NCBI ROFL: Does ass size correlate with penis length? The answer may surprise you!

Can physique and gluteal size predict penile length in adult Nigerian men?

“In Nigeria, especially among the Igbo tribe, there is a well-held belief that a man’s penile size can be predicted from his physique and the size of his buttocks, with people of small physique and flat buttocks likely to have long penile lengths… Stretched penile length was measured in 115 men between the ages of 30-65 years and its correlation with the body-mass index and the circumference of the hip as measured around the most prominent points on their buttocks, was statistically determined… The supposed relationship between penile length and gluteal size may have a scientific basis, but contrary to belief, large buttocks is more predictive of longer penile length than small buttocks. Penile length has no relationship to physique.”

    "large buttocks is more predictive of longer penile length than small buttocks."

    …meaning: The most masculine of men are the biggest a..holes?

  • The Brontosaurus

    no. buttock /= asshole.

  • Mer

    Well, it depends on whether asshole diameter is positively correlated with buttock size…

  • The Brontosaurus

    In any event, correlation /= causation.

    And there I was looking at their feet!

    If foot size is an indicator, clowns must be VERY well endowed.

    Let’s be logical. In a tribe, the day to day strength requirements will be more comparable across a study, therefore variance will depend more on fat composition than muscularity. If a butt is larger it is likely to be consistent with a fuller figured more sedentary males and penis size will be smaller due to imposing fat deposits. Face it: you have one or you don’t, but fatties just make it worse for themselves.

    For successful anterior penetration (not face-to-face) with steatopygous females, a longer penis would be required. It would be likely that the males would also be steatopygous.
