When a large penis has comedic value instead of sexual value, see GagPenis. Contrast with TeenyWeenie, which is a penis which is smaller than the average, and often leads to mockery of the guy who has it because of this trope. The female equivalents for this trope are BuxomIsBetter or GagBoobs. Often related to IKEAErotica, and when taken to extremes can become a case of AnatomicallyImpossibleSex, or alternately of WritersCannotDoMath.

Unsurprisingly, most writers don't really think through the RealLife implications of this. First, regardless of personal preferences, if a guy's penis is too big for his partner's orifices then intercourse will be awkward, physically painful, [[CantHaveSexEver or even outright impossible.]] Second, it assumes that intercourse is all there is to sex, thereby demonstrating certain failures of knowledge and imagination. Most women are unable to climax solely from vaginal stimulation and excessive length may prevent them from receiving the additional vulval and clitoral stimulation they need. Third, [[BlessedWithSuck truly extraordinary size can make it difficult or even impossible to sustain erection due to blood-flow complications]] making [[TheLoinsSleepTonight any degree of performance]] [[ExaggeratedTrope impossible]]. Fourth, while size can matter to women, width benefits them more than length and both take a back seat to technique because female genitals have evolved to accept a reasonable range of "inputs." One size does indeed fit all, so long as the "all" knows what they are doing.

* In ''Film/BlazingSaddles'', the hero actually manages to convert a [[TheVamp seductress hired by the villain]] to the good guys purely by [[SexFaceTurn impressing her with his penis]]. An extended cut of the scene reveals she was sucking on his ''elbow''.
* In ''Film/YoungFrankenstein'', true to the same Creator/MelBrooks genre, a prudish primadonna played by the same actress (Madeline Kahn) finds her true love when The Monster rapes her... after it's revealed that he also has a monster ''penis.'' (Madeline certainly seems to play the size-queen a bit.)

** In ''Film/HistoryOfTheWorldPartI'', Empress Nympho's selection of men for an orgy definitely works on this criterion.

* In the ''Literature/AnitaBlake'' series, the titular character has a small harem of increasingly well-endowed lovers, culminating finally in Micah, whose penis is so large it actually becomes a plot point. Also show's up in the author's other series, ''Literature/MerryGentry''. In both, SerialEscalation results in characters who are proportioned like fire extinguishers.

* The male protagonists of the ''Literature/ImmortalsAfterDark'' series by Kresley Cole personify this trait. All fifteen (so far) of them, without exception. Experienced female protagonists, even those over two thousand years old, will note their partner as being the largest they've ever had. Except for sometimes requiring some judicious preparation for the women to receive them, there's never any real problem making them fit.

This assumption is a staple of modern fiction when it comes to SexTropes. It's the reason why CompensatingForSomething is, by its very nature, an insult -- everybody knows that a ''real'' man has a big penis. A heroic character, when his penis is mentioned (which isn't all that often, except by [[DoubleEntendre innuendo]]), will usually have a big one.

Added DiffLines:

* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCekRQrDLJ8 this scene]] from the "Go Fish" episode of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', Buffy, Willow and Cordelia are shown staring at Xander's bulge when [[FemaleGaze they see him coming out to the pool]] in a [[WalkingSwimsuitScene speedo]] and [[ReactionShot they're clearly impressed]] by his bulge.

Added DiffLines:

* Averted in Jacqueline Carey's [[Literature/KushielsLegacy Kushiel's Legacy]] series. Despite all the sex scenes, the actual size of penises is never commented upon, nor is it implied that good lovers have bigger ones or less-masculine men are less endowed. Possibly, what with all the sex they have and the openness with which they go about it, D'Angelines know this trope is a myth.

* Towards the end of the 1999 remake of ''Gloria'', the eponymous gangster's moll forces a group of Mob guys to strip at gunpoint so she can make her escape. One of the more unassuming members of the crew turns out to have hidden (and unseen by the audience) talents, eliciting an appreciative "Mikey! Who knew?" from Creator/SharonStone's character.
