~ November 2021 ~ A doctor has taken to TikTok to confirm an old myth about determining a man’s penis size by his face – and it’s shocked many.
One doctor has revealed an age old rumour about whether or not you can tell how big a man’s penis is by his nose size is in fact true.Posting to TikTok, Dr Anthony Youn revealed the connection and said people with smaller facial features might be feeling ‘self-conscious’.
The plastic surgeon from the US told his followers that there is a significant correlation between the two measurements.
He cited a study, published in Basic and Clinical Andrology, that found those with larger noses have an average penile length of 5.3 inches (13.5 cm), whilst people with shorter noses will sit at around 4.1 inches (10.4 cm).
The study also concluded that penile length may not be determined by age, height or body weight – but actually before birth.
Dr Youn has a bit of fun with his scientific fact, claiming it would mean Marvel’s ‘The Hulk’ would have a ‘tiny wee wee’ whereas ‘Butt-Head’ from the comedy television show, Beavis and Butt-Head, would be well endowed.
The popular post was viewed more than 7.2 million times, racking up 723,400 likes.
Many of his followers agreed with the findings, with some saying that from now on, they would be paying more attention to men‘s noses.
But others were shocked, writing “no way” and “I never knew this” under his post.
A study published by the British Journal of Urology International in 2015 determined the average penis size in Australia is 5.24 inches (13.28cm).
Dr Youn’s clip comes after a British doctor revealed another way to measure a man’s member.
Dr Karan Rajan referred to a study which claims that you can measure the size of a man‘s penis by how short his index finger is.
“A shorter index finger compared to ring finger correlates to a bigger snozwaggler,” he explained in a TikTok video.
“This is known as the second to fourth digit ratio, calculated by dividing the length of the index finger by the length of the ring finger.
“The smaller the index finger, the lower the 2D 4D ratio.
“A smaller digit ratio points to high exposure to testosterone in the uterus. According to the study testosterone doesn’t just control future penis length but also future finger length.”
