A new study has looked at whether or not size really matters in the bedroom. You may have heard the saying “it’s not the size, it’s what you do with it”; well, this study has put that theory to the test to see if it’s true.
New study investigates whether or not size really matters in the bedroom
Researchers at King’s College London enlisted the help of 12 couples and gave the men a variety of different sized silicone rings, which they were to place at the base of their erect penis to shorten its length.
The rings were designed to either not change the man’s length or to shorten it by an inch, an inch and a half or two inches.
The couples got down to business and the woman, who did not know what size ring her partner wore, rated the encounter on a scale of 0 to 100 in terms of overall sexual pleasure and emotional connection with her other half.
David Veale, lead author of the study, told The Times, “We started with the premise that depth of penetration would not matter to most women.
We found that reducing the depth of penetration by one inch led to a statistically significant drop in the amount of pleasure experienced.”
“The longer the penis was erect, the less likely the rings were to have an impact on sexual pleasure. However, there was a range of individual responses, with a minority of women reporting that reducing the depth of penetration was more pleasurable at times.”
However, the study authors state that their findings cannot be applied to normal men who are concerned about the size of their penises, and Veale explains that the study was more relevant to men who had experienced a shortening of their penises due to health conditions.
Veale concluded by saying that efforts to find out whether increased penis size in average men led to greater sexual pleasure “would be a completely different study.” Fair enough.
