Men with exceptionally large penises. Is it true they can never become fully "rock hard" erect?

A normal teen aged to middle aged male with a normal sized sized penis can usually get a rock hard erection if sufficiently stimulated that stands up by itself, and that you could hang an umbrella or two on. Do men with exceptionally large penises, say 9 inches and longer, become fully erect in this "rock hard" fashion or not?

Many pornos would say "yes" (although I have no idea if they are aided by medications).

In the pornography I've seen, men swinging huge pipe almost never have their penises standing at attention. I was wondering if this true of huge penises generally. To be clear I'm not saying they don't have an erection, I'm just saying that erection cannot (apparently) stand up at attention like a more normally sized penis can.

Is this need answer fast?

As far as I can tell, they can't. It may be possible with the aid of certain devices, but not alone.

Not speaking from any sort of real knowledge, just my WAG:

The bigger it is, the heavier it will be, and therefore the more difficult to reach the "stands up by itself, and that you could hang an umbrella or two on" of the OP. But that will only affect the angle at which it stands/protrudes/hangs from the body, and does not necessarily affect whether or not it is "rock hard", i.e. resistant to bending.

Yes. My "post" is my cite.


(Sorry, couldn't resist. Yes, I'm lying, and pictures of my cite won't be forthcoming.)


(And that last word was not intended as a pun.)

I watched a short documentary-type show talking to the man with the currently largest penis in the world, two feet when fully rock hard, nine inches when flaccid. He said that it was very difficult to get to his two foot rock hard state, not impossible though, just difficult.

He also said that every woman that says size doesn't matter is totally interested in him only for his penis.

This guy? He's got a weapon but it's not 2 feet long.

This question comes up very often, and I always give the citation from an interview by the pornstar Seka, who said that John Holmes was never rock hard, and it felt like a slug moving in and out of her.

If you look up her interviews, I'm sure you'll find her statement. What other citation could there be? I don't know if the Journal of Human Sexuality ever get a group of men together, showed them all porn, and correlated length to turgidity with a analytical instrument of some sort. But until someone shows up with such an article, we'll just have to go by what Seka said. Presumably, she would know, and as she was in the porn business, not ashamed to mention it.

IIRC Holmes was a significant hard drug addict, and in not in the best of health overall. I'm wondering if her single sample is really representative of the cohort of all men with super sized penises.

My guess would be that there may be a maximum amt. Of blood that can be used for the process of hardening the penis before other parts of the body have trouble functioning. I am not a doctor, but I would think that the brain, for example would require a minimum amount of blood to function properly... When you have a large member, it may not be able to draw enough blood from the body without causing the guy to collapse, or at least get light headed and faint.

Even if we ignore that (and any drugs that might not be conducive to the situation), there's the stage crew and cameras on you, the stressful atmosphere, the fact that they might not be at all attracted to the person that they're filming the scene with (physically or otherwise) and it might be their third, forth or fifth shot (pun intended) of the day.

No one said he had to be a porn actor, just an average guy with an exceptionally large penis.

My wife worked in the ER at Cedars-Sinai for over a decade. She said that when John Holmes was there, the nurses got into brawling matches over who was going to give him his sponge bath.

A lot of books on the history of porn eventually get around to discussing this in the case of John Holmes. Some women were quoted as saying that he never got fully hard and some were quoted as saying that he did.

Here's one cite. Click the top page link that appears.

I just figured I would put that out there since the cites that have come in (and likely will come in) have been people in porn.
For example it was said that John Holmes was never fully erect, but in the interest of the question, we'd have to know what he was like at home with someone he was attracted to and not on any drugs. Or what he was like before getting into porn if that makes for a better comparison.
The problem is, the average guy with the exceptionally large penis doesn't tend to go around telling people that he can, in fact, get it fully erect and he's less likely to tell people that he can't.
It's going to be hard to get any real data on this short of talking to a urologist. Actually come to think of it, one might be able to find some actual data by looking at urology websites. That might be a good place to start.

Exactly... this is what I was referring to.

maybe there is a penis size to blood volume ratio to where any more blood required to make your penis more erect is diverted from your penis when the rest of your body needs the oxygenated blood for other functions.

Guys with smaller erections never reach that point...

Of course, this is just a theory and is not based in medical fact.


I would think that porn stars that require their penises to perform may have a different tolerance level, and perhaps they can build up the "strength" of their penis over time like a weight lifter, but if you have 2 feet of erection to fill out, that is a LOT of blood that is being used for that one function. The body may object.

