Men with long noses DO have larger penises, scientists confirm
Men with long noses really do have bigger penises, a new study shows.
The bigger the horn, the longer their manhood.
Scientists think it’s due to exposure to higher levels of testosterone in the womb.
The hormone is known to play a key role in the formation of both the nose and genitals in baby boys.
The research, conducted by a team at Ulsan University Hospital in South Korea, supports a 2021 Japanese study that found that men with a nose 4.5 cm (1.7 in) long had an average non-erect penis of 10 cm (4 inches).

But those with a 5.5 cm (2.1 in) muzzle had an average penis size of 13.4 cm – or well over five inches.
The latest probe, published in Translational Andrology and Urology, also shows that men with big feet are more likely to have penises with a larger girth – as testosterone also regulates limb formation in the womb.
For years, anecdotal evidence has suggested that men with large hands, feet, or noses were blessed in the pants department.
Some research has suggested that a long ring finger also indicates a larger pack.
For the latest study, researchers recruited 1,160 men in their 30s and measured their nose size compared to their non-erect penis size.
Nose size was determined by the length from the corner of the eye to the bottom of each nostril.
The results showed that most of the recruits had a flaccid member between 2 and 10 inches long and 2.5 inches in circumference.
But their masculinity was much more impressive when they also had a big nose.
Researcher Dr Sungwoo Hong said: ‘Nose size is an important indicator of penis size.
And penile girth increased with foot size.
“Several studies have suggested that hormone exposure in the prenatal period influences the growth of reproductive organs.”
