Worldwide, men have the largest penises in Republic of Congo at 18 centimeters (7.1 inches) and the smallest in North and South Korea at 9.65 centimeters (3.8 inches), The Telegraph reports.

The survey, carried out by Richard Lynn, emeritus professor of psychology at Ulster University, was published in the scientific journal Personality and Individual Differences.
