Why men worry about their penis size
The human male is often worried about the penis size. Most of this worry comes from uncertainty as to what the normal or average penis size is. With the help of adult media, annoying spam and tabloids, many men place great importance upon the dimensions of their penis, as a sign of masculinity.
The hegemony of masculinity, requires a male to display physical attributes such as strength and bulkiness. There is also some importance placed upon the feats of sexual conquest and the sexual prowess, and although not all men resemble or seek such masculinity - there is a social pressure to adhere to it.
Penis size is regarded as a sign of masculinity. Having a large penis is desirable.
If you've ever had an email account, especially in the 00'ies, before decent spam filters evolved, you've come across a lot of spam that built on these misstatements. Even without reading the contents, men whom were happy with their penis measurements felt somewhat unnecessarily objectified and dehumanised.
It is not only the erect state of the penis that worries men but also the flaccid state, a large proportion of males do no wish to uncover their genitals in areas where it is practical and socially acceptable (think gym changing rooms and saunas). It is worth pointing out that the dimensions of flaccid penis do not reflect the dimensions of an erect one. Having a small flaccid penis is completely normal.
