    I've heard various times throughout my life that there is a relatively solid correlation between the length of your pecker and the size of your hands (and feet). And for a guy, I gotta admit that I've got relatively small hands and feet and sadly I'm on the lower side of average as the "myth" suggests. So the question becomes... is it true, or do i just happen to fit the myth? Any other guys want to chime in on this with their .02?

    Interesting question. My husband has wide fingers - relatively short for the width of them, but his feet are long and relatively narrow. His penis resembles his hands more than his feet, being fairly wide in circumference as compared to an average length of about 5.5 inches. Actually, he is built all over like that, broad but not very tall (except for those feet).

    Myth on my end. I'm little shorter then average height, thin build and I wear small size gloves and shoes but I'm larger then average length and girth.

    My penis is average-size, my feet are average (9.5-10 US), and my hands are average as well (Medium gloves).

    I tend to think that's probably a myth, and those that do follow this trend are probably that way by pure coincidence.

    So far what I have read is that you can't relate dick size to any other bodily measurement.

    I don't think it's true in my case. My hands and feet are a little smaller than average, but my penis is a little larger than average I guess.

    A female co-worker who liked to flirt once asked me if it was true that a man's erect penis was the same length as from where his wrist broke to the tip of his index finger. I looked at my hand, bent my wrist, and said I wasn't sure about others, but I thought it was more like from the wrist to the elbow. I think she actually believed me. :eyes (A few months later she was in my office actually crying because I didn't want to mess around with her, and we were both married!)

    Anyway, upon reading this question I just now measured from my wrist to the tip of my finger -- 7 inches. That's about the length of my erection (6.75 inches), but I'm not convinced. Hand and foot size is related to bone structure, not boner structure.

    I have small feet :( But I'm above average down there :) I'd say it's a myth.

    Hun, please so not say "sadly I'm on the lower side of average". That just does not matter. I think this whole idea is a myth...I have heard the same thing in relation to feet, nose etc. Don't worry about it. ;)

    There is a handy little chart to show you that in this thread: http://www.sexualforums.com/talk/showthread.php?t=18841

    I would say it is a myth, at least in my case. I have rather large hands and also wear a size 16 shoe, however I am average to just barely above average down below......

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Size 16 shoe?

    I owned/ran a shoe store for 6 years, and the biggest foot I ever measured was a 15EE. (He won a free pair of shoes for winning our Bigfoot contest.)

    There have been a few studies on this one (researchers with too much time on their hands). Men who have higher than average levels of testosterone often end up with bigger than average penises, and men who have higher than average levels of testosterone usually hit puberty at a younger age, meaning they will be shorter and have a less muscle mass than what would otherwise be the case.

    So the only correlation is that smaller than average guys are more likely to have bigger than average penises, and larger guys are less likely to be well-endowed. Or as an escort I once knew in a social way put it: it's always the small guys who pack a surprise and the big guys who are a disappointment. Allowing for regulars, I would guess that she's had sex with several thousand men.

    You would think that if this weren't a myth, there would be millions of men with 8.5 to 10 inch dicks out there and that would surely change the overall average penis size LOL

    Read my post about high testosterone, larger penises and early puberty. There is a negative correlation: smaller men are more likely to have bigger penises. This means smaller in height, build, hand size, foot size and so on. Like me: 167cm, 58kg, size 6.5 / 41 shoes, short and stubby fingers, 7.5" long and 6.5" girth.

    In the words of the great Adam Savage: "This myth is well and truly busted."
