Foot size equals penis size. Myth or reality?

YOU know that argument some have, that a man's foot size is directly related to the size of his nether regions? That argument that would suggest that a fellow wearing a size 11 boot would be directly proportional in inches in the bedroom? Or that argument that black men are the more well-endowed race, and the Asians the least?

Those who believe it are prepared to swear by it, and those who don't, cite good sense as reason to doubt.

But what is the truth? In fact, research has managed to deflate a few of the myths about male genitalia - including that penis size varies according to race. Recent research, conducted by Drs Kevan Wylie and Ian Eardley of the Porterback Clinic and Royal Hallamshire Hospital in the United Kingdom, detailed in the British Journal of Urology (BJU) International, showed that race was not found to be a factor in penis size at all.

But then, Louis Jacolliet, a 19th century French writer who spent three decades investigating penis size, said: "In no branch of the human race are the male organs more developed than in the African Negro."

Sexologist Alfred Kinsey went into more detail about size in one of his reports, stating that the average white male has a penis measuring 6.2 inches long and 3.7 inches around, whereas the average black male has a penis 6.3 by 3.8 inches. When it came to flaccid length, however, blacks fared a little better: 4.3 inches long, versus 4.0 inches for white males.

So who do you believe?

The BJU had another UK study published, that concluded that the size of a man's penis does not correlate to his shoe size despite popular opinion. Researchers measured the foot size of men who wear size eight through 13 shoes and compared the foot size to the size of the men's penises, according to the report. There was no obvious correspondence, and the correlation was said to have no scientific basis.

Notwithstanding, there are women who firmly believe that there is a correlation. And who are we to argue? Some women, albeit a small minority, also believe that penis size is also correlated to a man's finger length or hand span.

all woman took to the streets of Ocho Rios to get your views on whether a man's shoe size determines his penis size.

Dhaina:

I believe it's false. I,ve been with men where the shoes are small and down there is not that small.

Yvette:

No, because I went the extra mile and tried to prove it and it's not so, not in all cases

Sherene:

That's not true because I've seen them and I tried to match them up. Sometimes you have big, really large feet and a small penis, and sometimes you have the opposite.

Viviene:

I don't believe it's true. Everybody is God's creation, everyone is unique and its impossible for all men who wear a size seven shoes to have a size seven-inch penis.

Paulette:

I do believe this because of experience. I've heard about it and I've always looked out for it and it seems to be true.
