Johannesburg — A year-old Ugandan man is fighting for his life following an incident in which his drunk wife cut off his penis after he allegedly denied her sex because of her alcoholic and abusive behaviour. Moses Okot, from Amun Village in Apac district in the north of Uganda, said he had fallen asleep after returning home from hunting when a sudden pain woke him up. After waking up he found his pants wet with blood and his penis cut off, the Daily Monitor reported on Thursday.
What makes a penis attractive? Not sure? Well, don't rely on your opinion to answer that question — science has the answer.
The research, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, has found that women who prefer longer penises are more likely to have vaginal orgasms, but not clitoral orgasms. The study questioned three hundred and twenty-three women about their sexual behaviour over the past month. Women who prefer deeper penile—vaginal stimulation are more likely to have vaginal orgasm.
Back to Sexual health. But research suggests that most men underestimate the size of their pride and joy. Man has always placed great importance on the size of his penis. Many cultures associate penis size with masculinity.
A new study has revealed that women prefer a slightly larger penis in a one-time sexual partner compared to a long-term partner. In total, 75 women, ages 18 to 65, took part in the study. When asked to select the model which represented their preferred penis size in a long-term partner, the average response was 6.
Penis size matters mainly because we think it does. The famous sexuality researchers, Masters and Johnson, say that penis size has no physical effect on female sexual satisfaction. Russell Eisenman's research into women's perceptions of sexual satisfaction considered penis size and width.
Research shows that some penises are, regardless of size, considered better-looking than other penises. Fortunately, women seem more forgiving when it comes to penis appearance than men are. However, they rated overall genital appearance and manicured pubic hair as the most important factors. Broadly speaking, this seems to indicate that women are interested in proportionality and upkeep.
Conceived and designed the experiments: NP GM. Women recalled model size accurately using this method, although they made more errors with respect to penis length than circumference. These first estimates of erect penis size preferences using 3D models suggest women accurately recall size and prefer penises only slightly larger than average.
Writing in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences a journal commonly known by its initials as PNASBrian MautzBob WongRichard Peters and Michael Jennions use a clever experimental manipulation of computer-generated imagery - CGI - to test the effects of variation in penis size relative to height and torso shape shoulder width relative to waist width on the attractiveness of male bodies to women. While they found that torso shape was by far the most important determinant of attractiveness, penis size has about as much influence on attractiveness as height. And yet for such a tabloid-ready topic, the paper itself is a study in how science should proceed in sober and restrained steps.
