Does size relate to self-esteem?
A Missouri State University professor wants to know. She’s conducting a study on whether a man’s private parts are related to his level of self-esteem.
Assistant Professor of Sociology Alicia Walker wants photos for the study — before and after arousal images with measurements of length and girth in both.
That will also be followed by a short online survey and a phone or email interview.
The survey, which began June 4, will run until May 8, 2019. The goal is to collect data from 3,600 men.
“By doing this study, we hope to learn how men navigate their experiences in terms of self-esteem, sexual competence, tendency to use condoms, and anxiety about penis size or performance,” Walker writes on the survey website. “You will not get any personal benefit from taking part in this study. However, you will be contributing to the creation of scientific knowledge concerning both penis size and the experience of having a penis.”
Walker goes to great lengths to stress that the photos and measurements are anonymous and will not become public.
She tells would-be participants, “all survey information–including the pictures–are identified ONLY by a case number. There are no names or emails or other identifying information attached to this data.”
Further, Walker states all the images, interviews and data will be destroyed after six years.
