Facts/myths about penis sizes

 Pages 1 2 3 4 NEXT
 

So I've been wondering about this for ages, but never bothered to properly look into it. Is it some kind of scientific fact or urban legend that black men tend to have large penises (or, at least, larger than most non-blacks and/or whites), and that Asian men adapted or something to have small penises?

EDIT: Sorry, thought this was the off-topic section. Could a moderator move this there, please?

This really appears to be random, if there is a non disturbing reason this came up by all means share.

My understanding was that while too few studies on this matter have been held to eliminate doubt, no significant racial correlation has been found. It really is just a myth.

Seeing as I'm half-Asian, does this mean I have a kind of half-sized penis?

OT: I'll be honest I also agree it's just a myth. I hope.

I believe it's just a myth, a very popular myth.

ok...

How about people do research before they post?

Here is the site:

Now you de-construct it and assess its credibility... what are the sources and the research papers backing it up.

I honestly don't care but... do some bloody research before writing something off...

By the map given it appears that there are definitely some differences depending on country, but the average only differs by a smallish amount. That assumes that all the data are from a decent source, and also doesn't really measure 'race' in a valid way, but is good enough I suppose.

Bear in mind that these are all average lengths, and there are probably outliers in all cultures with abnormally large dongs.

well I suppose for the sake of science we should all list our racial heritage and post pictures of our manhoods next to a ruler...

I knew this forum would come to this one day

Hmmm, questionable evidence from that link really, how many people were taking part in that survey? Not too many I bet.

"Average penile length by country"
*search*
"Was that so hard"

I love it when things line up perfectly like that.

Indeed.

Okay everyone, get your junk out and let's have a gander, nothing gay about it, come on.

Yes, "This scientific data you give me might be incorrect so I don't think I will take it into account. I will instead put my trust into completely anecdotal data." syndrom.

How about you give some evidence on the contrary instead of just dismissing it?

There is probably some variation between `races' as there is a strong genetic component, but as the saying goes, it's what you do with it.

Next thing you know we'll have individual signatures that they just fill with pictures of scantily clad models

Yup, there's no other logical course of action. Well, here we go:

Oh, dear God. I now have a mental image of a penis that's two different sizes split down the middle lengthwise. My brain. My goddamn brain.

OT: Links have been provided by others and I've never cared enough to look into the matter. I don't see the point in knowing. Best you'll get are statistical averages, which don't actually say much of anything about individuals.

just remember not to make eye contact... if you don't make eye contact it's not gay :D

Who says penile length anyway?

Sheesh.

Hell no, real men never lose eye contact.

Those are the rules of gay chicken.

OK here is mine (keep in mind it was cold out)

I was agreeing with the map, just exploring what the data appeared to show (which your graph replicates - some differences between populations, but these differences are within a couple of cm of each other). I also don't really feel like digging through journals on a Saturday night just to verify claims I was fairly sure of - if you want to do that, then fine.

Well , i think it has to do with the height of a person . Usually black men are taller , thus have bigger members , as in arms, legs ,hands , penis . Being tall and having a small penis would look strange , whereas being short and having a huge penis would look strange . However that doesn't mean tall people can't have small penises and short people can't have large ones . It just doesn't look proportionate .

That being said , i measured mine , and incidentally , it is roughly half the length of my foot ( a little bit more) , i have always heard that a mans penis size has something to do with his foot so ... My foot 14 inches long ( big toe to heel) and my penis is 7 1/2 inches when erect .

Take from that what you will.

edit : before anyone asks . Yes i am black , and i mesure 6 feet 3 in height .

It means you have a 3/4 size penis. You know, average of "normal" and "half sized."

...and that's the clincher right there, folks. The bigger you are, the bigger you are. Not just height, but build. Taller and thicker equals longer and thicker... usually. There are always exceptions (and in this case, they usually wind up in porn).

Penis size doesn't reflect height. Plus, as far as black men go, they heavily run the gauntlet.

Penis size also has little to no correlation to foot or hand size.

Also, Jesus Christ! How is your foot 14" long at 6'3"? I'm 6'5", considered to have HUGE feet, and my longer foot is 11".

Please. Everyone knows gamerscore points determine penis size.

It's fact.
Watch a couple of pornos and see for yourself.

Arkvoodle:
Snip

Arkvoodle speaks a valid point, Gamerscore/number of trophies is a great factor into the size of one's penis.

Isn't it based on your testosterone levels from birth? It's what starts the transformation from female to male. This is why you can't get the gender discovered in the first trimester. Because it'll always appear female. This is the same with all mammals.

If black men are larger, it's only because these black men have more testosterone than other people. Which isn't specifically race specific.

hmm, so the average penis in Congo is 7.1 inches, and the average penis in South Korea is 3.8 inches.

Interesting knowledge to have, I guess o_O

Though, looking at the link, it appears that it cobbled together the map using a ton of different sources, some half a century old, so the data probably isn't completely accurate.

I have to put this point across . . . Op could possibly be the Jesus troll. Especially with the new British internet search monitoring law.

OT: Personally I have no idea how you could collect accurate research on the length of penises around the world. I mean if you have a big one, you are going to be putting it to good use; y'know, playing baseball with it. And if you have a small one, well. . . I wouldn't be confident enough to start flashing in front of researchers. And if you have a medium length one you are going to want to go find some where to stick it.

i know his thread was about penis size or somesuch...but its turned into some really inspired trolling. Bravo! :D

Its 100% myth started when black people wanted to get more equality and power... from memory i could be totally wrong though

It's a myth based on a fact.

The fact is that penis size generally correlates to some degree with adult height and body size. Therefore, in countries where men tend to be shorter the average penis size will be smaller. A lot of Asian countries still have a relatively low adult height, although it's increasing over time.

However, samples which adjust for height suggest that ethnicity itself has no correlation with penis size.

This thread is making me sooooooo hard.

Wait...I'm not a man.

I didn't dismiss it, I just didn't take it as fact.

I do not believe this is how pregnancy and birth works. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think testosterone is magically predetermined at birth. Since it can vary throughout your life and all.
