Yesterday I read Hung a book on the popular culture and psychology - the lore - surrounding black men and penis size. I’ve sometimes wondered about how black gay men feel about being objectified for the mythology that erected about them.
I’ve seen frustration expressed in a couple of personal ads. Some surely accept it as a competitive advantage in the marketplace of hooking up.
I’m one of the few men I know of who has had a slight fetish for the small phallus. I say had because it isn’t something I think about nowadays. I didn’t see it as a mark of inferiority, certainly nothing making a male less of a ‘man.’ They just seemed pretty.
Recently on eBay I saw a headline Small Penis. The magazine below is what was being sold.
I doubt that was what the publisher was trying to sell.
But the eBay vendor was seeking to exploit the image of Asian men as less biologically blessed in this specialized way than other men. While I can enjoy looking at an attractive Asian guy I’ve never been a rice queen. Do some men chase after Japanese and Chinese guys because they feel it somehow emphasizes their own masculinity? I’ve read that Asian women are sought for their supposed submissiveness.
I try to never deplore anyone’s fetishes but stereotypes are wicked things.
