Myths Behind Penis Size & Height

by Nick Swanson

One of the Holy Grails for many men is an increase in their penis size. But the fact is that there are so many myths out there about penis size that even knowing what can influence overall size is hard to figure out. Penis enlargement is something that you may end up wanting to pursue, but first you might want to learn more about penis size and height relations and just what kind of impact they have on one another. The facts may surprise you.

Myths Behind Penis Size & Height

There’s a longstanding myth that things like finger length, shoe size, and overall height of a guy actually serve as a way to determine what his penis size is. The saying goes that the taller a man is, the larger his penis is. The truth is that this isn’t really accurate at all. In fact, there’s really nothing that can predict length and size of penis. Even the size of a flaccid penis has little to do with the size of the penis when it is erect.

However, there is one study that is sometimes cited as proof that this relationship exists. It’s an Italian study that was performed primarily to compare stretched flaccid penis length with erect penis size. In the midst of this study, some figures were released that suggested a relationship between a man’s height and their penis size existed. But this aspect of the study only looked at 500 men, and overall proof was minor and isn’t regarded as scientific.

There is one aspect of a man’s height that could influence at least the perception of penis size. Height and even weight could impact the appearance of the penis. The taller or heavier a man is, the more it may influence his penis’ look when compared to the rest of his body. Fitter, trimmer men often seem to have larger penises simply because of the comparison of them to their body.

It’s important to note that some male enhancement products can offer a bit of a boost to penis enlargement results or at least to erection size. They may be worth buying if you’re concerned about the size of your penis. But it’s important to understand that just because of one’s height or weight, that doesn’t mean that their penis size is associated with their body type. This is largely a myth that continues to be believed despite a lack of evidence supporting it.
