13.12 cm / 5.16 in (Oh, I went there…)

Hello ladies, Gentlemen,

Today we will try to penetrate through the layers of denial, over confidence, nagging doubts and hopefully, if all consent, we will come to some conclusion. We will keep this safe and respectful, so no need to worry. The only naked thing you’ll see will hopefully be the truth…

Let’s get it on.

Men (and women alike, admit it ladies) have been trying to answer a couple of question for a very long time – “Is it big? small? average?” and of course “Does size matter?

A research performed using a population of over 15,000 men around the world claims to answer at least the first. And yes, you’ve guessed it. Just like it says in the title. The average length of the penis is indeed 13.12 cm or 5.16 in, fully erect. If you’re wondering about the circumference, it’s 11.66 cm or 4.59 in. Surprisingly enough, only 2.28% of men have significantly smaller penis. The same percentage of men also have significantly larger one… So there you are…

Of course it might be a bit slanted, The research that is, as it makes sense that men who participated in this research are likely men with enough self-confidence… Now, while bragging about being part of the upper 2.28% is really a dick move, no need to be ashamed of being part of the lower 2.28% either. It’s all cockamamie.

Now that it’s out, The secret that is, let’s get down to business.

I’ve conducted a research on the topic myself. My qualifications? I have one, I can read, I’m on Facebook.

Here are some of my findings:

The percentage of men who claim to be part of the 2.28% “bigger” population is equal to the percentage of male adults in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and Antarctica.

The percentage of the aforementioned population who lied, is equal to (percentage of male adults in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and Antarctica) Minus 2.28%.

The percentage of men admitting to be part of the “shorter” 2.28% is equal to the Toronto Maple Leafs’ chances to win the Stanley cup this year.

So what is big? small? Attempting to answer this question is very similar to answer your partner’s “Did I lose weight?” without repercussions… It’s all about being comfortable with one’s body.

Now, that we non-answered one question, we also kind of answered the other, as besides the man feeling comfortable in or out of his foreskin, there’s his partner who might have preferences. Compatibility and all that jazz.

But if that is the deal breaker then the real problem lies elsewhere.

What do you think?

About the size… Does it matter?

Hello everyone, and thank you new followers. I shouldn’t take that for granted of course, so if I haven’t told you lately that I love you, there you go 🙂

As you may have noticed, we’ve been talking about matters of life or death here lately.

So if I may (and let’s face it, I may. My blog my rules!), Allow me to indulge in a question that’s on many people’s mind which is not a life/death scenario, yet intrigues men and women alike. The question of… sizedoes it matter?

See, from my experience, these things come in all sizes and colors. There are big, thick ones. There are big but thin ones. Small and thick, small and thin. Personally I don’t care, as long as they give me enough pleasure. Of course, there are times when I look at one and say “How the hell am I going to take all this in???”

I’ve heard people say “but it’s too short.” or “It’s too thin”. I’ve heard people complain that it should be bigger. Hell, I even heard people say it should be shorter. Much shorter. But really, what counts? The quality or quantity?

Let me ask you people this then – What do you intend to do with this thing? Well, can you do it regardless of size?

Oh, excuse me just a second.

Just so we’re all on the same page here (pun intended) – we are talking about books here. You knew that, right?

What else did you think I was going on about? Oh, do you kiss your mama with that mouth!?

But I digress.

So. Sizes.

As I said, I don’t really mind how thick a book is. I’ve read a series of 4 books, with north of 800 pages each by Tad Williams and enjoyed them just as I enjoyed a 180 pages book by Ursula Le Guin.

The answer to this question, at least in my book (notice the crafty word-play…) is shorter than a novel.
Your book should be as long as it takes to give the reader your story from start to end, but no longer than that. Now, putting aside style, editing, and other aspects of writing without which there shouldn’t even be a book to begin with…

Consider these:

  • Your plot is complete, from the introduction and through to a satisfactory conclusion.
  • Your sub-plot/s have been resolved.
  • Your characters, mainly the protagonist and the few other significant ones have gotten the chance to come to life.
  • Your story delivered on its premise.
  • Your book includes only what is necessary to move your story forward

Well, in that case, does it matter if it took a 100 pages or 1000? Well, putting aside questions like “Who would buy a book with 1000 pages?”
Of course, different genres have some “standards” and you might want to think about these points above if you’re way off.

In other words – “Too short” likely means you didn’t tell your story (not all of it), and “Too long” might mean you either should have stopped writing sooner, or you may want to check for “filler” (Those pages where there are a lot of words but little story).

I’m going to stop this post right here, as to not make it too long. If you think it’s too short, and that I missed something, why don’t you tell me about it right here?

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Thank you all for stopping by. I appreciate it year-round.
