    Does this make sense?

    In doing research on the issue, it seems that about 50-60% or males are not happy with the size of their penis.

    In the "definitive penis size" survey site it shows that about 40% of males are close to 7 inches or larger which could be considered large.

    A conclusion would be that the 50-60% that are unhappy are actually the one's with the smaller penises.

    In other words, those that are unhappy with the size of their penis are the ones with the smaller penises. Those that are satisfied actually have large penises.

    This logic pooh poohs those that say that "small penis syndrome" is based on inaccurate information.

    ok so here is how i see it,

    i think men are nuts about size
    because we think women want to get reamed
    by shane diesel....but say ..."oh honey.you are perfect"
    when they see a big cock you can feel the tension in the air.
    but they will evade the topic and out and out lie.
    not all women...but ALOT from my experience.

    that, and i am sure gay men fear chad hunt or some other gaystars.
    bigger fills the orifice better hitting more spots,
    i think it also radiates a sense of safety for some weird reason.

    so i think it all gets wacky not because "we" like the looks of it big
    but moreso our significant other liking it looking BIG.
    if they liked small and everyone was screaming smaller is better
    than we all would start wanting less in our pants,

    if the hottest girls on tv start saying how they love a small girth
    alot of girls will try to reach that goal in their men,
    making fun of the bigger guys...calling them "anteaters"
    or whatever else those little hussies have up their sleeve.

    point is...bigger is better if everyone else thinks it.
    smaller is better if everyone else thinks it.
    in ancient greece it was seen as gross to have a big one.
    but today it is ALL about the big one.

    times change and so do the trends.
    just now we all want big ones and it sucks,cuz' ya get what ya get.

    Does it really matter? Aren't there weightier things to talk about? The endowment one inherits is such that one can neither claim fame or blame for its impressiveness or its presumed inadequacy. One has to learn to make do with what one has and a bit of dilligence on the part of a man in that can make for greater happiness for two people.

    Interesting thought.
    Could be.
    There are some issues with the definitive penis size survey.
    Although, I agree, it was pretty cool when it came out.
    When was there stuff like that before the internet?

    To see if your theory was valid, you would have to compare reported satisfaction to reported size by participant. That is to say, you'd have to set up a survey that could keep track and cross reference particpants responses like that. You couldn't do it on LPSG. I know some of this kind of thing was done on the definitive penis size survey. I believe they investigated possible correlations between penis size and shoe size, etc.

    It is important to remember though in any case, that correlations do not necesarily indicate causal relationships.

    On a final note on this topic, it makes sense. We tend to make a pretty big deal about penis size. If you have a big one, you might be likely to be confident and happy about yours size. On the other hand the reverse may be true.

    Another interesting study would be perceived penis size, against reported contentment, against actual size compared to average percentiles.
    So, if guys who thought they were big, were happy, and whether they actually were big....and perhaps even more so, if guys who thought they were small were unhappy, and if they are "small" after all. This kind of survey I believe would have to be conducted with actual medically supervised standard measurments as opposed to self reporting to have any merit.

    And lastly, yes, what the last poster said was true. In large part, penis size preferences are culturally determined, and vary greatly over time and among different groups. These preferences are internalized and effect an individuals self perception and internalized social rank. The same may be said to be true for perceptions of weight, height, aspects of beauty or style and race/ethnicity.
    However, in the case of penis size, there may be some basic biology at work. It may be that yes women (and/or men) prefer a larger penis, or that some of them do.

    Poster: have you read some of the other threads in this topic? You say this topic isn't weighty. The other topics in this thread have titles like:
    Cell Phone Cameras in Locker Rooms
    Say Something Nice About the Penis Above You
    This girl wouldn't FUCK cause I did her sister

    But you have a problem with the one topic that actually asks a serious, thoughtful question and gets some serious thoughtful answers. I'm dumbfounded. Easy answer for you is to just ignore topics you don't like.

    The "definitive penis size survey" is spectacularly inaccurate. No one's actually measured for it, and there's no scientific methodology to selecting participants. It's fun for entertainment value and nothing more.

    If you want some real numbers, use something like this:

    Average Penis Size

    Only about 16% of men (caucasian, young adult) have penises with erect length of 7 inches or more. Not 40%. Less than 1% have anything over 8.

    And I think you'll find that with the emphasis men have put on penis size, that there are very few men of any size who wouldn't add at least 1 inch more if there were a way to do it safely / naturally.

    I might point out that your choice of words "A conclusion..." is well chosen--assuming your numbers are correct, it still isn't safe to assume that those who are unhappy with their size are exclusively the "smaller" guys. They're two different pieces of data, measuring different things, so you can't assume they stack like that :0) Interesting thought, though!

    The survey actually has data regarding how guys feel about their size broken down into size groups. Dissatisfaction is, not surprisingly, more prevalent among small guys but is not exclusive to that group. Check it out.

    As far as the accuaracy of the different surveys, if you just subtract a quarter of an inch, girth and length, from the self measure definitive survey you will get pretty much the same figures as the average penis size survey.

    While I think that probably most men would like to be bigger regardless of their actual size, it makes sense that men who are big are probably more likely to be satisfied with their size. I'm small, quite dissatisfied, but i've talked to small guys who are satisfied with what they've got. I've talked to big men who say that size doesn't matter to them, but that's easy to say when you are big and have nothing to worry about. What I've never met is a guy who says he wishes he was smaller.

    I've told my friends, I've told everyone here, I've told anyone who cared to listen that I wished that I were smaller. It sounds insane to some guys that I want what I have. No, not real small, just a bit smaller.

    Let's put this in perspective: I weighed less than 100 lbs in high school. My first wife always had a weight problem in high school. She used to laugh at me when I said I was always self-conscious about my weight and wished I'd have weighed more. The said she dreamed of when she would weigh less. She'd kill to have my weight and cannot understand why I'm not happy with it.

    Same for penis size. I cannot think of one positive effect it's had on my life. I can point to many, many negative things. This may well be a psychological issue that I have to work through, but it's been years so I don't see that happening soon. I hide it. I share it with one person who appreciates it. But for the most part, count me among those dissatisfied.

    Hi LittleDude...

    First, let me say WELCOME.....and ENJOY!!!
    (which I know you will) :biggrin:

    Second....you say you are "small", however, that could be any size according
    to your statement above. But, just let me say....and I know these sayings are
    cliche, but....."size isn't everything"....."it's how you use it that matters."

    My father said these words to me when I was about 12y/o, or so, when he gave
    me his "birds and bees" talk. Of course, he had no way of knowing that I had
    already been having sex for a number of years...:cool:

    Earlier, I had "spurted" and was larger in size for my age, but it had stopped and
    my friends were overtaking me in the size department. One of my father's poker
    buddies told him that his son said I was small and that some of the guys were
    making fun of me during swim class at the Y (nude swimming).

    I might also say, that your cock isn't your only sexual organ.....although you may
    not think of them, you have many. For instance, your hands, eyes, lips, tongue,
    your voice and the words you speak, your attitude regarding others and your ability
    to be a caring and loving person, and yes, your personality, etc. They all are just
    as important as your cock, or for that matter the size of your cock.

    I am still small, compared to those charts and so called standards....well, maybe I'm
    just average or just below average. But, I have never let it get in the way. Yes, I
    would like a "bigger one", but I know "what I have works"...and "works well", thank you!!
    So, if I never get any bigger, I can say with pride..."I am satisfied." So, you can count
    me in that number of "small ones" that "is satisfied."

    Well, maybe I'd be a bit MORE satisfied if it grew just a little bit more.....:biggrin:
