Penis size

I can’t do better than to quote Shere Hite, author the groundbreaking Hite Report that made such a huge impact in 70s.

I watched the pilot of Hung yesterday (HBO) and the contrasts with Secret Diary of a Call Girl are interesting – but that’s a topic for another time. The story is about a guy in grave financial circumstances who decides to try to make a living from his extraordinarily large penis. A couple of scenes implied (once again – yawn) that his big dick made a woman’s orgasm more likely.

There’s no evidence for this, folks. Shere Hite has actually done massive research with real women.

From The Shere Hite Reader (2006)

“It seems that young men in their twenties today are still as worried about penis size as men have been for a long time…although this cliché [that there is a direct relationship between the size of the penis and the woman’s orgasm] was overturned in the 1960’s, it seems to have made a dramatic comeback. Discussions of the drug Viagra have added to the presumption on the part of the very young that ‘everyone knows’ a man should have ‘a big hard one’. Many young men also have a prejudice against [clitoral] stimulation with their female partners (‘less manly than doing it to her with your dick’). As one puts it, ‘I understand that some women cannot reach orgasm with penetration, but I still want to try to make them happy.’ In what he thinks is an understanding statement, by his choice of words he has already put any female partner he might have on the defensive! First, he implies that only ‘some women’ have this ‘lack of capacity,’ thus they are ‘incapable,’ ‘not like the other,’ and so on. In other words, they are ‘semifailures’ and ‘not as good as’ the others.

“Rather than accept the reality of how most women reach orgasm, being happy about the variety and spontaneity offered, sharing that and changing the shape of ‘sex,’ some men worry about whether or not they have the ‘right’ penis size, that is, ‘Whether or not I am big enough.’ The supposition is, ‘I’m sure that if I were big enough, she would have orgasm during penetration – just like in the porno movies!’ Is it penis size such men are worried about, or do they feel a fear of learning the ‘ins-and-outs’ of clitoral stimulation…”

“An insistence on focusing on erection does a terrible disservice to both men and owmen. Any man who finds himself thinking something like this, should ask himself if he believes that he has been brainwashed by imposed beliefs about ‘having a hard penis’ – or is he really speaking about his own pleasure in feeling excited when he has an erection. Feeling the pleasure of one’s own body is clearly the right of every human being; being brainwashed by slogans that are not good for you or your partner is another matter altogether.”

Wow, that’s kind of mind blowing if you let it sink in. Men in locker rooms all over the world fully worrying about the size of their dicks. Men losing some of the pure pleasure of their hard-ons cause they’re freaked that they might give women more orgasms if it were bigger. What a scam. Nothing sells like anxiety, does it? Women buying crap cause they’re sure they’re not sexy the way they are, men buying crap to get bigger harder dicks when that’s not the primary thing for women.

And yes, lots of women like how large dicks look and feel. The point is that it’s been blown (haha) WAY out of proportion.
