    Okay, I'm generalizing a bit, and I hesitate to even start this thread for fear I may incite some angry debate. But here goes....

    Lately, I'm think that while both straigth men and gay men like the penis, they have a different perspective. I think that it could be said that straight men "respect" the penis of another man, while gay men are "attracted to" the penis of another man. Of course, like the yin and yang symbol, there is a little of both in the other. Straight men are, of course, a little attracted to the penis. And gay men are, of course, also respectful of the penis. But I think that overall one reaction overrides the other.

    I don't really care much if they respect it or are attracted to it. Just suck it.

    But this is a serious subject. I get what you're saying Gany - the straight guys might admire the penii of others, but just don't necessarily want to do anything with them - looking with admiration and touching are two different things. On the flip side, they might also go to the extent of showing theirs and enjoy the feedback they get, but the gay guys WOULD touch if given the opportunity. That's a pretty high level over simplified generalization of course, but I get what you mean nonetheless.

    I don't much care for penises in general. I'm pretty happy with the way my own penis looks.... and have been impressed by a small handful of pictures I have seen on this website, but in general I find them gross.

    Gany, you are probably stereotyping moreso than generalizing.

    Some penises are certainly more aesthetically interesting or pleasing than others; but for me to be "attracted" to a penis, I also have to be attracted to the person to whom it is attached.

    If I find a man unattractive for any reason (whether physique, personality, hygiene, or other) I have no desire whatsoever to see or touch his penis.

    I don't think it would go over very well if I walked up to one of my co-workers and said "I respect your penis".

    Well, the pics of the guy in Madame Zora's gallery spring to mind.

    and, oh yeah... Vinny's are of course spectacular.

    happy?

    I tend to agree with DC DEEP to some extent. If I'm not actually attracted to the guy, then I don't want to see his cock. However, if you presented the same cock to me in a photo, then I may have a totally different reaction.

    I think there is a unilateral fascination with cocks on both sides of the sexuality fence, but men (and now I'm generalising) aren't supposed to admit to this or pursue knowledge of other men's cocks, and how they operate.

    Honestly, I wish that every man could freely look, touch, feel and taste whomever they wanted to in their quest for their sexual identity. If there wasn't so much stigma about sexuality, I reckon there would be a whole lot more happy people around.

    Ganymede, I think like all of us, you tend to universalize your own experience. This thread, along with some others of yours, would make more sense to me if it were about you rather than about all guys.

    Unattractive men sometimes have really interesting penises though. I have encountered a few not so attractive guys with really nice looking penises. If hadn't gotten to know them better, I never would've known that their cocks were really interesting. (God sometimes plays tricks on people.)

    I have also fallen for very attractive guys and they proved to be sexually disappointing to me (not because of cock size--I don't care much about that.) they weren't really about me--it was all about them. Sometimes the very good looking think they are the center of the universe but they are just one of many stars in the universe.

    If you look out of the window of a passing train,
    Respect? You must be joking, some members of the opposite sex have anything but respect from my experience, causing anxeity in my life. :rolleyes:

    (Please note that I am not referring to anyone here, I am referring to the female population off this board, the ones I tend to talk to in day to day life, like... my sister.)
