Why are people so obsessed with penis size but not vagina size?

It seems like vagina size is just as important but all we ever seem to hear about it is an occasional hot dog in a hallway joke. Isn’t overall compatibility between the two more important than penis size alone?

  • I would say that because men tend to be more insecure about their size. Not all of us, obviously, but many more than women.

    This is likely due to it's being equated with masculinity, throughout the ages. A larger member is seen as a mark of fertility, manliness, and potency. It's been embedded in the human psyche since the ancient Romans, and beyond.

    They decorated their homes with penises, they depicted their fertility gods as having massive dicks. The ancient Egyptians believed that their dismembered god Osiris had his penis cast into the Nile river, and it was his "essence" that caused the rebirth of the land after the yearly flood.

    Vaginas have been depicted, and revered, in various ways, as well. Everything from a source of power, to an object of desire, to a source of uncleanliness, shame, and hysteria. Never once has the size/depth of a vagina been seen as a measure of a woman's "power" though, except in detogatory, or negative, connotations.

    Thus, the feeling of being inadequate, to some men, is simply their feeling of not measuring up (pun intended) to thousands if years of manilness.

    • Wow you’re a really good writer 🔥🔥🔥

    • Haha, thank you. I just tend to start writing what I think, and sometimes it's hard to stop, once I get going. 😂

  • I voted A as vaginas are not so visible. Without doing an internal people wouldn't know. I used to guess by mouth size being equivalent with vagina size. Probably because I went with one girl who was very nice but had quite a wide mouth, also my penis didn't seem to touch the sides of her vagina. Seemed to be ok with girls with small mouths.
    The same could be said that people make a lot of breast size, because they are more visible. ( Well, presumably, as they are hidden behind tops and bras. )

  • The vagina is an elastic canal. Does it even have a size?

    I looked it up, and found the following:
    "The vagina is a very “elastic” organ, says Christine O’Connor, MD, director of adolescent gynecology and well women care[...] It is small enough to hold a tampon in place, but can expand enough to pass a child through[...]
    They fold together to collapse when unused, then expand when necessary. “It doesn’t stay one particular size,” O’Connor says. “It changes to accommodate whatever is going on at that time.”"

    Anyway, women get judged enough about breast size and butt size. Regardless, the sizes of the breasts, butt, or the vagina (if that could even be considered to have a size) is not "just as important" as penis size.
    Women are more likely to orgasm with certain penis sizes. Most men will probably orgasm regardless.
    Women are also more likely to experience pain with certain penis sizes. Most men won't experience pain no matter the size of the woman's vagina, butt, or breasts.

  • I actually looked up vagina sizes after listening to two women who were sort of drunk go on and on about penis size. The whole thing seemed silly to me. Anyway I started thinking are there vagina size difference and I guess there is. The thing about vaginas is they sort of adapt size wise to the penis coming in by expanding.

    • for awhile a lot of wives were having work down their because their husbands where complaining they didn't have the same tightness after pushing babies out of their bodies. It always sounded a bit dangerousl

  • Ever try to put a ruler in your vagina to measure it, not as easy as up against a oenis. Most women care about the size of their breasts.

    • Good point!

    • True...

  • I think its easier to notice the difference in size with mens genitals than it is with woman (visibly, not from touch). I voted A

  • Because men will pretty much fuck anything, so size is not always an issue... but not one wants to play the flute in the Albert Hall

  • Women think its taboo

  • Because women don't measure their "womanhood" based on their vaginal size.
    I think the way men see their penis size can be better compared to how women feel with their breast size.

    • Not saying that all men measure their "manhood"

    • Not all women do either... but if you ask a woman what makes her feel more "womanly" how many are going to say my vaginal size? 🤷‍♀️

    • Haha, good point!

  • Because women don’t really care that much.

  • i think guys just wanna impress us, plus they dont care about the vagina size all they care sbout is having sex with it

    • Well said

    • @rashood thanks

    • Np !

  • Because it doesn't matter as much guys get stimulus even if all of it doesn't fit. While penis size can limit the sex act itself. For women it more about working those muscles and be good in bed than their size.

  • I think it's a combination of the above. Definitely because it's more visible and seems like a sign of virility. But also because it shoots cum, so it seems like it's the central source of sexual energy. I'm obsessed with big ones actually.

    • I am sure you are.

    • I'm seven inches long and over 6 1/4 inches around when I'm soft. No woman I've ever spoken to has ever heard of anyone that long and thick soft (and I get quite a bit longer and thicker when I'm hard). It's a little bit weird to hear, to be honest with you.

    • At least you are honest about being a size queen instead of in denial

  • A. How do you measure a vagina?
    "Honey, before we have sex, could you use this for me so I know what to expect?"

    Why are people so obsessed with penis size but not vagina size?
  • A.

    If it was really really easy to measure vaginal size you don’t think people would talk about it constantly?

  • There isn't an obsession, but tight vagina's are sought after. That said all vagina's expand/contract to fit the size of the penis she's working with. So it's really more about the guys fixed member. The obsession mostly comes from the idea that size=pleasure. So if a guy has more size that's potential for more pleasure.

    Is it true? Yes and no. Obviously size isn't everything, but there is truth in the fact that a longer penis can stimulate parts of a woman that a smaller penis cannot reach in order to stimulate. You can work around it, but it doesn't change the fact that particular tool is "inferior" so to speak. I do think the value is overplayed, but I've met a good number of women that get turned on by a guy having a big dick. So even a portion of the female population takes part in the obsession.

  • Its a self esteem thing for guys. Women say size doesn't matter... but I am 8 inches. And trust me... i get comments... women do like a larger size as long as its not too big. But yeah they get very very sexual.

  • There are a lot of men who seem to judge a man's masculinity on the size of his genitals, and it does not help that they think all women want giant sizes, not to say I know why they think that way since it really makes no sense.

  • Is there much difference between vaginas? Like obviously the vulva and clit can all look really different from women to women, but the actualy vagina is kinda standard, isn't it?

  • Because vagina size has not impact on function or aesthetics like with a penis. The vagina is elastic so it will feel just the same no matter size.

  • Probably because it's believed that penis sizes vary more greatly than do vaginas.

  • Vagina size mattered/s when I hit bottom. Yes, compatibility matters because I lost some because of it. I now can look at a woman, her frame, pelvis, and height of her belly button relative to her hips and rib cage and know if she has a deep one.

  • Cuz vaginas are flexible and adopts for about any object that sizes form 3 to 7 inch. So, this leaves the solid unchangeable penis on the spot light of shame!

  • Because no woman will ever want for penis.
