Every man wants to say he’s got himself a big dick. But the truth of the matter is, 85 percent of those men are lying. Research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine discovered that only 15 percent of men measure at seven inches and just two percent measure over eight. This same study deduced that the average length of a penis is 5.6 inches and its circumference is 4.8 inches.
But since so many men deem it necessary to lie about their size to feel more confident, I figured I’d put out a call to hung gentlemen in North America and have them discuss the lesser-known disadvantages of having a big penis, since we can all take a stab at what the advantages are.
From this callout, I heard back from a bundle of heat-packing men. Each had no qualms telling me what it was that puts a damper on the whole big dick thing. I spoke with each of them and discovered that hung men are almost prisoners to their larger-than-life penises. Below are the disadvantages we discussed.
It’s Difficult To Bed Short Women – Darren, 30, 8 inches
One disadvantage that I have is that I am an average height guy, so I tend to be attracted to shorter women. This means that size can be a problem right from the start. Since everything on her is proportionally smaller, she can be concerned about more pain than pleasure coming from having sex with me.
Because of this, I find myself trying to hook up with women who are as tall if not taller than me, just to improve the odds that she can handle it. But this is difficult, because many women do not want to date a guy shorter than them. This definitely reduces the pool of people I have access to, and at times is rather frustrating.
Anal Sex Sends Your Partner To The Hospital – Curtis, 29, 9.75 inches
Certain positions hurt girls, including some of my favorites: doggy style and reverse cowgirl. Anal is usually out of the question and I’m not going to lie, I’m a big fan. I’ve accidentally had to take a woman to the hospital. Also, reputation at local bars is disadvantageous — every single one of my ex-girlfriends and her friends know me or “have heard of me.”
Being Too Thick Is Even Worse – Jeremy, 41, 8.2 inches
I’ve encountered zero disadvantages to having a longer penis. Every problem — except maybe unwanted erections — I’ve had is due to girth. When I was dating every one of my girlfriends, each was genuinely afraid to try having intercourse with me. When I finally got married, I was still technically a virgin. I’d been given hand jobs, oral sex and other types of “outercourse” but no actual intercourse. Guys who wish they had big penises should wonder what something like that will do to a young man’s ego.
Sometimes, All You Are To Her Is Your Penis – Franklin, 40, 8 inches
One big disadvantage is when you like a woman and really want to pursue a relationship with her but she just wants to be with you because of the size of your penis.
You Become A Stereotype – Justin, 31, 8.5 inches
There are many expectations, stereotypes, etc. that come with having a big dick and it can even turn some girls off. Just because I’m on the bigger side doesn’t mean I’m some player. I’ve never even had a one-night stand, I’ve only slept with five women!
You Must Edit Your Wardrobe – Benjamin, 31, 10 inches
Fitted trousers can be restrictive and certain sex positions are off-limits. I can only wear fitted boxers because I need things to stay in place and I usually can’t fully thrust as I may bruise my girlfriend’s cervix. Foreplay is a must and sleeping with certain ladies is just not possible.
