Backstory - I am a namechanging regular who has unfortunately taken the day off work to get pissed with have a long lunch with a very old and much beloved friend.

The main topic of our discussion - after we'd done with children and handbags - was does size matter?

We have some collective experience here, and we came to the conclusion that it does matter. In fact it matters quite a lot. We think that short is impossible, that long and thin is okay, but actually big and chunky is best.

So AIBU to think that size matters?

You can flame me, I don't particularly care.

i think it does matter, or at least helps to feel fulfilled. If technique is rubbish tho, it is a useless tool.

BUT, i have slept with someone who had a shorter and slimmer one than i was expecting, and initially i thought okay, but he was bloody great.

Not if you had c-sections!

It bloody matters to me

Did before children

Having good hands helps

This sort of conversation works best when everyone is drunk of course

Which probably isn't the case at 5pm

Skill can be learned size well that's an added bonus

Yes, size does matter to an extent. Or more thickness. Anything within the norm is fine, it's when it's tiny it's a problem to feel anything and I feel so sorry for the small minority of men who have a "micropenis" - it must be awful for them.

Conversation with new boyfriend about his size was that basically, yes, he had a decent cock size but more important that he was 'githy' (especially after 3 kids) blush

SaggyHairyArse Fri 14-Jan-11 17:22:40

That should read 'girthy'

Jaquelinehyde Fri 14-Jan-11 17:24:35

Girth...It is all about the Girth.

Yes, it does indeed matter. As others have said, especially after having children.

I birthed two ten pounders and was really concerned that manshape would feel it was a bit like shaking a stick in a cave, but he assures me it's very much fine. And he's more than adequate wink

I also think it's about technique too - i've known one or two that seemed to think the size of the beast was enough - they had no... technique.

hmmmm, well, it depends doesnt it. For a one night stand or fuck buddy - size matters. Often a one nighter is a bit fumbled and rushed anyway so that takes away from lack of technique etc.

Long term relationship - it doesn't matter a hoot. My partner is small to average, but its never been an issue, as he says - it makes me scream grin its all about exploring each other and finding out what works, most women dont orgasm via penetration anyway, so i would be more interested in whether a man can curl his tongue than the size of his penis to be honest

Girth, yes girth

That's important

valiumredhead Fri 14-Jan-11 18:24:34

Ewwwwwwwww 'long and thin' ick.

GIRTH ( or what totallytrllied said grin

Ooh you sluts, men should come to mumsnet more often.

Or possibly not.

claireybear82 Fri 14-Jan-11 18:29:43

depends! lol had a bf who had a HUGEEEEE one, it looked like it'd been genetically modified. but he had NO IDEA what to do with it. it was such a waste to woman kind lol!! it was like having a ferrari and not knowing how to drive. had a medium one and he was fantastic. i suppose ideally you would combine the 2 ;)

emmyloulou Fri 14-Jan-11 18:29:56

Yes size matters. I had the misfortune once of having a one off witht a small, small man who was awful gah the memories eugh.

Totallytrollied Fri 14-Jan-11 18:50:12

We never compared the relative merits of short and chunky versus long and thin.

But still, I'm glad to see that the might of MN is in agreement that size does matter

Even without the benefit of several bottles glasses of wine

I read ur messages with a huge smile on my face ladies grin

Told myself i was not gonna comment....

Cant help myself, as i have to agree- Yes size does matter first time initially but its how 'you' use it that will prove worthy over time. Its 50,50... as was said before..you could have the biggest beast ever seen but if if they cant work it, what a let down.

Not to say i have settled for a small one tho. Im v happy with my average girthy one!!! wink I like to describe mine as an All-rounder.

Thats IMPORTANT

PMSL @ Clairebear's "genetically modified" grin

Was discussing disappointing experiences with another friend and she said "it was like a cock, only smaller"

Karaishere Fri 14-Jan-11 19:35:57

brightlightsandpromises Fri 14-Jan-11 19:50:01
