An alternative theory

Size really does matter when it comes to fertility as a new study suggests men who are infertile are also less well endowed.

Having a shorter appendage was more common in men who were struggling to conceive than in those with other genital health problems. The research, to be presented at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine conference in Colorado this week, is the first ever to link penile length with fertility.

It found that on average, men who were infertile were around one centimetre shorter than their fertile counterparts. Those without reproductive issues had an average length of 13.4 cm while those in the infertile group were 12.5cm.

Fertility is rarely a one shot issue.

Could be that larger – up to a size, an optimal one – just gets more shots at it.

  1. Volumes relate as to the cube of the scale ratio. So a scale difference of around 7% (13.4cm vs 12.5cm) translates (assuming the bollocks are in proportion) to a 23% increase in amount delivered. Maybe there’s just a lot more of the little swimmers to score a goal!

  2. I remember when the Telegraph would have considered writing articles about how big men’s cocks were as something more suitable for the Sun or the Sunday Sport.

  3. Well it’s the averages that are 0.9cm, but it does rather bring up the question of the degree of accuracy in the measuring method

  4. Correlation of two variables A and B.

    1. A cause B.
    2. B causes A.
    3. Some other factor causes A or B.
    4. Some other factor cause both A and B.
    5. Coincidence.

    To establish which of the above requires external data.

    And if there is a causal link between two variables, there MUST be correlation. ‘On average’, is not correlation. If the relationship between length and fertility is not observed every time, then it allows for the possibility of other factors or just coincidence.
