Repost: Do ‘penis size’ studies measure up?

There are many ways men like to be described, but when it comes to describing their penis size, most men would rather keep that a private issue – unless they can claim one of the precarious labels above. Nevertheless, penis size is very important to some people – more often than not, men, in their eternal quest to know if they “measure up.”

But first things first. What is the average length of an erect penis? 5.3 inches? 6 inches? 10 inches? Well, every one of those answers has come up in statistical surveys and self-perception questionnaires. And based on the evidence, the answer is closer to the first two than the latter (which, by the way, is how most men described how big their penis was in a campus survey!). Everyone from esteemed sex researcher Alfred Kinsey to amateur webmasters looking to survey the surfing male public has entered the fray to find out the average length of the erect penis. And, well, there is no one definitive answer. But for argument’s sake (and the overwhelming consensus among scientific and less scientific studies), let’s say it’s in the vicinity of 6 inches, or about 15 centimetres.

Now, when it comes to studies about penis size, figuring out the actual length of the member is a piece of cake. Other studies have strayed into sometimes less straightforward, politically incorrect waters, like what role race plays into the equation. There have long been stereotypes around concerning which races are better endowed or less endowed than others. In fact, even some physicians have added their two cents worth. “My conclusions, I guess, can be based on my observations clinically,” says Dr. Robert Stubbs, a Canadian penis-enhancement surgeon. “I think there is definitely a racial difference, and at this point – and I’m quite prepared to be proven wrong – there are three sizes: black, white and yellow (Asian), in descending order.”

But does this opinion stand up in the court of scientific accuracy? Again, the issue is a murky one. “Anthropological studies from the past 100 years have really documented that, on average, penis size of east Asian males are smaller than western European and North American males,” states Dr. Robert Francoeur, editor of the The International Encyclopedia of Sexuality. “And African males, on average, have a larger penis size.” But Francoeur is also first to admit there are always many exceptions to the rule. So what’s the answer?

Toronto-based physician, Dr. Jerald Bain, who treats men with reproductive disorders, thinks there isn’t yet an answer he’s satisfied with. “But I can tell you from my own personal experience in seeing hundreds and hundreds of men – and I have the added advantage of working in Toronto, a very international city – that there is no difference from one ethnic origin to another,” he says. And, he adds, if his observations are not the real answer, the race card can also be a double-edged sword.

Confused? Bain says that if penis size is related to race – which he says he’s not aware has been scientifically proven anywhere – it might actually make sense. After all, he points out, if Asian men have smaller penises than Caucasians, that may have something to do with the fact that their body build and height have a bearing on the matter. And when it comes to this side of the equation, Bain knows his stuff. Bain has looked at whether the length of a man’s penis can be determined (or guessed) simply by looking at some other less private body parts – like feet.

“We measured their height and found that penis size was related to shoe size – but only insofar as it related to the general size of the man,” explains Bain. Although the statistical relationship was weak, it was there, and taller men tend to have larger appendages of all sorts, including the penis.

But perhaps the biggest question that should be asked is, does penis size matter in the first place? As Stubbs even admits, “penis size studies are meaningless in terms of procreation because if indeed Oriental men are smaller, they’ve populated the world to the greatest extent.” And when it comes right down to it, sex educator Sue Johansen, who doesn’t mince her words, puts it rather plainly: “it really doesn’t matter. Bigger is not better.” So we’ve raised the questions and you still don’t think you’ve heard a satisfactory answer. Well, as with other controversial topics, this is one of those with no simple answers – at least not yet – which makes it one of the most enduring sexual myths.

Just in case there is any confusion, though, here’s what isknown, in plain black and white: the average length of the erect penis is roughly 5.5 to 6 inches. There are no scientific studies to show that penis size and race are related in any meaningful way – and yes, penis size and foot size do have a loose correlation.

So, if you’re a man reading this, where do you fit in? When you find out, keep it quietly to yourself and maybe some of the enduring myths about penis size will fade away. Then again, who am I kidding?

I am confused as to why an enhancement surgeon (Dr. Stubbs) would think that those who come to him for help would represent the average of the normal ethnic groups. An email sent to him for clarification is sadly yet unanswered. Quite unfortunately, Dr. Robert Francoeur is dead but if my track record is any indicator, he would not have replied to my emails anyway. His co-author (Dr. Noonan) was kind enough to reply but does not know of the studies to which Francoeur referred. Alas, I believe he meant the same occult French source as used by Rushton (also dead) and Bogaert (refuses to reply to multiple emails).


Repost: Of Pinheads And Penis Sizes

The article being referenced is Cheng, P., and J. Chanoine. 2001. Should the definition of micropenis vary according to ethnicity? Hormone Research 55(6): 278–281.

See if you can spot the pinheads: Two researchers at British Columbia’s Children’s Hospital, Canada, are engaged in cutting-edge work. Not the kind to let the shortage of high tech medical equipment in the province get in the way of science, the two potential Nobel Prize laureates intend to take a measuring tape to the penises of their newborn charges to see whether there is a relationship between size and race. Team member Dr. Pik Shun Cheng, vaporized about “the diagnosis of small penis carrying important implications for babies and parents.” More like a case of outsized ambition wrapped in pseudo-scientific bafflegab.

