Put down the rulers, guys — whether your penis is the "right" size depends on the proportions of the rest of your body, a new study finds. Women rate men with larger penises more attractive, but the returns on bigger genitals start to decrease at a flaccid length of 2. What's more, larger penises gave tall men a bigger attractiveness boost than shorter men. The study suggests that women's preferences for bigger penises could explain why human males have relatively big genitals for their body size. Studies on women's preferences for penis size have been mixed, with some suggesting that women who frequently orgasm through vaginal stimulation are the pickiest, perhaps because penis size matters for that sort of stimulation. Men typically fret more about size than women , however, at least according to a review article in the British Journal of Urology International.
Size really does matter to women when choosing a male partner
What Penis Size Do Women Prefer? | RealClearScience
Researchers have finally made what might be the most important discovery of all: the ideal penis size. Well, sort of. They did reach a consensus about what women desire in one-night stands and long-term relationships — but it's not fantastic news for dudes who might be on the smaller side. The study: Researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles and the University of New Mexico took a novel approach to evaluating women's penile preferences. Prause and her team created a matrix of possible penis sizes, with 10 different lengths and 10 different circumferences. The researchers then printed 33 dome-topped blue cylinders meant to model erect penises, which resembled high-end vibrators more than they did actual dicks.

Good news, normally-endowed men of the world! When it comes to penis size, bigger isn't always better! But it doesn't hurt to be slightly above average In what may be the most titillating use of 3D printing to date, researchers primarily based out of the University of California Los Angeles manufactured 33 phallic objects of various sizes pictured above and asked a diverse group of 75 women attracted to men average age 25 to analyze the collection and select which would be their preferred penis size for sexual intercourse.
A few months ago, I had a round of these conversations with the usual suspects in my life. Think of it as a dick Overton window: a continuum of acceptability, but in this case, one that varies from person to person. Boyfriend dicks have a measurable component, of course, but not a consistent one. Vaginas vary in depth and sensitivity just like penises vary in length and shape, and where some women may enjoy the mix of pleasure and pain she gets when someone hung repeatedly bashes into her cervix, others want nothing to do with it.