According to this site the average penis has a length about 3 times it's diameter.
http://ezinearticles.com/?FAQs-About...ize?&id=588538

This guy has a penis that is 24cm long flaccid and 34cm erect.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonah_Falcon

If we assume his penis is a cylinder I calculate its volume would be approximately 1200 cubic centimetres (cc) flaccid and 3400cc erect. From that I would assume it takes 2200cc of blood to get erect.

I believe you generally give approximately 500cc of blood when you donate at a blood bank, which leaves some people woozy, which leads me to think it would be difficult for this guy to get erect.

Obviously this is a pretty rough calculation and maybe someone could expand on it. Also, it's entirely possible I made a mistake in my maths.

I saw a documentary (no, really!) about the guy who supposedly had the world record penis. I don't recall if it's the guy discussed above or not. He said it was very very difficult to get a full erection.

My partner's penis is in this size range, and it can get rock-hard about 50% of the time it's aroused. It depends on so many factors: the type of stimulation, time since last orgasm, general fatigue, what he's been eating or drinking, his level of concentration, his general health, etc. When it is fully erect, I don't recall him ever complaining about feeling light-headed. And I haven't noticed any change in the years we've been together (aging from 22 to 46).

One factor that may be relevant is that some penises, like my partner's, are already close to their erect size when flaccid, so they don't have to grow as much (they are "showers" rather than "growers"). It seems that they don't need as much blood to get them hard.

What I have heard is that the bigger it is when flaccid, the less it will grow when erect, so that most erect penises are close to the same size, regardless of the flaccid size (obviously, there are exceptions).

From all the examples I've seen, most that are well above average are still able to achieve rock hard and fully erect status.

There were some that didn't get rock hard but I found those instances to be on par with the general averages regardless of size in such respects.

*Based on some personal and mostly professional past experiences*

There is a forum for guys with large penises, it might be a better place to ask. It is NSFW as there are pictures.

Don't really plan to check it out, but I am curious what the forum atmosphere is-- non-stop boasting and high-fiving? Sneakbrag laments about the difficulty finding a woman (or man) who can handle you? Snarky comments about Dirk Diggler's tiny cock?

I've heard that too, and it's not true. Erect penises are not even close to the same size, even discounting "exceptions." They come in a wide variety of lengths and widths and shapes (I know someone with an L-shaped penis) and colors . . . and tastes and smells and responsiveness.

A quick check of the wiki article on erections shows the following:

Quote:
Although many erect penises point upwards, it is common and normal for the erect penis to point nearly vertically upwards or nearly vertically downwards or even horizontally straight forward, all depending on the tension of the suspensory ligament that holds it in position.
This suggests to me that erection angle has little to do with size.

More to the point, she's never been a bored teenaged boy.

I've never seen a 34cm penis, but I've seen a 29 or 30cm one, and no, he didn't have any problem getting it to point due north, as it were. Of course, he was 17 at the time; no idea how things have held up now that he's pushing 40. Most mens' erections soften a bit with age.

Like Alka Seltzer says, it's more to do with the ligaments than the size. And, to a small degree, the strength of the pelvic floor muscles. (I love how y'all can make it bounce if you flex just right!)

Well, yes there is some of that, but in general it seems a good nature forum*. There is advice for sex, finding comfortable clothes, and other issues.

(*It's been awhile since I been over there, so it may have change some.)

In one of Wambaugh's police stories, the term "diamond cutter" was bandied about.

I recall the "back in army camp" stories of an old late buddy who described what he and his fellows got up to when they were bored during the Korean War. they would line up a row of quarters on the table starting from the edge and see who could knock the most money off the table.

The champion, he said, he said, would knock off $3.00 which is about 12 inches; the braggart would also run down the middle of the barracks with a rifle hanging off his prize possession. My first thought was that you can gain an inch or more over the official Guiness measurement size by pressing up against the table hard... but still...

Of course, when he told these war stories to his son and I we kind of looked at him funny and said "Are you sure you guys weren't wishing you were in the navy instead? Who's idea was it to do this?" But he had enough extra stories of escapes by jumping out the window of whorehouses into the drainage (sewage) canal, or beating the crap out of a self-important American MP troop that tried to arrest partying Canadians, or the guy who accidentally burned down the whole village when he waved a lit torch at the madam while threatening her building and demanding his change...

Ah, those were the days. So he said, anyway.
