I am not the type of guy that ever goes out bragging about his size, or finding excuses to tell his guy/girl friends about how big I am. A lot of my guy friends do, and I think that it is an insecurity thing, and even if its a lie or not, I think it makes them look stupid. But here is the thing, as I said I am not very vocal about my size, but my girlfriend is, she is a fiend and (its great in the bedroom) loves to talk me up to her girlfriends (and I do admit it turns me on to know that she is telling her friends about how big I am). The problem is that she doesn't always know the right times to keep her mouth shut, and has blabbed about how big I am in some situations that were kinda awkward for me. But some of them were exciting and I admit I have played some of those situations in my head over a few times. Here is what I have noticed, when I am around a group of friends where the size of my penis has not come up yet, or is still a mystery, once they find out about how I am larger than average, people start treating me differently. Sometimes I have noticed that the result is more respect coming in my direction, from girls and from guys. The girls will look at me differently, and start making innuendos whenever I mention something about my girlfriend, and my guy friends start treating me like I am "meat" in porkys, almost flaunting me or showing me off as "hey this is my buddy, the guy with the big cock" rather than "hey this is my buddy, he is a great guy". Once I had a different reaction, there was a girl I liked, and one of my guy friends told her about my size, one night at a party, I was talking to her friend and the topic of me hooking up with her friend came up, and she said, "sorry dude, she is afraid to do anything with you, cuz of how big you are" When friends of mine find out about my size, they look at me differently, some times its in a flattering way, but sometimes not. Attention is nice sometimes, but when what you are getting attention for becomes your distinguishing characteristic, it can make you feel like thats all you have to give. When my friends find out about my size, I think its safe to say that I notice I get more respect, but why? I don't have control over how big my penis is, I was born with what I was born with. Giving someone respect for an accomplishment, or for wearing a championship ring, or for being a good person is something I understand, but for the size of your penis? The size of your penis is not something earned, it is not something that makes you great, the size of your penis is earned or achieved with about as much skill as winning on a slot machine. I understand that larger penis's may feel better to women, (my girlfriend can testify) so I would expect that when it comes to choosing a good fuck, girls would pick a bigger guy over a smaller guy, but where does respect fall into the equation, why does a guy having a big cock qualify him for such a prestigious level of legendary respect, I just don't understand, maybe I am being naive.
