Men with teeny weenies, rejoice! Your well-endowed rivals are more likely to be cheated on by their wives, according to a recent study.
This may come to a surprise to of the Size Matters school of thought, but according to a recent Kenyan study it seems bigger isn't necessarily better.
The study interviewed 545 married couples in Kenya to decode relationships and explore why women indulge in extramarital affairs.
Couples were asked to measure the length of the man's erect penis - if their answers were different, researchers took the average of the two measurements - and the results showed that the longer the penis, the more likely the woman was to stray from her marriage.
"Every one inch longer penis increased the likelihood of women being involved in extra-marital partnership by almost one-and-half times," the researchers wrote. "Women associated large penises with pain and discomfort during sex which precludes the enjoyment and sexual satisfaction that women are supposed to feel."
In fact, one woman interviewed for the study told the researchers the following: "Some penis may be large yet my vagina is small, when he tries to insert it inside, it hurts so much that I will have to look for another man who has a smaller one [penis] and can do it in a way I can enjoy."
The study revealed 6.2% of the 545 females had affairs during the six-month study.
Additional contributing factors included domestic violence, being denied sex or denied preferred sexual position, being under age of 25 and a lack of sexual satisfaction.
The study focused specifically on female infidelity because of the prevalent spread of HIV among women in the region.
The study is published this month in PLOSOne.
