Study Shows: Women Don't Want A Short, Short Man

Had to hide the exposed penises.

…And by short, short man, we’re talking both height and penis size.

I’ve been called a short man hater. But I’d like to say hate is a pretty harsh term.  In flat shoes, I’m 5’10 and in heels, which I wear on a daily basis, I’m anywhere from 6’0 to 6’3. So I will say that I have a height preference, but I’m also flexible. Now on the subject of penis size, I’ve seen big ones, I’ve seen not so big ones. But thank god, I’ve never seen a small one. My girlfriends joke about size all the time, some prefer men that won’t damage their insides because of  what they’re packing. But others want to end up with something the size of toddlers arm in their vag. Miss me with all of that.

A group of scientists in Australia thought it would be a good idea to round up a group of women and ask the questions, “Does size matter?”.  The study, lead by Brian Mautz, a postdoctoral researcher in evolution and sexual selection at the University of Ottawa,  appeared in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

105 heterosexual women, who were not told they were involved in a study, were shown life-sized computer generated video clips of naked men in their “oops that water was too cold” state.

When asked to rate images of computer-generated men, women chose taller guys with longer penises.

According the NY Daily News:

The results “directly contradict claims that penis size is unimportant to most females,” and also hint at why human males tend to have relatively larger genitalia when compared to other primates, the study said.

“Our results show that female mate choice could have played a role in the evolution of the relatively large human male penis,” the authors wrote.

“Before clothing, the nonretractable human penis would have been conspicuous to potential mates.”

The study did not get into the racial background of men and whether that may affect penis size, but it did document the ethnicity and age of the women it was studying for hints about whether penis size mattered.

More than 70 percent of the women were of European origin, 20 percent were Asian and seven percent were from elsewhere. Their average age was 26.

 

Now the racial background of the men would have been interesting. We’ve all heard size myths when it comes to men of different races. A former coworker from India always warned me against Indian men, and would joke about her husband’s small penis size. I have girlfriends  that have never dated white men occasionally inquire about the white guy myth, which I can say is definitely a myth. I’ve also had girlfriends complain that their black husbands definitely were on the smaller size. Small penises happen. It’s not the end of the world.

I’ve never heard a woman say they prefer to date short men, but I’ve seen tons of women that are taller than the man they’re with.  Unfortunately the world isn’t filled with men over 6’3, and typically, I’ve seen those men with shorter women.  Vertically challenged men aren’t going any where, and from what I hear, they tend to be pretty endowed. What they lack in height, they make up for it elsewhere (allegedly).

Penis and height semantics will always exist. I can’t fault a woman for their preference, because we know men have a billion of them when it comes to a woman’s body type.  I think it’s best to not let yourself be defined by them.

Clutchettes, does size matter that much when it comes to a potential companion?

    it is what it is. The study is interesting cuz it seeks to explain how we ended up having the largest genitalia in comparison to body size of all animals, the evolution of women choosing larger penises possibly being the reason for this. I find it funny how defensive ya’ll get about this and how everyone wants to rationalize or pretend it’s something other than it is. There is an OVERWHELMING consensus amongst a HUGE majority of women that they prefer taller men with penises on the upper end of average. People who say otherwise are either the rare exception to the rule, or generally are just being considerate of insecure men and telling a white lie to do so. Which is actually a very kind thing to do and is a good way to be, but even those women secretly tell the guy with a 7 1/2-8 1/2 inch and 5 1/2-6 1/2 girth that he’s perfect and just what they want. But keep the white lie going, we are stuck with whatever we have for life and it’s really mean to say things like the short man song. fucked up.

    You have to be delusional if you think men don’t pick apart women’s bodies the way this essay has man’s dimensions. Just look at Playboy all the measurements are given 36-25-35 etc.
    I can only speak for myself. I loved a man greatly who was not greatly endowed. I have never known a more ambitious and intellectual man. It didn’t work. He runs a hedge fund.
    I lost a boyfriend a musician to alcoholism. He died on his 43rd birthday. I died when I first slept with him. I guess I am saying men have locker room talk. They look hello? It’s the amount of attention they give. The Hedge fund guy couldn’t be bothered. The musician well he played me like a Stradivarious.

    Tall men don’t necessarily have longer penises, the two are not correlated at all.
