The dick. The cock. The male organ of higher vertebrates. To some it is seen as a representation of masculinity, and in some cases, status of dominance - but should this swinging piece of flesh be taken so seriously? We want to put the fun back in the cock and get a better understanding of the personal connection between tool and its owner, through a series of short conversations.
A quick exchange of emails and some small talk, Tim send over these wonderful images for us to share with you all. Keen to answer the questions, we dove straight in.
Where is the strangest place you’ve pulled out your dick?
One time I pulled out my dick on a public bus. It was very late at night, and it was just me and another guy, both sitting alone in the back. He couldn’t see it, but he knew it was out. He didn’t take his eyes off me for miles.
When you pulled it out, how did you feel? It takes a lot to do that, what was going through your head? Were you hoping he would look?
I think that night was probably the first time I ever went out to a club alone, on my own. I don’t know what the other guy had been doing that night, but I had been dancing and drinking and flirting, so my energy was high, and my frame of mind was focused on getting attention. Pulled my dick out because I could, and because I wanted SOMEONE to see it! There are so many taboos about a dick, especially a dick in public.
I was young and stupid and the risk was a bit of a thrill. I didn’t know if anyone would actually see it, or what would happen if someone did. Looking back on it, I was really lucky that no one actually saw anything; I didn’t get in any trouble, but the thrill of the risk was huge!
Do you feel self-conscious about your dick?
I feel self-conscious about my dick most of the time. We all want to be longer, thicker, harder, whatever. For me it’s less about size and more about being circumcised. Being American, we all were circumcised for a long time. But seeing what I’m missing…Who wouldn’t feel a little self-conscious?
Having foreskin is fun, I especially enjoy it. Do you like it on other guys? Many have a fetish for foreskin, do you think you’re one of them?
Despite my little insecurity about it, I really like foreskin on other guys! I can’t say that I fetishise the foreskin — there’s good reason to do so! — but the “otherness” of it is so interesting.
If you could change one thing about your dick what would it be?
If I could change one thing about my dick, I’d straighten out the curve. From the right angle, the curve isn’t even there. From the wrong angle, my dick looks pretty small. I love a rod-straight dick!
You’d like a straighter dick? Is this purely for aesthetic?
I suppose the straight dick, without a curve (which is very common, if you look around) is only an aesthetic criticism. If you’re gonna show it off, and welcome critique from a partner or a lurker or a creative audience, you want it to look perfect.
It looks pretty great to me. Do you show it off often?
I think there are two kinds of men in the world; those who show it off, and the who hide it. The only common place I can do that without being crazy is the locker room at the gym. When I’m in a place where being nude is appropriate, I do it, but not in a brazened way, but in the sense that I’m not hiding anything. I’m not fearful or embarrassed. I think you have be calm, cool and collected to just exhale, drop your towel, and relax! It’s a sure sign of confidence.
What’s your favourite thing about your dick?
My favourite thing about my dick is that I get hard for no reason at all. If you point a camera in my direction, I get hard. If I’m naked, especially around other guys, I get hard. I’ve been told by a couple photographers that my face changes when they shoot me nude, even if it’s just shooting my face. And they mean that in a good way!
What’s the best way to get rid of these spontaneous erections?
There are times when the spontaneous erection doesn’t matter, like when I’m on set with a photographer and it’s just the two of us, and neither of us are worried about it. When you can make someone safe enough to actually admit they’ve had the spontaneous erection, or seen it, they pretty much always say it doesn’t matter! So when it’s appropriate to talk about it, I talk about it. And when it isn’t, I simply give my attention to the task at hand, which takes the wind out of the sails!
Have you ever compared your dick size with another guy?
The grass is always greener. I compare my dick size to other guys all the time, especially when it’s one-on-one. When I’m lucky, the other guy is smaller.
How do you approach the conversation?
I imagine that most of the time when I have a chance to make comparisons, it’s only me doing it! When that’s the case, there’s no discussion. When that conversation happens, it almost always initiated with some humour — once we’re both laughing about it — because it’s a silly conversation — it’s easier to offer complimentary remarks.
Do you find many guys are interested in knowing the size of other guys?
At the end of the day, every dick is unique, and perfect and sexy in its own way. That said, I think every guy, including me, is interested in knowing the other guy’s size! Part curiosity, part competition.
I’ve never compared mine to someone else in a one-to-one setting.
Anything else you want to add before we wrap up?
In the world of Instagram and private blogging groups, there are more and more opportunities for all of us to see dick. And in addition to curiosity or fetish, flirting or creativity, it allows us to normalise the penis. We live in a world afraid of sex — women can’t show a nipple, men can’t show their dick. But it’s definitely a better world when we all can be, and show, what we are.
