Why are some people obsessed with the size of men's genitals? It's not like having a 6-inch penis will make you somehow more a man than one having a 4-penis.

Obsessing over height and looks -- I understand, but what is your obsession with the size of that organ which only one or two people will get a look at. Adding to that, a larger genital makes it more uncomfortable to be in public with an erection.

I agree dude. We obsess over our dick sizes. Well, not everybody but most males do. But I think more than one or two people will get to see it and that's probably part of the problem. In high school locker rooms and showers guys are checking each other out and comparing so there is competition in that. There is a belief that sexual partners will be more satisfied or interested in a big dick. I'm bi and am interested in boys. I could care less how big a guys dick is. If I think he's hot and am interested, he could have a tiny dick and it wouldn't matter to me. I'd be more interested in the person.

We all check out each other in locker rooms. It is not what you have, it is how you use it.

Not everybody will share it with one or two people...
anyway, because we grow in a society that consantly talks about sex and the organs that involve it. since we are young we listen to jokes about it and stuff, so when we start changing we feel insecure about it (besides teenagers usually are insecure)

Boys check each other out. I just try and sneak a peek but not get caught staring.

I think that penis size and comparing has to go back many centuries. It's just one of those things men have been worrying about and can feel inadequate about. So it really is a normal thing to do or be worried about. Girls worry about their breast size too so beats me just a thing we do I guess.

This is absolutely wonderful. This post takes most of what goes on here on VT and brings some logic here, haha. You shouldn't be showing that part of you to people who might seriously judge you for it. They're not trustworthy enough.

Exactly my words.

I don't really understand why modern people obsess over the size of the genitals -- that's totally barbaric! In civilized societies, I believe (that means Greek and Roman), large organs were associated with lust, foolishness and considered ugly: creatures like satyrs (Greek/Roman goat-men) were depicted as that. It's really shameful that some people consider themselves akin to satyrs.

I being a stanch adversary to this obsession am a bit harsh against those who brag about how big they are or ask others about their size. I consider these people barbaric -- no offense if you're not obsessed with it.

I would not say most obsesses over it, but definitely many guys do. Why? Because they see the size of penis as determinant to his sexuality. Many guys think that the larger/bigger the penis, more masculine they are. Of course that is a dumb idea. At the end, most people when looking for partners are concerned about other things than penis size.

All valid and all are right to the point. We DO obsess with size even though 90% of all of us are within the normal range that has been researched. The main thing, as Mick has stated if a girl is interested in a guy and/or a guy is interested in another guy that size thing goes out the window because the real key to a relationship is how you interact -- personality, common interests, communication, desire to be with your significant other -- and let that be the guide. Size is PERFECT if you are truly in a good relationship no matter what the ruler may state.

I agree totally with Jacob. I'm sure we'll all have far more important things to worry about.

I guess there are two reasons. One is porn. It's hard not to compare with the actors there and it makes people think maybe there's something wrong with them
Reason two is ads. I mean who hasn't seen 'truth about penis enlargement' in the mail or on random webpages?

And, of course, the people in porn are selected because they are big which distorts people's sense of normal.

Reason two is ads. I mean who hasn't seen 'truth about penis enlargement' in the mail or on random webpages?

I think it is more a case of these adverts preying on people's insecurity, perhaps created by the porn, and then relying on them being too embarrassed to make a fuss when they find the products concerned don't work.

As a girl, I feel some sort of responsibility to make clear that most of us (that is to say, girls) don't care about the penis size much at all. It's a cliché, but how the man uses it is much more important than the "it" itself. All penises are lovely and all of them deserve to be appreciated, regardless of size.

Because people compare themselves to what they see in pornographic material. Since girls watch pornography as well, boys logically think there is an expectation for their penis to be a "good" size in order to fully satisfy her needs... which leaves the boy feeling insecure about his size if it's not big enough.

idk its just something us guys are very curious about and we always think stuff like 'oh i have a bigger dick than him' and stuff like that. Idk we kinda get a thrill out of it.
