Size matters – and if it didn’t, you’d be smaller
Does size matter? It’s the age old question. Some say that it’s the ‘motion of the ocean’ that matters while others have pointed out that ‘they don’t make small dildos’. Still others have pointed out that, actually, they do make small dildos! If you ask me, I’ll tell you that size does matter. But I’m not just speaking of pers
onal preference, here. The question of whether or not length and/or girth is important becomes obvious if you look, as I always do, to the animal kingdom.
Male humans, you see, have penises far larger than any of the other primate species around the world. Even Silverback gorillas, as massive as they are, only manage to achieve erections of about 1.5 inches. Many theories have been put forward for why humans have such large dingdongs. Originally they wondered if a big penis might have evolved to make insemination easier but that didn’t make sense since the less endowed primates are just as good at breeding as we are. They then thought a big wang might be useful in male/male competition (aka showing off) but then they realized that most indigenous cultures have coverings over their genitals so that didn’t seem like a good explanation either. They then wondered if a big cock might have evolved to help us to perform some of the more adventurous kama sutra style position that many of us are quite partial to but that also didn’t make sense because orangutans, chimps, bonobos and many other primates are into all the same crazy shit that we are – and then some!
Finally someone wondered
if female choice might have been involved but this was dismissed almost immediately after a few studies showed that women don’t really like looking at penises. This isn’t surprising considering what a huge epic fail playgirl magazine was!
So if women don’t even like to look at penises could female selection really be involved in the evolution of the huge human wang? Well as Meredith Small points out in her book ‘Female Choices: Sexual behavior of female primates‘ .. and as what virtually all women already understand .. a woman doesn’t have to love the sight of a cock to appreciate how it feels. Hence it is entirely possible and indeed very likely that the reason men have such large penises is that women enjoy them so much that over time they mated more often with these big boys than with the little smokeys and essentially bred the big cock gene into the species. Women, therefore, are amazing designers. Not just of fashion and homes but of men – and their penises!
Of course female don’t’ always have choice over who they mate with. There are arranged marriages and tribal system where a dominant male type character has rights to females and of course there has always rape. Also women will also make mate choices based on things other than cock size (shocking, I know). But generally speaking it can definitely be argued (and I do) that there have been enough women choosing mates based on their cock size over the last few thousand years to increase the size of human penis beyond what would ever be necessary on a purely functional basis.
So does size matter? Of course it does .. but don’t worry. You’re already doing way better than almost any other primate on Earth.

Nice theory, except surely other female primates would have similar preferences?
Well gorilla females basically just mate with whoever is the dominant male and he wins that through body size rather than cock size. Also orangutan males are like double the size of females and just use rape to have sex so the girls don’t get a chance to make mate choices very often. And chimps and bonobos are just sluts and seem happy with males of any size. As for all the monkeys and everything I’m not sure but yeah .. you’d think they’d like big cocks too .. why not! lol
Evolution or Speciation?
I have read Origins of Species several times in my adult life and Darwin seems to be missing a few important things in his theory: genetics, secondary sexual characteristics, and extreme speciation.
The hominid species, humans, are extremely speciated. Even though African pygmy and Japanese women may share similar height, they may exclude their potential mates based entirely upon a secondary sexual characteristic. In any case, American women probably would not select a pygmy as a mate, no matter the secondary sexual characteristic.
Does size matter?
As a secondary sexual characteristic, it does. A potential mate could exclude you based upon aberrance. The Japanese women would think the pygmy male too larger; the pygmy woman, vice versa.
Considering the human success of these two extremely speciated groups:&mdashclearly, the Japanese women have chosen better.
