RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Science proves women like men with bigger penises

Quote:The human male possesses the Italian designer faucet of penises. They’re pretty big, the biggest of any primate’s relative to body size. And they’re showy, too, right out there, front and center on our upright bodies (i.e., they don’t retract), as if they were meant to be seen as part of the décor. Why?
“Penis size does affect attractiveness,” lead author Brian Mautz, a University of Ottawa post-doctoral researcher said in an NBCNews.com interview.
Past research has seemed to indicate that women, as a group, are drawn to larger male members. But those results have been disputed as sexist, or scientifically flawed, or both.
So Mautz and his team, working at the Australian National University, designed an experiment in hopes of settling the controversy. They created 49 unique, computer-generated, nude, life-sized male figures. Each figure varied in three traits: height, shoulder-hip ratio and flaccid penis size.
The researchers then displayed all the figures to 105 Australian women with an average age of 26. The women, who were not told which traits varied, were asked to rate the attractiveness of the figures as sexual partners on a scale of 1-7. The women were alone in the room and their responses were anonymous.
As past studies have shown, women prefer tall men with broad shoulders and narrow hips, like an Olympic swimmer. But when Mautz controlled for those variables, it turned out that penis size (overall length and girth) was about as important as stature.
“As you increase penis size, the amount of attractiveness scores gets bigger” in a linear fashion, he explained, until 7.6 centimeters, or 3 inches. After three inches, attractiveness still increased, but in smaller increments.
Not only were the ratings higher, but the women also spent more time gazing at the generously endowed figures, a sign they preferred looking at them as opposed to figures with smaller penises.
Women with a greater body mass index held stronger preferences for big penises. And size was most critical in tall men, perhaps, Mautz speculated, because “a taller guy must have a disproportionately larger penis to sort of make it clear” he’s endowed.
Some have argued that penis size fretting is driven by a body-obsessed culture and porn saturation. But according to Stuart Brody, a researcher at the University of the West of Scotland who’s conducted studies on orgasm, penis size and relationship satisfaction, “some erotica might reflect fads, but there is a potent evolutionary motivation” at work, too.
That’s what interested Mautz, who studies mate-choice, or why we choose one individual over another. Women make mate choices based partly on evolutionarily constructed fitness preferences and may be using penis size as a clue, Brody said. “The results of the PNAS study (and our own penis size studies) are consistent with a mate-choice perspective.”
But a clue to what? Women may be looking for orgasms, which, in turn, Mautz suggested, may serve a pair-bonding function. In the recent book, The Chemistry Between Us: Love, Sex and the Science of Attraction (which I co-authored), Emory University neuroscientist Larry Young argues that the big human penis evolved into a tool meant to stimulate both the vagina and cervix as a way trigger the release of oxytocin in a woman’s brain, activating bonding circuits. Such bonds provide a survival advantage to offspring.
Or as Mautz puts it in his paper, “Our results support the hypothesis that female mate choice could have driven the evolution of larger penises in humans.”
Of course, this is the 21st century. Most men wear pants – or at the very least, kilts. Mautz was quick to soothe men by saying that his study did not include other proven mate choice factors like money, intelligence, hair or whether a guy drives a 1997 Chevy Astro.

Brian Alexander (http://www.BrianRAlexander.com) is co-author, with Larry Young, of "The Chemistry Between Us: Love, Sex and the Science of Attraction," (http://www.TheChemistryBetweenUs.com).

Interesting, but isn't only the first few inches actually enough, leaving it up to skilled use for maximum pleasure?

Not to mention it can get hard to have intercourse when most of the blood is busy trying to keep you stiff. You become a useless yet "well-endowed" pole.

What's wrong with that? Isn't that how we're evolutionarily encoded? I think that women are fully justified in seeking the most well endowed man, because though it isn't the entire equation, having a larger penis does say "Hey, I can give you a lot more pleasure than that whimp over there with the little dick. Because I'm better, you should fuck me and have my child instead."

You won't have that problem unless you have a dick over a foot long, and most of us aren't that well-endowed. Razz 6-8 inches seems to be the ideal for generating orgasms, but skill obviously has a lot to do with it too. So you're right, but it isn't just the first few inches but a couple more added on to that. I think somebody with 100% skill and a 7 inch dick is going to be a lot better off than somebody with 100% skill and a 4 inch dick, assuming the same girth.

I say Australian women like the bigger poles. Probably a "Down Under" thing...

Well, looking and feeling are only two of the five senses. What about the other 3? Don't they matter too?

I suppose for people who are only interested in short-term screwing around, those 2 senses are probably enough. But I don't think it's a smart thing to base important decisions on, like for people who actually care about long-term relationships, and having kids. Picking your child's dad entirely on his looks and size of his dick is stupid, if it means overlooking things like if he'd even make a decent father. Or if you'd actually want to be around him longer than 5 minutes. Or if the two of you can actually talk about things like civilized people.

But yeah, sure, for screwing around, I don't care what people do, as long as they don't spawn more idiots.

I mean... based on the descriptions of many of the parents of people here... do we really want to encourage people to have more kids without actually giving it some serious thought? I sure don't.

Oh, speaking of evolution, we're also encoded to fear a lot of things, like tigers. But since there really aren't that many tigers around in the average daily person's life these days, people tend to fear things like public speaking instead, which isn't a particularly useful fear to have.

I suppose back in the day, being attracted to bigger males (going by the broad shoulders thing) made sense, since they'd be more likely able to protect a woman from those pesky tigers, which, sadly, aren't around that much anymore. Evolutionarily (is that a word?) ... it really isn't that useful anymore. But I guess we humans haven't adapted to the new requirements of modern life yet, and are still reacting with the old impulses, some of which can actually be more of a hindrance.

So, yeah, sure. Big dicks are nice to look at. There, I said it. Razz
But I'm not going to base any decisions around stuff like that. I have other priorities.

So your saying that big dicks are useless in a more advanced human society where intelligence and knowledge holds a higher standard due to the progression of technology and the complexity of it, which requires the use of the big head on top, not the little head down there.

Kind of. Not entirely useless I suppose.. . But not that important either.

I think it also becomes a bit more meaningless when you've got the dumber and immature humans running around talking about how much bigger their dick is than yours. It's worse when you're stuck with them in the same classes(or surrounding if not school). Your big dick will not help you land a successful career(or if it does, it won't help you keep it).

Come to think of it, a man's dick is his greatest weakness and enemy if he can't muster the discipline to control it.

There was also a study(I forgot where I saw it) on how sexual things caused men to have a slight drop in concentration. They did it in varying levels of clothed women yet with teasing pose to fully nude and as you can guess, the concentration levels went down further. Pretty amusing in my opinion.

Perhaps. However, if they conducted a test on men and found they were more heavily attracted to larger breasts, we couldn't expect them to be exempt from similar criticism.

I don't think big dicks have anything to do with a proper mate. They may "feel" better for certain women, but simply possessing a large penis does not make one a suitable mate for progressing the human race.
