    I am guilty as charged, so I'm not pointing the figure at anyone. I've strapped a ruler to my penis several times, each time hoping that my cock has grown a little since the last measuring.

    Going through the gallery, I notice that many men have pictures of a ruler or tape measurer up against their penis. Lately, guys are lying quarters on their penises, which I find a bit unusual.

    It occurred to me that you rarely see women preoccupied with their size of their breasts, at least not to the extent that men seem to be preoccupied with their penis size.

    I would guess guys put a tape measure against their penis here would be to prove/confirm their size.
    I think it would be pretty normal in other situations, you would want to know how you measure up

    But that's just it. WHY do we want to know how we measure up? At what point did penis size become a competition?

    'Cos we're competitive, and see it as a measure of manliness and virility, I guess?

    Ya, big dick, me strong, rawr.
    I'm sure at least some people think having a big dick makes them more of a man, or conversely a small dick making a guy feel less of a man.
    Ego must play some part

    Why are males so into measuring?

    I've heard this rumour that some people think size matters!

    but not me, I could never be so vapid and shallow :wink:

    Other men measure their biceps. I think there is a clear mental connection between penis and biceps, but I am not sure if big biceps necessarily implies a big penis.

    Isn't it male nature? Who has the biggest wheels, the biggest flatscreen TV, most powerful hedge trimmer, fanciest bbq grill, etc. That's like all the guys talk about at every family get together of mine, age range 15-85.

    To paraphrase Sir Edmund Hillary, I've measured mine because it's there.

    Good question. Probably because size matters?

    Men are into it because its mentioned all the time. Not measuring but size in movies and books size is the item of importance and you find females in movies discussing size as either big or small and big gets the smile small gets sad looks. Every porn story mentions size too.


    Women aren't immune to it because they female breast size is also mentioned all the time from one end to the othere. Small and females in films and books feel insecure and men in films and books wanting a big breasted woman and the staring at the big breasted woman.

    I blame Hillary.

    But, see, here's the thing... This forum is devoted to "large" penises, and it is populated mostly by males, gay, bisexual, and some straight men.

    There is no female counterpart to this forum that I know of. I don't think there's a website about support for large breasts where you will find women posting pictures of themselves measuring their breasts. The only such forum I can think of would be a medical forum where women were considering having breast reductions.

    Sigh. I guess what I'm trying to say is that as males, the size of our penis is mixed in with eroticism, or something. Who knows? :rolleyes: (I think too much sometimes.)

    Ya true. Teens, Milfs, Porn Stars, even women with big butts like it big.
    Where does it end? :confused:
    Girls 20 or over who arent mothers and also have small butts are all thats left.

    Hmm, I wouldn't say better, but bigger looks more powerful.

    Yet, too much power can lead to some vulnerability.

    Yep, with eroticism, but also with power. Actually, it os not exactly about penises we are talking about, but about the phallus, and phallus is power.

    Breasts can be changed made larger, smaller, perkier..

    Edit: Forgot to add, women measure their breasts all the time for bras.
