Survey says! Short guys get laid more

Add this share


You won't be surprised to hear that gym bunnies and jocks score more tail than couch potatoes, or that younger guys outsex older ones. But shorter guys win too? Sorry, tall dark and handsome.

Right alongside fit, younger, thinner and healthier men in a recent survey, guys under 5’9” also reported more frequent sexual encounters than their lanky counterparts. Hey, wait a minute. We want to work at the Journal of Sexual Medicine. They get to interview hundreds of men about their sex lives and write about it all day. We just get to write about it all day.

“Coital frequency was higher among men with a height of less than 175 cm (5’9”).

Ew, boring. Way to suck all the fun out of it, researchers. We take it back. Throw in clinical environments they call “andrological centers” and a few “anthropometric parameters” like “past and recent morbidity,” and we like our jobs better.

While the journal does math and makes up words, we get to post video (above) of all the short celebs we’d totally do and photos (below) of hot gay guys of varying heights. For science.

Speaking of science, there are a couple of burning questions buried in the study that we have to divert our eyes from the hotness to point out. Most glaringly, the results are self-reported and men lie. So…  are shorter men more likely to fudge their responses? Anyone? Napoleon? And the 531 respondents to this particular study are decidedly straight. Do the results hold true for gay men? You tell us, because we wouldn’t kick any of them out of bed. Unless, you know.
