a penis is…

last week i posted an image of a fine looking man and his cock. i was surprised by the men who responded on twitter with phrases that included words like ‘vomit’, ‘disgusting’, ‘never’… i was surprised because:

a) it was a beautiful picture

b) i’ve never had that response from women about the nudies i post of other women

c) it smacks of, if not homophobia, at least an unhealthy sense of sex and self/other

oh eeew he said peeeenaaaahss

oh eeew she said peeeenaaaahss

it got me thinking about the whole goose/gander issue when it comes to many heteronormative men: hey baby, you should totally dig a threesome with me and another chick BUT a threesome with you and another man? no freaking way. that’s, like, another man’s SCHLONG dude.

or, my personal favourite: hey baby, let me fuck you up the arse cos that’s totally awesome BUT there’s no way you’re putting a strap-on on and fucking me up the arse. that’s gay.

so i’d like to start addressing some of these perceptions and my first attempt to do so is to look at what we see a penis as, like what i did with the ‘a vagina is’ series a few weeks back? that.

is this better ya'll?

is this better ya’ll?


a penis is…

drop me a mail, tweet or leave a comment (read: leave a comment) to finish the sentence.

love and hugs




  1. I love the penis. I have a healthy interest in the penis too- love watching guys interact with thier when they peeing at the urinal or checking if they lie to the left or the right. When people talk about being breast men or leg men – I’m a dick man. The first thing that comes into my mind if I meet a guy that I like- what is his dick like. Fortunately, there’s enough variety of penises that it’s like a box of chocolates out there.

    I wish more guys would pay closer attention to their hygiene down there – nothing worse than a manky penis (unless you’re into that). And manscaping – a little tidy up is cool but to go the full Brazilian just doesn’t work on a guy. (Or me!).

  3. A Penis is:

    Delight defined:
    1. please (someone) greatly.
    2. take great pleasure in.

    noun: delight
    1. great pleasure.

    I love my penis. It truly is delightful. My girlfriend loves it even more, delighting in kissing, rubbing and playing with it. She loves it inside of her and against her and I love that she does just as much.

    My penis can be comical and can make us both laugh. It can also be very serious and to the point. Yes… I know… I couldn’t resist the pun.

    I can appreciate a picture of a good looking cock and would never begrudge my girl her right to look at and enjoy one. There are few things as sexy as the image of a woman getting the best out of a hard penis.

    My penis is me. I do not treat it as separate from me, but rather revel in the fact that I have such a magnificent and enjoyable appendage.

  4. delectable…

  5. Love my penis!!! And I do enjoy seeing a pic of a good looking penis, no I am not goy but rather open minded and let’s face it, I enjoy looking at my cock so why not someone else’s?

  6. A Penis was something everyone could talk about, but not about a vagina. Nowadays, things have changed. For me, a penis is what keeps men from growing up. If man A tells another man B to “grow up”, man A clearly lost his penis. I love mine. It’s awesome to pee in public (apologies). Seeing a picture of a naked attractive man? So what? His body looks good. My wife would say so too

  7. A penis could be your maker or destroyer, depending on your emotions at the time.

    Also an awesome thing to have when you camp, or have snow in your back yard ;)

  8. My favourite toy that brings me so much joy!!

    September 12, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    September 23, 2011 at 10:32 am
  12. haha Yeah writing your name in the snow or even on a wall is one of my favorite things to do!! Its the small things in life that count … lol

    September 22, 2011 at 12:15 pm
  13. A penis is……as awesome as a cold beer on a hot day or a hot curry on a cold day ;-)

  14. maybe just realised that intimacy is what women want when they are lonely and insecure, and what they get, is sex. if you are horny, get a man or a vibrator. if you want intimacy, get a lesbian.
    as you can gather, i think my allready failing faith in romance has croaked it last falsetto.

    July 20, 2011 at 4:31 pm
  15. my all time favourite toy!

    July 18, 2011 at 10:50 am
  16. A penis is a mouthful :)

    July 6, 2011 at 2:36 pm
  17. after reading some of your comments and questions, i’m really curious about what happens on the inside of your brain re sex, bodies and intimacy…

    July 5, 2011 at 4:52 pm
  18. a penis is a means to an end. pro-creation.
    everthing behind the erect penis is what matters. and while there is much to be said about having a hard one at your service, a soft pair of lips and dextrious fingers take precidence over a penis any day.

    July 5, 2011 at 1:35 pm
  19. A penis is also called a piel, dick, schlong, johnson, tottie, tollie, piepie, tros, cock, dong…Sorry I couldn’t think of anything clever to say. I do not mind at all that you post pics of naked men – there’s plenty penises in “straight” porn so what’s the big deal? As a hetero dude I can appreciate a good looking naked dude (and wish I looked like that!).

  20. BIG Brother to the clitoris

    July 5, 2011 at 2:31 am
  21. a penis is: something that’s not to nice to look at yet, it gets to be put in to something beautiful

    July 4, 2011 at 9:15 am
  22. Even more interesting considering I’m not straight (and yes, I am aware of the difference between heteronormative and heterosexual)… Thanks for the comment, it’s really got me thinking…

    June 30, 2011 at 9:36 am
  23. standard hetronormative response… which is a shame because that is a great picture, and a fine penis.

    June 29, 2011 at 10:29 pm
  24. A penis is… The thing I love to hate and the thing I hate to love…

    June 29, 2011 at 10:13 pm
  25. Mistress Black, you promised more yummy man pics! Instead you post that nasty biology text book penis pic. Shame on you!
    Praise the peen!

  31. ah yes. of course. abbreviating, much like voice recognition, is not one of my strong points.

  32. ED = Erectile disfunction- most of the time it refers to premature ejaculation or the inability to get an erection in the first place. ;)

    June 29, 2011 at 11:28 am
  36. of course. but if your penis outsmarts your brains, you have a problem.

    June 29, 2011 at 11:27 am
  37. love this comment. so true.

    June 29, 2011 at 11:26 am
  38. this is a very confusing comment. maybe because i am being Bear of Little Brain today. What is ED?

    June 29, 2011 at 11:26 am
  39. To be enjoyed and to enjoy

    June 29, 2011 at 11:17 am
  40. It’s good to listen to your unfettered view but sometimes ED makes ones best friend a liability. The example shown was good as it gets but female vag comparisons are probably hard to find. Love your chutspa.

  41. Something I never thought I would appreciate as much as I do now

    June 29, 2011 at 10:50 am

    June 29, 2011 at 9:42 am
  46. I commented on the vagina one before, but a penis is gloriously hard and soft at the same time. Like a velvet-covered piece of steel.

    Probably a good part of why I can;t leave my poor bf alone… lol.

    June 29, 2011 at 9:33 am
  47. Hahaha.. I am a huge fan! Of penii and of you of course.. Proud you like it!

  50. a penis is the Y Chromosone carrier, perpetuating the male of the species

    June 29, 2011 at 9:09 am
  54. a penis is a weapon of mass seduction

    June 29, 2011 at 9:07 am
  55. a penis is fun, sexy and satisfying.. a prick is the rest of him.
