Guys, It’s Your Turn to Talk

*************************************

I want to dedicate this post to Tracy Fulks. It happens to be Tracy’s birthday today. Happy Birthday, Tracy!!! I wanted to write about penis size on your birthday. I want to make you proud. Tracy, I love you. You’re beautiful, inside and out. I hope you like this post in your honor.

Be sure to send some wishes her way!

***********************************

After my boobs post, I had a request for a post on penis size from my friend Rich. Per your request, and because you probably didn’t think I’d follow through on this, I will write your post.

Now, my first response to Rich was, “I don’t have a penis, so I am not ‘qualified’ write such a post.” Uh huh. I’m so clever, huh?

Suffice it to say, Rich did not provide any guidelines, nor have I been approached in a Barnes & Noble with penis jokes. I know, imagine that? But I have learned recently this fact from extensive research (on Google), and this is FACT: the average straight man has seen about 3.2 penises in his life. Really?

Then, I thought a little more about it, and thought just maybe, Rich was hoping for a forum in which to discuss penis size. When I blogged about boobies, it was a regular breast fest over here. I delighted in how open we all could be, talking about the issues that large-breasted woman have, and even revealing our bra sizes. Perhaps, this is what you have in mind…Women, we can chime in, or perhaps, just listen. We are good listeners.

I was especially moved by the gentlemen who joined in the boobs discussion to remark how much they like breasts, clearly respectful of them, their form, their function, their beauty, their sensuality…oh…I’m supposed to write about penis size. Where was I?

Yes…I was fascinated by one commenter who suggested that men would never gather in a group to talk about their packages, as the women here on my blog so freely discussed their ta-tas. What do you think, guys? Are you gathering your thoughts right now? Did I hear a pin drop? So, have you seen any good movies lately?

Let’s just look at the evidence before us, shall we? Maybe this will help ease the discussion. Condoms are a one-size-fits-all, right? No? Perhaps, this is the reason for the spray-on condom. Did you ever hear of that one?

What about this case study? Recall the Olympics last summer when U.S. Rower, Henrik Rummel, accepted his bronze on the podium with what everyone assumed was a raging hard on. He was excited about the bronze, as he should be.

Here’s some video on the story.

If you didn’t watch the video, all you need to know is that Henrik denies that it is a boner. He simply states, “I don’t know why it ended up in that position but there you go.” So, this could be a starting off point for your discussion, how the twigs and berries shift. I’m sorry, I know nothing about this.

And now, some trivia. Did you know that back in the day, when the Olympics began in Greece, the competitors were naked? FACT. Now this certainly must have settled any possible confusion about penis size.

Imagine, wrestling.

Or…

Oops! How did this get in here? I meant to take this one out…

But let’s face it, if men ran around naked in the Olympics or otherwise, I’m sure we wouldn’t get any work done. And, of course, civilization would decline swiftly and come to a screeching halt.

Let’s just say that after such a thorough examination, penises come in all different sizes. That said, size doesn’t matter. Not one bit. Honestly, this shouldn’t matter to your partner, and if it does, he/she is not the one for you. This much is true.

Now, discuss away….1-2-3-…Go!

    1. Okay, make me another one who’s skeptical of the 3.2 penis sightings in a lifetime. Judging by my oldest, who now refuses to shower at my husband’s gym because there are too many “old, naked men there”, I’d assume that number is much higher. Me thinks those surveyed are lying.

      Great post! As for naked sports? Wrestling is intimate enough as it is. No need to get resistant staph aureus infections in places the sun doesn’t normally shine…

      1. Carrie, I’m so flattered you say this is a great post, coming from a doctor and all. I imagine if you belong to a gym it’s inevitable that you see a penis or two, maybe even four!! Wrestling must be the most intimate sport on the planet, and for the reasons you stated!

  1. Hahahaha! The pictures are too funny. Wrestling is so out there, isn’t it? My boyfriend in college used to wrestle, I called his uniform, a Weiner suit, for obvious reasons. It’s the most Weiner-ish sport a man can engage in.

  2. 3.2? you mean today? when i first saw 3.2 i thought you were going to say that it was the revised average penis size, which would be very disappointing.

    i wonder what women think about when meeting a guy and eventually (after, like, 10 dates?) consider having sex with a guy. do you have any anticipation? wondering like you’re about to open a christmas present? i wonder what it’s like? how big? i’m sure there have to be women who think about that, but how many women here?

    next, tracy’s, birthday. she shares a birthday with my favorite porn star. silvia saint. that’s two hot women on the same day.

    that picture of the swimmer is very unfortunate, very much when you add that facial expression. sure looks like he’s enjoying himself.

    back to 3.2, after spending many years in locker rooms before and after football and hockey games, there were plenty to see whether you wanted to or not. years later, i would occasionally end up in situations in which there were “parts” from both teams visible, but the sports played were much different.

    as for the buy with the alleged erection on the medal stand, i must admit to a personal issue that relates but very slightly. when i go into changing rooms in clothing stores, that happens to me when i undress. not necessarily at home, but i think i’ve watched too many videos of couples who switched on the camera in the changing room, and i can’t help but imagine such fun when i’m in there, so then – schwiiinnnggg!!!

    1. Rich,
      I hope this didn’t disappoint! I can feel you’d really like to talk about this. 3.2 is, of course, one source, one that is obviously lying, or just a joke. Ha ha.

