48-year-old Ant Smith (pictured) tells i100.co.uk that he spent his entire adult life struggling to come to terms with the size of his penis, which he says is one inch flaccid and about four inches erect.
Two years ago, he made a conscious decision to stop feeling sorry for himself about what he didn’t have and instead embrace what little he did. He wrote a poem called “Shorty” about his “crooked little finger,” which received some media attention. Now, he’s gearing up to host London’s first-ever “Big Small Penis Party” on March 7.
“I think it’s really important to maintain a balanced sense of fun,” he says. “That’s why I’m creating a celebratory party. I’ve got various thoughts on what is a good and what is a bad small penis joke. And I do think humor is a great healer. So I’ll just say ‘keep laughing.'”
Tickets to the event will cost men 50£ (approx. $75 U.S.) per purported penile inch, making it a cheap evening of fun for some.
“I look back and I think how much time and how much energy have I wasted in my life being worried about something that really doesn’t amount to a hill of beans,” Smith says.”My life is so much easier now that this issue is in the open. For me one brave step, one very small brave step, can change completely the shape of your life.”
