Penis blindness: one third of London men too fat to see their own genitals

Burly, beer-gutted brawn; the male’s rotund answer to female voluptuousness, perhaps? Yet it seems that many of London’s men have taken this waistline liberty to its limit, causing, well, an unfortunate obstruction. Penis blindness, when a man’s belly ‘frustrates’ the view of his genitals, is becoming a ‘trend’ among London’s men. According to a survey reported by the Evening Standard, almost a third of men living in the Greater London area can no longer see their penis when standing up. Of course, such a statistic is made even more worrying when you consider that a man who can’t see his penis due to obesity is five times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, three times more likely to develop cancer of the colon and more than two and a half times more likely to develop high blood pressure. This is according WeLoveOurHealth.co.uk, who are launching a campaign called the ‘Big Check’ encouraging men to monitor their waistline by asking, ‘Can you see your manhood?’. They hope that the straightforwardness of this question in relation to the social delicacy of the issue will be a more likely catalyst of a healthier lifestyle, than a barrage of esoteric figures and statistics. Eyes down everyone. Matthew Bremner
