    Kinda interesting, they compared the ration in size between index and ring fingers to stretched flaccid penis length.

    Judging penis size by comparing index, ring fingers

    By Thomas H. Maugh II, Los Angeles Times

    Penis length cannot be determined by how big his hands or feet are -- those and other supposed indicators have been widely discredited for years. But now a team of Korean researchers has produced what may be a more reliable guide: the ratio of the length of his index finger to that of his ring finger. The lower that ratio, the longer the penis may be, the researchers wrote Monday in the Asian Journal of Andrology.

    Dr. Tae Beom Kim, a urologist at Gachon University in Incheon, Korea, and his colleagues studied 144 men over the age of 20 who were undergoing urological surgery for conditions that do not affect the length of the penis. 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.

    Although it may seem like the results are coming out of left field, they actually are not. A variety of studies suggest that the ratio of the two finger lengths is determined by prenatal exposure to sex hormones, both testosterone and estrogen. It is not unreasonable to assume that penis length might also be.

    Men and women are what is termed sexually dysmorphic in terms of finger lengths. In women, the index and ring fingers are generally the same length, while in men the index finger is generally shorter. Researchers from UC Berkeley created a stir in 2000 when they reported that lesbian women tended to have a ratio of the two finger lengths that was more typical of men. But the situation was more complicated for men. The team found no difference in the ratio between gay and straight men unless they had several older brothers -- a factor which had previously been linked to being homosexual. Such men were found to have an unusually low ratio of the finger lengths.

    Other recent research has suggested that men with a lower ratio have a more symmetrical face and are more attractive to women, a phenomenon known as the "sexy ratio." And just last year, researchers from Warwick University and the Institute of Cancer Research in Britain reported that a man's risk of developing prostate cancer is related to the ratio of the two digits. Men whose index finger in longer than their ring finger were found to be one-third less likely to develop prostate cancer.

    Digit ratios are noninvasive and easy to measure and thus may provide a surrogate for studying prenatal development in men, wrote Dr. Denise Brooks McQuade of Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. in an editorial accompanying the study.

    My ratio is almost exactly 1:1. My index finger and ring finger are the within a 1/16th on an inch. Does ayone have an idea of what a ratio of 1:1 implies?

    I want to laugh at this.

    But anyway, will give it a try.

    My ring finger is slightly longer. What does that mean?

    Article invalidated. Next. :rolleyes:

    Although now that I'm looking, my ring finger is about 1/2" longer than my index finger. Not sure what that means...

    "...measured penis length immediately after the subject had been anesthetized." ???

    Did the paticipants KNOW they were in the study? I'd hate to think if I ever went in for surgery, that the nurse would be tugging and stretching my dong......now, if they want to molest me during a sponge bath afterwards, that's a different story. :)

    And given all that, do we really believe that they didn't work those guys up with a full on robot chubby to really measure them?

    Thankfully, and seemingly appropriately, my index finger is noticeably shorter than my ring finger...yes...

    Although, apparently, I am at a greater risk of prostate issues.

    My ring and index fingers are close to identical. Does that mean I'm a bloke? One with a big cock at that?

    Oh, just re-read! Got it mixed up! I'm a typical woman. Phew!

    LOL WTF?!?? Again another study that leaves me clueless, each ring finger on both of my hands are significantly longer than my index fingers respectively.... so this again means what.... and the length thing.... doesnt add up at least for me ;)

    I am always puzzled by these endevours
    to tell about penis size in the most
    convoluted indirect ways.

    Why are people doing that?

    There's this method I know, its amazingly accurate;
    You take the mesuring device of your choice and
    you use it to mesure... wait for it... the penis.
    As people are obviously fascinated with it
    why are they not simply doing that?
    I for one, have never turned anyone down
    that wanted to mesure mine directly.

    Judging penis size by ummm... penis size!
    who knew?

    Just a thought

    The lower the ratio, the larger the penis? That makes no sense. I am like completely average and my ring/index finger are pretty much the exact same length, which means their ratio is as low as it gets, right?

    Mine are exactly the same too. Don't know what it means, except that I am able to stick both fingers into my nostrils at the same time. :)eek: eewyuuu!)

    My pointer finger is about 8.4 cm, and my ring finger is about 8.6. Pretty good ratio, I'd say

    No, that means you are a woman. :rolleyes:

    By "lower" they mean a large difference between index and ring fingers. I.e. the longer the index finger is compared to your ring finger, the larger your penis.

    hilarious.
