Example text

According to the Brihat Samhita, the man who has perfectly matched testicles will be a king. The compensation for men with mismatched testicles is that they will be fond of sex. The question for non-Tibetan and non-Hindu males who have mismatched testicles and a fondness for sex, is why they think there might be something in phallomancy on the basis of the last reading, yet dismiss the rest as Eastern nonsense. Matters of size How big is big? How small is small? What is average? Where do you fit in?

Yet it appears that whereas for centuries this has played out as meaning ‘big’, among the Ancient Greeks the reverse was the case. Penile taste in Athens ran to the small and taut (in the plays of Aristophanes, diminutives such as posthion, little prick, were terms of endearment) with big penises considered coarse and ugly and only possessed (the Athenians said) by barbarians and, in their own mythology, satyrs, which were comic in a slapstick way, though we derive our more subtle ‘satire’ from the word.

In the decades since his death, Kinsey’s institute has continued to amass and correlate penile information extrapolated from many sources, including other research in which it engages (most recently the psycho-physiological sexual response in men) and the work of urologists involved in the relatively new area of augmentation phalloplasty (see Part 3, ‘Desperately seeking solutions’). It has backed away from the question of ethnicity. The institute website, sensibly one might think, does not give a single figure for the average worldwide erection, preferring to declare that this is between 5 and 7 inches, with a circumference of 4 to 6 inches – the founding father’s findings have not been invalidated by black highs and Asian lows.
