While they found that torso shape was by far the most important determinant of attractiveness, penis size has about as much influence on attractiveness as height.

Brian Mautzan evolutionary biologist at the University of Ottawa in Canada, generated computer images of naked male figures, varying them to represent the normal range of height, hip-to-shoulder ratio and penis size. He then projected life-sized versions onto a wall and asked young women to rate how sexually attractive they found each one.
