The old wives tale goes that big hands on a bloke means a big knob, but is there any truth in it?
Well according to scientists it’s not about having giant fists it’s all about the size of your fingers. One finger to be specific, the ring finger.
Yes apparently having a longer ring finger than your index finger means you’re more likely to have a monster cock than a little vole. As an added bonus you’re also more likely to be handsome and athletic as well.
According to The Sun, experts believe the reason for this comes down to the amount of testosterone, the male sexual hormone, that blokes are exposed to in the womb.
Dr Carl Pintzka, from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology carried out a study which found that men with higher testosterone had a longer ring finger.
The relationship between the index finger and ring finger in particular indicates how much testosterone you have been exposed to in utero.
Dr Pintzka found a link between a longer ring finger and better physical and athletic abilities while people with low testosterone levels – and shorter ring fingers were better at verbal memory tasks, such as remembering lists of words.
Other studies suggested a link between a longer ring finger and a longer member.
It’s not all good news for those with a longer ring finger though, apparently higher levels of testosterone are linked to higher chances of prostate cancer.
Meanwhile Dr Pintzka’s study revealed high testosterone levels also came with an increased risk of developing ADHD, Tourette’s and autism.
