I’ve always been highly skeptical about statistics and how the numbers are so easily manipulated to suit whatever parameters the publisher of them desires.  So I sit here today in January enjoying a little Sunday quiet time catching up on my reading.  I purchased a book recently that uses the term “Number Freaking”.  I love the term and as I began to scan through the book I knew almost immediately this book would forever remain in my personal library.  It’s funny in part but also not so funny because it verifies most of my fears about statistics.  Crunch the numbers until they say what you want them to say.  Ask any politician.

I really don’t want to go negative today.  I think we all need a good laugh when we can get one and I’ll supply you with one free of charge this morning.  The following statistics are humorous and as always here on this blog, gender neutral. I’ve listed one for the ladies and a second one for the men.

In 1988 Paul L. Jamison and Paul H. Gebhard published an analysis in the Journal for Sex Research of the data collected by Kinsey on penis size. Here is some  good or bad news depending on who you are.  These numbers are averages measured in  inches.

Flaccid Length – 3.89

Flaccid circumference – 3.75

Erect Length – 6.21

Erect Circumference – 4.85

Erectile increase in length – 2.30

Erectile increase in circumference (girth) – 1.11Average erectile angle – 15 degrees above the horizon

Average erect diameter – 1.24

Average time to achieve an erection – 3-8 seconds

Women in Kinsey’s studies also stated that on average they took just under four minutes to achieve orgasm while masturbating.  With a partner it took them between ten and twenty minutes.

How are you guys measuring up so far?  Some good, some bad, and some OMG, “Help me Lord”.  Now to the next step. These are stats on length of erection by age and minutes.

16-20 – 12.00

21-25 – 42.88

26-30 – 53.09

31-35 – 47.24

36-40 – 40.62

41-45 – 31.07

46-50 – 29.02

51-55 – 21.62

56-60 – 26.67

61-65 – 19.50

66-70 – 07.00

71-?? – 00.00

While these stats are averages, I might  have to take some issue with them but really, what do I know? These are the facts man!   Let’s move on to more statistics which may be of interest to the men out there.

The concentration of human sperm has fallen 29% recently,  from 87 million in a milliliter to just over 62 million. Twenty million sperm a milliliter is the lower limit of normal. At orgasm  a man produces around 250 million sperm.

The Penguin Atlas of Human Sexual Behavior claims intercourse takes place, worldwide, 120 million times per day. Assuming an average of one male per coupling and one orgasm per male, the men are producing 300 million billion or 30 quadrillion sperm a day.  That would come to (no pun please, this is serious stuff) 90, 000 sperm per minute, or 130 million sperm a day.

Man, that’s a whole lot of sperm.  I’m sure these stats are telling us all a few useless bits of information we didn’t know before but so what.  As I said at the start you can make of them what you will.  Just another pile of useless information from the blog that’s full of it.

Have a wonderful sperm filled day.
