Hi everyone. I\'v been reading a lot of stuff here on the forums. One of the things I was reading about today was penile dysmorphia, and I do believe many men here do suffer from it.
You know, like guys with 6.3 EL and 5.4 EG wanting to be 6.4 EG for example.
What I\'m trying to work out is, at what point measurement wise would you say someone seeking girth enhancement surgery is suffering from dysmorphia?
My measurement is 6\" EL and 4\" EG. (6.1 and 4.1 one a good day).
As a teenager reading about how women preferred girth to length, and reading that I was about an inch below the average girth did get to me even though I know the girth is within the normal range, it is still thinner than the majority of men.
Knowing that any girl who has had sex even once has probably experienced a thicker penis than mine is often at the back of my mind.
Even though I have those statistics to back me up, that my girth is definitely below average (though within the \"normal\" range), I do still wonder if I too suffer from dysmorphia?
I have always been one hundred percent happy with my length. If my girth had been closer to 5\" I know in my of hearts that I would not have ended up on this forum. As a teenager I just did not want to be below average in length or girth.
However I see guys here that are around that 5\" EG mark and still seem to be unhappy, still want more even though they are already fairly well hung when erect.
Even though I think I possibly have slightly more of a case for seeking girth enlargement than some of those guys, I am at the moment not considering any procedures though I am keeping an eye on pmma to see how it fairs long term.
So yeah, this post was much larger than necessary. Do you think me not being a hundred percent happy with the 4\" girth of my perfectly functioning penis means I have penile dysmorphia to some degree?
The definition is based on OCD. To have \"dysmorphia\" - you have to be constantly thinking about the problem - to the point where it interferes with your life. It doesn\'t seem like you fit that definition.
Within that, things are not so black and white. The whole body dysmorphia thing started with people obsessed with their faces - and it would consume their thoughts to the point that was all they could think about. And, they\'d get plastic surgery endlessly to the point they looked awful. Michael Jackson obviously had it - but it wasn\'t a known disorder yet. It\'s a form of OCD. A girl who gets teased every day about her huge nose in school and obsesses over fixing it - and gets a nose job - and is happy - probably wasn\'t \"dysmorphic\"...she was just responding to the reality of the situation (though conversely, some people are like teflon to this kind of teasing - I don\'t know how). If the girl then proceeded to get 10 nose jobs and constantly Repair minute asymmetries, to the point where it becomes similar to OCD, then it fits under body dysmorphia. It\'s a grey area to an extent. there are also people into body modifications (piercings, extreme tattoos) that aren\'t dysmorphic... or people who just have different goals... for whatever reason. The main criteria from a psychological perspective is that it has to interfere with your daily life to be a disorder.
I personally believe there are many on here that have dysmorphia but I believe just as many if not more just have fragile egos . And it is not as much as they think they have small dicks but just want to be the biggest Dick. Everyone has their issue, some are valid some not. I agree that you do not seem to have dysmorphia to me and you seem pretty level headed. One who is just trying to better themselves for the right reason , that is not a problem in my opinion. If most of us worked on who we are, more than what our dicks are. Most problems solved and I say that as a man who struggled with this at one time.
