An Investigation into the Dick Size of the American Male

From: VICE

The smallest penis in Brooklyn and the (alleged) largest penis in the world.

here’s something fascinating about penises.

In truth, my fascination is less about penises themselves and more about the disjuncture between what they are—dangling, fleshy, easily agitated protuberances—and what they are asked to represent: authority, virility, power. They are masculinity’s synecdoche, and rather an odd choice.

For a start, #notallpenises get to be representative of strong, manly qualities. We know the hierarchy: big = good, small = bad. For an organ that changes size upward of 11 times a day (and even more frequently at night), the size thing really gets to people. As a woman, I get that. I know what it is to consciously or unconsciously size up my body or parts of my body, noting the sizes of others', comparing, keeping track. It’s an enormous amount of unnecessary pressure, and it seems to me that if you tell a man he has a “small dick,” the message is more or less the same thing as saying, “You’re fat” to a woman: You are sexually undesirable and not good at being your gender.

While conversations about the everyday humiliations of embodiment in present-day North America are common among my female friends, the only men I’ve ever really talked to at length (heh) about their junk have been boyfriends or lovers. I was reminded of something dick-pic critic Madeleine Holden said in an interview with VICE in May: “I've come to the conclusion that men face similar (although less intense) pressures to look a certain way, but are afforded fewer outlets to discuss how it affects them. Traditional masculinity requires men to be stoic about their emotional issues and men risk being called pussies and fags if they are openly self-conscious. Basically, men are a simmering heap of raw nerves and unexplored emotions.”

I put out a call on Twitter: Did anyone want to talk about his dick? It turns out people really, really did. More than 55 men (all cis-gender) responded to my casual survey, including Jonah Falcon, who currently holds the title for largest recorded dick in the world, and Nick Gilronan, the winner of last year’s Smallest Penis in Brooklyn contest. Aside from Falcon and Gilronan, everyone else’s names have been changed. I let them pick their own pseudonyms.

The men came from a conveniently varied range of geographic, racial, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Their average age was 32. The average dick size was 6.2 inches erect, at the high end of the North American average, which is between five and six inches. (I expect Jonah’s 13.5-inch penis skewed the stats somewhat.) The smallest reported penis was 3.6 inches erect. There was a 50:50 foreskin-to-circumcised ratio. The sheer range of items men compared their dick and balls to was incredible—eggs, berries, iPhones, Magic Markers, the classic bottle of Coke, and “about two lighters, end to end.”

With a few exceptions, almost all the guys knew the exact dimensions of their penises—length and circumference. A few claimed to “never have measured,” but even they acknowledged that was hard to believe.

This sample group was simultaneously very OK with having average-size penises, and not totally aware what the average is. Almost everyone considered their dicks to be average size, even when this was clearly not the case. “I know the average in Canada is between five and six inches,” said Steve, a 25-year-old from Toronto. “So I’m in the ballpark.” Steve’s penis is seven inches long and five inches around. Neil, 37, felt his was “likely below average,” despite it being over six inches (the top of the statistical average) while erect, and “occasionally having problems with lady friends not being able to accommodate it.” Overall, most men reported being happy with their penises, regardless of size.

The most concern seemed to be among the grower-not-a-shower demographic. Deggy, a 32-year-old bisexual man from Leeds, said he consciously avoids Speedos because of his 3.5-inch flaccid, 6.5-inch erect penis. “I often think, 'If only they could see it erect, then they wouldn’t think less of me,'” he said.

Ahmed, 29, from Toronto, said his erect penis is “slightly smaller than the length of an iPhone 5C.” He started shaving his pubes in his teens to make his 4.7-inch penis look longer and has kept up the practice despite not really noticing a difference. “I often feel ashamed of the size of my penis,” he said. “We're so inundated in our society that bigger is better, and people are always talking about if size really matters or not, so it's hard sometimes to not feel inferior.” He added, “I've often heard the average penis is five to six inches, so technically I'm almost average, but I still feel inferior, and often wish I had a bigger dick. I worry about my size constantly. It’s definitely something that sticks in the back of the mind and affects confidence.”

The lone supporter of this demo was Gilronan, winner of the aforementioned Brooklyn’s Smallest Penis contest, who said, “I do enjoy when I'm with a significant other and she looks at my penis in amazement when it triples in size from flaccid to erect. That always seems to wow them.” Flaccid, Nick’s penis is about one inch long. “I’m happy with my penis. Absolutely no complaints. We’ve had many fun times together and with others.”

