Rejoice straight dudes! 20% of all women don't care about the size of your cock.
Our mates across the pond have it the best when it comes to cock size. No, not because they're blessed with endowment. The ladies there have the most realistic expectations of all the women in the world. Brits are realistic...Poles, not so much, which can lead to disappointment when the package is unwrapped.
The difference between gender perception of "normal" or "average" length is pretty close. Men believe the average to be 5.6"; women believe it's 5.4".
When guys were asked what the "ideal" size would be? 6.5" Women, 6.2". The online sexual health site DrEd did the polling for these numbers, culled together in a wonderful article in the Daily Mail (brought to us by Faithful Reader, Jean). [Click the link to browse the entire article, with graphs galore!] It's amazing how close we are, isn't it?
But why the disparity between reality and ideal? Faithful Reader and fellow Blogger, Lord Patrick, has postulated that it's possible that gay art may have something to do with this. That then the larger depictions spilled over into the straight community. He may have a point.
Tom of Finland was very popular in his day; probably the most prominent.
Could "size matters; bigger is better" have flowed into the hetero male mind? Maybe.
Many straight dudes would patronize bathhouses because wives or girlfriends wouldn't agree to blow jobs (my first wife certainly wouldn't),
or allow their man to kick back and enjoy a hand job (she wouldn't do this either).
Enter the gay clubs...where they would observe which men got the all the attention.
We still love looking at guys with larger cocks. The adult industry knows it, and perpetuates this. Flaccid is typically not shown - there is always tumescence; those semi-hard-on's.
Boners - well, the proper camera angle can make a cock seem larger than is actually is

But, cheer up, men! In our hearts, and in the hearts of our spouses and partners, we know the reality.
And, in general, we're quite happy with what we've got, and we love our cocks.
