Role of DHT in secondary development of male genitals

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. That if prenatal androgen exposure were the primary determinant of penis size, autistics and gays would all have giant schlongs. It doesn't matter if the prenatal androgen exposure is what's causing them to be gay/autistic, since prenatal androgen exposure has been correlated with autism and homosexuality.

    But again, I was just using that inference to expose the flaw in the logic of his statement that 'the fetuses production of DHT is the most significant factor' in determining penis size.

    Interestingly though, The Kinsey report included a study that showed gay men to have longer than average penises, but the methodology was flawed.

All this could be total nonsense, but just observations I guess.
    The placenta acts as a barrier allowing the diffusion of nutrients, oxygen, etc but preventing the mother's blood supply from mixing with the fetuses directly. A woman with high testosterone wont necessarily bear a child with high testosterone (though I'd guess that they're more likely to produce one with hyperactive adrenals and therefore marginally higher test levels). So the mother's androgen levels will neither effect the child in a normal pregnancy, nor will they be predictive of her son's androgen levels.

    And as for different ethnic groups packing, I played sports at an innercity highschool and I can tell you that's a complete lie.

    Differentiation of sexual morphology will be complete before maternal blood is circulating through the placenta.

  5. Veeeeeerrrrry interesting. I'm fine on the penis size issue, but I'd like to go back in a time machine and add GH or whatever where necessary to help give me more than 5' 8" height Make me feel better and tell me its predetermined in the fetus!

    lol I think it's pretty funny/sad how you come on these boards to lord your intellect over everyone. Clearly you're just too knowledgeable to learn anything here and you treat contributing your knowledge like a chore, having to stoop down to the average hobbyist's level seems to sicken you. So tell me, what exactly do you come here for?

    I told you before, I understand the point you were trying to make and it was legitimate. I misunderstood your post originally due to your ambiguous phrasing.

    Stop trying to validate your own self-esteem by being a pompous jackass, that's not a sign of legitimate intelligence. If anything, it's a sign of a tiny dick, and in that case this really is the thread for you.

    linear growth probably can be increased even in normal people with GH if its administered at the right time. You have to administer it before pubertal estrogens cause permanent epiphyseal closure (aromatase inhibitors can delay this)

    yeah I definitely had me some pubertal estrogen excess, that is for sure. started working out too young as well probably.....i think maybe as young as 15? I'm probably lucky I made it to 5' 8"............

  9. Gay men do, on average, have longer, thicker penises than straight males. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10410197

    all that study really demonstrates is that gay men are more apt to report that their penises are bigger than straight men when asked

    perhaps it was a male asking them?

    I suspect George Michael or Elton John had something to do with this "research".........

    It would undeniably make many people rich if it worked.
    On the road to bench pressing 400 pounds Currently over 360...

  13. it is pretty subjective. Even if taken from antectdotal evidence from lovers, that midget I hooked up with would totally report my penis as 3 inches longer than it is.
