Where do you people come up with this shit????? There is no correlation between the penis and any other body part. Science has proved this one over and over again. Give it a rest have to have the cahones to ask for a peek to verify a man's claim of shoe size...thumb size or Hemi engine can dictate the size of the penis. LMAO.
I have the smallest gd hands I know of and my thumb equals a 7.5 length penis according you your theory....sorry....that 's NOT average in America!

I don't know about that, my thumb is about 4 inches long, my penis is 2.2.3 inches long....but now, my tongue, well nevermind, you didn't say anything about that.

The average thumb is 2.5 to 2.75 inches meaning the average penis is 7.5 to 8.25 inches.

I'm not sure of this statistic.

As for me I have a 3 inch thumb, unfortunately my penis is 1.75 times the length of my thumb.

That means I have known 2 guys with below average thumbs

So, I must have long thumbs. Because my penis is nowhere near 3 times as long as my thumbs.

And god, I am glad that it is not. 8 inches of penis has proven to be too long for most of the women I have known, I would hate to carry a 9.5 incher around. I bet women just look at something like that and scream.

So, whoever made this measurement up must have been faced with a bunch of guys will 2 inch thumbs.

Its possible, considering the average male penis is 6 inches in length...a thumb is about two inches give of take, then 3x 2 =...exactly. In my case my thumb is 2.5 inches and my penis 8. So yeah, beat it this one...just like i beat my meat HIYO!!!

I have heard this one quite a bit actually, and no matter how bemusing it may seem when you guys pull out your ruler and do not quite measure up. (which most of you will not considering the fact that the average male's thumb measures in at approximately 2.5-3.5 inches, which means that the average males penis would measure in at 7.5-10.5 inches, and believe me when I tell you that is no where near average, you will often hear that 6 inches is the average, but it is typically in between 5-6 inches.) With that said, this statement has been discredited several times, just as the shoe size and nose length have been as well. Although this is very amusing to say around men with short stubby fingers, it remains unproven, and to be honest it probably applies more often to men with short stubby fingers than those with long digits. Thanks for reading, have a great day. :)
