Ah, the dreaded question that's been haunting mankind since the dawn of time: Does penis size matter? Some say it does, some say it doesn't. And women have certainly sounded off on this subject once or twice. Then there are the men who have the size part down, you know, the ones who are typically revered by society— isn't that where the term "penis envy" came from, after all?
Sure, I know that bigger is NOT always better — but do guys know that? To them, is it really always a good thing to have a massive penis? Do all people in today's world just assume when that's your claim to fame, you're walking on water?
After interviewing several men who are packing a lot down there, I uncovered the truth: not everyone is super jazzed about their, um, non-shortcomings. In fact, apparently it can be a total drag. That's right, contrary to popular belief, not all guys love having a big penis.
Check out what these guys had to say about living with a big penis, and how at times it can trip them up (not literally... at least I don't think!).
1. Steve, 28
You don't really know you have one until the first girl you have sex with is like 'Oh, yeah, OK, that's big' or something along those lines. And you don't really believe it until future girls continuously makes a comment about it. Then it gets to a point where you're kind of disappointed when they don't notice.
2. Chris, 34
The best thing is you never, EVER worry if it's big enough, which for guys is pretty much the best thing to never have to worry about.
3. Logan, 27
You don't feel the need to have a nice car or buy expensive clothes. You can wear gym clothes and drive a Saturn for life. Who cares, right? You have a big dick.
4. Ben, 31
I've had girls assume I was a man whore just because I have a big penis. Like, that means I have sex a lot more. They're immediately suspicious, and it can almost become a turn off to them.
5. Alan, 42
There's when it drops into the toilet [laughs]. That's never not gross. Condoms are never quite right, either — not even Magnums. Half the time I have to hold it to keep it in place, and that really takes away from a lot of positions.
6. Jason, 25
It's fantastic. That's really all there is to it.
7. Adam, 29
It definitely comes with some baggage. Girls will use your size as an excuse to get out of things, and disguise it as sort of back-handed compliment. If it's a one-night thing, that's usually to get out of morning sex. 'You're just so big, I'm sore. Can we do it later?'
8. Dave, 34
You get a lot less anal or deep throating, and you'll even run into the occasional girl who you're too big for in general. And you get dumped. I guess if you gotta get dumped for something, though...
