7x6 Large or what?

it may not look large to you, but objectively legit 6” penis girth is rare and it is very large/huge. Objectively wide as well.

Based on my experience, for everyday fucking I’d say they prefer 6-6.5” x 5-5.5”. I am not a clown dick at 8x6.25, but my wife and the girlfriend before seem to wear out from everyday rides. On the other hand when I was single, girls would sometimes approach me after speaking to a friend I had been with. Also, the on-line hook ups where the girl was looking for a big(ish) cock experience were great fun, but again, for everyday fucking a smaller unit is probably better.

On a similar line, I have read a few interviews with porn chicks who said their favorite porn cocks were Mark Davis,who is probably 7x6 or 6.25, Mr. Pete, who is maybe 7x5.5-5.75, and Mr. Marcus among black guys. I know Marcus is big, but certainly not as big as Lex or Mandingo. So the guys who are large, but not super huge, are also preferred by porn stars, it seems. Also, the girls interviewed seemed to unanimously prefer average length and somewhat thicker than average cocks in their private lives. I don’t remember which girls because it was a long time ago when I was into porn. Kami Andrews was one for sure. I have heard Marie Luv go on about Mark Davis being a great stud,too (I can’t stand his scenes personally).

I appreciate where you are coming from. And I think that you definitely make a good point. It is easy to let your mind tell you something that contradicts reality.. And it is usually easier to accept and believe. I don’t think I am alone in the perception vs reality battle.

OK … I have read this thread and the “realistic view of penis size” thread and I have lulled myself into an understand that is average (5.5 - ish), what is big (7.5-ish) and what is huge (8.5-ish and up)

I have also looked at all of the surveys and bell curves that assure me that the 8.5 and up group represents less than 2% of the population.

Then I read this “Mister Poll” survey (http:// www.misterpoll.com/polls/5407/results) … I had seen it before … but there are a few inconsistencies that nag at me.

On the one hand … if you look at question number 13, it appears that the poll categorizes what is average, big and huge similarly to what we seem to agree upon in this forum.

But then on the other hand if you look at question 6, the pool suggests that 34% of the women in the survey have had a 10+ inch partner and over half have had a 8.5 inch partner.
How is that possible if the reported distribution of 8.5 inchers is as low as we seem to think?

More surprising is question 7 that suggests that 42% of the women have had a partner with a 6.5 inch girth … I thought that 6.5+ inch girths were exceptionally rare.

These big dick(ed) dudes must be fucking an awful lot of women !!!

So my question is: Is this poll flawed? Are these women lying or wrong? or is the other data that we look at flawed?

Well, as to whether the data we look at is flawed, lots of sex therapists etc believe it is flawed. They thing the reported averages in the studies are LARGER than actual average. Because of self-selection bias:

Self-selection bias
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-selection_bias

In statistics, self-selection bias arises is any situation in which individuals select themselves into a group, causing a biased sample with nonprobability sampling. It is commonly used to describe situations where the characteristics of the people which cause them to select themselves in the group create abnormal or undesirable conditions in the group.

Applied to Penis size studies:

What’s the average penis size?
by Dr. Petra Boynton
http://www.mansized.co.uk/answers/w…-penis-size/a15 (article no longer on the net)

Hang on a second though…

Before you reach for the tape measure, it’s worth knowing that most sex researchers and therapists don’t trust these figures.

The reason? They’re based on measurements from laboratory studies where men knew they were participating in research to see how their knobs measured up.

This means guys who were worried about size were less likely to participate, whilst guys who thought they had big schlongs were more than happy to waggle them under researchers noses.

So most researchers, therapists and doctors suspect the ‘average’ penis size figures obtained in research (and widely quoted) are at least an inch larger than they should be. This is because research on penis size is skewed in favour of men who are happy to be measured.

====

As to whether the women were wrong or lying in that poll:

I would say the general consensus here is that most women are poor at guesstimating size. Of course there are many exceptions - women who have a more scientific bent or work in a field that involves measurement are much better.

There are lots of threads about this on thunders, and there is more than one guy with 7inch length whose girlfriend told him that he was 9inches.

Another thing that factors into it - contradictory measurement methodology. Size studies measure ruler on top, from base to tip. That is how we measure at thunders. But women see your penis and guesstimate size from multiple views - visible penis from side, visible penis from bottom, as well as visible penis from the top. When I measure my visible penis from the side, I get almost 8”.

I tried to visit that survey, but the first thing it asked me to do was “disable safe mode”. So got out of it quick.

I ass-ume it is an internet poll. Internet polls are notoriously unreliable.

For for the reasons above, if I am going to go from anecdotal evidence, I am more likely to take the word of our gay and bisexual thunders members:

northmiamitop - Real Average Must Be Bigger

Five inches is MUCH more common in my experience than eight. I think 6 is overstating the average. Starting at 6 inches, I have seen that more guys’ dicks were smaller than me than bigger. And I have seen plenty of dick. (I might be seeing a reverse selection bias though. There are those gay men who are only interested in a big dick. I could care less about size, so maybe smaller guys who aren’t hooking up with the size queens are more likely to hook up with me.)

But since I have been PEing, I’m better at measuring with my hands. In the last six months, I’ve only seen one 8 inch dick. That means they aren’t even a little bit common.

I’m combining these three posts:

Be very careful what you believe.

