A group of South Korean researchers has backed up a previous study that found a man’s nose size may correlate to his penis size.
What you need to know: The recent study conducted by Sungwoo Hong and a team of researchers from the Dr. Jomulju Urology Clinic and Mind Plastic Surgery Clinic in Seoul and the Department of Urology at the University of Ulsan College of Medicine in Ulsan, South Korea.
Key details: The research analyzed 1,160 male patients in their mid-30s by measuring their nose sizes, including length, width, height and volume, and their penises’ stretched penile length (SPL) and flaccid penile circumference. The study was conducted between March and October 2022.
They also measured the patient’s height, weight, body mass index (BMI), foot size, testicle size and testosterone levels.
What they found: In their study, the team reportedly confirmed the “positive relationship between nose size and penis length,” a finding that coincided with a similar study conducted by Japanese researchers in 2021 who analyzed corpses.
In the 2021 study, the team purportedly learned that men who have a 2.2-inch (5.58 centimeters) nose are likely to have a 5.3-inch-long (13.46 centimeters) penis, while some who had 1.8-inch (4.57 centimeters) noses had penises measuring up to 4.1-inch (10.41 centimeters) long.
Other findings: Besides nose size, the team also highlighted the importance of obesity and how it associates with penile length in their study, which they noted was “an important clue.”
“The sizes of the penis and nose increased with a decrease in BMI,” they wrote.
What they are saying: “This was an interesting study that confirmed the truth of an erstwhile myth,” the team wrote in conclusion, further noting that more research is needed to determine if it is possible to enhance penis and facial structure sizes and “the reproductive function by controlling obesity.”
