Hands up how many girls (and some guys) have received a message like this over the years... “Hey, baby. I've got a raging ten inch cock all for you...”
Yep. Thought so. Me too. Heaps.
Beyond the obvious response of “Go away, idiot” that I have when I get these sorts of messages (Seriously, have you ever thought of just saying “Hello”?) there are a few more things I'd like to point out, just in case you're the sort of person who brags like this.
- No. Actually you probably don't. Let me give you a little breakdown in mathematics. Ten inches converts to 25.4 centimetres. To put that into a visual scale you may find easier, a two litre bottle of milk is just under ten inches long. A 1.25 litre coke bottle is just over ten inches. Two and a half tins of spaghetti stacked on top of each other is about ten inches... So, now we've established exactly how long ten inches is (it practically comes to my knees), we can probably establish that yeah, you don't have one.
- According to the Kinsey Institute the average penis size is around five to six and a half inches, and several other surveys by condom companies and other sex-based companies say very similar. That doesn't mean there aren't some monster cocks walking around the place, it just means it's not particularly common and, again with the maths, considering how many people claim they have one... Well it just doesn't add up.
- I know a couple of guys who really have got ten inch (or close to) penises and none of them go around announcing it in every conversation, message, and text. They just don't. Why? Well I asked one of them and he said, quite simply, “Because it's irrelevant” and, for the most part, he is absolutely right. The thing is, if a woman wants a man with a big penis and you tell her you have one and it turns out you're full of shit and are actually closer to the average size, she probably won't have sex with you. This is because not only are you not what she is looking for, you've also just outed yourself as a liar and that's not particularly conducive to getting laid. I will mention that my friend also said that, if it gets to the stage of a conversation or date where they may end up having sex, he does mention it. Not to brag, but to inform. And that takes me to my next point.
- And this here is the kicker and one to remember, a lot of women actually don't like them that big at all. It doesn't matter what porn has told you. It doesn't matter what your mates say in the bar. A lot of women, when confronted with a very large penis, back off and think “No WAY is that going inside me”.The thing is, the average vagina when aroused (yep, we grow too, guys) is only about 4.75 inches long (do the maths) and, just in case you didn't know, is topped off with a barrier called the cervix. While some women don't mind their cervix being pushed heavily against in sex, quite a few find it rather painful and, although a vagina can increase in width by about 200% (hello babies), a very thick penis can cause quite a lot of discomfort. Even with lots of lube. Most guys I know with larger penises have to really learn and refine their technique so they don't cause pain or discomfort.
Now before the guys with the actual big cocks jump all over me for dissing them, I'm not. I personally love a super cock. But, after surveying some of my girlfriends and asking their opinions on the “perfect” penis size for them here are just a few of the responses I got.
Trust me, guys. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being of average size. Nothing! If a girl likes you enough to want to see you naked and put your bits inside her bits then you've won half the battle anyway! And if you think good sex is purely down to penis size and penetration then you're probably not particularly good in the sack anyway. Mouths, hands, eyes, body language, words ... these are all part of what will make you a great lay. So stop stressing. Stop bragging. We actually don't care all that much, and we're all different.
Work on being a nice, respectful, fun person, and all the rest will fall into place.
