No, its not true. I have had a boyfriend before that had little feet, and had a big penis.

It doesnt really matter anyways. You dont date a guy for the size of his feet!

I have never heard of a guy getting nervous and then getting and erection. It must be another myth. But I could be wrong, I'm not a guy...

If you look at other posts on the boards and from my own personal experience, nervousness often results in loss of erection.

We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.

What is true is that many teenage guys find themselves getting erections at unexpected and sometimes very inappropriate moments, not necessarily when they want to be sexual.

I've actually found when I get really frustrated while doing something physical (like kyaking, I just can't kyak for the life of me) when I finally pause for a moment it occurs to me that I'll have a raging hard on. Without noticing it up until that point.

I dont know about the myth but the shoe/penis thing is true for me. Just one to add to the roster.

Hehe this is kinda funny- I haven't found the penis/shoe thing to be true, but I've discovered something else...

Please don't think that this is true... this is just based on my own experience... I've found that the guys with long faces have large penises. Not necessarily a big head, but a long one. Haha just thought it was funny.

About the big feet/big penis thing... Well I brought the same topic up a long time ago here and the general consensus was that it was a myth and had nothing to do with anything. I'm very skeptical though.

The same people who tell you that penis size has nothing to do with shoe size will often also tell you that your height has nothing to do with your shoe size either. However, I know for a fact, that on average, taller people have bigger feet. In PE at school, we would often line up according to various things, e.g. by our name, by height, by shoe size, etc. When we lined up by shoe size, you could clearly see that the people with the biggest feet were also among the tallest. You might as well have lined everyone up by height, it was almost a perfect correlation.

Since shoe size corresponds to body size, I'm pretty sure that other parts of anatomy do as well. Just by casual observation, it's pretty obvious that (as always, I mean on average...) a tall guy has longer arms than a short guy.

I actually asked my biology teacher about this, and at first he gave the standard canned response "it's a myth, penis size doesn't matter anyways, etc." When I explained my reasoning, he said it made sense, and I was probably correct.

Furthermore, I worked up the courage to ask my doctor. She told me that while, of course, there are exceptions, generally bigger guys have more down there.

you know what they say about guys who have big feet?

they wear big shoes!

This is what my boyfriend (size 12) says.

As for nervousness, actually, when men get nervous, they are more apt to go flaccid. Here's why. There are two parts to your autonomic (involuntary) nervous system: sympathetic and parasympathetic.

The sympathetic nervous system is in charge of fight or flight functions. For example, your heart will beat faster, your eyes will dilate and more glucose will be put into your cells from your blood.

The parasympathetic nervous system is in charge of rest and digest functions. In this case, your stomach will work harder to digest food, excess fuel will be converted to fat and glycogen, and your heart will slow down.

Erections are controlled by the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest). When a person get nervous, their sympathetic nevous system kicks in, and they lose the erection.

I know that's a lot to take at once, so if i went over anyone's head, ask questions and I'll try to explain more clearly.

about that feet lenght thing... we did it in math class when we were working on stats. yes its true that taller people have longer feet in general. but still, it was considered a medium rate. and there is a logical reason for people taller to have taller feet, cause if their feet were very very small, they'd have trouble standing up (i'm not meaning they couldn't).

when it comes to penis size, i don't know cause we haven't tried (of course ), but i doubt it is the exact same. it may sound logical that taller guys ghave a bigger penis, but there is no "biological" reason. and do taller girls have bigger breast? or labia?

while talking about myth, i heard a new one today. (i think it is very weird). according to that myth, girls with smaller breast and hairy hairy arms are "better", more "performant" when it comes to having sex...

Feet and skeletons are made of flesh and bone. Penises are just flesh, despite being sometimes referred to as 'boners'. Tall people aren't necessarily fat people, nor do tall women necessarily have bigger breasts than short women. You're sort of comparing apples and stiffies here, Jeffrey.

Why scream and cry when you know it's true?
Why fall in love when there's better things to do?

I work in the field of sexual entertainment for adults (yeah, that would be pornography) and I have seen many, many penises (in person and on video/Internet) and I cannot find any kind of correlation between penis size and any other factor (including height, size of feet, ethnicity, etc....).

As for nerves, in my experience it plays a role in the difficulty of having and erection and maintaining an erection.
