Tom Holland likes post claiming ‘short men have more sex’ after discussing height difference with Zendaya

Tom Holland has liked an Instagram post claiming that “short men have more sex”.

The Spider-Man actor, who is 173cm tall, is currently dating his Marvel co-star Zendaya, who is 179cm tall.

Earlier this week, as per The Sun, Holland liked a photo on Instagram apparently alluding to the height difference.

The post, shared by LADBible, was captioned: “According to The Journal of Sexual Medicine, shorter men are more sexually active than taller men – who would have thought ay?

“A study of 531 heterosexual men found coital frequency was higher among men with a height of less than 175cm – which is just under 5’9.”

The caption was accompanied by a photograph of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito from their 1998 film Twins.

The couple recently spoke about their two-inch height difference during an appearance at a SiriusXM Town Hall event promoting the recently released Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Holland said the idea that a height disparity might cause problems within their relationship was “a stupid assumption”.

Speaking about the casting of Zendaya as his love interest in the comic-book adaptation, the 25-year-old said: “Every girl we tested for both roles was taller than me.

“There was no one that tested that was shorter than I was. To be fair, I am quite short.”

Earlier this month, Zendaya shared a heartfelt tribute to Holland with an Instagram post commemorating the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home.
