MEN generally prefer to have relatively small testicles, it has been confirmed.
As new research found that men with smaller testicles make better parents, men said that was probably the least important thing about having testicles.
Tom Logan, whose testicles are just under four centimetres long, said: “I’m very comfortable with the overall heft of my scrotum.
“I can walk freely and openly. Rarely do I catch my testicles on bicycle seats, gateposts or an old lady’s face when standing up on the bus.
“Meanwhile, sitting down is, and always has been, an absolute pleasure. I have actually had nightmares about what it would be like to sit on my own testicles.”
Professor Henry Brubaker, of the Institute for Studies, said: “The vast majority of the men we spoke to could not see the point of having large, unwieldy gonads.
“In much the same way that most woman regard massive breasts as a tiresome inconvenience, men see large testicles as a burden – as well as something which could lead to hip and lower back problems in later life.”
Professor Brubaker added: “There is some evidence that men with very large testicles are attracted to women with very large breasts – and vice versa.”
The study also found that men were not concerned about the possibility of lower levels of testosterone as most of them found the hormone to be ‘a bit of a bother’.
Meanwhile, more than 80 percent said that if they could they would just keep them in a jar.