Says this medical maven from Honk Kong who is serving a clinical fellowship at the children’s hospital: “Penis size by race has largely gone unstudied”. And what a loss that is. Think of the wealth of information to be gleaned from a bell-curve graph neatly plotted with penile size and race, the mind boggles. The man in charge of the diaper invasion is a Dr. Jean-Pierre Chanoinen, a brain influx from Brussels. He told Global TV that in his country, this endeavor would not have inked the back page of a local newspaper. Of course, Global’s reporter took the good doctor’s word that, notwithstanding the study’s controversial nature, it had medical merit. Does it?

Observe the desperate attempts by the under-siege faux researchers to put forth a cogent scientific argument in the press; an attempt gobbled up wholesale by the media phalanx. “In particular, we do encounter some cases of very short penile length, and then we need to decide whether they should be raised as a girl or a boywhether they need to have a sexual reversal,” said Cheng.

Is this for real? Is one of the aims of this study to help Cheng decide if and when to lop off a penis should it be smaller than she would like? And how does this quest relate to race? I imagine she might spare a baby his appendage if she knew that, despite his shortcomings, the child conformed to his race’s aggregate endowment or lack thereof. Goes to show that not all correlations are worthy of study.

There have been a couple of devastating experiments in medical history in which doctors have removed a child’s penis because it had been damaged, and proceeded to fashion in its place female genitalia. Pumped with female hormones and taught to play with Barbie, these children were viewed as textbook successes. But whittling down what it means to be male to the presence or absence of a male organ proved arrogant. The reassigned children were often doomed to a life of desperation brought on because a hard-wired gender identity had been tampered with. At heart, the physician-created girls were still boys. “We do not recommend such imposed sex reassignment regardless of penile condition,” wrote Milton Diamond Ph.D. and Keith Sigmundson MD in a 1997 paper for “Archives, Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine.”

In the wake of the rising controversy, Dr. Chanoinen stuck steadfast to his claim that by measuring their penises he was merely looking out for the health of the infants, so he threw into the medical voodoo his concern for the worst case scenario. What if he missed hypoglycemia and seizures brought on by hormonal deficiencies? Let’s follow the Chanoinen algorithm: When baby isn’t thriving what do you do? Why, you reach for the Penile-Race Chart, of course. “Ah, baby is Asian hmmm… and its penis is still smaller than the mean average suggested in my chart, then let me check for hypoglycemia”. Why not just throw some bones on the table and see what the ancestral spirits say?

The National Post missed the whole issue completely, insinuating that the good doctor was the casualty of a political correctness, which disallows research involving racial characteristics. Making the case for the shoddy inquiry, the Post extrapolated the connection between race and penis size to the fit of condoms and the prevention of AIDS. So now we have moved from the violation of the dignity of babies in B.C., to the politics of the World Health Organization. Without going into details, I suspect condom manufacturers have pretty much got a grip on the size thing and do not need to take into consideration B.C.’s demographics.

Here’s a more useful avenue of inquiry for our medical boneheads: What about testing the connection between small penises and a dictatorial personality? This, you would agree, is a matter for the B.C. Human Rights Kangaroo Commission. While the Commission would not wish to extend special protection to the minimally endowed, it would nonetheless be eager to know if there are any little chauvinists being hothoused in our backyards; the type of male who, fueled by inferiority, is capable of human rights violations.

Why not preempt such a scenario and make it mandatory for an infant, singled out for his small penis, to sign up for an education initiative intended to weed out any defiance caused by the frustrations of a diminished manhood. Something akin to the post World War II denazification programs. Herein lies the true social value of Drs. Chanoinene and Cheng’s proposal. It is certainly no more a reductio ad absurdum than measuring the penis size of a child alongside his race.

It earned a mention on Discover Magazine’s NCBI ROFL which lists stupid/questionable research. They even have an expansive list of penis related studies, well worth the laugh.

The end results favored the good guys, of course. Often have other movie producers used this stereotypical movie plot to increase the suspense and sensationalism of the movie.

Uses non-Europeans to make racist statements about each other for the voyeuristic satiation of European audiences. Shin (2008) states “It is ironic that while the theme of Rush Hour is reconciliation between two different cultures and races, it reproduces the racial stereotypes. It presents Carter as a hypersexual black womanizer vs. Lee as a feminized asexual Asian, which is a typical assumption about black and Asian masculinities.”

Frankly, we’re tired of this disrespect…….Further, it’s critical to note that the callous, monolithic representations of Black people peddled by SNL and others have alarming real-world impacts. Media depictions of Black individuals, families and communities irrefutably shape how we’re perceived in society.” (quote of Rashad Robinson from Couch 2013). It’s not much better for East Asians either (Guillermo 2012).
  66. hardly workingHardly Working (1980): Directed, written and starring Jerry Lewis (Joseph Levitch). Levitch stars as a yellow-faced buck-tooth Japanese chef spouting gems such as “You going to rove it,” “You say you want slimp stake …,” and “I am a brack and blue belt …”

  69. Bridge on the River Kwai (1957): Written by Carl Foreman, produced by Sam Spiegel. “Other stereotypes of Asians are called upon in this Oscar-winning film, although many are simply noted in passing. For example, even though there are no women at the POW camp, Japanese lechery for white women is made apparent by a calendar of bodacious blondes in their barracks. Outside the camp, silent Asian women carry equipment for the American played by William Holden. Although it makes little or no sense in the context of the film, the Asian women end up bathing him. For his part, Holden notes their silence with satisfaction. Thus while not a major element in the film, ethnicized gender roles are maintained. The White man maintains that the Asian man is lecherous and the Asian woman, a submissive fantasy” (Kashiwabara 1996).

