The Swiss study has given the final word on what women look for in a penis Anyone familiar with the male member will be aware of the ongoing discussion over what makes the best one. But now science has given us the answer to the question 'what makes a good-looking penis' - and you may be surprised.

Far from the constant worrying about size, it turns out that women rank that particular issue fairly low down their checklist.

This includes looking 'normal' - including no bumps, bends or growths. Next was pubic hair appearance, followed by a joint third place for quality of penis skin and girth. Fifth in the study was shape of the glans or the head of the penis.

The study was performed by showing the women pictures of 20 penises and asking them to rate how they feel about them. It was carried out to ascertain whether men with surgically-corrected hypospadias - irregular placing of the urethra - were more or less likely to have attractive penises.
