another hard to read ( when it shouldn't be ) guardian article .
just give us the info' .
Sorry - I have both - and I had a hangover from hell.
The NHS website says "there is little or no evidence to prove the safety or success of operations to increase penis size. Penis enlargement surgery can have complications and many men are unhappy with the results."
Are you the real Norma Stitz?
Not clickbait, just trying to get a rise out of people.
There's a difference?
I agree. Posting this sort of article in a newspaper is the kind of sensationalist antics that we expect from the Sport. It is unbecoming of a reputable broadsheet. That said, it does kind of illustrate how desperate the situation for the Guardian has become that they're resorting to publishing this kind of thing. As their sales continue to plummet, the Guardian have increasingly adopted the approach of appealing to the base instincts of readers in an attempt to stem the decline. This, while understandable, is a tad self-defeating, as it drives away those who have hitherto been attracted to the Guardian because they want a serious newspaper, and are thus disgusted by the display of frivolity.
The penis enlargement stats are not really surprising, considering Germans enjoy getting nude at the beach which would make it impossible for men to live in the happy illusion that their penis is an impressive size.
Inevitable, given the rise of equality, and given that women are no longer being shouted down and pretending they are disinterested in sex and hot male bodies. Given that the men who preferred to believe that are finally being forced to face reality and that penis size very much does matter to most women. Given that western women generally no longer have to accept being paired off with a man they are repulsed by due to brutal and deliberate economic and societal strictures, rules and laws. Given that women are more free to make their preferences known.
It's long been known and has now been proven that women's sex drives are just as high, if not higher than, those of men. Fascinating book which uses 7 years of scientific evidence to prove just that. If she says she doesn't want sex, it just means she doesn't want it with you - she definitely wants it with the man she is attracted to. http://discussion.theguardian.com/comment-permalink/38449288
The book uses factual and practical research to completely debunk all the myths about women's sexuality some people cling so desperately to. The article and others like it are informative, the book is better of course.
The closer we get to equality the more the debunked gender myths disappear and the more we see women and men behaving in a similar fashion. Women are just as fixated on attractive men as men are on women, they just didn't often have the power to do anything about it in the past. Monogamy kills women's sex drives and they are hard wired to seek out multiple sexual partners. Not to say they have to, of course, they have a choice, just like men. But women are visual creatures and they are attracted to certain male attributes.
...the gender similarities hypothesis, which holds that males and females are similar on most, but not all, psychological variables. Results from a review of 46 meta-analyses support the gender similarities hypothesis. Gender differences can vary substantially in magnitude at different ages and depend on the context in which measurement occurs. Over inflated claims of gender differences carry substantial costs in areas such as the workplace and relationships.
Women gaining power and equality means that men are becoming aware of the female gaze, and are beginning to feel objectified, as women have been for so long.
It's a shame that these men feel the need to alter themselves surgically like this. I don't want men to have to feel the same horrific pressures and be treated in the same shitty fashion as women have been throughout history.
Maybe once we do achieve equality, we can then work on treating one another, male and female, with kindness and respect.
As I have often said, if we woke up tomorrow in a world where women were equally physically strong as men, all those long cherished myths people have been nurturing about gender roles would disappear very swiftly.
This sort of thing is inevitable with the acceptance of the indisputable fact that women and men are very much alike in most ways, including in their appreciation for hot young bodies with impressive physical attributes.
And this is simply a symptom of how some men are starting to feel that.
Unfortunate. Hopefully in 100 years we will look back and see how when men as a class finally accepted how much alike women and men were, finally let go of the cherished debunked gender myths, when men as a class were finally displaced from their unearned positions of privilege*, and women and men finally became equals, society found new and more respectful ways of interacting with one another.
We move forward, slowly. Men being made to feel as unhappy as women have been made to feel with their bodies is an unfortunate stop along the way.

NB, I make a habit of not responding to sexists, trolls and lalalala fingers in ears comments.
as the line in the South Park Movie goes "what is wrong with those Germans?"
