It's so refreshing to see someone with the balls I mean penis to do a doc on men's body image issues.  And kudos to journalist Lawrence Barraclough for showing his small penis on camera and having a cast made of his smaller than average phallus. 

In the end - just like women - porn has ruined our self image:

That was a great video.
 Yes porn has ruined a lot of men's perception as to what is a normal dick size. I would be the first to admit that I wish mine was longer, thicker and shot further than any other guy's even though the women I have slept with have given Him the complements of being the perfect fit and feel. Lawrence was right about men being competitive and wanting to be  the biggest cock on the block. In the end men have come to terms with what they have as in some cases they may mutilate or worse lose their little friend.

Such a great documentary

Thank you for posting this video. It is so sad to me how men, woman, everyone, feels like what they are born with is not "good enough." Thank you Lawrence for starting a conversation. 

That bloke has balls.

It was interesting watching this doco. As a guy with a what i feel as a small flacid dick but average erect one, It got me thinking of how many of those people who took photos of their own penises maybe got themselves worked "half up", So they can still say it was flacid, but it's not the tiny cowering thing resulting from a cold shower. 
I do however beleave that porn has made a damaging impact of what men think their dick size should be. But lots of women still say that "hey what can i say, I love a big cock."It wil be a while before men truely imbrace their size and be happy with what they are given. Also  he hit the nail on the head when he sopke about the pecking order of things. That is a blokes biggest worry. being at the bottom of the food chain.

PORN has also ruined a woman's perception of what an average
size is...i see this ALL THE TIME in the net world and beyond."Some" of you (like men) have gotten your heads too full of that slop.Social engineering.

Excellent documentary

I just watched the entire video, and I'm glad to say that it was worth every minute. As a man with a small flacid penis-1" (yet almost 5" @ full-staff) I think that this video/documentary should be a MUST SEE for at minimum every man and most if not all women! Leave it to a Brit to make such a wonderful high quality documentary. Thanks for posting this.

How Ironic

It is somewhat ironic that this subject is being shown and discussed on a web site which largely is involved with female related sexual matters.   I applaud your "equal" treatment of BOTH sexes.  And I must say, I have received much enjoyment, and I have learned a great deal about female sexuality by reading the various postings on your web site.  Perhaps, the bottom line is that in this day and age, women truyly are more liberated, at least when it comes to their bodies, and to their "pursuit of happiness" :-) 

Self image hah

The destruction of my self image began and ended, not with my exposure to porn, but with my first sexual experience. I was 15 at the time. My 15 y/o girl friend and I were in her house, stripped naked, when she laughed at my small penis. I went home, penis tucked between my legs.

It would be another 8 years or so before I saw my first porn star naked, on the screen. No. Porn did not destroy my self image. A girl did.

48 years later, I am still dealing with this issue.

Love this!

What an amazing documentary.  At the end, I found myself hoping it was longer so that I could enjoy Lawrence a bit more.  What a great sense of humor he has - he's funny, silly, quirky... But he accomplished something, and I think it's wonderful that he can have that sense of satisfaction because he DID get men talking about their penises to each other.

I hope that someday men will realize that women will love them and want to be with them and sleep with them for a variety of reasons - and penis size isn't the reason why most women will sleep with a man, I think.  My fiance worries about his size - even though he's what I would consider to be average at around 5-6".  I was surprised when he recently admitted this because we've been together for almost five years.  I never knew that he worried about the size of his penis, and he has considered trying male enhancement pills in order to make himself bigger and more satisfying to me.  I, however, have never once said a word to him that would imply that he's not a satisfying lover - because he is.  I think we have a great sex life, and I've always been very satisfied with him as a lover.  He makes sure to give me pleasure and even goes the extra mile sometimes when I'm having trouble crossing the finish line.

But I love him for so many other reasons.  Honestly, his penis size has nothing to do with my feelings for him.  And that's what I hope men will someday understand.  There's more to a man than just what his genitals look like in the way that there's more to a woman than the size of her breasts or how tight her vagina is.
A step in the right direction.

big is better

It's always the small ones who gets asked what they think, be it women with a small boyfriend or men with small ones.
 
As someone with a great deal of threesome experience, and a bigger one, I can testify to big beeing better. It's simply about physics. Having short legs make people run slower. Having big strong hands makes an awesome massage easier. Beeing punched by a big boxing dude hurts you more than the girl next door.
 
