Lawrence Barraclough - My Penis and Everyone Else's

A few days ago I posted the documentary, My Penis and I, by Lawrence Barraclough, so this is the sequel - My Penis and Everyone Else's, in which he examines just why men have such a difficulty in talking openly about our penises.

My Penis And Everyone Else’s challenges society’s stereotypes of masculinity as well as getting to the heart of why men are so fixated with their members.

Emotional, revelatory, and intensely engaging, this film takes on one of society’s last taboos and culminates in one of the most daring exhibitions ever seen in the UK, as Lawrence puts together the world’s largest collection of penis portraiture ever seen!

“I do think pornography and the way it seeped into culture has had some effect because it’s so saturated, it’s so become a norm that people are seeing sex and their bodies through a completely distorted lens.” -Rowan Peeling, Former Editor of the Erotic Review.

Very interesting share. It's quite ironic men, including myself, have difficulty discussing about our penis, when our penis's are something that's very, very, important to us. Thanks for post.

I have an average sized penis and have no problems discussing it.

I think this is all a fallacy.

I also felt that the documentary was very biased to the maker's own experiences and not thos found generally. He went looking for the outcome he was sure to be married with his own insecurities.

Some men have tiny, miscue penises and it is this I feel for.

Also, think about it, a penis is only half the equation, it is only too small if the vagina is too big for it. Vaginas do come in all shapes and sizes too you know.

(two women I have slept with felt my average sized penis was too big for them.....)
