Science Proves That Size Matters, Women Everywhere Say “Duh”

A scientific study released on Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS…seriously), reveals what every woman in the world already knew — penis size matters! And just how much? According to the study, when it comes to attraction, penis size is just as important to women as the height of their partner. Which makes sense because I can tell you how many times I’ve heard a woman say, “I am just really attracted to short guys with small packages.” Never ever.

The study went on to explain that women prefer “showers” vs “growers” and I have to say, I disagree with my fellow ladies on this one! There is something so endearing about sleeping with a guy who is a “grower”, it’s like you’re in on his not-so-little secret. Plus, I can’t be the only one who finds a ginormous flaccid penis a bit disturbing?

While the study doesn’t provide any new news, it provides women across the world with some sort of validation and eases any guilt we’ve ever felt about dumping that one guy who was less than impressive downstairs. It’s science, sorry. But it’s also just one piece of the attraction puzzle.

If you’re a great guy-good looking, funny, accomplished and respectful but just so happen to be on the small end of the penis size spectrum, women are still going to want to date you, make out with you and have sex with you, don’t worry! Chances are, if a girl doesn’t want to see you again after checking out the goods, it’s for reasons other than your package measurements. Trust me, when a woman really likes you, she’ll make it work with whatever size you’re bringing to the table, despite what the latest scientific study says she should be worried about.

So yes, penis size matters…but it’s not the only thing that matters, by far. Instead of worrying about how large your package is, put your measuring sticks away and focus your energy on using what you’ve got to the best of your ability. It’s not the size of the boat, it’s the motion of the ocean that matters, gentleman. Being born with a huge penis doesn’t guarantee that a guy will be amazing in bed whatsoever, and plenty of women have had the best sex of their lives with men who are lacking in the size department. Does it mean that you might have to work a little harder to please your woman? Maybe or maybe not, but I’ve never heard a woman complain that a guy was working “too hard” to make sure she was feeling good.

When it comes to dating and sex, it’s not just having a huge package that is the most important…it’s being the total package that will ensure you’ll score, every single time.
