There have been many jokes made over the years about height, handspan and shoe size.

It turns out that people have been looking at the wrong thing all along.

A new study suggests that men who have bigger noses also have longer penises.

For the new research, it was found that men blessed with bigger noses also have a ‘stretched penile length’ of at least 5.3 inches.

In comparison, men with smaller noses have a penis length of 4.1 inches when erect.

In case you were wondering how they found this out, the study, has been published in Basic and Clinical Andrology.

Sorry if you’re eating your dinner, but for the study the researchers looked at the corpses of 126 men. They were examined within three days of death and measured a range of body parts.

It was carried out by earchers from Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine.
Some of the measurements that was examined included height, weight, the length of their penis when flaccid, the circumference of their penis and the weight of their testicles.
It’s probably not what scientists imagined they would be examining when they started training for their job.

Apparently – and you learn something new every day – an accurate way to replicate the length of an erect penis is to “lay the cadaver out and pull the penis up as far as it would go”. Doing this provided the researchers with the ‘stretched penile length’ (SPL).

The study concluded: “The fact that nose size is related to SPL indicates that penile length may not be determined by age, height or body weight but has already been determined before birth.”


The data was then analysed, and found the length of the men’s noses correlated with the size of the penis.

The average penis size is 4.5 inches in Japan, according to a different study.

This study might have proven that there is a relation between nose and penis size, however they didn’t find a reason why this is.

It added: “Although our results are useless for forensic purposes, understanding the growing process of the penis or facial features may be very important for extrapolating fetal androgen levels and following male genital functions.

“This study is the first to demonstrate the relationship between SPL and nose size but is limited in Japanese male cadavers, and the reason why SPL and nose size are related is still unclear.

“Therefore, we consider it an interesting subject to pursue from now on.”

Dating And Sex

This wasn’t the only study that’s been done lately discussing bedroom matters.

Big One Dating got busy asking 4,761 women about the last time they had sex.

They wanted to know: How big was he? Did you climax?

The common magic number was eight inches. It’s claimed this did the trick for 44 percent of women.

Researchers also found that enjoyment dropped, the longer they were.

Not many people would feel sorry for someone packing 11-inchers, but the study said bigger wasn’t always better. They were only pleasuring 30 percent of women.

Are you surprised?
