When it comes to a one-night stand, some guys just don’t measure up.
According to a recent study, women prefer girth over length when it comes to the size of a man they’d have a one-night stand with. In the experiment, 41 women were asked to examine 3D printed blue models of penises (Scientific Term: High Tech Smurf Junk), which ranged in size for both girth and length. When asked to choose which of the 33 models they would prefer for a one-time partner, women selected models with slightly bigger girths than what they selected for a long-term relationship. There was no difference in their preferences for length.
So, in some ways, this makes perfect sense. Larger girth is associated with bringing the clitoris closest to the vagina, which can help with orgasm, and I assume women are more concerned solely with sexual pleasure in a one-night thing than in a relationship, where there are other many factors to consider.
But in most ways, the general premise of this experiment just makes no sense to me at all. Because when I’m feeling a little frisky, my secret is to head to the nearest bar, ask at least five men to lineup and drop trou, and then just invite the girthiest (I am ignoring spell check’s assertion that “girthiest” isn’t a word; shut up, spell check!) to come on over to my place, am I right ladies?
Uh, I think you see the flaws in this logic. (The main flaw is that you would seem like a crazy person.) Seriously, sure, women might have preferences in the abstract about penises, but how often do you see one before you’ve pretty much already decided to hook up with a guy? Not often. And how often do you change your mind once you have seen it? I’m gonna say not very often for that either. Here are some things that are way more likely to make you decide to have a one-night stand than an around-his-business measurement: An insanely good kisser, incredible chemistry, the length of time since your last sexual encounter, an ill-advised desire to get “revenge” on your ex (not recommended). The point is, you might not be in love with a guy you hook up with for one night, but I seriously doubt you’re making that decision based on a body part you can’t even see in public.
