It has been said that you can tell how big a guy’s penis is by looking at other parts of his body, like his hands or feet.
Urban legend says that a man’s penis is roughly half as big as the size of his shoe, so it’s not surprising that scientists have delved into the matter.
Researchers in the UK measured the size of 104 guy’ shoes and penises to tested out the theory and see if it really stands up.
To make sure the results were as accurate as possible, doctors did the measuring so men wouldn’t overestimate how much they were packing downstairs.
Scientists found that shoe sizes ranged from 5.5 to 13 while penis lengths were between 2.4 inches and 7.1 inches.
But the study, which was published in the British Journal of Urology International, found that there wasn’t any correlation between the size of mens’ feet and the size of their manhoods.
However, scientist did find that there is a correlation between a man’s hands and his penis size.
Most people think it’s a myth, but there might actually be some truth in it.
The length of a man’s index finger versus the length of his ring finger can give you quite a big hint as to how big he is when erect.
Research conducted at Gachon University Gil Hospital in South Korea found that guys with a smaller difference in length between their two fingers – which is also known as the 24:4D ratio – were more likely to have bigger penis.
So what this means is that the shorter a man’s index finger was in relation to his ring finger, the longer his erect penis is likely to be.
Scientists aren’t exactly sure why there’s a correlation, but they think it has something to do with the hormones we’re exposed to in the womb.
