Scientists: The Bigger the Meat, The More Likely She’ll Cheat

Well, they didn’t exactly put it that way, but…

Via Huffington Post:

Contrary to popular belief, a new study out of Kenya found that husbands with larger penises were more likely to be cheated on by their wives (shocking, we know).

For the study — published this month in PLOSOne — researchers interviewed 545 married couples in Kenya in order to better understand their relationship habits and, more specifically, to identify factors which contributed to women having extramarital affairs.

Researchers asked both partners to self-report the male’s erect penis size (they had a 15 inch ruler on hand for reference). Then, if there were differences between the estimates (which there were), they either took the average of the two or went with the estimate from the partner who was less likely to fib.

What they found was rather shocking:

“Every one inch longer penis increased the likelihood of women being involved in extra-marital partnership by almost one-and-half times,” the researchers wrote. “Women associated large penises with pain and discomfort during sex which precludes the enjoyment and sexual satisfaction that women are supposed to feel.”

Grab your 15 inch ruler and read the rest.

      Wait… you mean it isn’t normal to be made out of stone, or rectangular?

      This answers a lot of personal questions I’ve been harboring for years now.

    Never fear, with this totally scientific virtual tool you can match up your genitalia with the perfect partner.

    The problem is, the study has been conducted in Kenya. Solely there. So it is not a study that represent the average person. In Kenya, culture is very different than from Asia or America. In social and human science, you can’t conclude to anything if you don’t make you work broader.

      I see no reason that these results should not be taken as representative of Kenya.

      Out of curiosity, would you make the same observation if the study were conducted in Canada, the UK, France, or even in South Africa?

    & here I thought it was going to be a comment on testosterone & spousal abuse… Then again, the truth isn’t too much better. :-(
