    Not sure if many of you on here have a genetics/human devolopment background ... but I wanted to share a theory my husband has come up with - and I thought I would share it - and see if there is any information you can share.

    As you know - most human charachteristics are genetically controlled. Eye color for example is controlled by a mutiple alele, multiple gene scenario - where a number of genes control the color, hue, shape, etc of the eye. however the real attributes are actually finalized by the environment. The types of protiens that are eaten by the mother - the type and amount of sunlight in the early years, the hormones a mother produces, and other factors determine some of the final attributes. The environment basically enables certain chemical reactions which helps to mold the final product.

    My husband states that penis size is very similar to this. Genetics plays a significan tpart - telling the body how much to grow, what shape, etc at makes the basic form a male child will become. But the developmental environment also molds what the body does as it grows. The two biggest factors involved when a Baby develops in a mothers womb are food (digested by the mother and entered into the blood stream) and hormones. Hormones are probably the biggest factor - as they can direct which protiens are created and in which amounts. It can cause electrical impulses that also may change development in one way or another.

    Anyway - to boil it down to the basics - he claims that orgasm, arousal, pleasure, etc. all cause the body to release special hormones and chemicals into the mothers blood stream. These substances influence the development of the child, and can actually trigger enhanced development of the child. He theorizes that if a woman has lots of arousal, lots of orgasms, and lots of sex during pregnancy then his offspring will have an increase in the development of the sexual organs in the child. This will give a female child a larger sex drive, larger organs, and lead to a more promiscuous life. This will also lead to a male son with a larger penis and such.

    Has anyone else thought of this? Does it hold any water or is he just trying to get me in bed more?

    Can anyone here trace their size to the parents activity when they were in utero? Can anyone compare their male children - say the first child you had you had lots of sex and orgasms and your child was larger - and your second child you didn't feel as well and you had less or no sex and your second son was smaller than your first?

    We are having a son, and when I was pregnant with our first we were very active and my son seems to be large. His cousin is significantly smaller and his parents were very inactive during pregancy due to complications. We are having our second, and it is going to be a boy. Should we try extra hard to make sure he is larger? Genetically he will never be a huge guy - but I definately do not want him to be small.

    Any thoughts or comments?

    Yes, he's trying to get you in bed more. Men and their theories. :biggrin1:
    On the other hand - why complain about that?

    I'm convinced that there is no significant diffusion of hormones from his semen into the fetus. Also, I think your overall hormone levels, health and nutrition is far more crucial to the child. Your husband's probably right to some extent , though; I think having a good sex life affects you - and thus has a positive effect on the baby. Enjoy sex, I say!

    :rofl: That is the biggest load of crap I've ever heard. :lmao: I'd be more concerned your husbands pea brain will be passed on to your children than his penis size. :tongue:

    Well... Don't you think that this is a case of the husband speaking from his secondary brain, tough? More like ...uhh... peanuts? (I know - I have the worst sense of humor!)

    Actually, I'm handing out plus points for trying to connect that to his primary brain! Instead of the typical "Me-you-sex"-approach, he actually has put some effort into theorizing the subject and implementing known science in this whole thing... :wink:

    I'm assuming now that first or primary brain is the top one
    (...yes, in the upright position!)

    While I have no formal education in genetics and child development, I don't share the same opinion as you do. At least in my family, penis size seems to depend on genetics (with the father being a big aspect of this, not sure where people get the idea penis size is passed by the mother) and a healthy diet growing up. If size is something you're concerned about, then perhaps another guy should do the honors for your third. I hope you have a very healthy and happy baby.

    Unless he's a geneticist, then he's got so much nothing to stand on. Tell him it's bullshit. If your first son got has a large penis, it's because of your shared DNA, not how often you have sex.

    Now, it is perfectly fine for a woman to have sex well into her third trimester as long as there are not complications related to the pregnancy. I just had my 3rd child and we were fucking (gently of course) until about a week before her due date. The orgasms will help the uterus contract (this also helps alleviate menstrual cramps).

