Cultural Bias

Posted by mmarx on 10 Oct 2019 at 15:19 GMT

Your article appears to be making false assumptions based on cultural bias. "A larger phallus would increase friction relative to a smaller phallus. These potential complications of a larger penis suggest why the human penis has not evolved to be larger." This statement is not backed by any citation and while it may seem like an obvious conclusion in cases where men have been circumcised it is not true in unmodified human male anatomy. Increased friction is not caused by a larger phallus on its own, circumcision removes the natural ability of the phallus to move without friction, creating an artificial sexual handicap.
