axolotl27: I remember one day years ago thinking it was funny to read a survey listing Men's 10 worst fears. I don't remember what the others were, but #3 was Death, #2 was Public Speaking, and #1, the worst, was Impotency. For the guys pushing 50 in our group, it is no laughing matter. I asked my doctor the other day how long I could reasonably expect to go on getting erections. He said that a lot depends on my general health. I'm 69, but he says I still have the body of a man 39, with almost no fat. I have to be eternally grateful to my mother who convinced me at an early age to go through life as an exercise fanatic. Maybe a lot of it has to do with genetics as well. I'm still waiting for my hair to start turning grey. My doctor likes to tease me. He calls me a "medical rarity". And I say "You mean a genetic freak". He just smiles. I still produce large quantities of semen,--but only once a night. The doctor said that another advantage I have is only having to expand from 13 in. to 17 in. If I had to go from 7 in. to 17 in., it would take up so much extra blood that erections at my present age would probably be few and far between, if ever. In addition, my being so thick is probably an advantage as well. He told me to think of it in terms of engineering. And it makes perfect sense to me because my father [ only 5 ft. 5 in. ] had an erection of just over 18 in. which he showed me one day when he'd had a few too many and laid it along a yardstick on the kitchen table. Flaccid, it was only about half that size, and not nearly as thick as I am. He became impotent at age 50 and went into such a state of depression that he killed himself drinking. [ I hope all you guys who would love to have 18 in. are listening ]. Of all the women and girls I have been with in my lifetime, probably 95 % could only take 9 in. or less, a few up to 12 in., and one was able to take 14 in. The girl I am presently seeing, a university student, is determined to take 12 in. [ I'm not sure why ]. At the present time, she can accomodate just over 10 in. So if you have 12 in. or less, that's all you'll ever need,--unless you meet that woman I heard about who could insert an entire NFL football into her vagina without preparation.---Ax.
