Professor Wants Pics of Men’s Private Parts for Self-Esteem Research (Video)


A professor in Missouri actually wants the kind of pictures that get guys blocked from phone numbers. Buzz60’s Sean Dowling has more.

Guys, here’s a way to send dick pics without getting blacklisted from someone’s contact list. A Missouri State University professor is seeking at least 3,600 penis photos for a research project about how the size of a guy’s privates impacts every aspect of his life, Springfield News Leader reports.

Sociology professor Alicia Walker started the project in June and hopes to determine how a guy’s perception of his manhood impacts sex life, self-esteem, romantic relationships, and mental health. In addition to completing an online survey, participants need to send penis measurements (while flaccid and erect) and upload photos to verify size, according to the study website. Guys can also participate in an optional interview with Walker to provide further insight.

All subjects must be at least 22 years old, live in the United States, the United Kingdom, or Canada, and be comfortable with the study, the professor’s assistant explained in a Reddit post. Walker hopes to finish the project by the end of summer. (MensHealth.com reached out to Walker for more information, and will update the story if and when we hear back.)

So far, Walker said the biggest surprise is how many men underestimate their size.
