Put down the rulers, guys — whether your penis is the "right" size depends on the proportions of the rest of your body, a new study finds. Women rate men with larger penises more attractive, but the returns on bigger genitals start to decrease at a flaccid length of 2. What's more, larger penises gave tall men a bigger attractiveness boost than shorter men. The study suggests that women's preferences for bigger penises could explain why human males have relatively big genitals for their body size. Studies on women's preferences for penis size have been mixed, with some suggesting that women who frequently orgasm through vaginal stimulation are the pickiest, perhaps because penis size matters for that sort of stimulation. Men typically fret more about size than women , however, at least according to a review article in the British Journal of Urology International.

The findings suggest that female choice may have driven the evolution of larger penises in humans. Past psychology studies that have asked women about their preferences for penis size have produced mixed opinions, with some saying they don't care about the size, while others say they prefer larger penises. But those women may have felt pressured to say the politically correct thing: That size doesn't matter, said study leader Brian Mautz , a biologist at the University of Ottawa, Canada. So his team set up an experiment in which Australian women—averaging 26 years old—each looked at 53 life-size images of various computer-generated male silhouettes projected onto a screen. The gray, homogenous-looking men had different heights, shoulder-to-hip ratios or body shapes , and flaccid-penis lengths.
How much do we really know about the penis? As much as we all take pride in this sometimes little package, many women and men alike don't really know all that much about it. And while ignorance can be bliss, knowledge — especially about that oh-so-favored of body parts — is most definitely power. While this may not seem entirely fair, it turns out that size can be a predictor of some matters related to sex, including a woman's ability to have orgasms during penetration.
I felt that shame and embarrassment myself. Landon is acutely aware of the size of his member: 4. The subreddit has over 17, subscribers.
