Scientific Study Reveals That There’s No Correlation Between Penis Size and Ethnicity/Race

Scientific Study Reveals That There’s No Correlation Between Penis Size and Ethnicity/Race: Thyme2GardenNow

Men have long been dividing themselves into two categories: Growers and showers. And for years different average penis sizes have been thrown around either bolstering a male’s confidence or shooting it down. But now a scientific study has been released that definitively provides the average length of the male member.

So what were the results? The average flaccid penis measured at 3.6 inches, while the average erection measured at 5.16.

The results were published in the British Journal of Urology, which we’re told is not just a clever name for an English tabloid but an actual scientific publication, under the title “Am I Normal?”

The researchers used over 15,000 participants in order to get their results, which led to some other interesting conclusions. One is that their research suggested there isn’t any correlation between race/ethnicity and penis size. Therefore, it could be taken that common racial stereotypes about penis size are invalidated by this study. This would also go against the idea that people from other countries or parts of the world have different sized genitalia. Turns out dicks are the same all around the world.

Another strange insight is that penis size also isn’t correlated to any other body part measurements. For example, just because someone is taller or has longer arms does not necessarily mean they’ll have a larger penis. Compare this to female breast size, where a woman putting on body fat will also increase the size of her busts. Men, on the other hand, can gain or lose weight however they want and their penis size will not be affected.

So the old joke, “You know what they say about big feet? Big socks,” is actually a scientifically valid statement.

The study also covered penis circumference, where the averages were 3.7 inches flaccid and 4.6 inches when erect. One of the scientists on the study, Dr. David Veale, told NBC News that circumference (or girth, for the non-mathematically minded) is the more important measurement because “the most sensitive part of the vagina is the outer regions.”

According to their research, 85% of women said they were satisfied with their partner’s penis size, while only 55% of men said they were satisfied with their own. According to the Guardian, only 2.28 percent of men have a penis that would be called “unusually small” while about the same percentage has an unusually large penis.

We’ll see how many men start pulling out this study next time they’re hitting on a girl at a bar.
