Question Girth?

Girth is the circumference of your penis, right? so that means that the width of your penis multiplied by 3.14 is the girth, right?
Just making sure.

What is the average girth of an adult male's penis?

Why do math, get a piece of cloth or string, wrap around your penis, and then check length on ruler. Or better just use a cloth measuring tape, like on for sewing.

I have heard the average girth is 3 to 4 inches.

Just wanted to add when you do this, measure where your penis is thickest around the shaft.

Average girth for an adult male is about 5 inches.

No, the 3.14 factor won't work, as the p_nis is not circular, it is more oval in cross section. As was suggested, use a piece of string or even a strip of paper.

A girth of 4.5 to 5 inches measured near the head is average, I believe. Men are typically a little thicker at the base.
