Germans think they're well-hung - but they're not

Germans think they're well-hung - but they're not

Wed Dec 1,11:58 AM ET

BERLIN (Reuters) - Most German men wear condoms of the wrong size, a condom distributor has said, after asking more than 2,500 men to measure their erect penis.

"People measure their feet when they buy shoes. Why shouldn't they measure their penises? A man would not wear children's shoes," said Jan Vinzenz Krause of Vinico, which released the study's findings on World AIDS (news - web sites) Day.

Most condom boxes in Germany indicated size but men, due to embarrassment or vanity, rarely checked or just bought those marked "extra large", he said on Wednesday.

Vinico's survey recommended various brands to be used -- depending on the endowment of the wearer.

The study found the average erect penis size was 14.7 cm (5-3/4 inches), with 40 percent of participants reporting lengths between 12 and 15 cm (4-3/4 and 5-7/8 inches).

When compared with the condoms normally used by the participants, the results showed only 18 percent wore the right size, with nearly half squeezing into condoms that were too small and 34 percent trying to use those that were too big.

This is clearly a marketing problem.

Because clamping on that cold, metal, shoe size measurer to check your size would just be too much... Ouch! Brrrrrrr!!!

For some reason I'm getting this feeling that you're trying to tell us that you're gay. And conservative.

Why do you feel the need to announce to all of FR how you have sex?

Believe it or not the vast majority of conservatives could care less how you have sex as long as you don't try to force them to like it, pay for it or it's consequences, and/or endorse it.

I just can't imagine what the world would be like if everyone introduced themselves with information about their sexual habits first. "Hi, I wear womens underwear and my name is Bill..." "Hello, I like it handcuffed to the bed post and my name is Hillary..."

I have a friend at work with whom I have to have a good relationship. We are indeed friends, and not simply acquiantences, but every time he starts to tell me something intimate I will look at my arm and say, 'wow - would you look at the time'.

Wow - would you look at the time ...

No such thing as a "gay" conservative.

He's a pervert trying to be cute.

I think what he does sexually with other men is disgusting.

He was drawn to this thread because of the size stuff. Most likely he imagines himself an expert pervert in what's large and small for males.

I agree with most of what yo are saying. But, I know for a fact that there are conservatives who are perverts. This doesn't disqualify them from having almost all of their beliefs, except their sex life, along the conservative way of thinking.

If we threw all Christians out of the church who sinned against the church (God) we would have no (zero, zip, nada, not one) people in the church.

They just need to quit trying to force their behavior on us.

I respect your political choice and your lifestyle choice. I've been told by women that claim to know, that penis size correlates with shoe size.

I've also been told by women who have experience, that size doesn't matter within the average range. One quote was, "He had a big old watermelon, like this (hands held shoulder width). No way I'm taking that."

",,, maybe. Whatever, he's been honest and that slots him further up the value chain than a straight person like Bill Klinton who ended up as President and grand star all-time championship liar."

So you elevate an "honest" pervert above a pshoopathical liar, clinton, who btw, is also a pervert (monica & the cigar ...)?

I just can't elevate one over the other since both are wrong however I do find homosexual sex to be more disgusting and vile whether he is "honest" or not.

The truth is the pervert isn't being "honest". If he was "honest" he wouldn't be pretending to emulate a normal heterosexual relationship - one ALWAYS places the female role, the effeminate role and one ALWAYS plays the "male" role. You rally can't get more DISHONEST than a smae sex sexual relationship. Homosexuality is a perverted DENIAL of reality.

"But, I know for a fact that there are conservatives who are perverts. This doesn't disqualify them from having almost all of their beliefs, except their sex life, along the conservative way of thinking."

It is their lifestyle and lack of wanting to change it that makes them perverts. You can't compartmentalize this stuff.

"If we threw all Christians out of the church who sinned against the church (God) we would have no (zero, zip, nada, not one) people in the church."

I don't know of a Christian that is NOT a sinner. NO mere mortal is perfect. The difference is genuine Christians TRY to do what is right. This gay guy makes NO effort to do that and seeks attention and sympathy for the sin.

"They just need to quit trying to force their behavior on us."

They won't. Homos want to be accepted, loved and if possible ELEVATED above others. Deep down they know it's wrong and why they go bananas when someone criticizes the obvious - same sex is absurd.
