Do you know what they say about men's feet and the size of their manhood? Well, we got that all wrong.
Instead of looking at your potential mates' fingers or footwear size, you should be looking at their nose, if size does matter to you.
And since this was scientifically proven, you no longer have to take those awkward glances at the guy's jeans.
The study was published in Basic and Clinical Andrology
Researchers found that men with larger noses had a "stretched penile length' of at least 5.3 inches, while men with smaller noses had a penis length of 4.1 inches when erect."
This unusual study was conducted by researchers from the Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine.
The researchers looked at the corpses of 126 men within three days of their deaths. Strange, but true.
Complete data included their height, weight, the weight of their testicles, length of the penis when flaccid, and the circumference of the penis.
Researchers then worked out the "stretched penile length" or SPL of each corpse by laying the body down and pulling the penis up as far as it would go.
We Still Do Not Understand Why
The study concluded:
"The fact that nose size is related to SPL indicates that penile length may not be determined by age, height or bodyweight but has already been determined before birth."
However, the big question, why, is still unanswered. And just to be clear, the study did not find it useful for forensic purposes, but it will be continued in an effort to answer the burning question: why males with more prominent noses have bigger penises.
Not The First Study Of Its Kind
Previously, another Japanese study revealed that the average penis size is 4.5 inches.
It concluded that it might be helpful for other male-related growing processes:
"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."
Hopefully, we did not ruin Pinocchio for you. As for whether size really matters, well, that is up to you.
