The bigger the nose, the bigger the penis…right? Well, that’s not quite how the adage goes, but according to a new study carried out by researchers at Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, there is a significant correlation between nose size and penis size.
Published in the medical journal Basic and Clinical Andrology, the researchers of the study 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 erect.
The team of researchers drew this conclusion by looking at the dead corpses of 126 men within three days of death and measured different parts of their body. After taking into account varying factors such height, weight and measurements of the penis (there were no links between feet size and appendage size, before you ask), the authors of the study then worked out the “stretched penile length” (SPL) of each cadaver. This was measured by, and sorry to be so graphic, by pulling the penis up as far as it would go. Hopefully they used gloves.
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 by birth.
“Although our results are useless for forensic purposes, understanding the growing process of penis or facial features may be very important for extrapolating foetal androgen levels and following male genital functions.”
Currently, this study is limited to Japanese cadavers and further research is needed. But, maybe this study is the first to highlight that your face can give away more than what you think.
