If you are Nigerian, there is a high possibility you would know about the widespread belief about slimmer men having bigger members.
According to this long-held belief, leaner men with flat buttocks normally have bigger phalluses. So common is this public opinion that it has inspired an actual research study.
The study, conducted by physicians (Orakwe JC, Ogbuagu BO and Ebuh GU) at the Department of Surgery, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Nigeria, sought to exactly establish the relationship between physique and size of buttocks and penile length in adult Nigerian men.
For the research, the stretched penile length of 115 men between the ages of 30-65 years was taken.
The body-mass index and the circumference of the hip of each man were also measured and all results were statistically combined and compared.
The eventual outcome of the study revealed there was a significant direct correlation between penile length and gluteal size, but not physique.
Linear regression statistics showed no statistically significant correlation between stretched penile length and body-mass index (physique).
Penile length has no relationship to physique, the study stated.
The research, while supporting a correlation between penile length and size of buttocks, also created another confusion.
Contrary to the earlier belief, large buttocks are more predictive of longer penile length than small buttocks!
Finger Size and Penis Size
A recent study has found a link between finger length and penis size. The Asian research found evidence of a link between the relative length of a man’s index and ring fingers and the size of the penis.
Asian scientists found that the ratio between the second and fourth digits on a man’s right hand seemed to correlate to the length of his flaccid and stretched penis, with a lower index to ring finger length ratio indicating a longer penis.
Choi and colleagues compared the digit ratios of 144 Korean men aged 20 and older who were being treated for urological surgery.
Researchers measured the index and ring fingers of each man’s right hand and compared the ratio to the length of each man’s fully stretched, flaccid penis (the latter data obtained under anaesthesia).
