Chinese Men Do Not Have Tiny Penises

Chinese men have no reason to feel inferior about the size of their penises, according to a Hong Kong study which showed local men measured up to others elsewhere in the world below the belt. “Our conclusion is that Hong Kong people are no smaller than Western men, where their penises are concerned,” said Chan Lung-wai, director of the Urology Center at the Union Hospital, who headed the study. “There has always been the myth that westerners have bigger penises and their (sexual) ability is better.”

A group of scientists in Hong Kong spent five months from October last year measuring 148 ethnic Chinese volunteers aged between 23 and 93. The average length of their flaccid penises was 3.33 inches, which compared favorably with similar studies on other men overseas. Germans have average lengths of about 3.4 inches, Israelis 3.27 inches, Turks 3.07 inches and Filippinos 2.89 inches. Italians were the longest at 3.54 inches, and Americans averaged 3.46 inches.

The study did not measure the penises when they were erect.

And you thought your job was lousy. How would you like to spend five months measuring flacid penises? Of course, one wonders at the utility of measuring the members in question in that particular state of readiness.

    Consider the outcome if the subjects had measured themselves.

    “A group of scientists in Hong Kong … Chinese VOLUNTEERS…not erect” No doubt the “scientists” were Chinese. Next you will be reporting polls conducted by the DNC among registered Democrats as to which party is best equipped to govern.

    Ad just exactly what was the ulterior motive behind any of this testing? I suspect some inane sexual fetish of one sort or another, but then, I usually suspect sexual fetishes of one sort or another to be the driving force behind most human action. That’s just the sort of guy I am.

    Ah, the secrets of the inscrotable Orient!
    Stands to reason, Sun Yat Sen – hung like a bactrian camel; Chiang Kai Shek – Joe Stillwell called him ‘peanut’ (affectionately); and the Chairman – ever heard the refrain,
    ‘umma-mao-mao, umma-umma-mao-mao’?
    Now there was a 12″ RULER! Gotta di-di.
