Penis sizes are confusing. Porn would have us all believe that everyone is supposed to be hung like a horse, but time in the locker room shows that not everyone walks around with 7 inches (17.78 cm).
So, what is the perfect size and ideal length? And is 6.5 inches (16.51 cm) good enough to satisfy a woman?
We will answer all your questions in the article and tell you how to get the most out of your 6.5 inches in the bedroom.

How Big Is the Average Penis?
The average penis is a lot smaller than you would think! When surveyed, men and women tended to overestimate the average size of an erect penis.
It turns out, on average, the average length is 5.16 inches (13.11 cm) when erect and 3.61 inches (9.17 cm) when flaccid. Now let’s talk about girth.
Girth is the circumference or thickness, which, by some accounts, matters more than the length of the penis — a topic we will discuss further down! On average, the girth of a penis is 3.66 inches (9.3 cm) when flaccid and 4.59 inches (11.66 cm) when erect.
Therefore, if you’re above 5.16 inches (13.11 cm), you are above average, and if you are 6.5 inches (16.51 cm) when erect, you’re well above average.
Is a 6.5 Inch Penis Normal?
Penises come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and 6.5 is well within a normal range for a human male. Out of one study on human penis size, the smallest penis was 1.6 inches (4.06 cm), and the longest was 10.2 inches (25.91 cm) when erect. Although 6.5 might be above average, it’s not unusual to be that size, and you’re completely normal.

Is 6.5 Inches Too Big?
A 6.5 inch (16.51 cm) penis is not too big or too small. Let’s crunch some numbers and find out what women and men want when it comes to below the belt.
One study found that women preferred a 6.3-inch penis with a girth of 4.8-inch.
Another study concluded roughly the same: women want a 6.2-inch (15.75 cm) penis. Interestingly, men tended to prefer a larger penis that measured 6.5 inches (16.51 cm) when erect.
Therefore, a 6.5-inch penis is far from too big and is ideal for many men and women.
Is 6.5 Inches Too Small?
Although men reported wanting a penis closer to 7 inches (17.78 cm), women seem satisfied with one roughly 6 inches (15.24 cm).
More importantly, there are only a few countries on Earth where a 6 inch penis and above seems to be the standard, not the exception.
Ultimately, whether you are too small for your partner is their decision. Every person has unique desires and kinks. Perhaps your partner dreams of 7 inches flying towards their face and won’t stop until they get it. Or perhaps your partner doesn’t care too much about the size of your penis, which seems to be the case for most couples.
Does Size Matter to Women?
This is a complicated question because, to most women, size is less important than a man’s other attributes. However, we would be lying if we said that not a single woman cared about the size of her boyfriend below the waist.
71% of women in this study said that penis size was only somewhat important, and 21.4% said it did not matter. In a different study, some women reported ending a relationship because the size of their partner was too small, and a few reported a smaller penis was a hindrance to the relationship’s success and their sex life.
It’s also essential to note that there seems to be a difference between relationships and hookup expectations. Women seemed to care less about the size of their sexual partners if they were in a relationship with them and more if they were just a one-night stand or casual hookup.
But don’t feel bad and toss in the towel because a few select women decided that penis size could make or break the relationship.
You’re above average length at 6.5 inches (16.51 cm) and likely to not cause too much disappointment in the bedroom. If, by chance, you come across a woman who wants a little more, keep looking for someone else because plenty of women would be satisfied with 6.5 inches (16.51 cm).
How to Get the Most of Your 6.5 Inch Penis in Bed
Some positions are better than others for maximizing sexual pleasure when working with an above-average or below-average penis size.
Whether you’re below average or above it, choosing the correct sex positions can help you better hit your partner’s spots, such as her G Spot, A Spot, or D Spot, and help her reach mind-blowing orgasms.
Let’s talk vaginal sex first. The average length of a vagina is 4.25 inches (10.79 cm) to 4.75 inches (12.06 cm), whereas not aroused, it is around 3 inches (7.62 cm).
The vagina is elastic and can stretch to accommodate girth, but unfortunately, the vagina is not an endless tunnel. With 6.5 inches (16.51 cm), it’s unlikely that you can fit the entire length inside some partners.
Furthermore, some women experience vaginal pain from conditions such as vaginismus or are uncomfortable with the challenge of an above-average penis. Therefore, try sex positions that allow your partner to control the depth and pace.
Beginner-friendly sex positions are cowgirl and reverse cowgirl, where your partner sits on top and grinds or bounces on you. Less obvious sex positions that you must try are side straddle and sofa straddle, where your partner wraps their legs around your waist and rides on top.
What about anal sex? Pick a sex position that allows your partner to control penetration depth. As discussed, you’re above average size, and some may be intimidated by trying to fit that many inches in the backdoor.
But don’t jump the gun just yet! Take your time warming up your partner with anal play, rimming, and sex toys before trying to fit your 6.5 inches (16.51 cm) penis inside her. The anal canal does not lube itself up the way the vagina does, so rip out a bottle of lube, pour a lot on yourself and her, and take your time.
Try doggy style, but instead of thrusting into your partner, allow them to back into you and control the pace and depth of penetration.
But don’t forget that penetration isn’t everything!
Your partner might enjoy your penis size, but she will probably get equal or more pleasure from other sexual activities, such as oral sex. Not every man is a professional when it comes to satisfying his partner with his tongue.
If you’re 6.5 inches (16.51 cm), you are above the global average and fit perfectly in the range of desirable penis lengths, as the average erect penis size is 5.16 inches (13.11 cm).
Ultimately, most women would be happy with your penis length. However, multiple studies and surveys point out that size is not as important as some people want to believe.
Your size is not as important as other factors and will not determine the relationship’s success or failure.
