A few months ago, I was on a bit of an evolutionary biology reading kick (highly, highly, highly recommend reading Sex at Dawn, hands down one of the most entertaining, informative, and thought-provoking books I’ve read in the past year– make that several years, actually). Between a well-delivered fun fact about gorilla testicle size while cabbing it downtown on a New York Saturday night and a gem of a map that I stumbled upon just now and have to share, I’ve got evolutionary biology on the brain again.
The following world map gives a breakdown of the world according to penis size. I am in no way commenting on the importance of said measurements and do not want to read too much into the underlying tones of this dick waving contest as a pretext for global politics, but hey, it’s science!
Korea, my former country of residence, ranks the lowest, coming in at at average of 3.9 inches and confirming the wisdom learned from a Filipino whore last spring. In the Philippines, among sex workers, Korean men are often referred to as “3x3x3s.” 3 inches, 3 minutes, 3,000 pesos.
And if you are into, ya know, the more well-endowed, it might be another reason to go seek out a Latin lover (hmm… do I sense a forthcoming chapter on “how Lindsey got her groove back?”). But whatever you do, keep it safe, kids.
