    So I've seen some people really estimate some penis sizes wrong, in both ways (big or small). I've seen people guess a penis that was about 6 inches to be 4" and other people guess it to be 8". Do you think it has to do with the person's height alter the person's perception of what penis size is?

    I ask because I'm 6'1 with 6-6.5" penis. When I look at my penis in relation to my body, I see average. I'm sure at the same scale though with some guy who's like 5'6, it would be considered "small" because on his body, his penis (still to scale to mine) would be more like 5". This same guy with my same exact penis would probably look big though and people would guess like 7". I know this because I've envisioned how I'd look with a smaller body but the same cock. I'm sure this could be proven on photoshop too. Also I can imagine a very tell guy with a 7" penis being disregarded as "average" because it doesn't look as impressive on his large frame.

    But yeah, anyway, I think that if a guy looks at a picture/video of a another guy with a different body/penis ratio than him, he will consdier him "big" or "small" due to how it compares to his own body/penis ratio. Would you agree?

    I'm the same as you. I'm 6'1" but I view my 8 inches as looking like an average 6 incher in comparrison to my body. It doesn't even touch my belly button, it's just barely under it. .-. 8 inches on a 5'6" person would touch or even surpass their belly button, no doubt.

    I was once even told by someone that I looked like I had 7 inches. That was annoying. -.-

    Also, as we all know, thinner people look more hung than fat people. Especially from afar. Logic says that would still hold true in the tall and short relations.

    Yeah see, I saw your pic and instantly knew you weren't bullshitting by saying you were 8".

    But yeah, a guy who is, say, 5'9 with an 8" penis might look at yours, realize it doesn't go past your belly button (unlike his) and because of this (whether he realizes or not) compare yours relative to his, which would be "maybe 7 inches" :rolleyes:

    I've had the same thing with me before, except it was "no more than 5 inches!":rolleyes::rolleyes: That one annoyed me. Then again, it was by some stupid bitch who didn't like me (internet is srs business). I feel I just have a well-definied size guestimator because of how concerned I was(/am) about mine, anyway. I feel kinda small being my size for 6'1. Well, when I'm 100% erect I don't think it looks too bad, but when I'm not that hard then it kinda does. I just turned 20 so I don't think my penis will grow anymore, but if it could, I'd wish it would grow to like 7".

    Also yeah, I remember some girl in high school saying this:
    "My ex boyfriend used to be able to touch his belly button with his thingy"

    Actually, now that I bring this up, let me tell you why she even said it. heh.


    I had this class and in this class was the HOTTEST girl in the school. Seriously. Like, undisputably hot...she looked like Christina Aguillera. She was the typical "perfect" blonde. Okay, so I'm not totally into those girls for different reasons, but basically yeah she was one of those girls and the hottest in the school. Okay I'm done overemphasizing this. We sat near each other in class and we started talking finally. She started talking to me because back then I was pretty shy and didn't make the first move, ESPECIALLY with a girl like her. After a bit of talking one-on-one, we all started talking as a group and penis size got brought up for whatever reason. Hot girl said that you can tell what a guy's penis size is by how long his hand is between the bottom of his palm and the tip of his middle finger. I have really big fucking hands. She giggled and said I had a big one. I just smiled and looked the other way. This is all bullshit of course, since I'm barely over 6"...LOL. She didn't have to know, though. Of course, the other girls competitvely started talking about their past "big" experiences, because girls are just like that. One of them said that stupid line in the beginning of this post.

    It annoys me how much status a big penis can bring. This is just because I'm jelous though. Also because I'm bitter in an extremely ungreatful way; I feel I was very lucky with the whole genetics thing with almost everything except penis size. Because of everythign else, I feel that girls might expect me to be bigger than I am and that terrifies me. I wish my penis would magically grow an inch longer and a half inch girthier, then I wouldn't care.

    I suggest you get into Jelqing. It hasn't done much for me, but I'm never able to commit to doing it as often as one should to yeild results. If you have self-descipline (something I lack :p) then you should be able to see some sort of result. It seems people have an easier time increasing their flaccid rather than their erect, so it may be good for you. I've had small increases in flaccid, but not from just jelqing.

    And yea, that hand thing is bull. My hand is 9 inches from palm to middle finger and about 9.5 from the "L" position of thumb to index fingertip (my thumb bends back a lot in that position). So yea, utter bull.. cuz I'm surely not 9.5". D=

    Hmm. You're still really god-damn big though, lol. So maybe it does hold some truth.


