    I suspect this is an issue for many, and it is certainly related to porn and a stumbling block when attempting to NoFap.

    *Trigger Warning:
    Due to the nature of this topic, men may feel compelled to note their own measurements. If this is arousing to you, please refrain from reading further or posting. NoFap does NOT allow posting of photos.*

    Definitions:

    Micropenis: A medical term for a penis that is physically smaller than two standard deviations from the norm. In adults this is less than 2.8 inches.

    Small Penis Syndrome: An emerging term in the psychological community for a mental condition in which a man believes he has a small penis, regardless of the actual physical size.

    Body Dysmorphia: A mental health condition where a person spends a lot of time worrying about flaws in their appearance. This can be applicable to any body part, including the penis, for any reason.

    ----------------------------
    Ground Rule:
    1. Please believe others. As noted above, pictures are not permitted. Masturbation for the sake of measurement is not encouraged.
    2. Penis enlargement may be discussed, however, it is not the intention of this thread to promote this activity. Please refrain from linking to penis enlargement sites.

    -------------------------------

    Does anyone else struggle with penis size/ appearance/perception issues?
    Concerned you are too small, or too big, or both?
    Do you feel this contributes to pornography or other problematic behaviors?

    I've lost some weight this year. But when friends tell me they don't consider me fat anymore, I feel skeptical. I mean, I'm still overweight, but how much? I worry about being noticeably fat...

    Being fat can make it appear that your cock is smaller than it really is.

    So, losing weight can create the illusion of a bigger cock! :eek:

    This i identify with. Always my facial bone structure. Always.
    When i identified that "there is something wrong with me" i couldnt get past how i saw myself when i looked in the mirror.

    Throughout life i was told over and over by family that i was "handsome and good looking"

    HA! They were just pitying me because i look like a freak. Thats what i thought.

    Of course there is nothing wrong with the way i look, at least not by what others tell me. But i have a very difficult time looking at myself in the mirror and being happy with what i see.

    I know now that "its all in my head" but i didn't always believe that. My self image has improved somewhat as of lately.

    I think he was just saying that he has body dysmorphia regarding his weight.

    I've heard that if looking in the mirror is a problem, it can help to get rid of the mirror.

    What is extra-abism? Is it like metabolism?

    Not gonna lie, I can admit to the fact that my penis isnt large by any means, if anything its below the average of 4.5 or 5.5 i think. The most important thing that ive learned though is that getting women off isnt purely based on size and while yes size does matter, you gotta control what you can control. If youre insecure you should better yourself physically and mentally, there are penis enlargement exercises through stretching that in the past has shown noticible results for me due to the damage induced via PMO. But you kind of need a bit of PM to do this unfortunately
     
  13. Most everyone here is at least average. And if you go online seeking answers, you're going to find a majority of women who feels it just isn't a big deal. Remember women are very much emotional, and if she loves you, she will likely not even notice an issue.

    Also as I used to weigh almost 400 pounds, plus PMO for 20 years, it always seemed small and shriveled. As I've lost wt and stopped PMO, erections are much more powerful, for lack of a better phrase. I've learned that I'm actually a fair bit larger than average. Who knew at 36 I'd find that out about my body?

    That's the poison in porn. Poison your body and mind. Stop masterbation and lose some weight. 60% of us are obese, if you're reading this odds are you could stand to lose. You may find you're larger than you had believed.

    Maybe you should measure your erection. You might be surprised. It may be longer than you thought.

    When you look straight down your naked body at your erect penis, it often looks smaller at that angle.

  17. No one can inspire you to change, we can motivate with our testimonies, but the desire to stop comes from within you.

    Because you are awesome! If you had a reason to quit before then whatever that was it is still applicable. PMO will not solve whatever problem you think it will solve when it tempts you.

    Be careful. Measuring an erection becomes a reason to PM. And the answer doesn't matter.

    This may be helpful for some, but this sort of thinking irks me. Getting women (plural) off is not my goal. I am married, and I already know what my ONE wife likes.

    Size insecurities are not necessarily rooted in sexual thinking. The problem is that they become a reason to cheat.
