Men worry more about what their mates think, rather than their partner, when it comes to stature and the size of their penis. It's a phenomenon called the "locker room syndrome", says Doctor of Clinical Psychology student Annabel Chan, who obtained penis measurements from more than men worldwide. The men also answered questions designed to probe the link between penis size, male body image and mental health, says Ms Chan who is a PhD student at Melbourne's Victoria University.

A scientist has somewhat controversially determined that penis size really does matter — but not to women and not in the bedroom. Dr Christopher Morriss-Roberts, a senior lecturer at the University of Brighton, has instead suggested that penis size matters to athletes in the locker room, who he argues idolise teammates with bigger penises. In research for his PHD, Dr Morriss-Roberts interviewed eight London athletes who played a variety of sports including football, tennis and rugby.
The dick deluge was part of a story line involving football captain Nate Jacob Elordihis struggles with identity, and his subsequent foray into super toxic masculinity. While Nate loves the thrill and the glory of football, he is none too pleased with all the cocks and balls of the locker room. To illustrate this point, a fully clothed Nate is shown surrounded by a locker room teeming with nude, rowdy men.
Even before Euphoria premiered, there was a lot of hype about just how many penises would be shown on screen in this wild new Gen-Z drama. While the premiere was relatively tame on the full-frontal front — save for one prosthetic penis worn by Eric Dane — the second episode went all in with the NSFW content. The episode explored the sordid history of Nate's Jacob Elordi father and how it complicates his own perspective and relationships, including his conflicted mindset while exposed to so many free-swinging body parts in the boys' locker room. The brief but gratuitous scene included dozens of down-under shots, and even though it would've included as many as 80 more if creator Sam Levinson's original cut had made it past the HBO brass, that was plenty enough for the internet to react with collective shock on Sunday night over just how many nether bits were visible in the locker room scene.
As the sixth graders noisily filed out of the library, I uncrumpled the index card and smoothed it over against my thigh. The boy who had dropped it into the anonymous question box in my sex education class told me that he felt very strongly about it and wanted me to read it right away — anonymity be damned. I passed the card over to my co-facilitator, a smile forming across my lips.
The wife of Cincinnati Bengals quarterback AJ McCarron took to Twitter to blast the NFL Network after it aired a locker room interview that showed nude players walking to and from the showers in the background. How is this ok? What about female reporters required to get an interview? No missing the point.
