Advice from three of EMandLO.com’s guy friends. This week they answer the following: Why do men have such an intense relationship with their penis? To ask the guys your own question, click here.

Married Straight Guy (Irad Eyal of Sexdegrees.net): I don’t even understand this question. It’s like a cruel koan that tries to rend the universe asunder. What is a mirror gazing upon itself? Where does the guy end and the penis begin? (Which, by the way, is an important question when you’re measuring.)

Single Straight Guy (Colin Adamo of Hooking Up & Staying Hooked): It is definitely not by choice. We are at times the ventriloquists’ dummies to our own phalluses. Of course we’d prefer not to gawk at you in the gym — we have working out to do as well. We’d love not to turn our heads when an attractive woman walks by — our necks are tired. And I’m sure all of us would rather go back to side-to-side slow dances rather than grinding our crotches into you at a nightclub — we’re not great dancers anyway. But we’re not always in charge. The penis is (be it because of biological, social-cultural, or purely fanciful reasons), and we’ve got to do what it says.

terence_100Committed Gay Guy (Terence): Um, it’s right there staring at me all the time. It’s highly interactive. It talks to me even at times I don’t want it to. It even gets me into trouble. A lot. It’s not my fault it’s an intense relationship.

  1. Here’s the deal. One day, you (the woman) may be gone. But my penis will always be here.
