I think there is lots of bravado here. I'm gonna be honest about my weaknesses - I'm just interested in honest feedback, it would be a little cheap to trash me gratuitously. So, confessions: 1. I've noticed 70% of the time my cock does not reach full 'bursting' turgor. This reduces its length by about 0,5-1,0 inches. This gets much better when I'm relaxed, for example with a girlfriend I love and when I'm really comfortable. 2. I hardly ever do spurting ejaculations anymore :-(. Oh shit - depressing. Trying to do Kegels, but not much help. 3. I'm quite emotionally sensitive and have had encounters where I don't feel that excited and it shows with a really poor erection. 4. I had a one night stand a year ago and did not get an erection at all for the first 10 minutes. I just didn't 'connect' with my feelings despite her vigorous hand and mouth work. Felt bad about this. 5. I really don't know whether 9 inch penises are 1 in a 100 or 1 in 10^6 of the male population. But I think and hope it's rare. Also, OK news: 1. I'm feeling a bit better 'cos my latest described it as massive. I'm not stupid though and realise that girls will be sweet and say this out of wanting to please/ be kind. 2. I have measured my penis at just over 8 inches (when very horny) within the last 2 months; although it does seem to vary with my degree of excitement and this represent a maximum rather than an every time figure (this is probably an effortless & everytime 7.5-7.75 and a 50% time 8 inches). I am being strict as hell with these measurements - really really technical (could easily bullshit it higher). 3. There does seem to be a track record of very positive comments/ surprise from girls. So a DAMN real bit of honesty. I've got pics to back up what I say (unlike some more confident 10 inchers here I've noticed). I'm gonna work on a comparison with say a Coke can or ruler for proof of what I'm saying. Perhaps we should all be 'vetted' by no photoshopping, no wide-angle, clear size photos. Now there's a thought! Still, I do think 8 inches is good, though probably relatively common (what do you reckon 1:30, 1:50?). If I'm feeling more insecure then 1:5? I'm struggling with this 9, 10 or more inch thing. But I don't see men's erections, 'cos I date girls. Jus' lookin' for a bit of clarity/ honesty. Anyway, I've gotta respect this site - I'm very impressed with the maturity of some of the comments to previous posts, but wonder whether there are just a few deluded/ flamer types around as well. You gotta get a little suspicious at 9+inches eh? Respect to all. BTW would appreciate thoughts on my crap ejaculatory distance (p'raps jus' aging 'cos I'm nearly 40).
