Hi, I've been lurking here for a while, so I thought it was about time to contribute a little bit. I was wondering whether anyone else have been as stupid/blissfully ignorant about the size of their penis as I have been. I'm guessing it's just me who's remarkably dense. Anyway, so a little bit about me. I'm not exceptionally large when I'm soft; maybe 4-5 inches which is a decent size I guess but not remarkable in any way. When I was 16 years old, I measured my erect penis to be about 16 cm which I had heard was about the average size so I stopped worrying about it. Later I got my first girlfriend who I'm still dating after 3 years and have only had sex with her and one random girl I met when I was 17. My girlfriend has never had sex with anyone else, so I guess she has no real idea about how big the average penis is. So anyway, after 2 years of dating I was bored and on summer vacation and I came across an article on the web describing how to measure your penis. Being bored, I gave it a try and my junior turned to be more than 9" long with a 7.5" girth. I just thought: "WTF?" So I measured again. And again. And again. Strangely, the numbers remained the same. I finally understood several things like 1) Why I have always had such a hard time and putting on condoms and 2) Why my girlfriend would sometimes bleed the first couple of months we had sex. As a sidenote, I have since become much more secure. Now, when I'm talking to someone who's being an asshole, I just smile and think "hey, punk, my dick is way bigger than yours B) " It's stupid, but it helps So that's my story.
