Women Only Want To Date Tall Men With Big Penises, Wide Shoulders And Narrow Hips

size mattersSo here’s the deal ladies: you like big cocks. You do! You may say that size doesn’t matter, but you’re a liar. Science has recently discovered that despite the old standard of “it’s not about the size, it’s about how he uses it,” you really don’t mean a word of it. Sorry.

As recently reported in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, head researcher, Brian Mautaz, took 105 Australian women to see how they rated males when it comes to attractiveness. Asked to look at life-size video clips of naked dudes who varied in shape, height and flaccid penis size while disregarding their faces, the women were asked to rate the men on a scale from 1 to 7 on ”total sexual attractiveness, rather than assessing individual characteristics.”

Their findings? “We show that penis size actually is important on some level and, importantly, it interacts with other traits,” explained Mautaz. And as we’ve said before, science doesn’t not lie.

It was also found that the size of a dick not only had a strong influence on attractiveness, but once you threw that large member on a tall man, this was even more appealing to the ladies who participated in the study. It also translates to height being just as important to women as penis size, but yet shorter men who were lucky enough to have a fairly good size cock, were then ranked higher than those with small penises, although they still lost in the attractive game when it came to those tall, well-endowed gentlemen. This is sad, because it actually fulfills the stereotype that women really do what tall dudes with big dicks. I’m sorry small dudes with little to average penises.

And while all of this may come off as pretty superficial, it’s suggested that the inherent need to keep the species going could be to blame. Just as men tend to see hips as a way to prove fertility, a woman’s longing for a penis that is on the larger size, or at least above average, could be steeped in the same reasoning within our brains — subconsciously so.

However, there is hope for those who aren’t exactly living up to the “down there” size, because body shape, once that part of the study was revealed to the women, became more important than height and large family jewels:

Based on the women’s answers, the researcher calculated that height was as important as endowment in a male’s attractiveness, while wider shoulders and narrow hips was more important than both combined.

So there you go, ladies. You don’t want what you think you want. You want something that looks like it’s been sculpted into pure perfection. And apparently, I’m not attracted to Zach Galifianakis after all, and I really want Ryan Gosling just like everyone else. I’m confused by this news, but I guess I’ll have to deal — and so will you.

There’s nothing worse than starting a weekend knowing that everything you thought was true is not. So, reach for the wine right now — it will soothe your pain.

    Not long ago I read that (IIRC) about 85% of women not only wouldn’t marry a shorter man, they wouldn’t even want to date one.

    That may sound like a problem for shorter men, but it’s a problem for taller women too because men have a lifetime of evidence taller women aren’t interested in them. One tall woman was only getting a few clicks a day on her online dating profile, so as an experiment to see what the problem might be she began to change or avoid some or her particulars that might seem overwhelming, like her Ivy League education. Nothing had much effect, until she made herself shorter. Interest skyrocked to many, many times the previous level.

      Above I said 85% of women wouldn’t date a shorter man. Actually, I see now it was 89%. Of the remaining 11%, “Only seven percent would accept someone who was their height, and just four percent would allow for a shorter guy.”

      My college roommate was like that, and I always thought it was a shame. My mom is half a foot taller than my dad, and they’ve been happily married for almost 27 years. Her friends asked her when they were dating if she was sure, and she basically said that it took her long enough to find a man she wanted to marry and have kids with, so why waste time looking for a TALL man she wanted to marry and have kids with.

      Also, seriously, who judges penis size by the flaccid size?

    • Lastango

      I see elsewhere that only about 15% of American men are 6′ tall or more. Couple that with selective requirements regarding looks, education, income, etc., and a tall woman will soon find herself hunting for a needle in a haystack. There might be other limits too; for instance, if she’s older, she’s competing against younger women for the limited supply of eligible men who are still single. Just guessin’, that might put her target market as 1% or less of the population. I hope things worked out for your roommate.

      “Also, seriously, who judges penis size by the flaccid size?” Surely not! And thickness matters too. The smart modern girl carries a tape measure.

      I must REALLY be in the minority because I’m 5′ 10″ and my husband is 4′ (yes he’s a dwarf). There is almost a two foot difference in our height (even more so when I’m wearing shoes), but I never considered his height, and fell in love with his heart. Honestly, most guys I dated before I met my husband were shorter than me, but I never considered someone’s height a make or break decision when dating. However, when it comes to the jewels, just because a guy is small, that doesn’t mean his package is too. My guy can put a lot of average height men to shame ;)

      I gotta say, as a taller lady I haven’t found this at all. Ever. I’m 5’10 and proud of it, have always been honest about my height and still got heaps of dudes messaging me when I did the online dating thing.

