Contrary to what all the internet scams say, bigger isn't always better. I am of above average size and must be careful not to cause pain for my girlfriends. My current GF appears to be especially sensitive and I must be very careful not to goo in too deep as this hurts her. Since I have to think about this, it takes some of the enjoyment away for me. Are there any kinds of spacers or pads that I can put around it that limit the depth of penetration. Certain positions such as missionary with her legs together seem to help a lot but I would like to be able to do any position without having to think about it. Are there any kinds of spacers made just for this and has anyone here used them?View Thread
We have worked around this pretty well as we get used to each other. One position that helps is missionary with her legs together. That one helps a lot. I have to be really careful doing doggie so I just make sure I don't go all the way in. There is a good inch or more of me left when I bottom out. I slowly work in and back off when I start feeling resistance at my tip.View Thread
We seem to be working around this issue just fine, now that I have gotten used to not being able to go in all the way. I might still buy one of these spacers next time I get the opportunity. Either way, she does say it is better for me to be a little large than too small.View Thread
I am a very lean and wiry 33 year old man and have been told by women that I have a much higher than average sexual drive. Some women have told me that men with this body type are always the ones that surprise them, not the big body builder type.
I am curious if there is any correlation of body type to sexual drive and if us lean and wiry guys really have any stronger drive than average.View Thread
Gotcha! I have heard that very overweight people can have decreased drive due to hormone imbalances. I guess we are just all made different. In the past, I thought all guys were kinds just ready at a moments notice but this is not what I have been told.
I am naturally lean and wiry and have plenty of energy. I guess all this energy is part of what makes my drive high.View Thread
Several of my girlfriends have commented that my erections are harder than those of other guys they have been with. I don't view this as a bad thing but was wondering why. I have heard this could be related to good circulation. I am active and eat well so that would make sense.
I just assumed that most guys were pretty much the same when hard but I guess not. I am 32 years old and just as hard as when I was a teenager. I haven't compared with other guys of course so I don't know exactly how the hardness scale goes.
I have been told this several times now and am wondering why. It sounds like I am in better health, sexual and otherwise, than most guys my age. I am amazed that there are guys in their late 20's-early 30's already having problems with ED. I have been reading that this could be related to early heart disease so that is no good.View Thread
I say it depends on the situation. First, I am a 32 year old male and do have a stronger desire than most, or so I have been told. Either way, sometimes you really click on the first date and things happen. Other times nothing happens. I am not just looking for sex but a long term relationship. Some of those who I did it with on the first date were pretty long term girlfriends so I don't see it as a bad thing when it happens immediately. I have also had it where the woman initiates it first so it isn't all the guy's fault.View Thread
I am a fit and active non-smoking 32 year old guy who eats well and otherwise takes good care of myself. I am thin yet have strong and lean muscles for my size. I am not bulky but have very well defined muscle tone and very little body fat. I eat a lot for my size and mainly include whole grains, lean meats, seafood, and a lot of veggies.
I have ALWAYS had a very high sex drive and I am now dating someone who is worried that this might be the sign of a hormone/chemical imbalance or something wrong. I told her that I have a strong desire before anything happened but she said that strong doesn't even begin to describe my drive. When I was a little younger, a girl I was dating wanted to stay in and see how many times I could "do it" in a day. I think we lost track at around 20 times or so. I was very tired after this marathon session and could have gone without the next day but we managed to do it 3-4 times the day after. I also have a very short refractory period and can be ready to go again in a very short time 3-4 sessions in a row. I sometimes don't even get completely soft before going again.
My current GF is worried that I feel the need to "release" at least twice, usually three times per day to not feel pain in those parts. If I don't release in the morning, pre-cum will start dripping out and I will feel pressure in my male parts while at work, school, etc. I usually release myself in the morning, afternoon when I get home, and right before bed so three times is pretty much the norm. My semen is always cloudy unless I go at a marathon session and then it becomes clear and watery as well as less in amount.
I never realized this was unusual until a few women began pointing out some of their stories. One GF once dated an out of shape guy who could barely get it up and do the deed about once a week and that was a struggle for him, even at age 30. Past GFs tell me that many guys start having these issues in their 20's. They also say I have a much harder erection than most guys, which I have read indicates good blood circulation in the heart, etc. For the most part, I don't really feel much differently than I did when I was 18. This relates to sex and otherwise. I can do it 5-6 times per day, everyday, without feeling tired or worn out. I can also repeat this indefinitely multiple days in a row. The extreme sessions of 10 or more times are rare and do leave me feeling tired. For the most part, I am always ready to go and take no time to get up.
Here are some other things that might indicate why I am this way. 1. My GFs have always indicates my testicles are slightly larger than average. 2. My penis is right at 7 inches long when measured from the top part of the base to the tip (shortest way to measure). 3. I produce LOTS of pre-cum and it will just start dripping from me if I get excited at all. Several GFs have indicated that I produce the most of any guy they have been with. 4. I do feel contented after ejaculation but do not get tired and have more than enough energy to just get right back at it. It does help me sleep at night and is one of my reasons for doing it before I go to bed.
My current GF is worried this might harm my health long term although she has no issues with keeping me satisfied when we are together. I read several articles about possible mineral (mainly zinc) depletion as well as triggering hormonal imbalances. I have started taking 25mg zinc every other day or so after doing some research. If anything, my drive got a little stronger after doing this. The need to release has also become stronger.
I think my current GF is also worried about me cheating due to what she thinks is excessive desire. I told her that as long as I release myself, everything will be fine as I have never cheated on anyone before. She is a good person and we have much more in common than just sex but she sometimes says I have a one track mind.View Thread
I never thought this was a bad thing but just wanted to make sure. Thanks for the assurance. Personally, I really enjoy being able to get it up and do the deed at any time I wish. I really enjoy sex and feel it is a very important way to get closer to the one I care about. It is an essential part of the relationship for me and a lack of interest from the other partner is a dealbreaker for me.
I figured there was nothing wrong but have been told by all girlfriends that my drive is very high and this one was actually concerned. I guess it is a sad commentary on guys in this world when one who actually has all systems working as intended is viewed as being abnormal.
As for the guys who had trouble getting it up, yes they were out of shape and didn't eat well. They are probably heading towards a heart attack and other health problems. I understand a good erection is associated with good circulation and heart function.View Thread
