    Derived from MrAverage.com...

    "Experiment 2: Perception

    An average sort of bloke would be 5' 10" tall. If he as just 10% taller, he would be 6' 5". Or 10% shorter is 5' 3". That's a very small range, in terms of %, but would be perceived as a great range in height.

    Is the same true of penises? You do get freaky ones, but the vast majority fall within +-10%. So would a 6.5" long one, look very noticeably on the large size?

    There's a research project for somebody."


    I wonder if this is valid.
    When I look at my penis, I just see something average or even on the small side. I understand that there are some big guys who feel the same way about their own package. When people on here see my penis however,many of them very often think it's significantly bigger than it actually is.

    What do you guys think about this topic?

    10% of 6 = 0.6

    so that's 6 vs 6.06"

    5'10 = 70 inches

    So penis size is on a much smaller scale so there is a much smaller difference if you look at it in ten percents.

    Well, I'm 6'1 and people say I'm tall. 70 vs. 73 isn't much, only 4% difference. If someone has a big nose, or big ears, or whatever, it's usually this same amount of percentage difference (up to like 10%). Why would the penis be much different? Just an interesting thing to speculate...

    Also, my penis looks totally different when it's 5 1/2" (considered standard for "average size") than when it's fully erect. 5 1/2" to something like 6 1/4-1/2" is quite a dif.

    Mathematical error! 6"x10%=0.6" would be 6.6" not 6.06".

    6" +- 10% would be 5.4"~6.6". Not a very big range. In other words +- about a half inch.

    6' +- 10% would be 5'-9"~6'-7". A much larger range. In other words +- about 7".

    However, if you go from a 5" penis to a 7" penis, that's a gain of 40%!

    If I added 40% to my height I would be 8'-5" tall!

    Lemac, I'm telling you, it's not about ridiculous size/height ratios.

    You're tall, be happy about your height. People automatically flock to tall people. You're 6.398098bblahblahblah inches by however many wide. If you're slim, you're getting the full benefit of that package.

    If you're worried about showing off, just don't worry about it. Like outkast said "Don't pull the thang out, unless you plan to bang."

    Time to overcome your Height/Size comparison insecurities. i've been here a week and seen 4 of these threads from you. It's cool to have a complex. We all have at one point...hence the site's premise as a Support Group.

    Either do some PEs to increase the size (which i know for a fact works) or learn to accept your height/size ratio.

    6-1/4" gets the job done just fine.

    That's true, but you are dealing with measurements that are more than ten times the length of the average penis. For example, 10% of a million is still a lot, but 10% of 8 is not very much. Percentage is a ratio type thing.
    MOST men do fall into a certain range. I would say that 6.5" would look at least somewhat bigger on a short thin guy than on a tall stout guy.


    Yes, there seems to many here who are above average that think they are average, or even small. I really don't know where this comes from. Porn often gets the blame, but I know porn isn't the real world. I though most everybody realized that. Maybe not?? Yet on the other hand, if you are insecure about yourself, you will find something that's not up to par.

    If you are talking about yourself, LemacST, you do look bigger in your pics than the measurements you have given. The camera angle, lens, zoom level, and so on, make all the difference. I can even tell that many pics of commercial models are taken to "enhance" their package. If you take some time to experiment with your camera you can make it look even bigger! Most everybody else does it, so why not?

    LemacST, I am gonna say something I don't say too often. I am not into guys, but you look hot. You have a hot body, a nice cock, you are tall, and I'm sure you are handsome too. I don't see the problem myself. I really don't. I wish I looked like you do...

    You have no reason to be insecure, other than in your mind. Get out there
    have fun, and forget about your inferiority complex!:smile:
