Many guys can relate to comparing their penis sizes to porn stars, especially while being younger. However, very few people have similar penis sizes to porn stars, and the whole idea of larger penises being better, in a way, is utterly stupid. All of us ought to love the penises we have.
The Obsession with the Penis: How it's Affecting Men and What We Can Do About It
Obsession of penis size is highly abundant, and within the gay community, even more so. It takes up much of men's energy and time, yet we don't have control over it. Many of us seek validation and guidance from the internet to the anxiety about whether I am enough.
Our culture should forget this obsession. Thinking of penises as a body part where "bigger would be better" is relatively narrow. That's like saying only blond guys are hot. We all know that good-looking people can have whatever coloured hair, so why not apply the same to penises that are splendid and excellent in all colours, shapes and sizes. The size isn't everything the penis has to offer. Giggeli thinks it'd be great seeing all kinds of penises shown and celebrated in society. The action can start from something as small as bulges in underwear ads.
What message does the world give to men by being so focused on larger penises, and how does this affect people who can't get measured up to these beauty standards? For example, we've become more accepting of body positivity by accepting tattoos and women with curves on a larger scale. We still have a lot of work to do; however, when it comes to evolving penis positivity to the same level as body positivity has developed in the past decade.
How does the Giggeli penis positivity project contribute to the idea that every penis is beautiful?
For the Giggeli project, every penis is gorgeous, and we operate for the belief that promotes the idea that every penis, regardless of its shape, size, or appearance, is beautiful and deserving of love and respect.
Why is it essential to promote this message?
Many men experience feelings of shame and insecurity about their genitals, which can lead to negative self-esteem and affect their sexual and mental health. Promoting the idea that every penis is beautiful can help break down these harmful societal norms and encourage healthy body positivity.
What if I don't believe my penis is beautiful?
It's okay to have insecurities, but remember that beauty is subjective, and every penis is unique. Take time to appreciate and care for your body, and focus on what makes you feel confident and comfortable.
Does this message only apply to cisgender men?
No, Every Penis is Beautiful is a message for everyone with a penis, regardless of gender identity or expression.
Does this mean that everyone has to find every penis attractive?
No, everyone has their preferences and attractions. The message is not about forcing attraction or desire but promoting respect and acceptance for all bodies.
How can I support this message?
You can support this message by promoting body positivity and challenging harmful societal norms surrounding genital appearance. You can also spread awareness about the Giggeli project and participate in discussions about body acceptance and sex positivity.
Hidden treasure beneath cloth,
Break taboos, let truth unclothe,
Shedding light on what's unknown,
Freedom found in what's shown.
