Here's the tweet mocking Indian penis size:

The answer may be subjective but there are real statistics available on penis sizes of people across the world, and the results are shocking. Did you know, Indian men reportedly have the second smallest penis in the world? If we don't include exceptions, the statics say that Indian men's penis sizes do not go beyond 12.26 cm on an average and fall in the list of the smallest penises in the world. According to World Data info, the average size of a penis across the world is about 14.03 cm.
