It’s a case of erectile exaggeration.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, who famously ripped the medical community over breast implant myths final summer season, is again with one other physique half bombshell — that males’s penis sizes are exaggerated in research. A video of his manhood myth-busting at the moment boasts greater than 430,000 views on TikTok.
“The typical size could also be shorter than you suppose!” reads the caption to the revelatory clip, which Youn posted Tuesday in response to another video through which a girl mentioned she most well-liked the “common size” of 5 inches to one thing greater.
“Research present that the common size of a person’s erect junk is 5.15 inches,” defined the TikTok doc, who has over 7.3 million followers on the platform. “However the true size might be lower than that as a result of most males with small wieners most likely wouldn’t consent to being concerned in these research.”
The cheeky plastic surgeon concluded the video with a jab at fellow social media doctor Richard J. Brown — who goes by @TheRealTikTokDoc — writing that the statistic “means Dr. Ricky Brown most likely isn’t within the first percentile like he thinks, however most likely extra just like the fifth.”
Suffice it to say, the phallic factoid had social media rolling.
“Omg… please say ‘erect junk’ extra … that caught me off guard. I wheeze laughed,” wrote one fan within the feedback.
One other added, “I really feel higher about myself now thanks,” to which Youn replied, “You’re welcome.”
“You’re proper i didn’t consent partake in these research,” joked one TikTok wit, insinuating that he sported a tiny tallywacker.
Youn — who also went viral in September after revealing why individuals ought to by no means sleep within the nude — doesn’t immediately point out the analysis he’s citing within the clip. Nonetheless, a 2019 survey of sexually active college students discovered that the common “self-reported erect penis size” (6.62 inches) was “better than present in earlier research through which researchers took measurements.”
That appeared to counsel “that most of the males embellished their responses,” per the analysis. It additionally maybe throws a monkey wrench into a 2016 study that discovered that males’s penis sizes, significantly amongst millennials, are getting greater.
Fortunately, which means a possible sexual companion apparently not wants to attend till hanky-panky to find their date’s dimensions. In a viral video from October, fellow TikTok physician Karan Rajan described how one can measure a man’s manhood by merely glancing at his palms.
