The Autoblow Balls Beauty Contest fielded more than 1,000 entries from 35 countries giving an anonymous PhD statistician enough data to work with.
Whereas the Vulva Paper’s analysis of the Vagina Contest’s data found clear vulva style preferences that held true across most of the world, the Balls Paper found the voting public gave nearly all scrotums low and similar scores, regardless of scrotal appearance. Sloan says he still intends on keeping his end of the bargain, awarding $10,000 of prize money and having the top three rated scrotums 3D scanned and turned into items of home décor, though questioning their marketability.
The statistician hired to evaluate the data found there were six distinct scrotal styles based on how empty or full the scrotum appeared, the ratio of its width and height, and how similar the testicles were to one another. Unexpected facts emerged during the data analysis including: Hungarians rating their own countries scrotums five times higher than other country’s scrotums; “intense” Taiwanese participation and scrotums were rated higher on weekends and lower on Mondays.
The three winners, two Americans and one Australian with unusually large scrotums, ranked significantly higher than their competitors, averaging approximately six out of 10 stars compared with all entrants who averaged only 3.4 out 10.
Brian Sloan said, “I am saddened that the data showed no statistically significant preferred class of scrotum. Given the scrotum’s important biological function of holding and protecting the life-giving testicles, I figured the public saw beauty in it, but never discussed it, preferring perhaps to talk about the penis instead. Now I know why the scrotum has always lived in the shadows: because people think it’s ugly.”
Sloan will be receiving the 3D scans of the winner’s scrotums over the next month, and will then begin production of a set of scrotum-themed book-ends and paperweights.