<SNIP>

How many erect dicks do I think I’ve seen in the flesh? I don’t know, I’ve never kept count or even really thought about it much. If I said I’d seen 3 a year for the last 20 years, that would give a sample size similar to many of the surveys that get discussed here.

Lange Jan kindly posted some typical survey results above; I’ll use his link:
http://wwwu.edu.uni-klu.ac.at/amikl…ck/answer19.htm ON EDIT: THIS IS A DEAD LINK

Looking at these results, I’d say although they vary, they are probably not far off. If that sounds ambiguous I’ll try to qualify it.

<SNIP>

If you want my honest opinion on length taking in all the above points, I’ve seen lots of dicks that ‘appear’ to be around 5” to 6” long, most of the time. The same dicks at absolutely full arousal would appear 5.5” to 6.5”. Bearing in mind that I have only ever slept with guys who were/are in pretty good shape, you could add another half inch or so on average for bone pressing, giving a bone pressed average length of 6” to 7”. My variance of average here is one inch. What’s the distribution above and below this average? Check the Kinsey study in the above link. I’d have to say the percentages are as close to accurate as you will get.

Girth perception also varies a lot depending on the shape of the penis and the angle I am looking from. If someone has a wide dick, it looks girthy from the top or bottom. If someone has a deep dick it looks girthy from the side. If someone has a round dick it may be quite girthy but not really look thick from any angle. Dicks ‘feel’ much girthier in the hand when they are rock hard than when they are 90% hard, so again it is difficult to judge. All I can do is imagine what percentage of dicks have felt thicker or thinner than my own. My estimated guess at average girth would be 4.8”. I would give a girth variance of 0.3” below and 0.4” above this figure for girths I would expect a guys dick is likely to be when I first see it, so anything from 4.5” to 5.2” would be fairly common. A little above or below these figures would not surprise me, but much outside them would.

<SNIP>

As I said in my first post, I’m sure I’ve never seen a genuine 8” NBP dick. Maybe 10% of the dicks I’ve seen have been larger than I would have expected and 6-8% have been smaller. What I would ‘expect’ means neither particularly large nor particularly small, for the person it was attached to. That goes for length and girth.

Sorry I can’t be more scientifically accurate, but look at it this way…. If you had/have slept with ‘lots’ of women, you would be able to tell me what the typical size of breasts you had seen were, approximately. But you probably could not put numbers to how many were 36C, 38D, 32A, 42DD, 34B, 34C etc.

Hope that helps.

As I’ve gotten older and more self-secure, I’ve also come to think that for most women, an average or above-average-but-not-huge penis is probably ideal for frequent, satisfying sexual encounters with lots of versatility possible (quickies, marathon sessions, and so forth). I’ve also come to think that penis size is way, way down on the list of things that women care about in a partner. Basically I now agree with the things that most of the wise old farts have been saying here for a long time ;)


Please :donatecar to Thunder's Place to keep it running.

I am known by women at work to have a “9 or 10 inch cock” based on comments from a couple of female co-workers I’ve messed around with over the years. The funny thing is that I was actually under 8” bpel at the time. Maybe the girth confused their estimation skills or maybe I was bigger than a prior self proclaimed 8 incher. However, my actual size never came up even though both commented that it was big. I used to tell girls who asked how big it is that I never measured it. No one ever whipped out a ruler or measuring tape!

I agree with that statement, and if a guy is anywhere remotely around average he should have no problem pleasing the vast majority of women..
BUT, I think a good number of guys on here are doing this for themselves, myself included. I have no misconceptions that my current penis can’t please, I just want to be bigger.

I made a pretty good thread about this on PEGym, basically ranting about how guys lie and women don’t actually measure to detect the difference. How someone I was with said she was with a 10” x 8” and proved to be grossly incorrect

Most girls are like this and have no idea.

This thread is so depressing lol if I can hit 5.75 girth I will be extremely happy. I think that’s where really thick begins and huge in the real world. I’ve gotten compliments on thickness though just at 5.3 girth.


Mr B. Dog finds that if he whacks his dick with a hammer, it turns purple, and shrinks up for a week. He loses his erections completely.

I agree and I am hoping for around there too. I’m not even bothering with length at the moment because girth is what matters for me.


Starting measurements: 6" BPEL x 4.5" EG

Current measurements (4/2012): 6.25" BPEL x 4.75" EG

Goal measurements: 7" BPEL x 6" EG

I agree with most the people here in that the answer is subjective to different peoples views.

A lot of women hear large and automatically think 9 inches, to that I say good luck getting in bed with those ‘size queens’.

However people like you (and me) tend to categorise your unit into small, medium, large and extra large as you would a McDonald’s meal. What I think constitutes a large in NB would be 7X6 -8X6, from anything over 8 inches I think its considered extra large, like some commenters have replied before no girl can claim you have a small dick with those measurements anyway so you have security of that, congrats.


NBPEL

Start> 6 x 4.5

Goal> 7 x 5.5

Is 7x6 big, yep no doubt.IMO a 7x5.5 is the beginning of big.when I reach 7 it will be a true milestone a time of celebration.iread on another website that only 13% of males have a 7 inch weener.now at 6 5/16 x 5 5/8

Originally Posted by IHateCrust

There are guys here with 7.5 or so who have said women tell them their dicks are 9 inches.

The majority of women can not guesstimate size that well. Plus we measure top down. They guesstimate also from side view, and bottom view.

So that would make 7 an 8.5’er

And despite the naive porno-viewers here, legit 6 inch girth is huge.