      I’ve also dated guys who were my height or a little shorter, and without exception they had a bigger problem with it than I did. This is also something my tall friends have experienced. We don’t especially care if we’re taller than our boyfriends when we wear heels–but they do. They care a lot!

      So trust, it’s not all about tall ladies being picky and demanding. Some shorter dudes will jerk themselves right out of the running.

      Sometimes I feel too tall at 5’6-and-a-half! I’ve been open to dating shorter men, but my ex was 5’6 as well and I swear it had a huge negative impact on the relationship! It was like my very personhood was emasculating to him. When we broke up, he started dating a girl who is 5 feet nothing and less than 100 pounds, and I began dating a man who is 5’10. I don’t know. I want to say that I’m above this evolutionary $hit, but it seems easier just to date within the height dynamics, for the sake of the man’s ego.

    • Amanda

      I am 5’5″ & my boyfriend is 5’1″ & it’s never bothered me a bit. I’ve gotten plenty of remarks from other people about it, but honestly, I think those people are quite shallow. I would never turn down a guy because of his height.

      My boyfriend treats me very well. As cheesy as it sounds, I’d rather have a short guy that treats me like a princess than a tall asshole.

    Yup, this is exactly how me and the other gals go about this dating thing. We demand to see the goods before we go out with someone. Or use our laser sight to take a look through his pants. There’s also an app for that.

    • Amanda Chatel

      I wish I had laser sight. It’s so unfair that I don’t. Ugh.

    • Chuck

      I wish they had an app for vaginia tightness!

  • Kirsten

    It sounds like scientists asked women to judge men’s attractiveness using only their physical characteristics, and then called them shallow for judging men’s attractiveness by their physical characteristics.

    • array528

      You’re just projecting blame because you know you are one of those bigoted women who won’t date under 6’2″…

    • Mark King

      I don’t think there is a correlation between size and stature.Do all short women have small breasts.No!This is scarry but 5’6″ but have 6.5″ and thick with a slight curve.Where or how does my little olé stature rate me.

  • Natalie

    The n for this is incredible small. I’ll believe it more when they survey 100,000 women. Also, The David is incredible and everyone should go see it in person.

    • Learn some maths

      The n isn’t small. For a straightforward linear model with few parameters (height, shoulder to hip ratio, penis length) they’ve got enough numbers to get the variance of parameters to a reasonable level. Rule of thumb is number of parameters (3) * 30 = 90, so they’ve even accounted for a large number of outliers.

  • Jeanette

    It’s 105 women from one country. It means nothing in science until it can be repeated with larger, varied studies.

  • jackster12

    Well, I’m 6’1″… I’m also tall… so this comes as good news.

  • Matilda

    Well, I don’t see the problem, men have been judging and picking women based on our looks, rack, butt, and no on! We are visual as well and we have the same tendencies as men, we are more graceful about it though!

    • nope

      Typical female response.

      You are not as a whole more graceful, not by a long shot.

  • MR

    If I were single, I’d think you’d find me acceptable, but I’m only Alle’s height. Which causes a question: How tall are rest of you guys? You’re 5’2”; Sam’s 5’7″, Jennifer, Jamie and Ashley? Did you notice how I put Ashley last. She’s taller than me. :)

    • Amanda Chatel

      I’m not 5’2″, and I’ve never dated someone less than 6′.

  • Kaleb

    I’m 6’2″ and have broad shoulders and a narrower waist, but it doesn’t seem any easier for me to pickup women.

    I don’t know why you’re making fun of the scientists so much. It’s n=105 subjects, which everyone knows is not large enough to be statistically significant even if they’re random and representative of the larger population.

    This article is only partially true I believe. Women may like the look of a big penis, but we should tell the truth here..”most” women do not really care all that much about the bigger sized penises. Also, “most” women do not care too much for having a guy with a big penis for sex and damn sure do not like to orally pleasure a hung guy. It is a guaranteed fact that guys just know how to pleasure hung men better than women.

    I am a good looking, bi white male. I am very clean, healthy and ddf. I happen to prefer well hung men myself. I
    would love to meet some very well hung men. I am a guys guy..totally
    straight acting and as such very much so able to keep anything on the
    real down low.

    I would love to talk to any well hung men out there, so please hit me up guys!
