Are 'how big are your breasts?' and 'how big is your cock?' contextually the same question?

Are the normal answers given comparable? Why is a rather specific answer expected for the former, but not the latter?

Time for a little social mores research.

yikes. i lead a sheltered life, it seems. someone sending me a penis pic, with or without a gauge, would probably offend me quite a lot.

Some of them do include a 'scale' of some sort.

And no, I don't find it terribly exciting or amusing to receive such.

I can *hear* you saying it in my head *grin*

Sometime we'll have to talk so I can see how close my internal monologue was to reality.

Well, you were on the speyshul list that could see the post with my phone number. :-)

Or you can send me yours. LD is free in The Neighborhood after all.

I can see that, but the underlying assumption is that they must work for *some* percentage of people.

That concerns me....

hmmm. who was it I was talking to the other day, who said that he actually had middling success with exceedingly crude pickup lines? can't remember. (shows how much of an impression he made on me, but anyway) he was saying that about 1 in 3 would go home with him, even if he was rude enough to just walk up to them and say something like "if i get you drunk, will you go home with me?"
