Objective To establish if the ‘myth’ about whether the size of a man's penis can be estimated from his shoe size has any basis, infact.
Subjects and methods Two urologists measured the stretched penile length of 104 men in a prospective study and related this to their shoe size.
Results The median stretched penile length for the sampled population was 13 cm and the median UK shoe size was 9 (European 43). There was no statistically significant correlation between shoe size and stretched penile length.
Conclusion The supposed association of penile length and shoe size has no scientific basis.
