Abuja - The never ending debate about the size of a man’s package is heating up again.
And, surprise surprise, the results of a new survey have found that the size of a man’s family jewels really does make a difference to women, with 105 Australian women rating tall men with long penises as being most attractive.
The women were asked to view 53 computer-generated images of generic male figures with varying heights, body shapes and flaccid penis lengths, but were not told they were participating in a study about penis size.

All this ‘beating-around-the-bush’ was in response to the accusation that previous studies have been flawed by asking women too directly.
"Since penis size is a sensitive subject, it's hard to determine whether females lied or 'self-deceived' in their responses," said lead author Brian Mautz, a postdoctoral researcher in evolution and sexual selection at the University of Ottawa.
The women also tended to gaze longer at the “larger” men, making the results undeniable and directly contradicting claims that penis size is unimportant to most females.
But one question that researcher’s still can’t answer: how big is big enough?
"We didn't find an idealpenis size or height," Mautz explained.
