    How much does a guy's height affect the perception of his penis size?

    There's always mention of porn actors being really short, so making them look "bigger" when they're only "high-average" or "large".

    So, if there's a guy with a 7" penis, but he's 5'6 tall, how big would a guy who's 6'2 tall have to be to "look" the same size as the shorter guy?

    Or another way to look at it; will a 7" on the short guy look like an 7,5" , 8" or even 9" when compared with an average height man?

    It does matter a lot. In porn, it is not just the guys, but the girls as well who are small.

    And it is not just height - fatter men always seem to have a visually smaller penis. And that is not just because of the fat that might engulf the pubic area.

    So, basically, the volume.

    So on a short and well toned guy, 7" should look pretty big right?

    Well I`m 6`2 and weigh 185lbs and I sport a 7.5 by 5.75 inch dick which is by no means small, but on a guy with my frame it doesn`t look all that impressive until you get up close and personal with it right in your face. If I were 5`7 and weighed 150lbs or so however you can bet it would look a helluva lot more impressive both from afar and up close.

    Yeah, 7.5 by 5.75 is pretty massive in real world terms, but I suppose I see what you mean, with a guy your size I imagine the reaction would still be "wow thats big", but they would expect a decent size due to your frame - so its more proportionate to your size.

    Whereas for the 5"7 guy it would come as a massive surprise (i've got it in my head that girls expect shorter guys to be modest in penis size too).

    Do you find that girls presume you're going to be well equipped due to your height/frame?

    Well, from my own experiences the few women I have been with who did comment on my size after sex said that they did not know what I was packing until I took off my clothes when I asked them if they expected me to be big beforehand. They said it was a very nice surprise though, and know that I think about it one did comment that she thought I would be packing a big one due to my height, but that was the only time someone assumed I was big due to my height.

    So generally they don't seem to have any pre-concieved ideas on size. I guess it makes it an even better surprise for them then!

    Since I've lost over 60lbs. I have noticed an increase in size in comparison to the rest of my build.

    A buddy of mine is way over six feet, very thin, giant feet and hands. He says he has gotten picked up due to this perception (that he will be in proportion). Apparently our penises grow separate from our frames - very little relationship... but the perception is still out there.

    I like the comment about weight loss above. It really makes a difference in appearance. I let myself go. Must admit that driver to get back in shape was augmented by my "enlargement" after I lost twenties pounds to loss that next twenty - ha, ha. Now that all but really thin I look endowed again!

    I'm also 6'2 and about 185 lbs. and I'm Black, but I'm a little smaller than you, about 7 inches by 5.5 inches girth. Even though my girth is not necessarily huge, it's pretty decent which makes my dick appear more full and thick and not as long. I've never had any complaints, even had a few girls tell me it was big, but it would be nice to be a solid 8 x 6, as I'm pretty sure girls expect me to be bigger.

    Well I'm 5'4" 185lbs 8x6 and been at clubs just dancing with the ladies messing around talking shit back and forth, and had some outright say I couldn't handle them or say stuff like too bad your short. While I've also been with some older taller women that was just into me not caring about size and were rewarded upon pull out. "Ooh my Mr. 3(not posting Real names here people, lol) I didn't expect you to be sooo....."

    I had a cam session with a very short AND slim guy. He was like 165 cm. tall and his weight was only about 50-55 kg.....his cock looked quite big on a cam. When I eventually met him IRL his penis was just average, like 6 inches, I would have estimated it to be above 7 inches.

    So yes, I believe that proportions can cheat you, because such a small guys dick seems huge compared to his body, even if it is just a little above average ;)

    I myself had the same dick size when I was 13-14 yo as now. But I was much slimmer (65 kg, now my weight is 90 kg.) and for that reason my dick certainly LOOKED bigger than now. But it was just an optical illusion, because when I measure it, it is still 7,25 inches as it was then....

    It might, until I touch it. I know what size my hand is. Perceptions may change, but my hand seldom does.
