O is for OMG, A Disorder I Shouldn’t Laugh At (But Do)

large, male, genitaliaThis post first ran last summer, but it made me laugh so hard, I just had  to put it up again as my “O” for the A-Z Blog Challenge.

I celebrated our guys on Monday with 13 Groovy Man Facts. Now it’s time for the men to have another moment of sparkly fun (IYKWIM).

I first discovered this disorder when I was browsing Amazon, of course. I have to limit my time there because it’s too darn funny. Especially the Man Stuff.

I was actually looking at the “Also Bought Items” section of my Crazy Book #1 when I spotted:

How To Live With a Huge Penis – Advice, Meditations and Wisdom for Men Who Have Too Much ~ by Dr. Richard Jacob and Reverend Owen Thomas.

It would have taken a stronger person than either Hubby or I to not click on that link. We just HAD to check it out…the book garnered four star reviews.

Then we read Amazon’s books description and found out the real meaning of OMG:

Book Description Publication Date: February 1, 2009

men, OMG, large genitalia, sexIs Bigger Really Better?

Here at last is the first self-help book for men with Oversized Male Genitalia (OMG), a genetic birth defect that grows the penis to absurd proportions.

Every year, thousands of men are diagnosed with OMG. Sadly, most are banished to the fringes of society, victims of their own freakish length and girth. How to Live with a Huge Penis brings them an inspiring message of tolerance and hope—along with helpful information on

  • Unzipping: Coming Out to Your Friends and Family
  • Sharing Your Pain: Sexual Intercourse with a Huge Penis
  • Big Blessings: Unexpected Advantages of a Huge Penis
  • and much, much more

Complete with prayers (prayers??), poetry, a daily affirmations journal (Shut the front door!!), and thoughtful quotations from leading self-help experts, How to Live with a Huge Penis will inspire men of all shapes and sizes.

(Yep, our snickers started early in the book description and never stopped.)

There was no way I wasn’t going to share this with my posse here at More Cowbell. This is the blog about MORE, after all. And it seems that we’ve all been misusing the acronym, OMG, in a sad pitiful way.

Here’s a video to describe the book (and yes, it is quite suitable for work, as long as you don’t mind busting a gut laughing – the barbells were the final straw for me):


Had you heard of this disorder before now? Are you torn between feeling sorry for the “OMG sufferers” and laughing your guts out (like me)? Are you scratching your head wondering what would possess a reverend to write a book about OMG? Enquiring minds LOVE to know these things here at More Cowbell!

  2. Hubby and I once passed a Urology conference, and there was a HUGE sign that all these men were getting photographed next to. It said: “Is Your Penis Too Big?” Later, we passed another sign, this one said: “Prader WIlli Syndrome: It’s Not Your Fault.” I asked my husband what that was. He said, “Let’s just say there’s a reason why no one is taking pictures of themselves next to this sign.” Medically, it’s not funny either, but seriously, can you say micropenis? I took a picture of myself next to that sign. Sadly, it was lost in the great computer crash last year. I’d planned to blog about how NO ONE wanted to admit to having a tiny penis.

    Driving me crazy that I can’t remember what sketch comedy show did these scene I’m thinking of…it’s like one of those human interest news stories with soft, sad music where they talk about how brave this poor kid is, and eventually you find out he’s been “cursed” with a huge penis. Like they pull back and there’s just this enormous blurred-out spot between his legs and then they put him in all these ridiculous situations while they talk about how he manages to get by. It was really funny and would be great to post the clip here. But I can’t. Aren’t you glad I brought it up anyway?

  7. H-O-W-L-I-N-G again over the OMG syndrome. I remember the first time it posted, and for months had to chose to clarify in brackets that I was referring to the normal definition of the acronym.

    OMG! [In the non-Jenny-Hansen-of-More-Cowbell-Fame sense of the phrase]

    What I can not believe is that you didn’t purchase the book so you could share details with us beyond the blurbs. Nefarious Inquiring mind(s) want to know what advice they offer for Unzipping, Coming out to your friends and family.

    I’ve thrown away money on less worthy knowledge. I’m off to The Amazon to investigate and purchase a souvenir. Between the Covers of OMG coming soon to a glob near you.

    Seriously.

      I’ll bet they buy it too, Susie. Some guys on facebook want to have it on their bookshelves just to see what response they get.

      (And that right there, folks, is the biggest difference between men and women. Women would NEVER have a book on their shelves called “How to Live with a Huge Vagina.”)

  19. Hi Jenny:

    Came across your fun blog while trying to find an answer to a question for which I can’t find an answer: why are humans the only mammals (or so it seems) who not uncommonly develop ridiculously huge body parts – namely spectacularly oversized buttocks, breasts, hips, and yes, genitalia?
