    I've been curious if people see a large penis head as a virility signal the way that many see producing large amounts of semen as a signal of virility.

    Sex At Dawn theorizes that men are turned on by signals of sperm competition. They use the sight of other men's sperm as an example (presence of cumshots in porn, multiple male cumshots on women, bukkake, popularity of large cumshots in porn). I'm curious as to whether this goes for the size of the glans as well (bigger glans means more suction, more semen displacement, more sperm competition).

    :confused: Well I don't have a mushroom head at all and still i shoot monster cumshots, so for me there's no relation between the two.

    Your pole is really binary -- many items you have listed are those that I am indifferent to.

    In the future it might be a better bet to use the same questions, but just use a 7-point scale for agreement and have people reply that way.

    i.e. "A large volume of semen is attractive to me"

    Disagree 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Agree
    (I would be a 4, not a 1 or 7 as the poll would have forced upon me)

    Likert Scale is always the way to go :)

    Err . . . Paige, it's a POLL, not a pole. (But I see you used the right form later, so I'm guessing the first one was accidental).

    With grammar freak stuff out of the way, I like Likert scales too, but I don't think this site offers them (or does it?).

    Like you, I'm pretty indifferent. Cum is cum, and penis heads are penis heads. As long as there's a head and cum, I don't care what they look like.

    I've seen this a few times over the years. Is it not bullshit? It seems pretty ridiculous to me. :confused:

    It's been pointed out already, but I just want to reemphasize the Freudian Slip.

    I consider a mushroom penis an unattractive one..to me a very powerful and virile penis has a massive shaft that dwarfs the glans (see Shane Diesel)... just a personal point of view!

    I know I didn't phrase my comments or the poll as well as I could have. I didn't necessarily have all the ideas fully formed. But let me see if I can clarify my thoughts by responding to comments.

    I'm definitely not saying there's a relationship between a mushroom head and the size of someone's cumshots. What I am speculating is that there is a relationship between the appeal of seeing a huge head and seeing a huge cumshot. And my belief was that the responses would differ significantly by gender.

    You may have a point but for what interests me I think a binary choice might be appropriate. Perhaps I could have phrased it as "particularly turned on". Indifferent is not turned on. A 4 is not "particularly turned on", you would be a "not turned on". Anyone else with this thought, if you're not a 6 or a 7 you're probably "not turned on".

    I don't think there's a way to do likert scales, and again, I'm not sure they would improve things, at least for what I wanted to see. The results are pretty much what I expected, though sample size is obviously a problem for the women's results.

    Indeed, once again, what I would expect from many, though not all, women. This site definitely presents evidence that men are turned on by signs of virility (or perhaps signs of sperm competition), and want to improve their appearance of virility (or their ability to compete) despite the indifference of women. Look at how many threads there are to "increase your load". There are also a number of threads in the penis enlargement forum about increasing the size of your penis head.

    It certainly may be but there is evidence to support the hypothesis that historically humans have engaged in sexual practices where sperm competition frequently came into play and thus certain traits were selected for over time. Doesn't mean that other theories should be discounted, or that we should reduce every behavior to biology and evolution. I'm firmly against biological reductionism and favor the social sciences for behavioral explanations but I've been enjoying exploring these ideas recently.

    Problem is, 'not turned on' also suggests 'turned off', which is another thing altogether.

    For all the deepspot, backstop grinding lovers out there I ask this: Wouldn't a large mushroom head feel better functionally and thus look better aesthetically? Does one necessarily precede the other? Can something actually be a "meh" visually and at the same time mind blowing internally?

    (Disclaimer: I've always wanted to have a wide-cap mushroom head for that reason, sadly my head is so-so... see my pic)

    To be honest, I've never noticed a major difference between shapes.

    And I've always had a bit of a disconnect between what feels good and what looks good. Like big cocks. They feel better than small ones, but my preference is physical, not psychological or visual.

    That is definitely interesting. My mind works in a "form follows function" direction. If it feels good, if it works ergonomically, it ends up looking better no matter how ugly it looked prior to realizing the kinesthetic appeal.

    I'll always form an initial opinion when I first see something, but I have to touch it to actaully conclude whether or not I like how it looks.

    That is interesting too.

    You are NOT to put those hands of yours into my mind unless you intend to use them!
