What is average penis size?

This might be a silly question, but… What is average penis size for the American male? I think mine is very small (I am around 4 and a half inches erect), and I am afraid I won’t be able to satisfy a girl. I am a virgin and I’m dating a nice girl, but I don’t let her touch me because I’m afraid she’ll lose interested because of my small penis.
To answer your question: Nobody knows for sure what’s the average penis size. Why? Because it’s really difficult to obtain the data. It’s difficult to get an erection in laboratory conditions, so the size is estimated based on partial erection. (Flaccid size has nothing to do with the erect size). Also, there’s not set criteria on where to measure (From the front? Back? Where to start and where to end?) You can also conduct a study by asking men to self-measure and report the results, but the quality of such results are dubious (for obvious reasons – men lie about their penis size).
That being said, the average penis size is said to be around 5 – 5.5 inches. That’s average. It means smaller penises are also normal and functional. If your penis is 4 and a half inches long, it’s only slightly smaller than the average one. Which means it’s functional and more than able to satisfy a woman.
Satisfying a woman, however, is not really about the penis size. And no, it’s not just a speech. You need to care about her sexual needs, to listen what she says and to think about her pleasure.
It seems like you have a nice girl (you said so yourself), so do not expect for her to leave you because of your penis (not that there’s anything wrong with it – you’re not of a porn star size, but most of the women, especially the younger ones, don’t like exceptionally big penises). In any case, a girl who loses interest because of your penis, or your nose, or your hair, or similar, is not worth your time.
Say she is really a nice girl. Why would you push her away from you? Do not force her to do anything she doesn’t want, but if she wants to explore sexual things with you, and you want to explore it… Why don’t you let her? Do not let your insecurities stop you from having a great, sexual and loving experience. There’s nothing wrong with your penis.
