It is a never-ending debate. What does a woman REALLY want in a penis? Everyone immediately jumps to size and girth, but it turns out there’s a lot more to the perfect pecker.The Journal of Sexual Medicine covers many sexy topics, not the least of which is just what a perfect penis looks like.
The root for the study came from examining “design decisions” while mapping out the aesthetic elements in surgically reconstructing a penis. Figuring this out is less about vanity and more about successfully reconstructing a “normal” looking penis for hypospadias patients.
Hypospadias is a condition wherein the uretha, the opening connecting to the bladder for urination, is not at the end of the penis. Most hypospadias repair surgeries are performed in infancy or early toddler-hood but the ultimate reconstructive surgery is typically done after the patient is out of puberty and finished developing sexual function.
One hundred and five women who participated in the study rated elements of the penis including function and appearance. From length to size and shape of the meatus, typically called the head, participants ranked elements on a scale from 1 to 5, least important to most important.
The Perfect Penis
The results told researchers a bit about what the ladies are looking for in their man’s equipment. Length fell to a mere sixth in importance. Girth ranked in third place. Condition, amount and location of pubic hair climbed up to second.
The Journal of Sexual Medicine covers a host of sexual health topics and this particular element was but a small portion of the overall work. For this reason, the study on the perfect penis remained fairly small, thus it is difficult to make broad generalizations. Given the data at hand, researchers could find “no single penile aspect that is essential.”
So when it is all said and done, the ladies still can’t give a straight answer about what they are looking for.