Most men with small dicks reported finding their penis size unremarkable. “No one’s rushing home to text their girlfriends about it, but I’ve made peace with the size,” said Jim, 30. Men under four inches also reported occasionally being turned down for sex based on their dick size, but most were resilient enough to consider that bad manners on behalf of the proposed sex partner. John, a 67-year-old from Mississauga, Ontario, said, “Of the eight women I’ve been with, each of them eventually told me they’d been uncertain about the level of satisfaction I’d be able to deliver… Only one woman has ever decided it wouldn’t be OK for intercourse.”

There were a few ardent small-peen supporters, too. Kenny, 46, has a penis that is “just under four inches” and “about the size of a magic marker (med size).” He was very positive about all aspects of his genitalia, including balls (“left one hangs lower than the right, but feel great!”), foreskin (“I am great with it”), and overall aesthetics and functionality (“it may not be long but it does have a nice head and shoots big loads :) ”).

While less hung men were either neutral or negative about their small penises, men with large dicks seemed positively affected by the knowledge that they’re packing heat. “If I was as happy with everything else in my life as I am with my penis, it would be pretty magical!” said Stefano, a 26-year-old from Toronto with a girthy seven-inch penis. “I honestly love the size of my dick,” Luke, a Brooklyn-based 27-year-old with eight inches of cock in his pants. He explained, “I suffer from depression, and at low points its been a source of (extremely gendered comfort) for me. I think it’s bigger than the statistical average and that feels great.” As a child, Luke spent his spare time stretching his scrotal skin to completely engulf his penis. “Watching it slowly unfold would provide hours of entertainment.”

Todd, a 37-year-old from Toronto with an 8.5-inch dick, said he was “quite pleased” with his penis. “It never fails to impress. It’s visibly bigger than most other penises I’ve seen. I play a lot of sports so am in a lot of naked man showers.” He said there wasn’t anything particularly remarkable about well-endowed life, “other than how into big dicks girls are… They talk about it throughout the entire experience.” Todd also took the time to posit a theory: “I actually find that girls that are attracted to me are predominantly a C-cup and over. Is there a genetic thing that attracts well-endowed men to well-endowed ladies and vice verse?” Food for thought.

The men I spoke to mostly referred to their penises in the context of others—what sexual partners said about it, how it compared with others they’d seen. Average men responded with “no complaints from sexual partners,” while large dicks remarked on women’s positive comments. Overall, if a man’s penis was under five inches erect, he made repeated and emphatic reference to his ability to please orally. “It’s nothing to brag about,” said a man with a four-inch penis. “I wouldn't go showing it off.”

This experiment, like the abortion interviews I conducted a few months ago, reminded me once again how hard the patriarchy is truly screwing both genders. Many of the men said their everyday lives didn’t really afford them space to talk about their bodies and the pride and/or insecurity those bodies can elicit. They usually spoke about their penises with sexual partners or sometimes with guy friends, but the former conversations tended to involve (as one interviewee put it) “a biased party, trying to be kind or preserve feelings or get things going,” and locker-room-style conversation among lads was largely sexual grandstanding. More than a few of the interviews closed with an expression of relief. “This has been interesting… and to be honest, very unburdening,” one interviewee said.

The 100 Greatest Lost Hits of The 80’s Part 2: The New Batch

Cheryl Lynn

Long before Star Search, there was The Gong Show, in which amateur talent would risk humiliation to perform in front of Rip Taylor and Joanne Worley. By far the most successful contestant was the fabulous Cheryl Lynn (TRIVIA: She would lose in her episode to a singing juggler).

Even though she lost, she was immediately sought out by record companies, and in 1978 released her debut single, the iconic “Got To Be Real,” which she took to #12. She would follow that up with another classic dance hit, “Starlove” (#62) in 1979, and in 1981 hit #70 with “Shake It Up Tonight.”

She would only hit the Hot 100 once more, with “Encore,” the first single from her album Preppie, which hit #69 in March 1984. Oh, how we roller skated to it.

As for the video … I can’t even …

No, seriously, I can’t even with the video. I just can’t (although I do have to give major props to the woman in blue having the seizures).

Nyle DiMarco

The recent America's Next Top Model winner—the last one for the series—is this strikingly handsome, sexually fluid, deaf dude, and Tyra's really going out on a high note with this one.

Striking a pose
DiMarco wants the public to focus on his deafness more than on his sexual orientation, considering how much press the latter gets in general. He told MTV:

Yes, as a minority I felt wholly responsible to represent my deaf community well. Often in the past, when we have had a deaf person in the spotlight we have been portrayed badly. It was up to me to change that. Fortunately it was not difficult because I grew up in a deaf community and know deaf culture by heart.

