“How Big Is Too Big? When Is Too Much, Too Much?” by T. Hasan Johnson, Ph.D.

What size is the average penis? What about height, income, or degrees attained?

Was telling a boy of mine some information he and I fell out laughing about. He was telling me about how women he talked to told him they wanted a man with a 12-inch penis, a 6-figure income, a college degree, and to be over 6’2. (We didn’t discuss what he didn’t have.) I told him that only 3.9% of the male human population are over 6’2, around 10% of Black folk earn over $89K/yr. (by household before taxes–and only 5% make more than $112K), half of us have gotten degrees as Black women since 1976 (and there has not been a year where Black men have gotten more degrees than Black women), and according to a 2014 study, the “Average size for an erect penis is 14.2 cm (5.6 inches).”

People, we need realistic expectations. Some of us may exceed certain expectations (ahem), but MOST of us don’t exceed just these three. Let alone, when we add more, the list gets even smaller. 😂
