Could be worse - could be 1 1/2 inches about wangs.

On circumcision, don't remember mine...don't have any issues with mine...can understand the consent issue.

It is a far more common occurrence for you guys across the pond. It's relatively rare over here.

Yeah, I've had more than one American girlfriend, and they've all said I'm the only guy they've been with who hasn't been cut. Adds a bit of girth. Girth is good. Now that's a f***ed up Gordon Gecko quote

Dammit. These conversations always get most interesting while I'm asleep.

And getting cut because it's easier to clean it, sounds like one of the laziest things ever. Might as well pull out the fingernails as well, easier then clipping them now and then.
This chick gets it. You don't need to have a dick to understand the problems with getting part of it cut off.

Absolutely.

Wanna trade shlongs? We're in two totally opposite situations, my friend. But in all seriousness, I'd strongly advise against getting that done, because there's no going back once you do. And there's no guarantee you'll like it more the other way; eventually you might think it was a bad idea, but by then it'll be too late. No doubt it's harder to clean as long as you've got foreskin, but I imagine I'd get used to that after a while.

Not entirely true...there are procedures to attempt to restore the foreskin.

Man...this topic took an odd 180...

Tell me about it. I mention my favorite time travel movie and nobody bats an eye. Somebody starts talking about their reproductive organs and that's the hot topic of this thread.

Talking about one's own (and other people's) dick is irresistible, apparently.

True, but based on what I've read, that stuff isn't all that reliable (I wouldn't expect it to be, either). It's called "tugging", if I remember correctly, and there are devices for it and all that jazz - but it's exactly how you described it: an attempt. Once you start getting into all of that, you're taking a risk, as there's never a guarantee you'll get the result you want; so I personally wouldn't even bother with it. It seems a bit desperate and last resort-ish to me.

And hey, at least we've moved on from talking about porn and midget grannies.

One thing I'm wondering is, if a bunch of guys pee at a row of urinals, why are guys afraid to look down at another guy's dong or stand too close together?

Why not just the proactive thing, and then offer the next guy a compliment? Like say "Wow, your junk looks impressive in size."

Because we're there to take a piss, not get punched in the face.
Looking at strangers dick is an invasion of privacy.

I'd think if dudes were that worried about privacy, they'd pee in a stall instead.

Then again, the idea of nudity in any form being kept private is foreign to me - when I lived at home, the other (female) members of my family walking in and out while I was in the shower/in the bathroom was a common occurrence. My nana grew up in a large household with very little privacy; it was kind of the norm. So yeah - admittedly, my upbringing might have something to do with my blase` attitude towards people seeing my rump roast.

I always thought that dudes kept their eyes firmly forward and try to abide by the "always have at least one urinal between you and the other guy (and other weird bathroom rules)" because they're uptight about Teh Gay.

Not everything is about homophobia, seriously.

It's really uncomfortable to have a stranger piss beside you, simple as that.
It's even more uncomfortable to have a friend piss beside you.

Same goes for ********, if I'm being honest.

And some guy, looking at my dick, gay or straight, is an unwanted advance, period. It's really not cool.

But why not use a stall then? I'm not taking a shot at you, for real - I just don't get it.

Commenter is right. Not looking at another guy's weapon in toilets is an unwritten rile. Looking at their penis is just a big no-no.

Changing rooms are totally different. In that environment it's normal to walk around naked. And when you take a shower after the gym or sport, you generally take it with guys who you know and just trained with, so you've seen their genitals plenty of times before anyway.

Furthermore, some men are growers. That's why they aren't self-conscious about being seen naked - they know their penis is significantly bigger erect than flaccid, so they have no hang-ups if they think another man might be looking at them and thinking they're small.

Yeah it's definitely an uninvited intrusion. Regardless of intent, it just feels creepy. Like, if you're not cruising, then why are you looking at my piece, homes? And if you ARE, then holy sh*t, that's still pretty uncouth simply because you're taking an uninvited glance when I'm in a vulnerable position. It's nothing to do with being insecure or homophobic, it's just a straight-up "WTF Is Wrong With You?" moment.

Like, MOST people I know don't have verbal phone conversations on the sh*tter, either. I'm sure some people do, but I avoid it. Taking a sh*t or a piss is a private moment and I'm neither in the mood to entertain a conversation nor a curious gaze. "Just go in the stall" in entirely impractical purely from space concerns, and also, those things are obscenely filthy (I understand girls have no choice, but guys do, and no guy should EVER sit on a public toilet seat under any circumstances if they can help it, given how rarely they're serviced and the generally awful condition most guys leave the stalls in).

I guess scat is just more social for girls or something, because I think I speak for pretty much Every Guy when I say, if I could only ever piss or sh*t in 100% privacy, I would. There is zero reason to engage another person in any way inside a restroom, other than "excuse me" if you both reach for the towels at the same time. To me that's just manners. "No, I know you're not trying to be creepy, but I'd still rather wait to talk to you until a time when I don't have one hand on my dick, if it can possibly wait. Fair enough? And if you wanna see my dick, ASK, don't cast sideways glances while I'm pissing."

Seems simple to me.

Locker rooms, changing rooms, locker room showers, that's all a different ball game. Some of the locker rooms I've been in, guys and girls changed together, nobody cares. It's less about seeing people naked, and more the fact that "Seeing People Naked When Filthy Waste Products Are Dripping From Them Is F*cking Nasty", and it says a LOT about the person who is willingly trying to check your piece while you're next to them at a pisser. To me, it says "This Person Has Boundary Issues and Should Be Avoided At All Costs".
