The Definition of Micropenis Varies and Depends on Ethnicity

Micropenis definition varies and depends on ethnicity, age and other factors
In the what is a micropenis condition article, I briefly mention that there is no "gold standard" size for micropenis as the definition depends on numerous factors like the patient's age and ethnicity.

The latter may sound a bit racist to some, but it's actually true and based on real scientific data.

In this post I have selected to present you the results from two different studies, that back up these claims.

In the first study, named "Should the definition of micropenis vary according to ethnicity?", the authors measured the stretched penile length of 105 full term newborn male infants:
  • 40 babies belonging to the Caucasian race
  • 40 babies of Chinese origin
  • 25 babies East-Indian origin

The researchers concluded that both the average penile length and diameter are slightly but statistically significantly smaller in newborns boys of Chinese origin compared to newborn boys of Caucasian and East-Indian origin. For this reason, they suggest that the borderline penile length that should be used for the diagnosis of micropenis must be:
  • 2.6 cm for Caucasian newborns
  • 2.5 cm for newborns of East- Indian origin 
  • 2.3 cm for newborns from China 

This study was published at the Hormone research Journal and was conducted by Cheng PK and Chanoine JP. You can read the abstract by clicking here.


Now let's see the second study named"Penile length of newborns in Singapore.". In this one, the researchers examined 228 male newborns of up to three days of age. The researchers again found that race had a significant impact on stretched penile length.

Specifically, it was found that:
  • For Asian babies the average stretched penile length is 3.6 cm
  • For Chinese babies the average stretched penile length is 3.5 cm
  • For Malay babies the average stretched penile length is 3.6 cm 
  • For Indian babies the average stretched penile length is 3.8 cm

The study concluded that:
"Asian babies thus have similar norms to Caucasian babies. An Asian newborn whose penis measures less than 2.6 cm has micropenis and may need prompt investigation for underlying endocrine disorders." 
This study was conducted by Ting TH & Wu LL and was published at the "Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism". You can access it here

  1. Honestly I've been dealing with micro penis for some time now. I used to think I was pretty small growing up and I would tell myself that it's gonna grow because am still growing up. Now am 36 yrs old male and dealing with feeling like a Lil boy trapped in a Lil boys body because I have such a small and thin penis which makes me feel less of a man. It's something that had always bothered me and have tried everything to increase the size of my penis and nothing has worked. Am at the point where am OK with having a tiny penis. It's made me what I am today. I have a serious fetishes with having a small penis. Its called small penis humiliation and it's something that really makes me feel comfortable and able to express and literally show a room of random women my Lil penis as they watch and take pictures of my lil penis. I've have let women take videos on there phone and pics of there ditgtal Camara. It's all made me who I am today and Its something that I get a pleasure from. So it's OK guys if u have a tiny penis. Show the world and make it totally a fun and kinky fun time. I love having a tiny thin or penis. I use two fingers to jerk my penis off. I love my baby dick aka micro penis living baby
