Just about everyone who has seen my penis has told me that it is large. I have measured it and it's just over 9 inches. I know that many people will think that I feel good hearing this from everyone. However, I don't like the way everyone talks so much about it, as if I were some circus freak. I wouldn't mind hearing something like, "Wow, you have a large penis," and just let it end there. But, everyone is like, "Holy #%i* you have a large penis. Look at this, everyone. Who would have thought that he has such a large one?" They just keep going on and on about it all the time. That bothers me.

This Week's Wackiest Response:
My grandma once told me that I had a large penis – but she is legally blind and needs to look through a strong magnifying lens. Hmmm...maybe I should get one for my girlfriend to look through!

Recently a guy in the sauna at my local gym (it's a nude sauna) complimented me on my body in general, and then specifically commented on my penis and low-hanging testicles. It was nice to hear this, especially coming from a guy who was not exactly undersized. It also made up for the time when I was 15, and another kid in the locker room yelled, "Dude, you have a small d***!"

When I first started to become sexually active with my girlfriend, I was quite nervous about the size of my penis. However, when we would masturbate together, she would always tell me how big my penis is. It boosted my confidence so much that ever since, I've never worried about my size!

When I was about 14 I went to the urologist for a checkup. The doctor noticed that my penis curves downward and mentioned that that is often a problem for guys with large ones. I was quite gratified that someone whose business concerns penises specifically mentioned that I have a large one.

I was in the restroom at a water park, changing into my swimwear, when a kid who seemed to be about 12 told me that my penis is huge. I just smiled and said thanks. Then I told him that someday his would grow bigger, too. I felt cool that someone noticed what I was given to work with.

When I was a teenager, my dad came into my room one morning to wake me and found me sleeping on my back, naked, and with an erection. He told me that my penis is huge, but I didn't believe him. I knew, from the usual schoolboy measuring, that it was dead average – a hair over six inches – and figured he was just trying to spare me the standard teen concern about whether it was big enough. Later, in my presence, he also told my mother, my sister, my uncle and, later still, my wife-to-be. I just wished he hadn't spread the word so widely – at least not with me present.

A girl once told me that I have a large penis. It made me feel a little weird, considering it's not *that* big. I have done my research, and I like knowing where I stand compared to other guys, just like many other guys, I'm sure. I liked hearing it nonetheless, but it didn't make me feel as godlike as I thought it would.

When I was 16, my first girlfriend told me. One of the first times she held my erect penis, she said how big it was. I felt great – on top of the world for about one second. Then, I became *completely certain* that she was (1) a virgin, and (2) had probably never seen an erection before. I had been masturbating with other boys since I was 14 and I knew I was below average, never mind big. But (does this count?) many years later, a girl told me that my testicles were "huge." They are, and she had enough experience to know it.

I was in the locker room shower and my best bud told me that my penis is big. I was happy. My penis is about 6 inches, but I had thought it was too small. He reassured me.

I have often told my significant other that he is well endowed. I hope it makes him feel good, because it's the truth.

No one has actually told me that my penis is big. Truthfully, the only person ever to see my penis, besides when I was getting my diapers changed, was my best friend. When we go swimming, or after a shower, we change openly in front of each other. Now, he has a big penis. He is about two years younger than me, and yet his is much bigger than mine. When I told him that I wished mine were bigger, he asked why. Then he said that a large one can really get in the way!

A close friend has commented with surprise at how big my penis is. He happened to notice as I was getting changed one day. Although the size of your penis doesn't determine status, sexual ability, or anything like that, it still made me feel very good about myself. I know that I will have a good "gift" for my wife!

A female once told me on the Internet that I have a large penis. We talk frequently and are quite close. Her initial response was that she "didn't expect it to be so big." So obviously, she thought that it is quite large – at least for my age. I had never before thought of my penis as large. At first, I grinned as broadly as my body allowed. Then, as the shock of her words subsided, I felt overwhelmingly confident. I think that penis size is a superficial and rather insignificant physical trait. Still, pride managed to find its way into my masculine mind.

When I was a teenager, I always thought that my penis was average; but when my girlfriend saw my erection for the first time, she said that it was like a huge white zeppelin. I figured that she hadn't seen any erections before, but it turns out that she had seen several. I also think she expected me to be smaller since I was a small guy when I was young. Even though I didn't give her opinion much credence at the time, it still made me feel proud of my equipment.

At school, the first time that we all showered together, all the guys got undressed about the same time. After stripping, we all started looking around to see who had what. When they got to me, their mouths dropped and they stared. Mine was considerably bigger than everyone else's, by some inches. I became more popular after that. It made me feel great to have something bigger and, in my opinion, better than everyone else. I'm glad that it was my penis that was bigger. That was probably my finest moment.

