Good news, normally-endowed men of the world! When it comes to penis size, bigger isn't always better! But it doesn't hurt to be slightly above average

Contrary to the reassuring catchphrase "size doesn't matter," penis size may matter in bed — but only for some women, and for certain types of orgasms. A new study finds that women who have frequent vaginal orgasms are more likely than other women to say they climax more easily with men with larger penises. Women who tend to prefer penile-vaginal intercourse over other types of sex also say the same, researchers reported online Sept.
A new study has revealed that women prefer a slightly larger penis in a one-time sexual partner compared to a long-term partner. In total, 75 women, ages 18 to 65, took part in the study. When asked to select the model which represented their preferred penis size in a long-term partner, the average response was 6.
A few months ago, I had a round of these conversations with the usual suspects in my life. Think of it as a dick Overton window: a continuum of acceptability, but in this case, one that varies from person to person. Boyfriend dicks have a measurable component, of course, but not a consistent one.

Writing in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences a journal commonly known by its initials as PNASBrian MautzBob WongRichard Peters and Michael Jennions use a clever experimental manipulation of computer-generated imagery - CGI - to test the effects of variation in penis size relative to height and torso shape shoulder width relative to waist width on the attractiveness of male bodies to women. While they found that torso shape was by far the most important determinant of attractiveness, penis size has about as much influence on attractiveness as height.
Conceived and designed the experiments: NP GM. Women recalled model size accurately using this method, although they made more errors with respect to penis length than circumference. These first estimates of erect penis size preferences using 3D models suggest women accurately recall size and prefer penises only slightly larger than average.
