    The question may sound at least strange for a member of this board but lemme tell you:

    we all seem to watch porn flicks, obviously all the guys and girls involved have anatomy that allows them to be pornstars and that's fine but the problem arises when we, well I, compare to what I see.
    I am pretty aware that if we all had such dimensions we had the potential to be pornstars - even though size is not the only discriminating factor to act in a porn movie - what I wonder is what, to the eyes of a woman who is supposed not to be that hungry about porn like we men are, normal means, what does she find being normal, both size, duration, skills...

    when I had sex last time with my girlfriend we watched ourselves through the webcam and watching the flick later on I had to admit myself that finally I am not that small as I feel like when watching pro porn flicks.

    I believe I really fall in the average category but am still very conscious about size, skills etcetera.

    she, my girlfriend, never complained even though she said she had bigger ones before, on the other hand she is pretty happy with it all since besides size, that to her opinion seems not to be that important if not just like an eye candy, there are other things involved like emotions and chemistry and that's fine but, should there be say an occasional date where chemistry and emotions are way off, what then it happens, does size play major role or what?

    thanks

    Well speaking from personal experience i have never had sex with someone within the first 2 months of dating BUT if i let my date get down and dirty with me then his size isnt all that important BUT obviously if his penis was really skinny then i'd have to devise a way to make things more exciting eg:clitoral stimulation,doggy style with my legs closed to grip him inside of me/spoons for the same reason.

    Speaking from my job pov,well i have seen all different sizes,shapes and hues but i'd say the average size would be approx 6 inches which is apparently the average size anyway.If the guys penis was too small for pleasure then i'd do the same as above.

    Wiki the word normal. Since we’re discussing a measurement, we could be saying what is the normal distribution. Based on charts we could claim at least 5” and no more than 7” would be normal, almost all men fall within the range. We could say the norm should be closer to a statistical average, such as mean, median, or mode: 5 ¾ to 6 ¼ meets that standard.

    Normal can mean healthy or conforming to convention. Discussing length we might say that if a guy’s pecker is big enough to thrust and hit the right spots but not so big as to make penetration difficult or so long he has to be careful, than he is normal.

    Seems to me somewhere below 5” thrusting might get limited and beyond 8” might get complicated. Much thinner than 5” or much thicker than 6” also could make a difference, so in those rangs, and by that standard, a guy might be normal.

    If a woman likes it different, more – but less if that’s what she likes – I wouldn’t think she is abnormal as a person for liking it, but she is looking for something beyond the norm.

    Since this is LPSG, we should consider the perspective. Large members are supposed to be larger than the norm. Large is what the members consider large; it being above the norm. Maybe 7 x 6 might be a prevailing standard.

    If that were what members think, a guy with 6 7/8 might be statistically large and should be very pleased with himself – more than welcome around here [I hope] – but not one of LPSG’s celebrated large guys.

    That’s my 2 cents.

    I think you are misusing the word normal or not clarifying your use.

    A normal penis?
    One that works and is not diseased.

    Normal size?
    Since there is a large variation in size there is no one normal size but a normal range.

    Guess there is abnormally small and abnormally large.
    Abnormally thick and abnormally thin.

    Statistics on this topic are all over the place.
    Search LPSG forums.

    98% are probably "normal"
    And you probably are too.

    I am talking about size, not about normal working one, a working one has nothing to share with size, right?

    I mean, in my case, I watch porn once in a while and, of course, comparing what I have with what I see, even though I know that's not the real world, I feel a bit disappointed; then I saw myself in a video my girlfriend and I shoot for fun and have to say that, maybe because the point of view, but it didn't look that small even though, once again, I think I fall in the "average" category.

    I know there are lot of tricks to make them to look bigger in movies, not too tall guys, thin ones, small girls, wide angle-close distance camera view etc etc without to mention that now they use drugs to keep hard erections and they make for sure them look bigger, this all given for granted and given also for granted that (most of the) women don't watch as much porn as we men do, do women have a different perception of what a normal size is vs what a man thinks it is?

    If your 7 inches you wanna be 8. If your 8 you wanna be 9. So why bother I know the feeling I wanna bigger to. But its not worth the stress so it would be best just move on and forget about it.

    Looking at porn to determine normal penis size is like looking at NBA players to figure out what normal height is.
