This is an era when many young men and women are choosing to hunt their life partner over the internet. There are plenty of such matrimonial websites available all around the globe. What do you think today a bride wants to know about her future husband, before she chooses her finally? Besides the grooms social profile they also take interest about his educational credentials, job and economic profile. In addition to this, now a days various health related information are sought of, particularly the sexually transmissible diseases like HIV. Interestingly, in future some more amazing criteria may looked for in the groom and the one we are talking about here is the grooms testicle size.
Confused? Well let me explain. Recently, evidences by anthropologists found that men with small sized testicles are more caring than men with big testes. May be a old saying holds true – all that is big might not be better. When these men with small testes were showed their children’s picture, fMRI scans of their brain (fMRI i.e. functional-MRI, a new type of MRI scan that looks into blood’s moving pattern in brain) revealed increased activity in certain regions in brain. Since, women mostly look for a husband who will be caring to her kids, it’s likely in future such a criteria may be sought of in a groom’s credential. The size measurement shouldn’t be a headache, a ultra sonographer can provide most details of its topography like weight, volume, size etc.
Finally, there is one issue in regard to this which might not comfort men. It’s yet to be proved if being a caring father decreases the testes size or smaller testes size makes a male a caring father. It’s still in stage of- egg or chicken, which came first?
Read an excerpt in this regard:
A link between the size of a father\’s testicles and how active he is in bringing up his children has been suggested by scientists.
Researchers at Emory University, US, said those with smaller testicles were more likely to be involved with nappy changing, feeding and bath time.
They also found differences in brain scans of fathers looking at images of their child, linked to testicle size.
