I guarantee you didn't know everything you thought you did about sex (and penis size, hermaphrodites, vibrators and Lysol?!) The following is a Q&A about all of the above, and more. (from DoubleViking.com)
|1. ||Q: Does penis size necessarily correlate to a man’s worth as a lover?|
A: First of all, studies have revealed that women are equally aroused by pictures of large penises as by images of small penises. Regardless of popular stereotyping, penis size is not related to body shape, height, length of fingers, race, or anything else. Interestingly, it has been proven that “small, flaccid penises tend to increase more in size during erections than do penises that are larger in the flaccid state.” And even still, it should be emphasized that bigger is not always better. In fact, deep penetration can cause pain similar to that experienced when a male gets kicked in the balls, if the penis bangs into the cervix and causes the uterus to be slightly displaced which may jolt an ovary. The vaginal canal’s greatest sensitivity is concentrated in the outer portion, as opposed to deep within. So...no. If you happen to have a huge penis, just don't go too hard.
|2. ||Q: How common are intersexed babies (hermaphrodites)?|
A: Intersexed babies in the United States are born with about the same frequency as red heads. It is estimated that intersexed may account for 4% of all births, or 40 out of every 1000 people, worldwide [Fausto-Sterling]. Interestingly, inter-sexed and transsexual babies who are switched over to the female gender often grow up to have careers as models or actresses due to the fact that their tall height, an aspect of masculinity, is considered to be an symbol of beauty. Such examples include the stunning Italian actress Eva Robinson, angelic Japanese pop sensation Hikaru Utada, and purportedly Jamie Lee Curtis who qualifies as American Hollywood royalty.
|3. ||Q: What is the purpose of female genital cutting that occurs in countries like Africa, the Middle East, and Asia?|
A: There are multiple reasons why genital cutting is performed. One is to ensure virginity before marriage. In some countries, such as Sudan, the social stigma for remaining uncircumcised is harsh, as indicated by the fact that being called “the son of an uncircumcised mother” is a most intense insult [Al- Krenawi & Weisel-Lev]. A second incentive for procedures such as clitorectomy, removal of the clitoris, is to reassure men that they are not having sex with another man in societies where the clitoris is seen as a small penis.
|4. ||Q: Are there any societies where homosexuality is predominant?|
A: Ah, this brings us to my favorite cultural sexual oddity, which occurs in Sambia, New Guinea. In the Sambia tribe, as early as age 7, young boys are expected to “suck the penis of a mature boy every night and swallow the sperm." Boys who refuse are forever treated as children within the context of their community, because “without regular ingestion of male seed, the Sambia believe, boys will never grow up into strong, mature men.” At the age of 15, the boys are considered mature enough to provide their own genitals for the younger boys to felicitate. Performing fellatio on a younger boy is strictly forbidden; as it is considered stealing his manhood because it results in a loss of semen from the growing boy. As soon as the boys marry, they cease to engage in homosexual contact, but often times, since they are so estranged from female sexuality and coitus, they ask their new brides to wear a bag over her head.
|5. ||Q: In the 1800’s, what did women do with left-over cleaning agent Lysol after scrubbing the kitchen floor clean? (nice leading question, Sabrina)|
A: They used it as a douche. It was unnecessary, harmful and served no medicinal purpose.
|6. ||Q: Where do vibrators come from?|
A: The vibrator was devised as a medical instrument to take some of the load off of doctors who owned some very tired fingers. Authorities in the medical community theorized that hysteria, “a term that was first coined by Hippocrates and described a medical condition peculiar to women… considered to be a symptom of irregular blood-movement from the uterus to the brain,” could be cured through orgasm. In the mid 1600’s doctors recorded their treatment method of conducting such therapy by hand. Clitoral stimulation often was required for up to an hour before the resulting fit of convulsions, and thus, doctors developed a tool to ease the amount of labor (tisk tisk, lazy lazy). In the 1800s rocking chairs and swings were manipulated to act as promethean devices to help a woman relieve herself of hysteria, but by 1905, the vibrator had evolved into a portable motorized gadget that could get the job done in ten minutes or less.
|7. ||Q: Are there sexual anxiety disorders that do not exist in America, but do in another society?|
A: Absolutely. Genital retraction syndrome (GRS), widely referred to as koro (translated as “shrinking penis”), is a thousands of years old culture-specific epidemic which is known to spread mass hysteria at lightening speed, or at least the speed of ejaculation, and is equivalent to Western culture’s phenomenon of anxiety attacks. Koro consists of delusions in which men, especially in Asia and Africa, believes he is “the victim of a contagious disease that causes his penis to shrink and retract into his body, an alarming prospect made worse by local traditions or folklore that adds the warning that this condition is usually fatal.” In 1982, the rumor of koro spread in India and resulted in freaked out parents flooding the hospitals pressed to get their sons help.
|8. ||Q: Is there a way for men to exercise their genitals in effort to achieve more pleasurable sex?|
A: Kegel exercises, famous for helping to strengthen the pelvic walls for women in preparation to give labor, also result in positive changes for men, including “stronger and more pleasurable orgasms, better ejaculatory control, and increased pelvic sensation during sexual arousal.” The male version of these exercises work to strengthen the muscles surrounding the internal extension of the penis, which are usually only contracted during ejaculation. Check here for the exercise.
|9. ||Q: Is it true that the larger a woman’s breasts, the better able she will be to provide nourishment for a baby?|
A: In a physically mature woman the breasts are composed internally of fatty tissue and mammary, or milk, glands. There is little variation from woman to woman in the amount of glandular tissue present in the breast, despite differences in size. This is why the amount of milk produced after childbirth does not correlate with the size of the breasts. Variation in breast size is due primarily to the amount of fatty tissue distributed around the glands. Therefore, with bigger boobs, you are receiving higher fat content.
|10. ||Q: Do perfumes really work as a turn on?|
A: It is theorized that perfumes are used so that others will be more likely to breathe in more of the fragrance-wearers pheromones, or odors produced by the body that relate to reproductive functions. While this, and the fact that aphrodisiacs may be learned through association of a trigger with an experience, may be true, it is interesting to note that “contrary to what the marketers of commercial scents would like us to believe, Alan Hirsh, a researcher at the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, recently found that the odors reported to be most sexually arousing for either sex were not colognes or perfumes.” To determine arousal, Hirsch measured the blood flow to privates in response to certain smells and found that the strongest reactions by men correlated to scents of “lavender, pumpkin pie, and doughnuts”, whereas women were most stimulated by “licorice, cucumbers, and bbanana nut bread”.

Penis size from my personal experience matters only to the point when women can't feel it. Other than that, if average length and width, the woman will enjoy.
