Sexual Urban Myths

(117 Posts)
UrbanMyths Tue 05-Feb-08 16:12:55

I've heard a number of urban myths when it comes to sex and inparticular...mens willies but I have little experience myself! so for a light hearted thread I wondered if we could "pool" our knowledge to see what myths were true and which were crap? grin and yes...I have changed my name for this! blush

Ok I'll start with a few, feel free to add any more that you've heard.

"Big feet means big willy" - I havne no experience of men with big feet but my ex had small feet and a small willy so may be some truth in that?

"Men with ginger hair have small willies" - this is true in my experience, I once went out with a ginger lad who had a tiny willy.

"Black men have bigger willies" - No experience of this...can anyone shed any light?

I can't think of anymore at the moment but if you know any sex related urban myths, post them!

(I'm not trolling, just having a laugh!)

I have read that the WHO do supply condoms in different sizes in different parts of the world. Bigges are for Africa, smallest for asia, with Europe/ Us in between.

But I'm not googling for the reference, I'm too scared! smile

When i had my son and a group of us were sitting around and doing the usual baby things including changing nappies i remarked on the size of a friends ds. She said it was just a smaller version of her DH!! Well we all had a giggle then and we agreed that this was the case - proportion wise they matched the fathers.

That was ok until in my work in a hospital i was with a black child (who was with his dad) and when i saw the size of his i just looked at the dad in wonder!!!

So i too would like to be enlightened.

Also does size really matter?

big feet - deffo not
I haven't been with a ginger guy
black men - as above

nailpolish Tue 05-Feb-08 16:20:51

dh has big feet - and a huge nob
i ahve been out with a man with small feet/hands - his nob was tiny
also went out with a ginger lad - again small(ish) nob. that was eclipsed by the ginger pubes, tho
no exp of black men

nailpolish Tue 05-Feb-08 16:21:25

and yes size is everything

sinemacula Tue 05-Feb-08 16:23:53

Yes, size does matter but it's also true that some men know better than others how to make the most of what they've got iyswim. I once slept with a guy who was a bit challenged in the trouser department (mainly girth) but he wasn't really small but he just used to go hump,hump,hump and it did absolutely nothing for me grin

The length of a mans willy is the same measurement as his hand span from tip of thumb to tip of little finger.

hecate Tue 05-Feb-08 16:25:37

Yes and I seem to recall that many men with huge shlongs seem to think they can trigger a multiple orgasm just by slapping you upside the head with it. hmm

Blandmum Tue 05-Feb-08 16:27:47

Size isn't everything
But you can't make butter with a tooth pick!

indeed, MB

NotQuiteCockney Tue 05-Feb-08 16:31:55

Ok, all these things are generalisations. And there are men with giant hands and feet and small willies, and vice versa.

The race thing is a bit more complicated - I'm pretty sure I've seen research that the flaccid length varies quite a lot between races, but the erect length varies less. So yeah, on average, Black men have bigger penises - quite a bit bigger in the locker room, but not that much bigger where it matters, iyswim.

(I know nothing of ginger men.)

NotQuiteCockney Tue 05-Feb-08 16:32:31

And of course most of the stats are about length, and (by and large) women care more about girth.

Maidamess Tue 05-Feb-08 16:32:37

If you want to see how good a man is in the sack, watch him dance.

Mummy2TandF Tue 05-Feb-08 16:33:01

What about the one that thinner men have bigger dinks? blush and the bigger the man is chubby wise the smaller the dink? .... no experience but could this just be the size it looks next to their bodies iyswim?

NotQuiteCockney Tue 05-Feb-08 16:34:39

I think some degree of fat on the gut can end up "burying" the base of the penis, iyswim, so they effectively lose a bit of the length.

I doubt that losing weight makes penises any thicker though.

NotQuiteCockney Tue 05-Feb-08 16:35:37

Oh, and of course, fat produces estrogen, which would (I think?) have a negative effect on erection quantity?

nailpolish Tue 05-Feb-08 16:36:05

i agree aobut the dancing

jofeb04 Tue 05-Feb-08 16:39:46

Had a relationship with a ginger bloke, and he was very big

Had a relationship with a black guy, who was bigger than average, but, when erect it wasn't anything to shout about
