Happy 2005 everybody!

The topic called my attention because of that myth of men having an small member use to have big cars or big posetions. In my case I do not own anything big like a car or something, probably because I am 6,3 and my member I think is just fine. To make the experiment I would have to cut it out to see if my vision of the world changes. Interesting, no?

Do you own big things because of your small stuff and viceversa? :rolleyes:

I think you should try your experiment and post back with the results. Just no pictures, I beg of you.

The easiest way to kill this thread is this:
Don't post anything else!

Just sit back and watch mymemory try to keep it alive.

I do agree with the notion that those gentlemen with huge anythings from automobiles to televisions are using them to make up for some other shortcomings.

Me, I am 6' 3" as well, I have a 12" television and drive a Mini Cooper.

Well, good point, I do not have a G5 instead I have a 12" PB (but with a 20" display).

Are we talking about possessions here?

Luke, use the edit button, it will guide when others have pointed things out.

P.S.

this holds true for me as well, I just get offended when people are condescending about it. Hope I didn't come across that way, my grammar lacks as well.

12" is quite a bit, and 20" is unbelievable... I can't imagine how anyone could use a 30"...

Historically....

The average penis size has actually increased, with perceived nationalities with smaller penises actually getting bigger too. This is partly due to a change in diet and lifestyle (for example, Asias who were typically concidered smaller are now closer to the average due to a more western diet)

It has been reported that in the 60's the average length was around 5.8 inches for men aged between 18-25. In the late 90's a report indicated the 18-25 age group averaged 6.2 inches.

Now, as big cars and TV's have gotten cheaper, more people have them, not to say that there is a correlation between reductions in cost of living and penises!

Me, I am just above the reported average and happy with what I have to offer. If someone is disappointed in my size, well too bad, I am not able to 'supply' any more than that...

Super-size me...
There's more to it than meets the eye.

Sigh. I thought I was going to learn a few new tricks to try on the wife. Not about somebody wanting to cut their wanker off. :(


edit: Oh, it's penises and posessions!! I thought it was penises and positions! Silly me :)

double edit: Sorry to the British out there. I saw the term "wanker out there, and assumed it meant penis. Sorry :D

I wanted to stay away from this thread. I really did. But I don't want to see naive young members like our beloved Blue misled into dating men she sees simply because they're cramming fast food into their mouths, or refusing to date men who own an Aston Martin.

So, after spending time donning my haz-mat suit, I have a few things to say. Very few, actually, since it's such a pain to type with these big gloves on.

First, the "men who drive big expensive cars are poorly equipped" theory falls into the same category as the "really attractive men are all gay" category: jealous men say something disparaging about someone who has something they covet (money, looks, whatever). Yes, some men who drive Bentleys are physically compatible with small rodents, and some men who are stunningly attractive are gay (a good thing, from the point of view of our gay members, I'm sure!).

** ponders rewriting "gay members" given context of thread, decides not to do so **

But just as many men who have nice toys are very well-equipped, just as many ugly men are gay, etc. I strongly doubt penis size influences purchasing decisions when it comes to items not typically sold via spam email.

Of course, this applies to women as well - large breasted women aren't any dumber than others, etc.

Of course, these size things are more important to men, as we have no freaking idea how we stack up against others (gay men have a slight edge here). Women have always known how they compare to other women. It's difficult to hide. Men, though, know nothing about it. Showering in gym isn't educational, because, not only can you not look lest you be labeled in a category not conducive to pleasant days at school, but anything you'd see wouldn't be in a mission-ready state. So we don't know. And, since men are truly at least as insecure as women, we worry. The doctors who can eventually successfully perform penis-enhancement surgery will make breast-enhancing plastic surgeons look like starving artists.

Of course, what's so ridiculous about all this is that women don't really care. Or, rather, there's no one good size. Just as women obsess about breast size even though men's preferences vary enormously - any size will be the preferred size of some percentage of men - women have their preferences, but they aren't all the same. And, unlike breasts, there is a physical compatibility issue with penis size which means that anyone far outside the normal range will not be satisfying to most partners. It is definitely at least as possible to be too well equipped as it is to be not equipped well enough.

** ponders adding "believe me, I know", decides against it **

So: possessions have nothing to do with penis size (unless they've been purchased as the result of a successful porn career), and, while size matters, it's impossible to say in what way except in a given relationship.

Now, excuse me, I need to get out of this damn suit.

While I'm still wearing that suit:

Funny - I thought it was a British term. No, wait, it is a British term, isn't it? But meaning "jerk" or "poor bloke" or something, right?

And I'd never heard of it as a penis term, but, as with breasts, you could put just about anything in that position in the sentence and know what was meant.

I just didn't know it was used as a term for penis... it sounded odd that's all.

I guess it's like 'fanny' though...
