I think the article was seeking to debunk the myth (in the minds of many men) that having a big penis = definite sexual success, ability to satisfy women. Also, the myth that penises are too small (when in fact they're average).


Anyways...Speaking of female nether regions, shaven and non...when exactly _did_ the penchant for shaved ones in pornography arise? (i.e., last five, ten yrs?) I know it's all the rage nowadays...but in the 70s, wasn't a full bush the "norm" in porn films?

Full bush was definitely the norm in the 70s. Trimmed seems to have been popular in the 80s, not shaved but trimmed so it lays close. I don't know about the early 90s, because it's not old enough for people to consider "vintage" so there's not a big web presence (and I was a little too young to see it directly). The last 10 years or so, it has gone from usually being a brazillian wax (only a small patch of trimmed hair in the front, sometimes shaped into a heart, etc), to the majority of young women in the porns being totally shaved.

ETA: there is a great site that can be found by googleing "playboy covers" that has every cover from every playboy ever published, sorted by date. It is a fairly good way to track the changing trends in pornography in the last 50 years or so.

I have my own ways of dealing with such things. He sent me a digital photo of it. I edited the photo to make it larger and thicker and sent it to his home email with a note saying "when you can offer me this, then I MIGHT be interested".

I would have reported him for sexual harassment.
Round here we have way more inventive ways of stopping that sort of thing (and previous experience means I don't have any confidence in the official route). I made my team leader aware of the situation in case the humiliation tactic failed.

In the end, they were disgusted, and it was decided that no matter how big you are, you still have to not be a jackass to get a woman to like you.

That sounds an episode of Just Shoot Me where it was Finch who had a giant penis and tried, unsuccessfully, to get dates using that fact. That was a hilarious episode.

I've found that the long slow licks of your avatar aren't nearly as popular as short rapid licks or tongue circles.

Well, two things...
First, I don't think that being bigger would help get girlfriends as I imagine if you've gotten to the point that they can know what size it is, you've already gotten pretty far... it might help retention value, but initial attractiveness boost I just don't see...

Also, simply because someone in a relationship, especially marriage, is not willing to say to a counselor (ESPECIALLY one of the opposite gender) that they wish their partner had a more... sexually well-performing form... doesn't mean they never think or feel it. It would be a rather shameful thing to admit afterall. Especially for a woman (since men are supposed to be fixated on sex it would be considered more acceptable for them to make a similar comment about their wife... they'd still be bad, but just living up to the gender stereotype.)

I had a longer post with a similar sentiment, but I felt it was too long for the subject matter. (I made a bad pun, and by-george I liked it.)

Anyways, regarding the idea that a longer penis won't help you get dates, I think this was covered very nicely in a comedy show, I believe it may have been Family Guy. A bunch of male friends discovered that another male friend had an abnormally large penis. He attempted to get dates by telling ladies he had a large penis. In the end, they were disgusted, and it was decided that no matter how big you are, you still have to not be a jackass to get a woman to like you.

However, I agree that it's just not true that no women anywhere cares about the size of their partner's penis. That's like saying no man cares about breast size. I know I don't really care how big they are, but some men refuse to have anything but a large-breasted woman.

That's not to say that surgery should be done just because of this.

There was a Family Guy about penis size, but it didn't take that storyline. Peter, the dad, always beat Chris, his son, at everything - basketball, magic tricks, trying to balance everything under the sun on their heads...Peter was so competitive that he NFBSKed up Chris' potential game-winning basketball shot by shouting "Your mother and I are getting a divorce!"

However, he soon noticed that Chris is...shall we say, well-endowed, and he starts freaking out. He even turns cold to Chris and starts taking up other means of compensating, including buying a large, phallus-shaped sports car, joining an association of gun nuts (all of whom have small penises) and trying to keep Chris from drinking milk after Lois, his wife, tells Chris that it will make him "big and strong." However, he comes around and realizes he was being an idiot, pointing out that Chris' endowment was a blessing, not a curse.

During the episode, Lois tries to comfort Peter by telling him, "I care as much about the size of your penis as you care about the size of my breasts!" Needless to say, this didn't help at all. The last line of the episode was Chris pointing out the ironic hilarity in that his father's name was, in fact, Peter.

I imagine there was a show that detailed the storyline you mentioned; I just don't know what it is, and as an avid Family Guy fan, I felt the need to bring this story up, since it's semi-relevant.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again (because I still find it funny):
Women don't care what size a man's penis is.
Unless it's inside them.

And to steal from Drew Carrey, "Popcorn comes in 4 sizes: Small, Medium, Large, and my dick."
