While some men dream of being well-endowed, this man is not so proud of his giant penis.
In a report by the New York Post, a man claimed that he was rejected from a job because the examiners thought that he was having an erection during their interview because of his remarkably large private part that measures nine-and-a-half inches.
Joe, who chose to withhold his surname, recounted his awkward and uncomfortable experience in a documentary that spotlights people with extra-large private parts called My Massive C**k, which airs on British television network Channel 4.
The series featured men who weren't too bothered with their large members while there were also others who were looking into reduction surgeries so they wouldn't become a laughing stock from society.
According to Moorgate Andrology, the UK's leading clinic for penis enlargement, reduction surgeries are meant to reduce the length of the penis to a more acceptable size as a member that is too long may cause "anxiety and distress in personal relationships for some men."
The news outlet reported that Joe is among those who regard his large member, which he describes as "thicker than his forearm," as a burden as it had hindered him from having a normal life and even stopped him from landing a job.
"The response I got was 'You’re not going to get the job, we thought you were a good candidate, but we thought there was inappropriate behavior happening'," Joe said of his experience with the job interview.
This was in spite of him wearing special underwear that is meant to prevent his penis from "falling out" through its "pouch" that could "fit everything in."
"They thought I had an erection throughout this whole interview, and they were very much like, 'Your attire wasn’t right'. They clearly meant, 'We can see your d**k'," Joe said.
My Massive C**k can be viewed on Channel 4's website. Its synopsis reads: "An extra-large penis is an object of desire for many. But for some men, extra-large seriously complicates their lives and relationships, and penis reduction surgery seems the only answer."
