I was a late bloomer I guess. I always looked younger than my peers and I went through puberty quite late (15 or so) and also quite slowly (ie: not in one big spurt). I still look young for my age - I'm almost 40, but most people think I am in my early 30s. I also have the physique of a younger guy (little body fat/firm muscles). So I suppose it has its advantages! Anyway, I didn't realise I was at all well endowed until my 20s, by which time I was just under 8" X 5.6". I didn't have many gfs in my teens, and in any case, most teenage girls back in those more innocent days probably didn't see enough cocks to make a comparative study. And we certainly didn't have the internet. I started to realise I was pretty hung when a black girl I was friends with in my early 20s decided to sleep with me 'cos as she put it, she "could see I was packing a piece" (I'm a "shower" and a "grower"). Then, after we split up, I had a string of casual relationships, and almost all the girls made some sort of complimentary comment about my dick, and many even said it was the biggest they'd had. However, I just put this down to girls just saying that to make guys feel better (ie: I thought it was just something all girls said to all guys). I still didn't get it even when one girl I had a one night stand with (another black girl) said that she would blow me, but not fuck me, 'cos she was a bit worried it wouldn't fit. Nor did I catch on when one casual girlfriend nicknamed me "Godzilla". Again, I just thought she was "saying" that. I didn't even twig when I couldn't get condoms on, or they went on, but would only go about halfway down, and even then, they usually broke. I suppose I eventually started to realise in my late 20s when I recorded me and a girlfriend having sex and when we watched it back, I thought "Mmmmm. That looks pretty impressive actually!" Then, a while later, another female friend saw the vid (she found it in my video stack and rather cheekily put it on when I was in another room) and she just came right out and said that she wanted to sleep with me after seeing "that thing of yours". After that, I felt the world was my oyster, and I started to take women's comments more seriously. My present girlfriend and I haven't slept together yet, 'cos although we met over here, she had to go back to her own country for a while. However, she has seen some pics, and she is very impressed (in fact, she mentions it almost every time we speak), and when she comes back here soon, I imagine we're going to have a LOT of fun together. Well, there's my story - I'd be interested to hear your experiences.
