Size In Mirror Standing Sideways

Size In Mirror Standing Sideways

I have never been happy with the appearance of my size from the side. I am so sensitive about it that I put my boxers on immediately after sex and hesitate to ever check my erection in the mirror from the side. My wife never says anything but I suspect she knows there’s a sensitivity there.

I think there are several factors that contribute to this even though I have good measurements. One is that I have a lot of excess weight. To be fair though, I never liked the look even when I weighed far less, however. The weight for sure doesn’t help. Another factor is my thigh size. I have always had very large thighs that look gigantic from the side. This has a dwarfing affect on the visual size of my unit. I’m also pretty tall at a legit 6’0 (what other people would say is 6’2-6’3). To throw it all together, I have massive bear paws for hands that make everything look small. I’ve gotten several comments and funny looks after shaking hands with those who notice my large hands. Aside from the size of the things around my penis, my penis seems to be attached very low in the pubic area. This makes it so so that my already large legs actually hide the base of my penis from the side.

How about everyone else? Is anyone else unhappy with the side view of their penis like I am?

I’m actually the complete reverse. Dick looks kind of small and skinny to me from the top looking down, but when I stand in front of the mirror it looks nice and big and veiny.

It’s almost like you were describing me. Yes, that’s exactly how I feel. I’ve got decent measurements that I find very difficult to believe because of my very large thighs. Not to mention that i am now somewhat overweight ( used to be a powerlifter, now just a fat ass ).

I am very much like you, very large hands, outer thighs seem huge, so I know exactly how you feel.

I guess we just have to take solace in the fact that we do have decent measurements, and our wives are feeling what we put inside them and not what we look like from our side profile in the mirror! :)

I remember when I weighed over 330 pounds, I could not see my dick at all, especially sideways in the mirror. Lose weight, guys. You will be surprised how much dick is hiding in there.

Damn right, Big Girtha! I know if would quit being lazy and drop down to about 210, I wouldn’t be worried about this at all.

Lately I’ve realized that the percepted penis size has so much to do with the size of the body it’s on (relatively speaking, right?), that i think a HUGE PE tool for me would just be losing some FREAKIN’ weight!!!!

I hope this doesn’t discourage you; but I have good measured length, very low body fat and I still look pathetic in that mirror side view!

Touché Jim.

Looking at your profile pic, it occurs to me some of us just have a Butt-Ugly profile.

I guess I’ll just keep being a fat ass, then. ;)

Usually looking in a mirror at the side view is your best view of your actual size. It is a much better perspective than looking straight down at it.


The primary goal of PE should be to make your penis as healthy as possible in both form and function. If you do that, increased size will follow.

Perception is everything.

Your brain determines what you perceive in body image. Losing body weight definitely will help improve comparison image.

I look fine in the mirror (sideways, frontal shot). However, I wish I could gain more weight and have a bigger chest.

We humans are never satisfied! lol

(starting: Jun 2007) 5.75" BPEL x 5" EG / (Sept 11, 2011) 6.375" BPEL x 5.125" EG / (July 1st, 2014) 6.25" BPEL x 5.125" EG (lost a bit of size)

Mypseudonym, I feel your pain bro.

I too am in the same boat and have been busting my butt in the gym for the past 2 months trying to get in shape, along with playing sports (soccer) and eating & sleeping right.

My overall weight has not gone down that much but my overall fat levels have decreased immensely. I’ve gone from a borderline 40-42” inch waist to a borderline 36-38” waist. My thighs have reduced in size considerably and are firm and strong (though still on the large side thus the reduced size perception from the side)

I’ve only started and will keep going, pushing on and feel great for it but I’m not happy with how my penis looks from the side, never have done and possibly never will but it shan’t discourage me. Incidentally I am starting to like how my penis looks from the top. The reduced fat pad, coupled with the pe workouts and increased blood flow have me looking Shane Diesel like at times, in terms of girth and meatiness.

But still, I desire more!! More I tells thee!

I’m sure CS prominence comes into play here. My side view has always sucked visually in regards to girth, yet my top side and underside views look thick as hell.

You are already a “monster size” kooljohn, over 8x6.

I agree. Bigger guys tend to “hide” their size. I have seen big chubby guys who are 260lbs+. Their flaccid look small due to fat pad, and their erection look average, but when in fact, when they do bone-press measure, the true size reveals to 7”+ (above-average easily).

kooljohn, your current measurements are very good. The fact that you’re still having the same issue as me is somewhat sobering because I’m wondering if I will still feel the same when I catch up to you. I bet if you continue to lose weight that you will find that your size will begin to look far better.

I think it is pretty easy to say that a bigger man needs a bigger penis to still look impressive (especially from the side). This puts a little bit of pressure on us bigger guys not only to lose weight but also shoot a little higher concerning our size goals because we’re going to need it to compete with our smaller framed counterparts. This isn’t a terrible problem, it’s just more reason to go all out in working on our physical prowess.
