Researcher Finds Penis Size Matters In Team Sports
UK sports sociologist, Dr. Chris Morriss-Roberts is delving deeply into the role penis size plays in the dynamic between teammates in sports.
It may come as no surprise that Morriss-Roberts' research has determined that the bigger the athlete's penis, the higher his standing in the "cockocracy."
The research suggested that men look at each other’s cocks, as a gauge to see how big or small they are, comparing themselves to the rest of the team or men in the locker room. The activity of checking out each other occurred irrelevant of sexuality and the type of sport; all participants noted that they looked at each other’s cocks in the locker room.
This knowing of who has a large cock and who didn’t within a homosocial environment helped individual sporting males climb up a social hierarchy of importance. Those with the larger penises were revered and idolized by their teammates as a symbol of masculinity. These "large-cocked" individuals became a focus of camaraderie and team building within their sports environments. The cock became a focus on which to banter, create nicknames, and enjoy the fundamental basics of being a man. Two nicknames that were mentioned included "schlonger" and the "biggest dick in Scottish basketball."
Morriss-Roberts' also speculates based on his research that penis-size may actually play a role in an athlete remaining on a team, even if they lack athletic skill.
It was interesting to note that one rugby player discussed another athlete who had a really huge cock; he felt that the only reason he was still in the team was because he had a "massive cock" and in actual fact "he wasn’t very good at rugby." It was interesting to gain insight into the fact that actually a large penis in the rugby environment was more important than sporting ability, simply because it cemented the team in unity.
In the thesis I argue that a large penis is now an essential component of hegemonic masculinity, and should be considered a new tenet of masculine capital; taking into account the significance it has on social hierarchy in the sporting environment. I have called this cock-supremacy.
What do you think of the UK researcher's findings, Instincters?
Morriss-Roberts maintains that his sample of 8 athletes--all from professional and semi-professional sports clubs in London--provides enough information to draw conclusions based on the methodology of his interview process. They're also representative of gay and straight athletes.
The athletes included in this study are three soccer players (all straight); one soccer and rugby player (straight); one fitness trainer (gay); one bodybuilder (gay); one squash and tennis player (gay) and one former pro gymnast (gay).
Do you think enough individuals were polled to draw conclusions?
Based on the research it appears that penis comparison and assessment occurs across sexual orientation lines. Does it surprise you to find out how much size seemingly matters within the context of sports?
