How big are dicks in Skyrim? [Reddit] “Since my friend and I have been fiercely debating this, I would like to see the community's thoughts on what we have come up with. All of this is open for discussion, but I would prefer that you use evidence rather than personal bias. [...] As for the question about the shape of a Khajiits’ appendage raised by user Mrvalenti2000, it seems actual official Elder Scrolls lore has got that one covered – according to this Daggerfall: The Real Barenziah, Part III extract, their penises have “tiny little barbs”.” [via: PCGamesN] [Warning NSFW: discussion of dick.]

“Aight you idiots let's get down to brass tacks.

Length isn't everything, girth matters too.

Non-combat or stealth focused races are less likely to be in shape, so they have inferior bloodflow to the cock. This will not be accounted for in this report.

Height is more likely to correspond with length, so peepee length is roughly proportional to height.

So by MW standards: altmer(1.1)>nord(1.06)>orc(1.05)>argonian(1.03)>redguard(1.02)>every one else(1)>bosmer (.9)

Likewise, a race's propensity for thiccness (weight) should also correspond to girth

MW: orc(1.35)>nord=imperial(1.25)>redguard=argonian(1.1)>everybody else>bosmer(.95)

Now, the cock volume is proportional to length*girth2 (remember, it doesn't matter whether girth is measured by circumference, diameter, or radius, as those are all proportional to one another c=πd=2πr)
After factoring in some other vital criteria – like the various races’ unique abilities – the user arrives at the all-important order of penis-size-per-race:
Orc (best case); Redguard; Argonian; Nord; Imperial; Breton; Altmer; Bosmer; Dunmer; Orc (worst case); Khajiit.

Look- size doesn’t matter, skill matters, and the Dunmer tribunal/reclamations have a god/goddess/both because vivec of literal sex magic so- as with all things- go dark elf.

The barbed penis thing is kind of a shame because you have to assume the Khajit have a pretty solid chassis in terms of like haunch musculature that could be a real qualitative standout otherwise.

It should be noted that I have a google alert set up for the terms: "skyrim" & "elder scrolls". Reading this headline on my phone was interesting. This is not a subject or a headline I ever expected to get a breaking alert for. Yet here we are.

There was a time when I was very excited to install nude mods in games that let you take clothes off bodies. Seemed more realistic. But sadly, i had to really hunt for one that included nude male genitalia. Looks like that's changed since my day, thankfully.

I am pretty sure all of these numbers are much smaller than anything the Schlongs of Skyrim mod is gonna add. (NSFW, everything on loverslab.com is very NSFW.)

All Khajiit should have six nipples.

Skyrim is pretty cold but I don't see any accounting for shrinkage. So there's a topic for a future paper.

Well folks, I fell down That Hole and ended up Googling "human pearly penile papules" as possibly vestigial penis spines similar to what cats pack normally and I gotta find something else to do now.

Age of Conan is where I learned of the phrase: "dick slider", something that could easily be overheard in the film Boogie Nights.

Khajit has wares haunch musculature if you have coin.
posted by ricochet biscuit at 1:16 PM on May 6 [5 favorites]


Complicating matters, the Khajit have multiple sub-types depending on the phase of the moon. Given that they range in size from a housecat to as big as a large horse, I doubt there is a single penis size.

This is before we get into the Argonians and their symbiotic relationship with sentient trees that worship the primal outer darkness. Argonians consume the sap of these trees in a ceremony that apparently can determine their gender and growth patterns. So that's another wrinkle, the Argonians probably have penises however large as the sentient trees feel are necessary to serve the goals of the primal darkness.

Elder Scrolls is great because it looks like a standard sword and sorcery universe, but the deeper you go the more utterly bonkers it gets.

In a world where lizard ladies have boobs, every single assumption they make here about biology is questionable. I'm not even sure we can even trust that formula for calculating volume. Does pi even have the same value in Skyrim?
posted by straight at 1:32 PM on May 6 [10 favorites]


In fairness, the lizard ladies only have boobs because the trees that created them only had intelligent mammalian species as a template. Not knowing anything about animal reproduction, they concluded the boobs must be important somehow, probably, and stuck them on.

And yet somehow Khajiit still lack the standard 6-8 nipples they should have on their body.

Among primates, penis length does not correlate simply with size. Average human penis size is 13 cm, but this is matched by chimps. For gorillas it's 6 cm.

On (or in) the other hand, chimps are way ahead in ball size, with testes more than three times the size of a human's.

This is all due to differing behavior patterns. Chimps have enormous balls due to sperm competition: there's a lot of sex so the males want to deliver as much sperm as possible. Gorilla males monopolize females by force, so they don't put any energy into genital configuration.

All of which is to say that "peepee length is roughly proportional to height" is poor methodology. You'd want to look at the ancestral behavior of the species involved.

If you're going to choose that as a topic to explore and you don't immediately -- and perhaps exclusively -- focus on discussing the dragons, then there's probably no help for you.

I mean, do hemipenes count as a multiplier or an additive bonus?
