Apparently a lot of French men get penile implants. So many, in fact, that the National Academy of Surgery (NAS) in Paris, France —established by Louis XV in 1731 —began to get a little worried. Do they have a country full of men who are ashamed of what they're sporting between their thighs? It seems statistics suggest that they do. Come on, fellas. It can't be all that bad!
So in an attempt to slow the rapidly increasing rate of plastic surgery for men, the NAS published a study on the average size of French penises. It would seem the average French penis is 3.7 inches flaccid and about 5 - 5.5 inches erect. See, boys? You're about average! Wikipedia says the consensus is that average adult penis length is 5.1 - 5.9 inches erect.
“The feeling of having an insufficiently large penis can be a source of anxiety and psychological suffering for a man,” the institution said in a statement. Don't we know it.
But fellas, they say implants just aren't the answer. Turns out they can cause way more harm than good. All sorts of damage can be done to the penis's ability to take a stand during the surgery. Now that would be a damn shame.
