A faculty member from Missouri State University who tried soliciting dick pics for a study about male self-esteem has decided to cancel her project.
Assistant sociology professor Alicia Walker wanted to research how penis size impacts a man’s sexual activity, condom usage, mental health, socializing, and overall health.
For the study, she tried finding 3,600 men willing to submit pictures and measurement data about their penises. She managed to collect “a few hundred” before the university asked her to 86 the study, citing “public reaction” for the reason.

“I continue to believe the relationship between penis size and self-esteem is an important site of scientific inquiry,” Walker said in a statement this week, “but the public reaction to the project threatens the reliability of the survey responses.”
As a result, she added, “the reliability of the study as a whole has been compromised.”
Meanwhile, the university promises that “all submissions were stored in a secure research database” and that “none of the photographic submissions or survey responses have been or will be viewed. They have already been destroyed.”
“The survey itself has been closed to further activity,” MSU announced Thursday. “No further interviewing will take place.”
Penis size related to men is a much more complicated issue as we are all different. From a Vienna sausage to a foot long hot dog, many different approaches have been used to obtain satisfaction, including derrieres etc. There is much more to be learned than this article suggests.
Hmm..not sure why the uproar since Penis size is a preoccupation of all men. Ever hear of Penis envy.
That’s not classic penis envy, which is a Freudian term to describe a woman’s desire to possess a male sex organ.
I remember a queen (friend) putting a guy down years ago by accusing him of every conceivable horror from kicking his dog to stealing his mother’s welfare checks, from never bathing to deliberately spreading spreading VD, but the coup de grace was “and what’s more he’s got no meat!” (Not a verbatim list, but you all know what I mean.) Nothing is considered a more damning put-down and never has been in my 80 years on earth.
Just 10 years behind you, and I’ve got to say how refreshing to hear the word “queen” again. Young gays hate the term. I guess after countless hours in the gym and costly steroids, they don’t want to be associated with a feminine noun – although for most of those Muscle Queens, bulging biceps or not, it’s all over once they open their mouths.
But yes, in the day, there were Opera Queens, Rice Queens, Trade Queens, Bitchy Queens, Vicious Queens, Bitter Queens, Flaming Queens, Size Queens, T-Room Queens, Sandwich Queens, and of course, Closet, Drag and Drama Queens.
But back to the subject in the article, do you remember PTMs?
If I’m reading this right, it’s the solicitation of the pics that was the issue, not the subject of the study…is that correct?
from what I remember, there was a requirement for a pic to be taken to show the accuracy of the measurements.
Actually, it seems that after the national coverage with humorous and catchy media headlines, Alicia Walker cancelled voluntarily her study because too many trolls, as well as serious people likely influenced by the public mockery, answered —or were likely to (not) answer—the online questionnaire:
“[…]I continue to believe the relationship between penis size and self-esteem is an important site of scientific inquiry, but the public reaction to the project threatens the reliability of the survey responses,” Walker said in a statement to the paper. “The reliability of the study as a whole has been compromised.” ( Missouri State Professor Doesn’t Want to See Your Dick Anymore )
Institutions are too sheepish on such subjects. This is crazy. i am not hung like a hoarse, i am a bit larger than average and have been with men of varying size penises. I have had great sex men with below average size penises and not so great to great sex with average to large size penises. There is far more to man than his penis size. I also have never given names or descriptions of particular men’s penises that I have been with. Doing such is tacky and says more about the person putting names and cock sizes out to others for fun and humiliation. We need to get over this obsession.We as men have a pleasure organ that gives pleasure and we should fully embrace them no matter their size.
Human sexual studies are legit. Kinsey was right about the spectrum. Masters and Johnson did their thing. Is it just me or are people becoming PC prudes?
It’s not you. After a wave of sexual revolution and global emancipation, the world is now on the verge of a wave of conservatism and reactionarism. This young generation will erode probably everything we fought for, but the next one, that is yet to come, will fight against the conservatism of its elders.
If you observe the history of the world, things always have been like this, two steps ahead, one step back.
Let’s continue this research here. I have a ruler that measures dick inches.
I would love to hear about the study. I have always considered my penis size a major part of my self-esteem. When I was a lot younger I had a very nice thick 8 1/2″ cut cock and was bothered because some guys didn’t want it because it was too big for them. Now since having 42 years of diabetes, I can no longer get hard and THAT really plays on my self-esteem. How many of you can really say that you would be okay if you were small in size? They say that it isn’t the size that matters but what you do with it, but come on….we all know that is a crock of s—!
I have successfully completed a similar research study with no problems.
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
99.9% of guys want a BIGGER dick
Can I now get paid for researching and publishing the study??
