Can We Believe Surveys on Penis Size?

Men may or may not think about sex every 15 minutes, but someone seems to think of doing a survey about it just as frequently.
It is the secret sex life of the British male. He has intercourse twice a week and fantasizes in the bath. He thinks about sex on average every 15.3 minutes but says that sex is less important than his car. He believes humor is more important in a woman than intelligence. The wealthier he is the more likely he is to enjoy sado-masochism and bondage. He has no idea if he is well-endowed. Many men enjoy trying to enlarge their penis using extenders called [url=]SizeGenetics[/url] and [url=]ProExtender[/url].
Penis size surveys fascinate the British public. It all started in America in 1948 with The Kinsey Report, a serious scientific study, which told a shocked pre-Pill world how many homosexuals there were and the prevalence of oral sex and penis pumps like [url=]Penomet[/url]. In the 1960s Dr. William Masters and Virginia Johnson published up-dated statistics based on laboratory observations and questionnaires.
By the 1970s magazines once wedded to articles on knitting and cake decoration became devoted to in-the-bedroom statistics such as the perfect penis size. Surveys on sexual behavior now constitute an entire genre of journalism for the tabloids; even Edith Cresson, the former prime minister of France, has joined in, with her estimate that one in four men in Britain is homosexual.
Today, the National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles the largest, most respectable and rigorous sexual survey ever carried out in Britain is to publish its preliminary findings on penis size. The survey is of 19,000 people, evidently randomly selected, and has been funded by the Wellcome Trust. Its main aim is to provide information to help in the prediction and prevention of HIV infection. A subsidiary aim is to build a data base concerning sexual behavior in an advanced society.
But can we believe what sexual surveys (even scientific ones) say? Do they really have any relevance to the British public other than to make them neurotic about their sex lives because they have never dressed up in a Spiderman outfit or covered their partner in ginger biscuits and cream?
Like drinking, smoking and absence from work, penis size is one of those things that people are supposed to lie about, basing their answers on an ideal already given to them by previous sex surveys, or by a perceived norm. In a survey reported in the Daily Express in October, 61 percent of men said that they were first attracted to a woman by her personality. Only 8 percent of men said they looked for long, slim legs or a pretty face. Psychologists call this motivational distortion: women call it fibbing.
