Are 'how big are your breasts?' and 'how big is your cock?' contextually the same question?

Are the normal answers given comparable? Why is a rather specific answer expected for the former, but not the latter?

Time for a little social mores research.

The latter doesn't require a specific answer? Oh. I didn't need to hunt for that ruler after all . . .
Seriously, I suspect it's partly a matter of how women tend to be more socially defined by their bodies. An appauling tendency, of course. Perhaps people also know men well enough to assume they'd lie about specific measurements anyhow . . .