People are different, and somebody is always better than you. If you're average, 50% are potentially bigger than you, and yes, an inch in length and thickness is part of the equation called sex.

Fit is more important than size

I would not like to get fucked by some 10 inch dick that is as thick as a tree trunk. I want something that will fill me up nicely that my vaginal and PC muscles can contract against when I have an orgasm. 5-7 inches is perfect for me. Another woman might want more or less. It's fun to play with a small flacid penis and watch it grow, it's fun to have intercourse and feel the dick swell up as the man approaches orgasm. But men, smart women want more than your dicks. We want your lust for us, skillful hands on our bodies, and tongues that lap pussy like a thirsty dog. We might also enjoy your company in a non sexual manner. Even my husband pulled the "I wish my dick was bigger for you" crap. Dude, really? You can't tell I think your penis is perfect for me?

I am virtually speechless

Mon, 09/26/2011 - 18:07

I watched this video entirely and I am speechless. I am a American woman BTW. As I watched the movie, my emotions where up and down like a roller coaster. At first I thought it was funny how someone would create sunch a candid video. I mean how often do we see a man bare his all and be vulnerable for everyone to see? To do that takes an enormous about of courage. Then to have the ability to bring the story full circle leaving the men feeling connected with an understanding that they are  all unique and perfect "As is". It was awesome!
As I watched, I have to tell you, I was so sad that Jared(that is his name right? I am bad with names, sorry) felt as though he needed to go to those extremes. As a woman I will be totally open here, Jared is a very handsome and sexy man.
When his front door opened and I initially saw him, my first reaction was "Dang"!.. He was beautiful..As the interview started, I was amazed that he felt because he had never heard women brag about him the way that  he had heard women speak of other men( when they thought no one was listening to them, mind you), that he was not good enough and needed to do this surgery.
When Lawrence asked him of his size and he stated he was 7 inches and he referred himself as a banana dick,I thought to myself: "Is this guy serious"?. 
Suddenly I began to think of what has happend in this man's life that would make him feel that he needed to go to those extreme measures? As I listened, I felt so sad inside. I honestly wanted to cry.
 When the video footage was shot of him the next day prior to his surgery, just laying there nude. There layed this beautiful man, with yes I will say it, he had a perfect and intact penis(with a very nice set of family  jewels I will say too). I was thinking:  "This man truly does not need this operation. I found myself wishing that him and I were friends and could have  helped him realize that this surgery was wrong. A small voice inside of me was saying,"Please do not do this".
I sat and watched just wishing this procedure would not continue unfortunately this man never realized that he was awesome just the way he was.
As I said earlier, Jared based his penile surgery on the fact that he had never over heard a woman speak that way of him as he heard other women speak of other men. I have to say something. I have had several loving and  sexually satisfying relationships with men of all penis sizes and in my life time. I have had to deal with men who bragged about themselves sexually. With that being said,  I am sharing with you all, that  I would not boast outloud to others where he could hear meor to him directly on how great he was in fear of swelling his inflated ego any more.
I know women and society as a whole put pressure on men for them to talk a good game, but for me, that is a turn off and when a man does that even if he was they best, I would not boast just so I do not over inflate his ego.
Now,  but would I tell my best friend that this guy that I was crazy about just totally blew me away in bed?... Absolutely... and that could very well be what Jared was over hearing listening women's conversations. I can say as a woman, that admitting to a man that he rocked is a little scary.. 
Unless Jared was a total dud in bed, meaning the whole love making package was awful, from his kissing to his foreplay, straight to the time he penetrates her(totally passive during intercourse,we want to feel your penis tear us up, yup we do), any decent woman would be thrilled to have him in her life.
This brings me to something else that bothered me in the movie clip, his new girlfriend of a couple months, not only did she not try to stop him and seemed to be okay with it and seemed to be the same kind of shallow woman that had never reassured him in the past that he was wonderful as is.
Anyhow, I just want you guys out there to know, that I am sorry for the pressure that society puts on men with feeling inadequate, so much that it wears on your confidence as a man and leaving you feeling like you are not good enough..  Please know that you are special just the way you are and every man hood is unique and special. When you are with the right woman, she will love your penis whether it is 4 inches or 8. Whether you are intact or circumcised. It won't matter.
Also know that women love that when a man is smaller in size that he makes up for it with talent.. :)  To be honest with you,what good is a 8 inch penis if that is all it is? Women want talent, a man who works hard to please... men need to fuck it like they own it , not like they are renting it and afraid they are going to break it....

