The average penis size in the UK has increased by nearly 10% in the last two years, with experts believing that weight loss jabs might be the reason why.

Between 2022 and 2024, the average UK penis size has gone from 5.17 inches to 5.63, rising by 0.46 inches in the space of two years, figures have revealed.

New data has shown that the UK has positioned eighth in the world for the biggest penis growth in the last two years.

According to the data, Venezuelans saw the biggest growth to their penises over the two years – increasing by 1.42 inches and reaching 6.67 inches.

Meanwhile, Italians have seen the biggest decrease in penis size, with the average manhood measuring just under five inches.

In terms of overall size on the international stage, the UK ranks further down the scale, placing at number 60.

Dr Richard Viney, a consultant urological surgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, said: “Men’s penises shorten as they get older (due to) increasing body fat and increasing prostate size drawing the penis back into the body.

“It is theoretically possible new drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy, which are used to treat diabetes and obesity respectively and can cause people to lose weight, could also be a factor. As men lose weight, their penises appear larger.”

Pharmacist Navin Khosla said: “While the data is interesting, penis size doesn’t matter in a medical sense.

“Just like how some people prefer different fashion styles, eye colours, or characteristics in a partner, some people are more attracted to larger penises or breasts, while others prefer smaller ones.”
