Don't super-size me

"Unsurprisingly, most men who think they have small penises don't. We could honestly solve so many sexual hangups in this country if ninth graders were just sat down, shown pictures of average-sized penises, and told that this, honestly, was what they had to live up to," writes Jesse Taylor. "I, along with seemingly the majority of the people I know, were introduced to images of normative penis size by porn, which pretty much ruins any chance of being realistic about size. Liberal or conservative, I think you can support this - the less young men (and even women) are obsessed about penis size, the less likely they'll be to use sex as a method of either displaying or compensating for it." Lauren from Feministe helpfully links to a penis size bell curve. (Pandagon)
