Just about every guy wonders how he measures up "down-there. There is a wide range of normal penis sizes. Although you may see guys with penises that are bigger or smaller than yours, it is very likely that your penis is a normal size. Penis size is determined by your genes , just like eye color or foot size. And there's a lot less difference in penis size between guys when they get an erection than when their penises are relaxed.
