Finally love has come along, everything is looking wonderful and the decision is made, let’s move in together. There are few moments as big in a relationship as this will see your two worlds combine and you will be spending a lot more time together whilst sharing a lot of responsibilities. It can be particularly challenging if you are moving into your partner’s current place (or vice versa) as they will already feel settled and it can feel like you are invading their personal space. This is quite a unique challenge to overcome, but there are a few things that the two of you can do to make it easier so that you can start this exciting new chapter on the right foot.
Discuss Practicalities Beforehand
You may already spend a large amount of time at your partner’s home and help out with certain chores, but it is a lot different when you are both living under the same roof. Before making the move, make sure that you discuss all of the practicalities so that you know what you are doing once the move is complete. This will include things like paying rent and other bills, how often the housework needs doing, where your possessions will go, how you will handle the cooking and shopping etc. You may also want to take this time to talk through any habits, embarrassing problems or anything that inevitably will come out once you are living together 24/7.
FS magazine, surveyed Gay and Bi men and discovered that nearly 40% of gay men have anxiety issues when it comes to their own penis but are also quick to judge others.
Some other interesting findings came out of the survey:
89% had shared a dick pic, and 30% said they wouldn’t care if that pic was shared with other people.
16% had heard derogatory comments about their penis, 21% had suffered from erectile dysfunction, and 28% had problems with ejaculating too quickly.
When asked if penis size mattered, half – 49% – said no. Slightly more than a third, 37%, said yes.
And also, 74% said they are happy with their penis size.
Regarding the 22% who had rejected someone because of their penis size, CEO of GMFA Ian Howley said this was likely due to their own ‘insecurities’.
‘People already have anxieties about their own issues because of their penis size,’ he said
‘If you’re rejecting someone, you might be doing that because you’re afraid they’ll reject you first. That means you need to look at your own insecurities, and you’re going to be less confident about themselves and the sex they want.’
While it is ‘easier said than done’ to get over anxiety issues to do with your penis size, Howley encouraged those who felt they had a real issue to seek counselling to ensure size doesn’t make an impact on health and well-being.
‘We found people who are bigger than average to have a bigger anxiety,’ Howley said. ‘Not only do they have to deal with being rejected sometimes, but also people who just use them for their penis size than as a person.’
Howley concluded: ‘All gay men deserve to have the best sex possible. Our penises come in many shapes, sizes and skin tones – just as we do. And like us, our penises need looking after. Just don’t let your penis dictate your whole life.’
