IT’S a myth that goes around far too often, with many people believing that the bigger your feet are, the better off you are.
But experts have now revealed that there is another body part that can represent the size of a man’s penis.
Scientists in Japan found that it actually has a lot to do with the length of your nose.
The team at the Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine said men with larger noses had a “stretched penis length” of at least 5.3 inches.
This compared to men with smaller noses, who had erect penises measuring 4.1 inches.
To compile their findings, the researchers looked at 126 men within three days of their death and measured their various body parts.
They took into account several factors, such as the height, weight and size of the male soldiers.
To measure the penis, they stretched it out as far as possible.
Scientists then compared this length to several body parts — including the feet — that were unrelated to penis size.
The experts wrote in the journal Basic and Clinical Andrology: “The fact that nose size is related to SPL indicates that penis length may not be determined by age, height or body weight, but is already determined by birth.
“While our results are useless for forensic purposes, understanding the growth process of penis or facial features may be very important for extrapolating fetal androgen levels and tracking male genital function.”
All the men were between 30 and 50, and the researchers said the size of your penis may also be an indicator of your age.
It’s important to note that this study was just done on Japanese men and was from a small group of people.
This means that a larger sample would need to be tested to get an accurate representation of penis and nose size.
As scientists debunk the myth that your member size has to do with your shoe size, a doctor recently revealed that “blue balls” is actually a real condition.
The term is usually used to describe a sexual situation that does not lead to orgasm.
Some men often find that the skin covering their scrotum turns a light blue color – which would happen if they haven’t ‘defecate’ for a long time.
Australian GP, Dr. Sam Hay, said the problem is real, but it’s a temporary condition — medically called epidydimal hypertension.
He explained, “I always thought blue balls were this urban myth that if you stay excited for… [too] long your balls will turn blue and fall off and the only way to light it is to have, you know, have some fun and you have to get your partner to help you with it.
“I thought it was a complete excuse for guys to get out. But it’s true.
“When you get excited for a long time, you get a lot of blood to the testicles and it increases the pressure.
“And if you don’t… [ejaculate] then that pressure becomes painful… I’ve found there’s research to prove it exists.”
He stressed that the pain will go away, and if it doesn’t, you should seek medical advice as it could be related to another problem.
