Having More Sex Can Increase Your Manhood…Sort Of

Cheers to the good people at the University of Exeter for looking into the things that some blokes will want to hear. It's a pretty simple result that these researchers have found: more sex equals a bigger penis.

However, it's not as if you'll notice results after one, two, three or even ten sessions. The uni's study actually noticed that it's better off down the line, and we don't mean in 10 years or so - more like for your future children.

The increased sexual activity ends up producing anatomical changes downstairs and gets embedded into your DNA.

One more minor bit of information: The University of Exeter didn't study humans; they were actually looking at a species of burying beetle. However, just because the researchers weren't directly looking into our species, doesn't mean that their results can't be applied to us.

Dr Paul Hopwood from the Centre for Ecology and Conservation wrote on the university's website: "Although we don't know the ins and outs of how these genital structures relate to the reproductive success of each sex, our results show that sexual conflict over mating can lead to co-evolutionary changes in the shape of the genitals.

"Our research demonstrates the general importance of conflicts of interest between males and females in helping to generate some of the biodiversity that we see in the natural world."

They watched 10 generations of beetles and found that the ones who got down and dirty more, had kids down the line with a bigger Johnson. However, they found that more sex isn't necessarily good for the females because it 'reduces their ability to provide parental care'.

So these are tough results to weigh up.

One of the authors of the study, Dr Megan Head adds: "It takes two to tango, so when changes in shape in one sex leads to corresponding changes in the other sex this is known as co-evolution."

Results from the Good In Bed Survey found that nearly half (45 percent) of respondents wish their penis was longer. However, and unsurprisingly, nearly two-thirds of the group said the size of their manhood wasn't the big factor in pleasuring their partner.

More than 70 percent thought creativity in the bedroom was more important than size, 77 percent reckon it's sexual communication and 76 percent believe having a connection with the person is way better than having a big penis.
