Chances are good that, if asked, almost every man can tell you that his penis size is slender and erect. The reason is simple: He took a ruler at least once in his life, measured himself from different angles and learned the resulting specifications by heart. Because at a young age, men realized that dick size matters. For sex, sure. But also because it is a marker of virility, of manhood. Life took a hot poker and burned it into our brains. Having a larger than average penis was a gift, one that meant you were more of a man. We all wanted to see how we measure. The game of penis size comparison was virtually impossible to ignore.
There are many markers used to estimate the size of a man’s penis, especially height and foot size. You know what they say about men with big shoes, right? Wink. And you know what they say about tall men, right? Blink, wink. Well, a review of the many studies that have suggested these ratios, found that any correlations between penis size and either height or foot size were “either inconsistent or weak.” (The latter conclusion is based on the fact that the study sizes were too small, or that too much of the data itself was reported.) But it would take much more than a review study to scrub the penis-size-foot size. equivalence from collective memory.
However, as it turns out, there may be a more surprising and more accurate way to estimate a man’s penis size.
The penis-nose size correlation
It seems that researchers can not stop thinking about how to guess a person’s penis size. A recent study published in the journal Basic and Clinical Andrology shows that there is indeed a correlation between nose size and penis size. A team of Japanese researchers studied the bodies of 126 middle-aged men. They took a variety of measurements, including height, weight, testicular weight, penis circumference, and flaccid penis length. They also decreased elongated penis length, which according to researchers determined the best length of the erect penis.
Its brevity: The researchers found a correlation between penis size and nose size, measured as the distance from the center of each subject’s eyes to where the nostril begins. Subjects whose noses were smaller than 1.8 inches had a stretched penis length of 4.1 inches or less. Those who had a nose that was 2.2 inches long or longer (22 percent larger) had penises that measured an average of 5.3 inches long. Those with nostrils that fell between these two extremes had an average penis size of 4.5 inches.
Researchers concluded that “the fact that nose size is associated with SPL (stretched penis length) suggests that penis length may not be determined by age, height or body weight, but has already been determined before birth.”
It’s time to drop the penis size comparisons
So what does it all mean? For one, the study should be taken with a grain of salt, as the researchers looked at just 126 subjects, and they were all deceased. But more importantly, the study teaches us a whole lot of nothing but the fact that the obsession with penis size is alive.
It is second nature for men to suffer from size uncertainty and to make penis size comparisons with what they see in pornography, in the shared showers at a local pool, or anywhere else. But the truth of the matter is that it’s all relational: If you’re comfortable with who you are, what does it matter? If your partner is happy with your size, what does it matter? This is a difficult fact to finally understand, as it requires one to eliminate preconceived ideas of masculinity. Comfort with yourself takes time, and it usually becomes apparent when a man is in his teens and twenties and begins to calm down.
For especially fathers of boys, it is good to pay attention and bring up with your sons. I’m sure many men will admit there are some of them who radiate pride when they hear that their son is packing. But whether it’s ballpark frank or mini-cucumber, the size of one’s penis – or the characteristics that can say something about a person’s hunger – have nothing to do with who they are, as much as they are think it says about who they are. is. If your son has a prize pig? Good for him. If he does not, what difference does it make? The less we stick to these ingrained ideas of masculinity, the more likely we are to highlight the traits that actually matter.
Anyway, have you heard of the guy with the big nose? Large tissues.
