It's eternal. We men (in general) are obsessed with the sizes of penises. But it's not without reason. Culture We have phrases like "well endowed" or "well hung" that refer to men with big penises. This insinuates the opposite - that a man whose penis is not large is "poorly endowed" or "poorly hung". It doesn't help to have pop songs with women singing "Don't want no short dick man... Itty bitty, teeny weeny, shriveled little short dick man". How many threads have there been on this bbs where a guy has posted a pic of his obviously-larger-than-average penis and women have responded with "I don't like it. That's too big." Go ahead, link one to me. Instinct Historically, the bigger guys (not referring to penis) are the alphas. Girls have always flocked to bigger, muscular guys and always will. As men, our instincts tell that another man who is bigger has a better chance of winning a fight... of getting the girl... ...of getting more work done... of being more popular. Disregarding penises for a second, bigger is better for men. Women do not prefer a shorter, skinny man. Those guys always lose the girls to the big guys. This mindset bleeds into penis size: "His bigger hight, bigger muscles, and bigger penis are more desirable than mine." Nature When a man has sex, the physical pleasure a man feels is enhanced by pressing his dick into a tight vagnia. For us, tighter feels better. It feels more pleasurable. We can get this tightness in two ways: having sex with a small pussy, and/or having a big dick. Now, we try to tell ourselves, "It's not the same for women. It's not necessarily the tightness that they get off on. Sometimes it's the clit, sometimes any size will do." ..etc. But as we continute to tell ourselves this, this statement contradicts the nature and instinct that we have grown up feeling. We're telling ourselves this thing about women that we feel different to and have a difficult time relating to. Truth The fact is, size does matter... to some women. Some women like longer ones. Some don't. Some like thicker ones. Some don't. Some want both. Some don't care. Some prefer clitoral stimulation. Some get off on something else completely. But overall, it seems that women, if given the choice, would choose a larger one. That's what we want. We want women to choose our penis over some other guy's. And we know that, if we have a big one, we'll have the penis of preference. So... Yeah. We obsess. We have reasons to. Are they fucked up reasons? Probably. But they're there. One of the wonderful things about this bbs is that it presents a forum for men and women to discuss these things openly. Thank you to all the women here who provide honest and candid input!
