Penile Subcontinence

Are Indian men too short for condoms?

The Indian Council of Medical Research says Indian penises are too short for standard condoms.

Condom failure rates in India range up to 20 percent; to figure out why, the council has “just concluded an extensive two-year study of the penis sizes of Indian men.” Council researcher:

“As per international standards, most condoms are 150 mm to 180 mm in length and 44 to 56 mm in width. But data collected in Mumbai till 2001 showed that 60% of the participants measured 126 to 156 mm in length and 30% between 100 and 125 mm.”

Translation: Thirty percent of Indian men are 1 inch short, and another 30 percent are 2 inches short.

Hey, this might be true of Bambaiyyas but if you said this in a public place in the North, you’d be lynched! Thing is, even if the average Northie (like Southie, get?) realised this was true, he would NEVER admit to it! And most certainly not in an snswer to a survey.

Update: I found an interview that ABC radio has done with Dr Chander Puri, one of the researchers: mp3 / transcript.
