Background and Objective: The constant phi number (1.618.) is accepted as the indicator of esthetic beauty and harmony in numerous fields of natural sciences and is also known to be effective in various biological systems in the human body such as skeletal system and facial anatomy, respiratory system, and cardiovascular system. In this study, we aimed to compare the anthropometric proportions obtained from penile measurements and the phi-value and to investigate whether this number could be an indicator of fertility.
