There is a common joke/insinuation that those with a small penis are likely to buy either larger or more expensive vehicles to 'compensate' for their small penis.

Have any studies demonstrated such a correlation actually occurring?

    I am surprised that this apparently has not been asked before. – Seth Mar 20 '17 at 21:08

    If a source for the claim is required to show notability, you could use this (although this claim might be acceptable without source, as it is rather well known). – tim Mar 20 '17 at 21:43

    tim, yeah, no need for a source. – Sklivvz Mar 20 '17 at 23:16

    any studies demonstrated such a correlation. I am curious how do you expect this study to be conducted? A lab in university post an ad: "Looking for people to participate in a study. You need to earn more than 200k per year and have a car which costs at least 120k. Be ready to prove both statements and we will also measure the size of your penis. By the way, we will give you 20$ for participation". – Salvador Dali Mar 21 '17 at 3:31

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because jokes are off-topic ... this isn't a claim to be taken literally. If I interpret or explain the joke to find a literal claim, I assume its saying "penis size" is used as a proxy for "sexual attractiveness" or even "sexual enjoyment" which can includes e.g. wealth, confidence, etc. – ChrisW Mar 22 '17 at 12:48
