IT IS an all too common myth that many people believe that the bigger your feet, the “better endowed you are”.
But experts have now discovered that there is another body part that can actually represent the size of a man’s penis.
Scientists in Japan have found that it actually has a lot to do with the length of your nose.
The Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine team said men with larger noses had an “extended penis length” of at least 5.3 inches.
This compared to men with smaller noses who had an erect penis of 4.1 inches.
To gather their findings, the researchers examined 126 men within three days of death and measured their various body parts.
They took into account various factors such as height, weight and dimensions of the male soldiers.
To measure the penis, they stretched it out as far as possible.
The scientists then compared this length to different parts of the body – including the feet – that had nothing to do with the size of the penis.
The experts wrote in the journal Basic and Clinical Andrology: “The fact that nose size is related to SPL suggests that penis length may not be determined by age, height, or body weight, but was already determined at birth.

“Although our results are useless for forensic purposes, understanding the growth process of the penis or facial features can be very important for extrapolating fetal androgen levels and tracking male genital functions.”
All of the men were in their 30s and 50s, and the researchers said the size of your penis can also be an indicator of your age.
It’s important to note that this study was only conducted on Japanese men and was from a small group of people.
This means a larger sample would need to be tested to get an accurate representation of penis and nose size.
While scientists were debunking the myth that the size of your penis depends on your shoe size, a doctor recently revealed that “blue balls” is actually a real medical condition.
The term is usually used to describe a sexual situation that does not result in orgasm.
Some men often find that the skin covering their scrotum turns slightly bluish – which is said to happen when they haven’t “relieved” for a long time.
Australian family doctor Dr. Sam Hay said the problem is real, but it’s a temporary condition – medically known as epidydimal hypertension.
He explained: “I always thought blue balls were that urban myth you stay excited about [too] Long time your balls turn blue and they fall off and the only way to relieve it is, you know, have some fun and you have to get your partner to help you with that.
“I thought it was a perfect excuse for guys to drop out. But it is actually true.
“When you are aroused for a long time, a lot of blood flows into the testicles and increases the pressure.
“And if not [ejaculate] then that pressure becomes painful… I found that there are studies that prove it exists.”
He stressed that the pain will go away and if it doesn’t, you should see a doctor as it could be due to another problem.
