Hungarians - that's too easy.

@JackFknTwist: Don't worry, my fine Irish pal. Based upon your posts here on Towleroad, I've never doubted that you could pitch a tent that we could all camp under. ;-) At the very least, you've got the bollocks of a bull.
Call me stupid, but I always choose a man based on looks, body and mind. I tolerate any kind of "tool" as long as I like the guy.

More likely a map of which Euro nations have the most liars and narcissistic, conceited guys. From my experience this is fairly on the mark.

The range is from 5 to just over 6 inches. Not enough reason to change vacation plans.

Silly, of course. Just like similar maps that claim to show different average penis sizes between states.
What is interesting, though, is why people engage in such exercises? Why do they seemingly WANT so desperately to believe that there is a difference in penis size between nationalities or between races or between regions of a country? Is there some profound underlying reason that would explain humanity's (actually men's) propensity to engage in war and in ritualized "war" (in the form of sports and other competitions)? Is there some core aspect of maleness/masculinity that drives all this?
I think so.

The map is based upon compiled evidence from dozens of published studies.

That said, these are *averages.* One should always be careful not to commit what's known as "ecological fallacy." That is, a single individual pulled at random from a population should not be assumed to possess the average characteristics of that population. Also, this map does not show standard deviation, so it is hard to know just how much variation exists among a given country or what the low-end and high-end of the range of sizes is in a given country.
Gosh, do I know how to take the fun out of something or what? ;-)

Being European (Dutch) and well travelled ... I must say this map is quite accurate.
For you Americans here: In Europe we measure from the base of our todger upwards.
And NOT like you Americans from the hole (your arse hole) up.
So what you see as 9 inches in the USA is about 6 European inches. (chew on this boyz)

I'd say it's right about the French but not about the Hungarians and the Russians (I'd switch those figures), and I have a lot more first hand evidence for those nationalities. And how could there be so many Romanian prostitutes if they're so challenged? Nah... only partially correct, and Eastern Europe (as usual) is misrepresented.
