Hello, all. I've been browsing about for some time now and I think it's time I started into these conversations. Considering I'm about to join academia in the interest of studying gender-specific issues and contraception, I have a lot to say around these parts. Before I start commenting, though -- the story of my own large penis: I am 28, and a little bit shy of an 8x6. I did not know about my size until I was 24. Having never showered publicly, I never had means for comparison growing up. And pornography was no help, because everyone is big. I saw Mark Wahlberg's prosthetic in Boogie Nights and thought "it's pretty big, I guess." The first time I had sex, at 18, the girl came almost immediately, and within a minute, withdrew me because of the pain. Sex with her was miserable even though I was madly in love. I just figured sex was overrated. I didn't touch another woman sexually for five years after getting the dumping of a lifetime. It was a brutally lonely time. The next girl I was with turned out to have a chronic STD that always required a condom. By then, I had figured out that I was at least above average, thanks to a Maxim article that pointed out that if you can't slide your erection into a toilet paper tube, you needed Magnums. But Magnums still put the squeeze on, and I was never able to maintain erection to have sex. The relationship caved quickly and painfully for us both. By the time of my third relationship, I was very psychologically hurt (for a variety of reasons in addition to the sexual rotten luck) and thanks to this and tight-fitting condoms, I had developed a brutal case of ED. She quickly lost interest. I finally went to a doctor, just like any guy who only sees a doctor when it has something to do with his genitals. He checked me out, said there was nothing physically wrong with me -- I was just depressed. I went into psychotherapy to address the many issues that had developed over my life, and shortly thereafter finally met a woman who was both patient and loving, who recognized immediately that putting a Magnum on me was an unusual amount of work. She did some research, and found TheyFit. I got fitted, and they changed my life. My penis started working more often than not, and I found out I actually enjoyed sex (this is at the age of 24). But we were not physically compatible. She was in pain a lot from my size and came to be afraid of me. I was with her for three and a half years before a mutual breakup. She is now dating a man of average size, and interestingly enough, enjoys the sex a lot more because, as she says, she can go longer and a lot more often. My own sexual life is just really beginning at the age of 28, and it is very exciting to be out there meeting women as a sexually and emotionally confident adult for the first time in my life. I have a lot to say about issues of size, human psychology, and the culture of sexuality. Thanks for listening. That's my story in brief. You'll see me around.
