Do You Have a Long Middle Leg?
This photograph depicts a men's restroom at a Sofitel (a chain of 5-star hotels operated by Accor Hotels) in Queenstown, New Zealand, which has attracted a fair bit of interest and commotion:
Five star hotels are normally famous for their opulence and their design but the new $45 million Sofitel in Queenstown is gaining notoriety for its little boys room.
It has brought the hotel a couple of complaints from church goers and a couple of hundred people wanting to take a look.
It's the most popular room in the five star hotel.
In recent years businesses such as restaurants and hotels have tried to "liven up" their public restrooms with catchy or unusual decor, many of which play on our expectations of privacy while engaging in bathroom-related functions. A favorite set-up is to install mirrored glass panels around the urinals in men's rooms that allow restroom patrons to view the crowds milling around the adjacent restaurant or hotel lobby and create the impression that those crowds can see into the restroom as well. (In fact, the panels are mirrored on the outside, so all the restaurant or hotel customers see are their own.
The clever artwork around the urinals in the men's restroom pictured above plays not only on our fears of being observed (particularly by members of the opposite sex) in the bathroom, but also on specifically male fears of having the size of their "equipment" viewed and judged by women — especially women who, as in this case, are evidently well-prepared to measure, photograph, and poke fun at "equipment" they deem to be inadequately sized.
It's funny how we males are sometimes at the losing end of a never-ending gender war. I mean sure, there are many companies where males still predominantly take up all the positions of power, but females are increasingly competitive and more and more are climbing up the corporate ladder, carving out a successful career for themselves.
Anyhow, I find the whole bullshitty length of penis= level of masculinity absolutely bollocks. And guess what, everyone knows its bollocks too. But somehow, for some reason or another, that kinda dumb stereotype is so ingrained in our mindsets, entrenched into our culture, we can't seem to discard that mentality.
Really, I think the concept that a male's worth and masculinity being based on the length of what's behind his pants absolutely crippling -- not because I've got a small one (in which case even if its true I'll never admit it)-- because it is something you can never change. And i know you guys are thinking about those penis enlargement treatments, but seriously my theory is that what grows in lengths shrinks in width, so I don't want to have a very long chopstick like penis because it's absolutely useless in sex.
And I also think that whole concept was first perpetrated by feminists who want to get back at males, for reasons too many to be named.
