    from http://www.scienceblog.com/cms/node/7843 :

    A biologist at Washington University in St. Louis has been studying genital size in the male mosquitofish. His findings?

    Female fish prefer males with larger sexual organs, so having a large organ is an advantage when mating. On the other hand, a large organ causes more 'drag' in the water when fleeing predators, so well-hung male mosquitofish are more likely to be eaten -- an obvious disadvantage.

    So, be glad you're not a fish! :)

    Worth reading just for the phrase "male with a larger gonopodium." :D

    Have any of you extra-endowed gentlemen experienced any degree of "drag" (physical, social, or emotional) that you'd attribute to your member?
