    You are what you are as far as I can see, but I can see from reading posts here it is a very sensitive issue. Why?

    It's a guy thing. We want know where we stand. Most of us guys equate penis size with masculinity. At least to some degree. It is a sensitive subject for a lot of of us. We want to be bigger than other guys. We want women to desire us, and we think size is part of that desire.

    Yes, we are what we are, but we want to know where we stand. We may find it hard to live with what we are.

    What's your take on this subject? Does the size of potential partner matter to you?

    This is what I'm dying to know. How much does size matter to MOST women. I know it's a personal preference, but there has to be a median somewhere.

    zaza, it's been so liberating for me to be a part of this forum since 2001.

    "Size" has been on my mind my whole lifetime, and to read of (now) literally THOUSANDS of other men worldwide who are equally obsessed (?) fascinated (?) whatever, ----has REALLY helped ease my mind.

    I dunno. Perhaps we males are (?) "predisposed" somehow to caring about penis size? --Could be.

    And, from what I'm reading....here and EVERYWHERE on the internet...
    Men are much more concerned over penis size than women ever could be (generally speaking, of course) :wink:

    You'll never get me to believe any differently either. I don't care WHO the man is, what he represents in life, his upbringing, his education, his social status, what he considers appropriate or inappropriate in discussion topics, polite society, or whatever-----

    That man is going to care about his penis !


    (and be curious about the next fella, too!) :wink:

    For me it's merely a substitute for religion...

    Within this religion there have, over the years, been several schisms, and each of these factions have their own idea as how to correctly measure a penis.
    What they all have in common, however, is that they all chose a method from which they themselves will benefit in some way.

    This may be a slight caricature on my part, but(sadly) it isn't that far off the mark.

    You are what you are -- that's true -- but most guys like to put a number on themselves, which personality-wise isn't that easy, but penis-wise it can be done; sort of.

    Besides... Do we really want to be what we are?

    I just dislike seeing inaccurate or imaginary numbers being tossed around about any topic. If it's worth a number, it's worth an honest and accurate number.

    There will always be false prophets.

    "Why is accurate measuring and that fraction of an inch so important to you? "
    It's something that stays with us from doing subjects like technical drawing at school.
    Most of the measurements here don't split into fractions of less than a half as far as I've seen.There are a few extremists who talk about quarters of an inch but I think if a guy is happy with the number of whole inches he has then he's less likely to be concerned with fractions.

    i think viking said it best, as to how i look at the whole measurement thing.
    i quit caring and just excepted it is not a monster that alot of women seem to be seeking.
    gay men seem to like it though. duh. :)

    I have a buddy who is very enthusiastic about his length being 8 3/4! I find it amusing!

    If I were to take a guess, those who would wish to exaggerate, lie or merely measure down to the nearest millimeter are only trying to get around general misconceptions about size in general.

    Porn usually expresses over-exaggeration toward size. (how many times have we seen a guy who's an honest 7 or 8 being described has having a "foot long" penis, or astronomical numbers being applied to guys with 9 or above? This is, of course, NOT counting the obvious fakes.) I think that causes a great misconception of size in a lot of people. I remember a girl I was speaking with telling em about all the guys she had been with, and the largest being 8 inches. I came to find out that she was greatly overestimating the size of her past encounters.

    Now while that overestimation can be a good thing to guys who are truly large, guys who are above average to average will feel inadequate in that situation, not knowing all along that they probably compare or even surpass the expectations of their partner.

    Of course, in order to fell better, they may round up the number... they may find out that they measure larger from a certain angle, as long as they get a number that "sounds" good, they can be happy.

    Personally, I'm kinda past putting on numbers. It provides too many misconceptions, and really the penis varies so greatly in size and shape that one "9x6" can look completely different than another. This is mostly why I don't put any measurements in my gallery, and just take a bunch of pics from different angles. This way, those who see it can be the judge, and not be confined to a pre-conceived set of numbers.

    For me, every fraction of an inch matters because I am not big! In fact I am not even average when it comes to girth. I have a need to claim every bit I can!

    When I measure girth it feels great to see a 1/8th inch gain if I just pumped a little bit. Just this morning I measured my girth and was dissappointed because I was only 4 3/8" around. I had been jelqing and doing some light pumping and was holding a solid 4.5" for quite a while. Hadn't kept it up and now I lost an 1/8"...and I thought, DAMN! getting thinner again!

    So every fraction matters to me!

    To be honest, I've never measured to within a fraction of an inch (or cm, being in a metric-based country) I've never even thought about...jelquing, is it? or anything like that. Admittedly I do pump it for a while before any photography happens, but that's about it...and mostly because I know a lot of people appreciate the sight of precum *grin*

    I dunno, I guess I'm happy with what I have, and equally I don't want to scare off any prospective partners by having TOO much...No offence to anyone thusly sized, but I see a photo of a 10 or 12-incher, and I can't help thinking, how do you do anything with that without hurting your partner?

    Edit: Please ignore the irony of this post, in that I have my measurements stated in my signature... :D
