dfh1959: Iâve been visiting this site for several weeks now and I thought it was time to join the forum. The truth is I feel that looking and not participating is a bit unfair to those of you bold enough to share your thoughts, feelings, and stats with the rest of us. I have never participated in an online forum of any kind before but this one intrigued me. I learned about www.lpsg.org through a conversation I overheard on the subway about a month ago. I had no idea that such forums existed. Iâve since checked out several of the other similar sites (measurection.com, thundersplace.org) but prefer the postings on this one. Besides, those others are mostly concerned with enlargement and PE is not something that interests me. Iâm satisfied with what Iâve got and wouldnât want to risk any damage. Before becoming a member I looked at a lot of the stats regarding size to see whether or not I belong here. Like many men I was concerned about my size and had measured repeatedly as a teenager. I was competitive and ego driven and wanted to be sure that I measured up. The alleged average in my days as a teenager (the 70âs Iâm afraid) was six and one half inches. Being 100% heterosexual, and a bit conservative, I have never seen another erect penis in person. Porn movies showed a wide variation in size and certainly there were quite a few that seemed bigger than mine. My only source for any real comparison (pre-Internet days) was my girlfriendsâ comments, a potential minefield for the male ego. I always wanted to know their opinions of my favorite body part but felt they would think I was a bit of an ass for asking, so I never did. Nevertheless, I did get feedback from most of them. So what did they have to say? Even after all the years I can still remember important details such as these. My high school girlfriend was a virgin and offered no opinion but seemed satisfied. The next partner was a lot of fun; nineteen years old, about 5â2â tall, and extremely beautiful (lucky me). By her own account she had been with eight other guys. After several encounters she told me I had a big cock. This made me very happy to hear. Whether or not it was true I didnât really know. My next partner was a librarian. She told me one night in bed that she had come across a study that had been done regarding penis size. She said she wanted to measure me because I was the biggest she had had (yeah!! and she wanted to know how big I was. Had I ever measured myself, she asked? No, I lied. She got a ruler and told me I was 7 Â½ inches (non-bone pressed). I was 21 years old at the time and very fit. Next came my ex-wife of eighteen years. She had plenty to say. When we met she was twenty and had been with five other men. The first three had been smaller than me (good news), the fourth was quite small, about 4 inches she estimated (poor guy), but her last and most serious boyfriend had been a lot bigger (ouch!!!. I still cringe at the memory. But she reassured me that I was big enough for her. It didnât really help but the sex was good and I soon stopped worrying about it. I figured that I was maybe a bit bigger than average and would just have to live with it. There are worse things in life. Right? Many years and one divorce later I met my current partner (I am a very lucky man). She is not one to talk about sex at all but several months into the relationship she took me in her hands and said, âThat is a very big penisâ, following which I did several cartwheels around the bedroom. Was she serious? I donât know. But she does tend to push back on my hips if I get too deep, and sheâs 5â8â tall. Admittedly, that makes me feel pretty good. And now we have the Internet and I can peer into the intimate details of other menâs lives. Now I can read all the online surveys to see how I measure up. Are they accurate? That question is evidently open to endless debate. Regardless, the truth must be somewhere in the middle of all the numbers. So what are my numbers? BPEL = 7.75 â 8.0 inches; EG = 5.4 inches; erect width = 1.9 inches. Sorry, no pictures yet, I donât have a web cam nor a digital camera. Why am I telling you all this? Because I am still as competitive and ego driven as ever, at least when it comes to penis size; because after reading every penis size survey I could find and measuring myself again for the first time in 25 years I feel great about what I have been given; because I want to brag and this seems like the place to do it. Do I have a right to brag? Do I belong on a forum like LPSG? Are you still reading this after several pages? You tell me. But please be gentle, itâs my first time.
