Do you remember the professor from Missouri State University who recently said she needed thousands of penis images for a study? Well, she just stopped it.
Sociologist Alice Walker had collected penis images to investigate the relationship between penis size and self-esteem, but the tremendous public reaction has jeopardized the reliability of her research, saying it must now be over.
Her study attracted attention earlier this week after several publications reported that she offered a total of 3,600 photos of men over the age of 22 and over. Participants should also measure their genitals and answer questions, one of which was when they thought their penis size was below average, average or above average.
The Big Penis Trial Treats Self-Esteem
To be precise, Walker had to make sure that the penis sizes that men give away are accurate, but given the overwhelming response that the study has received, that would be Things have definitely been confused. She started the study on June 1
Walker said in an interview with Springfield News Leader that she collects photos through online portals, hospitals and nightclubs outside the Southwest Missouri so that no peers or friends felt rushed to participate in the study.
"We do not recruit locally, I do not want something getting dicey, you do not want something unpleasant to happen." She said:
Despite the sensational way in which her studies have been reported on by various publications, Walker says that it is indeed a legitimate field of study and that she follows all guidelines of participant safety.
If Walker had continued to investigate the relationship between penis size and male body dysmorphism, which is rarely talked about in society. She is also particularly interested in our bias for size or how larger penises are revered in the culture. She wants to know how "this worship affects people".
Unfortunately, she will never get answers to these questions, at least not right now. She still believes that the relationship between penis size and self-esteem is a worthwhile research area, as she says in a press release, but given the scale of the response, the project simply can not go on.
"The reliability of the study as a whole has been compromised."
An interesting thing about the perceived male male size
Although the study will never take place, Walker says that she still has an interesting experience with the first photos she had received with her as the men measured her penis. She says there are a number of submissions from men with above-average penises who thought they were average. Hardly in the middle of its data pool, the study already showed an interesting discrepancy between the actual size and the perceived size.
The photos have since been destroyed.
