The site Singlesex.dk, recently held a "most beautiful penis" contest. The site is owned by Morten Fabricius, 45, who told AFP:
“The smallest is the extreme. It’s a competition which is weird and funny and almost too much.
“It’s a competition which is at the core of manhood, the most important thing for a man. There are so many unhappy men out there, who think you have to have a giant penis, but it’s not normal to have a huge one.”
Extremely small penises have a medical name: a micropenis. A micropenis is smaller than about 3 inches for an adult when erect, as compared to an average-sized erection of 5 inches.
Frabricus said he hoped the quirky aspect of the competition would enable people to poke a little fun (pun intended) at a sensitive subject. The rules are simple: men send in a photo of their erection, with a measuring tape next to it, to the website.
The man with the smallest organ will win one prize, but women site members will also crown a winner based on voting. Those two each win an iPhone, while the second and third prizes are a third-generation (or new) iPad.
The contest runs until Jan. 31, 2013.
Frabicus said that the site will confirm that any submitted images are not taken from the Internet.
“So far we have received six to seven images which are posted, but we have more trickling in, which we are vetting to make sure they are not stolen from the web.
“Everything has to be bigger, and bigger, and bigger. It’s incredible how the media has frightened people from showing themselves as they are."
Interestingly enough, since the grand prize is an iPhone, Apple recently succumbed to the bigger-is-better idea, increasing the size of its iPhone 5's screen to four-inches.
