Penis Anxiety

Women are much more interested in a man’s personality and looks than the size of his penis, but men can experience real anxiety even if they are average sized, according to a research review published in the June issue of the urology journal BJU International.

Dr Kevan Wylie from the Porterbrook Clinic and Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, UK, reports that while men often have a better body image, genital image and sexual confidence if they have a large penis, women don’t necessarily feel that bigger is better.penis size3He teamed up with Mr Ian Eardley from St James, Hospital in Leeds to bring together the findings of more than 50 international research projects into penile size and small penis syndrome carried out since 1942.

By drawing together the results of 12 studies that measured the penises of 11,531 men, they discovered that average erect penises ranged from 14-16cms (5.5 to 6.2 inches) in length and 12-13cm (4.7 to 5.1 inches) in girth.

Wylie and Eardley also looked at the bizarre practices used by men worldwide to enhance the size of their penis, including the Topinama of Brazil, who encourage poisonous snakes to bite their penises to enlarge them for six months!

They report that Indian Sadhus men are known to use weights to increase the length of their penis and Dayak men in Borneo pierce the glans of their penis and insert items into the holes to stimulate their partner.

Other key findings of the review include:

* A survey of over 50,000 heterosexual men and women found that 66 per cent of men said their penis was average sized, 22 per cent said large and 12 per cent said small. 85 per cent of women were satisfied with their partner’s penile size, but only 55 per cent of men were satisfied.

* Two studies reported that 90 per cent of women prefer a wide penis to a long one. Other studies pointed out that the issue of male attractiveness was complex, but that penile size was not the most important factor for women.

* Small penis syndrome is much more common in men with normal sized penises than those with a small micropenis with a flaccid length of less than 7cm (2.7 inches).

* One study found that 63 per cent of men complaining of small penises said their anxieties started with childhood comparisons and 37 per cent blamed erotic images viewed in their teenage years. None of the men studied actually had a micropenis.penis size1

Time Just Keeps Slipping By

November hasn’t provided me the time to generate as many posts as I may have liked.  I’ve been working on my next book, a collection a of short stories called Erotic Tales for Enlightened Minds.  I’m seeing it as my most interesting work to date, dramas that involve the human condition in its infinite varieties, created for men and women that have an interest in such things.

The first draft of some of these tales are currently posted on this site.  But as I say, they are first drafts.  Think of them as rose buds; genuinely pleasant to look at, though you don’t see the petals or smell the fragrance.  This is where an author’s work begins.  The story has been outlined, but to smell the fragrance and see the colors depends on the author’s propensity for just the right keystrokes.

It should be available on Amazon by the end of the year.  In the meantime, if you haven’t read any of my novels, you might give one a try.  Or if you have and enjoyed it, try one of the other ones.  Just click one of the links to Amazon in the right margin.

A Haunting Interpretation of the American Male

Patrick Earl Hammie

Patrick Earl Hammie

From the artist’s website at www.patrickearlhammie.com.

Patrick Earl Hammie’s paintings explore the tension between power and vulnerability as he re-imagines the modern male. Blending traditions of the Old Masters with contemporary modes of representation, Hammie’s portraits question and present visual alternatives to historical examples of masculinity. Adopting body language and narrative to reinvent and remix ideal beauty and heroic nudity, Hammie examines how male artists have historically represented themselves and the male nude. The traditional presentation of the male artist and nude as well as conventional ideas of the Black Macho live in the flesh of his models as they attempt to remove, purge and relocate the weight. Drawing from his life history as a son, a male and an African American struggling to synthesize past adversity, Hammie’s paintings symbolize his shadow-selves and visualize the effort to reconcile inner duality, transcend typical masculine ideals and yield to new realities that require constant compromise and change.
