Who writes the entries? These are personal answers written by the guys who feature in each post. We have a very light touch editing approach, often not even fixing spelling errors and structural problems.
How have you got the entries? We've used social media to seek responses. There are also links from our main website.
How do you decide which entries to post? There's no particular type of guy that we're looking for, except that:
they must live in or have been born in Australia. So long as you meet one of those criteria, every guy is welcome.
Currently, we only post entries that have a nonsexual photo and where the guy has ticked the “agree” box.
If you meet those two criteria we will post your entry. Entries without a photo aren’t being posted at the moment, nor are guys without a link to Australia. We might post them in the future.
Can I help? If you meet the criteria then please help us by sharing your story here. You may be asked to sign in to Gmail so you can securely access our form.
Who are these random anonymous dudes? If you're wondering that then probably this isn't the right place for you. In 2018 we started listing Australian celebrities who had revealed their own status. Why? Well, the idea was to help guys who are uncomfortable with what they've got down there. We thought knowing that a successful person others aspire to is just the same as you, might give a confidence boost.
But we find it more compelling to focus on everyday Aussie men. Regular people aren't boring and we think learning about people’s life experience is more exciting than fantasising about TV stars and social media types.
How do you make sure they are genuine and not catfishers? We can't entirely. There are various legal declarations you must make before we'll post your entry. You can only respond from your email address once (although we can't see your email address, it's genuinely anonymous). If you want to create multiple email accounts, then we are alerted by multiple responses coming from a single ISP address (although we can't see ISP addresses, again it's anonymous). If someone wants to create dozens of fake email accounts and use multiple ISPs then frankly we might get catfished. If we become concerned with an entry, we will err on the side of caution and not post it.
Are you an intactivist or pro-circumcision? We get Twitter attacks from intactivists who accuse us of spreading pro-circumcision fetish when we mention a circumcised celebrity. There are also pro-circumcision websites that warn we are an anti-circumcision propaganda site. The interest isn’t either, it is based on social studies.
Circumcision was an important Australian social custom. In most cultures social customs like this don't stop. So we set out to understand why Australia is different.
It became clear that circumcision produces incredibly emotive responses from those in favour and against. This fact was quite a shock. That emotiveness has left a surprisingly large number of Aussie guys with hang-ups about something they can't help.
We think this project, where normal Aussie guys share their thoughts about an intimate subject, is really fascinating. It will help make guys concerned about being circumcised or not, to feel positive about what they've got.
So, we're not pro or anti either. We are anti anyone who make others feel bad about things they can't help.
Does that mean the posts are edited to be even between circumcised and uncircumcised guys? No, we don’t do that. We generally post in the order entries which meet our criteria arrive.
Our editorial approach is pretty light touch, so some posts might include views that could cause some people offense.
We’ve noticed there's a disproportionate number of responses from millennial guys, who statistically are more like to be uncircumcised. That is probably to be expected, as younger guys are more likely to be tech-savvy and used to sharing dick pics!
We'd really love to hear from more Aussie guys who aren't millennials! (But if you are a millennial, please answer too!)
Does this mean no more celebrities? We have been taking a break from posting celebrities. We are going to start up again in the future.
Why are so many posts from Brisbane guys about the same age? A group of five mates who are studying at a well-known university there got in touch with our main page as a bit of a joke, asking "what the hell" is your website about.
We explained generally guys can't help what they've got. Being made to feel bad because of that is something we want to change. In the end, they decided to support the cause and responded to our survey. The target was 21 posts, they got us there! Thanks guys, you know who you are.