    Large estrogen levels in the womb actually DECREASE the size of a male baby's penis, which reminds me... They actually have an accurate test for penis size now! Has anyone read this? There is a strong correlation between index/ring finger ratio and penis size. Men with longer ring fingers were exposed to more testesterone in the womb and tend to have larger cocks. Several independent studies have now established this correlation. It's not the length of the fingers, but the contrast in length between the two. Look for the longer ring fingers, ladies... BTW- It works with me. :biggrin1:

    From every doctor I've ever heard say it... Having sex when pregnant wont effect the baby in the womb at all........................

    Heard alot of them say it =)

    My suggestion is that if you dont want to have sex with him then just give him a few blow jobs a day... after a week or two he wont be asking for a while. Or you'll just spoil him and he'll expect it from now on :D LOL

    OP - how old is your first son and what makes you think he is big? Is there any correlation between prepubescent penis size and postpubescent penis size? Why are you concerned about the size of your sons' penises? Are there not FAR more important factors to worry about while pregnant?

    I find all of this terribly odd.

    thanks for the responses ... btw I really don't care the size of my children's endowments. I just don't want him to have a low self esteem when he is older, or ever go through getting made fun of if he is small. I have no idea if he is/will be small medium or large - just that he seems to be significantly larger than his cousin who is almost the exact same age (3 weeks apart). I found it very interesting that our actions today could have such an impact on his development.

    Look at the studies where they took identical twins and had them grow up in different environments. Different diets and different everything. If the food they eat could have that much difference on development - I am sure hormones in utero could have some effect.

    I was just curious what the thoughts are out there.

    My husband does have a genetics background, so I am sure it is not 100% bullshit - but you are probably all right that it is just a line to get into my pants (not that he has much trouble with that anyway)

    not complaining at all - I find it humorous and cute


    I agree with this completely - semen can not make it to the fetus for numerous technical reasons - however the arousal I feel and the orgasms, etc all cause hormones, testosterone, and blood sugar spikes through my blood stream - which does make it into the baby through the placenta.

    I agree genetics is the biggest part, but the more I think about it (with my limited genetics background - AP BIO in high school) I can see what he means - although I don't know I believe it. You mention a healthy diet growing up - that is pretty much what I said and what his theory is, only he adds a lot more importance on the very early development

    Thats pretty rude. To reiterate, I am not really concerned - I mostly thought it was an interesting theory and was curious if it held any water. I am not interested in any other men, just coming here to watch and fantasize. My children's size is really of no consequence to me, other than what I have already stated - to ensure they are as happy as can be.

    Thank you. I can't wait to meet the little guy 18 weeks from now!

    I haven't got the time to research this, but I remember hearing that at certain stages of male foetal development, releases of testosterone are required from the mother to aid "male" development (not sure what types). Is the release and production of testosterone in women related to sexual activity and orgasm? Is that why my lover has grown a moustache? :smile:

    Penis size isn't determined at birth or at childhood. The penis and testicles grow when the boy hits puberty and starts producing testosterone. If anything, it's the amount of testosterone during purberty that has the most significant effect other than pure genetics. And as for genetics, consider how similar sons are to the height of their father, or whatever other trait you want to choose from. Rarely is the son a clone of his father--it's a mixing of genes from both parents that determines any of that. That's why one can't blind figure out something like "he'll be this tall because his father is this tall." Same would go for penis size, I guess.

    But hey, why not have sex anyway? :tongue:

    I truly don't understand the interest in your offspring's genitalia size, by the way. Unless they have micropenises, I'm sure they're going to be fine regardless of the size.

    *wags penis at you*

    I'm not sure about the physical development but mentally, if your calm and happy for most of your pregnancy then you child will be more likely
    to be predisposed to that temprement and vicsa versa with anxiety and nervousness.
    I'm sure it's all linked to the hormones released in ure blood stream like oxytocin etc.
    So I guess if you want a happy baby keep your self happy especially with sex, but physicaly that might be a bit dubius, but you never know.
