People With Small Penises And The Folks Who Are Into Them Now Have Their Own Dating Site

A new dating website called Dinky One is addressing the needs of a population whose voice has not been prioritized: those with small penises. Or at least below average, which as they write on their site, is quite a lot of people:

The global average erect penis length about 5.5 inches (14 cm). If your penis is less than this you are eligible to join us. Remember that 50% of the male population will have a penis less than average size. That’s 50% of the men in your university, the office, a night club, the train. You are certainly not alone and 100% of the men on this site are less than average. Also remember, men often like to exaggerate. If you hear someone saying they are 7 inches it generally means 6 or 6.5 at best.

The point of this dating service is to connect people to partners who want what they’re packing, and honestly, that’s also probably a lot of people. Recent studies suggest many cis women prefer someone with a smaller penis for long term relationships. 

Dinky One

Dinky One only launched on March 9th, and Mashable reports that their founder, David Minns, claims there have been 27,000 sign-ups already.

“Guys have not shied away from signing up to Dinky One,” he said, in a press release. He added that the launch of the site “has opened the global debate of does size really matter and hopefully goes some way to building male body confidence.” 

The site is open to people of all sexualities and genders: gay, straight, bi, cis, trans. But not all the copy on Dinky One’s opening page is necessarily inclusive in language. It does cover something that isn’t often openly talked about on regular dating sites—small penis fetishes:

Just as there are men that are smaller than average, there are women who are also smaller than average. They can often find sexual intercourse painful. There are also women who have a fetish interest in small guys, often they play a dominant role.

There are also guys interested in being humiliated for the size of their penis, as long as we’re putting everything on the table! What’s important is that everyone has a way to find one another.

The reality is that none of us escape critical thoughts about our bodies, and penis size should stop being yet another thing for people to feel bad about. There’s a lid for every pot and pleasure is multi-faceted. But I do kind of wish Minns had chosen a more euphemistic name than Dinky One.