He also says he is single, so there is hope for you.

Paris Terror Suspect Who Frequented Gay Bars Has Been Found In Brussels

Salah Abdeslam is now in police custody.
From: NewNowNext
Salah Abdeslam, the last remaining suspect in the Paris terror attacks last November, has been captured in Brussels.

Gunshots were heard in Sint-Jans-Molenbeek, and its believe Abdeslam was shot in the leg but otherwise unharmed.

Abdeslam, 26, grew up in Brussels, though he had French citizenship. Authorities believe he played a key role in organizing the November 13 attacks that killed 130 people, and drove several other suspects to their destinations.

After the attacks, sources reported that Abdeslam frequently habituated Brussels’ gay neighborhood, “Jacques Quarter,” but its not clear if he was looking for a sexual liaison or to steal IDs.

Bartenders say he was at the bars so often, they assumed Abdeslam was a prostitute.

Rumors circulated that stories about Abdeslam being in gay bars were invented by authorities to turn him into a pariah among his compatriots, but those claims have been dispelled.

Nyle DiMarco Gears Up For His Big “Dancing With The Stars” Debut

 America’s Next Top Model winner Nyle DiMarco is gearing up for his big debut on Dancing With the Stars next week, where he’ll perform and stamp his place in history as the show’s first male deaf contestant.

The mega-babe has been in and out of the dance studio these last few weeks in preparation for the big day, and posting a few teaser shots to Instagram with his pro dance partner, Peta Murgatroyd:

He’s also been looking just as great (if not better) on his way in and out of the studio. Thank goddess for the paparazzi:

Nyle will mark his historic DWTS season by vlogging about his experiences for People.

In his inaugural vlog posted this morning, Nyle said he thinks his deafness may actually be an asset in the competition.

“We’ve been rehearsing quite a lot. It’s been amazing and full of [surprises],” he said. “I’m surprising myself that I actually can dance. Peta, my partner, was also surprised that I can dance.”

“Rehearsal this week has been good, but one time we actually tried to make the music as loud as possible to let me hear the music and I felt the vibrations but when we started dancing, it felt off. I realized something new about myself. Even though I’m a deaf, I think that I should always stay that way [when I don’t hear the music,] I dance well!”

Another thing that may come in handy on the ballroom stage are those powerful, delicious thighs. He posted a shot of his bottom half on Twitter last night, as if you needed another reason to tune in:

NFL To Georgia: No Super Bowl For You Unless Governor Vetoes Anti-LGBT RFRA Bill

From: Joe My God
If Georgia chooses to turn the “religious liberty” bill into law, be prepared: Atlanta may not get a Super Bowl. That was the suggestion from the NFL on Friday when the league released a statement in response to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s question about whether the league had any position on Georgia House Bill 757.

The statement from league spokesman Brian McCarthy reads, “NFL policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness, and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other improper standard. Whether the laws and regulations of a state and local community are consistent with these policies would be one of many factors NFL owners may use to evaluate potential Super Bowl host sites.”

Falcons owner Arthur Blank has hoped to land multiple Super Bowls in the team’s new stadium, which is scheduled to open in 2017. The NFL has previously moved a Super Bowl from Arizona to the Rose Bowl near Los Angeles in the 1992 season after that state refused to recognize the Martin Luther King holiday.

Lincoln Center Announces “Queer Films Before Stonewall” Festival Lineup

We were here before the revolution.
From: NewNowNext
Lincoln Center is set to debut “An Early Clue to the New Direction: Queer Cinema Before Stonewall,” a film festival celebrating LGBT films from the dawn of movie making to the late 1960s.

Running April 22 to May 1, the series includes 23 features and 24 shorts spanning 65 years, with the earliest film dating back to 1895. It incorporates silents, major Hollywood productions, foreign films and indie movies.
 “The subject of early queer cinema has long fascinated me; this survey has, in a sense, been in the works for over a decade,” says programmer at Large Thomas Beard, who hopes to demonstrate how the “the terrain [of queer cinema] is far vaster and more varied than received histories might suggest.”

Audiences will have a chance to revisit classics like Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope , and Vincente Minnelli’s Tea and Sympathy, indies including Shirley Clarke’s Portrait of Jason and Andy Warhol’s My Hustler, and rare treasures like Jacqueline Audry’s lesbian drama Olivia from 1951 and Gregory Markopoulos’ experimental Twice a Man from 1964.
