This is a part of why fat men aren't very appealing. I think. Because fat builds up around the base of the penis, making it both look and feel shorter. Some fat men can end up with an "innie" because the fat actually engulfs it.
I bet obesity is the "health condition" they are referring to.
>Veale said that the study was particularly relevant for men experiencing penile shortening due to health conditions.
OMG ok when i read this sentence I was like are guys jacking off so hard that they are disintegrating their penises???
Obesity makes more sense. I have a friend who briefly dated a guy who was OBESE. His body was shaped like a sphere. She told me that when they had sex she couldn't even feel it because of all the fat in the way 🤮
This one obese scrote I know always complains about having a small Dick and that women shouldn’t care because sMaLl DiCkS mAtTeR tOo. He’s one of the most openly misogynistic men that I know too, complains about how when men state their preferences of women it’s labeled “body shaming”. He said that’s why women deserve less, because they prefer bigger dicks when “men can’t control how big they are”. He’s so delusional it’s hilarious, if he actually put effort into losing weight he can change the “small Dick problem” he has. But instead he never works out and only eats fast food
My husband was over 300 lbs when I met him... he too thought he had a small peen... I didn't care about it much, sex was never really all that important to me... although getting off was.
Anyway, he's nearly 100 lbs lighter now and what he thought was a small 3 inch dong is now more like 7 inches.
And then I found out why sex with men didn't matter to me 🙃 🎶I'm so gay and I don't even like boys🎶... The hints were always there, but growing up in a strict Christian household tends to make you bury that shit under 6 ft of compulsive heterosexuality. Coming out (to my husband and reddit, anyway) made me feel so free and helped me make leaps and bounds with my mental health. (Still living with husband because I have no money and am not in a place to be a single mother to 2 toddlers at this point).
Article below as it's paywalled.
>The age-old question of whether size matters has been tested in a scientific experiment for the first time — and the conclusion is that it might. Previous research into penis length and women’s sexual pleasure has tended to rely on surveys.
>A new study from King’s College London recruited 12 sexually active couples. The male partner was asked to reduce artificially the depth of penetration by placing a range of different silicon rings around the base of his erect penis. The female partner, who was not shown the size of ring used, rated each encounter on a scale of 0 to 100 for sexual pleasure overall and from intercourse alone, and in terms of emotional connection to her partner.
>David Veale, the study’s lead author, said: “We started with the premise that depth of penetration would not matter to most women. We found that reducing the depth of penetration by an inch led to a statistically meaningful drop in the amount of pleasure experienced. “The longer the erect penis, the less likely the rings had an impact on sexual pleasure. There was, however, a range of individual responses with a minority of women reporting that reducing the depth of penetration was more pleasurable on some occasions.”
>The rings were designed either to make no difference or to reduce penetration by an inch, 1.5 inches and two inches. Participants were told to have sex either three, four or five times with each ring.
>Veale said that the study was particularly relevant for men experiencing penile shortening due to health conditions. He added: “We need to establish effective interventions so that these men do not seek non-evidence based solutions like pills and lotions.”
>Veale went on to stress that the results “should not be misinterpreted as meaning that increasing penile length in a normal man will increase sexual pleasure in women”. He added: “That would be a completely different study.”
The group size is small, but it's actually wild to me they've never tested something like this before.
Once you understand the research community is run by incel scrotes dedicated to reinforcing their own worldview, you’ll start to understand why some studies mysteriously never get pitched, funded, or published
They’ll do anything to never face reality
Right!! They literally said they found reducing the depth of penetration lead to a drop in pleasure, what do you mean 'it might' 🙄
“Penile shortening due to health conditions”
Wat? The only thing I can think of is weight gain.
I knew they wouldn't admit it.