    But about jelqing, I've read about it but it kinda just seems like bullshit to me. Plus I'm scared shitless that I might do some damage.

    I know it won't change anything for you, but I just wanted to let you know, that your dick looks awesome.

    btw, I'm also 6'1 with a 7.5-8 dick and also think it looks pretty average. and just to let you know, the palm-middlefinger thing is completely right in my case :biggrin1:

    The testicles and girth also help determine people's perception of how long a dick is.

    Another major factor is how the viewer feels about the person or the body. If it is a full body pic and the guy is extremely handsome, people will guess a llittle longer than that same viewer will guess if that same dick is on a guy that doesn't turn the viewer on.

    Broad shoulders, big small, very small waist, gorgous ass all make what ever dick the guy has more attractive.

    I don't get anythnig from looking at dick pics. But if I can see more of the body...it can be arousing.

    Lemac, I suspect that you are the victim of a confusion. As I have said in another thread, everything depends on whether you are talking about estimating dick size in photos or in the flesh. Yes, if two guys are much different in bodily size but identical in dick size, the guy with the bigger body will probably appear to have the smaller dick when both guys are viewed in photographs. But in the flesh, I really doubt that there will be any such disparity, unless maybe the viewer is looking at the subject from a distance (say, through binoculars).

    Most of us do not show our erect penises outside of intimate situations, and someone in the same bedroom with you who looks at your dick is not going to gauge its size against the overall size of your body; more likely against the size of his or her hand or other nearby body parts. If he or she -- I'll just assume "she" for grammatical simplicity, since you don't state a sexual preference; please pardon the assumption if it is wrong -- has not had her perceptions distorted by watching a lot of porno movies or by a statistically anomalous incidence of big dicks in her sexual history, she will surely see that yours is on the big side. Think about it: if you are standing a few feet away from a guy and looking at his privates, do you glance up and down from them to see how they compare with the size of the rest of his body in order to judge whether he is hung or not?

    Even in photographs, there are many other factors than the comparison between the size of the dick and the size of the body that can influence perceptions of size. You have two photographs in your gallery that are taken from the same angle, yet, to me at least, you look much bigger in "c0" than in "c111." I am not sure why that is -- probably some accident of the angle at which you are holding your dick -- but there it is.

    If your concern is with how big your dick looks in photographs, then you should start experimenting with different camera angles, focal distances, and so on, to see what makes you look big in photographs. If your concern is with how big your dick looks in real life, in intimate situations, I think that it has nothing to do with its proportion to the size of your body.

    Lemac, your dick looks super fine, and you should be happy with it instead of being disappointed that it won't magically gain half an inch in girth and an inch in length. Be happy with what you have, not only because it is what you have, but because you do have a nice cock.

    Nice because the length, while not ginormous, is not short either. And it isn't thin, and once you have sufficient length (which you do) for attractiveness and performance, girth is very important for pleasure, and you've got girth. Speaking from experience, grabbing a thin dick in my hand was always a disappointment in my younger, wild oats days, because my own dick feels substantial. I suspect many women would say the same thing, that if given a choice between a 6.5x5.25 and a thin, straw-like 7-incher, the 6.5 wins the day.

    In many places, depending on schedule
    Height and body structure play a big role in creating the perspective someone else has when looking another body.
    Then pictures and videos seem to sometimes add and sometimes substract "mass", maybe depending on various variables like light, resolution etc.
    What is completely obvious and true about above posts is that if you take two exactly matched penises compaing it^but in a large and a small body, the smaller body will look as if having the bigger penis, just optical ilussions.

    I'm 6'5'' with an 8'' cock. Because of my height and broad build, it looks average to me in the mirror when I'm naked.
    My boyfriend on the other hand gets excited when he sees it hanging down my leg through my clothes, especially when I go commando :tongue:

    kind of the same as when you click on pics here who say 9 inches and look 5 1/2 max. everything is compared to what is around it. It may be 9 inches if the dude was 7'4" but around 4-6 in the pictures. Depends on how long the thighs and torso are too. dats the way eyes work.

    I'm kind of short, 5' 4" to be exact. But I'm 7" long. I know 7" isn't real huge but on someone my height it would probably look about average or mabey a little above that. Ofcourse I would most likely be misjudged for my size simply because of my height. And that stupid hand measurement thing is a load of crap. I'm only 6" from palm to finger tip.

    7" is definitely in the "big zone", and I could imagine it looking pretty big on your body. Don't be so modest!
