It matters to an extent. There is a large range in which I don't think it really matters (the average range). But then you have really small where it's going to not be able to be felt as much. I think girth is more important than length. Then you have too big..either too long or too wide and that can just be painful and there's limited positions.
So, I guess "size matters" but that doesn't mean that bigger is better. I actually prefer average size. Feels good in the hand, easy to give oral the way I like to give oral without gagging, large enough that it gives good pleasure and not so large that we have to be careful in certain positions.
I can say though that I've been with a wide range of sizes and the guy who had the smallest of them all (he had average girth but was pretty short) was actually the guy who was the second best in bed (behind my husband). The guy who had the largest was the one with whom sex, both oral and PIV, was the most awkward. Once I was with a guy who had an extremely curved and extremely small penis, it was about the width of a thumb and not much longer than my pointer finger, I didn't actually ever have sex with him, but I have to say that even fooling around with him was pretty awkward and I have to wonder if it could even really be felt much during sex.
I guess I somewhat agree with Gunsmoke, except that I do not think that " within a normal range - being on the larger side is preferable to smaller." I have actually found that in that range it doesn't really matter and it's more about how you use it. It only matters to me when it's beyond the normal range whether it be above or below that range.
