Penis size matters to athletes in the locker room, as they idolize teammates who have bigger penises, says a new study.

Dr Christopher Morriss-Roberts, a senior lecturer at the University of Brighton said that if a teammate's member is considered too large, it arouses suspicion from others over whether it could actually be used sexually, the Independent reported.

The study revealed that all of the men were inclined to look at other penises in the changing room in order to compare one teammate's size with another and well-endowed teammates were likely to become key team-building members of the group.

Roberts said that the knowledge about who has a large cock and who didn't within a homosocial environment helped individual sporting males climb up a social hierarchy of importance.

While, men who had smaller penises had to work harder to climb up the team social hierarchy, particularly if they were overweight.

Roberts added that a large penis is now an essential component of hegemonic masculinity, and should be considered a new tenet of masculine capital, taking into account the significance it has on social hierarchy in the sporting environment.
