    What happened to this website. When I first joined years ago, it was, what it says it is. A Large Penis Support Group Website. Of course it was going to draw the crowd that just wanted see large penises. But the Discussion forums, were for actual support. From members, too members.
    That's not what seems to exist anymore. People have started to abuse this site for cruising each other, making fun of each other, gossiping, phony photos, and a lot of ATTITUDE.
    Those who actually are extremely endowed do actually suffer from challenges in there life. It's not a "boo-hoo, poor you, has a big dick" simplicity. Being extremely endowed can lead to psychological and physical issues for a man. They can start in their youth, it can cause shame issues, family problems, friend problems, clothing problems, athletic problems, medical problems, professional problems, etc, etc, etc.
    Why not provide a website, where someone can come, to seek help from others, and offer help by others. Men already have carry around a big enough stigma in life about being able to comfortably talk about men's health issues. Our fathers and friends influence us not to talk about this stuff unless it's in sexual candor about a situation. In fact I have even lost a good friend, because he was so embarrassed about having testicular cancer, that he did not go to any one for help, and eventually he passed away.
    I can understand the desire to have some fun stuff on this website, but it is time to starting changing how people are treating each other on this website. Face it, some people are going to ask some questions or talk about some situations in these forums, that is going to sound silly, or made up to you. But they wouldn't be posting on here, if they didn't didn't really want to know the answers.
    As for those who come to this website, not for support, but because you are interested in men with large penis's: Show some respect. There are 10 million websites out there for porn and cruising each other. If you want be an active member in this website, show your support to the members who are here for help, by not abusing this website or the members who subscribe to it.

    Thank you for my 2 minutes.

    Some people only post less than once a month on average. They may not understand this site.

    Yep, been thinking this myself. I get the feeling this has turning into a MySpace social networking site. Wish we could get back to "business".

    Things change...always do, but if you start a thread about a problem I've seen lots of people respond with help and encouragement.

    I've also noticed a big change here.

    One of the things I've noticed is a lot of younger naive members who are seriously lacking experience or knowledge of global issues and cultures, whom jump in aggressively to defend their, often inherited, views. They are clearly making an arse of themselves and offending just about everyone born before 1980.

    Then there are a fair share of actual trolls intent of stirring shit for the sake of it and sadly one or two supercilious people whom if not for the grace of their intellect would clearly be in the previous two categories.

    Having said that, there are still a number of very kind, honest and genuine people here who can offer a wealth of information, wisdom and support on a wide range of issues, penis related and otherwise.

    I agree the site has change since I first darkened it's door and there are a few problems here that indicative of a large site membership and relative monitoring, but I do still feel LPSG has a great many merits as an online community as well as a support and reference site.

    It can do with a spring clean but I’m still pleased to be a member and am more than willing to offer help as and when I can to anyone else here. I’m not just here for the shit flinging, lol.

    Viva LPSG.

    I know I am a lady and the only cock I have is in my drawer right now, but I agree with the OP.

    One of the reasons I joined this site is because I have come into contact with a young gentleman who is extremely large. He is naive, new to the whole concept of how large he is, has been sheltered for his whole life and now knows how he is blessed/cursed, through me.

    Whenever he has come onto this site, people have abused him, called him a liar about how large he is. The one pic he posted was stolen. I have also been called a liar.

    I have been trying to help him with the social ramifications, unfortunately introducing him to this site has only been negative for him.

    He has stopped showering at his gym because he is only stared at and given dirty looks.

    He has serious clothing issues.

    I emailed some people on this site who are almost as big as he is, asking if they could help him, but, no one believes me. I am not about to put another pic of him or ask him to put anything on here or anywhere on the net.

    This site is fun for me, the threads, the chat but I also realize it is for support and really wish he could get it.

    Rant over...

    I do like this site but the fakers and liars annoy me. Tensions run high in any aspect of life from time to time so I suppose arguments and bickering are part and parcel of being on a forum - but there's just no cause for some of the wild exaggeration and stealing of pictures that goes on.

    I've only checked out the gallery a couple of times but I've seen dick pics from pornstars and other pictures that have been recycled on the internet for years - complete with small dimensions, fuzziness, and blurred edges. How does anyone think we'll believe that? The wild claims are just bullshit too - I mean I saw a guy state he was 15x8 recently. It's out of control, and I wouldn't even care, it's just that it detracts from those who are completely honest.

    Other than that there are some very nice people on the site and I want to thank those who have contacted me or left comments.

    ^ 15x8? I think he may want to purchase one of those ruler things...

    I think this place is fun if you want it to be fun and supportive if you just ignore the few trolls lurking around...

    i think the thread starter has a point. Most guys put up fake pics and get all this praise. Then a really well endowed guy comes along with real penis issues and everyone either totally ignores him or calls him a fake. I guess this is a microcasim of the real world today. Perception and illusion casting come before reality and sustenance.

