Is Penis Size as Plain as a Nose on a Face? New Study Thinks So

The clue may be as plain as the nose on a face. Literally. "In support of the 'big nose, big hose' theory, a scientific study has found that men with larger noses do indeed have longer penises," reported the Daily Mail.

In the study published on the medical research website BMC, "scientists from the Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine did not look at why nose and penis length is linked. Instead, their observational study only found a connection between the dimensions of the body parts," wrote the DM.

"The fact that nose size is related to stretched penile length indicates that penile length may not be determined by age, height or body weight but has already been determined before birth," the researchers wrote.

"Research found men with the biggest noses have a 'stretched penile length' of at least 5.3 inches (13.42cm). However, those with less prominent sniffers have a sex organ which measures just 4.1inches (10.37cm) when fully erect."

The researchers studied the corpses of 126 middle-aged men within three days of their death. They used measurements that documented them men's height, weight, flaccid penile length, penile circumference, right and left testicular weights, and prostate weight. "A scientist was also tasked with laying each cadaver down and pulling the penis up vertically as far as it would go to get a measurement for stretched penile length. This, researchers say, is an accurate way of replicating a penis' length when erect," wrote the DM.

The research concluded that nose length was correlated to the size of a person's engorged member. The researchers found men with noses smaller than 1.8 inches had a penis size of up to 4.1 inches. Men with a nose that is 22 per cent bigger had penises that measured 5.3 inches long. And for men with noses which fall into the middle of this range, the average penis size was 4.5 inches. In Japan, the average penis size is 4.5 inches, according to previous research.

"Nose size was also documented by measuring the distance from between a person's eyes to where the nostril starts near the tip of the olfactory organ," reported the DM.

"The new study also found, unsurprisingly, a strong link between a penis's flaccid length and its erect length. However, there was no connection between the size of a man's nose and the length of his penis when soft. The researchers put this down to variability in how efficient a penis is at swelling, with some people being 'growers' and others noted 'showers'."
