The reason I brought up race is that average “penis size” is too generic. I firmly believe that the average penis size for Asians is not the same as say people with African heritage background.
It’s funny you mentioned about “height.” Just yesterday I was in a mall looking at the crowds. I saw many White guys over 6’ tall, and many Asians guy under 5’8 (very few over 6’). I was thinking to myself: As much as I don’t want to think that height is somewhat correlated to “penis size”, it just doesn’t make sense in evolutionary speaking. If being proportion is the key, then guys who are taller and bigger should have a better chance of having a larger penis. I am pretty confident that guys who are over 6’ should have, “on average”, larger penis than guys who are below 5’7 (even if there is the tiniest positive correlation between the two variables).
Since Asians, on average, are shorter and smaller than Whites and Blacks, the “height-ism” hypothesis still make sense. It’s just worded in a nicer way.. LOL
There isn’t anything really *wrong* with your theory, however, you have to take into account that the variation in height isn’t really particularly significant. For instance, let us assume that height and penis size were perfectly correlated. We know that this is not the case, of course.
However, the difference between a man who is 5’10, or roughly average to slightly above average, and one who is 6’5, or exceedingly tall, as in within the top 5%, is only 10%. 70 inches, vs 77 inches.
So the penis length would be only 10% greater as well. If the average were 5.1 inches NBPEL, then these very tall guys who are 6’5, are only 5.6 inches NBP.
I agree that the temptation to seek proportionality between body size and penis size is strong - what person can’t appreciate the aesthetic beauty of such an arrangement? We have an innate attraction for proportionality , the golden ratio, and this is what informs so much of our sensibility and makes possible our art, and our architecture and music. But, often our aesthetic sense is best satisfied by proportions which while ideal, simply do not occur (or very often) in nature. And that is what makes them unusually striking.
But clearly with penis size, it just isn’t keying just off height, since the correlation with height is so weak.
