    I wasn't sure whether I should post photos of it or not...but if it helps I'll go ahead.

    Anyhow, I'm 6ft2, 170 athletic build and naturally thin...by am now athletic build due to working out for past 2 years.

    I do nude photos, and the other day, someone for the 1st time told me that my penis in the photos looked really thin and that it didn't look good. I sorta been thinking the same myself, but when someone else told me it really made me think again.

    I mess with other guys, and many of them have had wider cocks than I do...but its not that Im 'small', as Im about 8" but its skinny. Most people I come across seem happy with it, but on the photos I think it does me no justice. But even up close, my penis is thinner on average than most guys.

    Can anyone help me figure out what I can do about it...if anything? Will I eventually grow out of it one day? I know some people dont like fat ones, but I could use a bit of girth here...

    Do not post nude photos of yourself in the general forums.

    As far as the thickness of your cock? You're 23, I can only imagine that you're kind of stuck with what you have. Pills/creams that allegedly make your junk bigger, doesn't really work. Pumping only lasts for a little while (as in one sexual session) and can eventually lead to damage.

    Don't know what to tell ya.

    Well, in the meantime I have zoomed in on photos of it to make it look a bit bigger...as the ones the other guy was referring to was showing it in comparison to my whole body. I mean 8" versus 74 inches will make anything look small LOL.

    I just dont understand why it hasn't gotten my girth in the 1st place....

    All dicks are shaped and sized differently. I'm sure if it were the other way around and your cock was incredibly thick and someone complained, you would want it thinner.

    If you're proud of it, the way it looks shouldn't bother you either way.

    If you don't like the way it looks in a photo, they have this magical thing called photoshop

    What is it, are you and your buddies in a dick comparison club, or professional models? Unless you are you making a living off of pictures of your dick, what difference could it make? Being 8" long might add to the illusion of thinness, as 8" is pretty fucking long anyway. Do your lovers complain?

    As long as no chicks are pointing and laughing when you are with them and you are happy with it, then who cares? Trust me, most chicks do not compare one guy's dick to the next. I know for me, it is more of a package deal (personality, how they treat me, looks, etc.). If you don't like how it looks in pics, then stop taking pics. If you "false advertise" and happen to meet someone you sent the pic to, there is no way to fake that.

    LOL...well I haven't gotten any complaints from anyone. Except the occasional 'its too big'...but I have gotten some comments about the circumference. I mean, its not freakishly thin, and I met a guy who literally had the exact same length and width of my cock and I was surprised that he appeared 'big' to me.

    But like I said, I do notice other guys with a thicker cock...but not necessarily longer. I dont know...I think some (gay) guys just make statements just to make themselves feel better.

    But also, dicks aren't really photogenic. I imet a guy who seemed to have a thin penis on his photos...but I was completed surprised when I met him as it was much thicker and long.

    My penis reached maximum length and girth around age 15, so I don't think age 23 is going to make a difference. As far as girth goes, I saw some stats from a recent durex survey, and while length varied quite a lot, girth was much less variable. 97% in the range 4.75 to 5.25, which was a strange looking bell-curve.

    Those who are noticeably girthy, say 6" or more, are extremely rare by these stats. Even porn stars often aren't that thick, and camera tricks are used to make them appear bigger than they are (wide angle lenses close up and that sort of thing).

    Hello,

    I find it so strange when you guys talk about having to be proud of your penises.

    I'm a woman and I'm not proud of my vagina. It's a part of my body, it's the effect of my parents and ancestors genetics.

    I'm proud of my professional achievements, of things I've really had a saying on, fruits of hard, very hard work. Hours of practicing. If it's about my body, I'm proud of sport achievements (running, etc). If it's about sex, I'm proud of knowing how to please my partner in bed.

    He, on the other hand, like you guys, is proud of the size of his penis. But he surely can't be proud of satisfying me.

    Why do you feel you've gotta be proud of something you obviously don't control (if you did, you'd make it thicker).

    Should I be proud of my vagina? Start staring at it on a mirror, going like: "oh, the labia are pink", "oh, how beautiful a clit I've got", "wow, eight centimeters deep! Wow!"

    I can tell you your not missing out on anything. :)


    across diameter plays a key role in how thick it looks also
    I will use my as a example. since its the perfect example of a optical illusion.


    the diameter of my is 2.4" mid (About the diameter of a US dollar bill.)
    a round penis is 2.0 mid


    but my still has the same circumference as the 2.0" diameter
    it *may* look bigger but in reality they are both the same size
    even if the Circle Circumference of the diameter (2.4)= 7.5" appearance


    the thing I am mostly worry about is she may play "your not sticking that in me card" one of the reasons I do not have a sex life.


    Not really interested in porn because my penis is camera shy


    unless I can break that camera shyness it's not going to happen.

    Well said.
    That should be the first response every guy sees when he comes here asking if his dick is big enough, or posting one of those "Girls, How Do You Like This!!!??" threads.

    No matter how much sensibility we force down their throats, they never get it. Lots of guys do get it, but they aren't the ones posting about their dicks. I realized it didn't matter after I met the woman I eventually married and realized she really got off on sex, even though I had a regular dick. Of course I had heard otherwise from all of my clueless friends up until then.

    LOL, okay unfortunently I didn't quite get the mathmetical standpoint of that.

    I think another thing that gets me is the fact that as a Black guy, we are pressured into having people believe that we all have long, thick penises and that anything that isn't is undesirable. I find it annoying on some levels because I've actually had guys grab at my flacid penis and walk away as if it wasn't big enough...but if they were actually worth me undressing and getting it up for them, they wouldn't be so quick to. (and for the record, next one who does it is getting popped in the face) I've never had any of my FB's say, "sorry but its just not big enough, take it out". I've even had guys say, "you must have like a 10" cock..."

    But again, like pyr said...there's no reason to be proud of something you cant control (or did you mean there's no reason to NOT be proud???).

    Circumference


    it tells you how to Calculate the circumference of the diameter



    condom diameter is different since they measure them "flat"
    so a 2" diameter
    2 x diameter = girth
    so the answer is 4" girth

    Ah okay...once I find my tape measurer then I'll be sure to reference to that.

    Can anyone volunteer to check out a photo of my penis to find out whether it looks thin or not? Im not trying to be funny...but I need to know if maybe that is prevented me from getting more gigs. If its just not photogenic, then Im going to stop doing nude photos.

    When you are about to have sex for the first time with a girl who's obviously had sex with other men before you, and she looks at you hard for the first time and tells you that it's huge and she can't wait, it does feel special. After, when she's laying back and looking dreamy, and tells you that she's been wonderfully filled and stretched, that feels special too. Or with my wife, who's sexually voracious, admits straight up her sexual appetite is fuelled by size, or my girth. It just feels too good for her.

    Orsometimes just before intercourse, you look down on yourself and you see how huge it really is. Very impressive.

    It's not something that many women can understand, unless they've had the one in a hundred as a lover and he knew how to use it, and it's not something that a lot of men can understand either, but it is very special if you have it.

    I get your point. Still, I don't understand it (the pride), but you talk about it also, at your last paragraph (when you say women don't understand: you're right).

    I was trying to drawn a parallel, though. I love to give head. I really enjoy it. And no man has ever complained. On the contrary. They all said I was the best, and other things sexual partners tell each other, that shouldn't be taken too seriously.

    So, before involving in sexual games (giving head, etc), I'll stare at my mouth in the mirror and be very proud of it, stare at my tongue. Wow!

    No, not really.

    But I understand men are different. I don't mean to offend. It's a good thing we're so different.
