penis size and genes?

I was wondering if the penis size can only be inherited from a father? Or can you inherit the genes from your mother (like the size of her penis if she was born a male)?

I thought of this randomly in class today and was interested. Thanks.

I'm currently in genetics at school. I'll see if I can secure a grant to study this after I graduate.

OP, hopefully your future wife has big penis genes, or else your future son is going to be a pencil dick just like dad.

In humans, the Y chromosome spans 58 million base pairs (the building blocks of DNA) and represents approximately 0.38% of the total DNA in a human cell. The human Y chromosome contains 86[5] genes, which code for only 23 distinct proteins. Traits that are inherited via the Y chromosome are called holandric traits.

Re: penis size and genes?

Clearly you have no understanding of biology. Really the only thing that Y chromosome (the one inherited only from the father) does is put the fetal gonads on the track to developing into testes, and then the released testosterone starts other male-making processes. Like practically everything else, penis size is probably influenced by interactions of many genes from both parents, as well as environmental factors.

If your question starts out "is there a gene for...?" the answer is probably no. Genetics is way more complicated that this retarded 1:1 gene-character ratio that everyone imagines.

Re: penis size and genes?

How many people do you think have a good idea of the size of their father's and grandfathers' erect penises?

Doesn't actually matter in context of his question.
