Inspired by a study by the British Journal of Urology International that revealed the length of an average penis, Mashable decided to compare the average penis size with everyday household items.

According to the study, which pulled data from 17 previous academic papers, the average length of a flaccid penis is 3.61 inches while an erect penis measures 5.16 inches.

Using blue and red LEGO bricks to represent a flaccid and erect penis respectively, Mashable placed them next to objects like a ruler, a crayon, and wine corks to see how they stack up.

And for good measure, they threw in a banana to visualize the scale.
