My understanding is that your penis size depends largely on testosterone levels of your mother during gestation...

Absolute size yes. But as you become overweight your stomach fat ends up taking skin away from your dick. You only have so much weight to lose, so this isn't a magic trick to give you infinity inches. However, if you are more than a little overweight could gain some length and girth by losing weight. It will also raise your testosterone level, which may have other benefits sexually and otherwise.

It's still mostly genetic. If she's extremely deficient it could affect the growth, but a woman with high levels isn't going to produce a son with a Mandingo dong if his genetic lineage dictates average size.

Wonder if they are counting all the trans people who sliced up their penii, feel like a lot of people are self editing these days.
Joke aside, the article mentions human bodies throwing out mixed signals these days, which feeds into something
Sadly, this has been happening for a while.
I highly recommend everyone watch this documentary:



This stuff is serious and effects us all in various ways. Take my life as an example of the possible dangers- I was exposed to chemicals in the womb that caused me to be born with sexual differentiation...including a couple of genital abnormalities and gender dysphoria.
I’ve had a theory for a while that a rise in the number of trans people could potentially linked to chemicals that humans weren’t producing and using 100 years ago, whether it be something in food, drink, medicine, or other. Looks like I might not have been far off.

On the flip side of this, this seems like it’s going to be a much more widespread problem in countries like America that have shit food and drink regulation, and a much bigger problem of processed food. Compare that to, say, a Mediterranean country that has a culture of fresh fruit and vegetables grown locally, and you cut down on the direct intake of these things.

PETA are going to be pissed when we go back to more natural products like leather because the plastics are killing us.

You were spot on!

Sadly, Alex Jones wasn't just talking crazy with his "turning the frogs gay" thing. We are slowly being poisoned by all the stuff we've surrounded ourselves with in modern life. I just hope we don't end up in a "Children of Men" real-life global disaster.

Was gonna make a joke about Beijing's pollution and a certain demographic stereotype used in many comedies, but with what's been going on lately, don't think it's the time for that :messenger_downcast_sweat:

Most developed countries have low birth rates. If you want to complain - complain about underdeveloped countries.

Thats my problem with sending food to some underdeveloped countries. They tell you "We are starving" but they make more and more babies so the starving problem will only increase.

I disagree; penises are shrinking because of their proximity to screeching radical feminazis. It's hard to get a raging mongrel with them around and right now they seem to be everywhere

Penis expert here and proud of it ( joking ) its human evolution. women preferred bigger penis that is why we have the biggest among primates. Some sizes differ but it's due to genes.

GAF average is 12 inches? If I times mine by 3 then perhaps so!!!!

However next time I disappoint a lady in the bedroom I can blame global warming, that will be a new excuse.

I think microplastics are a big problem in this regard. They can seriously mess up body chemistry, and they are everywhere since almost all products (including food) use some kind of plastic packaging. I think a worthwhile goal would be to completely phase out the use of plastic in modern society: replace plastic bags with bags made of paper or cloth, plastic packaging with packaging made of paper or cardboard, glass instead of plastic bottles, and consumer electronics made of metal and/or wood (as they used to be) instead of plastic. This would also alleviate the problem with all that waste industrial society is dumping into the oceans, since things like wood, metal or paper aren‘t as harmful (and usually decay over time).

This would be an environmental campaign I could get behind, and much more productive than all the kvetching about climate change. Also, imagine if the PS6 or XYZBox was made of wood and metal, like early TVs or radios. How cool would that be?

It's true. The average penis size of GAF members is down to 12 inches.

Erin Brockovich: Plummeting sperm counts, shrinking penises: toxic chemicals threaten humanity


The chemicals to blame for our reproductive crisis are found everywhere and in everything

The end of humankind? It may be coming sooner than we think, thanks to hormone-disrupting chemicals that are decimating fertility at an alarming rate around the globe. A new book called Countdown, by Shanna Swan, an environmental and reproductive epidemiologist at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, finds that sperm counts have dropped almost 60% since 1973. Following the trajectory we are on, Swan’s research suggests sperm counts could reach zero by 2045. Zero. Let that sink in. That would mean no babies. No reproduction. No more humans. Forgive me for asking: why isn’t the UN calling an emergency meeting on this right now?

