Oh dear… Indian men letting the side down

Writing about web page

A survey of more than 1,000 men in India has concluded that condoms made according to international sizes are too large for a majority of Indian men. The study found that more than half of the men measured had penises that were shorter than international standards for condoms. It has led to a call for condoms to be provided in smaller sizes designed for Indian men. The two-year study was carried out by the Indian Council of Medical Research.

From BBC News – Incidentally this is the most-read story on BBC News Online right now. Oops.

  1. Perhaps an inapproriate choice of words here

    Over 1,200 volunteers from the length and breadth of the country had their penises measured precisely, down to the last millimetre.

    Seemed they had their on length and breadth measured – to be fair (and without being too indelicate) not sure whether I’d measure up if someone was standing there with a ruler?

  2. I would have thought it’s girth that’s the issue. Doesn’t matter if it’s stumpy, as such, because they just wouldn’t unroll them as far as other nationalities. But if the chaps are too skinny then they’re just going to slip off…

    This sort of story is always going to be of interest to the public, but it’s pretty abysmal stuff. I wouldn’t have it on the Beeb if I was in charge. Anyway, back in the real world…

  4. Aw, lighten up citizens. It’s like when the Guardian blogs publish something about celebrities or animals, and half the commenters immediately have a coronary because it’s not on a serious issue. We always need a little bit of the unusual in our news broadcasts. Try watching BBC Northwest Tonight where they very very obviously find something along that template for the final news article purely because, unlike many other local news regions, the main news is often unrelentingly grim.

    Now, we know the secrete of their success; with not all the blood flowing to the penis, these guys, Indian and Chinese, think and post 9 to 10 percent growth. Damn.