Documentary

I was going to get round to watching this documentary on here, but as luck would have it, it was repeated on tv last night (here in England).

I found the ending in the art gallery so positive. I was genuinely thrilled to see the people who'd gone to see the photograph exhibition open up and discuss their penises, and one step further, go into the booth to take a polaroid there and then. We're getting used to women talking about embracing their genitals and it was wonderful to see men doing the same.

I agree with this. A single comment from a real woman will do more damage than a 1000 porn movies.
Even in this documentary, the few scenes with actual women they make comments that enforce this.
The women doing the molds of their ideal penis do big ones while making fun of small ones.
Jareds wife says she wouldn't marry a guy because he was "small"
the nurses operating on him say he's on the small side.

If the object of this doc was to put men at ease about their size I'd say it did the opposite.

Hi there..
I just read your post and I can sympathize for you on being emotionally bruised or crushed by the things women(in your case a girl) say.
However, not ALL women are like that. I responded previously on Jared's decision to get his penis enlarged and if you read back you will see I wrote something to the effect of "As Jared layed nude on that operating table , I had seen that he had a very beautiful and intact penis"..
I also stated my sincere apologizies for a society that is ignorant.
As for you, I am sorry that you have had this experience too. Please do not let it crush you permanetly. I admit, women are brained washed about two things . #1 that men should be circumcised and #2 that they should be large. Once a woman has experienced a man who is of average size that is eager to please and blows them away in bed, they no longer put a large penis as such a high priority on there list. Being a great lover comes from within, not just on you penis.
My feelings are this: "Is it long enough to reach(from his body to mine) and big enough to feel? if so all is good. I have had sex with men whom where very large and I learned quickly that just because it is big, does not mean it is good.(usually large men assume because they are large, they do not need to make a effort. So not true!).
Well again, I am sorry.. Can I ask how old are you now? You mentioned this happend when you were 15.

After watching this I have to say it was rather good. I will have to say that I am in the adverage size group. But lets think about the women, all they have is a hole..... lol, no pun intended, but think about it, its a hole that we stick our dicks in. They have a couple more holes that sometime we stick our dicks in, but the main one is the all mighty pussy. Yeah, some are fat, thin, bushy, bald, tight, loose, wet, dry, but the bottom line ....... its a hole !!   And the same goes for the guys..... its a dick,  some are big, little, thick, thin, bushy, bald, but the bottom line is...... its a dick !!  And the dick is made to go in the hole !!  My first sexual encounter with a girl was when I was 15 and I`m now 49, and through out the years I guess I`ve been with around 9 different women and not any of them ever complained on how I was in bed with them. They always came back for more. If a guy can make a woman cum, orgasam, get off, explode, or what ever else you wanna call it, then she is happy. Most women if it really comes down to it will say it doesnt really matter about size, but if asked about it in a poll or other type of questionair, they will say , sure i want a bigger cock. In todays time we all want better, man or woman. And its not in the sex talk either, its in everything, jobs, home, cars, boats, etc. We all want bigger and better.  Its all in how one percieves oneself. If a guy can make his woman feel loved and honored, and she truely cares and loves him as a person then size shouldnt be a big issue. Sure, she might be thinking.... I wish he was bigger, but on the flip side, hes thinking...... Damn, I wish she had bigger tits !!  So its a two way street. We can always find faults in one another, male or female. Its the love and caring part that makes up for the faults that we all have. Nobody is perfect !!!!   Key-word there is "body".

Brilliant documentary

This doc was fascinating! As a woman you don't think of men having self esteem issues about their sexual parts. Woman have so many issues due to how we are portrayed in the media. But never seeing other penises except maybe in porn does the same thing to men.

Considering that women don't have vaginal orgasms but clitoral orgasms, does penis size even matter?

Just as Betty and Carlin get women to look at their vulvas, men obviously need the same exercise to feel good about their genitals, even if they have the masturbation part down pat.

Maybe men need sexual education groups too to raise their sexual self esteem.
