Icon84 Foot size equals penis size. Myth or reality?

You know that argument some have, that a man's foot size is directly related to the size of his nether regions? That argument that would suggest that a fellow wearing a size 11 boot would be directly proportional in inches in the bedroom. Or that argument that black men are the more well-endowed race, and the Asians the least?

I find it amusing that the article is in the "All Woman" section.

I never believed the one about feet. But I do know that the finger length and thickness has always been a very good indicator as to the size of his willy.

Foot size, finger length, hand size, they might coincidentally give you an indication, but I can tell you right now they are not a foolproof method of determining anything.

if the feet thing is/was true... then maybe it'd be the same for women... so take maybe 2 or 3 sizes from the guy's shoe and then you get the equivalent lady's shoe. next thing you do, wander around town, looking at the ground and guessing shoe sizes... example

guy is size 8

sees a girl with size 2 feet
he's like "nooooooooo, dear god no, i'd not fit"

girl with size 10
he's like " nooooooooo, dear god no.... i'd not fit either"

and then he sees one, size 5 feet
he's like "awesome! yeah! woah"

and he taps her feet a bit, they go home... live happily ever after. solves alot of problems. as long as neither has had foot surgery to make them different sizes.

and if a guy's right or left is bigger than his other foot... does that mean it bends a bit to the side?

That would make a great variation on the Cinderella story, and liven up a few boring pantomimes.

"Whoever's fadge this slipper fits shall be my bride, declared the Prince!
The ugly sisters insisted on trying the slipper up their muffs, but they both had welly tops
Then Cinderella tried fitting the slipper up her minge. It was a perfect fit."

Jeff Foxworthy made a joke on those kind of things. He basically said that he hopes that a person with long feet, hands, or whatever was really well hung because that would be a real goofy looking person...

Really, I think people are fantasizing about something they cannot externally see (endowment) by comparing it to something they can see in public and not be embarrassed about seeing. Of course it is always based on the idea that someone who is really large is:

1) Related to any other physical trait of a person.
2) The only factor to a female that is important and will make mind blowing sex. Enough woman have honestly told me that that it is nonsense (and no they didn't see mine before or after saying that either).

Well obviously the longer and heavier your schlong is, the longer your feet have to be to achieve stability It's simple physics. If you had a huge percy and tiny feet you'd just fall over.

Of course you could learn something from the work of crane engineers and stick a counterweight up your bum.

I wear size 14 shoes (48 European) and can verify that this is not true.

1998 Ig Nobel winner Jerald Bain of Mt. Sinai Hospital in Toronto and Kerry Siminoski of the University of Alberta have answered this question in their report "The Relationship Among Height, Penile Length, and Foot Size." [Published in "Annals of Sex Research," vol. 6, no. 3, 1993, pp.
231-5.

From the report link:

Quote:
While comparing height, foot size and penile length, Bain said the relationship was minimal. "We found a weak correlation," he said and added this ratio should not be used by anyone to assess the size of a man's penis.

He must have been really, really bored. Of course in Monsieur Jacolliet's day there was no television or radio, and everyone needs a hobby.

ETA. I picture him walking up to complete strangers:

"Pardonnez mois monsieur, but what shoe size do you take?"

"Er... an eight. Why?"

"Merci beaucoup. May I measure your cock sil vous plait?"

If that's true, than Adrien Brody and Owen Wilson and must have very full dance cards.

FWIW, one of my ex beaus had a huge honker, and it was...proportionate. The next beau was even more blessed by nature, but had one of those dinky little noses that was so small I could never understand how he could breathe through it.

Don't feel bad Johnny--Dh stands 6'2 with size 12 feet and he can't claim this myth either ... I think I would call him "just slightly less than average size" (which, incidentally, what is average now?)...

Unfortunately, he can't even use his middle finger as a gauge either (I don't think, I've not said "Hey hun, get hard and measure your penis to your middle finger"--that's just not my idea of foreplay)...
