If you have ever wanted to predict your penis size, there’s now an app for that.
The Predicktor was designed by a family physician as a calculator that cross-references trends noted in scientific studies with personal information like your height and finger lengths (which somehow directly correlates with penis length).
“Inspired by patients of all ages who express penis-related insecurity, anxiety or dissatisfaction, the Predicktor was created to help men – and women – educate themselves on the subject and have fun doing it!” the app’s site proclaims.
According to The Huffington Post, the doctor, Chris Culligan, spoke with Raw Story about his app, noting that he created it for a laugh. However, he hopes that it will put an end to some myths about penis size and encourage discussions on sexual health that makes it fun, not awkward.
“I realized there’s a lot of literature out there,” Culligan told the site. “But when I was looking at the actual studies I was sort of surprised about a couple of things, one was that there were a lot of studies and two, that they didn’t actually agree with what most people thought.”
Culligan explains that the app predicts penis size when you include buttocks size, height, shoe size, finger length and sexual orientation. Apparently, studies show that the size of a man’s buttocks and the ratio of index finger to ring finger height are determined by Hox genes ,which play a role in penis size.
The Predicktor is available only for Android. Culligan is expanding beyond penis size calculators with more useful apps like a divorce predictor and a parenting app.
Quoting his father, Culligan said, “It’s not how long your pencil is, but how you write your name.”
