So, wait, if Neandertal women had an additional rH factor... does that mean the majority of the Neandertal+another hominid were all male N  + female X  blends?

Well, while they were a little shorter than Sapiens, Neanderthals were much more solidly built.  If you're looking to get stretched out and pounded for a couple hours, a Neanderthal would be a better choice than some weedy Sapiens.

There is that, I suppose.  Bonus, they were likely redheads.

Bear in mind, this may have been before beer goggles were invented.

Sorry to break your heart, but penis size is necessarily correlated with birth canal size which is correlated with baby's head size at birth - Homo Sapiens males have the largest penises of living primates and likely of extinct primates also.

Size is not everything; the comment may have had more to do with stamina/muscle power.
Plus, given what we know about the rough sizes of newborns of both variants of homind... the difference is in the adult variants, not the wee baby ones.

This is literally a conversation I never thought I would have to consider.
