    What a Great Experience this group has become. The kinship in Brotherhood. There is such a diverse range of topics. This is the place we can be as open as we want to be... Everyone is welcome to join, but it is not a place to Cruise. It's for sharing sexual questions and comments among men.

    Men - Most men are not happy with their penis size and wish they were bigger or thicker. I am just 7 inches erect and wish I was bigger even though according to studies 5 - 7 inches is average.

    Do you think that most men exaggerate on their penis size in polls? And if so why?

    Did you ever realize that you 'guys' do this to each other? You put the pressure on yourselves. Only guys care about how big their penis is and use the size as some form of validation or measure of 'manly-ness'. Why are you so concerned with the size?? and yet no mention of technique...which is far more important than the size of the flesh hanging between your legs.

    I'm a woman and I can tell you that the bigger penis is, the less likely he will be a good lover, why? because guys think a bigger penis means better and they don't try as hard to please. Be happy with what you have, cause no matter what any other man has out there, it's not going to change what you have, ever.

    You got it - the penis size issue is primarily an issue among men. The penis -- especially when erect -- can be a dominance symbol and is used to intimidate the same as bicep size, income level and car horsepower, providing that the a particular object is larger than the corresponding one of the other guy. It's all about dominance and self-satisfaction and not really about sex at all most of the time.

    No because polls are anonymous. However, if my name was somehow connected to my poll response I'd lie like hell.
    Torcal replied to elle0317's response:
    There is one exceptional class of people having a different view: Gay men care a LOT about penis size. And there are a LOT of gay/bi "happily married" men out there dallying around locker rooms, gyms, public parks and gay bars.
    elle0317 replied to Torcal's response:
    Yes, there will always be shallow and misguided people (men and women) out there, I won't deny that.
    karlutley responded:
    do not exaggerate my size on line, or to buddies or a girl. My penis is 5.5 inches. That is just me and there is nothing to be ashamed of.
    hairyd responded:
    On polls No; they may not know their correct size. Therefore enter a smaller size.
    I have had lot of new friends tell me a larger size. But later at the gym, pool, golf club, camping or their homes. The full penis would be hanging to be viewed. It best to always tell the truth; or not say anything.
    elle0317 replied to hairyd's response:
    Maybe they were growers? Meaning their penis gets bigger as they become aroused.
    gq12 replied to Torcal's response:
    Not to stereotype or anything!!!
    hairyd replied to elle0317's response:
    Elle, yes we know men are growers. But also know that because of the view of the picture of a pretty female, morning wood, hot showers, or a warm breezy. Men will have a full erection in view of others ....
    elle0317 replied to hairyd's response:
    Wow, talk about a hair-trigger....

    I keep getting these adds in the mail about twice a month take this new exotic pill and or salve to apply to yopur penis and in two three months it will grow to 3 and half inches and get bigger and fatter, pictures come along with the articles, some of these men had penis that measured 9 inches looked like a baseball bat, add reads have Penis as hard as steel every night have several sex incounters per night feel young again. A urologist I went to informed me a lot of these companies making these claims are being sued for false adds, I said what about pictures of thes well endowed men , he said there are men who are well endowed but they are hired by these companies and photographed when having a erection.. I only have 4 and half when erect but my wife is satisfied doesnt want anymore a big penis she says would be painful

    You have a keeper there, however I understand that we are being bombarded with these ads. , mags, radio, newspapers, and television and don't get me started on the internet.
    It simply boils down to money, as someone once said " follow the money "
    Advertisers play to our perceived weaknesses and place a miracle product on the market which will work miracles. Look at the guy in the Enzyte commercials, ole Bob. Bob is a happy Santa because he used Enzyte.
    There are NO potions , pills or herbal remedies.
    Just be happy that your equipment is in good working order and your just as good as ole Bob, and your wife is as well.
