...tall (say 6'3" or more) and have a very small penis (significantly small, not just on the small side of average), or short (say 5'3" or under) and have a very large penis? Why?



(Mods: a poll, yes, but a pretty mundane, pointless one, so I put it here -- move at will.)

Grrr!

Shit that's a tough one.

I'd have to know exactly how small we're talking here. Are we talking microphallis small? OR just small?

If we're talking just small then I'll go with 6'3" because I think my dating pool would be much larger than a guy who's 5'4".

Plus the optimist in me says women don't really give a fuck about size when it comes to boyfriend material. OF course I don't kid myself, I'm sure just about every woman out there would like to try a monster penis at least once in her life.

I'd also need to know who has the better social skills of the two. My social skills are paramount to me; so I'd have to know that as well.

I'd say tall and have a small penis.
I'm tall (6'4") and I've had a number of women just because of my height. They notice that before the other thing anyway, you would hope, unless you were VERY large donwstairs. I think more women are attracted to taller men than shorter, but I have a friend who seems to be the exception to the rule. He's short and has a large penis and has never lacked for female attention even though he's not all that handsome.
In my experience, being tall and carrying some lumber, makes one more confident all the way around.

OR just small?I don't know the dimensions of a micro-penis, but let's say not quite a micropenis, but close -- ie, pretty damned unusually small.I'd also need to know who has the better social skills of the two. My social skills are paramount to me; so I'd have to know that as well.Your social skills and looks are the same as whatever you've got now.

I'd go for being shorter with a big dick.

People love to talk and short guys with big dicks get lots of praise heaped on them and believe me, word gets around.

Tall guys with small dicks also get talked about. And laughed at and snickered about.

I'll go for the small penis. You can't be president for less than 6' 1".

But once you're president, it doesn't matter how big your penis is, you'll still find plenty of girls.

I'd rather be short with a large penis. This has nothing to do with getting women, nor having a large penis. (That's just a bonus.) It has everything to do with not having to crouch down every time I go to the basement, or fold myself in half when getting into a compact car, or hurt my back leaning way over just to rest my elbows on a table. I've hit my head on so many things it's a miracle I can even see straight. (Granted, this is due partially to clumsiness, not just height.)

And I'm not even that tall! I feel sorry for people who are 6'3'' or taller. I've oftened wondered how many 6-foot-plus people die every year from ceiling fan related injuries.

Can I stick with average height and average penis length?
If Not, Give me Tall and short penis, because I constantly mock short people when they can't reach the top shelf. And I think I could come up with lots of snappy responses to "How's the weather up there?"

As a woman; I think you guys should be going with the second option. However, how large is the penis? An extremely large penis is as much a problem as a tiny one.

Larry Mudd

Neither, for me.

I'd like to be taller, but not at the cost of a micropenis.

I wouldn't want to be shorter and have a monster cock, either. Ever had to be careful with someone so that you didn't mash the end of your penis into their cervix?

It sucks, and so does an uncomfortably tight fit. (I know this because the vagaries of female anatomy, not my own modest endowment.)

Awkward and painful sex for everyone involved? I'll pass.

Well, I'm 6'3 and have a rather large penis, so I suppose I have to abstain in this poll :D

I'm thinking some definitions are needed here as it is rather confusing. Someone please define the range for "small" and "large?"

I think the opposite. Tiny dick is an unfortunate dealbreaker, a large one can be accomodated.

But then the question for you is, if you had to, which one would you give up first? It's tough -- I can't even decide on my own answer. :mad:

No preference. I don't think either attribute matters.

Psst...I think the guys should choose the tall option. Gets you in the door quicker and if you're charming and wonderful, you aren't going to get dumped for having an einy weiny. Well, not by me anyway but I can't speak for all of womankind. Short guys simply aren't as attractive especially to those of us that like to wear 3 inch heels.

Dang it, I was gonna post this. I Guess I'm also slow. Actually, I have it on very good authority that a microphallus can be at least as...effective...for a woman. They got lots of good junk right there at the front door that us regular guys have trouble interacting with. But I'd still rather not be tall.

I'll take the short guy. I am so sick of the awkwardness of dating tall men. I have to stand on tiptoe to try to kiss them, we look really odd standing next to each other, etc. I will take the well endowed short guy any day. Endowment doesn't really matter though, height is more important. (Also, I have dated a man with a micropenis. It is so small it sucks into his body when he is soft like a bic pen. He was fantastic in bed and he learned how to do other things REALLY well to make up for his, um, shortcomings. He was an ass though.)

I'm 6'5", and rather well endowed. If I had to decide, I think I'd keep the tall. I am more aware of that, but have never known what it was like to feel insecure about my size below the belt. In other words, my height comes into play all the time, my John Thompson less frequently.

It's really a tough question.

I suppose since I asked, I better offer my opinion...

Personally, I would prefer the taller guy with the small penis - not because I really dig tall men, but because I really don't like monster penises. Big is fine. Massive, as suggested by the OP is really kind of a turn off.

Also, in my experience, with one notable exception, guys that tend to be less well endowed downstairs make up for it with other skills, which is always fun. :) Also, it's much easier to, uh, perform oral on a smaller penis than a big one, and if you kind of like that, that's a good thing.

Ok, I've said too much, I'm leaving now.

My sweetie is short (5'4") and quite well endowed. Not "monster-sized", but very large. He is also very skilled in other bedroom type areas, although most well endowed men aren't, in my experience. Word definitely gets around about him; once at a party he was introduced to someone and they answered back with, "Oh my God! I've heard you have a great dick!" I would say being a bit short hasn't hurt him in the least.

So, anyway, I know what I would choose, as a woman. Because I did. :cool:

Speaking as a Gay guy, being short with a large penis is certainly not seen as a problem by anyone I know... But being tall with a small penis may not make ya too popular with them...

I think there are guys who have a small penis fetish, but I think they're relatively rare in the community.

Hmph! And those guys think they know all about "Greek culture" (https://academicpursuits.us/columns/051209.html)!

I'm 6'5ish with plenty to spare,size 15 shoe and more importantly, I know how to use it. But if I had to give one of the two up, I'd lose a bit of the schwanz. The height is a natural magnet.

Short with a great rack. Why change? ---oh wait nevermind....

Female weighing in for choice number two. Height doesn't do much for me. I'm 5'3", as long as he's marginally taller than me I'm fine with that. Whereas big dicks can be fun (although too big can make certain...activites... difficult.) Certainly more fun than getting a crick in my neck every time I kiss him.
