The Big Penis Book

The fascinating phallus: Undressed to impress  After the bust out success of The Big Book of Breasts TASCHEN presents the perfect companion, The Big Penis Book.

When it comes to pleasure, size doesn’t matter; as we all know it’s quality, not quantity, that counts. But let’s admit it: a big penis is undeniably compelling. Big shoulders, big lapels, and big hair may come and go, but the big penis never goes out of fashion. With those possessing more than 8 inches (20 cm) making up less than 2% of the world’s population, this rare accessory will always fascinate.

In The Big Penis Book we explore the centuries-old fascination with the large phallus, a fascination common to men and women alike. This hefty book is profusely illustrated with over 400 historic photos of spectacular male endowments, including rare photos of the legendary John Holmes. The majority of the photographs are from the 1970s, when the sexual revolution first freed photographers to depict the male entirely nude. Photographers include Bob Mizer of Athletic Model Guild, David Hurles of Old Reliable, Colt, Falcon, Sierra Domino, Third World, and Champion Studios, with each of these iconic photographers interviewed or profiled, along with information about each of their models. And if this isn’t enough, the book closes with a special surprise comparable to the Guinness Book of Records’ Norma Stitz featured in The Big Book of Breasts!  Can you guess what body part Dian is dissecting next?  Text in English, French, and German

Well, this certainly pokes a few holes in Mr. Friedman’s (A Mind of Its Own)thesis. The Big Penis Book digs to the root of the matter where Friedman’s little tome barely pricks the surface. ...more

Priapo, io son l’Arsiccio Arcintronato,
E nell’intronataggine il maggiore,
Ch’oggi per farti un profumato onore
Un mio libbretto in dono t’ho recato.
Quì sono tutti i cazzi d’ogni stato,
Cazzi da poco, e cazzi di valore,
Cazzi da donne vedove, e da Suore,
Cazzi da Granmaestro, e da Prelato.
Cazz... ...more
