back to article Hard luck lads, todger size DOES matter: Official

Boffins bearing tape measures appear to have confirmed that in the trouser department, size really does matter. But it's not the only thing prospective mates are eyeing when they give chaps the once-over. In fact, todger size "interacts with body shape and height to determine male sexual attractiveness", so that a "greater …

Re: I'm a grower not a shower

I was also surprised at being the idea of being a gardener but not a meteorological event involving falling water, until I looked up the definition, whereupon it all became clear:

Variables

The pictures accompanying the article are misleading. They imply that shorter men have smaller penises. It is my understanding that the range of penis sizes in a given genetic population is unrelated to their owners' heights.

As has been already pointed out - the flaccid size of a man's penis changes considerably dependent on various factors eg temperature.

Notwithstanding the differences in size of flaccid penises - their erect sizes are in a much closer range. Some expand more than others - but the majority end up pretty much the same size.

A friend fits the description of tall "hunk". His body is in proportion and his height is not obvious until you get close. However for her extra-marital flings his wife prefers short men - because their penis size "looks" bigger relative to their height.

Re: Variables

I noticed that as well. But it also says there were 53 models total, so hopefully they mixed it up a bit beyond the sample pic.

A woman's point of view......

As many have said - what about the grower vs shower issue?

There IS such a thing as "too big"

The hand size to penis size ratio is a fallacy, as is foot size to penis size, as is nose to penis (all told to me in girly chats over the years)

Girth is as important (if not more so) than length

However much you have, it's how well you use it!

"There IS such a thing as "too big""

Too long can cause bruising to the cervix. The Western average of 150mm (6 inches) is pretty much the optimum length for good penetration without risking bruising.

Re: A woman's point of view......

"Gay guys are the real size queens... much more demanding than women in that regard."

It's sort of understandable, I hardly notice it unless it is slightly too big- unless it's almost too much, it tends not to be very interesting (though that might be partly because I like the slightly scared, submissive dynamic it brings :D). (WAY TMI, so AC all the way)

Having had to have the awkward "honey, maybe you should buy a bigger strapon" conversation, I was very glad that my partner isn't male. That would have been an unfortunate situation, rather than a hilarious one. I suppose if I was with a guy instead, and he didn't impress in that respect, I would have seemed terribly shallow, too, for looking elsewhere.

Re: A woman's point of view......

Indeed, there's an "optimal" length there.

Too long and the cervix, not really known as an erogenous zone, risks getting bruised (as goes the glans actually). Thus "too" long means not fully entering the vagina.

On the other hand, fully entering brings the mons pubis into contact, or at least aids in stimulation of, the clitoris (in most of the face to face variations at least).

Girth is another matter but length, definitely a trade off taking place there.

Good use of public money

How is this research, funded by public money, in the public's interest? Why was this even funded in the first place?

This is EvoDevo research at its most useless

+++

This project was funded by the Australian Research Council; ethics approval was granted through Monash University (MUHREC Approval CF11/1378 2011000764).

Just grumpy cos my last grant on a cancer project was refused.

And cos I have small hands.

Facepalm

I've been mislead all my life

Here was me thinking that when it came to todger size that it was in reference to when the penis was erect not flacid. Now I find out that it's actually down to the flacid size? This explains why I've had no action wearing the mankini...

Being large in thr trouser department is bad. Most women outside of a porn movie do not like big as it is uncomfortable at least if not painful.

Don't agree. I am big, and I have known women to be scared by it. But the important thing is to be gentle and then they end up unable to get enough of it. I gather that many men (of any size) are quite rough and inconsiderate.

Maybe if you just try to ram it in, sure. Start off slowly, get everyone properly excited, and you will see some new facial expressions, and possibly hear some new swear words, after a little time. A little care and attention will allow you to deposit anything smaller than a medium-sized library.

Did no one notice ...

the subtle shadow of the todger in the pictures ? Perhaps they should have used examples lit from the front, not side ....

Take it from me.. (slightly rude)

Im just the right size, not too big, not too small, but while women claim they like big men, the reality is that they love the feeling of balls banging away on them.

I have been with girls where I have tickled their cervix and it can be more of a turn off if your a little too rough.

You only have to watch a bluey with a monster member where he's on the other side of the room. where's the fun in that!!

It only matters if it's too small or too big

...once in the average range it's what you do with it that counts.

I can see why a micro penis would affect attractiveness...but most woman aren't exactly crying out for a Dirk Diggler unless they enjoy walking like John Wayne on a regular basis

BMI...

... the research also suggests that the preference for bigger members was more marked in women with a bigger BMI. This may be obvious, but I expected some commentards to have something to say about it ...

Tell this to the iPhone toting Jeremy Kyle guests! An arguing couple, both as FUGLY as thatcher, the "girl" when asked why she continues to have unprotected sex with the monster, said "cause he's hung like a donkey".

Totally contradictory to what a tax payers report has said.

According to a couple guys I know who are rumored, and claim, to have extraordinary organs, a freakishly large tool tends to scare most women off. (Though I seriously doubt one of them has much experience in that department. If he does someone should tell his boyfriend.)
