    Anyone seen this study:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19139986

    Covers a range of things but basically they are saying that men with small penises (or perceived small) are more likely to be bottoms; men with larger (or perceived larger) are more likely to be tops.

    What do you reckon, do you think there is pressure for men with smaller penises to bottom, or men with larger penises to top? What if you don't want to do what your penis size indicates (or other people believe your penis size indicates)? Have you ever felt forced into a role that went against your natural indication because your sexual partner was smaller/bigger than you?

    I'm wondering if the "penis size-sexual role correlation" they found is just a by-product of something more. There's the possibility that guys with smaller penises tend to also be shorter, which would make sense when considering body proportions. I quickly scanned the full text PDF of the article, and I didn't see any attempts to normalize penis size to body height.

    Maybe shorter guys feel pressured to be bottoms because, socially, their height relegates them to be the submissive/receptive partner. As someone who's 5'4'', not many guys are my height or shorter. I usually bottom during sex, but I've topped occasionally. I've never topped a guy that was significantly taller than me.

    I think it really depends. I know some guys who are obsessed with asses so if you have a nice ass your front may not matter...at all.

    All these research on such matter really makes me wonder of what people are trying to get at...Results like these usually varies and penis size to role is kinda hewy...

    I know some with smallish size and plays as a top

    I know a guy with large dong and would prefer as a bottom.

    As for my self..I'm average...And I go both ways! icon_twisted.gif

    Penis size generally determines top / bottom for me. I'm a bit of a size queen. If they have a big dick, they will top me, even if I have to be on top.

    As I recall....back in the day...when I used to "cruise" around the well known hook-up sites, it always made me wanna cry when I would see a hot man with a hefty looking dick say he was a bottom. I mean...what a waste of a perfectly good dick!!! icon_twisted.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif

    bullshit studies like this make feel such scientists need to be culled.


    these people live in their fantasy world with no correlation to reality sorta of the same type who say sneezing will give you a set percentage chance of stroke. along with blowing your nose or exercising or walking etc.

    in my experiences penis sizes have had least amount of correlation. A person's personal and emotional needs usually takes precedence in what he looks for in a partner.

    In my case, most of the guys ive been with have all been smaller than me yet I was the bottom and there no conflict there really

    My 2 cents worth:

    Statistics are like bikini. They show most parts but not the most important part. Hence, they are as good as no-good.

    Why stick to one role when you can enjoy the best of both worlds ? (Yeah in this case, hats off to Hannah Montana's brilliant quote)

    I think people are in danger of extrapolating their own experiences and thinking it's the same for everyone - there's always going to be exceptions of the hung bottoms and the less-than-average top guys, but is there a general trend towards hung = top, smaller = bottom amongst gay men?

    I wonder if you do a search on an online hook-up site for guys who have indicated they have Extra Large dicks what the split is between top and bottom? Likewise for Small.

    I think it is partially true as men with small penis develops small penis syndrome which is a mental health issue. And because of that condition they are at bottom.

    Some of this is purely a cultural trait.

    If you grew up in a culture that was seriously tilted towards favoring topping over bottoming in m2m relations, the chances were that the 'bigger' dude would get to top.

    Much of this was a face saving strategy. If your environment tended to project bottoming as inferior, emasculating, etc., to topping, at least, in theory, hardly anyone would want to bottom on his own. On the other hand, if there was something like a 'natural order' of things that the parties involved were unable influence themselves, than everyone agreed that the 'bigger' guy should be topping because he was dealt better cards in the lottery of life, and the bottom dude simply recognized the given facts.

    Would anyone HAVE TO abide by the above? Nope, certainly not. But, yeah, a 'bigger' dude can always pull the size card if he does not want to be topped by a 'smaller' guy.

    Which is worse, a little dick or a dick that doesn't get hard?
