Growers vs. Showers
I read these terms some place and realized that Barry is clearly a "grow"er. His penis is quite small when flacid. However, it increases significantly in size when he becomes aroused. Other men apparently are quite large all the time (hence a "show"er). It seems that when they become aroused, their penis becomes hard but does not increase a lot in size.
I don't understand why there is this difference. I do know that it used to cause Barry some embarrassment about the size of his penis. When we were first married, he didn't like me to see him when it was flacid. Since penis size was never a big deal for me, it didn't bother me at all. Barry was always able to please me sexually, which is what mattered.
Are my readers aware of this difference? Do the men fall into one category or the other? Are there any concerns about size by the "grow"ers?
Testicle Size and Scrotum Characteristics
This is another area that I have notices can vary at different times with respect to Barry. When he comes out of a hot shower, his testicles seem much larger than normal and hang very low in his scrotum. At other times, his testicles seem significantly smaller and are higher. And, still at other times they seem to almost disappear. Does anyone else notice these differences?
I will always remember the "shrinkage" episode of Seinfeld in which a friend of George's girlfriend walks into the bedroom where he is changing from his swimsuit. George is very concerned that she saw a very small penis (due to "shrinkage" while swimming) and will tell his girlfriend. Barry also experiences this. Sometimes, his penis can be extremely small when flacid. However, it always grows to his normal size when he is aroused.
Is shrinkage a concern for my male readers? How do your partner's feel?
Shooting distance and Volume of Fluid expelled
Does anyone else notice a difference in these two aspects of the male climax? I have noticed that as Barry gets older, these two characteristics have decreased. When we were younger, if I gave him a handjob, he would shoot at least six feet and it seemed like he always had a huge volume of seminal fluid. These days, the distance is a matter of inches and the volume is much less. I'm assuming this a a factor of age.
Do I dare mention the "unmentionable"? After Barry's heart attack, ED became very apparent ... and we understand from the cardiology literature that it is quite typical. His issues have greatly improved, which is not always the case. I have tried to deal with it by creating different ways to get him excited, and it seems to work. Do any of my readers have experience in this area? If so, what have you done.
Needless to say, the male genitalia are a curious thing. I'm glad that I have come to fully love and enjoy Barry's.
