Study Shows Gay Self Esteem Linked to Penis Size

By February 25, 2006

Follow me on:

A new study conducted by researchers at Utrecht University in Amsterdam confirms what's seemingly always been a gay obsession- penis size. The study doesn't focus on an idolization of male genitals (after all, being gay is not synonymous with sex), but shows a link between gay male penis size and gay self-esteem.

The larger the penis, they say, the more confident gay men were with potential lovers and in every day life. Behind penis size were concerns over the stomach and skin.

With the extraordinary number of penis-focused products on the market (both commercial and underground), it's safe to assume that gay men aren't the only ones buying them. Heterosexual men have the same insecurities.

Liesbeth Woertman, a senior lecturer in clinical psychology and leader of the study at Utrecht University, comments, "It is not known whether if there is a similar link in heterosexual men, but there are various reasons for assuming that the self-image of heterosexual men is linked to how they evaluate the most characteristically masculine part of their body."

i am a guy with a big penis 9″ and it has been a pleasant thought through my life but in all after 50 years of constant use i think i would have had a better time with an average size. the expression bar room betting has som fact in it. as an adelesant embarrasing, and the fact is it is a dream of my partners but usually too much for comfort

I don’t think the University of Utrecht is in Amsterdam. The University of Utrecht is in the city Utrecht.

I’d have to agree having a big penis has its pros an cons I’ve always been told I have the biggest penis the women I’m dealing with has ever seen… pleasure and pain… there’s been many times when it was to painful for enjoyment an we couldn’t finish…our experience but most times I been told that it was the best sex they ever had … and they always came back so I think id rather have big than small…. its one less thing to have to be concerned about with a big penis u can always adjust the comfort level using just enough of the penis to make it feel good but if small u really can’t account for the extra inches you may need to hit that spot…..
