From leaky lady parts to a 132-pound scrotum, The Doctors take on the most taboo topics about your private parts!

Does Size Really Matter?
Is bigger really better, or is petite neat? The Doctors discuss America’s obsession with private part size. A recent international study showed that the average size of the male penis is 5.6 inches long when erect; however, many men still worry how they measure up. The obsession with size has extended to social media, where apps that allow you to preview a larger breast size or predict a suitor’s penis size are becoming increasingly popular.

A new app called “The Predictor” claims to be able to predict a man’s penis size based on personal stats such as height, shoe size and age. The app cross-references the information submitted with trends from scientific studies to make its prediction. Whether or not the prediction proves accurate, it could surely be app-licable to your next date!