  83. Rhythm on the Reservation (1939): Directed by Dave Fleischer, Betty character voiced by Margie Hines, animator Myron Waldman. Bischoff (2010) states”The episode depicted Native Americans as being unintelligent ­— it showed them speaking in short, incomplete sentences and pounding on their chests to communicate.” From Schmidt (2014): “This cartoon has the usual compendium of racist stereotypes. The worst may be the Tonto talk, the teepees, and the complete ignorance of modern life. This cartoon was set in 1939, when Indians were wearing Western clothes, working in factories, and enlisting in the military. They weren’t dressing in buckskins or blankets and beating tom-toms.”
  84. Platoon (1986): Directed by Oliver Stone. “… white and black soldiers vow to take revenge on the Vietnamese communists who have lynched one of their African American brothers-in-arms.” (Locke 2009, 10).

A US European agent undergoes plastic surgery to make him look Japanese so he can infiltrate Japan and help to free a POW. Posters stated: “One Man invasion of Jap Homeland!” and “See the Secret that Crossed-up the JAPS!” From the American Film Institute: “When the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on 6 Aug 1945, approximately five months after filming was completed, the script was rewritten to include footage of the attack on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the closing narration extolling the virtues of the bomb was added.”
  88. Making Stars (1935): Directed by Dave Fleischer, produced by Max Fleischer, voices by Mae Kwestel (Mae Questel), animator Lillian Friedman Astor. Stars a US European drummer baby who is pacified by a bottle of milk, followed by a Russian female baby named “Little Miss Trotsky” (with stereotypical Russian musical riff) who stops crying on seeing a candy cane. Then come a trio of African sambo babies who stop crying when shown watermelon, another African baby being pacified by a slice of watermelon, then a Chinese baby with a (hair) queue who is a juggler/marksman (with stereotypical Chinese riff). He is not pacified however, but runs away crying.
  89. The Karate Kid (1984): Written by Robert Mark Kamen, produced by Jerry Weintraub. An elderly Japanese male is bagger vance to a European boy. “Despite the fact that Mr. Miyagi was an American WWII veteran, he was still portrayed speaking English with a foreign accent (Wong). The myth that all Asian men know some form of martial arts was also stressed in this movie when Mr. Miyagi surprises Daniel (the white male leading actor) with his karate moves after appearing passive and bashful during the first portions of the film. It reminds people to be aware of Asian men in general because passivity may not appear to be what it seems.” (Mahdzan & Ziegler n.d.). Miyagi also tries to catch a fly with chopsticks.
  90. The Karate Kid (2010): Produced by Jerry Weintraub, rehash of a older martial arts bagger vance to a younger non-East Asian male who is better at martial arts than those who originated the fighting form. Uses an Afropean male to detract/shield/minimize accusations of racial stereotyping.
  91. The Shanghai Gesture (1941): “scheming Chinese dragon ladies” (Greene 2014) who is a Manchu princess dispossessed for being sexed by an Englishman, kills her Eurasian daughter and owns an opium den/casino where Chinese females can be found in cages, two Europeans actors in Chinese-face, European actress in Eurasian-face, lines such as “you like Chinese New Year?“, uni-directional miscegenation, anti-(Chinese)miscegenation. Directed by Josef von Sternberg (Jonas Sternberg), initial US script by Arnold Pressburger (Aldgate and Robertson 2005), produced by Arnold Pressburger Films.
  92. The Mountain Road (1960): Unidirectional miscegenation. The Chinese are portrayed as “treacherous “allies”” (Greene 2014). Based on a novel by Theodore H. White, written by Alfred Hayes, directed by Daniel Mann (Daniel Chugerman), produced by William Goetz and William Goetz Productions.
  93. Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold (1986): Produced by Yoram Globus and Menachem Golan. Line producer Michael Greenburg and executive producer Avi Lerner. Contains “…highly derogatory portrayals of Africans.” (Falola & Agwuele 2009).
  94. Pearl Harbor (2001): Director and producer Michael Bay, producer Jerry Bruckheimer. “… tells the story of Doolittle’s daring payback raid on Japan during WW2 and how the pilots deliberately crashlanded in China, assuming correctly that the populace would help them to safety. However, the quarter-of-a-million Chinese civilians who either unwittingly died or willingly scarificed (sic) themselves as a consequence of sheltering the few dozen American aircrews and bringing virtually all of them them to safety are not so much as given an honorable mention in the ending credits.” (Keith 2013).
  95. Munich (2005): Director/producer By Steven Spielberg, screenwriters Tony Kushner and Eric Roth, producer Barry Mendel. “Simply by the way it was conceptualized, Munich couldn’t be anything but propaganda. The premise of the movie necessitates this. Propaganda begins by deciding what is going to be left out of the film. The film by the fact that it is called Munich gives the impression that the cycle of violence started in 1972 and that the Palestinians started it. Left out of the film is the fact that hundreds of Palestinian civilians had been murdered when Israel jets attacked their refugee camp in February 1972, which is to say seven months before the Olympic attack. Munich is a movie about the rules of Jewish discourse. It is also a movie about how giving the wrong answer to a Jew will result in your death or the death of your career.” (Jones 2012)
  96. Mission Impossible (S05E07): Leonard Nimoy plays Kabuki performer Nakamura Taizo, directed by Gerald Mayer.
  97. Know Your Enemy: Japan (1945): Written by Carl Foreman. The film is described as “a potpourri of most of the English speaking world’s dominant clichés about the Japanese enemy, excluding the crudest, most vulgar, and most blatantly racist.” (Dover 1986).
  98. Seinfeld (S09E17): Opium (grown in India, used by the British to drug the Chinese) is referred to as “Chinaman’s nightcap”. Rosalyn Weinman (NBC’s executive vice president for broadcast standards and content policy), actors Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander.
  99. The Social Network (2010): Screenplay by Aaron Sorkin, based on book by Ben Mezrich, producers Scott Rudin and Michael De Luca, actors Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Armie Hammer. “… the film depicts Asian women so promiscuously in both sense of the word—Christy and Alice, played by Brenda Song and Malese Jow, are depicted as sexually aggressive, approaching Mark and Eduardo during a lecture, asking them out for a drink, and eventually performing fellatio on Mark and Eduardo in adjoining stalls in a Cambridge pub bathroom …” (Nakamura 2011).
  100. The Wolf of Wall Street (2013): A character is called the “depraved Chinaman” while the actual Hebrewpean characters are purposely scrubbed of their Hebrew ancestry and no derogatory terms hurled in their direction. Director Martin Scorsese also Christianizes the chief Hebrewpean thief (Jordan Belfort) to make the movie palpable to Hollywood’s Hebraic censors. Speaking of this movie, Eshman (2013) states that: “Scorsese feels much safer depicting the Italian-ness of his violent mobsters than the Jewishness of his greedy con men.”
  101. Life (2017): Writer Paul Wernick, producers Dana Goldberg, David Ellison, actor Jake Gyllenhaal. Japanese male character feminized.
  102. Young Sheldon (2017 – ): Created by Chuck Lorre. Married European male formerly sexed a Vietnamese female named “Kim Lee”, sexually desperate, model-minority Vietnamese male nerd, Afropean medical affirmative action.
  103. The Simpsons (1989 – ): Executive producers Sam Simon and James Brooks. Hank Azaria as the voice of a stereotypical South Asian male named Apu. Other actors Julie Kavner and Harry Shearer.

