At least it's too awful to ever become a cosmetic augmentation.

At the bottom of the article-- is this credited (in French) to "Celestial Beaver"?

"It’s certainly a nice gain for the field," says Anthony Atala, a urologist[.]"

Do they teach punning in med school? If not, now they should.

I'm also wondering what they do with the hair on the flaps of forearm skin.
posted by davy at 11:09 AM on December 7, 2004


Better hairy than nary.

I have a number of excellent and very witty jokes I could share, but I won't.

Hadn't thought about the hair, but:

The arm is restored with a skin graft from the buttocks.

What restores the buttocks?

Great quotes from the article:
"the average length (12.5 cm)" (finally, an argument FOR the metric system)
"flaps of skin from the forearm" (foreskin?)
"he rolled it up "like a Swiss roll"" (well, that killed my appetite)
"cylindrical flap" (sounds like a way to describe a flameout on MeFi: "bunnyfire got into a cylindrical flap")
"Pushing a button under the scrotum"

MetaFilter: pushing a button under the scrotum

12.5cm is only 5"! Is that the average?

/genuinely shocked as cannot google "average penis size" from work without disturbing looks from colleagues.

Is there anything they can do about my macro-penis?

Micro-penis sufferers, rejoice!

Just make sure that you have some tissues handy to help clean up after you've "rejoiced"
posted by filmgoerjuan at 11:46 AM on December 7, 2004


Longbaugh, according to the soi-disant Definitive Penis Size Survey (contains NSFW images near bottom), the mean length of an erect penis is 6.4".

I have a few ideas, horse-boy.

horsewithnonname, longbaugh... I'm beginning to see a pattern in these usernames.

Fenriq: f you very much. Besides, this is not a problem that ails me--trust me, I can send you references!
posted by ParisParamus at 12:02 PM on December 7, 2004


I've always heard (and personal experience with a relatively large sample size bears this out) that average is between 5.25 and 5.5 inches.

I thought the exact same thing fenriq!

Fewer micro penis sufferers could be great news for all humanity.
posted by nofundy at 12:11 PM on December 7, 2004


PP - you get your ex-partners to sign references?

kenko - blocked from work unfortunately, much as the idea of several cocks all over the screen amuses me...

digaman - don't read too much into that - I don't like to blow my own trumpet*

Is it cheaper than getting yourself a monster truck and a huge shit-kickin' cowboy hat?

So an augmentation based on a full-grown man's arm is this century's version of a baby's arm holding an apple? Quick, someone page Fee Waybill!

After the procedure, will the patients have to buy bigger shoes?

Probably.

P.S. It's not mine, btw. Although, the fact that I'd make this my first post to Mefi certainly begs the question...

Oh, (definitely) NSFW.

mr.curmudgeon, that is the biggest clitoris I've ever seen! And is first posts go, I think that's a weiner! Hehehe.

Someone should write a satire of Harrison Bergeron, but about abnormal penis length.

specklet:

Penis-skin grafts. It's a really vicious cycle.

I'm glad I'm not a member of that club.
Can he check the organ donor box on his drivers liscense now?
Will he go to the head of his class?

Kenko: Methinks the author of your link may have an ulterior motive for his website... found at the bottom of the page:

THE ONE AND ONLY LINK!

"The Vacuum Pumpers Site". If you, like many other readers of this page, are curious about the effectiveness of penis pumps and other enlargement techniques, you may be interested in visiting this highly informative site. If you don't find what you are looking for, consult the general discussion forum page and post a question!

Holy shit, HA, I just realized "I just wanted to say Penis" was my thousandth comment.

Gratz!!

What with this and the BBC sex-ed site, doesn't anyone talk about cock in inches anymore?
posted by Blue Stone at 3:29 PM on December 7, 2004


well Balisong, this thread IS about insecurity!, ;)

silently cries to self and is sure it's a problem with other men, too.

Also, are you accusing me of blowing my own penis comment?
posted by Peter H at 3:37 PM on December 7, 2004


Peter H, I could not accuse a man for blowing his own penis. Comment!

mr. curmundgeon, that picture did not take into account the shrinkage factor; probably he was in the pool for a long, long time

Yes. But all men are larger than average.

I imagine this particular procedure will be of interest to members of this website.
posted by skryche at 9:04 AM on December 8, 2004


I've done the math. Micro-penis syndrome affects approximately 1 in 200 men. Metafilter has approximately 20000 members. Assuming half of these are men (a conservative estimate), that means at least 50 among our ranks are endowed with tadgers tinier than 2 inches in length. (This assumes a random sample, but somehow I doubt mefi is representative of normalcy.) In any case, a surprising statistic-- more people than PP probably found this post helpful.
posted by mowglisambo at 1:30 PM on December 8, 2004


Kenko, that site is bogus. You want to talk about a site for this kind of talk, try the two opposing forces of nature. Measurection and Large Penis Support Group.

Dont ask me how I know.

I refer to "fist-fulls" myself. (I've got small hands.)

... it would mean Metafilter has approximately 10,000 members.
