So glad that the men I know have other value systems in place and are not so shallow.

Same here. Don't believe everything you read. And most importantly, stop stereotyping.

Guys always exaggerate about the one that got away. Oh, never mind. I thought I was on a fishing thread.

How big someone is hung has nothing to do with how good they are in bed. I've had big ones. I've had small ones. I've had guys who were unbelievably great at sex, and some that were really lousy at it... And size just doesn't have anything to do with it.

I'd really, really, really like to know.... I have my hunches but I'll reserve them and let you tell me... although I'm not holding my breath!! btw the same question goes out to your troll friends.... unless you are all one and the same, then it just goes out to you (and your pseudonyms)

Have fun in sex starts to choose the appropriate cock & focusing on the black skin guys which is an element of suspense itself , and if not available in a timely manner, you must search for holders of the long size & full of cock's via fact-vision inside toilets, I'm sure you will be frozen your views towards the appropriate volume and the tool, which you dream and mine as well .. and cuz i am pure bottom that why mine is too small ,and i kept it as a belly finger and piss....

Earl. You just have not had the right man. I know by your comet it is not for you at this time. I will check back with you later. Please enjoy the thought of just having the tip in.

Half the gay population has absolutely zero interest in anyone's size. The other half has just about the same interest as the heterosexual males have, and that their female wives/girlfriends/etc.

I have always heard that it's more how you use it, and what kind of heart and brain are attached to it, then the size.

Silly topic.

Another obvious clue that the troll is posting under more than one name is a reply, "Spot on." or "Interesting, Thanks for posting."

I agree with both Fa-Foxy's post #6, and with yours. I was quite active prior to meeting my husband, and I never considered the size to be that relevant. Of course I encountered many below average, average, and above average sizes, but the person and his personality and love-making expertise were the important aspects. People talked a lot about size queens, but I never knew anyone who actually gave that much importance to size, other than for the sake of comedy. In short, size is highly over-rated by those not "in the know" regarding love-making.

I believe internet sites have amplified some of this. There is something about creating an ad for yourself which is cold, describing oneself, putting yourself and others into categories, etc.; It leaves out chemistry. I like the hunt or even just the cruise. However, I have friends who use the internet sites effectively.

On a different note: Losing weight can increase penis size up to an inch. Dependent on your current weight.

I don't think that's true, I think gay and str8 men are obsessed with their own and others' size. The exceptions are rare.

If that is the case, you are hanging with too much "bar trash" and not enough people with functioning brains.