  105. Future Man (2017 – ): Executive producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg.
  106. The Goonies (1985): Director Richard Donner, producer Harvey Bernhard, story by Steven Spielberg, actors Kerri Green, Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, Martha Plimpton and Jeff Cohen. Data (Jonathan Ke Quan) “… speaks English as a second language and his trouble with pronunciation is the butt of many “jokes”; he’s smart and good at math (it’s right there in his name!), an inventor of impossible gadgets he keeps hidden in his huge trenchcoat (sneaky, see?); and he is the only Goonie who shows no interest in flirting with the girls when they turn up (asexual)…The worst part here is that even though he’s presented as a genius, Data isn’t actually written smart. His gadgets are unnecessarily complex and impractical, and he makes some pretty stupid decisions. And towards the end of the movie, he doesn’t even know what equipment he’s actually carrying.” (Mason 2016). Within four minutes of the movie, the opening shot of Ke Huy Quan is as a gadget man (model minority), Quan is accented, called Data (seriously?) and fashions himself as the British character 007. Stereotypical Latina maid (Rosalita) who does not speak English.
  107. Romeo Must Die (2000): Producer Joel Silver. Feminization of Chinese male protagonist, crime and martial arts stereotypes.

Afropean medical affirmative action, European male heterosexualization, East Asian feminization, positive Hebrewpean male character, “Gypsy” patriarch played by a Hebrewpean, manipulative, superstitous “Gypsies” with ‘ethnic’ music.
  113. The Good Doctor (2017 – ): Written by David Shore, creator of the anti-East Asian series House MD. Adapted from a South Korean serial. Afropean, European and Latino male heterosexualization, Afropean and Latino medical affirmative action, East Asian female hospital financier (model minority) sexes younger European male, East Asian male gawks at European females which leads to his death by vehicular accident, two token East Asian male medical doctors (no speaking lines), European male falls in love with a Thai female who has two children, East Asian male professional gamer.