When my two sons were young, I often took them swimming and we would shower together. My younger son once reached over, felt my penis, and asked if his would ever get that big. I was a bit surprised because I'm on the small side of average. I assured him that his would grow as big as mine. Then recently, after swimming with my grandson, he asked me exactly the same question. It was such a wonderful moment, reminding me of my son's question. But alas, I've never had an adult mention that my penis is big, because it isn't. However, seeing my wonderful family reminds me that mine works well and as often as needed. Size wouldn't have made any difference.

No one has told me I have a large penis, but I've been told I have an *attractive* penis – not too long and not too big around. It's happened a couple of times during the past two years. Both times were with a friend while we were having a mutual masturbation session. I was a little embarrassed, but secretly, I was also pleased.
- age 16, California
The first time I heard that I have a large penis was from some guys I fooled around with in middle school, because by the time I was in 7th grade, I had attained most of my adult size (6.5 inches and very thick). In 6th grade I had been seriously embarrassed by being the first kid in my gym class to have hair under his arms (I got teased mercilessly) and was then very embarrassed by someone remarking about my penis size. As an adult, I have heard it often, but the size of my penis is not so important to me. I feel good if it turns the other person on, but it is certainly no ego trip for me. I have seen much bigger penises than mine.

A few times when I came out of the shower and I had friends over, they would tell me that I have a big penis. This would put me in a very awkward situation. To avoid this, today I make sure to have an extra pair of boxer shorts with me in the shower.

My husband has a large penis and I have told him so. The first time I told him that was on a date – not to make him feel good about himself, just to observe that it is large. It is too large and painful for sex to be comfortable for me, but it is fun to play with. However, if it were up to me, I would like it to be smaller.
- age 36, Minnesota (female)
While growing up in L.A., I was teased about my large penis. It was a traumatic experience for a 13- year-old. I had no one to talk to about it. Ironically, the guy teasing me had one just as big. I found myself wishing mine would shrink to be small like everyone else's. Little did I know that my wish would come true as I aged!
- age 47, Wisconsin
I was given a reasonably large penis compared to most. Whenever I'm naked around someone I always hear, "Oh my god!" It makes me feel kind of awkward when it happens. Lately, I find myself wishing I had a smaller one, just so I wouldn't get so much attention paid to the size of my penis. But I suppose if I had a smaller one, I'd be wishing it were bigger.
- age 17, Pennsylvania
I haven't been in a sexual situation with many people. A few (lovers and friends) have gotten a good look at me fully erect. The most that anyone ever said was "Wow!" in a tone of voice that betrayed as much intimidation as appreciation. I suppose it would be a boon if I had any interest in starring in pornographic films, but in practical use, it's not all it's cracked up to be.

It was another night at my girlfriend's house and we were making out on the sofa. She stopped after about 10 minutes, looked down, and noticed the bulge in my pants and told me she wanted to see how big I was. I then let her unbutton my pants and do whatever she wanted. She took it out and gasped. She said out of all the guys she had ever dated, I had the longest penis. I was surprised at this because my penis is only a little over 6 inches in length and I knew she had been with older guys. However, it did make me feel awesome. I would suggest that every girl commend their guy in such a way, for it does wonders for self-esteem.

I have heard this on a couple of occasions. The first time, the girl told me directly to my face, which was a totally awesome feeling. It was just cool to have her tell me that. The next was kind of different because I found out that my girlfriend had talked to her friends about it – I guess she "bragged" about it. Actually, one of her friends asked me about it. When I asked her how she knew, she said that my girlfriend had told her. The fact that my girlfriend was bragging about me was so cool.

I have told a guy that his penis is large, but only when it was true. More often, I have commented about how I find a guy's penis attractive.

I wish – *sigh*.

I have been told many times that I have a large penis, although when hard, it is barely 7" on good days. When it's flaccid, it can be about the same length, but it isn't like that all the time. Sometimes it just seems to disappear – perhaps after grueling sex, a day of compulsive masturbation, or a strenuous workout. But now that I'm in the middle of my life, I have noticed that my penis stays longer most of the time when it's flaccid – perhaps due to gravity. That can make for interesting moments in group showers these days. It sure makes this guy smile!

No one has said directly that I have a huge penis. But one day I was in the gym after school before football practice. I had on a pair of mesh gym shorts, so I was sporting quite the bulge. A girl on the soccer team asked me if I was wearing a cup. I didn't lie and told her no. She looked amazed, and after that, I got a lot more attention from the hot soccer girls. I felt awesome that day!

When I was 15 I had a mutual "show-and-tell" with a friend, who told me I had a "monster" penis when it was erect. I had not seen any other erect penises until that time, and was of a small and weedy build, so it made me feel less inadequate compared to my peers. The knowledge that I was "well endowed" made my painful adolescence a little less so.

