Oddly enough, the direct cookie link doesn't seem to be working for me these days. Anyone know what's up?

" "I'm submerged in penis" "
"At one point, he was measuring himself so often that the chafing edge of the ruler severed his frenulum, the piece of skin that connects the head to the shaft."

Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow!

After reading that article, I've got a serious case of shrinkage.

Pipes! Weights!

The Vargas article is also very good. If medical professionals aren't interested in the practice, I'm sure a medical anthropologist would be.



In Re: to cookie.html... I noticed it as well and when I viewed the ad to get my daypass it said cookie756.html instead. Maybe now it counts each person that reads the article?

How about supporting content you want to read by at least opening the ad in a background tab?

Love the picture of his girlfriend.

No, not the inset pose showing her boobs, the one in the mirror showing her Billy Idol picture-taking sneer.

mrbill that's a hell of a wang.

At 21 Mozart was already becoming legendary. At 25 Alexander the great had forged most of his empire.

Some men write symphonies, plays, have great accomplishments, raise families, build, forge, create.

Some men work on their peckers.

I suppose it's better than being a currency trader or something.

From the Size Matters testimonials:

"I started at 5” flaccid size and today I am at 8” flaccid. Thanks to Doublelongdaddy I no longer have to hide in the locker room."

Guys like this must think life is a porn film. If he'd looked around the rest of the locker room instead of staring down at himself, he might have realized that he had no problem.

Info reassures men who think their penis is small:
"Men should know that a normal-sized penis is 1.6 inches or more when flaccid or 2.76 inches when stretched out."

Well does it work? ;)

Forget about what size it is flaccid, all that matters is what size it is when erect. And last I heard, that isnt changing with any exercise.

SirOmega: The writer actually measured the interviewee's erect johnson. It was over 10" long erect, so, presumably, these excruciating exercises work for erect size, too.

I'm sure there are some deep seated insecurities in men that feel the need to stretch their cocks out like this. That and they like to hurt themselves.

I also like his gay-escort stylized eyebrows too. I wonder what the hell this does to all the blood vessels and tubing within the penis. Not to mention it must make the actual skin look all stretched out and gross. Is buying a Porsche not good enough for this guy?

And no man likes to have pain shooting up the shaft of his penis.

Never a truer statement was made . . .

Do these men not realize that the average, aroused vagina length is less than seven inches? I mean, you ain't pleasing a woman with a ten inch dick. That just _hurts_. This is wholly a problem cured by the purchase of a large truck or boat.

Is this psychologically any different from breast enhacements?
posted by stbalbach at 12:41 PM on July 8, 2005


Some people spend WAY too much time looking at penises -- theirs and others'.

I suppose one could say that there's a whole 'nother kind of insecurity that goes hand in hand (so to speak) with people who are so obsessed with cock size...

Oh, and here's a picture of a man with a very large cock.

That is exactly what I was going to say, sian. God, where do you put that thing? You are not doing my cervix any favors, baby.

Stay away from my cervix with that thing is all I can say.....

I would, had I not installed a hosts file that gives me a "page cannot be displayed," from which I can't click through. But FWIW cookie756 worked fine for me — thanks sciurus.

well, you know, if hours of penis exercise keeps these guys off the street, it can only be a good thing for society. did kinsey come up with an ickiness threshold based on how long one thinks about one's own genitals?

but stuff like this is bound to happen...society still too often rewards those who lose rational perspective...like, back in the day, olympians were functioning members of society who happened to have celebrated athletic ability, not people who devoted their lives to winning a medal...i don't see how this is much different
