    da_blissmachine: I've heard that poor nutrition can inhibit penile growth. I lived in undernourished conditions up to the age of 18 and yet my dick is quite large. Is this belief also a fallacy?

    Poor nutrition can inhibit height, I know, but I'm not sure about penis growth. Though I'm 6'3". I was malnourished too; our family had nine kids and Dad made about five or six grand a year.

    Ineligible: I suspect that since maintaining the species is so biologically important, the genitals might be the last organs to be affected in malnutrition.

    It IS a good question. We could always ask that one anthropologist who had a whole bunch of (male) lovers in the Amazon. Lizot, was it?

    Ineligible: Interesting. I'd never heard of him, but indeed a Google search brings him up. Mind you, it looks like there is a huge anthropological war going on there, with allegations and counter-allegations, and books and articles everywhere.

    Lizot's rival Chagnon is accused of going after the girls (http://adam1.chez.tiscali.fr/) as well as much worse stuff, and Tierney (who wrote a book) is accused of making stuff up (http://www.psych.ucsb.edu/research/cep/eldorado/) - it's a real battle-royal.

    I wonder if anthropologists usually have sex with peoples they are studying?

    ORCABOMBER: I would've thought it would only matter if it was leading to hormone deffieciency, but tesoterone doesn't really need that much energy, and a dick isn't the most energy intensive organ in the world...

    Seriously.

    Not usually. They usually don't even come around the peoples they're studying. LOL Though as you once told me, National Geographic is every kid's first porno mag.