  115. The Cheat (1915): Produced by Jesse Lasky. “… has a wealthy Japanese villain actually portrayed by a Japanese American. So interchangeable were Asians, however, that when the film was re-released in 1918, the character became Burmese.” (Ithaca College Library, n.d.). From Lee (1999), “Tori can realize his desire only through commerce, cash for sex. Tori, the Orientalized male, can only attempt to extort sex from the white woman because he is never allowed to be sexually mature. The Orientalized male is assumed to have been hypnotized by the premature pleasure of the senses. His moral development, and therefore his powers of logic, language, and self-control – powers arrogated to Western man – are arrested. The Orientalized male can only vacillate between a superficial boyish charm and sadistic cruelty fueled by frustrated desire.”
  116. Lost Horizon (1937): Sam Jaffe plays the “High Lama”
  117. Air Force (1943): Produced by Hal Wallis & Jack Warner, actors John Garfield, George Tobias. “Japanese are mostly anonymous targets of bombing runs. However, there is a depiction of sabotage by Japanese-Americans in Hawaii before the attack on Pearl Harbor that absolutely never actually happened (Ithaca College Library, n.d.).
  118. The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957): Produced by Sam Spiegel, screenplay by Carl Foreman. “The 1957 prisoner-of-war story contrasts western culture with that of the Japanese. One is civilized; the other barbarian. Also explores weakness and bravery.” (Ithaca College Library, n.d.).
  119. The Bridges at Toko-Ri (1954): Director Mark Robson, producer William Perlberg, actor Robert Strauss. “A 1955 film in which with the advent of a new war, the sinister images of Asians have moved from Japanese to Koreans.” (Ithaca College Library, n.d.).
  120. Dragon Seed (1944): Actors Aline MacMahon, Pandro Berman, Turhan Bey. “Katharine Hepburn plays a very mannered Chinese woman, and she’s not the only yellow faced actor. The war-themed message was that Chinese peasants are noble and the Japanese are evil villains.” (Ithaca College Library, n.d.).

East Asians and Testosterone I

UPDATE: East Asians and Testosterone II

Hays (2011) states:

North Asians have lower levels of muscle-building testosterone than Europeans. Some Asian athletes have taken testosterone-like steroids as “a way of leveling the playing field.”

He provides no source for either claim. Mail sent to Mr. Hays on March 15, 2013 remain unanswered. Not to be outdone, Kelsey (2008) further states:

The reason basically for Asian men being more feminine in physical appearance is because of they produce more estrogen than men of other racial groups. Asian women are more feminine in appearance because they produce more estrogen than other women. This estrogen also influences personality and emotions this makes Asian men display characteristics that often are associated with women.

Some of the characteristics are they keep emotions hidden well meaning it can be difficult to tell when an Asian man is angry. The more testosterone a man produce the more he will show his emotions of anger, joy, sadness, happiness, etc. The less testosterone a man produces the more he is able to keep his emotions hidden.

But when he has kept these emotions hidden for a long time and bottled up whether these emotions are positive or negative when they come out they will manifest very strongly. The estrogen allows Asian men and women to look younger for many years example a 40 year old Asian man who looks 27 years old.

The claim of lower East Asian testosterone (T) levels is now a race realist marker of “race” or race difference. The European race realist asserts three main ethnic androgen hypotheses with some corollary hypotheses.

Main hypotheses:

  • African males have the highest testosterone level
  • European males have an intermediate testosterone level
  • East Asian males have the lowest testosterone level

Corollary hypotheses:

  • Indo-Aryan or South Asian males have low testosterone levels but higher than East Asians [despite not following from the main hypotheses]
  • Middle Eastern males have high testosterone levels but not as high as Africans
  • Indigenous American males have lower testosterone levels but higher than  Indo-Aryans
  • Latin American males have levels commensurate with their respective Asiatic-American and African admixture (for most instances, higher than Americans)

Data is available for each of these groups though lacking for Americans, Indo-Aryans and Latin Americans. The (general) race realist T-ranking from highest to lowest:

  1. African
  2. Middle Easterner
  3. European
  4. Latino
  5. Native American
  6. Indo-Aryan
  7. East Asian


To race realists, when East Asian males are passive, it is because they have the lowest testosterone levels which cause their genitals to be deformed such that they have the smallest lengths, girths, testicular weight and sperm production. When East Asian males are aggressive, it is because they are annoyed that they have low testosterone which causes their genitals to be deformed such that they have the smallest lengths, girths, testicular weight and sperm production. It is a ‘damned if you do, damned if you don’t’ stereotype.

Trying to hide this behind a scientific veneer, Jean Philippe Rushton uses the incidence of prostate cancer to assert that since it is high in Americans of African descent, lower in Americans of European descent and lowest in East Asians, it is mainly due to testosterone differences. The problem is that he conveniently focuses on only three groups which he also conveniently defines. His “Caucasoid” grouping does not include Semites and Aryans. His “Mongoloid” group does not include Euro-Americans (Latinos) and indigenous Americans. His “Negroid” group includes US Afropeans but not Dravidians (South Asians) and those with Negrito ancestry such as Malays, which he includes in his “Mongoloid” group.

If he were to have found a race realist revolutionary update to Darwinian evolution as he asserts, then he would have found that Arabs (Saudis, Omanis and Kuwaitis) also have very low prostate cancer rates and that Afro-Zimbabweans have lower levels of prostate cancer than Euro-Zimbabweans, Germans, Australians and US Europeans and a bit lower rate than the Welsh (Kehinde et al. 2005). Contra Eurocentric race realism, Strahm et al. (2009) states in referring to Satner et al. (1998) that:

Comparative studies of Caucasian and Chinese subjects living either in the USA or in China provided strong evidence that environmental/dietary, but not genetic, factors influence androgen production.

Miller et al. (1985) found that “[t]estosterone did not differ with ethnic group” when studying Trinidadian men of African and Indo-Aryan descent. Even among rapists and child molesters, most had normal T levels except for those who were the most violent. Rada, Laws and Kellner (1976) further states that:

There was no correlation between age, race, or length of incarceration and plasma testosterone level.

