Men From the Sticks, Have Bigger ...


cowboyThe saying that "Everything is bigger in Texas" may extend beyond belt buckles and cowboy hats. The medical journal Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine reported results on a survey of 6,200 boys that shows a "modest though significant difference … with respect to penile size between urban and rural populations."

To put it bluntly, country boys are hung like the horses they ride.

They theorize that it has something to do with their diets -- urban guys grow up eating processed foods while rural guys eat more fresh vegetables picked straight from the garden and farm-fed beef.

Now usually, I scoff at these scientific sex studies. I mean, men getting aroused by the smell of pumpkin pie? Give me a break. But this one I support. Why? Because, per my own personal studying, I've found this to be completely true.

I may live in the city now, but I thank the good Lord above that I was raised Southern, growing up on 26-acres of land without a neighboring house in sight. The boys drove pick-up trucks and if you went into any bar, you'd see a slew of cowboy hats and boots.

It wasn't until I moved up to NYC that I realized how very lucky I had been behind closed doors. I quickly learned that even the smallest Southern encounters were considered average elsewhere, and just how small "small" truly could get. 

Not that every country mouse is bigger than every city mouse. But, overall, let's just say they definitely know how to breed 'em in the country.

The study was conducted not to help rural areas become more populated by enticing women to give up city life for a sudden urge of fresh air, but to establish a "baseline set of data for tracking male puberty onset." In normal people's terms, to try to figure out the cause of why puberty ages are shifting. Though the reason behind the study isn't nearly as sexy as the findings, it does give us an excuse to make cheesy sexual references and all that junk (zing!).

Save a horse, ride a cowboy, indeed.

In your experiences, think there's truth in this study?

I don't believe it. Diet can not change genetics.

The "modest yet significant" difference in length is 0.15 inches? That's not exactly something for city boys to be hanging their heads in shame about...

Well, my city boy is just fine, thanks!

But personally, I believe puberty ages are shifting because of all the frankenfoods.

SAMNMAYASMOM you are just wrong on that one. Do you know that when men overeat and gain weight their penis size can shorten. Now that doesn't mean all fat guys have small willies, but it does mean that their willy is smaller than it would be if they weren't a fat guy. And how do we get fat? OUR DIETS!!!

:)  I'm single and I'm willing to test this theory out if anyone has a guy or two lined up!

The country guy is just sexier in general because he is a real man, not some twit getting his nails done and waxing off his body hair.

It's not the size of the ship, its the motion of the ocean.  From my experience Bigger is not always better!
