Scientists discover key body part can predict the size of a man’s penis – and it’s NOT your feet 0 34

IT’S a myth bandied around far too often, with many people believing that the bigger your feet, the ‘better endowed you are’.

But experts have now revealed there is a different body part that can actually represent the size of a man’s penis.

Scientists in Japan discovered that it’s actually got a lot to do with the length of your nose.

The team at the Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine said that men with larger noses had a ‘stretched penile length’ of at least 5.3 inches.

This compared to men with smaller noses, who had erect penises of 4.1inches.

In order to gather their findings, the researchers looked at 126 men within three days of death and measured their different body parts.

They took in different factors, such as the height, weight and measurements of the men’s soldiers.

In order to measure the penis, they stretched it out as far as it would go.

Scientists then compared this length to different body parts – including the feet – which had no links to the size of the penis.

Writing in the Basic and Clinical Andrology journal, the experts said: “The fact that nose size is related to SPL indicates that penile length may not be determined by age, height or body weight but has already been determined by birth.

“Although our results are useless for forensic purposes, understanding the growing process of penis or facial features may be very important for extrapolating foetal androgen levels and following male genital functions.”

All men were in their 30s and 50s and the researchers said that the size of your penis can 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 pool of people.

This means that a bigger sample would need to be tested to garner an accurate representation of penis and nose size.

While scientists busted the myth that the size of your member is down to your shoe size, one doctor recently revealed that ‘blue balls’ is actually a real condition.

The term is usually used to describe a sexual situation which doesn’t result in an orgasm.

Some men often find that the skin that covers their ball sack, turns a slightly blueish colour – which is said to happen if they have not ‘relieved’ themselves for a long time.

Australian GP, Dr Sam Hay said the issue is real, but that it is a temporary condition – with it’s medical name being epidydimal hypertension.

He explained: “I always thought blue balls was this urban myth that if you stay aroused for [too] long your balls will go blue and they’ll fall off and the only way to relieve it is to, you know, have some fun and you’ve got to get your partner to help you out with it.

“I thought it was a complete excuse for guys to get off. But it’s actually true.

“If you become aroused for a long time, you get lots of blood going down to the testicles and it increases the pressure.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 41

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
