    (There seems to be no forum for "Society and the Big Penis" so I threw this in here.)

    Which world culture is most obsessed with penis size?

    My gut tells me we Americans do so, thanks to our over-consumption of pornography and ridiculous cultural insecurities over masculinity. But I wonder if anyone has perspectives on Europeans, South Americans, east Asians, Indians, etc. Or maybe you've visited a country where it's all they talk about around the breakfast table...

    would have to agree with you 100% abaco......I think that because americans are so prude and uncomfortable with themselves and their bodies, they don't (or rather can't) enjoy themselves and looking at each other without their sexuality coming into play.....I kinda have a philosophy that if we didn't wear clothes, things in the world would be a hell of a lot better.... i think if we were more like other countries in the world, and didn't make such a big deal about nudity, we would be better off..... just a thought

    black guys have the biggest dicks. think about it, all black girls like black cocks, most white girls crave black cocks, and even most hott little white teen boys like me want to suck a giant nigga dick just because they are so big.

    Why was that necessary? :wtf2: Seriously, you used black appropriately and effectively before, why lapse into derogatory names to describe your predilection? FYI not all black girls like black cocks, I'm actually quite picky about the black and white cocks I suck or do more with.

    Well the state of New York got the same population (~20 million) as all the Nordic countries together. :smile: I don't think we are any different than others.

    ok...this is one of those things that I think transcends boundries and cultures and race, it is a basic commonality that men everywhere share. maybe we can build on this one thing we have in common!! after all...Japan has their penis festival; wasn't jelqing an arab invention?; there are a number of tribes in africa that tie weights to cocks to lengthen them to the knees of young men; americans have pills and other remedies (not proven) that are sold to make a man's cock longer; spain and mexico has bullfighters that purposely wear their pants in a way to accent their cocks down their legs; italians practically invented tight pants for men; englishmen centuries ago took to the codpiece as a way of displaying their manhood, the scots and celtic people wear kilts with nothing under them as a way, I am sure originally, to easily display their manhood, germans and polish developed many many different sausages in phallic shapes, indians have been reading the kama sutra for centuries filled with pics of large stong erect phallaus'; ancient egyptains erected oblisks to the heavens...was the shape of them purely coincendental?!. the list goes on and on.
    but hey...the're just my observations!

    BigMeatNJ,

    I think you are correct. It cuts across all cultures, and I think you will find Asian cultures too have a culture of cock size. I think it is human nature.

    BigMeatNJ,

    I think you make a good case, but you're looking at specific examples of cultural artifacts that may or may not have any real bearing on the day-to-day lives of individuals. You can't really prove the case that all cultures are big penis obsessed in this way anymore than you can prove, say, that all cultures are obsessed with automobiles, just because there are cars in every country.

    There's PRESENCE and AWARENESS and maybe even CELEBRATION but what I'm talking about is the kind of obsession that causes issues of self-worth. Obsessiveness to the point of psychological and sociological damage, where a kid can see a porn star and come to believe that he himself is biologically flawed and less-worthy individual than the man with the big penis, even if he is average.

    I have a friend, to provide a counterexample, who's living in a semi-rural western section of India. I recently sent her an old BBC story about how Indian men are too small for the international standards of condom production. She tells me that just from her experience, Indian men are smaller than Westerners, but they don't seem to care, or even notice. This is a culture, of course, where arranged marriage is the standard. The Kama Sutra notwithstanding, it doesn't sound (at least circumstantially) like their size matters to them in their daily lives.

    (Just for the record, Indian men are probably not naturally smaller. There are issues of nutrition here that probably factor in most heavily, especially in the region where my friend is.)

    Which culture is so obsessed that it actually affects how the men reflect on themselves -- or how the women reflect on them? Which is the culture where size is a MAJOR factor in that culture's definition of what it is to be "masculine"?

    Actually I believe that American culture is the most likely of all to survive.

    First of all, American culture is dynamic: it changes and adapts. Moreover, there is not a very homogeneous concept of American culture - being American means many different things to many different people.

    Furthermore, American culture is a culture of appropriation, individuality, and reshaping. It is a culture that can easily find its way into other cultures, and it similarly is constantly borrowing from other cultures. In many ways American culture is a universal donor of culture and a universal recipient.

    If you were trying to be clever, you certainly did not succeed. Perhaps you would like to elaborate more on why you believe that American culture will eventually die? What do you believe American culture is?

    Just a thought - but isn't the American culture built on greed and envy? Isn't that why they have proved so great? Isn't everyone getting a bit bored of American Imperialism? - from a genuine spectator :)
