Do you have a long index finger?
A recent study claims that by merely looking at a man's forefinger will estimate the length of his penis.
This was published recently in the Journal of Urology, and was established by scientists in Athens, Greece. Dr. Evangelos Spyropoulos and team from the Naval and Veterans Hospital of Athens conducted their investigation to gather more information on how male genitalia size is related to body measurements.
This information will help to determine a definition as to what is "normal penile size" and therefore would help doctors in the treatment and counselling of men who are concerned about the size of their genitalia. This has been a problem in the past when dealing with young men who worry about sexual inadequacy.
In the study that was carried out, Dr Spyropoulos and team measured the length of the penis as well as testicular volume in 52 healthy young males between the ages of 19 and 38 years. These measurements were then compared with other measurements of the body including body mass index, weight, height, waist/hip ratio and index finger.
It was found that age and body measurements were not associated with the size of the genitalia apart from the index finger length which showed significant correlation with the dimensions of the flaccid, maximally stretched penis according to the report.
However, as the study group was only 52 young men it therefore indicates that a greater study with a larger number of participants is needed to confirm this data. However, there does appear to be a trend of penile length and that of the index finger.
