    Does anyone else find this funny:
    (No offense to anyone on this, just strikes me funny)

    Do you think the fact that so many women have told men that they are "Average", and most men assume 6" is average, that so many men think they are actually 6"?

    I myself am not huge, only 8". But when I am with another guy that says he is 6", it makes me look like I have 10" or more, because they are only actually 3-4".

    So I beg, ladies, and men who are trying to be polite, be honest with the guy if he's not that big. Otherwise you have them convinced they actually have 6", and are setting them up for some embarrassing situations later on.

    I don't think it helps sometimes that confusion arises over whether it is the erect or flaccid inches that are being discussed

    they are setting themselves up...you are just watching.
    i say leave them to their thing,pun intended,
    do not piss on his parade.

    but if he is 6 then you are now...10 you say?
    just do that,lie to compensate when hanging out,
    and then take it back and say NAH...i am only 8 inches.

    you should post some pics on here,
    lots of us smaller guys get intimidated by big penis claims,
    and want to see proof. :tongue:

    I'll bet that most, but not all, men have taken a ruler and stretched it to read 6". And in our society, size has been made out to be important: big cars, big houses, big tits, big dicks, etc. I doubt that it will change in our lifetime. I read somewhere that the "real" average dick length is like 5.7" or so; less than the often reported 6".

    How about the 8 inch myth? Guys that are really only 6.5 to maybe 7 saying I am 8 inches?

    I think its probably better to rely on a ruler to figure out how big you are rather than a partner putting you in a category of "small" "average" or "large." How do you know you are 8"? Did someone say your are "large" or did you whip out a ruler?

    I would bet the "8 inch myth" is more prevalent then the "6 inch myth."

    Absolutely, but for different reasons. There's such pressure (perceived or real) on guys to say they're well-hung, and 8" is (for some reason) considered the gold standard or almost a minimum in order to call oneself hung. So these guys who are going on about how hung they are tend to say they're 8".

    This happens so much (and combined with the effect of porn) that there are a lot of people out there that think 8" is not that unusual, and that anything under 8" is 'not hung'.

    It's especially funny when someone thinks that way and is then confronted with a cock like mine (which does not make the 8" mark) and goes on about how big it is.

    You don't make the mark?! Makes me feel more adequate! :biggrin1: Well it's all about society and preconceptions about men. It's kinda sad when one thinks about it.

    Ignorance is bliss.

    Rather delusion than a penis complex.

    I still don't get why people don't just pull out a ruler and let the numbers speak for themselves. crazy.

    Well that's actually kinda my point. Even forgetting the fact that ruler pics can be faked, I don't think the numbers are really important. A big cock is big because of someone's perception of it being big. Some would think a 7" cock is big, others might consider a 9 incher to be necessary for qualification as big. It's all relative to expectations and individual perception.

    And of course it's relative to body size. 8" on skinny/small frame guys looks huge. That same 8" on a big/fat guy = not as impressive.

    To go back to an earlier point, "what is average?" I've run across the length 5.1" as a worldwide average erect size. Seems a tad low, I'd think, but....
