Some evidence that p____ size is correlated to success

Safe for work:

“This was quite surprising,” Mautz says. “Height is one of the most studied traits — it influences how much money a man makes, his place on the leadership scale and how many children he has. To find that penis size has the same effect is quite surprising.”

This explains a lot… and by that, I mean my lack of success.

Who wrote this article? A few things of note:

“the male figures generated for the study topped out at 13 centimeters, about 5 inches”

Kind of falling short of the “Grinch’s six inches” here, and leaves many important questions unanswered. For instance, how would the test subjects respond to members of Shane Diesel or CVAvsMBA-esque stature? Also, isn’t the proper conclusion of this study “women don’t like small dicks” rather than “woman prefer larger dicks”.

Also, did the test subjects just look at pictures of dicks? Seeing something in real life might be different, just like the attractiveness of a person based on physical dimensions might be different when you see the person from a physical point of reference.

“The study “is really great,” says behavioral ecologist Patricia Brennan of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, whose recent research has focused on duck penis length and shape.”

This is either the best or worst use of a person’s life work…

There is a non-zero probability that the linked article will include pictures of penises, so I’m not clicking.

im not clicking either but I do know that no fap increased my size substantially. even in the relaxed state im proud.


Can’t find a job? Make one up and convince academics it’s important to study and fund you.

No penis pics and the study is about flacid size. Explains the five inches. It is an Australian study.


There is no relationship b/w flaccid / non-flaccid. 5 inches could very well translate to 5.5 inches that’s it.

Reports worldwide once you negate for diet and nutrition state median range as 5-7 inches across a height range from 5’4’’ to 6’5’’.

If you are disdainfully referring to 5 inches as flaccid then perhaps the porn industry beckons.



Just responding to the quote Ohai referenced, “the male figures generated for the study topped out at 13 centimeters, about 5 inches”. Do you not top out over 5 inches erect? Do the women care? I’m certain they notice.

Nvm, footy is on. Better stuff to argue about.

By the way, Equatorial Guinea, apparently, is the only place on earth where the oil field workers, by their own choice, don’t readily fraternize with the local women. I worked on a project there, thankfully remotely, and I didn’t run across anybody that said they were willing. Obviously, it doesn’t happen in places like Saudi either, but that is not by the worker’s choice.

plus i’d assume there are other factors than size, ie. some dude with a huge one but its one of those side winders, or disproportionate things or other factor.

Too many exogenous factors… or should I say… exopenious

Not going to click twice, but I think it said a big schlong didn’t make up for being short and fat.

actually, youre probably referring to this site:

Interesting study of penis size and athletic ability: After spending a year analysing the results, he found that all of the men were inclined to look at other penises in the changing room in order to compare one teammate’s size with another. Well-endowed teammates, he noted, were likely to become key team-building members of the group. “This knowing of who has a large cock and who didn’t within a homosocial environment helped individual sporting males climb up a social hierarchy of importance,” he wrote in Outsports. “Those with the larger penises were revered and idolised by their teammates as a symbol of masculinity.”

@isildurr, I’m not sure how well understood your flaccid argument is among women. My understanding is that a small flaccid penis will expand by more than a large flaccid penis, but I’m not sure how well that’s actually backed up by evidence.

Regardless, imagine that big hulking (tall and strong) men have above average earnings. It’s not easy to measure tall and strong, but it’s easy to measure tall, so that is what people typically report. Tall people make more.

Now, let’s assume that having a large flaccid penis is slightly correlated with being one of these big hulking men. Then, if you look at the average earnings of people will large flaccid penises, then you might see better earnings. However, you really need to control for height and strength. That is, given a particular body type, does having a larger or smaller penis influence earnings. I would guess there is not statistically significant evidence on that question.

Possibly definitive proof that pen!s size is correlated to athletic ability: SFW, but maybe slightly h0mo.

(This is the dude who won the World Cup, for those not athletically inclined.)
