    Do you see it being as big (or small) as others do?

    When I look down, I see a small penis. When I look in the mirror though, especially a side view, I see a decent sized penis.

    I guess another thing I can relate this to is my stomach. When I look down, I just see fat. No definition whatsoever. My stomach just looks flat with a small layer of chubbiness. You can see what I mean if you look at the pics I've posted on here.

    Now look at this picture of me infront of a mirror
    [photo removed]

    As you can probably tell, it doesn't exactly how I described it from my point of view. When I look down (I actually just did right now), all I see is fat, even a bit of overlappage of fat! This isn't a self-esteem thing warping my view either, it's just what I see. People tell me I'm skinny anyways.

    Going back to what I was originally saying, the same thing happens with my penis. When I look down, I see the equivalent of what in my mind is sometihng like a "5 inch penis". When I look in the mirror though, especially at some angles that I never see myself from, it looks like something I'd think was a "7 inch penis". It's odd. Oh well.

    I'm wondering how many of you guys experience this same thing. Maybe you're a lot bigger than me but when you look down, you see "average". I'm sure it just has to do with how you feel about your cock.

    Also, one last thing--When I have my glasses on, my penis looks smaller to me! It's weird. I wear contact all the time and only have my glasses on sometimes but I noticed it happens. Then again, when you wear glasses, everything that you're looking at within your glasses gets smaller (as opposed to the blurry outside). This makes me sad. I don't want my penis to appear smaller! Just wondering if anyone else has realize this, haha.

    brother,mirrors dont lie!there's nothing wrong with you. in fact..you could consider yourself 'above average'devote some time to the gym and you'll get buffed in no time.you have no fat to burn off so,you'll gain muscle quickly.and..if you STILL think you're too small unit wise,start a pumping routine.

    Yo. First of all, there's no fat there (are you f'in kidding me?) and you're just fine in the cock department ("huge"? no, but certainly not "small", either). :smile:

    That said, you've started a number of threads recently which, IMO, appear to be creative attempts at exploring your own self-esteem issues. Just change what you can and forget about that which you can't!

    To get back OT, personally there are times when I think "hey, my cock is pretty big", but other times when I think "hey, you ain't go sh*t" (which usually occurs after perusing the LPSG gallery. LOL) At the end of the day, it is what it is, it ain't gonna change, and therefore I'm quite happy with it.

    I actually have the same thing about looking down. It doesn't appear big to me then, but in the mirror it's different. Just be happy that it looks big from the front.. at least others'll see it as it rly is.

    It's the angle you're looking down on, it makes it look smaller. I totally agree with you on that though, looks smaller to me to when I look down, but at a different angle it looks bigger.

    Also, the first thing I thought was "nice body mate" then you go on to say you're fat?

    Self-confidence at an all time low or what?

    I think that there are several discrepancies of which one needs to be aware:

    (1) As you point out, lemac, the way your body (I mean the "you" here as an indefinite pronoun), or parts of it, look when you look down at them does not agree with how they look from a perspective more like what others see, such as the perspective of looking into a mirror.

    (2) You do not look in a mirror the way you look in a photograph. A photograph, I think, gives you a much better idea of what other people see, at least in some respects.

    (3) No matter how you look at yourself -- directly, in a mirror, in a photograph, or in a video -- you can never see yourself exactly as others see you, just because you are the one doing the looking. Your impression of your own appearance will never be the same as another person's impression, just because you feel differently about what you see from how they feel about it.

    (4) Even if you get to the point at which (i) you like the way you look and (ii) you are confident that others like the way you look, that will not necessarily give you self-confidence in approaching those whom you find attractive. (Case study of this point: yours truly. But that's another story.)

    I totally understand what you mean. I always thought I was pretty small to normally hung, when I looked down. Until someday I was wanking off with a big mirror that i used to change perspective and found out, that I wasn't even that small.

    Also, I can tell you, the pic of your body looks very hot for me. can't see any fat there...

    have to say, that about sums it up. I felt from different angles mine looks decent. However, from an aerial...i always felt it was normal to small.

    Noo!

    Sorry for the misunderstanding, guys.

    I don't think I'm fat. I'm actually too skinny, if anytthing. I want to start lifting weights. I'm not very concerned, though.

    The thing I'm saying is that you can see the slight pudge from looking at my cock picks because I'm sitting down. When I look down, that's what I see, the pudge. This doesn't happen though when I look in the mirror, as you could see in the pic. I'm really not concerned about this, I just wanted to use it as a comparison of how things about yourself can look different from your point of view as opposed to in the mirror, or something.