Rushton had previously proposed the ‘principle of aggregation’ where he would aggregate data to minimize bias. He is correct that data aggregation can minimize bias. He is incorrect in his poor choice of data in the first place (but I digress). Applying his own principle of aggregation, what follow is a meta-analysis of over 150 peer-reviewed articles on hormone levels in different ethnic groups to see if his hypothesis is correct (at least according to the available data).


T-resultsData sources available HERE.


proposedT-diffFrom the above tables, it is clear that the race realist assertion is incorrect, whether one looks at the 7 so-called micro ‘races’ or the 3 so-called macro ‘races’. East Asians were found to have the highest average total plasma testosterone (5,673 ρg/mL) followed by Africans (5,442 ρg/mL) and then Europeans (4,992 ρg/mL). Given that the sample size for Africans is smaller (N < 10,000), their relative position may change with more data. Nonetheless, the claim that East Asians have the least testosterone is not supported by scientific data. 

So ladies, if you want a high T male, go to the Philippines (8100 ρg/mL) and find yourself a malnourished, sexually active, 22 year old Filipino; 5 feet 4 inches, 123 lbs, poorly educated and making slightly less than $9 US monthly [Gettler, McDade & Kuzawa (2011)]. Even better, find an Egyptian.

UPDATE 2013-05-08: A blogger on the race realist AnthroScape blog states:

This PDF file is not to be taken 100% seriously. It obviously lacks measurements of free testosterone, which is arguably more important than total testosterone. Furthermore, extrapolating a table ranking ethnic groups based on testosterone levels is not the best idea, especially when there are different age brackets and methodologies of each of the studies to consider.


  • There is no way of accurately determining free testosterone. Even if there was, this would also be irrelevant since bio-availability is prime. Since race realists use total serum testosterone, why is this an issue?
  • One cannot and should not compare different testosterone studies with different measurement methods. However, for the race-realist purpose of aggregating data, there is nothing inherently wrong with what the PDF file lists. If JP Rushton can use a few studies and make wild claims which are then used by the Internet-o-sphere, using 150 independent peer-reviewed sources with large samples is much more scientific than anything similar from the race realist community.
  • The PDF contains all of the above and has a long list of why testosterone measurements can be fickle.
  • Age differences will affect the results but healthy males should have negligible decreases. Assuming a 0.4% annual decline from 5000 pg/ml after age 40, a man at 80 should have 4275 pg/mL, less than a 15% difference if my spreadsheet math is correct. It would have been better to normalize for age. So while the tabled rankings is flawed, the point is that the entire issue is flawed as there is no standard measuring method in the first place. That race realists routinely use flawed data should be the issue but …
  • Do feel free to wade through the tables and references and normalize the data for methodology and age. Good luck on that though.

He further states:

I find it slightly odd that Indians have the highest testosterone levels, although it’s understandable because of the conditions they are living in. …… Social aggression, dominance and high cognition among men, especially visuo-spatial cognition, is correlated with moderate to high testosterone levels. Stress and depression are correlated with lower testosterone levels, as are personality traits such as submission and less aggression.

  • What conditions are Indians living in that make for higher T?
  • Western defined and rated social aggression and dominance will obviously down relegate Easterners. That is simple bias: stacking the definitional deck and insisting that everyone play by said deck.
  • What level of correlation is there? There will always be correlations but only if it is significant can such data be used.

He continues:

…. beard growth, penile size and body hair are indicative of the presence of testosterone (along with the genes which code for such phenotypes) but do not tell whether an individual has high or low testosterone.

I’ve studied human physiology and biochemistry for years so I know what I’m talking about. Genetics play a huge role in determining whether an individual has a beard, has a large or small penis and body hair.

  • Genetically, penis size seems to be determined by in-utero hormone exposure and concentration.
  • However, penile measurements I would say make a flaw in only measuring the outer penile length by multiple methods which differ considerably. If the inner penis is roughly the same length of the outer penis (Saladin & Miller 2004: 1029), then a porn star may simply be an average guy with more outer penis and perhaps, less fat pad and/or weaker suspensory ligaments (i.e. all current measurements do not factor in erection angle).
  • Until there are standardized ultrasound measurements of different ethnic groups, race realists are not being scientific in claiming that there are differences in penile lengths. At best, one may claim differences in perceived lengths, which is obviously unscientific and irrelevant.

UPDATE 2014-02-06: A blogger on [dead link] states:

Found the site/guy who uploaded that chart.

Guess what…



Check his great wall of china background, check his posts, most about asians/asia related shit…bet he frauded the data.

Having a Great Wall of China photo and speaking about so-called Asian related issues does not make one an Asian. You are being presumptuous with only that data. If you can find any problem with the data please specify so I can update accordingly. Alternatively, you may perform a study for yourself and post your results for others to critique.

UPDATE 2014-08-31: A blogger named “Boss” from states:

Europeans live longer and experience T decline. He could’ve limited his studies to account for age, but instead wanted to “aggregate” every study and then claim that it was impossible to do so. When you control methodology and age, this is what you get:

He quotes from the linked article:

In addition, the Swedes had significantly higher levels of serum testosterone, compared with the Koreans.

If you want to control for age, please do so for all the referenced populations. I don’t see how it is possible to control for age unless I have the original data sets but if you have a method, have at it. One article using two sub-populations do not indicate that East Asian have less T than Europeans as I indicated to a previous commenter.

