The following email was sent weeks ago to the WHO through the link: http://www.who.int/suggestions/feedback/en/index.html
Hi, would like to know who thought it would be a good idea to compare erect ethnic penis sizes using two self-reported studies and one for which is not ? Also, which “major agencies” found that prefer narrower ? Since the study did not include condom size preference, which US study looked at this?
No reply to date.
I suspect this ‘data’ was influenced by Dr. John Paul Gerofi (PhD Electrical Engineering) who uses the same data here. Comically, the Thai study used measurements by multiple sex workers using paper tapes. One can only imagine how these sex workers were schooled in measurement methodology!
