horsehungdick: Hey all... I've been reading through this site for a month or so now and haven't said a whole lot; lots of repeat topics, and I'm sure it gets annoying, but here's something I'm curious about that didn't seem to get addressed... it's purely subjective, of course no empirical evidence to support it either way, but I'd like to hear your opinions. It think it's pretty safe to say that guys that vist this site have at least a passing preoccupation with their dicks. So in polling this audience... How do you think your penis size has changed or influenced the way you address or care for the rest of your body? The question can be taken in a number of different directions --either if you have a small penis, did you try and compensate for it by trying to improve the rest of your features? or if you're well-endowed, did you perhaps fixate on that and never ponder the rest? Or did you not view your physical anatomy so wholistically, the individual factors never influencing each other? (Which may have been the case, because unlike breast size in women, for most of us the world will never know, so maybe you didn't let it affect your outward appearence. )(Yeah, I know it's a totally open ended.) Really the question deals not so much with our cocks, as everything else that might have derived influence from them... Speaking from personally, I guess I realized I had a significantly above average dick when I hit puberty, more or less. With the realization that I could be a sex object, and a pretty decent one, I guess I was interested in really maximizing my resources. I found myself in no way attractive, and honestly can really only name this in retrospect as my only distinctive feature. I don't know if it's as simple to say that my dick "inspired" me to pay more attention to the rest of my body --but as a kid I was an utter nerd; hopeless; braces, retainers, glasses, 20-30 lbs underweight till I was 14-15, short, nondescript, you name it-- and looking back on it I really have to question what actually gave me the initiative or indeed confidence to try and "fix" everything I thought made me ugly. (My family never gave much thought to appearances; so it seems a question more of nature than nuture...) But suddenly when I was maybe 14, with no history of sports in my background or interest in physical activity, I started going to the gym 4-5 times a week to lift wieghts. I cared about what I wore, how I looked, got contacts, etc. I still go to the gym daily and am always trying to dress well, look good, etc. Oddly enough, my mental image of myself is still (and I think probably forever will be) the only somewhat attractive 14 year old. But nowadays, (I'm 20 years old) when I think "my arms could use more definition" or "my nose is too big" or something silly like that (I say silly because consciously I know I'm being unforgivably superficial, and short changing my personality, but subconsciously I still have the insecurity), more often than not the train of thought ends with, "well at least my cock is really hot." --Which leads me to think that may have been a significantly influencing factor in my childhood or a self-esteem booster. Okay, so I'm sure I sound like a shallow vain prick now, but it is something that's crossed my mind alot. And at least since I'm only a keyboard to all of you and will never have to face your verdict as to hot or not, I feel a little more secure posing the topic. Anyway, if you have thoughts about yourselves personally, I have interest in hearing them.