He continues:

Of course, someone posted that as a comment and he brushed it off, instead referring to his contrived aggregate. Just took a look at that guy’s site. That guy is obsessed with the asian small penis thing. 80% of his site/blog is him discrediting medical studies that show asians to have small penises :lol: What a fucking pathetic loser.

Nowhere in my comment do I refer to aggregation. Aggregation is a race realist method that I am using to show that race realists don’t employ their own method properly. I also gave 5 possible reasons for the Korean/Swede T discrepancy. This blog does not discredit “medical studies that show asians (sic) to have small penises” since I know of no such study. If however you know differently, please leave links in the comments.

Another blogger at race/history/evolution notes blog has a review which views this post poorly. I expected something more substantive but it seems like the reviewer only read the comments and didn’t look at the PDF file which would have dealt with some of his issues. I really don’t understand the obsession over one study as if one study can ever be definitive. As for the contention that there are no studies indicating a 10% difference between East Asians and Europeans, I did find one age controlled study where the Chinese sample had 8.8% more total T, 11.4% more bio-available T and 12% more free T than the European sample. The Japanese sample had 10.5%, 5.1% and 6.7% more than Europeans respectively [Wu et al. 1995]. Wonder if race realists discuss this study, or perhaps they are too busy in celebratory dance around the Korean/Swede campfire?

UPDATE 2014-11-21: Blogger named “Bobby Corwen” from the MacRumors forum states:

But that article you quoted was in my opinion quite stupid because it didn’t account for ages in the groups and that testosterone changes drastically over the lifespans of humans.

Coming from a person of your wide intellect, I am honoured to have a post called “quite stupid”. However, can you quantify “drastically”? As I have stated before, the data does not lend itself to easy age normalization. If you want age normalized data, do it yourself. Clearly, you are most capable of doing so.

It was probably biased because it was written by an Asian man but anyway you’re missing the point, in that its about averages and patterns, not about absolutes.

The T values are averages and are your comments “probably biased” because you do not identify as an “Asian man”?

UPDATE 2015-04-12: Blogger Robert Lindsay states concerning the data in this post that:

The East Asian rates are no good. Yes their levels are a bit higher, but they also a higher level of some other hormone that makes it so they cannot use the higher T very well, so effectively, their rates are lower than Whites.

Lindsay clarifies in another post:

Young Black males have higher levels of active testosterone than European and Asian males. Asian levels are intermediate to Blacks and Whites, but Asians have lower levels of a chemical needed to convert testosterone to its active agent, so effectively they have lower levels. Androgen receptor sensitivity is highest in Black men, intermediate in Whites and lowest in Asians.

The problem is that this claim is based on a study (Ross et al. 1992) of 50 US Africans (i.e. Afropeans) and 54 Japanese. Race realists really know the scientific method. Additionally, this recent study shows HK Chinese having some 3% more bio-available T than US Europeans.

Another blogger named Tata comments:

East Asian men and women have more estrogen, the female hormone.

Estrogen is not a “female hormone”. Estrogen has a feminizing effect but males also need estrogen to function optimally. I wonder which studies were consulted to form a conclusion not found in medical books. I suspect I will be wondering for a long time.

Lindsay then comments further:

Further, the free T levels are:

Highest: Blacks
Mid: Whites
Lowest: Asians

It just so turns out that Blacks have the highest crime and violence rates, then Whites, then Asians. Quite a few people believe that Blacks have the highest sex drives, then Whites, then Asians.

Blacks have the largest sex organs and Asians have the smallest, and that once again lines up perfectly with T levels.

The evidence is looking pretty good, not only that, but there is a not of other evidence suggesting that indeed it is true.

Find a supposed correlation. Make widely applicable statements. Provide no data. Being a race realists seems to be a length engagement with delusion, fantasy and ‘scientific’ homo-erotica. Lindsay suffers from the inability to distinguish between a hypothesis and a theory and claims that his “research takes a lot of time“. No kidding.

UPDATE 2015-08-15: A poster using the name Strike_Team states on the Amren site:

There was a site that “proved” E. Asians, E. Indians and Egyptians have higher testosterone levels than whites and blacks, stronger sex drives, with those pitiful white males being the majority of viagra users. It was filled of course a lot of circular reasoning and misuse of data. But it was funny as hell to read the “research” and some of the self serving comments from Indians. They really are the most self aggrandizing people I’ve ever encountered.

I did not prove anything but would love to hear about this circular reasoning and data misuse.

UPDATE 2016-07-07: Return of Kings commenter “Jim Trompe” makes the following claim:

Asians have lower levels of Test(probably an advantage in an advanced peaceful civilization) which is why asian women generally are considered more attractive than asian men. When they looked at the bones of people in the Viking era, its difficult to tell the difference between men and women-high Test from constant warring.

When corrected and sent a link to this blog, he then comments:

If you find that persuasive, its because you didnt actually look at the studies hes referring to. Dead links, studies comparing rapists and soccer players(preselection bias). The guy claims to be an expert but doesn’t know what he’s talking about, for example this statement “Genetically, penis size seems to be determined by in-utero hormone exposure and concentration.” No its caused by Dihydrotestosterone, a direct derivative of Testosterone(Estrogen is another derivative). There are many areas where there are genetic or environmental problems that cause a reduction in the enzyme necessary for the conversion of T to Dihydro..for example the Huevos Doces in the Dominican Republic, they were actually raised as girls because their genitals were so undeveloped. Anyways obviously its going to be a heated issue, just like the “debate” about IQ, because no one want to be in the group that is unmanly or low IQ.

