Seriously, folks - I'm out of here. This whole thread is becoming ridiculous.

Haha, I'm with you there. (I wasn't only replying to you, not sure why the quotes came up).
If the guy's penis only knew how much attention is being paid to it...

I'm a supremely private individual and would never in a million years discuss my husband's penis size or our sex life to friends or family. But there are people, men and women, who need that outlet. I don't think it's inappropriate per se, just not something I would do myself.

Fair enough. I thought the comparison was apples to apples (penis to vagina?) though.

The way I look at it, if something is visible, it's not exactly private. It's not nice to talk about your wife's weight or boob size or things along those lines, but there's no hiding it from others.

The size of your husband's penis or somebody's wifes vagina is, obviously, not visible, and thus extremely private and should really not be shared with anybody, IMO. I agree.

But the reality is that some women DO discuss (or use sign language to convey, lol) their partner's penis size.

In my 40 years on this planet, and amongst many men in 'locker rooms' and the like, I have never once heard anything truly private said about any of their girlfriends or wives. Conversely, I can count maybe a half dozen times in my life I've been around women who've openly mentioned (or, again, used hand gestures! to convey) their partner, or former partners penis size.

FWIW, I'm not trying to prove anything, or even argue this, honestly. It's just an observation.

Were those women the men's wives or random women?
I have heard similar comments (I don't condone this either) but those were general remarks and not really a betrayal of confidence of somebody's spouse.

The ones I heard complaints about were the wives. Mostly about the way their bodies have changed since childbirth -some were weight gain, some were stretch marks, some men just reminisced about the past when their wives had 'hard bodies'.

The worst one was a guy I used to work with in a laboratory. He had a heavier wife (she was heavy before they got married) but would constantly complain about her weight. He came in one day complaining that his hips were hurting. When another male Co worker asked him how he'd injured himself, he responded that his wife was on top the night before and her extra weight hurt him. I overheard the conversation and felt so much embarrassment for her.

Re: Overheard an awkward conversation

they make quite nice penis sleeve extenders for guys like that. Buy him one, and have the Mrs give it to his wife as a present.

So while I don't think that this is right and that it's a pathetic thing to say, the difference here is that he hasn't really revealed anything that is new and extra confidential (her extra weight). Sounds a bit like he was bragging about getting laid which is what guys tend to brag about and it's no big secret.
But yes if he mentioned how much her stretch marks in intimate places put him off of sex with her, then that would be in the same league as the Tiny Tim remarks I feel.

But in case I wasn't clear: it is wrong to mention it in this manner.
