If size does matter to you and you’ve been peeping at a man’s shoe to clue you in on his length, it seems you might be looking in the wrong place.
According to a new study conducted on 144 Korean men hospitalized to undergo urological surgery (work done on the reproductive system and urinary tract), the ratio of the length of a man’s index finger to that of his ring finger can possibly determine penis size. The lower the ratio, the longer the length. Crazy right? Even though there’s always been the belief in a bigger hand, the bigger the equipment by people sans scientific degrees, this time researchers are saying it’s more in the digits. So supposedly, when the index finger is shorter than the ring finger, this could mean a longer penis size, but not necessarily a wider one. So don’t get too crunk.
The men were measured both during erect stages as well during their flaccid moments after anesthesia (yeah, not too sure how all that was accomplished), and then had their fingers measured as well. Through this study, it’s believed that a lower ratio is directly correlated with the amount of testosterone a man is exposed to while in the womb. The more testosterone, the more a man is endowed with. The less testosterone a man gets and the more estrogen that he receives, the smaller the penis size can be. But before you run in the bar asking to see a man’s hand before you even know his name, remember that the study was performed on Korean men alone. It’s not clear whether the same evaluation would ring true for brothas and any other ethnic group of men. But it never hurts to start glancing for more than a wedding ring on that finger, ladies.
