Ever wondered whether the man you’re looking at is good in bed?
Of course you have! Don’t worry, we all have at one point or another.
Well, now we can actually use science to help us out.
According to a new study, scientists have discovered a new way of telling how long a man will last in bed – just by looking at his hands.
Now that you’re looking at your partner’s hands (or potential partner’s) here’s what you need to look for.
According to the study, if a man’s ring fingers are the same size or shorter than his index fingers, he will last longer in bed.
Here is where the ring finger and index finger are located on a human hand:
Men with longer ring fingers are more likely to put on a disappointingly short performance.
How did the researchers come to this conclusion?
It’s all to do with testosterone.
Dr. David Goldmeier at Imperial College London said that the more testosterone a baby boy comes into contact in the womb, the longer his ring finger will be compared to his index finger.
Goldmeier explained that larger levels of testosterone exposure could harm brain receptors that control ejaculation.
Other studies have found that premature ejaculation is mostly thanks to genetic factors.
Also, other studies have shown that men with longer ring fingers tend to have larger penises and are generally more successful athletes.
Interestingly, how much testosterone you were exposed in the womb also determines how muscular your face will look. This goes for both men and women.
Furthermore, in a Turkish study, scientists tested 65 men who suffered from premature ejaculation and compared them with men who didn’t. They concluded:
“Foetal hormone exposure may be a new risk factor for lifelong premature ejaculation.”
If a man suffers from premature ejaculation, he usually can only last less than a minute, whereas those who don’t suffer from premature ejaculation typically last between 5 and 7 minutes.
All of this prowess talk being a moot point if he has a unique personality other people secretly admire. Agree?
