Koreans Master Penis Length Prediction

LeftHand 2Don’t these “scientists” have more important medical mysteries to solve – maybe a cure for cancer or something? The LA Times‘ Thomas H. Maugh II reports on this groundbreaking research:

Penis length cannot be determined by how big his hands or feet are — those and other supposed indicators have been widely discredited for years. But now a team of Korean researchers has produced what may be a more reliable guide: the ratio of the length of his index finger to that of his ring finger. The lower that ratio, the longer the penis may be, the researchers wrote Monday in the Asian Journal of Andrology.

Dr. Tae Beom Kim, a urologist at Gachon University in Incheon, Korea, and his colleagues studied 144 men over the age of 20 who were undergoing urological surgery for conditions that do not affect the length of the penis. One member of the team carefully measured the lengths of the index and ring fingers on the subject’s right hand before surgery — left hands are thought to be more variable. A second team member then measured penis length immediately after the subject had been anesthetized. The length was measured both when the penis was flaccid and when it had been stretched as much as possible. Stretched length is thought to correlate to erect length, the team wrote. The team found that, in general, the lower the ratio of the lengths of the two fingers, the longer the stretched length of the penis.

Although it may seem like the results are coming out of left field, they actually are not. A variety of studies suggest that the ratio of the two finger lengths is determined by prenatal exposure to sex hormones, both testosterone and estrogen. It is not unreasonable to assume that penis length might also be…

    Eh? My ring and index fingers are almost the same length, and my penis is just a tiny little flaccid nub. terrible.

  3. The stretched length of the penis is proportional to the muscle development in the palm.

  7. Now I can’t help  picturing the scene of walking in on a small group of doctors huddled around an anesthetized patient with a tape measure and grabbing his penis and stretching it as far as they can…..sort of like one of those ‘Stretch Armstrong’ toys from the 80’s……..
    Moral of the story: If the idea that some TSA worker might  grab your ‘Junk’ for half a second while giving you a pat down bothers you ….You probably don’t want to get operated on in Korea.

      think about it, a guy goes to get a surgery for appendix removal and can’t understand why he wakes up with penis ache…

    • “stretching it as far as they can”? But surely that depends how hard they tug!

      Good thing the subjects were anesthetized.

    Seems like tons of weird research comes out of Korea, which is a good thing.

    Guys do not worry about this BS… Its crap. My index finger is longer and  I am 8 long and 6 in girth.. I’m not saying this to gloat but I know people who worry that this poorly done study indicates they are less manly… BS!! Your testosterone and growth are based off of genes, prenatal test, POSTNATAL TEST!!, diet and health This BS about fingers means jack.. Test and masculinity are multifaceted. .. need proof I’ll post pics on craigslist or something.

    Give them a break. If you had a small penis you’d probably also be obsessed with studying why and how.
