There Are 20 Different Penis Types — and They’re All Normal

There are 20 different penises out there. Some of them are very small, some of them are medium-sized, and others are large. The average length for all men is around 5 feet 10 inches (1.65 meters). A man’s genitals vary greatly depending on their age, body type, sexual orientation and even genetics.

The first thing to understand is that there are two main types of penises:

Type 1 – The Smallest Type Of Penis

These are the smallest and most common type of human genitalia. These include the majority of men. They range from under five inches (12 centimeters) long at their glans to over seven inches (19 cm) long at the tip.

They are usually short and skinny, with no hair or pubic hair. Their skin color ranges from pale white to pinkish brown. They may have a prominent Adam’s apple, but it is not always present. Sometimes they lack any visible testicles or scrotum.

However, these features do not necessarily indicate that the person does not have a normal sized member; some men without such features still possess a fully functional organ.

These are by far the most common genitals. By one estimate, they account for 95 out of 100 men.

Type 2 – The Longest Type Of Penis

These are not as common as the type 1, but are still seen more often than the other types. They range from over 7 inches (19 cm) long at the glans to over 10 inches (25 cm) long at the tip. They tend to be thin, longer than average and curved.

They have sparse hair (or none at all), a prominent Adam’s apple and often lack a scrotum. However, these features do not always mean that the man has a curved member; some men with these features have normal genitals.

These are also known as “growers” rather than “showers.” These are less common than type 1, but still account for about 5 out of 100 men.

The rarest kinds of genitalia are the types 3, 4 and 5.

Type 3 – The Shaped Penis

These are also known as “keepers.” They range from 7 inches (19 cm) long at the glans to over 9 inches (23 cm) long at the tip. They tend to be thick as well as long. They are sometimes curved, but not in a sloping manner.

Their heads are also rounder than other types. They are fairly hairy, usually have darker skin, more body hair and more pubic hair. They also often have large testicles.

These are much rarer than the other types of penises. Only 1 out of every 100 men have this kind of genitalia.

Type 4 – The Horror

These are extremely rare and lack both a glans and a tip. Instead, the underside of the genitals is smooth and flat. These are nearly impossible to have sexual relations with, and often need to be removed by a doctor.

These are extremely rare, as only one out of every 10,000 men have these genitals.

Type 5 – The Other Horror

These are the rarest type of genitals. They take the shape of a spiral. This makes the member so long that it can actually graze the floor if the man is standing up. These also lack both a glans and a tip.
