The size of a man's junk does matter?

Seems so...

Quote:
Science has spoken and, yes, gentlemen, size does matter.

A newly published study by a University of Ottawa researcher has concluded penis length exerts a measurable sway on females evaluating potential sexual partners.

"We found that flaccid penis size had a significant influence on male attractiveness," concludes the study that was published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.

"Males with a larger penis were rated relatively more attractive."

Biologist Brian Mautz said he came to the study through curiosity over the evolution of male genitalia. Compared to other male primates, human endowment is generous.

"This observation has generated suggestions by evolutionary biologists that the comparatively larger human penis evolved under premating sexual selection," says his paper. "Novels, magazines and popular articles often allude to the existence of a relationship between penis size and sexual attractiveness or masculinity."

Nor is the effect limited to pop culture.

Interesting, but it is not like our penis size is on public record.

Unless, of course, you sleep with that one girl that can't keep her mouth shut.

This article is ridiculous.

"Man, that girl in the bar is hot! I wonder if she thinks I'm attractive...I know! I'll go show her my wang and see if she likes it or not!"

If a girl is seeing your penis for the first time, chances are she's already in bed with you, which, obviously means she was attracted to you before she knew how endowed you were.

Stupid stupid stupid. Your value as a man comes from knowing yourself and being confident in who you are. That's what is most attractive to women. Not your penis size.

Indeed, its not like a woman is going to suddenly say "Hey I think you are hotter" or "Hey you are suddenly ugly" after seeing your junk for the first time. Or maybe they do? Never really noticed.

Did you read the article? If you did, you'd know that the study only measured three physical characteristics, and unsurprisingly:

Quote:
Body shape is biggest factor
Perhaps unsurprisingly, they preferred men who were tall, long and V-shaped. Overall, body shape accounted for about 80 per cent of the variation in attractiveness scores, penis size about six per cent and height about five per cent.
Yeah, penis size isn't going to be the be-all-end-all of attraction, and no, you probably won't woo a woman by showing her your penis. The study doesn't endorse either of those assertions.

Yeah, it's a nice thing to have but it hardly makes or breaks your chances with a girl.

BTW, most of that size doesn't matter stuff is out there because guys in general are so insecure about their dick size.

MOD NOTE: Please keep discussion on the study, not comparisons of "the size" between individuals A and B.

I'm sorry, but this is a bloody waste of resources. Variance in penis size as it pertains to female attractiveness is no more worth studying than variance in chest hair amounts, variance in snoring levels or whatever else women find attractive or unattractive.

Had (s)he studied semen count related to penis size, testosterone levels related to size, or some other attribute that's important to human biology, he/she could save him/herself the time and effort and just know, yes, obviously size matters. I don't know, is conception probability worth studying? Just a guess, but I'm pretty sure there's an ideal size pertaining to the likelihood of conception relative to the vagina canal.

Seems a scientific study cannot be discussed without going way OT.

Closed.