    Sorry, didn't mean to cause all of that. The only thing I don't feel so secure about is my penis size, but I'm getting over it. The other thing was just a complimentary example

    Calboner said more than a mouthfull there.
    I'd like to ask Lemac, if I'm not being nosey...how tall are You?
    I ask cos I have a mere "average" 6" penis. I always wished I had more (mainly for it's drawing-card characteristic). But people see me naked and say I look generously built to them. Likely because I'm only 5'6". I've seen cocks the same size as mine on 6'+tall guys, and it looks like nothing on them. Yet on me, people somehow seem impressed. It's all about perspective (both literally and figuratively).
    PS - You look quite fine to me.
    Mick

    Huh huh -- he said "mouthful"! [Insert Beavis and Butthead smiley when it becomes available.]

    Just wanted to add that there is a discussion of this issue -- perceptions of dick size in relation to body size -- in another thread, "Small guys with big dicks". I seem to be another of those guys who enjoy the benefits of a less-than-average bodily size causing their dick size to be overestimated, at least in pictures!

    And, by the way, Lemac, to me your belly looks beautiful in that picture.

    When I look in the mirror, mine looks much thicker than when I look down at it. My perception of length doesn't change either way.

    I also think that you have a better midsection than me.

    After reading your post for the 3rd time, it came to me. It's isn't your penis you need to be worrying about. You mentioned 3 times all you saw is fat. That along with one chubbiness and one overlappage.

    You say it's not a self esteem thing.... YES it is. You're obsessing about something that isn't there. You are far from being fat. There are much larger things in this life to worry about than an additional 1% of body fat. Concentration camp skinny, is not healthy. No matter what you've read in the magazines.

    That's part of the issue I have. My penis isn't bigger than 6 1/2" and I'm like 6'1. I actually made a thread about this, how my penis would look pretty big/nice on a guy your height but not so impressive on a guy with my height. A few people pointed out though that this difference is only somewhat "important" in pictures, but not in person. Afterall, it IS the same cock, it's not going to feel any different for the person recieving it if it's on someone elses body.

    I see your reasoning behind this post, but honestly, I do not think I'm fat, and I know that I'm not fat. I'm just pointing out that there's a huge difference between what I see when I look down at my stomach vs. what I see when I look in the mirror (like in the picture) and comparing it to how I percieve my penis likewise.

    Despite how I originally came off in the original post of this thread, I promise you that I don't have an insecurity about my "fat" (or lack of). See how tan I am? I love going to the beach. Part of the reason I love it is because I get checked out and approached often by girls. I have no worries about walking around shirtless or anything. Honestly, I'm really OK with myself in that department.

    The only thing I really have a problem with is my penis size vs. body ratio, even if it's just in pictures. I feel my penis is slightly "undersized" for my body. I think this can't be seen too well from the pics I've put up here though because the angle is close up.

    Eitherway, the reason I made the comparison is because the honest truth is this: when I look down, I see a slightly chubby gut and a smallish penis, but when I look in the mirror, I see a pretty lean, decently defined torso and a decent-sized penis.

    Yea, looking down gives me the idea that it's small. In the mirror, not so much. And RAWR to the mirror pic. :3

    So what are you going to do about it?

    Are you just looking for confirmation that other guys have issues about their perceived vs real penis sizes?

    We get what we get and unless you want to spend the rest of your life always feeling that you don't measure up, I suggest you find a way of coming to terms with this issue. There's always someone more attractive, with a bigger dick, a better personality, etc, etc, ad nauseum.

    Women come up to you, that's great! Certainly you've realized that dick size isn't the most important issue when it comes to having great sex?!?!

    Once again, find a way to accept who you are, pointless ruminations about how your penis looks to your naked eye, with contacts on, with glasses on, from the top, from the side, in a convex mirror in a concave mirror, are going to do nothing to change what you have.

    You've got a great body, lots of big dicked guys don't. Enjoy and USE what you have, don't always wish for something else.

    I can see what LemacST is saying. In those gallery shots you have a ridge of fat right where the pubic fat pad is. That ridge is in the way of your line of vision when you look down and so obscures a bit of the penis. You probably have a more prominent pubic fat pad.

    Two things you can do. One is get pubic liposuction to suck it all out (what little there is) since the pubic fat pad contains privileged fat that the body is programmed to keep there. For someone as lean as you, you'd probably have to go Auschwitz thin to force your body to lose enough fat from that area to make a difference. The other thing is to convince yourself that what you're seeing is an optical illusion and go buy hella lot more mirrors :smile:.

    I always see a smaller penis than anyone looking at me thats why it's always a shock when it creates such a fuss.
