Why don't penis size correlation myths die off?
Why do so many men AND women think that there is a correlation between some body part and/or race and penis size? It is incredibly widespread. I don’t think I’ve met a single person (who this has been discussed with) that didn’t think that big feet/big hands/height/race had a direct effect on dick size. You would think that if something isn’t true it would eventually become apparent to many people. Now for men it’s slightly different because most of us don’t really see what other guys are packing, but you would think that most women would know that there isn’t a correlation. I know I’m generalizing as there are probably many who do know this, but I know I haven’t met one yet. Every girl that has ever talked to me about penis size has said that something correlates with it, I’ve gotten everything from the usual to things like finger thickness = bigger girth, bigger thumb = bigger penis, and longer big toe = bigger penis.
I now know that this is all ridiculous, but growing up it really affected me. Now I always knew I wasn’t small from researching, and that I was actually upper average/above average in length, but I had small hands, small feet, and wasn’t not too tall (at least compared to my friends). So it made me think that everyone with bigger hands or feet than me was way bigger than me, and given my size this meant they had to be like 8 or 9. This meant there had to be a LOT of people way bigger than me which completely confused me. After reading up on it and actually hearing from people here about the lack of any correlation it has made me realize how stupid it all is. But still, it makes me wonder why the rumors perpetuate, why don’t they just die off if they aren’t true? I still hear them all the time from close friends, or just people I’m talking to and I just force myself not to start ranting about the matter. Now I worry less because I know the truth, but I still worry because I know people think this way so they look at me and my small hands and feet and think I must have a very small dick. I guess I’ll just have to do a lot of PE and sport a huge bulge to confuse the hell outta them. :)
