Hello; long time listener, first time caller here. Figured I'd say hi, explain my vaguely interesting tale of size perception (which includes enlargement!) For starters I should just say I'm not very big (currently 5.5"x5.25") but am currently satisfied with myself. I would like to point out, because I'm really picky about these things, that that is measured accurately along the top of the penis from the pubo-penile junction (not from the pelvic bone or any sort of nonsense like that). Anyway, back when I was a freshman in high school I was roughly 4" and (I dunno how it came up, but it did) I admitted to a friend of mine (who claimed to be 8", who knows how accurate that was) that I was rather ashamed of my small penis. Fortunately for me, he was the bigger man (ha! A pun) and said it wasn't worth worrying about, yadda yadda yadda, it was all cool, etc, when he could've just as easily made fun of me and made my entire high school career a living hell. Through high school I got a little more growth, but not much, and was somewhere in the vicinity of 4.5" in length and 5" in girth by the time I started college. This combined with some general confusion about my sexual orientation meant I was far too afraid to even consider seeking getting laid, but I guess that's not important to this story... The summer between my freshman and sophomore years in college, I found Matters Of Size. Now, I had seen penis enlargement before and had considered it, but being somewhat intelligent I knew that all this nonsense with pills and patches was a load of bullcrap and not worth wasting money on. However, the system of natural exercises seemed at least somewhat promising, so I sank $50 in a half-birthday present for myself and started the program. Much to my surprise, over the course of the next two months I gained an inch and a quarter in length and a quarter inch in girth (I kept careful track in an excel spreadsheet on a day-to-day basis). However, after two months my progress plateaued and I gave up on it soon after. Roughly a quarter inch of my gains disappeared, leaving me with my current size of 5.5x5.25. In any case, though pleased with my progress, I still wasn't particularly satisfied overall. I later found erectionphotos.com which brought about a shift in my entire perception of penis size (I reccomend you all browse through it). It shattered the myth in my head of the 6" average, showing me that at 5.5x5.25 I was actually above average (albeit not by a particularly large amount, but still, nice boost to the 'ol self-esteem there). Later on still, I spent some wonderful time with a close friend of mine who was definitely on the small side of the spectrum and I found myself completely satisfied with his smaller penis, which basically erased whatever shame I had left with myself. So, yeah, through that rambling mess I hope you can pull out the winding journey of a person who went from complete shame and unsurety in regards to his penis to someone who has, through a combination of many factors, found peace and satisfaction. Feel good story of the year, I hope you'll agree. In any case, those are the auspices under which I join your forum. I hope you'll have me, and I hope to learn more.
