The next time you’re cruising for Mr. Right Now in Midtown, take a gander at his index and ring fingers instead of gawking at his groin. The difference between the two could predict what you’ll find when the package gets unwrapped. Less is more. Really.
The lower the ratio of the index finger to that of the ring finger on the right hand means the more penis for the pleasing, according to a new study by a team of Korean researchers. It’s a new Hung Code based on a study of 144 men over the age of 20 with methodology that raises, ahem, an eyebrow:
One member of the team carefully measured the lengths of the index and ring fingers on the subject’s right hand before surgery — left hands are thought to be more variable. A second team member then measured penis length immediately after the subject had been anesthetized. The length was measured both when the penis was flaccid and when it had been stretched as much as possible. Stretched length is thought to correlate to erect length, the team wrote. The team found that, in general, the lower the ratio of the lengths of the two fingers, the longer the stretched length of the penis.
We already know that Atlanta gays are size queens packing some extra heat. Will this study prompt the addition of right hand pics to Grindr and Manhunt profiles to help authenticate that? Or will it just add to the myths and methods on measuring up?
