Answer the question quickly before you have too much time to think: which kind of dicks are better – growers or showers? ‘Growers’ meaning dicks which look fairly small when flaccid, but ‘grow’ a lot while they’re getting erect, ‘showers’ meaning dicks which get hard during erection, but ‘show’ most of their size even when flaccid. Which is better – grower or shower? Got your answer? OK, let’s get into this.
The case for growers is a fairly simple one if you enjoy a combination of dick-related surprises and cock-based anticipation. A dick which grows significantly as it gets harder allows for a variety of sensation. The feeling of it swelling significantly in your mouth when you suck someone hard, for instance. Or the way you can cup it gently in your hand, and whisper a sexy story, then feel the pulsing growth until it springs out and you can no longer hold the entire thing.
There’s also the ‘surprise’ factor – getting to watch the entire transition from soft to hard, never quite knowing when a dick has reached peak erection. It’s like waiting for the big reveal before the end credits in your favourite TV show. Like walking in to a surprise birthday party and not knowing just yet which of your old friends have turned up, then being able to squeal with glee when each one steps forward for a hug.
There’s the satisfaction, when something grows to twice – or three times – it’s flaccid volume. Being able to look proudly upon it and say ‘I did that.’ I caused this thing to happen. Like standing proudly over a Lego castle you’ve just built and being able to say ‘my work here is done, and it’s exceptional.’
That’s not to say that a ‘shower’ lacks merit. On the contrary, there’s delight and satisfaction in a dick that presents itself ‘as-is.’ The meaty smack of a long yet flaccid cock against the palm of your hand. Or against your face.
Watching someone hold it while they piss – substantial and satisfying – with the stream mimicking the hoped-for gallons of jizz that come later. Seeing someone perform that neat manoeuvre of tucking it back into their jeans afterwards, that quick flick of the wrist as they feed it back into the fly of their boxers, tucking it away for later.
Sometimes, guys ‘show’ so much in tight trousers that you can’t help but catch a glimpse of it. This guy standing in front of me on the tube dresses to the left, and I notice even if I’m trying not to.
Do people prefer showers or growers?
Both have their merits, but which is best? When it comes to sex we’re often desperately keen to categorise things and rank them: which of these things is more pleasurable than the other? Which sex toy gives you the best orgasms? What oral sex trick will blow someone’s mind in bed? Usually I sit on the fence – not out of apathy, but out of a sincere passion for both of the two possibilities. Yet when @_pea_green_boat recently ran a Twitter poll, my instinct was to go for one option in particular: grower.
For all the reasons I mentioned above – the joy of watching the transition, the sense of anticipation as something grew and stretched, and the satisfaction of knowing that ‘I did that.’ Yet when I mentioned the poll to my other half, he guessed that most people would prefer a ‘shower.’ Why?
“It’s just more impressive, isn’t it?” he explained. To him, dick size – and correlating anxiety or penis pride – was often about comparison to other guys. In the locker room, in the showers at the gym, or when you’re standing next to each other at the urinals. If dick size is a competition judged in comparison to other dicks, the fact that you most often see other dicks in flaccid environments means that ‘showers’ will usually win the day. But from my perspective, as someone who only really sees dick just before I get to sit on it, growers have a charm and merit that he hadn’t really considered.
So which is better, grower or shower? I think the answer can be found in the fact that I ticked ‘grower’ on the poll. Not because ‘grower’ is better, but because I have immediate access to a grower every morning when I wake up. Because I am currently more familiar with his dick than anyone else’s. I’ve fucked and loved ‘showers’ in the past, and I’ve fucked and loved dicks that come in a range of different sizes, shapes, colours and flavours.
What I’m saying is that grower or shower is probably not a lifelong preference. It’ll change depending on which dick I have easiest access to at the time.
Basically dicks are like ice-creams: the one I like best is usually the one I’m just about to put in my mouth.
