    I've been told a few times that I have a "pretty penis", so I'm wondering what attributes constitute a good-looking penis? Is it biological? Is it social, such as with the myth-making and idolizing in the media of certain penises? A combination of the two? And if so, how much? This is an aesthetic question really, so I'm not expecting to find only one answer.

    I guess to answer my own question first, I'd have to say a combination of the two. If all emotion is material, then there must be some designed process that takes place once the eyes are stimulated by sense data. I look at a penis, I have an emotion, and that emotion is either positive, negative, or any combination therein. The question is why those reactions happened in that way at that particular time.

    I think a lot of it has to do with memory and reinforcement. During our formative years, we are exposed to media images of certain penises and not others. For example, look sometime at the pictures of sex ed books and you'll probably find a straight, smooth, fairly long and thick-looking penis (and un/circumcised depending on the detail and cultural source of the image). These observations are logged as memories and reinforced with neural connections. We then access these memories, which then almost simultaneously inspire in us a chemical emotion, when we see a similar penis. We log what we've learned a penis should look like, and then compare with what is in front of us. I believe for many people the Image of the penis from these books and other media sources (porn), which is constantly referenced and used as catalogue whenever we use words to describe them, serves as a symbolic and also Platonic form. We aspire to find the images in our head of the "perfect" penis so that we may be satisfied and have good feelings. Conversely, when we see a penis with a lot of protruding veins or long foreskin, we might say that is an "ugly" penis instead of a "different" penis.

    Also, I think for a lot of straight guys (and this may be stretching it since I'm not), there is a jealousy issue with the acknowledgment of a "good-looking" penis. It's not so much that the straight guy has a positive emotion attached to an image of a penis, but that he sees other penises that look different from his and recognizes that there is a trend. He then internalizes this trend as a signal from the general society. He says, "That's a good-looking penis" because he wants to fit in and not cause trouble. Further, he might have negative feelings because this trend is getting more exposure than he is. He's competing for the attention of others on something that is very precious to him.

    These are just a few examples and nowhere near representative of the diversified population at large (that's why I'm making an entire thread :smile:). There are other reasons for such an aesthetic judgment that I can think of (for example, it's not so much how the penis looks as it is attached to a person you care deeply for, flaccid versus erect aesthetics, etc.), but I don't feel like elaborating on these right now. Maybe I'll write a book lol.

    I'd like to hear from a lot of the women too, since I have no idea what's going on in their minds at any point in time, much less when they see a penis and judge it. :tongue: Please feel free to post images of what you think is a pretty penis, and also what you think is a ugly penis so a range can be established. Thanks for reading this far everyone! :biggrin1:

    Btw, thank you Henry Miller for inspiring the above paragraphs with your thread about wanting to "BE" like other guys.

    More penises. Are they pretty, or ugly, or pretty ugly?

    In my opinion a pretty penis has good symmetry, color, and shape. While my sexual preference is for a larger than average penis. I have seen some smaller penises that I would describe as pretty in the gallery, as they meet the above criteria.

    You know, the "symmetry, shape, and color" answer seems to be really dominant in many questions of aesthetics of things. This would suggest the parameters of such judgments are based on the biological and genetic structures of the eyes and the brain that analyzes and categorizes images. Thanks for responding njqt466, though I'd like to hear more about what makes a "good" symmetry, shape, and color. Which colors, how symmetrical, and what shape, and if you could why. :biggrin1:

    Haha thanks. It would be great if you could mention some specific, standout attributes of a hot cock. I'm a sociologist at heart, so this would be some great material. :tongue:

    I think that a pretty penis is something that looks just as you would imagine. If you have an idea in your head of how a cock should look, then when you see one that is the right shape, size, whatever than you will marvel at it.

    I think something constitutes 'pretty' when all of its factors add up and make something that is good looking. I wouldn't personally ever use the word to describe a dick, but that's just me!

    Edit: Sam_Solo - your penis deserves all the praise its get, its a real beauty!

    Thank you very much for the compliments flame boy! It is hard to put into words isn't it? Even if we don't mind saying what we do/don't like (for fear of alienation, confrontation, etc.), it's still hard to pin down what that inner image really looks like without being shown an example. If I had to put my own preferences down, I'd say pretty smooth texture (not many veins showing), long (I'd say 7 and over), fairly girthy (5.5 and above), and extra points if it's attached to a great body (even more if the great body has a great face). Circumcised or not isn't an issue with me, but I do tend to prefer straight or bent upward. As for coloring, any color works, though I think it looks good if the head stands out, is vibrant. Sorry if I've alienated people but that's just how it is with me up to this point. My upbringing mixed with my biological preferences and projected fantasies mix into that sexy cocktail. :biggrin1: Also the flop is killer. Anyone who's got a long hang or a long semi is good in my book. Keep the answers coming guys and girls!

