Any statisticians out here who can explain either the methodology for such averaging of body sizing and how to take into account errors?
In fairness to men, whose average measured size is consistently well below their average self-reported size, they've probably made several measurements throughout their life, and when they say, "O HAI MY PEN0R IS X INCHES LONG", you can be pretty sure that X is the absolute maximum length they've measured themselves. Now if some researcher gives you a Playboy and then takes ruler to peen with their cold, clinical hands, is it inconcievable that you might fall a little shy of your all-time high score?
