- Erect Gallery (Soft
In the pages of this gallery we display photos in pairs that show the penis while it is flaccid (soft) and while it is erect (hard). A number of visitors have asked for this comparison. Some have written that they are more satisfied with the appearance of their erect length than with their flaccid appearance. One visitor said that, when soft, his penis just shrinks down to a very disappointing size.
Well, let's talk about the relationship of flaccid to erect size! First, you should know flaccid size probably has even greater variation than erect size! This possibility was recognized by Masters and Johnson in 1966. It was verified in a re-analysis of the Kinsey data published by Jamison and Gebhard in 1988. And the 1996 article by Wessells, Lue, and McAninch concludes that "Erectile increase in length demonstrated no predictable relationship with flaccid penile length." This means that they found that both short and long penises, when getting erect, gain about the same amount of absolute length. To me this seems to be another way of saying that, on average, shorter flaccid penises have a greater percentage of growth than do longer flaccid penises. In my opinion, the research is not absolutely conclusive on this point, but it certainly suggests that this phenomenon is likely to be real.
The slang terms "growers" and "showers" are not based on research but are popular culture words that come from the everyday experiences of men. These words imply that a grower is someone whose flaccid penis is not very large but grows quite a bit as it becomes erect. And a shower is someone whose penis shows a good bit of length when flaccid and gains proportionally less length as it becomes erect. The absolute amount each of these types gain may be equal -- but the effect is more dramatic for the grower because he started with less length. (We should acknowledge that for every general principle there are exceptions. In this case, the exceptions mean that there may be short flaccid penises that gain only slightly and long flaccid penises that gain quite a lot -- and everything inbetween.)
Please click here to send in your pairs of pictures for this gallery! Make sure the flaccid picture is of a completely soft state. As in the other galleries please keep the background plain and uncluttered. Also send age, height, weight, erect and flaccid length. (For further instructions click here.) It will be interesting to see how penises of different soft sizes look when they are erect - and whether or not we will have any examples that clearly illustrate the research findings or the popular culture concepts mentioned in the paragraphs above.

I have always been
told that I had a large penis, but never thought that it was all that
large. I always thought I was average, but I guess most of those comments
came from my width (5.5 in. around). I hope you include the pics, I'm
proud of my cock, not afraid to show it off. You have a great website.
I hope I can help make it better. [submitted later] Ive seen one other
cockring on your site, so I thought I would add mine too....it is a wonderful
experience. My wife loves it, it maintains your prime-erection for much
longer by gently restricting the flow of blood.
You and everyone who submits a picture helps
make it better! I think visitors be interested in your comments on how
much your wife loves your cockring.

I have always felt
that my penis was small especially flaccid, but I have always been able
to satisfy all my sex partners, several have been interested and fascinated
by the difference in flaccid and erect size.
THANK YOU for this excellent pair of pictures. It's good to see a soft penis that has no hint of the initial tumescence or swelling that comes before an erection. I think many visitors will benefit from seeing this pair of pictures.
age 38, height 5 ft. 8 in., weight 170 lbs, flaccid length 2.5 in., erect length 4.5 in.
My life since puberty
has been based on hiding the size of my penis and believe me it has all
but eliminated my participation in sports. For some reason most men seem
to relate their conversations somehow into dick size! The length I can
put up with, but the 4.5 in. circumference is discouraging.
I'm sorry the circumference bothers you. I hope you realize that the average circumference in the Wessells study (our best study) is only 12.30 cm. which converts to 4.84 inches. That's just .34 in., or 1/3 of an inch, fatter than yours - a very small difference. Your erection has other nice features such as the angle.

This flaccid penis is right out of the pants with only a quick side to side hip shake. The erect picture is the short version (I think) in that I had a bit of a time keeping the stiffness due to lack of motivated excitement. I am sure that I have measured slightly over 5 in. in the past...some may be due to weight gain and I think it gets bigger with the actual prospect of 'action'
Thanks for your contribution. I think I am going to begin calling this page the 4.5 club! I am really pleased to have visitors see how handsome and attractive these erections are that measure less than 5 inches.
age 34, height 6 ft. 4 in., weight 179 lbs., flaccid length 3.15 in., erect length 6.7 in.
I got inspired by your pictures and decided to find out how my penis would look in a photo. It bends down and to the left.
You've broken the string of 4.5" erections
-- but that's OK because variation is what this site is all about.
I think visitors will notice that your penis "shows" more of
its length when you are flaccid.
age 32, height 5 ft. 10 in., weight 180 lbs., flaccid length 1.5 to 2 in., erect length 4 in.
Here are 2 pics that you can use that my wife shot. Definitely on the short end.
Not so definitely -- only 1 inch shorter
than the average 5.07 inches in the Wessells study. Everyone should recognize
that if the average is about 5 in., then that means that there are A LOT
of penises that are shorter than the average.
age 36, height 5 ft. 10 in., weight 183 lbs., flaccid length 1 in., erect length 3.25 in.
As you can see from the pictures, I guess I'm what's called a grower. Percentage wise I grow a lot.
Yes, you more than triple in length. As far
as I know, the only other penis on this site that triples in length is
the second one on this page. It is far more common to approximately double
in length. Thanks for your excellent and attractive pix.
