Yes its totally normal. The erect penis is about twice the size of the placid penis.

When a penis is not erect; it is Flaccid.

Yes this is normal enough. The size when flaccid varies a lot and has not connection to the size when erect. Your real penis size is when your penis is erect. Read about "Penis Size" in Related Questions below.

3.5 inches flaccid and 5.0 to 6.0 erect.

The size of a guy's penis when flaccid is not a good indicator of the erect size. Even a penis that looks small when flaccid, can grow to be of very respectable size when erect. Conversely, men who have a penis that looks large when flaccid, generally don't see very much change in actual size when erect.

Well any size is normal but the average erect size is 5-6 inches for a adult.When flaccid (limp) the penis, depending on the ambient temperature and a lot of other factors can be anywhere from a couple of centimeters (one inch) long to the length that the erect penis attains.

sorry but that's not really normal, unless you mean flaccid then it close to average. i have heard about 2 inch flaccid and about 5 erect. if you mean 1 inch erect than you may have a problem.

On average, anywhere between 1-2 inches flaccid, and 2-4 erect.

The average erect penis length is 5.1-5.9 inches. It is important to measure the penis erect as the flaccid penis length is no indicator of the erect penis length.

Yes, the size of a flaccid penis does not correlate to the size of an erect penis. Also, overweight men tend to develop a "spare tire", or fat directly above the penis. This can cause a penis to look smaller than it is, especially a flaccid organ.

The average size of a male penis is 5.5 inches when erect and 3 inches when flaccid so you are perfectly normal.

It depends if your penis is erect of flaccid. A 3 inch flaccid penis is average, however a 3 inch erect penis is slightly below average for a 14 year old. We cannot say what size it will be when you're 21, as penis' develop at different rates.

The penis' tissues fill with blood to cause it to become erect, the opposite of flaccid. Flaccid describes an unengorged penis, that hangs limply as normal. Flaccid is an adjective and out of the men's sexual health section, it might refer to any unhardened object or substance?

When you say 5 inches, is that erect or flaccid? If erect, thats the average size for 17 year olds. If flaccid, that's the average size for an adult man. Either way, that's completely normal.

That depends on whether you are measuring your penis while it is flaccid or erect. A flaccid penis would be about 3 inches normally. An erect penis is usually 4-6 inches.

Yes, your penis would turn flaccid because a man's erect penis is mostly blood.

I would say that a 2.7 inch long erect penis was probably towards the larger end of average lengths for an 11 year old. Flaccid penis measurements are very unreliable as changes in temperature and emotional state can effect the length of a flaccid penis. You must have noticed that your flaccid penis is longer when you get out of a hot bath or shower than it is on a cold winters day.

Yes, no need to worry you are very normal. The fact is that anywhere from 5-7 inches can be normal for penis size. Don't worry about flaccid size it does not matter. Remember it truly is not that size that matters. As you get older you will realize its not that important. Thanks, JM

If you measured you penis during the flaccid state, then that is a "good size". However if you measured it during the erect state, then it is below the average penis size. (Average penis sized: 5.5 - 6.25 inches)

A "Shower" is a man who has a large flaccid penis, which stays around the same size when erect. A "Grower" is a men whose flaccid penis is small, but becomes much larger when erect. You can see an example of a grower at

This can vary greatly depending on the person. Some would describe this as are you a grower or a show-er. A "grower" may increase by anywhere from 30% to more than doubling in size from the non-erect size. For example my 3" flaccid penis grows to over 8" when erect. A show-er will only grow slightly longer if at all from their flaccid penis size. In effect their penis is always the same size if they have an erection or not so they are always "showing" there erect size. The penis will get stiffer and possibly larger in girth when erect.

Assuming you are speaking of the length when erect, yes it is. If you are speaking of the flaccid length, then you are substantially above average.

Yes. Don't even bother about flaccid measurements because they vary depending on the temperature and your emotional state. At 13 years of age a 4 inch erect penis would be towards the longer end of average lengths.

It gets erect when the person is sexually excited. It stays erect until the person is no longer sexually excited then returns to it's normal flaccid state. The penis erects for sexual intercourse with another person or for masturbation. It is not a requirement for either of these things to happen because of the penis erecting though.

No, you can't tell the size of an erect penis by looking at it when it is flaccid.
