A few days ago, someone asked me how “large” my male appendage was. This question came from a homosexual man. The statement was along the lines of “If you are less than 9 inches, then you are no good as a partner.”
I smiled and stated that I would not be sharing that information. However, I have no issue stating that I DO NOT meet the said 9 inch requirement. Everyone who was around laughed, and we moved on to another topic.
I know many people who would have taken offense to a question like that. Some people are not very comfortable with being asked questions like that. I understand, it is pretty personal, and out of pocket. In my case, it doesn’t phase me. If you follow my writing, you know that I had my “man tool’ grabbed by an older gay man at the gym, and all things considered, I handled that situation rather well.
If I can handle being molested by an older man, in a relatively calm nature, being asked my “size” clearly wouldn’t even phase me. I’m not gay, I am attracted to women. Period. No, I’m not even a little bit gay, and yes I wore tight velvet pants and pink shirts to the club! So what? LOL. Even so, I can take a compliment from a man, and I have no qualms about paying another man a compliment.
This isn’t to say that I am better, or lesser than other men. Everyone is different, and I respect that. I have friends who I grew up with who would probably be in prison today if what happened to me at the gym happened to them. That’s their prerogative, I’m not judging, but from my perspective, it’s not that serious.
What are your thoughts on this topic? Are you comfortable receiving compliments, or advances from the same sex? Are you secure in your sexuality, or are you more reserved? There is no right or wrong answer, just your preference!
