I’ve dated men who are both big and small but when it comes to size does it really matter, asks Vanessa Feltz 0 172

BRITISH men have come 66th in an international study of penis sizes from around the world.

They measured up at an average of 5.17in when erect, compared to our French neighbours at 6.20in.

Vanessa Feltz and partner Ben Ofoedu Vanessa says: ‘I’d like to know who got the job of chief measurer?’

Firstly, I’d like to know who got the job of chief measurer?

I’m a little disappointed nobody asked me. I have a radio show and am a grandmother of three, but I could have found time to squeeze that in as a little side hustle.

Secondly, I don’t know how you would substantiate such a list.

It seems to be pseudoscience of a positively anti-British nature and I would be devastated if any of my countrymen were to feel in any way less manly and exquisitely endowed.

I’ve had a penis on my arm for six years… now I finally feel like a real man


I’m a GP and here’s the answers to 4 penis questions you’re too afraid to ask

But does size actually matter?

To answer this question leaves me in somewhat of a dilemma, because women of a certain maturity know there is something you tell gentlemen and then there is something you secretly think to yourself.

I can give you the answer I would put forward in mixed company, which is: Absolutely not. All that really matters is the motion in the ocean.

It’s about the energy, foreplay and romantic titillation of the encounter, not the acreage, square footage, diameter or circumference.

Stacey Solomon transforms a boring turtle sandpit using two simple steps

That’s the answer I’ve given both privately and publicly over the years.

But in truth, and I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings here, for a man to unveil a small appendage, it’s impossible not to feel a slight frisson of disappointment.


However, I will add that in my experience, this disappointment is not always well founded.

A recent study found that size DOES matter.

Researchers at King’s College in London recruited 12 couples and reduced the size of the man’s appendage by an inch using a silicone ring around the base.

The couples had intercourse with and without the rings and the results showed the extra inch improved the sexual pleasure for the women.

But these were existing couples — of course the women were used to their partner’s natural length. To cut it short would no doubt change their sexual experience somewhat.

But I wouldn’t say that big is always necessarily better.

I’ll never forget in my wanton youth an encounter with a professional bodybuilder, which in those days was even more of a rare sight than it is now.

Frankly, the size of his biceps did establish a certain level of great expectations for what would be down below.

I remember the terrific shock to the system when I realised that although he’d developed his glutes and his pecs, there was one part of his body that lifting weights simply wouldn’t elongate.

The initial disappointment remains with me to this day.

Similarly, I can’t erase from my memory the cataclysmic shock when a slight gentleman of fairly diminutive frame turned out to possess a lunchbox of such grand dimensions. It was the stuff of fantasy.

My discretion compels me to draw a veil upon how deeply I explored the endowments of these two distinguished gentlemen.

But I can say that the bodybuilder displayed an ardour and endurance that more than made up for any shortcomings.

The small, thin fellow was so frighteningly well-endowed I was too intimidated to partake.

You see, us women know that it’s not all about penetration.

One study from Indiana University in the US found that 36.6 per cent of women needed clitoral stimulation to reach climax, and in that case, it would follow that the size of the penis matters far less.

Men who might be less endowed should hopefully find other, more creative, ways to please their partner.

Frankly, if the unsheathing of the sword reveals a somewhat miniature piece of equipment, that’s when women should remind themselves of the sensible advice that’s been given since time began: It’s about how it’s used and who you are with — and whether you actually fancy them or not.

The small, thin fellow was so frighteningly well-endowed I was too intimidated to partake.

You sharply jolly yourself out of that disappointment by reminding yourself very swiftly not to take these things at face value.  And certainly not to whip out your tape measure.


While you want a man who is at least in a proportion — not vastly out of kilter with the shape of the rest of him — I do believe that if someone is very sexy, talented at what they do in the boudoir department and takes the time (someone who smells nice, is a good kisser and doesn’t fumble around in an unpleasant way) then the size just becomes much less relevant and pivotal.

But if the person is really clumsy, cack-handed and selfish, then the fact their penis is piffling will seem quite relevant.

If you fall for a man and love him unconditionally, then his penis is just a part of him.

But if you don’t love him then it’s easier to focus on the size, and you think, “Actually mate, never again. You have a penis like an acorn and I’m not into it.”

But I would add, and this is very important, you never say so. That’s the golden rule.

Never exclaim about the lack of girth or length. You must absolutely train yourself never to look horrified or pull out a magnifying glass.

You must always look enthralled and thrilled to bits. Always. That is fundamental to good manners.

And when it comes to my Ben? The thing that attracted me was his smile.

Supporting Ukraine Through Purchasing Power: The Initiatives Keeping the Country’s Economy Afloat 0 173

Amidst the Russian invasion, Ukrainian creatives are launching initiatives to keep the country’s economy going by harnessing consumer power. Spend With Ukraine is one such online resource that connects consumers to Ukraine-based businesses across various industries, while the Ukrainian Emergency Art Fund allows for donations to support artists. Co-founder of Spend With Ukraine, Andrey Klen, emphasizes the importance of supporting the Ukrainian economy through purchasing decisions. He states, “Armies win battles, but economies win wars.”

Ukrainian brands are still operating and many are donating a portion of their sales to different needs to support the country. To sustain interest in supporting Ukraine through spending, increasing the visibility of these initiatives is key. As Klen says, “We want it to blow out.” These efforts not only help Ukrainian creatives but also support existing industries and provide a sense of normality in these difficult times.

Ensuring Safety and Consent in the Adult Film Industry: A Vital Discussion 0 258

One topic that may be of interest to readers in the adult film industry is the topic of workplace safety and consent.

The adult film industry, like any other industry, has a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of its workers. This includes providing a safe working environment, protecting workers from physical and emotional harm, and ensuring that all acts are consensual. However, the nature of the adult film industry can make it difficult to ensure that these standards are met. Actors and actresses may feel pressure to perform acts that they are not comfortable with, and there have been instances of abuse and exploitation in the industry.

To address these issues, it is essential for the industry to have clear guidelines and policies in place to protect the rights and safety of workers. This includes providing education and resources for performers, implementing strict consent protocols, and holding producers and directors accountable for ensuring a safe working environment.

Another important aspect of this topic is the importance of consent in adult film. Consent is a crucial aspect of any sexual encounter and must be obtained freely, enthusiastically, and without coercion. In the adult film industry, where performers are engaging in sexual acts on camera, it is especially important that consent is explicitly obtained and respected. This can be achieved through the use of consent forms and communication between performers before and during filming.

By discussing these topics, the industry can work towards creating a safer and more respectful environment for all performers and ensure that the rights and well-being of workers are protected.
