    I've seen a couple of people here that are 8-9 inches long and over 6 inches in girth who say things like "I'm big, just not huge". I'm wondering how that size can NOT be considered huge by anyone'sstandards. Of course, there's an extremely small percentage of men who are a real 10" long, but that's just monsterous anyways. It's like considering yourself not all that well off if you're a multi-millionare as opposed to a billionare. Are these people just being extremely modest?

    In some cases this could be modesty. In other cases it's not. I have seen guys say "I'm 8x6 and am only Average." Some people really believe the average is that high.

    I've been told I'm big several times, but I can't see it. But then, I'm not on the 10" scale.

    From what I've read, the average is about 5.5-6 x 4.75-5, but people just kinda round it up to 6x5, is that true?

    In my opinion anything over 7" (with complimentary girth) is big and above 8" is huge, 9+" is just monsterous

    Well, kinda. The original size study done by Kinsey years ago, came up with about 6.5" for average lenght and about 5" for girth. This was a self reported study, however. Since that time some studies where a medical staff did the measuring were done, and the results were considerably less. Most now agree on 5-5.5x4.5-5 being average. 6x5 is very close and is certainly in the average range. I had heard for years (and believed) that the average was about 6-7" long. I never heard much about girth until lately. Men have a tendancy to exagerate their size a bit. Just look at the "afraid to ask forums" and you would think the average really is 8"!

    People tell me I'm big, but it just doesn't look that big to me. Maybe cuz I've seen it my whole life...I don't know.

    The people telling you that are about to wrap their lips around the beast, Quercusone. It probably looks plenty big from that vantage point.

    Uh, yes, you are very big. I can relate to what you said in a lesser degree. Hmm.

    It's called being realistic. With all the internet exaggeration, everyone seems to think anything over 7 inches is like 9 or 10 inches. It's really fucking stupid. It's even gotten to where girls will exaggerate the size cocks they've seen/had. Several chicks have judged me to be like 9 or 10 inches, and I know I'm maybe only 7.5 - 8", depending on the day and mood.

    Some guys might be trying to not show off or brag or something. But seriously maybe they don't know what normal is, like for a long time I didn't know what avg was, I don't go around comparing my dick to other guys. Even now most of the numbers you hear are length, if someone asked me what's the avg. girth I'd just have to guess because really I don't even know for sure.

    I have been asked my size and I have said only 8x6.25 inches, not a giant like some guys in here. Yes 8 inches long is above avg, but there are some 9 and 10 and even 11 inchers on this site and some in the real world out there. Yes 10 and 11's are very rare but they do exist. I guess if we had a scale for size like small, medium, avg, above avg, big, large, huge and giant we would think of ourselves even different than we do now. A female friend one told me she judged cock size by small, large and fuck that is huge. Seems a litle more simple than what we consider in the size department now. I knew a guy that told a female he was hung huge. He had 8.5 inches. When she saw it hard she said: Oh I have had much bigger several times. It destroyed this guys ego. We just need to remember that no matter how big we are there is always someone a little bigger. So that is why I say only at the start of the size statement.

    It's all relative LemacST. From my POV, it's nice to be in a community where you are just normal. Furthermore it's good to see guys who are genuinely bigger, so you can learn to leave your penile ego behind and get on with more important stuff.

    Amongst all the silly stuff, you will find some gems. :wink:

    I think the girl saying she's had much bigger several times is about girls overestimating/bragging/lying than anything else. I mean, it could happen but the stastical chances of sleeping with several guys over 8.5 even if you are looking for big ones is slim (unless you are Danni-Licks and see 15" cocks on an hourly basis).

    This is it. The way people talk you end up thinking that 7.5 - 8" is nothing to boast about - did you hear yourself say " ..... I'm maybe only 7.5 - 8", ....."? When in actual fact that is a really big dick.

    Out in the world it's still generally assumed that my penis size (a shade under 7") is average or perhaps a bit above average - the old, Kinsey 'avearge' of 6.5". But compared to the more recently established average of 5.5", mine is 25% bigger which ought to be enough to qualify as a big dick. But I don't expect anyone to be in awe of my 7" around here. I came here to gain and contribute perspective.

    Another factor (in addition to men and women bragging/ overexaggerating/ bad judge of size/ etc) is that porn tends skew the perception as well. Most men in porn are bigger than average (Kinsey or whomever), and if that becomes your frame of reference, then your self-perception will be skewed.

    Well....I consider myself big and hung, but modesty (what little I have) prevents me boasting too loudly. I'd prefer to hear it coming from others.

    There is also the fact that there are some true monster penises out there. I fall into the top couple percent of men for penis size, but that means that in a room of 100 men there are at least a couple men larger than me. In a city of 300,000, with half the population men, 3000 men are larger.

    That said, it should be noted that it is the total package that counts. Some of those larger are geriatric, some are nelly bottom swish queens, some have a large but otherwise unappealling phallus, and on and on.

    But the point is, if one wants to brag with swagger, one had better be packing a REAL double digit dick length with a commensurate girth (minimum of 6"), and preferably the penis will be well formed and free of defects. Of course, if one has such a dick, bragging is hardly necessary.

    I think guy's depth perception is pretty skewered towards themselves. An analogy I'll use is the side window mirror in a car that says images are closer than they appear. So I could see how a guy with 9" looks down and doesn't think he's as large as he really is. If anything I think people overestimate more than they underestimate though. I hear guys say "I honestly thought if was bigger" after they've first measured themselves. I doubt even video or a mirror helps that perception much either.
