), and there were a lot of bottoms with hot bodies that actually had small penises. Today, though, even with the vast variety of models offered by the explosion of internet porn, porn stars all seem to be large or at least in the upper range of average. What's more, young guys straight and gay are doing bathroom mirror self-pics and posting them online by the millions, and they all seem to be above-average in size.

Certainly, those with smaller endowments are less likely to display their wares to the world at large, but based on what's on the internet these days, are there any young guys with penises shorter than seven inches?

Now, I'm 50 years old, so "average" to me is about 5 to 6.5, inches, with most being 5.5 to 6. Also, I'm from a generation when guys used to shower together in open shower rooms, unlike the 20-somethings today who seem scared to take their pants off in public in front of other men and don't shower at the gym (or if they do, it's in a private stall), so I no longer have a large pool of the younger general male population to observe. However, being gay (duh), I still get the occasional opportunity to notice things from all age groups, although my sample pool of live, in-person, naked guys is probably 75% gay. Older guys continue to be "average" and have a full range of sizes. Younger guys seem to be surprisingly bigger and the smaller sizes are uncommon. In fact, in the past ten years, I've only had the opportunity to observe up close one younger guy who had a small penis. I've seen recent pictures and videos from my nephew's fraternity's annual pre-initiation pledge activities, and every single one of those pledges was above average in length. I've also seen his huge collection of self-pics sent to him by gay guys at his college looking to hook up, and they are all....impressive.

Now, I know I'm speaking in generalities here. I don't have any scientific data. The younger generation continues to have guys with all sizes of penises. It just seems to me that there has been a vast skewing of the average to considerably bigger sizes now.

1) Growth hormones given to cows and chickens in the food supply are causing kids to grow bigger penises.

2) Because of internet porn and more societal acceptance of gays, younger guys masturbated a whole lot more during their teenaged years, and that led to increased size.

3) Flaccid size has increased, but erect size remains the same.

4) More guys are "showwers" than "growers" these days (possibly because of #2, above?).

5) HIV killed off all the smaller guys (but this would only explain the gay population).

6) Gay guys are bigger now, but straight guys continue to be average with a full range of sizes.

Thoughts? Observations?  Discussion?

If anything, just #1.

PS- Masturbation has nothing to do with size. If it did, we'd all have 100 inch penises by now.

I've heard that in Arabic nomadic tribal culture, boys learn to masturbate with a technique that stretches their penises, and it's done religiously. Supposedly, this is why Arab guys are stereotypically large. I dunno...maybe this is just BS, but I've heard it from multiple sources.

This is the stupidest fucking thing I have ever read.

Do I even need to say how porn is not an accurate depiction of reality? I suppose you'd also like to know how condoms magically appear on guys dicks from one second to the other these days?

To try and give you a legit answer, consider the fact that back in "the day", getting into gay porn wasn't exactly an option for so many guys. Nowadays, with the internet, producers have a huuuuge selection of guys, and can whittle their choices down to dudes with big dongs. Not just some desperate California guys like in the 80s.

Nothing has changed. The porn industry is more popular and has a better selection of models now, and giant wangs have always looked better on camera.

Amateur pictures when you see them online are usually a result of self-selection - people with large dicks are more likely to be willing to show them off on the internet because society values a big dick.

What I find disturbing is your nephew feeling the urge to send you naked pictures of potential dates or fellow fraternity members. I can't imagine wanting to send, or be sent, naked pictures of people by any of my relatives.

Not only that, but when I've taken amateur pictures of myself, I've definitely fluffed myself up so that my peener is at the biggest flaccid state possible. It definitely doesn't look like that 95% of the time.

I totally agree with you with the fact that there is a better selection of models and people with bigger dicks want to show them off. I don't necessarily find picture sharing all that disturbing. I see some of my male relatives go into bars and check out boobs and ass of women together I don't think that is socially wrong, so why would two gay relatives doing basically the same thing be wrong?

I suspect that it's mainly just that above-average penises are more likely to be visible/available. Also, going by Internet pictures is not necessarily an accurate way of judging the matter, thanks to PhotoShop. Another thing is that males are increasingly expected to be thin/athletic; when guys are overweight, fat builds up on the pubic mound and "buries" part of the penis. So if these guys are mostly skinny, that could affect it as well.

You'd need to ask someone who is disinterested, honest, and not trying to score points... You wouldn't have gotten an honest answer from guys 30/40 years ago, any more than you would today, for all the same reasons.

If you know any older guys who run "drug stores" or wherever the hell younger guys go to buy condoms in the US of A, ask them whether demand for extra large / comfort fit / Hiho Silver! condoms has increased over the past 20 or more years.

I jacked off like a monkey when I was young...did nothing for my size. I'm supposing the answer is one.

The next study should be about the ratio differences between the size of dicks to I.Q numbers.
