Some evidence against a correlation between thumb length and pen!s length:
(a) Extensive Anthropometric & Biomechanics data shows that the standard deviation of the erect pen!s across a statistically significant range of adult males is much larger than the standard deviation of the thumb found amongst adult males.
(no on-line copies of the reference material that I have to hand have been found, but the following two links give sample indication of the disparity seen in a variety of sources.
(b) Growth of thumb in the childhood/pubertal/adolescent/adult male is much less significant than growth of the pen!s during the same periods, also growth changes do not occur in phase (in step) with one another. If there was any genuine thumb - pen!s correlation it would be maintained before during and after puberty.
(c) The length of the erect pen!s of the adult male varies measurably with a range of variables including temperature, level of arousal, and frequency of sexual activity. There is no similar variability in the length of the thumb.
(d) pen!s length varies significantly between flaccid and erect states in some males, and much less significantly in other males. There is no corresponding variability in the length of the thumb.
I would be very interested to read thoughts and / or see evidence refuting any of the above observations.
The thumb-pen!s correlation myth is largely perpetuated by frustrated women who like to imagine the private dimensions of men when seeing them in a normally clothed condition.
Not necessarily and not drastically bigger than shorter men. It really depends. You have tall men with tiny ones and tall men with larger ones. Race definitely determines size, but not necessarily height. A way you could determine it is by looking at a guy's thumb. It will always be 3 times the lenght of his thumb, so bigger hands often equals well....bigger.
I am marginally over six foot tall, and have a thumb length of 7.7cm. Your three to one correlation would equate to a pen!s length of 23.1cm
It that were accurate, I imagine that very many more women would have quite enthusiastically made my acquaintance than has in fact been the case.

OK, if you read my answer again, it should be obvious I was joking. People come up with lots of amusing theories, but the fact remains male genital size is completely unrrelated to height, weight, foot size, hand size, nose size, ear size, skin pigmentation, or any other physical trait.
Yep, promise you it works....don't ask how I know that....then what also works is take the guy's middle finger as far down as you can towards his palm and then the distance from where it reaches until the top of his finger is also the lenght. :)
Lol. Fair enough, I do know of a few guys however where that ( I read it in a magazine once) has worked perfectly. :). So for some I would say it is true. I don't believe it does apply to all though.
I did the same thing you did. Only I didn't have to measure his pen!s to prove the theory wrong. A 12 year old cannot possibly have an 18cm long pen!s.
Yeah, I knew - sorry ! didn't expect you to have done any different, just being a bit cheeky / silly.

Nor is there any correlation between:
the size of any of the fingers nor the hands nor the feet
and the male genitalia.
I measured the length of my brothers thumb, times by three and he could not possibly have a pen!s that long. He's 12.
Typically, if you take a guy's shoe size and double it, you'll have an accurate measurement of his sexual organ.
I agree neither shoe size nor thumb size has any correlation with the size of the male genitalia.
three times as big as the thumb? Haha I am going to test this next time I see my boyfriend!
There is no correlation between the size of a man's thumb and the size of his genitalia.
From my experience, no. Although more heavy set men are smaller than others.
You only measured his thumb ?
what sort of evidence is that meant to be ?
it would only be useful tho if it worked for everyone tho......
I dont think height matters, you could be short and be "big"
im not being shallow im being ....... shallow :P
According to my Mum this theory isn't always right.
omgosh LOL thats a hilarious theory XD
Thunb size has....it works. Try it. :)
you can see in your boyfriend lol...
No, shoe size doesn't correlate.
Dont be so shallow Euan!
But most of the time :)
