As men, we’re very aware that we fit into either two categories when it comes to our manhood. We’re either a ‘grower’ or a ‘shower’.
For those unsure of what we’re talking about, the terms are used to describe the state of a penis before and after an erection. Being a ‘grower’ signifies a man whose penis varies greatly in length between being the erect and flaccid states, while men whose size remains relatively similar in length, no matter how toey, are defined as ‘showers’.
But how common is it to be a ‘grower’? Surprisingly a new report says that ‘growers’ are in the minority, by a long way, with only 26 per cent of men fitting the definition.
The new study, published in the International Journal of Impotence Research, analysed the erectile habits of 274 different penises (peni?) and broke down the stats. Using a penile duplex Doppler ultrasound (PDDU), the data was gathered over a 2 year study of patients with erectile dysfunction. The accompanying discoveries were interesting to say the least.
