    It’s not the size of the boat, but the motion of the ocean!

    I agree that I wouldn’t want too small or too large. Especially too large. Painful sex would not be fun.

    It matters to me. But only because too small/too large isn’t going to work for me. Normal/a little larger than normal are fine by me.

    It doesn’t matter… within reason.

    If we are talking about an absolutely minute penis then they had better make up for it in lots of other ways! I could probably put up with it, but they would have to be the perfect catch in every other way… helpful, polite… and great in bed. I wouldn’t automatically say no though.

    If we are talking about a penis like a child’s arm (I said in the other thread that I had a friend who dated a guy who was about 9 inches long and as wide as a coke can) then no. I could not put up with that, and I really think that our sex life would suffer. I would rather end up with a man with a small penis than a huge one, because I don’t want to have painful sex for the rest of my life.

    I would guess that it would matter to men to have as large a size as possible, but that to alot of women, it would matter to have a lesser large size. Too big, and it’s not enjoyable/painful.

    I think it does to an extent. I once dated a guy who had a penis the size of a chapstick, NOT KIDDING. It was the same length and girth. It didn’t do a thing for me, so yeah, his was just too small. He made up for it in other ways, but I don’t think I could spend my life with someone like that.

    I’ve never had a “huge” one, but I don’t think I could go for that either. Sex with my FH [whom is normal sized, 6 inches] hurts at the beginning and then feels good. I can’t imagine how a really huge one would feel. I would guess that it would destroy me. No thanks.

    Honestly (TMI),  I do not climax with penetration alone.  I need clitoral stimulation, soooo size really does not apply to my sexual gratification.  I have preferences with what feels better though as far as penetration goes, which is that length is not as hugely important to me as girth.  I mean, I have been with one really teeny tiny guy (think pinky size when fully erect), and it was not the most pleasurable experience, but I think more so than that, it was ‘skinny’!

    I think an extremely tiny penis or an extremely huge penis would be difficult to work with, so I do prefer around average size. Penetration alone doesn’t do a ton for me anyways though,  so penis size doesn’t have much effect on my enjoyment of sex..

    I think girth and a desire to figure out what works for you is what matters more than anything. I dated a guy who was 8+ inches and not only did it hurt but he was convinced that because he was hung, he didn’t really have to know how to use it. Worst sex ever.

    Barbiestylez:  I think anything under 4 inches would be too small, or something really really narrow (i.e. less than an inch in diameter), too big would be anything over 7 inches or wider than 2.5 inches in diameter.  I’ve actually refused to have sex with a guy because he was way too big (think soda can wide) and I thought it would hurt, so I just left.  I guess because he knew he was hung he thought most women would be all over it, so think he was pretty confused lol.

    Barbiestylez:  Most people seem to estimate size on the large size but in the US, the two most respects studies found the average penis size to be 5.1 and 5.6 inches, that means there is a good chance you are labeling 5-% of all guys as too small.

    Barbiestylez:  Hmm, I am curious if you have just been fortunate, or if the way you measure/estimate is different than what they did in the studies.

    Size doesn’t matter to me. Honestly. I’ve only been with Darling Husband and I honestly couldn’t see myself leaving him because of size. if he was 0.5 inches we’d make it work. If he were 10″, we’d make it work. I love him for who he is and couldn’t care less about his penis size.
