It’s a myth that has circulated for years, and now scientists have finally revealed whether there’s any link between foot size and penis size.
Speaking to businessinsider, Dr Jill McDevitt, resident sexologist at CalExotics, said:
Penis size is not correlated with or predicted by shoe size or any other body part for that matter. It is determined by a combination of genetics and environmental factors, mostly in utero.
A 1993 study found a very slight correlation between larger feet and longer penises, they noted that the relationship was so weak that “foot size would not serve as practical estimators of penis length.”
Another study of 104 men published in the British Journal of Urology International in 2002 also found no statistically significant correlation between penis length and shoe size. “the size or characteristics of body extremities is not enough to predict the penile size.“
Further research published in the journal Human Andrology compared the body measurements of 1,000 men with their penis lengths. This study also found a positive connection between penis length and girth, but did not identify any significant relationship between penis length and the size of any other body part.
The data suggests that you can’t tell how large someone’s penis is by looking at any other body part.
