As Dennis points out, it does break a man’s heart (and ego) when he realises that he cannot sexually satisfy his partner.
“Why do you think men go berserk when they learn that their wives or girlfriends are cheating on them? It is the horror, the imagination that the other man could be better endowed and, therefore, more adept at the game.
“Men will, therefore, do anything to ensure their equip ment is geared up for action because they believe only that can satisfy their partners. It also makes them feel good about themselves.
“That is why men who are well endowed spend hours admiring themselves in the bathroom mirror, unlike the less endowed who avoid bathroom mirrors like the plague,” says Denis.
Dr Gidraph Wairire, a sociology lecturer at the University of Nairobi, attributes this craze to the societal stereotype that bigger is definitely better.
“It is not so much about the size, but the society’s perception. We live in a society that has sexualised everything. People tend to feel that the bigger the organ, the better the individual, thereby creating this stereotype,” he says.
This stereotype, according to the sociologist, creates a lot of expectations when it comes to a man’s sexuality because sexual prowess is normally associated with the size of his organ. It is for this reason that men who have smaller organs generally have an inferiority complex because society believes if it is not big enough, then you are not worth it.
“Absolutely yes!” says the lecturer. “The anatomical make-up of wo men is such that sex enjoy ment depends on their emotional connection with the man. It is, therefore, possible to conquer this stereotype and the couple can enjoy sex,”
For men with whose lives are darkened by small sexual organs, Dr Wairire advises them to boost self-esteem to get over this stereotype.
“If a person for instance is one-legged, they do not just sit and remain hopeless. Many overcome the handicap and live fulfilling lives. In the same way, men with smaller organs must understand themselves, boost their self esteem and move on with life,” says Dr Wairire.