      I’m sure it must cross a woman’s mind, but how much important, it’s hard to say. I think, truly, most women don’t care that much. It’s just one of many things that make her guy special. It’s just one component. Of course, there may be other opinions….For me, the emotional connection is highest on the list.

      I hope Tracy liked it. I’m sure you’ll be pleased to hear that!

      The picture is for the ladies to reward them for reading. Sorry!

      Maybe your changing room scenario is like the guy on the podium, emotionally charged.

      1. i’m on board with all of that, no argument. and i appreciate that you’d tackle such a subject. i’m sure when it all is said and done, women, like men, are mainly interested in a nice person who doesn’t call them “idiot” and “stupid” like i had for a long time.

      2. Thanks! And, you’re welcome? I think penis size is all about the male ego. The sexual act involves more just the penis. You should read Jackie’s comment. It’s a good one! I wonder if men had penises on the outside, you know the way women do with their breasts, if it would less of a big deal. I’m not saying it’s a big deal to you, of course.

      3. that might change things, if it was more visible. i guess at the beach it’s a leeetle visible but not nearly as much. imagine if a penis were in the same place as boobs. wow that’d be weird, but then if we never saw boobs before and suddenly saw them, that would be weird too.

  4. Oooh Amy you are all excited now that I am commenting on an issue which stands out on most men πŸ˜‰ Personally, I have had a chat with my little fellow about what to say and we reckon that we are both quite happy with what we have got and I am not interested in other men. I think it’s more a female issue as I have had relationships in the distant past, and I mean distant, where I have met women with, as you say, their ta-tas range from the size of drinking straws to Carlsbad Caverns πŸ˜‰ So for me it’s not a problem. All I need now is a woman friend for my little fellow play with πŸ˜€ Big hug. Ralph x

I hope you find a woman friend soon. I still she’s around the corner from you. Have you been to the bakery lately? Perhaps, she’s there. I’m putting out my feelers for you..

      1. Even though I was in a boy’s only boarding school for years and the British Army it was never discussed and I don’t remember even talking about penises. The main topic was women, conquests and did the next man have a big sister. πŸ˜€

        I expect the younger generation talk about it more because of the ease of access to porn on the internet.

      2. Ralph, I think there’s a completely different mind set with younger generations about sex and relationships. It’s different, that much I can say with confidence. Modesty is hard to come by. I’m probably old fashioned compared to today’s generation of youth.

  5. Amy,
    I have learned through Seinfeld, which, let’s admit it, is a valuable resource when it comes to the daily nothings of our lives, that men do indeed flock together and discuss interesting topics such as the penis. As a straight man, I have seen many, many peens in my lifetime, some very large, some average, and some I must have stared too long at. Now, what’s the question again? Are we speaking sizes? I’d like to have women’s feedback on the size of peens. I’m serious. Let it all hang out: is size important? Is bigger better? I’m all eyes.

    1. Le Clown,
      Really? Men sit around and talk about the penis? 3.2, of course, must be a joke, although some people won’t admit to staring so freely. Ha ha. Size is only one factor. I’ll agree with this feedback…the man is only part of the equation and is not the only one doing the “work.” There are other parts involved, to include but not limited, hands, tongue…not to mention, the emotional component which is most important!

  7. Ok Amy, I am going to be brave and comment on the size and if it matters. Personally I have had quite large and kind of small, and I have to admit size for me does not matter. With some women maybe it does, but the penis does not do all the work. There are always fingers, tongue, lips. now put them all together and you get one grand experience. As for the penis, I think it is more for the man’s ego then anything. If a man knows what he is doing with the rest of his body the woman is a happy camper. Then the man is happy because after all, if the woman is bored he might get off, once, but that’s about it. Now what is the fun in that? haha! Happy Birthday Tracy!!!

    1. What a brave, and inspired comment, Jackie! Rich should read this. Maybe he will….Your are absolutely right on with this. I think size is typically about a man’s ego. The ironic thing is women don’t care all that much. I think typically not. Because if the other elements are in place and a man is thinking about his partner, then it is a satisfying experience. Thanks for weighing in.

  8. Amy,
    It seems I’m late to the penis party, and your post has inspired some well thought-out comments!
    I don’t even know how to add to the conversation except to say that the time I’ve spent at beaches and resorts where people don’t wear clothes has had the effect of reducing penises and boobs to being just appendages. It’s kind of freeing really.
    I guess the 3.2 statistic wouldn’t apply here…

      You’re never to late for my party! I haven’t been to many nude beaches, but I’m sure it would that effect. Once I went to a nude beach for gay men, and well, I was ignored completely. I was thinking what about me? Well, just kidding. I feel they become appendages when I watch dance when they’re nude. It becomes beside the point, plus an appreciation of the human form.
      That 3.2 stat is, uh, comical.

  14. I must weigh in here. I am not shallow but sometimes size does matter. I was in a relationship and while doing the deed, I swear I did not realize he had even entered the tunnel. Someone mentioned the motion of the ocean..Well, There was no ocean nor boat. Yes, that’s how small it was. I tried to tell myself the rest of the relationship would have worked fine. I’m actually glad the whole thing ended.

    1. I appreciate you weighing in. This has never happened to me, so I can’t comment about it specifically. I think a satisfying sexual relationship is important, so that if it’s not there then something is missing. It sounds like it was a big factor in the end of the relationship. I’m not too surprised it didn’t work out. Thanks for sharing.
