The true average penis length, and other surprising facts about sex

Aaron Carroll usually hosts a video show at Healthcare Triage, but this week, Dr. Carroll teamed up with our friends at Mental Floss to bring you some surprising things you might not have known about sex.

Among the tidbits: Yes, it's a myth that penis size and shoe size are in any way related. It's also a myth that the average man's penis is seven inches long — and Dr. Carroll has 15 studies to back it up. The studies found that average penis length was closer to five inches. Another disappointing fact Dr. Carroll cites is that contrary to popular belief, sex isn't great exercise.

The nature of this video probably makes it NSFW, but it's worth a look at some point, if only for your own amusement. --Meghan DeMaria
