Italian Study Shows Male Genitalia Is Shrinking

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – If size matters, male private parts are shrinking, according to a new Italian study on sexuality.
The study’s leaders claim to have bona fide research that says the average size of a penis is roughly 10 percent smaller than it was 50 years ago.
The study doesn’t say how the research was conducted or give numbers. But it does provide several reasons for the shrinkage, including: weight gain, stress, smoking and alcohol.
Researchers also say air pollution has also been shown to “negatively impact penis size.”
