The Right Way To Measure A Penis

Apparently, there’s a dispute about how to measure a penis the right way. It’s not just as simple as taking one in your hand and measuring it with a 12 inch wooden ruler.

Researchers have been picking at these issues for decades, developing varied measurement tactics. But as fourteen respected urologists reported in an academic review of some of these approaches last year, “little data exists on the best technique to measure penile length.”

Here’s a link. They also claim doctors have been trying to gather penis size data since the 1940s, and they discovered quickly that it’s a lot more complicated than they thought it would be. It’s actually a very well written piece, and totally SFW. 

America’s Fear of the Penis

Well I’ve been posting about the lack of male full frontal nudity in films for ages, so this is no surprise to me. 

It’s an interview with French director, Gaspar Noé, who is known for his ability to cross certain lines. And it covers more than one topic. 

“The fear of the penis in the United States still shocks me,” he lets out during a phone exchange. “In many ways, the Western world is turning Victorian.”

You can check this out, here. As far as interviews go, this is excellent. If you’re seriously into film study…real film…you’ll enjoy this. 

Driver Fined $100 For Leaving Penis Shape

Tony and I have had to deal with Home Owners Associations over the years in a variety of ways, and this is a first for me. There’s actually an HOA in Tennessee that is trying to fine a woman $100 because her car left a penis shape in the snow. 

The woman, from Tennessee, had received a letter from her local association saying she had been fined $100 over a problem ‘involving my car and snow’.

Here’s the link to this one.  There’s a photo of the penis shape. 

Amazon Reader Review:

“This is GREAT story!! It’s wonderful in its exploration of sexuality and masculinity. The story is well done and beautifully done. The story flows beautifully and the characters are wonderfully written.”

Kendle's Fire by [Field, Ryan] 

Even though Kendle is an openly gay ex-Marine, he’s been questioning his masculinity all of his life. He’s always been what people expect a man to be, in spite of the fact that he’s never been completely comfortable living up to these expectations.

He also has a few secrets. The kind of secrets a man can only talk about with the most intimate people in his life. One of those people is his best friend and part time lover, Dale. And their relationship is not without a few unusual quirks and ironies either, especially when it comes to the way Kendle explains his relationship with Dale to his own parents. 

After a string of bad career decisions and awkward mistakes, it’s not until Kendle meets a young guy named Walter that his life begins to come together. It’s a journey filled with as much joy as heartbreak, with a few bittersweet twists in between. As Kendle opens himself up to new possibilities, he finds himself in the midst of life altering changes that leave him devastated. And there’s a point where he’s not sure he can get through any of it.
