Condomania.com, America’s (self-proclaimed) first condom store, released its 2013 list of the 50 states ranked by penis size this week, according to Time. The list is reportedly based on data collected from condom sales on the site, with the states with the most larger-sized condom sales up top and the states with the most below-average sized condom sales toward the bottom. North Dakota landed at number one on the list. Mississippi, unfortunately, was 50th. The list, of course, is great for Condomania’s business, which includes the sale of custom-made condoms to match one’s individual size.
"We are happy that we can provide condoms for every size penis," stated Nicole Donnelly from Condomania, according to PRWeb. "We have condoms of all sizes to every state in the country. We are happy that men are getting the right size to maximize their pleasure."
Condomania seems to take the stance that — no matter the size of your penis — pleasure for both you and your partner is achievable. But comedian and actor Patrick Moote says that his small penis was the reason that his girlfriend declined his very public marriage proposal. And now, according to the Huffington Post, Moote has completed an entire documentary entitled Unhung Hero in which he asked one big question: “Does size matter?” In his case it did. But overall, around the world, do people really care?
Well, according to a study released earlier this year, no matter what women say, men do care. What has now been named "penis anxiety," occurs in a majority of men — even the well-endowed. Researchers concluded that the anticipated consequences of a perceived small penis — even in average and above-average sized men — led to measurable feelings of inadequacy and self-consciousness. So what Moote experienced after his public proposal could have led to a lifetime of insecurity. Instead, he chose to explore the issue rather than shy away from it. In an interview with the New York Post, Moote said:
"When we started the film, the point I wanted to prove was not only does size not matter, but also that I don’t have a particularly small penis. I think that we really saw an opportunity to answer a question that I think was bothering a lot of guys and I think it was really bothering me. I’ve always gone after things I’m insecure about head on. The first people I go to are my friends. And I think it was a good distraction from what had happened to me. Also, the proposal video got so many hits, it was hard not to look at it as some sort of an asset. Maybe I can turn this thing that was so brutal into something that could be positive.”Follow Us
After filming the documentary, which is now airing on Showtime, Moote came to this conclusion about his own penis size as well as what penis size means overall: "I don’t feel like I have a really small penis, I just know it’s not a particularly impressive or special penis. But it’s my penis, I love it and it’s great. We hang out all the time. But I’m still insecure about it."
