From baby ultrasounds to movie theaters, 3D tech now serves a new purpose: helping scientists discover the perfect penis size.
In the latest study to investigate this classic issue, a group of researchers from the University of California in Los Angeles and the University of New Mexico printed 33 3D models representing different penis sizes. They then asked women to choose what they consider the perfect size—one for a long-term partner and one for a one-night stand.
The study showed an interesting kink: Women's preferences differ according to the kind of relationship—but just a bit. For long-term partners, the average size that women want measures 6.3 inches long and 4.8 inches around. For a one night stand, the perfect length is 6.4 inches with a circumference of 5 inches.
To put in context, the average penis size of Pinoys only measures around 4.2 inches (Read: Countries To Visit, By Penis Size). (Maaaan.)
In addition to the size, the participants also completed a memory test that assessed how much they can recall the penis models they picked. Interestingly, they were better at remembering the correct girth rather than the length. Regarding this, one of the researchers had this to say: "One possible explanation is that women care more about circumference, so they may attend to it more."
What does this tell us? Even if you're just at 4.3 inches, if it's, erm, chubby, you're still good in the eyes of women.
