Icon204 Asian sexuality rumors

Comment: This rumor is not a new rumor but a rumor that I'm asked all the
time. I am a woman of asian decent and awhile I served in the Marine Corps
I've had men approach me and ask if it's true. The question is does the
asian vagina slant the other way, i.e. instead of the slit being vertical
it's horizonal. I know it's stupid and totally not true. Not to mention
really rude. The second question that they ask is if asian male really do
have small penises unfortunaly I belive it's true. I can't confirm it
since I have never really seen an asian male's genitals. But I have over
heard male members of my family, when they've gotten quite of bit to
drink, descrbing how they've seen american pornos and that porn stars have
increbily huge penis. I know kinda gross converstation.
Anyway, I was suprised when I searched your site, and didn't find anything
on it. I'm sure my search will end up on your weirdest search page. I hope
I gave insight or atleast gave a new rumor to post.

If you are a woman, I would really hope that you know that it is not true.

Come on Gemini, it isn't nice to pick on pour spelingg...

I have heard much the same... Asian men are about .5 inches smaller in length on average than a Caucasian (even they don't come from the Caucasus!). It was about 20 years ago, and for some reason I keep thinking that Masters and Johnson had something to do with it.

As for comparing ANYTHING to what you see in porn... fuggedaboudit. Neither of the genders are close to actual human standards.

Seems like she is need of a lesson on syllogism among other things.

Asian people have been smaller in build for many years, it isn't too surprising that penis size is proportional to build size.

Penis Size article


Quote:
A survey in October 2004 conducted in Hong Kong, measured the flaccid penis size of 148 ethnic Chinese volunteers aged between 23 and 93. The average length of their flaccid penises was 8.46cm which compared favourably with similar studies on other men overseas. Chan Lung Wai director of the Urology Center at the Union Hospital who headed the study suggested that "Hong Kong people are no smaller than western men, where their penises are concerned". Other studies of average penis lengths conducted on men overseas included Germans 8.6cm, Israelis 8.3cm, Indians 8.7, Turks 7.8, Filipinos 7.35, Armenians 8.7, Greeks 8.6, Nigerians 9.2, Americans 8.8 and Italians at 9cm.

If you're half-asian does it slant at 45 degrees?

You can't really judge the average length of a westerners penis from porn movies, they tend to be cast because of their size so are unrepresentative.

Nope. "L" or "" shaped, depending on which parent was Asian.

I have a book of "Sexual Records" that quotes average penile size in different ethnic groups. According to that book, Oriental gents were at the lower end of the distribution bell curve. Asian (Indian subcontinent, Thailand etc) were, on average, better endowed. The other groupings were white European, Arab and African. I haven't conducted my own surveys.

"It ain't the meat, it's the motion."

But I suppose that sounds just like something an average guy would say!

"It's not the size of wand - it's the skill of the wizard that waves it."

(From the wife of a colleague, long before it sounded like something from Harry Potter, said colleague claims to be "hung like a hamster")

I have a feeling that this may have started as a racist joke: "they have slanted eyes; what else is slanted?"

I am a white man married to a philippine woman. Neither body parts are particularly slanted. Grouping various peoples as "asian" makes as much sense as grouping sicilians and swedes together as "european"

To the second point, my wife told me that her first husband (a philippino) was a little bigger in that respect. She says that he was too big and I'm just right. The problem is basing expectation of groups based on comparing mean values. The bell curves overlap. Just because Group B has a bigger one than group A on average does not mean that all members of group B are bigger than all members of group A.

Finally using porn actors as a reference for penis length is like using NBA players as a reference for height.

Have a perspective.

TMI TMI!

My first husband is Asian. He's from Ho Chi Minh City, to be exact. I've seen a lot of genitals in my life, and had a good idea of what average looked like. He was, in my opinion, a good bit on the small side. He knew this and would joke about it with me in private. It never seemed to be a source of insecurity from him. I know he was just one asian man and in no way representative.

My second husband is white, and while he was probably the owner of the twenty something set of white jewels I've seen, I visibly recoiled the first time I saw him pantsless. I remember wondering how he could possibly walk. He later told me he never really thought his was above average, because he only saw erect penises in porn, and his was very similar. Again- my husband is but one white man and in no way representative.

So, in closing: if you already have a smaller than average penis, porn will only make you feel less than adequate. If you have a freakishly gargantuan penis, porn will reinforce that you have normal genitals when you do not.

Look up any web site with Asian porn in the title, you'll see it ain't true...

But...who cares about flaccid size?

From the Wiki:
Quote:
A man with a smaller flaccid penis may grow to a much larger size when erect, or not, as a man with a larger flaccid penis size may grow much larger, or not. The slang term for this disparity refers to a penis being a "grower" or a "shower", the former being a flaccid penis that becomes significantly larger when erect, the latter being a penis that does not change much in size in the transition between flaccid and erect.
There's no cite, but I've always suspected that.

As for the "horizontal slit"...that's so There's another instance where Asian porn could be educational.

Not to thread-jack, but my iSO told me that his penis has been getting larger throughout his adulthood. He thinks it's because he uses it so much. Does anyone know anything about this purported phenomenon?

I'm a woman who appreciates both men and women, so needless to say I have quite a few "Dirty" magazines. Most of them are actually from an Asian market near me, one of their stores sells porn. Now those mags are all in Chinese (I know that cause my sister's friend is Chinese and she told me) Anyway I never noticed anything different about an Asian woman's body....if anything they are MORE HOT then white women IMHO! LoL!

Slightly off topic, but it is rumoured that black men have larger penises than other races. Is there a corresponding rumour (which I would expect) that black women are larger inside in order to accommodate them?

That has to just be a lead in to saying he needs help to work it out / maintain it's bulk etc.

(Muscle develops from use, the penis isn't muscle. Getting in shape can I believe make things look bigger because it reduces the fat around that area, but otherwise - that sounds like rubbish or wishful thinking).

I can state that I have been using mine extensively since I was about 13, and it ain't so.

Or did he imply that it was supposed to be used on OTHER people?!?!

Color me embarrassed...

I would lay money on the fact that you read that in an advert for the pump.

The only legit way to get penis growth is to either get an erection - or use a magnifying glass. Enlargement surgery will only add girth.

Wasn't there a southpark episode which indeed proved that the Japanese penis is smaller than the American penis? Brilliant marketing tool to sell us world dominating pikachus!
