The old canard about the size relation of one’s hands and feet to the length one’s penis has long been dispelled by competent experts. But researchers in South Korea say there may be a direct relationship between finger length and the longitude of one’s manhood.
According to researchers at Gachon University in Incheon, the inverse ratio of a man’s index finger to that of his ring finger is a dependable way to determine penile span.
Reporting last week in the Asian Journal of Andrology, Dr. Tae Beom Kim, a urologist, and colleagues studied 144 men age 20 and over. (The men were undergoing urological surgery for conditions having nothing to do with penis length.)
The subjects’ right index and ring fingers were measured for length prior to surgery. The subjects’ penis length was measured immediately after the subject was given anesthesia; length was measured while the penis was flaccid and after it had been stretched to its maximum protractedness.
(According to the researchers, the stretched length of one’s member is believed to correlate to its erect length.)
The researchers reported that, generally, the lower the ratio of the measure of both fingers, the longer was the penis’ stretched length.
If you’re tickled by the Korean “finger formula,” you’re not alone: a number of studies have concluded that the ratio of a man’s finger lengths is a function of exposure to the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone, pre-birth. Research suggests that the portion of one’s male anatomy could likewise be so determined.
More finger food for thought: Research from the University of Vienna found that males with the lower index-to-ring-finger ratio have more symmetrical faces and are more attractive to females; something called the “sexy ratio.” In 2010, British researchers from Warwick University and the Institute of Cancer Research found that a man’s risk for prostate cancer is also related to his ratio between the two digits: men with index fingers longer than their ring fingers were one-third less likely to develop prostate cancer.
