Small Penises and Fast Cars: Evidence of a Psychological Link (preprint) PsyRvix. The Abstract: “In this experiment, we manipulated men’s perceptions of the size of their penis compared to others. We gave them false information, claiming that the average size of the penis is larger than it really is, believing that on average these men will feel that relatively and subjectively their own penis is smaller; compared to those who said the average penis size was smaller than the true average. We then asked them to rate how much they would like to own a sports car. These facts and questions were buried among other items giving information and asking for product ratings, so our hypothesis was hidden from participants. We found that men, especially men over 30, found sports cars more desirable when they were made to feel like they had a small penis.” Hmm. I wonder if this technique can be used more widely?
