    Just posted this over at the flipside of the spectrum at Measurection and brought it here.

    What do you think will happen to society if one day they made penis enlargement safe and reliable? How would this affect men? How would this affect women? How would this affect boys growing up? And what effect would it have on young girls growing up with them?
    How would larger-sized men react? How would smaller-sized men react? How would it affect the mating game?

    One of the biggest reasons I came here and everywhere else I go studying the self-image issue is to help create a possibility that a person can succeed without changing themselves through surgery. How can they get the glory under their own natural power? This is the greatest achievement that can be had when you can attain great heights BECAUSE of how you're born instead of despite it. What is the inherent potential in human beings? What is untapped and how can we tap into it?

    I originally despised vanity surgery. Not when someone's been disfigured by fire or true birth defect and such but when people surgery their forms to fit a fashion based on what other people think they should be. To get ahead by altering themselves in the physical. That never sat right with me and originally I sought to rally against this growing tide.

    But I had to realize along the way that my fight was ultimately futile. The only thing stopping some people from changing is finances and safety issues. Plastic surgery is the norm now and one day I fear that EVERYBODY will be required to change their forms just to gain employment and opportunities as society descends into worship of the image.

    I had to concede that now my mission was just to create an alternative view hoping that some would follow. To celebrate the many variations of this species and promote them as a way to counteract the larger message of 'change change change'.

    Just got through reading this message in a current thread at Measurection and realized that little stands in the way of people altering themselves to fit someone's standard: http://www.measurection.com/fusionbb/showpost.php?...

    And I have been thinking about this myself for awhile now. What would happen if one day they finally figured out how to safely and reliably enlarge the penis? Would all the work and progress made in Measurection and other self-acceptance communities go out the window as people cast it all aside to get what is seen as the Holy Grail? Economically what would be the effects? Socially what would be the effects? I've heard of older couples where the men took Viagra and now the wife is agitated due to his overgrown sex drive. And sometimes that the husband begins to sleep around as a result.

    When people alter their features they CAN in fact shift in personality. Fat people who have weight loss surgery becoming instantly thin suddenly more obnoxious and less gracious than before. Women who get implants suddenly becoming overly flirty and exhibitionist. Even dwarves who have limb lengthening surgery. I wonder how they interact with their fellow dwarves AFTER the fact.

    What do you think will happen if this became true and what worries do you have of the aftermath?

    Well for starters, the fashion industry would have to make some major "adjustments". :biggrin1:

    Number 12 Looks Just Like You

    Accepting yourself is a tough deal for anyone. Even the most together people have doubts and fears. Humans always place great stock in appearance. It's nice to convince ourselves we're above such things but it just doesn't happen that way. Appearances count for a great deal.

    With time and effort you can jelq your way to a bigger dick. If this new therapy proves to be viable, then this dream will become true for many men very soon. Men will all have the dick of their dreams between their legs. Would I do it? Yeah, to a point. I'd be happy just to be average. That's all I want. And hang. I'd love to be shower.

    I came to LPSG with similar motives. I hated having a smaller than average penis. Now I'm OK with it largely because I've learned that being big isn't all it's cracked-up to be. Don't get me wrong, I like big dicks but I also like small ones too. How it's used really is more important than how big it is. Oddly I never noticed that in the sexual relations I've had. I've brought quite a few guys some amazing orgasms just because I've learned to use my cock well in anal sex.

    More than that, LPSG has taught me to accept myself for who I am and what I have to offer. My cock is just part of that. I hope it can do the same for you.

    It would be the end of the world as we know it. :biggrin1: ROTFLMAO

    Think about the ramifications of this! You can't have 13 year olds getting penis enlargements. You'd have to put an age minimum on it like they do with breast implants. Which one of you wants to decide at what age all men finish puberty? :confused: I've read enough threads here in the last year to know some of you guys are done with puberty by age 13, some of you don't finish until 23. What shall we do split the difference? :tongue:


    Reasons I think it Won't Work:
    Men are more vain than women.
    Every man would want it, even if he didn't need it.
    How would this effect sperm production and fertility?
    We do not need high schools worldwide full of young men proudly wielding 10"+ cocks.
