    Did someone already post this? How are we supposed to compare with all that towel dancing and curtains going on icon_lol.gif

    Oh, wait, this is Briton

    Interviews with British athletes confirm what we all know -- guys look and compare, and the bigger the better

    The research suggested that men look at each other’s cocks, as a gauge to see how big or small they are, comparing themselves to the rest of the team or men in the locker room. The activity of checking out each other occurred irrelevant of sexuality and the type of sport; all participants noted that they looked at each other’s cocks in the locker room

    Same goes in the military open showers stall. There was this guy who just got out of the shower and stared at me while I took a shower, and I began to lather my body and my cock and balls and he kept staring and when I rinsed off and looked back he was gone.

    I have noticed at the gym a few times, when I leave the shower curtain open in the shower stall, some other guys will do the same when they enter a stall to shower, kind of gives the green light that its OK not to cover up, others just appear to be 'trained' to close the curtain and or get dressed inside the shower stall, I dunno, Europe still has the edge when it comes to not being modest

    Super interesting, but it does sound like he makes a few assumptions here and there... Still a great read though!

    Hence the reason why so many guys on this site are so much in favor of guys walking around naked in the locker room?

    They had to do a study to figure this out? I knew that in upper class! icon_lol.gif

    I'm always a bit self conscious in the showers because I have a cock that's pretty big soft and doesn't grow that much when going hard (commonly referred to as a shower); and I am always worried I might gross out the other guys cause they might think I got at least a semi going.

    I think the study missed this part and didn't take the grower vs shower into account, obviously, the shower will always appear to have bigger bits when we check each other out, I assume that is why official cock size has always been measured with erections and not flaccid. Although, ive seen studies that stretch the flaccid and measured that way, I just wonder if a shower can stretch at all because we know the growers can icon_idea.gif

    this one embarrasses me too. Because mibe is quite very small when its not errected. And my folks compare with flaccid ones. In their case the flaccid ones are bigger enough! icon_redface.gif

    With a sample size of only eight, it makes no sense to draw firm conclusions.

    Coming from a competitive sports background, I always thought the competition that mattered took place on the field or the ski hill.

    As those with small cocks exit the building, I have to ask. Is "cockocracy" a word?

    LOL, I never looked at other penises in the locker room unless it was just obvious. I don't think anyone ever treated me different b/c of my size, either. At the end of the day, I really do believe that people will evaluate you based on your personality and results, not your penis size.

    More interesting of those eight was how the sport/sexual orientation breakdown played out:

    "The athletes included in this study are three soccer players (all straight); one soccer and rugby player (straight); one fitness trainer (gay); one bodybuilder (gay); one squash and tennis player (gay) and one former pro gymnast (gay)."

    Well, men are naturally more competitive and they will always try to prove their manliness. I'm pretty sure it's just overcompensation.

    what a dumb article. i mean, who does a "study" with a cohort of 8 participants? it doesn't follow any standard academic research form, and well it reads more like a closeted prof's self indulgent personal fap material really.

    anyways, anyone who has ever been in a communal shower knows that everyone checks everyone else's dick. THANKS FOR THE UPDATE

    I know this happens. Its happened to me while getting dressed, I noticed a fellow looking right at my crotch while I was pulling on my underwear. I knew he was straight and curious about how HD measures up. One could just tell. It happens from time to time. I had a fellow checking me out at weigh in for a lifting competition (we weigh in with compression underwear only).

    As for the study, its justification for keeping a do nothing job. Its all about cushy job protection.

    "So having a large penis comes with responsibilities and expected duties. "

    I laughed at that.
