A recent study of 4,100 men even confirmed as much. Almost 27% of men are unhappy with the length of their flaccid penis, whereas around 19% are dissatisfied with the length of their erect penis as well. The study also found that around 15% of men aren't happy with the girth of their privates.

However, another surprising study that was recently published may give these men a chance to rejoice. The research, published in PLOSOne, surveyed 545 fishermen's wives in Kenya about their affairs to find out about the causes and factors that influenced such behavior.

Around 6% of those women, 34 to be exact, admitted to having cheated on their partner. These women were then given a ruler and asked to give the researchers an accurate measure of their partner's erect penises. If there were any differences in estimates they went took the average of the two.

To their amusement, the results were not quite what they expected. It found that having a sizable penis may actually be a bad thing. The male fishermen who had been cheated on were found to have much larger penises than their counterparts whose wives did not have affairs; the cheated husbands had erect penises around six inches long, while those whose wives were faithful had erect penises measuring in at around five inches.

The report's authors wrote: "Surprisingly, a spouse with a longer fully erect penis was associated with increased likelihood of the women having extra-marital partnerships.

"From these results, every one-inch longer penis increased the likelihood of women being involved in extra-marital partnership by almost one-and-half times.

"Similarly, our qualitative data also support this finding. Women associated large penises with pain and discomfort during sex which precludes the enjoyment and sexual satisfaction that women are supposed to feel."

Another study conducted by the University of California Los Angeles and the University of New Mexico, found that women have even broken up with their partners because of their penis size. Out of the 75 females who took part, five said that they dumped their partners because their penis was too big.