Some friends and I were at a party playing truth-or-dare with a group of girls we had met there. I was dared to streak up and down the street with one of the girls. We stripped down together on the porch, and as I took off my boxers, I realized I had an erection. I paused, but then figured it was too late, so I finished taking off my clothes. As we stepped off the porch she said, "You've got junk to be proud of." It felt great to hear that because I had experienced doubts in the past.

In the middle of sex, my partner commented on my large penis. It made me feel powerful and manly.

I was staying at my granddad's house a few months ago and had just taken a shower. I was drying myself when he walked into the room. I didn't attempt to cover up because he had seen me naked before, although not recently. He commented that I have a large penis for my age and that it could get even bigger by the time I am 17. Naturally, I was highly delighted at his comments. After he left the room, I felt quite horny and masturbated standing in front of a large mirror.
- age 15, United Kingdom
After the first time we had sex, my first long-term girlfriend insisted my penis was above average in size. I'm pretty sure she was trying to flatter me. I'm almost exactly 6 inches long, which is widely established to be average. I was delighted by the compliment, though, and who knows? Maybe all the men who have participated in penis-size surveys exaggerated, and I really am a big guy.
- age 29, Texas
Two girls once said "Wow, it's huge" after I whipped it out in biology. It made me feel like a king. Later that week one of them was getting a closer look!
- age 16, Illinois
Yes, my ex told me that I had a large penis and compared it to a battering ram. It flattered me a bit and actually excited me a great deal.
- age 21, Australia
My male friends have told me that my penis is large. I have a 7 1/2-inch penis. Once during a hot summer-night sleepover, my friends and I got naked to be cooler. My penis was the largest and they constantly commented on it. For the rest of the night they called me "horse." I felt great.
- age 16, Wisconsin
I've told my boyfriend that his penis is large. It's over 8 inches in length, and it's the thickest I've ever had. To sum it up, he saluted with pride!
- age 32, California (female)
Oh, hell yes. It's not all good, either. When I have sex with my girlfriend I have to use *lots* of lube because I'm so big and she's so small.
- age 17, Canada
I've had women tell me they were afraid of my size, and one guy told me how impressed he was. I've also gotten stares and double takes from guys at a urinal next to me. It makes me feel good, but also a little weird. I'm not sure I want to feel like one of my high points is something I was born with. Plus, when I was very young, my mom used to brag to her friends about how big my penis was for a boy. In retrospect, I think that was inappropriate.
- age 47, Oregon
My guy was always freaked that he was too small. He was thinking about length – but to me, it's all about width. I can't even get my hand around him, so when I told him that I mean it, I think he felt a whole lot better. Besides, he's an average 6 inches and he's great. What more could I ask from a guy who loves me?
- age 17, Maine (female)
I heard about my large penis in the first two minutes of sex, and it made me feel hot and sexy.
- age 31, California
My penis is 7 1/2 inches long, with a large girth. I knew it was above average, but I was still nervous about it. One girlfriend told me it was the biggest she'd seen, and when I told another one about being nervous, she just said, "You have *nothing* to worry about!" Both times, it boosted my ego; but in the back of my mind, I think I'll always be a little nervous.
- age 20, Canada
Yeah, I've been told that I have a large penis. It was at the gym and my bud saw it. Coming from another dude, especially my best bud, it made me feel weird but superior too.
- age 17, Colorado
Statistically speaking, my erection may be slightly longer than average; although compared to porn actors, I never felt particularly large. The second girl I slept with, during sex, whispered how big she thought I am. Man! Whether or not it was true, it made my hormones surge so much that the intensity was instantly doubled. I guess it was a massive stroke to the ego, although unfortunately, it led to a quicker orgasm.
- age 19, Massachusetts
I've told one guy that he did. He had 8 1/2 inches which was impressive (I thought) for a 16-year-old. I told him in hope that I'd get to see it again. Well, it's been 4 months and nothing! Life sucks! Everyone repeat with me: LIFE SUCKS!
- age 16, United Kingdom (female)
The first time one girl and I had sex, she hadn't touched it before we started having intercourse, and she said, "Oh my god, you have a big d***." That really made me feel good about myself. Other times, it has been with a girlfriend while we were discussing sex. Whether or not it's even true, it's always cool to hear.
- age 20, New York
Being told you have a large penis makes a nice compliment and you feel good – but do you really need to be told? I think the saying "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" comes into play here. As long as I think my penis is big, I don't need to be told.
- age 14, Canada
When I was 16, my girlfriend and I were making out. She reached inside my briefs and felt my erect penis for the first time. She whispered, "I didn't know they could get this big." I ejaculated as soon as I heard that – so needless to say, I felt very good!
