An examination of Rushton's theory of differences in penis length and circumference and r-K life history theory in 113 populations

  title={An examination of Rushton's theory of differences in penis length and circumference and r-K life history theory in 113 populations},
  author={Richard John Lynn},
Rushton’s (1985, 2000) r-K life history theory that Mongoloids are the most K evolved, Caucasoids somewhat less K evolved, and Negroids the least K evolved is examined and extended in an analysis of data for erect penis length and circumference in three new data sets. These new data extend Rushton’s theory by presenting disaggregated data for penis size for European and North African/South Asian Caucasoids; for East Asian and Southeast Asian Mongoloids; for Inuit and Amerindians and Mestizos…

Life History and Race Differences in Puberty Length : A Test of Differential-K Theory.

Life history (LH) theory is a mid-level evolutionary account of differences in evolved reproductive strategies (Wilson, 1975). LH theory categorizes species along a continuum ranging from fast (r) to

Low intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction: a study in an Indian population.

In this double-blind, placebo-controlled study, LI-ESWT demonstrated a positive long term clinical effect with improvement in erectile function of Indian men with vasculogenic ED who were prior responders to PDE5i therapy.



The relationships among height, penile length, and foot size

To determine whether "folk myths" regarding the relationships of penile size to body height and foot size have any basis in fact, 63 normally virilized men were studied. Height and stretched penile
