17 April 2013

Friedrich Nietzsche once said, "Battle not with monsters, lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you."
Today The Daily Quota ventures into deep, dark, and sensitive territory. We employ scientific method, quantitative and qualitative data and an open mind to tackle one of the big questions;
Does size matter?

Last month, ANU researchers from the School of Biology tackled the issue of what women find most attractive in men

They used three variables and got women to assess their attractiveness from 1 to 7 - body shape (shoulder to waist ratio), height and penis size (flaccid)Of those three variables, there were 7 sizes and/or types. 
So basically, 7  body types x 7 heights x 7 penis sizes = 343 different combinations.

Then, they digitally created 343 male humanoids, and got the women to rank them from life-sized projections. These 343 combinations basically covered 95% of the male population.

Unsurprisingly, body shape ranked significantly higher than the other two in what women find most attractive. Boys, start hitting those swimming lanes!
However, height and penis size were almost equal in their importance. Even scarier, although penis size did experience diminishing marginal returns with every centimetre added, it never really dipped, or even plateaued...*gulp*.
So yep, size does officially matter.

Cheeky, controversial and somewhat demoralizing.
Sounds like my sex life.

Today's Daily Quota is a 10-minute summary of the findings from the head of the ANU School of Biology, Professor Michael Jennions.
