    You sound great!

    I ofter wonder if men would be as uncomfortable with their penis if men were like woman and their breast.

    Woman can’t really hide their breats, they can make them bigger, but for the most part you know what are getting into.

    The man’s penis is basically always hidden which leads to many men feeling uncomfortable when they have to bring it out. Whether it is the movies, the pool, etc..you just don’t have the visual information about a man’s penis that you do for a women’s breast.

    Men are left comparing themselves to pornstars or truthfulness of their partner. Either way..i see how penile anxiety is manifested.
