I think that the most interesting posts on this forum are about our childhood experiences, back when we as men were just learning about the magic of these dangling things between our legs. So, I'm going to start a new thread about this topic. Hopefully others will share as well. Coming to this forum, I am reminded of the fact that there was a time when I actually had a big penis. I attended a small Catholic school where another boy and I used to compare penis size in the bathroom. It was no big deal. We were about 9 or 10. While with a group of boys, after we used the urinals, or shortly before, he'd just pull his penis out, get a boner, and show it to people. I remember once he pulled it out and started rubbing his head and saying, "It feels funny when you do this." Looking back, what was extraordinary was that none of us batted an eye. I just kind of looked at him and thought, "Uh, yeah... and?..." Later, he and I would both take our penises out while in the bathroom. We'd both stand there with our erections in our hands, and just talk about it, no big deal. He told me I had a big penis. And, at this point, I did because I developed faster than the other boys. I remember one day there were about five of us in the bathroom. My friend told a classmate about how big my penis was, so they asked me to show it. I took it out but it didn't look big because I didn't have an erection. Then one of my friends said to me, "Just think of that girl you like...." Then he gave me the advice that if I put my penis under cold water I would get an erection. So, I tried that, and it didn't work. And then I got an erection. I even remember, oddly, taking out my balls to show them off. My friend said, "Your balls are bigger than my dad's!" An odd comment in retrospect, but that is seriously what he said. Anyway, there's not much conclusive about these stories, obviously. I think that what is interesting, though, is how completely innocent these situations were. As boys, as pre-teens, we had a playful, fun view of our penises that is often lost when we get older. I wonder why this is.
