Science Reveals The Perfect Penis!

In a study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine a group of Swiss researchers asked the following question: “What is a Good Looking Penis? How Women Rate the Penile Appearance of Men with Surgically Corrected Hypospadias”.
Yes, for some reason these eggheads decided to only ask women. But regardless, this is the first time that penile aesthetics have been studied in a truly scientific forum. And they weren’t just perving out, either: the study was part of a larger project to focus on a congenital penis defect known as hypospadias, in which the opening of the urethra falls on the underside of the penis.
Researchers were keen to know what penile aspects were important to women and whether they thought men who had undergone surgically corrected hypospadias had “abnormal” looking penises.
They asked 105 women to rank the importance of eight penile aspects on a 5-point scale ranging from very unimportant (1) to very important (5). These aspects included length, girth and position and shape of urinary opening known as the meatus. Researchers also asked about the shape of glans and penile skin, scrotum, pubic hair, and general “cosmetic” appearance. What general cosmetic appearance means is anyone’s guess, but it’s probably best not to google ‘ugly scrotum’ if you’re trying to find out.
The findings suggest that women find general cosmetic appearance the most important aspect, while position and shape of the meatus are considered the least important aspect of penile appearance. Contrary to the cliche about size, length was only rated as the sixth most important aspect, girth was rated third, and pubic hair was rated second. However, the study was small, so it’s difficult to generalize the findings.
Overall, when trying to figure out what makes a penis perfect, researchers found there was “no single penile aspect that is essential.”
