According to a study, penis size does matter to some people, but they may not be the ones you would expect.
University of Brighton senior lecturer Dr Christopher Morriss-Roberts suggests that in the bedroom, penis size doesn’t matter, but that to sportsmen in a locker room the situation is different.
In researching his PHD, Dr Morriss-Roberts interviewed four straight athletes and four gay ones, all who play a variety of sports like tennis, football and rugby.
His findings suggested that the athletes, gay and straight, were likely to look at other men’s penises in the changing room, comparing different sizes.
It also found that athletes were likely to “idolise” those with larger penises, and those teammates were more likely to be leaders in the team.
Some of the gay respondents said they felt self conscious changing in front of straight men, and one saying he thought it might be “unfair to change in front of heterosexual athletes, in case they felt uncomfortable”.
While straight athletes said they attempted to maintain semi-erections so their penises looked bigger, gay athletes didn’t as they felt they had to act in a “heteronormative manner to de-emphasize queer behaviour”.
Writing for OutSports, Dr Morriss-Roberts said: “This knowing of who has a large c*ck and who didn’t within a homosocial environment helped individual sporting males climb up a social hierarchy of importance,
“Those with the larger penises were revered and idolised by their teammates as a symbol of masculinity.”
The size of teammates appendages also were the basis for jokes outside of the locker room, and were discussed and joked about in social situations.
The reputation of those with larger penises was dififcult to maintain, his findings suggested, and those teammates had to maintain more active sex lives.
According to the Dr Morris-Roberts, those with smaller penises, especially if they were overweight, had to work much harder in order to climb the social hierarchy.
He wrote: “In the thesis I argue that a large penis is now an essential component of hegemonic masculinity, and should be considered a new tenet of masculine capital – taking into account the significance it has on social hierarchy in the sporting environment. I have called this cock-supremacy.”
He concluded: “My work suggests that cock size does matter in sport, irrespective of sexuality, sporting discipline and age.”
3 Men with a really huge penis reveal what their lives are like
- Most guys wouldn’t say no to a bigger penis, even if they fall within the range of 4.5 to 6.5 inches, the average size of an erect penis.
- While there are ways to surgically enhance your penis to make it bigger, the practices are cost-prohibitive and even a little dangerous. Most of us are stuck with what we’ve got.
- But it turns out having a big penis comes with its fair share of problems, too. It can be tough to fit your erect penis completely inside of a vagina. You also become known as the “big dick guy,” your identity reduced to one part of your body.
There was Willie Jordan, flanked by a dozen friends and a few curious strangers in the back corner of a dimly lit pub. “Get it out, get it out!” the rowdy spectators screamed. “Not here, not tonight,” Jordan answered. He liked this bar, and he didn’t want to get banned for performing his party trick. Nonsense, they said, as they formed an ironclad circle around Jordan to protect him. He had found himself in this situation so many times before, and he knew when it was time to admit defeat. So Jordan took a breath, carefully unbuttoned his pants, and pulled out his penis. The audience erupted, delighted to catch a front-row glimpse of the biggest penis in Newcastle. It was a legendary penis in the North East England town, and its owner had become a quasi-celebrity because of it. In his 20s, Jordan ate up the attention, showing off his super-sized schlong to whoever wanted to see it—and as rumors spread, his crowds ballooned. “I understand human curiosity,” he says. “If I had a friend who had six or seven fingers on each hand, or two heads, I’d be curious to see them, too.”But Jordan was now pushing 40, and the novelty of being a carnival attraction had long worn off. Desperate to get on with the night, he instinctively swung his big penis around like a piece of rope—the usual act—and stuffed it back into his briefs. The show was over.
Or so he thought. One inebriated fan—the same man who had repeatedly asked Jordan to sleep with his girlfriend that evening—demanded an encore, asking the performer to “just let it hang.” Fine, Jordan thought. Whatever will shut him up. But as soon as he brought his prized possession back out, the groupie grabbed it. “He literally tried to pull it off my body,” says Jordan. “Maybe he was on drugs, trying to drag a man’s penis off like that.” Read More Here
