'Mzansi men don't measure up to African brothers'

MANHOOD: 'When it comes to penis size, men from the Congo are bigger than all the rest'

A controversial new Penis Size Study purportedly conducted in 113 countries sets out to show 'who comes out on top' - when erect.

At the top of the list is the Democratic Republic of the Congo, whose men boasted an average of 7.1 inches.

Closely following them were Ecuadorians at 7.0 inches, Ghanaians at 6.8 inches; and Colombians at 6.7 inches.

In Europe, Italians were at the top of the list, with 6.2 inches.

South African men came in at 6 inches.

Next was Greece, at 5.8 inches and Germany at 5.7 inches. Britons measured in at 5.5 inches, beating out the French, who measured 5.3 inches.

Australia came in at 5.2 inches, and America came in at 5 inches.

Rounding out the list were North and South Korea, who both measure, on average, 3.8 inches.

But the study is not without its share of controversy – and not just because of the subject matter itself.

The paper was written by Richard Lynn, who mainly based the information from his study on a website. The website had ostensibly collected data on penis size from 113 countries, but it had not been verified by academics. Lynn is a professor emeritus at Ulster University in Northern Ireland and is a controversial figure in science, particularly due to his thesis which claimed that certain races have evolved to be more intelligent than others.

Jelte Wicherts, a professor of methodology at the Netherlands’ Tilburg University, said to The Sunday Times, “This is a brave paper in a controversial area but the data has no methodology and Lynn’s paper should not have been published”.

Penis size seems to be a bit of a preoccupation for men, causing a healthy industry that claims to have various methods of enlarging the male organ. Interestingly though, there is a significant number of men who claim to have small penises but are in fact quite normally endowed. Penile enhancements can come with a host of complications and side effects.

Richard Lynn’s study will be published in the journal Personality and Individual Difference.

Republic of Congo - 7.1

this study is biase..there are different ethenic groups of people in SA. i think i am not properly represented there and my actual size has been averaged because the study represents the majority while i come from a small group of South Africans. South Africa should conduct it own research and group it per provinces, then you will se the true indications................. by the way my group comes from Congo,heheheheheheheh

The last time me and my friends compared penis sizes I was fourteen . It premature to worry about penis size at the age of fortytwo>I have children and a lot of all other things to be concerned about.Example saving for my children s education , saving for my retirement all the important thing that I can influence and change . There is nothing you can do about your penis size , yes you can be worried if ti does not function , what is the purpose of it if it is big but it does not function . I am happy with my size because the erection is still stronger , but most of the bigger ones are flaccid so what s the big deal
