Yup -- this would be why (in those areas of the world without heated, indoor plumbing) koro is more common during the winter, and the first symptoms often occur while bathing or peeing.

If you became suddenly wealthy enough to eat alot, wouldn't your penis 'disappear' behind your fattier gut, or your nipples 'disappear' in the sag of your now fattier breasts?

Is there any relationship between koro and the actual relative size of ones penis or nipples to others in your culture? Do owners of hypertrophic versions fear loss more?

Nipples do not recede with weight gain - they may actually become larger, although the nipple/breast area becomes less sensitive.
