This occured to me while reading the "research" thread. Many people are making claims of what is and isn't possible based on what they have seen. Sample size certainly makes a difference when you are developing your own context. Being a straight guy, I honestly haven't had much of an opportunity to see many erect penises in person. (I am not counting porn or flaccid / semi's I have seen in showers or at strip clubs.) If I am counting right, I have only been in the same room with 4 naked men with erections. The interesting thing is that I do think I managed to see a representative range. Three of these occurances were when I was younger and was having sex (or something close to it) with another couple in the same room. Two of these guys were probably around average - maybe five to six inches hard. The third guy was really small, I am guessing three or four inches (truly bizarre, as he was about 6'11"). The fourth guy I will admit was huge. I am friends with one of his former girlfriends. She told me that he was a legit 10 inches. The kick was she told me that he'd show it to me if I asked. To make a long story short, the next time we were partying at his place she and some of the other girls started making a lot of innuendos, which he latched right on to. Finally, my friend ask if he would show everyone his cock. He had no problem with this, took out a huge semi that quickly got harder as a couple of people in the room made comments. He was a little guy and this made it look even more impressive. ("Looking" is the operative word, as my friend had acutally broken up with him because sex really wasn't that much fun at his size.) I am going to guess that the range I have seen for a sample size of four is unusual. What I wondered is just how many erect cocks you have seen up close and personal and do "statistics" seem to bear out? Clearly it would seem orur gay friends and the ladies auxillary are going to be really helpful in answering a question like this.
