Hey dudes, you heard it here first: The size of your penis doesn’t matter.
Just kidding, sorry. It matters. However, the length of your junk is far less relevant than the girth, according to a new study about the difference between a woman’s desires in a one-night stand penis and in a relationship penis.
In both scenarios, women opted for a penis that was 6.5 inches in length because any longer would probably bruise the cervix and then everybody involved would just be uncomfortable. For one night stands, women preferred penises with slightly larger girths than those they preferred for relationships.
Since vaginas are super sensitive to stretching sensations, women are more likely to enjoy a penis with a girth that offers maximum stretching capabilities.
Larger girths might also bring the clitoris closer to the vagina during sex, a move that Cosmo would approve of to help a woman achieve orgasm.
I honestly don’t understand the discrimination between one-night stands and relationships here because, speaking as a woman, I’d probably want the same quality penis in both a hookup and a boyfriend. I digress, though.
The study, which was conducted at UCLA’s Sexual Psychophysiology and Affective Neuroscience Laboratory, was unique because researchers used 3-D printed models of penises when asking women which ones they preferred.
While past studies show a lot of mixed opinions on the importance of size, they mainly relied on images or general words like “small,” “medium” and “large,” so the 3-D models offered more variety and realness.
Additionally, women were actually able to hold the penises in their hand and feel for themselves what they liked best.
In the next part of the experiment, women handled one of the 3-D penises for 30 seconds before depositing it in a bin of 33 other 3-D models. The women were then asked to retrieve the same one, either right after it was mixed in or 10 minutes later.
After the 10 minute period, women were less accurate in their retrieval, tending to remember their model larger than it actually was. This should reassure men not to get enhancement surgary because, apparently, skewed memories virtually do it for them.
Don’t sweat it, men. The key to a woman’s heart lies not in the largeness of your penis but in your ability to make her feel special. A large penis helps, though.
