Dear Poll: Does Size Matter?

Does Size Matter?

Earlier this week I posted a comical Internet find: the Condometric, a condom with a ruler printed on it. While I thought it was a funny knick-knack, I realized that I've never asked you how you feel about size below the belt! The debate continues as to whether or not penis size matters, and since the answer depends on who you ask, now's your chance to tell us if it matters to you!

Hi, I run across this article after reading a different one on this site with my wife. This is a interesting subject to find on a women's website. It's nice to see so many opinions on here about stuff like this, considering this topic if often frowned on by many women. As for whether I think or if my wife thinks size matters, thats a easy answer, YES AND NO. YES it matters to the person who is involved sexually, yes it matters if a penis is too long, too thick, or too small. It also matters if the guy can not control his climax, or tries to be a dime store porn star or just another thug romance out of a bad rap video. I think its what works for each person. My wife and I have both had a few partners before meeting, and she will admit that size matters to her because she prefers vaginal orgasms over oral. But she is only 5'1 and for her anything over 8" will not fit, believe me I have tried. Myself I am just shy of 7.5" long decent girth about 6 inches around. Over all I have learned from ex partners who have experience VERY well endowed men, meaning men over 8", that though it can be a very nice turn on visually, that unless you have a large mouth, oral sex is harder to do, anal is usually out of the question and even after getting used to a guy, it can still take some time getting aroused to fit him in. I would say the best answers for this are from women who have taken polls and the majority admit that anything under 6 can be tricky for some women, that anything 8 and above can be fun at times, but not a daily desire and can be painful and takes longer to adjust to. That 7 inches with nice girth, is the perfect all around penis size. The little black dress that goes with everything and always works. And for the record, from a mans point of view , a buddy of mine who was well endowed, I'm talking 9 inches long and I guess average girth, he was a bartender I worked with, always had girls flocking to him, he was also a attractive looking guy. But he has admitted on many occasions over beers and bullsh*tting around that though he would NEVER want to get rid of his size, that it was a pain to deal with at times. That the majority of women he had been with, and thats different races too, that most women could not handle him.Even the ones who thought they could and were the so called SIZE QUEENS.

Size matters! The second guy I ever slept with was a guy who was so small/thin that I honestly couldn't even feel it. (My first lover was fairly large). I really liked him as a person, so I tried to fake it but I can't be with someone who does nothing for me sexually. I had to end it but I never told him why because I didn't want to hurt his feelings.

It's gotta be based on the girl, too. Some of my friends swear bigger is better, some say average is all they need, and in my experience, the best things come in small packages. I actually dated a guy who had a 7 inch penis...SOFT. Think tube of cookie dough practically when hard. It was actually painful and I rarely enjoyed sex with him (so unlike me!). Oddly enough, the best sex I've ever had? My current boyfriend who is average, and my ex a few years ago with a 4 incher. He was 6'5 so his penis didn't really look like much against the rest of him hehe, but I've never had so many O's in one night.

I voted that it matter's and that's only b/c I had a man that was to small but now I have one that's just right!! It all depends on how they can work with what they got! The Bigger The Better does play a roll in some women's life!!

My boyfriend is 8" plus and I love it but in all honesty I don't think it's length that matters the's more girth. A woman is only about 5" deep. I'm lucky in both departments complaints here!

My boyfriend is on the larger end of the size spectrum... He is the only guy I've done that deed with, so I don't know how important size is. I guess I'm spoiled with him. ;P

It does matter,i just dont want no 12 inches. But to me it's all about what you can do with it. I've been with guys who were just TOO big and didnt get anything out of it but pain! My boyfriend is 6 and a half and it has a perfect width!

it doesn't matter per say, its more how you use it. ive slept with a guy who was smaller but worked harder at sex to make up for it and on the opposite side of the spectrum, someone who was bigger and thought cause he had a big one he didn't have to do much so... its more how you use what you have

Size matters, but not so much length but girth. If he's average (6 inches) but thick, then there's potential. If he's long and skinny (like my ex) then who cares how long it is- it just isn't all that satisfying. Usually it kind of hurts, and it just doesn't feel right. I definitely have to agree with the other posters on guys who are well-endowed- they often have no technique at all because they have a big package. My ex knew he had the length going, but my God, the sex was boring. I had to teach him how to do oral, and he had more partners than me before we got together. I mean, come on! I think average sized guys try harder with foreplay and so on. I guess it's just what works for you.

Oh Reece, i was just in your spot. i was with a guy for two years who was just a bit too small for me. Sex at first was okay and then would be good for awhile and then get back to sucking. There were a lot of other problems but i kept remembering thinking "Is this really what i'm in for for the rest of my life? Only sort-of okay sex??? No, i can't do this." And i didn't. Finally broke up with him for good last month and haven't looked back. Sex isn't the only part of a relationship but i firmly believe that there is someone out there who can give me what i need and i'm going to find him! Good luck to you Reece!

I think it's like this, the length isn't as important as the girth. To get a really good sensation, you have to "feel it", and you'll definately be able to feel girth. But I'll also say that the guy needs to be working with some kind of length, and he definately needs to know how to work it.

Oh, it matters, but that doesn't mean that bigger is always better. It means that everyone is different, men AND women, and if it works for you, then it's the right size for you, and that might mean different things for different women!!

I've been with too big, too little and just right. I've even been with artificial. Size definitely matters. Good skills (oral, rhythm, pillow talk) can get a man farther when he's working with less, but there is nothing that can make up for a dick that is too short and/or too skinny (One guy had both problems:0! No wonder he sucked my toes first). Now, poor skills can kill the mood, even if he's the perfect size and girth. But, if he knows what he's doing and everything clicks, then 6-8 inches long, 1.5-2.5 inches wide is the perfect orgasm inducer!

There is a very funny posts and the comments too! CYL!!! LMAO!!! :D Jude:"Everything's just so dangly." AAAAhahahhahahahah!!! :D Size does matter. Like pretty much everyone else said, too big (length more than girth)=OOOWWWW. And of course to small="are we having sex yet?". My ex was average. My current bf is just right and can somehow hit just the right spot :) lol. Except in some positions he's to long and hurts, so he just has to be careful sometimes.

I'd have to say that for me size definitely matters. I’ve had both very big and very small and for me the difference is night and day. And although size alone won’t make a great lover, for me if a guy is small I think I’ll always be a little frustrated. This is too bad because my boyfriend is definitely smaller than average. I recall the first time we were together and being very disappointed with his size and thinking that the sex was terrible. My prior boyfriend spoiled me as he was not only an expert lover but also very big. With this man I could regularly climax, which is something that I have never even come close to with my boyfriend. Our sex life is a little better now (actual intercourse is still lousy but I’ve taught him a few other tricks) but its still pretty unsatisfying. Everything outside the bedroom is terrific so I’ve mostly just ‘settled’ into the reality that our sex life won’t be what I’m used to or what I want it to be. I’m still not 100% sure if sex is going to a deal breaker for me, although I’m mostly sure it won’t. I am jealous of the other girls who have found a guy who is a good fit for them.

Too big is NOT a good thing (ouch). I'm a small person, so it has to be really small to be too small for me.

Um yes it does matter. He can't be too small-- then you don't feel anything. If he's too big, it will hit your cervix and hurt. Yeah I know I am just echoing most of the comments on here. I am perfectly happy with my bf's size now-- just the right thickness and average length.