The chemicals to blame for this crisis are found in everything from plastic containers and food wrapping, to waterproof clothes and fragrances in cleaning products, to soaps and shampoos, to electronics and carpeting. Some of them, called PFAS, are known as “forever chemicals”, because they don’t breakdown in the environment or the human body. They just accumulate and accumulate – doing more and more damage, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day. Now, it seems, humanity is reaching a breaking point.

Swan’s book is staggering in its findings. “In some parts of the world, the average twentysomething woman today is less fertile than her grandmother was at 35,” Swan writes. In addition to that, Swan finds that, on average, a man today will have half of the sperm his grandfather had. “The current state of reproductive affairs can’t continue much longer without threatening human survival,” writes Swan, adding: “It’s a global existential crisis.” That’s not hyperbole. That’s just science.

As if this wasn’t terrifying enough, Swan’s research finds that these chemicals aren’t just dramatically reducing semen quality, they are also shrinking penis size and volume of the testes. This is nothing short of a full-scale emergency for humanity.

Swan’s book echoes previous research, which has found that PFAS harms sperm production, disrupts the male hormone and is correlated to a “reduction of semen quality, testicular volume and penile length”. These chemicals are literally confusing our bodies, making them send mix messages and go haywire.

Given everything we know about these chemicals, why isn’t more being done? Right now, there is a paltry patchwork of inadequate legislation responding to this threat. Laws and regulations vary from country to country, region to region, and, in the United States, state to state. The European Union, for example, has restricted several phthalates in toys and sets limits on phthalates considered “reprotoxic” – meaning they harm the human reproductive capacities – in food production.

In the United States, a scientific study found phthalate exposure “widespread” in infants, and that the chemicals were found in the urine of babies who came into contact with baby shampoos, lotions and powders. Still, aggressive regulation is lacking, not least because of lobbying by chemical industry giants.

In the state of Washington, lawmakers managed to pass the Pollution Prevention for Our Future Act, which “directs state agencies to address classes of chemicals and moves away from a chemical by chemical approach, which has historically resulted in companies switching to equally bad or worse substitutes. The first chemical classes to be addressed in products include phthalates, PFAS, PCBs, alkyphenol ethoxylate and bisphenol compounds, and organohalogen flame retardants.” The state has taken important steps to address the extent of chemical pollution, but by and large, the United States, like many other countries, is fighting a losing battle because of weak, inadequate legislation.

In the United States today, for example, you can’t eat the deer meat caught in in Oscoda, Michigan, as the health department there issued a “do not eat” advisory for deer caught near the former air force base because of staggeringly high PFOS levels in the muscle of one deer.

And, just the other week, hundreds of residents who live near Luke air force base in Arizona were advised not to drink their water, when tests detected high levels of toxic chemicals. Scientists have found these substances in the blood of nearly all the people they tested in the US. No country or region on earth is untouched by PFAS contamination. It is a global problem. PFAS has been found in every corner of the globe. It is virtually present in the bodies of every human. It’s found in fish deep in the sea, and birds flying high in the sky.

And it’s killing us, literally, by harming and attacking the very source of life: our reproductive capacities. The rapid death and decline of sperm must be addressed, and it must be addressed now. There simply is no time to lose.

Don't worry lads...

Once all our sperm and eggs disappear and our cocks shrivel away into nothingness...

Science had already lit the torch to light the way towards the continued survival of our species...:

Scientists create model of an early human embryo from skin cells​

For first time, fibroblast-derived model of early embryo will allow extensive study into causes of very early miscarrriage and effects of toxins and drugs on early development

In a discovery that will revolutionize research into the causes of early miscarriage, infertility and the study of early human development - an international team of scientists led by Monash University in Melbourne, Australia has generated a model of a human embryo from skin cells.

We will just have to settle for a continued existence entirely devoid of the pleasures and allures of f***ing...
