    yesterday I was talking about buying a new LCD TV with my kids and girlfriend, I was weighing up the options of 37 or 40 inches. My girlfriend said, with a naughty grin, "I think eight inches is about perfect", I replied (out of earshot of my kids) "well, you know i'd love to be able to oblige", she looked puzzled and said "you must be about eight inches" which was a bit of a surprise. This makes me wonder if in the past, she's had other guys do a lot of exagerating. Either way, I didn't tell her that actually, I can't make it register as over 7" without using dodgy measuring techniques, like measuring along the bottom or bone pressing or....

    Wouldn't want her to know quite how obsessed with dick size I am would I?, still, her 'rounding up' gave me an instant semi and possibly helped make that night's fuck one of the best i've ever had :)

    I slept with a very experienced girl (read...frat guys had a lot of not-so-nice things to say about her) and she asked me how long I was, and her reply was "Really? I would've sworn it was more than that."

    So I know where you're coming from. I don't know whether it's chicken or egg to guys' exaggerating to try and seem big.

    My hand is exactly 7.5 inches from the tip of my middle finger to the line on my wrist. When gripping something my palm is just under 3-1/2" wide and when I wrap my hand around something, my index finger just touches my thumb at 6". I was in my late 20's when I figured that out. Since then, I've known almost exactly how big every cock was I've touched within a half inch. When in doubt I round up, would never want to say a man is smaller than he really is in error. I'm pretty good at eyeballing too (or so I've been told). LOL

    I get emails all the time from guys asking me to size up their penis, not as many as I used to though... Most the time my response is for them to not ask a question unless they are prepared to hear the answer. Had a brief argument with a guy in chat recently trying to tell me that he was over 10, ain't no way he was over 7.5, I "guessed 8" and he argued he was bigger, he wasn't - I was lookin' at the proof.

    And NO that was not an invitation for all the boys to have me estimate the size of their cocks from their photos.

    I think most women's ability to estimate is skewed by most guys inclination to exaggerate.

    I think most guys' inclination to exaggerate is caused by women's disability to estimate.

    my wife cant estimate either. but not just her, i have found alot of girls cant estimate size, especially girth. just the other day the subject of measuring dicks came up and my wife asked my size and when i told her she said that the length sounded right but that there was no way i was that thick, and she guessed two inches less in circumference. So of course i had to break out a tape measure and let her find out for herself. I was right, she was wrong, but we sure had some fun discovering that, and after!

    "How big is it?"
    "8 inches"
    "Is that it?" (said not in a 'I like bigger' way but in a 'I thought it was bigger' way)

    Another girl said it was 9.5" and one even said 13" (lol). And one 'girl' (not sure if it was, this was over online chat) said it was "barely average".

    So fakers aside, girls don't know how to judge size. Although its funny that a recent survey said they have more capacity for spatial awareness than men. Maybe they're getting lied to so much its affecting their brains.

    I had a friend of mine recently tell me the guy she was just with was "easily 4.5 inches across." Aside from that being absolutely ridiculous, since he'd be over a foot in circumference, but she had just said that his base was as wide as five of her finger-widths. This girl weighs a buck-ten in a wet sweater.

    The women are probably laughing their asses off at this thread. Simply put, cocks are small, average, large and extra large. We all know what large and x large is if we see it. What makes you think women wouldn't know the difference. In fact, they probably seen more adult cocks than we have. Like most straight guys, the only time I have seen men with hard-ons was in porn movies. Women, on the other hand, have touched, sucked and fucked them. Now, who really knows about size? I think women are better judges, and I think they know which ones feels the best for them.

    I bet I can estimate any cock better than the guy attached to the cock can estimate my boob size...

    Vastly over-estimating it is the easy option.

    Imagine the hissy fit they'd have to put up with if they said it looked 6 inches.
