Men, Your Penises are Shrinking

The icecap may not be the only thing shrinking in the Arctic. The genitals of polar bears in east Greenland are apparently dwindling in size due to industrial pollutants.

Other studies have said other males' genitals, including human, have been shrinking, along with levels of sperm viability.

So this is the way the world ends.

Not with a bang, but with an exclamation of "don't worry, it happens to all men."

But testes are incersely proportional to brain size. So perhaps men are just getting smarter (and women less promiscuous).

I think it's a generational thing.

So this gives gives Aaron a new pickup line. "Hey, you know my dick is probably bigger than your boyfriend's."

Only 1" of it is Jewish. So you can still have hope for its future.

Probably not industrial pollution, but increased levels of estrogen found in the environment.  Because the increased levels were detected at the time the pill became available (and only in western countries where the pill is available), the theories are that the estrogen is making it's way through the water supply from the excess levels flushed from women's bodies.

Conclusions?
1. Women are the cause of dick shrinkage -- the opposite of what is supposed to happen.
2. The urban legends about African men having larger penises may actually become true one day.

"(and women less promiscuous). "

Uhmmm at least in my experience, that's actually false. Especially in girls <30 YO.

But then again, i'm not that older, so other more "experienced" folks could enlighten us :)

"The urban legends about African men having larger penises may actually become true one day"

Actually it's true in a vague sort of way -- there are more black men with large dicks than any other race, but on the flip side there are a lot of them with small dicks too (although the Asians win hands down on being under-endowed).

Penis size follows a typical bell-curve distribution (an apt name), and each race does have a slightly different distribution profile.

As a slightly simplified overvie, for Asians the peak is low but the curve is flatter (so while the average tends to be small, falling outside the "norm" is not all that uncommon), caucasians fall somewhere in the middle (and that can even be broken down fairly reliably by nation; Americans have a slightly lower peak then Europeans, and amogst Europeans there is a statistically significant deviation between nations), and people of African descent have around the same peak as caucasians but (as with asians) the curve is flatter, so while the mean size is more or less equivalent, extremes of length are more common (in both directions)).

(Don't ask me how or why I know this.)