Mr. Trompe, exactly who is an ‘Asian’ and who determines such naming? What does having less T have to do with ‘Asian’ men being less attractive than ‘Asian’ women? To whom is this attraction so configured? The studies I used are not dead links, you can find them if you have access to journal repositories (Ebscohost, Jstor) or simply using Google/Google Scholar. This is an aggregate so bias would be minimized (or so race realists like to claim). I don’t claim to be an expert but if you show where I did, I’ll repent and remove the claim. Your focus on one of my comments in response to another comment illustrates that you don’t care to look at the main issue (T differences) but want to veer off into side issues and ad hominem. Is this because you don’t want to be in an “unmanly” group? You ask for sources but provided none for your own claim that ‘Asians’ have the lowest T. Again, is this because you don’t want to be in the “unmanly” group?

UPDATE 2017-01-27: PumpkinPerson comments:

And the person who created that table seems to have a chip on his shoulder because he thinks Rushton was calling East Asians feminine. But being low T doesn’t make you feminine; estrogen makes you feminine.

Rushton claims that “Orientals” have (i) the smallest “primary sexual characteristics” (ii) the smallest “secondary sexual characteristics” (iii) the least androgens and (iv) tentatively used Nyborg’s hormotyping which ranks “Mongoloids” next to androgynous males. I will keep that chip, thanks!

UPDATE: 2017-08-18: venturecapitalcat on Reddit comments:

… stop spamming this subreddit with your pseudo-scientific bullshit. This entire article screams that whoever wrote it has a tiny penis and is desperately trying to compensate by showing that he has a lot of testosterone.

This article was meant to analyze a race-realist analytic method, not to be a scientific article for peer-review and publication. As such, venturecapitalistcat clearly did not read the article. How then does he/she know the size of my penis and the level of my testosterone? Even if such were known, what does that have to do with the article?

Another commenter swampswing:

… this article just screams “I have a tiny deformed penis”.

Again, why is it that people divine small penis size when information does not conform to their social stereotypes? Whether speaking about me or the poster, such comments speak to the level of brainwashing in Anglospheric countries.

More importantly, theunstopable_cam states:

I’m pretty sure the media doesn’t spread lies about testosterone levels in pop culture.

No it does not but it spreads lies about penis size, influences desirability and props up certain ethnic groups.

UPDATE: 2018-05-31: vin on AnthroScape comments:

looked more into that site- it’s apparently ran by some weird fuck that has a problem with asian male stereotypes and is obsessed with asian stuff
just look at his page: it literally has the great wall of china at the top :lol:

would take his data with a grain of salt

So if I list 150 peer-reviewed studies, extract the data, make multiple caveats and perform an analysis, I am a “weird fuck” with “a problem”. However, if you claim that “indians and asians” have the “smallest peckers of any race, and more feminine demeanors” without any peer-review validation, this is not a problem. Clearly, we all must bow to such a tour de force of logic.

John Carter (2012)

Source: Wikipedia

A former army captain Euro-American male John Carter finds an amulet which translates him to the planet Mars. He is a desirable heterosexual male and predictably finds a European-looking, scientifically-minded Martian princess love interest. He had a former European human wife and the movie is apt to display/promote his upper chest nudity [visual assault of European masculinity]. The movie is predicated upon the existence of male European-looking immortal creatures who pull the strings behind the scene, managing martian and earth histories for thousands of years. This of course, will change, because European male Carter desires it to be so [European males control the destinies of everyone theme].

Carter stands against an army of savage martian warriors BY HIMSELF and decimates them [the European male as innate warrior theme], two ‘good’  ethnic martian groups (one humanoid, the other with four hands) desire that he save their respective kingdoms [the European male as saviour theme].

He slays a large, angry, white ape-creature and gains the approval of the four-handed martial martians. Apparently not tired from fighting the ape, Carter then slays the present aggressive and very seasoned warrior king of the martians with ONE swing of his sword [for such is the might of the European male]. But then again, European males are quite apt at learning non-European warfare in a short time-frame (e.g. The Last Samurai).

He then goes by himself to free the good humanoid martian empire from the bad humanoid martians [the European male is self-sufficient and will overcome any challenge theme]. The four-handed aliens have nothing better to do that they give up their deeply embedded cultural way of not flying to mount an aircraft and come to Carter’s aid [for such is the might of the European male that he can inspire change to centuries old cultural traits in non-European aliens].

He proposes to the martian princess, she accepts [because marrying a commoner from another planet who you know for some weeks is so logical]. He thus becomes martian royalty [for such is the destiny of the European male: to rule non-Europeans as their king]. Blah blah more Euro-heterotica (see nomenclature).

Turns out that this movie is based on a book written by Edgar Burroughs, the man who gave us Tarzan, the European male who becomes king of the African jungle when native Africans couldn’t do the same, for such is the might of the European male that even wild animals can be subjugated by the strength and intelligence of the European male.