There was a young man from Kent
Whose tool was so long it bent
To save all the trouble
He put it in double
And instead of coming he went.
my old car has seen some nice naked times
cheese ? - mate - you must be a supertaster - sensitive to smells most don't notice - my girlfriend always told me she loved the smell and taste, and the result tasted like 'salty cream' - she couldn't get enough of it.
so - guess you could call me - blue vein.
so - you played hide the sausage with her ... ?
ja wohl - a german invented the motor car - with you know - the internal combustion engine - with reciprocating motion - piston-action - up/down, in/out - hydraulics have a certain fascination - anyone want a frack ?
some people like the Loch Ness Monster ...
in Munich as a Porsche driver squealed his wheels around the corner we were standing, a local girl told me - 'that means small penis'
some people are just easily satisfied ...
guess you weren't a local Brunhilde - demanding 'I vant it bigger - like a machine !'
LOL - that must be a load off your mind ...
You mean "circumcision"
A vasectomy is a procedure that doesn't involve the penis at all - rather the vas defrens. I think you're getting your terms mixed up.
Go and have a beer with Nigel Farage and try to forget all about it?
The op also improves your personality ensuring that your improved buddy does not languish in the unemployed lines!
Nice to see the Brits not topping this particular league table..
Or perhaps there's a reason why Germans have such big, expensive, fast cars.
So they can drive really fast on the Autobahn?
Yeah, right. I thank you for refraining from references to male baldness, btw.
But I am, just certainly not for my body. As far sa that goes each age produces its own preferences and they're all just as arbitrary as they are real. Real as in being a cause. You cannot define that away.
And what on earth did give you the idea I was insecure about it? As far as I am concerned that's an objective statement, just as 'I am a male' or 'I am in a certain age bracket' is. I couldn't care less really. But terms do have meanings and all you can get by redefining them for personal use is cheap consolation of which I have absolutely zero need of at the cost of clarity. Of course, there's your reason why my relationships don't tend to last right there.
Ok, let me repeat myself too then: There are even people who do just that for the hell of it. I'll leave it up to you to find pictures of ... the differently different. Just because it freaks you out it doesn't mean every male's balls shrivel too at the thought of it.
You're talking to somebody, who spent two month sitting at the edge of a chair to allow for free dangling after surgery due to a somewhat reversed problem. Piece of cake compared to a good chance of fading out with every erection and the certainty of it during orgasms. Being born to religious nutters it took me into my early 20ies to finally do something about it, since I had the same sort of deep-rooted fear you're displaying. Makes every Freudian weep. Whatever, nothing I'd recommend for a holiday, but you'll live and the traumatising bit certainly came long before.
Do you get now, why I can easily see someone approach that point just from a slightly different direction? If something's been troubling you for years some rather painful weeks do not even really register.
I dunno, sounds low for a grand total.
Deutschland Über Phallus!
They have veys
Nationalist or perhaps jingoistic but no racial implications at all. There is no race called Nazi and Englishmen are of various races. Chirchill wss primarily a patriot.
They're the same thing.
"The ISAPS data is not broken down by gender for each nation so the relative popularity of penile enlargement is not quite clear."
... broken down "by gender" ... am I missing something here?
Most women I know prefer things measured in units of time
Shane Warne used to get to say that every night.
No, you're wrong. Ahmadinejad is just one big dick. He needs a beard to hide the circumcision scar.
And look at the runners-up? Most of the Spanish speaking countries are pushing for the next size up. Probably because a lot of the ladies are getting work done. Maybe it's a 'do one, get one free' promo.
Indeed. Even if the remaining 190-odd countries had 12 todger extensions, that'd be way less than 15,000
Now you're transgender?
Sadly I've never seen my erection. Every time I get turned on I pass out due to the massive shift in circulating blood volume.
Don't chiropodists work with toes, podiatrists do the whole foot....
Because the male scent gland is in the foreskin. Women prefer vasectomies.
I wonder why women prefer vasectomised penises? It's quite well established, so...
Do you play piano?
and now there are even bigger dickheads wandering around.
Hey don't say that. There's a whole industry and a host of gullible punters hanging on this.
BTW, my wife tells me size doesn't matter but why does she laugh when she says it?
Wait... they can make it bigger?!!
Oh shit.. I've been missing on being called Mr Ed all these years.
Getting educated, working hard, working out, buying fast cars... all that hard work... All for pussy.
And all I needed to do is go to Germany, get an extension, and start dropping my pants every time I see a divine blonde with massive (fake) tits saying: "Get a load of this".
Fuck you Guardian, reporting about the world wars, warming, pollution and hunger... And just now saying that I can have a bigger cock... Move away fuckers... I am off to Germany....
Hating on the Germans today!
OMG! This is revenge over Bild's nasty comments about British tourists!
i've found a way to make mine twelve inches......fold it in half!!!!
