Not sure if you guys can help me with this, but here it goes. I'm almost 21 years old, and like pretty much all guys, this is something I'm insecure about. I would love to stop worrying about it once and for all. I know that the average length is 6 inches (which is the length I am, 5.5 inches in girth, not sure if that's thin or thick), but I have read online on different sites that some women think 6 inches is small, and some women think it is perfect. I also see many women online who say that anything under 7-8 inches is "no can do". I'm not really sure what to believe. I'm always looking at myself in the mirror trying to convince myself I'm not small, but it obviously doesn't work. What do you think? And if you have around the same size I do, have you had any bad experiences with women saying you aren't big enough or small?View Thread
alantewks, the first time I ever saw a penis other than my own was when I was about 7-8 years old, but not a friend's or family member, it was when my cousin showed me a porn video he found that my uncle had lying around. Of course since that was the first one I ever saw, I thought they were all supposed to be that big. As you can imagine, I was really disappointed (still am) when mine never grew that big. Now, even though I read that what I am packing is an average size, I am still not convinced that is what the "average guy" has (especially when I go on Yahoo Answers and see women saying that anything under 7 inches is small and not worth bothering with, and the smallest they've ever had was 6 inches, stuff like that). Maybe it has to do with the fact that my first time seeing one was at such a young age and it happened to be that of a pornstar. No matter what anyone says the average size is, I subconsciously think that I should be bigger. So you're probably right, no matter what anybody says, I will most likely still feel like I'm lacking down there.
