    ...or the story of why I began wearing boxer-briefs.

    For me it was I think the summer after 8th grade. I liked boxers but I was having some real "containment" issues so after some internal wrestling I finally decided to ask my mother if she'd ask my grandfather what brand of boxers he wore (when he was visiting he'd walk around and never seemed to have much of a problem). She said something along the lines of not everyone having the same requirements and that perhaps I should look into other types of underwear.

    I'd seen a fairly small amount of porn, absconded with various people's "Joy of Sex" books and generally gauged the tone of how other people talked about their dicks and was beginning to think I might be big but it hadn't really clicked until that moment.

    Anyone else able to pinpoint when they realized how they measured up?

    I realized mine was smaller than others in Junior High (age range 13-15) when my I saw my best friend, he was substantially larger...he knew he was packing a big one, it always worked into our convo's some how.

    oh well. :D

    I noticed in the showers at High School that most of the other guys dicks were a bit smaller than mine, but being soft didn't think anything of it & thought we were probably all around the same size when hard.

    It wasn't until I started getting sexually active that guys would tell me I had a nice cock & it was big. I had assumed, before, that I had a small one as the only cocks I'd seen were huge ones in porno's...

    Mind you after being on here compared to many it seems small again lol :tongue:

    I was so busy in my teens doing other things that I barely noticed my cock. When I got to college in my early 20s I had a few dates with a woman I considered to be much older than me (31) and she went on about how there was "a lot of you". I kind of got it.

    When an early girlfriend told me my cock was the widest she'd had. I felt incredibly proud and it helped my sexual confidence greatly.

    When I put on my first condom and realized I was only using half of it; so I took it off and unrolled it completely and thought "Man, there's guys with dicks this big!".

    Well I found out I was a lot smaller than guys soft when I was in high school gym. I wasn't thinking and shaved myself one summer before school started and well got to have a public shower for the first time with a hairless 2in cock and because of the workout my balls were pulled up against it. Not my proudest moment. Anyway even after all the hair grew back I knew I was kinda small. Especially with some of the seniors swinging the clubs they did. Well when I was a senior and saw a few lucky freshman swinging similar clubs and my little guy was still about 2in I had an idea that I was going to be on the small side.

    Hard I have no idea. I'm about 5in hard but from this site I'm getting that I'm on the small side when I thought I was average hard.

    It's easy to let this site skew your view of what's normal, someone else said it well that this is a self-selecting sample. On this forum I've seen both ends of the spectrum but the distribution of sizes between the extremes is all outta whack.

    Well, I don't remember that, but I do remember when I decided that what I had was completely ok, that it was working well, that I was getting satisfaction and plenty of action with what I had, and that I was not getting any complaints!
    I've never been sorry since that I was not bigger, longer, etc....I'm completely happy and satisfied with what I have...:yup:

    When each and every female partner told me the same over and over: wow, this is the biggest I've seen, etc. Like so many others, I too thought they always say that at first, but then I started looking up statistics on the internet and realized they were not lying.

    pretty much the same with me. i never thought i was big or even considered y size until women started telling me it was big. it makesme feel great and more confident because i never onidered myself as very appealing to women now its something i can look to as a source of pride and self validation

    The showers at school were when I knew I was bigger than most

    Then some mates and I had a measuring competition and it was confirmed

    I never thought I was big until women started commenting about it:

    "Look at you, you're huge"
    "You know, you're bigger limp than most guys are hard"
    "Oh my God, you're even bigger than your pictures"
    "Very nice, much bigger than my hubby's"

    quite a few women have said that I have a fat wang. I thought it was just empty flattery, but I measured once and I am about 2.25 inches wide, so it is fat after all lol....

    Because of the one or two boys who mature early, the communal showers at school leave a lot of late developers feeling insecure about penis size. I certainly thought I was under endowed compared to a couple of big boys in my year, but when I became sexually active a couple of years later condoms fitted ok and I didn't get any complaints from my girlfriends. But even though my erection was around 6" I still thought of it as small/medium. But it was still growing a little and by the time I was in my 20s a few of the women I slept with had said they thought it was one of the bigger cocks they'd encountered, so I felt better about it. But back in those days I understood that the average was thought to be about 6.5", and as mine was shorter than that I still felt 'small'. But within the last 5 years I've read about the more realistic figures thrown up by the Lifestyles Condoms Survey, etc. and I discovered that the average erection is more likely to be approximately 5.5" long, and as I'm now hitting 7" at full erection I've finally had to accept that I've got a fairly big penis.

    The first time i realised was when i measured my cock for the first time. I researched averages and saw that i was definitely on the larger side. Also seeing my friends cocks on vacation last year! I jerked off with one of my friends after a night out, and i was much bigger. :D

    I mis-heard the average length in sex when i was 14 and for a while thought average was 5-6 soft. I knew i was a little bigger, but i figured since i was above average height it all must have been proportional. I was concerned though cause all the sex ed diagrams of anatomy had the penis head usually sitting about 1/2-3/4 the way down testicles where they hung. Mine were the reverse. Balls hung half way down shaft. I was scared that maybe my balls were deformed cause we had started to learn about things that happen to people with weird chemical levels or birth defects. I asked what would cause ones testicles to only hang half way down penis in rather then more like the diagrams. I got scolded for asking silly questions and many laughed. The girl I sat with asked me later why I asked that question and I explained my self. She burst out laughing and couldnt stop. She corrected my measurements and told me there was no way I was soft 6 inches. I told her I was and that I was about 8 hard. (She laughed more). She made me show her about a week later at her house when I was over and She laughed that I was right. I got my first hand job from her and it hurt like fuck hehehe.

    I was a late bloomer, I remember my cock being 3 inches when I was 14, to being 8 inches when I was 17.
    I realized I was big when in school my group of friends were talking about this guy who 'apparantly had an 8 inch cock', but they all dismissed it as impossible, cus no one was that big. I felt too shy to point out I had an 8 inch cock so therefore it was possible.

    Junior high gym class-- we played games in gym shorts with our regular underwear underneath. I've never known what it was he saw (maybe a bulge, maybe just my dick bouncing up and down as I ran), but the gym teacher pulled me aside after class one day and told me to have my parents buy me a jockstrap. He said the other boys would need one eventually but I should wear one now. I asked my mom about it and she quickly turned this over to my dad, who took me to get one. He gave me the talk about some guys developing earlier, so I figured that was it. But I eventually realized I was just built big.

    I figured it out after a few months of crushing my girlfriends cervix. Her best friend told me it was big, too. They were both near virgin so they thought they were going to tear. I told them (believing I was average) that they had nothing to worry about. It was fairly brutal to lay something like that on tight 15 or 16 y/o's (don't worry, I was the same age).