    I have to admit the large penis' on this site attracted me initially. But that alone would not have made me stay.
    I like the atmosphere and the sense of community on this site. That declines greatly when people are being rude and disresrectful.
    There is a lot of silly stuff here but I also see a lot of serious issue's too. And a lot of helpful people. A few that are quick to judge and be rude but most honestly try to help.
    This is the only group I have ever joined so I'm not speaking from experience but it feels like a large family. And we cannot choose our family members. There's always going to be that Uncle or Aunt you can't stand.
    If someone post's a question and I feel like I have some input that may be of value I post. I have seen some rude post's simply to say that question has already been ask. And that's fine but it could be done nicely. But there again it's human nature if a person has an aggressive personality that's how they are going to be on here too.
    I do have issue's with how new people are treated. I haven't had any trouble personally. But I have seen other new people treated badly.
    I am guilty of playing the games. I think that's a good part of this site. Who would want to hang out on here if it was all seriousness. That would make for a rather boring atmosphere.
    I try to be supportive of the community and help if I can. Even if it's just to compliment someone and raise their spirits. Small gestures I know but it all adds up.
    All in all I think it's a great place. Being new I don't know how it was before though. Maybe if everyone would stop and think before posting a rude comment it would be an even better place to be.
    I don't have a penis but I feel like I get a certain level of support at a time in my life when I need it. Just my thoughts.

    I've been frequenting this place for 2+ years and it's largely the same as it's always been. Just stick to what you're interested in and ignore the rest.

    I liken LPSG's forums to a conglomeration of "mini-sites", and I think that's partly responsible for its uncanny ability to attract such a wide swath of humanity. On the one hand you've got those who can barely construct a coherent sentence through their drooling over the glorious sight of a huge cock, and on the other there are those (obviously far more intelligent) individuals who wish to debate the finer points of politics and could care less about the size of your manhood. And then there's those who need to extricate themselves from the friggin' computer and explore reality for awhile. :rolleyes:

    I often find that if I restrict my perusal to just a few forums I'm completely oblivious to firestorms raging elsewhere on the site (a good example of which is the recent "banning blitz", which I still know very little about and could frankly care less).

    You hardly joined years ago. More like just over one year, and there are plenty of members that have been here a good three or four times longer than that who are still enjoying the site and are still around.

    Years ago? You must have joined under a different name then.:confused:





    I agree that lpsg members should counsel posters that sincerely need advice in a sensitive manner. However these persons aren't always what they seem to be - specifically those that do troll posts. Because of those trolls I'm sure that there are a significant number of members who would be wary of both the post and the "postee", when that suspicion is aroused.

    Your advice is good, but please remember to notify the mods when a troll attacks.

    And also newbies should use the search function as a first resort to find previous threads which dealt with their issues. IMO if they do post they will still find support in an event.

    I actually joined last November 07 because: 1) I've got an unruly, clown-size tool that has always been and will continue to be bothersome and hoped to find some new info that would make my life a bit easier, and 2) I just finished my first year of post prostate cancer treatment, can still "get it up" as much as someone with a clown-sized tool ever is able to get it up and I hoped to find men with whom I could commiserate and whine with about such painful procedures as having a balloon catheter rammed up one's urethra, living with it for a week or two, getting it yanked out, and then having to figure out/learn (actually, psychologically force myself) to pee like a race horse once again. Although I know very little about race horses I have heard that they are great a taking a major piss. I may be mistaken.

    Alas, not many folks are here who can actually share advice on those subjects.

    But it has been a good place for me to lurk about when my squeeze has been out of town and I needed something besides another book by Borges to put me to sleep. I keep coming back because of several very intelligent people whose posts I admire. Even those whom I find repulsive egoists tend to clobber together well-written provocative posts worth reading, and for the average 'Merichun or Brit that's a big plus! The occasional typo or misspelling I can forgive. Hell, I have a hard enough time remembering the correct usage and spelling of pedestrian English these days because I've been thinking, speaking, and writing 95% of the time in a different language for 35+ years. Yet sadly, there's no question the majority of the 18 to about 37 years-old folks (note, I said majority -- not everyone) who post to this site didn't get their money's worth in public or private school English classes. I swear, the next time I see someone write irregardless I'm going to jump down their throats with several volumes of the old OED and hope they get the message.

    On the plus side, any club, ad hoc message board, or rant-and-rave site that allows Percy Dovetonsils to be a member is a place I know is a place I'll enjoy.

    Also, Rugypup, you're welcome to pee on all the bushes in my front yard as much as you want. Just don't dig up flower beds.

    I entered a while back, under another name, but I dropped out. I said before I just got busy. But then, as now, I see some concern with people who feel a little put off by the organ they can't ignore, or pops up when they can't deal with it...you know, annoyed by something that should be friendly, or get turned down by a woman because the party in his pants happens to be a python...

    ...the fakers and the unstable and people trying to make trouble are always about. Given enough time, they hang themselves and get banned, like the twit who posted the "Bill Cosby" thread.

    Let's continue, have some fun, some good discussions and good arguments.
