Look, when you don’t have a particular appendage, it’s kind of hard to understand all its intricacies. Basically, our knowledge of penises revolves directly around what we can do with them in bed. And even then, there’s still a lot of mystery – especially with ones we might not have seen before.
Turns out, there are a lot of things men want us to know about their most favourite toy. Mic.com asked them to share those things. ‘We surveyed a random sampling of 20-something men via Google, and their candid responses are full of revelations in the field of dickology*,’ they wrote on their site. Here are our fave responses. Thanks Mic!
Every penis has a preference in bed.
‘Don’t assume what worked for one guy works for all guys. Judge by what’s working in the moment.’

‘It’s sensitive to alcohol, prescription meds and just about everything else I might put into my body. My erections tend to vary accordingly.’

There isn’t one way a penis should look.
‘Not all penises look like a dong from porn. There is a kind of beauty in dicks with shapes… Like, don’t run away just because my dick is curved.’
Circumcision (or lack thereof) plays a big role in what feels good.
‘How you jerk off an uncut penis compared to cut matters. Cut needs lubricant or a much looser grip.’
Not all penises like being sucked.
‘My penis is really quite large. While this is mostly really great, it can lead to issues with oral sex, which is generally not all that pleasurable for me.’