    Isn't this difficult to say, just because you see a penis most of the time soft. If I would prefer a penis, then I would choose a dick like mine... Soft skin, good thickness, ect.
    Most of the time people say that penises are one of teh ugliest things, but why are most people fascinated by it. A really good question Sam. I'm fascinated by my penis, just because of the pleasure it could give me and also because I think it looks good. I'm not selfish, but if I don't admit that, it would be weird that I show of here.
    Sam, your dick is also good looking. Dicks that shrink a lot are not that "fascinating", but it also has to do how the person takes care of it. If a guy has a huge bush and a shrinked penis, it really isn't that fascinating and ugly. But if that guy trimmed his bush, I think it would be better. Very hard, because I mostly fascinated what I can feel and do with mine.

    Interesting observations Pieter. So grooming habits and a noticeable amount of upkeep on the penis partially makes it good looking. I think this is true of a lot of people, in most aesthetic matters. If it didn't take long to create, then why should we care? Lots of people could do it then (or in this case have a nice looking weiner), and it wouldn't be special or held in such high regard. This is probably both social and biological. It's social for obvious reasons, but it might also be biological because the actions are indicative of a certain pattern of character that one may find attractive. Very interesting points. :)

    Personally I don't think the way we judge a penis is really any different to the way we judge anything else. As with anything physical, bigger/faster/stronger etc. is seen as superior. Nobody is impressed by the average in anything. For example with height, the more you go past 6'3 the more people are amazed. It's not necessarily what they're attracted to or what they would want, but it still makes an impression. I don't really think we have the image of an ideal penis, because every penis is unique and there's so much variation.

    Even picking fruits or vegetables in the supermarket, we expect a certain uniformity of size, shape, colour, smoothness etc.. Variations are seen as imperfections from the ideal, and are often justified concerns. A dark patch is generally overripe, wrinkles mean it's not fresh, and so forth. Even trimming pubic hair can be compared to the person with a nice haircut or with an unruly mop of hair. The person with the haircut is generally seen in a far better light, as with anyone who looks after themselves (up to the point of vanity). Whether or not this behaviour is learned or inherent, I don't know. I think it's the same across the board though.

    there's just an obsession about the penis shape, isn't it? I had some issues all my adult, sexual, life, cause my cock isn't as the enciclopedia described ones [seen above] and it leans and curves downward a bit. it's a good size, but in an odd shape. I've even had a girl laugh at it [but I had my revange banging her HARD ;) ] which made me fell awkard in comparison.
    NOW-A-DAYS, specially after this site, and the ability [courage] to post some naked pics, I don't have as much issues as I used to have. but still would like to be more perfect down there.
    apart from that, what would I describe a perfect penis to be? a part of a very unperfect person, that with that would have the ability to conquer me! :D

    shape, color and size are ALL very important, but isn't it the person it belongs to, even more important? because if it isn't YOU'D do fine with a DILDO! :D

    It's hard to say what makes one look pretty. I guess it should not be pale or too dark, just skin tone, not have any large veins, or too many showing veins, smooth looking in texture, a clean circumcision if one has been done, the scar from it is sometimes desirable, if it is uncut then the extra skin should be smooth and not wrinkly, is should slide back nicely and not look like is was stretching the skin to release the glans. Well placed piercings are a plus, but nothing to over taking.

    But there is always exceptions to my own rules.

    I also like its texture, elasticity, grain, as well as the head-to-shaft ratio.

    Where is the poll? :wink:

    Vote 'Yes' on Sam Solo's Dick.

    I am Domisoldo and I approve this message

    Smartalk, I agree with you about the penis tie guy. I put that one up there as an example of the color, texture, and general shape that is idolized at least wherever this guy is. Especially to women, who don't have penises, it serves as a reinforcing idea of what a penis should be. In other words, it's not just a joke.

    I also want to thank the women for their responses. This sausage-fest must get tiring sometimes. From what I gather from a few of their responses, utility is greatly important in deciding how aesthetically pleasing a penis is. "It's pretty because it looks like it will feel pleasing when I put it in my mouth or in my vagina or rear." Part of this might have to do with a human's general desire not to stick obtuse, or odd-shaped things in their openings. I know that I like eating smooth foods more than lumpy, hard ones because they're generally easier to chew and the consistency allows me to enjoy the flavor rather than also focus on the differences in texture, amount of pressure needed to chew, etc. I'm not saying that penises are food, but they seem to be similar in some preferences of color, texture, and shape. Biololgical? Social? Both, and if so to what degree?

    Thanks for the posts! Keep them coming!

    Domisoldo, I'd vote for mine too. But I'm kinda biased. :biggrin1:

    I think the penis below is a "nice" one but I'm not exactly sure what makes it nice. Just an example of one that I find attractive.
