There’s a lot they want you to know.
I remember as a teenager I had a friend whose boyfriend had a tiny penis.
“I’m starving,” he announced as he entered the room one afternoon. “I only ate a sausage roll half the size of my dick today, so you can imagine.”
I could imagine, but she didn’t have to.
Many men have (self-assessed) ‘small’ penises. Some are embarrassed about it, some are indifferent about it and it turns out that some are damn proud of their teenie peens.
In fact, there is an entire online community dedicated to small penis-havers who get off on having their lack of inches ridiculed.
There’s even a name for the practice, it’s called ‘Small Penis Humilation’ or SPH for short (lols). There are also numerous websites, Reddit threads and a Tumblr where these men can post their pictures of their phalluses, just to have them publicly shamed.
(Warning: only click here if you’re ready to see some seriously little dicks.)
Over at Gawker, some budding young journalist tracked down four such men and asked them to reveal exactly what life was like lacking the bulge. (You can read the full interviews here.)
All of the men were straight(ish), married or in a stable, long-term relationship, a couple had kids and all of them had a fetish for having their junk degraded in some way.
But wait just one minute, how small are we talking here?
The men’s penises range from 4.5 inches long when erect (that’s a bit under 12cm) to the size of a small acorn or an iPod shuffle when flacid.
AKA, pretty small.
And all of them became aware of their short comings pretty early on in puberty.
“I first realized the difference in dick size before puberty,” Marc explains. (Just FYI, that’s not his real name)
“My dad used to take my older brother and I to play racquetball, and afterwards we would shower in the communal shower. I always felt awkward being naked with other guys, but my dad didn’t care, so I tried not to care.”
