Understanding Your Body: Finger Length Ratio predicts Penis Length!
July 6, 2011
JULY 4, 2011 – Finally… researchers in Korea think that they found the long awaited proof: finger length can predict penis length! Korean researchers at the In Ho Choi of Gacheon University Gil Hospital, have presented results in a sample of urological patients which indicate that in men with a low ’2D:4D finger ratio‘ more often is featured with a long phallus (compared to men with a high ‘digit ratio’).
The researchers from Korea found that the ratio between the pointer finger & ring figner (2nd and 4th digits) on men’s right hand correlate to the length of his flaccid and stretched phallus (not errected). A lower index-to-ring finger length ratio indicates a longer (stretched) penis.
NOTICE: The table below is taken from the scientific article; it e.g. illustrates that likewise results were found for body length and penis length – for the ‘flaccid condition’ the result for body height were slightly higher than for the 2D:4D digit ratio, but in the ‘stretched condition’ finger length ratio was a better predictor for penis length!
The key to this relationship between penis size & finger length likely lies in the womb, a team member added:
“During the fetal period, high concentrations of testosterone lead to high testicular activity, resulting in a lower digit ratio, in the present study, patients with a lower digit ratio tended to have a longer stretched penile length.”
The researchers also added that the length of the stretched and flaccid penis does show “a strong correlation” with an erect penile length.
The Korean report was published on july 4 in the Asian Journal of Andrology, and the scientific article is available at Nature.com.
NO SURPRIZING RESULTS!
Actually, the Korean results are not surprizing at all. Because British professor John Manning had already pointed out in his second book ‘The Finger Book‘ (2008) that a study in the Naval and Veteran’s Hospital of Athens (Greece, 2002) had pointed out that the length of the index finger correlates with the length, glans & volume of the penis.
Manning commented (in ‘The Finger Book’):
“Spyropoulos and his collegues did not measure the remaining fingers, so we cannot be sure of their relationship to penis length. My guess is that they would have found the ring finger the strongest predictor, and that long ring fingers in relation to index fingers would be associated with longer penises.”
So, the 2011 Korean study shows ‘finger professor’ John Manning was right… again!
