Where do people lie most about their penis size?

Australian and Americans exaggerate the size of their penises by as much as an inch and a half, a study has claimed.

The British also lie about their nether regions, but Canadian and Indians are more modest, actually underestimating the length of their appendages.

Their counterparts in Australia think they’re endowed with more than seven inches down under – but women asked about the last penis they saw have said it’s more like five and a half inches.

And the survey found that Americans were the most overly proud of their phalluses, telling researchers they possessed 7.2 inches when they only really have 6.6 inches.

On the other end of the scale, Canadian women claimed the penises they’d seen were the biggest in the world, at 7 inches – but this was contradicted by the people who should know best, who said their appendages were slightly smaller.

The admittedly heteronormative study conducted by SaucyDates.com surveyed 1,715 people around the world and found that overall, people exaggerate their penis size by six per cent.

Unsurprisingly, people with less than 5.5 inches in their nether regions are most likely to say they have more going for them than they really do.

A spokesperson for the website pointed out that more women in Britain had claimed they’d seen a 12-inch-plus penis in the wild than in any other country.

“If you are looking for a monstrous sized penis then you should focus your efforts on UK men, as 1 in 20 will have enough inches to need a bigger ruler.

“If you want to play it safe and go for a good all-round size and infallible honestly, then Canada is the country for you – and avoid the Americans or Australians who think lying increases your size, like Pinocchio.”
