Questions about sexual and genital health can be tough to ask, so INSIDER talked to a urologist about common questions related to penis size, function, and more. He said that most people who worry about penis size and consider surgeries to make their penises bigger are actually normal. Erectile dysfunction is typically associated with older people, but it can strike at any age.
Scientists studied the hands — and penises — of men, establishing the digit ratio by dividing the index finger length by the measurement of the ring finger. It was found that the lower the ratio, the smaller the manhood — meaning that men with ring fingers longer than their index digits are likely to be better endowed. Bizarre as it may seem, the study, published in the Asian Journal of Andrology, claims to have a basis in chemical biology.
So Far. Who's the Queen of Comics? Hint: Not Wonder Woman.
Correction : This article was edited to correct an error in the first paragraph regarding the mismatch between the ring and index fingers. Men: Hold up your right hand. Are your index and ring fingers mismatched? Congratulations, you're more likely than men with matching digits to have a long penis.
Apparently, if your ring finger is longer than your index finger - you've probably got a larger penis. Hey, I don't make the rules - I just report on it. This is according to research published in the Asian Journal of Andrology.
The ratio of these digits' lengths could hint at everything from personality to intellect to physiology, a number of studies suggest. Here are some of the things a man's finger length may say about him. Men with short index fingers and long ring fingers tend to be nicer toward women, according to a new study, to be published in the March issue of the journal Personality and Individual Differences.
The longer a man's ring finger when compared with his index finger, the longer the length of his penis, according to Korean researchers. The research team, led by urologist Dr. Tae Beom Kim from Gachon University in Incheon, Korea, measured the fingers and penises -- both stretched-out and flaccid -- of men who were anesthetized before undergoing urological surgery.
The second to fourth digit ratio 2D:4D has been proposed as a putative biomarker for prenatal testosterone and covaries with the sensitivity of the androgen receptor AR. Both prenatal testosterone and the AR play a central role in penile growth. In this study, we investigated the relationship between digit ratio and penile length.
For years, we've all been led to believe that if you wanted an indication of the size of a man's penis, you looked to his shoes. Well, it turns out small-footed men have been suffering from discrimination unnecessarily sending apologies to Zac Efronwith the theory turning out to be a myth. But what a new study has found to be a truer indication lies in a man's hands.
