Abstract: "Suggest women...prefer penises only slightly larger than average."

I'm not sure how this conclusion follows from the data, given that the preferred lengths were 6.3" and 6.4" respectively. Nearly all of the the reputable studies on penis size suggest an average erect length of slightly less than 6", but those measurements are uniformly bone-pressed for accuracy, whereas the models used in this study are certainly not. When we account for the thickness of the fat pad, this leaves a non bone-pressed measurement of approximately 5.4" for the average male. In other words, the reported female preferences are almost exactly a full inch longer than the real average, or about 18%. This is not slight, but significant.

sometimes you have to use a real life example to illustrate your point. The preferred size and girth are almost identical to the size of 2 rolls of Eisenhower silver dollars which certainly seems massive.
